Bridal Boudoir {Ventura & Santa Barbara Boudoir}

Jul 16

I was really excited about working with this woman because she is an artist herself, so of course we connected right off the bat! Later into the shoot we even learned we have the same birthdays, talk about meant to be!  This beautiful artist is also a professional contortionist, dancer and Hollywood actress, and naturally she was confident with the direction she wanted for the shoot.  The setting was simple, to create a contemporary bridal boudoir shoot with a grey backdrop. She brought in about 100 different pairs of white panties with bows, which is great because if I know just one thing about men is that they LOVE Beautiful behinds ;) .  I hope you enjoy these beautiful bridal photos and contact me to set up your shoot for your future hubby.

 

Skater girl photo shoot {Ventura & Santa Barbara Boudoir}

May 15

This photo shoot is a little different from your everyday studio boudoir shoot but I felt very comfortable creating some super sexy shots, the only downfall was not shooting all day.  I think we were just warming up in the studio, I envisioned doing a boudoir photo story and photographing her skating to the beach in a cute itsy bitsy bikini and wrap up the shoot with some sexy sport illustrated beach shots.   My mind keeps creating and its a good thing I set a time limit because I would not stop shooting! Of course the element that sparked my imagination was her husbands skate board.  (side note: I grew up LOVING skaters and married one myself..gives me the chills just thinking about my husband grinding the streets.) The skateboard is also the same brand that my husband loves so I was super stoked to incorporate it into the shoot.  The super model (and super mother of four) came into the shoot super shy and timid but I was able to capture some very relaxed naturally sexy shots that both her husband and the model were very pleased with.  Thank you guys for having me, I hope to photograph the entire clan someday!

Holiday Boudoir {ventura & santa barbara boudoir studio}

Jan 14

It was real busy here during December and the beat goes on for January.  Boudoir photo season is in full effect and we got a lot of ladies calling in for last minute shoots!  I was happy to fit in this last minute boudoir photo shoot for this lovely lady.  Her plan was to make a 2015 calendar for her  boyfriend’s Christmas present.  One lucky guy will spend the rest of the year admiring some beautiful photos of this heart throb.  We got at least 24 awesome photos including some nudes so her lucky beau will enjoy a calender for 2016 too. What a great way to knock off two gifts in one!  Maybe she’ll use the photos for V-Day? BAP is working on creating an amazing Valentines Day Special real soon! The special will last for the rest of this winter. Cool! Contact BAP to book your Valentines Day shoot!

 

 

My Mad Men Model {Ventura Boudoir}

Dec 11

I was totally blown away by how close my model looks like the girl from Mad Men. I mean really, I felt like I was sent back in time and I kept waiting for Don Draper to walk into the studio with a cigarette in his mouth. She was so humble about her beauty that it really magnified it even more. As she was getting her hair and makeup done, I learned a few things about her, one she enjoys reading and writing so much that she made a career out of it. I thought bringing her into my neighbor Nash Rightmer’s art studio would be a perfect way to begin the shoot. Eclectic antiques fill the nooks and crannies of his studio along with his AMAZING mix media art. He has some pretty interesting items along with a type writer and some books from a time long ago. Of course my model spotted out all the books and noticed one from Ayn Rand a female writer known for her philosophical non-fiction works.   I really appreciate how the familiarity of the books made her feel comfortable thus making for some really astonishing images. As always, I tell all my models to bring a piece of wardrobe that is iconic to them. For me its my hats, gotta have em all the time. For her, it was this REAL leather riders jacket. Wouldn’t you know, this gentle soul is fearless and enjoys some bike rides with her hubby. I can only imagine what kind of fearless writings she will be known for on top of her looking like hot spicy celebrities! Lets book a shoot, you and I, click here for the first step!
