Outdoor Boudoir Boston

      From a response on a Facebook post this is what happened one very hot July day.  My friend Deedee mentioned that she has a pretty cool backyard.  And that I was welcome to shoot in it. Yeah.  It was a pretty cool backyard.  From her back porch you get to the deck (complete with bar and hot tub!) that overlooks the water and several levels down there’s a dock and access to the water.  This is just where she hangs out after work.  And when I saw it I realized how much of a nature fix one gets this close to the water.

      Talia reached out to me from a post on fb.  She loved our mission of body positivity.  Having struggled with body imagine herself she felt ready to get in front of a camera and embrace herself as she is.  My pal Carla (who I also met through fb -so thank you MZ!) joined us as make up stylist, keeping it fairly natural and really bringing out the color in Talia’s eyes.

      Body image is a life long work in progress for most of us.  But I’ve found it’s a journey that gets easier every year.

      Pink & Black Vintage Peignoir

      This vintage peignoir (barbie pink with black lace) was a piece I found last year that I had to buy for the studio.

      Keeping it Simple in a Black Silk Slip

      There are times that I adore the maximalist aesthetic.  You might say our decorating “style” is just that.  Or you might say that we need to do some more editing of our home.  In any case, for portraits I prefer to keep wardrobe simple and let the person be the focus of the image.  Talia wore a simple black silk slip for the portraits under the dock and in the water.

      Glad we got to cool off at the end of the shoot with a quick dip in the water! A huge shout out to Talia for rocking her first portrait shoot and to Carla for her artistry.
