Forty and Fabulous Former Playboy model {Ventura Boudoir}

Apr 15

This smoking hot lady has been photographed many many times and like most professional models, she has a good idea of how she wants to be portrayed on film. It was a bit intimidating because she was continuously posing. Usually, I’m the one directing every angle so it was refreshing just snapping away and capturing some beautiful in the moment type shots. For example the sequence photos of her on the chair taking a moment to herself indulging in her beauty are two of my favorites. I learned after shooting for 15 minutes to speak up and have her hold poses. Out of all the professional models I have photographed, she is definitely the most down to earth and peaceful woman.

“He thought I’d never do anything like this.” {Ventura Boudoir}

Mar 29

Little did he know, she was creating a memorable gift for their six month wedding anniversary. Just Newlyweds, this beautiful lady decided to WOW her husband with an unexpected gift that made him so incredibly happy. I get this from time to time where husbands are utterly shocked that their wife would do a boudoir shoot. Its a great surprise for both of them really, she gets the pleasure of empowering herself through her sexuality and he too is reminded of her beauty and love they have for eachother. It’s such a beautiful thing and I feel so honored to par take in this intimate experience. The photos were presented to him in a twenty page 8×8 grey linen covered photo book that came in a grey and white chevron cloth. The book is so darling that I ‘m getting one for my studio!

Bridal Boudoir {Ventura Boudoir Studio}

Feb 24

This young beautiful bride brought some DIY props for her bridal boudoir shoot. The rose bouquet was simple and it added a timeless touch. I used a purple back drop to give contrast to her white veil (also home-made just for her shoot.) I really enjoy the color pop and I think it went well with her pin-up inspired hair and make-up and lingerie. Her pretty and pink shoes were bought from Pin Up Girl Clothing . The tassels were my favorite touch and also added a feel from the Pin-up era. The photos came out very soft, sensual and timeless… a perfect gift for the lucky groom.

“Not Just Pretty Photos” {ventura boudoir photography studio}

Feb 7

I spent about two hours on this shoot. My model wanted to do something out of the box and “not just pretty pictures.” I said, Okay! Sign me-up! I used so many killer backdrops. First, I asked Charles (an amazing mixed-media artist) whose studio was across from mine if I could photograph in his space. He said “Sure!” It was so fun picking out the perfect outfit for each scenario. My second shoot was done near the main entrance of my building which provides beautiful and dramatic side light. Third, we shot at the dance studio upstairs and I utilized the sky beams to reflect off the camera. These photos in her ballet slippers are so poetic to me after I learned her story. Lastly, we shot inside my studio and got some really sexy and fun photos for her hubby far out at sea. #venturaboudoirstudio #boudoirposes #bap1love #barbaraalessandra #naturallightboudoir #santabarbaraboudoir #losangelesboudoirstudio
