This chick totally rocked her session!
When a woman comes to me for a boudoir shoot, inevitably she will tell me, “I am so awkward! I don’t know how to pose!” to which I respond, “It is my job to direct you, it is your job to show up!“
Most women have no idea what they are doing with posing and I expect that. I shoot boudoir for a living, but put me in front of the camera and I look like turtle on its back. No kidding. I always say weird things like “take a deep breath” or “rotate your shoulders” which are things that the average client wouldn’t do. In fact, unless you are a model, odds are you have no idea what the point of all that is. As I said, I expect that! This is why I am the photographer and you aren’t! Just trust me…
K, like most of my clients, will attest to the fact that I have a slight fascination with hair. I love how it captures light and shadows. Nothing gets me more excited that windy hair blown all over. It is so emotional and speaks to my soul on a deeper level. Emotion is always what I am after, whether it is capturing sensuality, love, lust, etc. it is always with the goal of visual poetry. Hair blown all over offers that visual poetry to me.
With K though, I barely had to direct her, she was a totally natural! K is a pole dancing, world travelling, cosplaying babe! She puts the “hot” in “nerd” … wait, does that work? She has spent countless hours watching America’s Next Top Model and as such, knows exactly what I mean when I say, “tootch your bootie” or gimme some “smize”. I love it when it all comes together.
