Sweet Car-o-line, Pah Pah Pah! Okay, now that we're warmed up and you can't get that song out of your head, let me answer your first question. Why is a male shooting boudoir? When I started professional photography I was really concerned about lighting, camera settings- all the technical stuff. And that is really important. But what I found was that people would feel comfortable with me behind the camera. All of a sudden the connections were as important as the techy stuff. I could hold a conversation while we were photographing, and having fun while leading them through posing. At the end of the day, brides and moms would hug me before I left the reception. Models would hug me and thank me at the end of their sessions. Let me be clear, hugs are not mandatory! But it showed me that people were liking what I was doing.
When I began boudoir, I would hear comments like, "I was really nervous when we started, but this was fun!" Or "I sooo needed this!" I quickly learned that boudoir was more than taking pictures in lingerie. It means building confidence and empowerment to so many women. I love to hear those comments (especially even before they had seen their previews!). I assure you that, even though I like to use humor and keep a light atmosphere, that your whole experience will be in a professional and stress-free manner.
I am stoked that you are interested in me and my work, and would love to talk with you about your own boudoir experience! Thank you for being here!
Lo, Hair & Makeup
I am so fortunate to partner with Lo. She is not only an acclaimed stylist, but one of the nicest people I've ever met. Her easy-going personality makes you feel right at home. She is fun, easy to talk to and one of the best in the Bay area.
"I have been a cosmetologist for 8 years. I have worked in a salon for many years but my heart is set on special events including Bridal, Photo Shoots, Boudoir and Prints. I love to make someone feel absolutely beautiful and this is why I love what I do! I am proud to co-own my business with a great friend of mine!"
Her accomplishments and awards are too long to list here, but you can see her full bio at Style Hair and Makeup.
Paying it Forward
I believe that kids are our future and invest in them. I had the privilege to volunteer and be a big brother for a couple young men through Big Brothers Big Sisters when I was in Cincinnati. Now that I am in Florida, I donate a portion of every session to BBBS in Tampa.
