While Wonderland Boudoir is the premier Boudoir Photography studio in Dallas, occasionally we love to travel out of state to capture some boudoir sessions. One of my favorite cities in the world is Los Angeles.
Los Angeles is a great city but I do have a few complaints I'd like to voice. First of all, why is there ALWAYS traffic?! I mean really my G?! Are there THAT many people that live in the city? I guess Drake was right when he said, "You know LA traffic, how the city slow". Perhaps I have been spoiled by living in Texas. The speed limit here goes up to 80 mph on major highways. So you can only imagine how taken aback I was when the max I could get drive the highway was 50.
It drove me absolutely mad.
The other thing that drives me crazy about Los Angeles is the parking. Parking is damn near impossible in that town. On my first night in the Airbnb, I got lucky because there was a free spot right in front of the building I was renting. I was actually cool until my last 24 hours in LA. Where my car got towed and I was fined $167 where I parked. I mean, they only had my rental car for 40 good minutes and I had to pay damn near $300 to get that bad boy out.
Let's not forget that since Los Angeles traffic is so bad it took us 30 minutes to drive five miles to the impound.
First of all, LA needs to hire a civil engineer so they can figure out the parking situations. I mean one night I had to park two blocks away from the building... only to get up at 6 AM to make sure I had enough money in the meter so I wouldn't be towed.
Why am I bringing all this up? Because before Ms. M held our session, I had to bum a ride from her to pick up my towed rental car. Thus wasting two good hours of shooting time. Since I wasted our time that only lead to us not shooting in the desert. Therefore I had to move our boudoir session to Ascot Park.
I hated that we had to waste our golden shooting time to worry about my car issues, but I have to say that the final photos were all worth the hassle.
What I loved most about Ms. M outdoor boudoir session was that magnificent sunset. What's even crazier is that I don't believe that my camera or photos did that sunset any justice.
You know what else I loved about that sunset? It made me feel like my dad was watching over me. I have no idea why, but I honestly felt that sunset from him that day was a way for him to just say hi and that's he's watching me. Don't you love little signs like that from family members that have passed? I know I do.
I couldn't have asked for a better way to conclude our boudoir session with Ms. M. The fashion that we picked out for her session complemented the scenery perfectly. I loved how her wavy curls added a sense of late summer nonchalance. That blue jean jacket with burgundy panties was a simple and classic Americano.
Let's not forget how awesome Ms. M was. First of all, she drove all the way from San Diego to shoot with me in Los Angeles. Then once she got here she totally took me to get my rental car back. Ms. M is another person that I have been trying to hook up with for a minute now. She was actually recommended to me by another boudoir photographer based in the Southern California area.
Ms. M attitude was perfect for the session. She served our military and stayed calm, cool, and collected through our entire session. She was even open to being in panties, a jean jacket, and no bra in the middle of a public park with people walking around. That's what I call committed.
I know I asked a lot from Ms. M that day, but she delivered without an ounce of complaint. For that, I have to be forever grateful for.
Rather if you're in the Los Angeles, Austin, New York, or Dallas area please feel free to reach out to me if you're interested in a boudoir session. I look forward to speaking to and planning the session of your dreams. Contact me using the quick form below!
