Swimsuit Issue 2014

Wonderland Boudoir x Blitz Weekly Magazine

That feeling of being published in magazines never gets old.  At least for me it doesn’t.  If you have been following me on Facebook and Instagram then you are well aware that in April I was part of a swimsuit issue campaign in Dallas with some of the top photographers in the city.  The shoot was fun and only had two rules… you had to shoot in a public place.  You could not be near any body of water. 

Challenge accepted.

For this challenge I was able to link up with two of Dallas’s most beautiful, Alexis and Eliane.  Both women stunning in their own right. Each has a different length in the modeling.  Elaine JUST graduated high school and was started out in modeling.  Born in Taiwan and coming to American at the age of 12 she loves the city.  She and I shot in Dart’s underground subway area.  As soon as we came down the never ending length of stairs and escalators she instantly lite up, “This reminds me of Taiwan!  I didn’t know Dallas had anything like this!”  I have to say that the underground Cityplace Station is one of Dallas’s best kept secrets.  The Cityplace stop is located in Uptown and is probably the cleanest subway station I have ever been in (and I have been to SanFran and Boston).   We had fun shooting, but it wasn’t long before we were kicked out by security.  However, I have to say the security guy was super chill and wasn’t rude to us.  Thank You Dart.  There needs to be more people like him.  The security guy told me next time I should contact Dart and get permission to shoot at that location. Noted. 

For Alexis she, I, and Jazzy have been trying to link up for a minute now.  Alexis is one of the smartest, most humble, and beautiful Dallas models in the game right now.  If you have the opportunity to work with her, do it.  For Alexis I wanted to do something EPIC.  Something different.  Something Dallas iconic.  Then I thought… how about the Uptown Trolley.   Instead of shooting guerrilla style like I had planned.  I took the advice from the Dart security guy from the week before and called the McKinney Avenue Transit.  Like my father always said, “a closed mouth doesn’t get fed”.  I spoke to an incredibly nice woman who was more than happy to help us out.  She pulled out one of the most beautiful Trolley in their lineup, Rosie.  Rosie was a PERFECT fit for this project.  I love the ‘20’s burgundy interior and old wood grain.  You could tell she was a beauty back in her hay day.  When we arrived on Sunday the nicest conductor helped us out, Joe (it probably helped that Alexis is a certified 10).  I made sure I limited the shoot to 30 minutes and he stayed outside, blocked traffic, and any peepers and creepers… hey it may be Uptown, but it’s still Dallas.  I really want EVERYONE to take the time to like the McKinney Ave Transit Facebook page and if you live in the area take a ride.  It’s free!

Of course only one photo of each girl could show up in the magazine, but I wanted to give you guys more pictures of them on the blog.

Swimsuit Shoot at the M-Line Trolley In Dallas

A Dallas Boudoir Blog

I’m going to start doing all my blogging Tuesday and Thursdays!  I’m highly considering creating vlogs when I get a second camera… but I really don’t know if I can see myself making vlogs.  You know how some people hate the sound of their voices?  Well, I’m one of those people.  However, we will see.

I love Sundays.  Mainly because I use Sundays as the days I do my personal work.  I was commissioned by a local Dallas magazine to be one of the photographers for their June swimsuit issue.  Last week I shot a beautiful model named Elaine and this week I hosted a session with Alexis. 

Alexis and I have been trying to work together for the longest time, but you know… life gets in the way. Well, she saw that I had an ad needing models for this project and she sent a message directly asking if she could be a part of this unique assignment.  So of course I said yes! 

While I can’t show you guys the final photos as of right now I wanted to showcase behind scenes pictures of what happened that day. 

I worked with the infamous Dallas Make-Up Artist Jazzy Baptiste for this project.  I spoke to the operation staff for the M-Line Trolley and they agreed to pull out Rosie for our shoot.  Rosie is a GORGEOUS Victorian style trolley.  The seats are a luscious burgundy backed with beautiful wood.  The trolley is actual runs on full electricity!  Alexis even rang the trolley bell at the end of the shoot.  Joe, who is part of the M-Line family, let us shoot for 30 minutes.  While shooting he was nice enough to monitor traffic.  I want everyone to take the time to LIKE the M-Line Trolley Facebook page.  He highly requested it since he’s the one who runs it!  So please like HERE!

The photos show Jazzy putting the finishing touches on our girl Alexis on location. 

Here are some instagram photos of me hard at work! 

The last photo is probably one of the few sneak peeks I will be giving people before the magazine gets published. 

So I hope you guys like these behind the scenes photos of this swimsuit shoot we did.  My goal was to make it both high fashioned and sexy. 

Happy Thursday!
