64 is just a number! {Ventura Boudoir}

Aug 27

Yeah that’s right, 64 is just a number! My all time heroine, Diana Nyad at age 64 swam from Havana, Cuba to the Florida Keys. That’s 110 miles and 50 hours of swimming in a poisonous jellyfish and shark infested ocean! The first words she uttered as she stepped on land was, “your never too old to follow your dreams!” Gives me goose bumps every time I tell the story. I thought this beauty queen had done a shoot in the past but nope this was her one and only. As you can see from the photos we had a lot of fun. I tried out some new poses that turned out real nice. I look forward to photographing more woman in their 50′s and 60′s because I think they have the most fun. Bring it ladies! Don’t be shy, call me 805-448-1435 to book your shoot!




Colorful Woman {Ventura Boudoir}

Aug 13

I don’t seem to remember photographing such a colorful woman. Literally she has an assortment of colored art decorating her skin and she has a colorful personality to match. She was so so much fun to work with and she even gave me a little background on guns. There is no question this gal is a bad ass and wouldn’t you know she serves our country in the ARMY. It totally inspired me to create a military discount for woman serving in the military! All art work by NASH. Purchase his works at the First Fridays art show at the HUD.







Strong and Beautiful {ventura boudoir photo studio}

Aug 1

The last five weeks I have been using a MMA inspired workout video called, TapOut XT. I was not real familiar with the MMA games until I met this beautiful young lady. She gave me a whole new perspective on MMA fighting. For example, I never knew women can fight in the games. It was a whole new concept for me, women training to fight professionally! Awesome! The feeling of physical strength, personally has given me a sense of empowerment on a daily basis. It has inspired me so much that I’m planning to enroll my six year old daughter into an MMA (bully) defense course come late August. There are many things women do to feel beautiful and giving time to build physical strength is one of them. The last photo was inspired by Ronda Rousey (MMA champ) on the cover of ESPN magazine. My model, looks so delicate yet strong and confident in her womanhood. Thank you K for the inspiration! On a side note: she also filled me in that you can take an MMA lessons with your significant other! How hot is that! To practice to kick some ass on your husband!

Ojai Outdoor Boudoir Photo Shoot {Ventura Boudoir}

Jul 1

It’s a good thing I set a limit of time for my boudoir shoots because I would probably never stop shooting. Its normal for me to shoot over the allotted time and this most certainly happens when I’m shooting boudoir in the great outdoors. This gorgeous knockout came to me with one idea in mind: to photograph her with her Jeep. It was time for her to sale her prized procession and she wanted a good-bye photo shoot.

The shoot was all about her Jeep and she wanted it to be the star of the shoot. Naturally I made her the star but used the Jeep as a killer prop amongst the Ojai Valley. Originally, I had the idea of shooting at the beach, I thought the yellow Jeep would look bad ass against a blue ocean but when I met the model I knew a rustic gritty background would suit her better plus her wardrobe worked well too in this environment.

Some vehicles have a way of making you feel free and adventurous, strong and down right SEXY. The mood and feel of the outdoor boudoir shoot covered just this! Contact me to get more info on outdoor or boudoir studio photo shoots.
