Outdoor Boudoir in Dallas, Texas

Dallas Boudoir Photography - Wonderland Boudoir 02.jpg

For the last week or so it has been raining nonstop in Dallas. As I listen to the soft beating of raining hitting the hard concrete of my patio I can't help but appreciate everything that has happened to me over the summer.

Wonderland Boudoir - Boudoir Dallas 09.jpg

It has been an incredibly busy summer! I have been blessed to be booked and busy (can you tell I watch too much Love and Hip Hop Hollywood while editing?). I have met soooooo many ah-mazing ladies this summer and I feel so happy!

Wonderland Boudoir - Boudoir Dallas 04.jpg

What has made this year so much more amazing is that fact that I have had a TON of repeat customer book again!

Dallas Boudoir Photography - Wonderland Boudoir 02.jpg

While I love and cherish all my clients I have to say that one of my favorite people to shoot is actually my best friend Ms. S. If you have been following this blog for a while then you know that I shot Ms. S last year. You can check out those incredible images HERE.

I LOVE shooting women for a second go. The main reason is that they are so much more confident because they know what to expect. Yes, there are still some nerves involved with shooting no matter how many times you get in front of the camera... but at least this time it's not completely foreign and warming up takes no time at all.

Another reason why doing a repeat session is great for you and the photographer is now you can let loose even more and bring more raw passion and emotion to your photos.

Dallas Boudoir Photography - Wonderland Boudoir 04.jpg

Listen, this session is all about you and it's for you. Go all the way the fuck out and enjoy yourself, your life, and the progress that you have made. This is what Ms. S did for your second session together... but I will let her tell you her story.


This was your second time shooting with Wonderland Boudoir. How did you feel going through your second session with us?

I felt much more comfortable this tune I around. I was able to get into the zone much easier, and I felt like I was able to take direction more easily because I was familiar with Korin’s instructions.


What did you learn from the last session that helped you with this one?

I remembered from last time that breathing was important!! Also, knowing how I had posed before, and what those shots looked like, helped me make adjustments without needing Korin to tell me how to do it. Also, I felt more comfortable being spontaneous and going with the movement.


What was your favorite part about getting ready for your second session?

Planning out the location and discussing the fun runway-style makeup.

Dallas Boudoir Photography - Wonderland Boudoir 05.jpg


You did an amazing job doing your makeup. What products did you use? What was your inspiration for your look?

I used the Natasha Denona Lila palette for my eyes, and Tarte’s Lights Camera Flashes for my mascara. I really wanted a high-fashion, runway style look; something that you wouldn’t normally wear, but that was still pretty.



The first time we shot together we were inside. How was shooting outside for you? Would you suggest that for other women wanting a boudoir session?


I’m glad we shot outside for the second shoot. I think if I had been outside the first time, I would’ve been too self-conscious. But knowing how I would look, and feeling more comfortable, I loved shooting outside!! It was very freeing! I would definitely suggest it to others.

Dallas Boudoir Photography - Wonderland Boudoir 06.jpg

What is something that you learned about yourself after your second session?

Since this was my second shoot, I wasn’t *as* shocked by how I looked in the pics. But I was able to appreciate even more this time my natural attractiveness and the way my personality came out.



What are some suggestions that you would give other women considering a boudoir session for first or second time?

Above all else, trust your photographer!!! That was something that I realized/learned - of course, as the model, you want your photos to look good. Your photographer wants them to look good too!!! Your photographer is not going to let you look bad!!

Wonderland Boudoir - Boudoir Dallas 02.jpg


For you third session what would your ultimate goal be?

To push the boundaries even further. Crazier makeup, more provocative poses, more public locations.

Wonderland Boudoir - Boudoir Dallas 06.jpg

Please add any final thoughts you might have.

You’re awesome and amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dallas Boudoir Photography - Wonderland Boudoir 09.jpg


For the sake of transparency, I gave her $20 for that last statement. LOL. No... I didn't... kinda...

Not going to lie, I had a BLAST shooting Ms. S a second time. I can't wait until we shoot again for the third time. I'm hoping I can get her in a jungle of some sort... perhaps a hot air balloon. What is something crazy you think I can talk her into?

Vintage Take on Modern Boudoir | Wonderland Boudoir | Arlo Nomad Hotel

Wonderland Boudoir, New York, Arlo Nomad Hotel-2.jpg
Wonderland Boudoir, Arlo Nomad Hotel,Izzy New York 2017-3.jpg

Wonderland Boudoir is based out of Dallas, Texas.  However, we do like to travel a bit for our work.  In 2017 I had the pleasure to make it out to New York and shoot some incredible women.  

One of those women ended up being Izzy.  Izzy brought with her an amazing makeup artist named Nicky.  Together we all made magic that ended up going pretty viral!

I had a model call for New York and Izzy replied back to me with some inspiration that she wanted to shoot.  It was classic images from glamourous black women from decades past.  We decided to pay homage to these pioneers of black female entertainment while still keeping a modern feel to the looks.  I promise you, these photos couldn't have turned out any better.

Izzy came with her beautiful full 4c afro.  What I loved most is that her hair had a tint of purple in it that made the photos pop!

For makeup, Nicky decided to go for a natural glam look.  She kept the skin and lips pretty natural but really glammed the eyes up to match with the hair.  Not too often do makeup artist add glitter eyeshadow looks to editorials shoots, but Nicky did and I just died over how amazing the payoff was.

Wonderland Boudoir, Arlo Nomad Hotel, Izzy New York 2017-10.jpg

We did this photoshoot in the Arlo NoMad Hotel located in Midtown New York.  I have to say that I LOVED that hotel.  There is so much this hotel got right.  Just so you know, the Arlo Nomad Hotel is a micro room hotel.  Those hotel rooms are soooooo damn small, but the tradeoff is that you're not spending $400 a night in Manhattan.  The hotel was brand new, SMELLED LIKE HEAVEN, had awesome food, great decor, TONS of young travelers, and the BEST ROOFTOP BAR IN NEW YORK!  This bar has an unobstructed view of the Empire State building.  Next time I'm in New York I will do a FULL review of the hotel.  

Like I said, one of the best parts of this incredible hotel was the decor.  In fact, we used the hotel as our playground.  One thing that I learned in 2016 was not to be shy shooting boudoir. I once did a boudoir session with a mom watching.  If I can shoot boudoir while moms is looking over my shoulder, you can pretty much do boudoir in any circumstance.  

Boudoir in a Hotel Business Center

Wonderland Boudoir, Arlo Nomad Hotel, Izzy New York 2017.jpg

The reason why I love the women I work with is because they are fearless.  I love working with ladies who are open to my ideas and locations.  In fact, most women are already aware of that because they booked me for my eye.  I spend a lot of time exploring locations and finding the best spots.  My first evening in New York I explored the entire hotel and came across their beautiful business center.  During my exploration, no one was using the business center.  I just thought this was par for the course at the hotel.  Yeah, that was a lie.

Of course on the day and time we need to shoot there was a gang load of people in this room ACTUALLY working.  So I did the annoying photographer thing and asked people to move.  Yeah, nothing is going to stop me from getting a good shot.  I was blessed not to have any pushback and promised to be quick.

Wonderland Boudoir, Arlo Nomad Hotel, Izzy New York 2017-8.jpg

I have to say that this business center was wonderful.  I would have done more but I didn't want to be a total inconvenience to the people that were there before me. 

Since we were in the business center I decided that we shouldn't get too wild with the wardrobe.  So we decided on a sexy black body suit.  The leopard print robe was only with us because we wanted to be modest when coming down to the business center.  However, the robe worked wonders as a layering piece.  I love how it effortlessly hangs off Izzy's body in these shots.  

Wonderland Boudoir, Arlo Nomad Hotel, Izzy New York 2017-11.jpg

I am also a natural light shooter.  I love how the light worked so well against her melinated complexion.  The decor, setting, and styling all worked together to create something so breathtakingly beautiful.

The second look was really for Nicky's portfolio.  She needed to get some good headshots of Izzy.  Therefore I set that up.  These shots are some the ones that went viral all over the Gram.  I adore these shots because of the confidence, love, and pride displayed in her eyes.  Her subtle movements were on point.  Because she was so comfortable, her photos created a lot of strength with a pinch of desire in the eyes.  Izzy nailed it.

The last session we did was in my hotel room.  We decided to keep it really casual.  The robe she's wearing is a piece I picked up in Playa del Carmen February of 2016.  I actually purchased this piece from H&M. If I'm going to be honest, I originally bought it for me, but it has been such an incredible stable in my boudoir shoots that I keep it.  

The color of the robe perfectly matches my personal aesthetic for the brand.  As you guys know, I dig burnt earthy pastel colors.  This robe delivers on that.  Due to the fact that this is a beach robe built to have a lot of room for movement.

Izzy let the piece fall dramatically off her while still maintaining the emotion of alluring and innocent.  

Wonderland Boudoir, Arlo Nomad Hotel, Izzy New York 2017-41.jpg

 

We did a brief interview with Izzy about her session.  This is what she had to say:

Why did you decide to do a session?


I had no experience in it, so I thought to try it.

Before your session what were you expecting? How was that different once you finished your session?  

I expected not to perform as well, however with the right direction from Korin I started to feel empowered and confident.

What was your favorite part of the whole process?


My favorite part was how Korin made me feel really confident while shooting.

What would you say to women who are on the fence about doing boudoir? How as the session impacted your ideas of boudoir?


I believe everyone should feel as confident and empowered as I did while shooting boudoir: I believe every woman should do a boudoir shoot, it truly made me feel like the goddess I am.

Izzy New York 2017-39.jpg

I want to cosign on something that Izzy said.  When you shoot with us at Wonderland Boudoir you don't need to know how to pose.  We will help you 100% with that.  I just wanted you to show up and feel relaxed.  We got you.

Question of the Day: What is the one thing that's stopping you from getting a boudoir session? 

Outdoor Boudoir With a French Tub Full of Oranges | Dallas Boudoir Photography

Dallas Boudoir, Wonderland Boudoir Outside Boudoir Tub Lemons Oranges

It's not very often that I have the opportunity to shoot my own creative boudoir concepts.  I still work full time and juggling that with a full-time boudoir business can make sneaking some "just for me" shooting time in rare.  

An opportunity did come up in late last summer.  Every year I try to attend the Double Toasted anniversary party in Austin, Texas (my hometown).  When I'm in town I like to host sessions where I shoot people that come in for the gathering.  

One day before the anniversary party,  I was on Instagram drooling over my fave photographers latest postings when I came across this beautiful location that I assumed was in the South of France. I saved the photo as inspiration and moved on.  Through the course of 2017 I would see this location randomly pop up on my feed. I would pray that I could find a location that beautiful.

Dallas Boudoir, Wonderland Boudoir Outside Boudoir  French Tub Lemons Oranges Citrus-14.jpg

One day I was talking to my friend Danielle, who is part of the Double Toasted crew, and she showed me photos of a recent shot she had done in Austin.  Low and behold it was in the same location that I bookmarked a number of times.  I freaked out and quickly asked her about the whereabouts of this beautiful location.  She told me it was this secret location in Austin.   She gave me the details of the place and we went half on booking my dream setting.  

I knew I was going to shot Danielle, but I wanted to shoot another girl to maximize this dreamy location.  Jazzy came across a beautifully melinated woman from San Antonio named Michele.  

Michele was a TREASURE to work with (as you can see from the photos).  Michele loves doing boudoir and signed on to this personal project because she loved the concept. 

Dallas Boudoir, Wonderland Boudoir Outside Boudoir  French Tub Lemons Oranges Citrus-3.jpg

Outdoor Boudoir Concept

I always shoot three looks when I do personal sessions.  I like to have versatility.  I feel like every good story had three acts.  I also take into consideration the type of emotion I want my muse to display.  Being evocative sells the image.    

In Michele's case we I wanted something that was hot, passionate, full of desire and confidence.  Boy did she delivery!  

Look one was a simple bodysuit that Danielle donated for this shoot.  This beautiful piece was from Victoria's Secret.  You can never go wrong with a bodysuit from Victoria's Secret.  When doing a boudoir session outside it's very important to consider the time of year.  Our outdoor boudoir session was in August so summer was in full swing.  During summer we still have a lot of green but because we are in Texas there is a lot of warmth in nature. While the bodysuit had a lot of detail it was monochromatic.   I wanted the cream bodysuit because it did show warmth without competing with Michelle.    

If I'm to be honest, I really like shooting with monochromatic pieces.  I don't like busy prints in photos.  I feel as though it takes away from the muse and the story.  

For the makeup, Jazzy decided to highlight Michelle for the Gods!  We wanted an out of this world yet healthy glow to her skin.  Her makeup perfectly matched her skin complexion, but again, it did not compete with her.  We wanted her beautiful and natural color to illuminate to help push the story forward.  

Dallas Boudoir, Wonderland Boudoir Outside Boudoir  French Tub Lemons Oranges Citrus-6.jpg

The second look was a jaw-dropping dusty lavender piece that I picked up from Forever 21 with help from a stylist.  The thing I love about dark skin is that most colors look amazing against it.  This dusty purple was no exception.  I love burnt pastel colors (just take a look at my site).  I am drawn to burnt pastels because they have color but it's never over saturated.  I never like anything to complete with my muse.   

Dallas Boudoir, Wonderland Boudoir Outside Boudoir  French Tub Lemons Oranges Citrus-38.jpg

The last look was hands down my fave.  We have all seen milk baths, but I wanted to do something I had personally never seen... a citrus bath.  What better way to do that than a french tub outdoors in the Texas heat with a rusted chandelier hanging over us?  

I decided that I wanted to stay on the warmer side of the spectrum with the fruits.  Therefore I cut up lemons, oranges, and grapefruit.  I believe I had 5 bags of fruit.  Let me tell you, I did not cut nearly enough citrus fruits.  To make this really work we needed a solid 8 bags of fruit.  We filled the tub up first then added the fruit.  Next, we had Michelle submerge herself in the lukewarm water.

Honestly, I wanted Michelle totally nude.  However, there were five people around in the outdoor area and I felt weird asking her to fully undress.  Therefore if I felt weird I didn't want Michele to feel that way either.  Not feeling comfortable while shooting shows on your face... and I can't Photoshop emotion.  

Dallas Boudoir, Wonderland Boudoir Outside Boudoir  French Tub Lemons Oranges Citrus-43.jpg

With that being said, outside of styling and location, the most important thing that you need to get correct in the photoshoot is emotion.  What do you want the viewer the feel? Do you want them to feel your sadness?  How about happiness?  Or perhaps you just want the viewer to want you.  When shooting I do not expect my muse or client to know how to pose.  I help direct them in the way that I want them so we can get those epic shots. When shooting with Wonderland Boudoir you should never worry about not knowing how to pose.  We will show you what to do. 

For emotion, we focused on confidence and desire.  My goal was to have the viewer wither want her or want to be her.  

Below is a short interview we did with Michele regarding her boudoir experience with Wonderland Boudoir.  

Before your session what were you expecting?  How was that different once you finished your session?  

After Korin talked to me about her creative concept, and when I met her everything she what she talked about came to life, even better than I thought.

What was your favorite part of the whole process?
My favorite part was just being apart of the process and being able to model for Korin. She’s a creative individual and she is very enjoyable to work with.

What would you say to a woman who is on the fence about boudoir?  How was the session impacted your ideas of boudoir?

I would like to say to other women who are thinking about doing their first boudoir session, is that Korin will be the perfect photographer for you. She’s creative, she knows what she’s doing and makes you feel at ease throughout the entire shoot.

Now let me shower you with photos from this session!

Beautiful, Sexy Boudoir Photos in Dallas

I met this girl when I was 10 years old and what I loved about her is that she had so much soul!  

I'm not sure what I did in my last life to deserve such a beautiful friend but I am happy that I have Ms. S in my life.  I'm not sure where exactly I would be in this life if I didn't have her.  Fortunately, I never have to worry about that.  I just pray that everyone in this life is blessed with their own Ms. S.  

Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Dallas, Sexy Photographer Dallas, Sexy Photos in Dallas, Sexy Lingerie Dallas

Even though we have lived in different cities as adults, I still feel like we have grown together.  Carving out our own paths in life has never steered us away from each other.  

Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Dallas, Sexy Photographer Dallas, Sexy Photos in Dallas, Sexy Lingerie Dallas

Ms. S is one of the most brilliant people you will ever meet.  Yes, I am saying that because I am totally biased. 

Jesus, best friend our not, she is gorgeous.  I am happy she allowed me the opportunity to shoot her in such an intimate state.  Yes, even though we have bared our souls to each other... it can be kinda weird to bare your most physical parts to someone, even if it is your BFF. 

In fact, and Ms. S will correct me if I'm wrong, but her mom was even surprised I hadn't seen her in the gift God gave her.  I just laughed because I NEVER thought about it... then again, why would I have?  LOL.  In 24 years or friendship, this had never come up.  LOL.  

While she is the closest thing I will ever have to a sister, I still treated this session like I would any other client.  I went through the same talk with her as I would anyone else.  Even though she knows I have shot a number of amazing sessions with other women, it never really hits home until you're the one in front of the camera.  

Just like all my beautiful clients, Ms. S was nervous.  Yes, even after 24 years or friendship she was nervous.  I can't blame her, I would be too.  You feel so vulnerable at the beginning of your session.  Not sure of what to do or how to do it. All you know is that you are here... in front of the boudoir photographer... and you have to finish this experience. 

Just like all experiences, once you actually start taking the steps you will begin to drop that sense of fear.  You begin trusting my words, but most importantly, trusting yourself.  Creating sexy and intimate portraiture is a work of art.  Like all art, you HAVE to be okay with placing your authentic and vulnerable being out there.  At the end of that day, that's the true power in all this.  The power to expose your most vulnerable side to you for the world to see... and then just not giving a fuck about it.  

Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Dallas, Sexy Photographer Dallas, Sexy Photos in Dallas, Sexy Lingerie Dallas

 Boudoir is about freedom of self-expression.  Having a boudoir session is about you.  It's the story yo want to tell. It is to celebrate your unique beauty, to set free your vulnerabilities, and just to give yourself permission to be your true and authentic self. 

Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Dallas, Sexy Photographer Dallas, Sexy Photos in Dallas, Sexy Lingerie Dallas, Curvy Women Sexy Photos

This is what I love about boudoir.  Women giving themselves permission to love who they really are without the care of what the rest of the world thinks.

What does Ms. S think? 


I'd been interested in doing a boudoir session for myself for awhile. I was really intrigued with the idea of doing these empowering, self-loving pictures, just for me. But I kept freaking out that I wasn't skinny enough, or that I would see the pictures and have my worst fears about my body confirmed. 
When I finally worked up the courage to do the shoot, Korin was a dream come true. Before we even got started, she walked me through step by step what she was going to do. She showed me the entire area where we would be shooting, told me her ideas for some various shots, and explained the rundown of the shoot. As she started taking pictures, Korin was very clear on everything she was doing - she would let me know when she was checking the light, she would tell me exactly how to pose, what to do with my hands, how to breath, what facial expressions to utilize. Korin knew everything she wanted from me! It was such a relief, because I've never been good at being a model, and Korin let me know every little thing that I needed to do. 
I loved how relaxed the whole shoot was. I never felt rushed, or like I was being asked to pose in an uncomfortable way. I felt very secure, and I was assured that Korin would not let me look ridiculous in any of the pictures. Honestly, when I saw the finished product, I was literally at a loss for words. I knew the pictures were me, and I knew they hadn't been photoshopped, but the pictures looked so amazing that it took me a few seconds to realize that they really were of me! Korin brought out everything that I love about my body, and made me feel so empowered, beautiful, and confident! I'm already planning my next shoot with Wonderland Boudoir!!!

This right here is why I LOVE shooting boudoir.

Freeing Yourself From Self Imposed Prisons

Sexy Photos Dallas, Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Dallas, Outdoor Sexy Photos Dallas, Sexy Loft Photos Dallas, Female Boudoir Photographer

I love shooting boudoir in Dallas. Everyone deserves beautiful and sexy photos of herself.  As a female boudoir photographer, I love capturing all the small nuances that make a boudoir photo Pinterest worthy. Yes, hair and makeup play an important role, but the most important role in a photo is the element of emotion.  How does this photo make you feel? What do you want to do after seeing it? How does this person feel while shooting?  What was going through her mind? What was the photographer feeling while capturing the shot?

Perhaps I am the only person who wonders that last questions since I am a photographer. I have been shooting since I was 14.  While sitting in my High School photojournalism class my teacher quickly learned that in photography I am drawn to the element of art.  It was never about a perfectly composed photo or if the highlight were perfect.  It was about the story behind the pictures and if could I accurately tell it from a single shot.  

This is why I can't wait to showcase this next set.  I shot this back in February.  While that was three months ago it feels like it was just yesterday.  Sometimes I just need the freedom to create and shoot.  Photography is an art form to me. When shooting this beautiful soul  I just wanted to shoot freely, make mistakes, and be without all the production. No hair. No makeup.  Just God, the muse, and myself. 

Enter Ms. Jay.  She was exactly what I was looking for. Confident, fun, beautiful, subtly sexy with just a bit of quirky and nerdy. We spoke on the phone and communicated through email.  I told her I was in the process of changing my style and I need to shoot with more passion, more authenticity, and more emotion.  I need to push beyond the fashion, hair, and makeup and just focus on the core.  The core being two people creating a masterpiece. The core being, "Who is this person."

I wanted to shoot through my heart.  With reckless abandon.  I wanted to feel free. To escape all the barriers I put up and put all of me out there. While, admittedly, there was more I could have done to push myself when I look at this set,  I am super happy with the results.  

Sexy Photos Dallas, Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Dallas, Outdoor Sexy Photos Dallas, Sexy Loft Photos Dallas, Female Boudoir Photographer

What I am most happy about is that J trusted me.  She left nothing on the table and worked with me. Her comfort with herself made me more comfortable with myself.  While most of my sessions aren't centered around me, this one was.  

What did I learn from this project?
The first, last, and most important relationship you will ever have will be the one you have with yourself.  People can detect authenticity in your work.  If you aren't happy with where things are going it is your responsibility to change that.  No one else is required to help you, but you.  

I learned that when I'm honest with what I really want to see out of my clients they are more willing to listen.  There have been times when the client only half gets the pose I want and I will tell them that will work... but when culling my photos I get upset because the photo could have been that much better if I had played chicken with my client had I stuck with what I really wanted out of her.  I learned that I needed to be a more honest communicator.  

In this session, I was able to direct J exactly like I wanted because I was doing this for me.  Yet, why wasn't I doing this for my clients?  That's what they wanted right?  The biggest compliment I get from people is how I direct.  If I am to be honest with myself, I can be better with telling people what I want from them.  I will.  With and without the camera in front of my eyes.

Sexy Photos Dallas, Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Dallas, Outdoor Sexy Photos Dallas, Sexy Loft Photos Dallas, Female Boudoir Photographer

I also learned that you truly need to "fuck-their-thoughts".  Who is their?  Also, why are we fucking their thoughts?  'Their' are all the dumbass voices in your head who promote self-doubt.  Those thoughts that drive fear and promote stagnation.  Those that want you to stick to the status quo.  Those stupid fucking thoughts that stop you from achieving greatness because you feel uncomfortable.  While we are at it, fuck your comfort.  Yes, in the event you are wondering, fuck is my favorite cuss word. 

I felt like a bird while shooting J.  I was without restraints.  Flying free. Unbound to any type of expectation to anyone.  This was my world were I finally allowed myself to create freely. I was living by my own rules. Fuck the hair. Fuck the makeup. All I wanted to do was create without these limits, fears, and self-doubt I conjured up for myself.  Gawd, did it feel amazing. To be in a single moment of complete and utter mental freedom is the most satisfying state of mind you will ever achieve.

That's what creates leaders, artist, and innovators, right? The ability to dream outside the limits. To do what people think are crazy?  To do what people wish they had the audacity to do. Do what scares you. Do what makes you grow.  

I will be working with J again so please expect to see her more on this blog.  When you see Jay it will be an extension of me expressing a piece of who I am.  It will be a part of me dying to escape this self-imposed prison I built.  

I appreciate J because she trusts me.  I trust her.  She has given me full permission to work with her with no limits.  I can't wait to create more art with her and share my musing with you after my sessions with this beautiful soul.  

I know everyone is going to ask so... EVERY single piece that J is rocking was styled by me and can be found at Forever 21.

Surviving Abuse and Loving Life | Dallas Boudoir

Ms S, Wonderland Boudoir, Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Photography-5.jpg

Back in December I held a model call.  I host model calls because I shoot a lot of boudoir but not a lot of women want to show off their beautiful work.  Don't get me wrong.  I get it.  Many women want to keep their intimate sessions private and I totally respect that. While I get super bummed about that I do inherently understand.

Therefore, I decided to host my VERY FIRST model call in Dallas.  Boy was it a freakin' success!  I actually only did it on Facebook and I got a number of cool inquiries coming in.  Since I only had a limited number of women that could participate in the model call it was hard making a final selection.  However, I was able to pick a few ladies for this project and I couldn't have been happier.

One of those ladies was Shalena.  Since then I have fallen head over heels for this beautiful soul.  Shalena was picked for this model call because her reasoning really touched me. In her email for consideration she wrote:

"My reason is because behind every smile there is a deeper story to be told. And I am one of many survivors of mental, and sexual abuse. I've come a long way in my life. People always tell me that I have an amazing smile. But if I had a chance to tell my story, to encourage other girls/women like me, I would. It would be a privilege to be chosen. And to finally have supporters instead of users and abusers who take advantage of my beauty from within."

I have never been mentally abused but I have known people who have and I can tell you that it's very hard.  Even when said abuse stops, it's never really over for that person because they still have to live with the effects of that daily. 

Shalena is a strong woman with a beautiful personality.  She has a smile that can light up a room.  She is fun, friendly, and carries a sense of happiness that is totally infectious.  I couldn't be more happy to have shoot Shalena. 

Another thing that made Shalena stand out was her short hair.  Won't lie.  I have been LIVING to shot a woman with the same haircut and face shape as Shelana.  Short haircuts are so awesome and bold and not many women outside of Amber Rose have the balls to just rock a short cut.  Shalena knocked it out of the damn park! Lets just call Shalena's session a home run!

For the Model Call sessions I wanted to shoot it somewhere very cool so we opted for this awesome Airbnb that randomly populated days before our attended session.  The guy who owned the Airbnb was so incredibly gracious. He also turned out to be a furniture designer so the space looked extra cool.  

I love when I become closer with my clients.  They mean the absolute world to me.  Getting to know people on a deeper level for why they want to do a boudoir session has allowed me to dive deeper inside of myself to deliver the products they need.

A Major Surprise at a Boudoir Session | Dallas Boudoir

Dallas Boudoir, Boudoir Dallas, Dallas Boudoir Photography

When of my favorite things about boudoir are the shocking revelations that come from my clients.  Case in point with Ms. A.  She told me she was actually four months pregnant!

Say what?!  I did not know that when booking a session with her.  In fact, I think she was just now finding out.  LOL. So keep this fact in mind when you see the photos of our four months pregnant client doing a boudoir session.

You would never know this because posing we leveraged posing to her advantage to keep the appearance of the belly down.  I LOVE posing women to get the desired angles needed.  Learning to pose women is important for two reasons. It leans your subject out and allows you to shoot more evocatively.  I mean let's be honest, what sells a photo is the story that it wants to tell.  Storytelling is successful when the viewer can sense and feel the emotion from the still pictures.  Photos can be done to make us feel any array of emotions.  I look to make my photos powerful.

I feel as though there is a lot of power in allowing ourselves to be evocative and emotional and that's what I was doing with Ms. A in her session.
