Do you remember a time before digital photography when the pros still shot real film?
I do, because that was when I had my very first boudoir photo session and I’ve been hooked on the experience since then.
It was 1989 and I had just gotten two new special additions, wink-wink, to my super fit physique. I felt sexy in my new body and I loved the way it felt to show it off. My fiancé at the time was pretty excited about the new additions too. I decided that I wanted to capture this feeling with photos; sensual, sexy, playful photos. Back then there wasn’t really a name for this type of photography yet. Now I call it Sensual Photography, aka: Boudoir.
I spent the week before the shoot, prepping, primping, and cutting out the “crap” food”. Which is exactly what you want to do before a photo shoot. When the day came, I was a little nervous but, ready for anything as I stepped into the oldest photo studio in San Francisco, Dore’ Studio.
What I didn’t expect that it would be a Manless studio. Yes! Not a ... man in sight.
Audrey, the owner of Dore’, ran a women’s only studio because she wanted her clients to feel comfortable showing off their naughty sides. Of course, I was surprised to find out there were no men allowed. I came to the shoot resolved to flirt and have fun, no matter who saw me in my frilly panties. Audrey's crew of fun, playful, frisky women made it a lot easier and more fun than I expected. And that was all I needed to get a few really sexy images. Looking back at them now, they are a bit 'Glamour shot-esque'. But, it was 1989! Now we call it retro.
I walked out of that experience with a beautifully bound book of my photos to gift to my man.
NO, he is not my husband and YES I got the book back. ( note to self - think about who you plan to give these photos to.)
Sexual Confidence is some serious magic...
I’m not ashamed to say, it worked some serious magic. Of course, he was excited and I was hooked on the feeling of sexual confidence that a sensual photoshoot seems to ignite.
Over the years, I’ve done a few more boudoir photo shoots. However, you never forget your first. Mine and my discovery of digital cameras inspired me to take the leap into my passion for sensual personal photography.
Now I have my own woman friendly studio in a grand Victorian house in San Jose, CA. I've gathered an amazing crew of engaging, artistic, sensually sensitive professionals who are waiting to primp and prep and pump you up for your own sultry money shot.
