I had the chance to do mini photo shoots with baby ducks in Denver, and I jumped at it! Not only did I photograph Ariella and Momo, but I also did some photos of myself too (with assistance from my friend Billee). Thank you to Leila for letting us snuggle your duckies!
Starting in 2016, La Photographie has been offering "Series Specials," a day of glamour and beauty in and around one prop or theme. Earlier this year, I offered "Between the Sheets," a mini-shoot special taking place around a bed. We had 11 ladies participate in this special and with Crystal Brown of Nashville Glamour on makeup, the photos turned out beautifully!
Featuring: Brooke, Bebe, Jeannine, Katherine, Sophie, Foxey, Lavender, Helene, Marie, & Viola. Sophie's hair by AmyRose of Hocus Pocus Beauty Boutique.
Rachel and I know each other through her involvement in the Nashville dance & performance scene. I have photographed her in the past, so I was delighted when she wanted to schedule a new photo shoot with me - bellydance style. She is the proprietress of Holy Rose Divination, a shop featuring ancient relics and oddities from around the world. If you're in Nashville, be sure to check it out!
Oh those Clocktower Clockettes really know how to make me smile! I loved doing this 1980s session with dancer Peggy Tulane. She used some of these images to promote her Ladies of the 80s show at the Clocktower Cabaret in downtown Denver earlier this year! Enjoy her bitchin' photos celebrating all things 80s!
I love working with Violet June! She approached me earlier this year to inquire about doing a pin up photo shoot inspired by the 1959 Barbie doll, and I said yes please! Violet brought the perfect props from the sunglasses to the immaculate bathing suit. While I adore doing photo shoot specials, private sessions are so much fun - and customizable! Contact me to set up your custom photo shoot :)
I have been a longtime admirer of Alfred Cheney Johnston, the NYC photographer who captured the Ziegfeld Follies girls in the 1920s. His work is transcendental and provides a private look inside the decadence of the 20th century's most beguiling decade.
When burlesque superstar Lola Van Ella visited Denver earlier this year, we decided to do an homage to the work of Alfred Cheney Johnston with our photo shoot. I call this style "Midnight Frolic."
Stay tuned for more examples of Midnight Frolic, as I have been offering photo shoot specials in this style in Denver and Nashville. More to come!
I don't get the opportunity to create imagery with men as much as I would like, so when Patrick suggested we do a male boudoir session (aka dudeoir), I jumped at the chance. Patrick is also an aerial artist and athlete, so we did some photographs of him on his apparatus. We experimented with light and shadow and created some stunning bodyscapes, bordering on fine art. I would love to do more work like this! Email me if you have ideas :) firstname.lastname@example.org
Spending a weekend in Albuquerque, creating with fantastic women, is something I hope to do again soon. I had a fabulous time creating with these 6 ladies inside Style Me Pretty Salon. Every client brought such unique looks and ideas - everyone's images have their own unique style.
Want me to come to your city and do a day of glamour photography? Send me an email and let's chat! email@example.com
One of the best things about my job is that I get to travel so much! I loved traveling to Albuquerque last October to work with the beautiful women there. Ave wanted to do her session outside in the beautiful golden light. These photos were taken just a few days before Halloween, so we captured a bit of a spooky vibe.
Now that Colorado is my new home, I absolutely love creating images in my new city of Denver! Bettie wanted beautiful burlesque portraits with the city as her backdrop, and we had a great time frolicking around Colfax, Civic Center Park, and the Denver Art Museum. Passersby were doing double-takes all day with Bettie's gorgeous burlesque costumes. This shoot was so much fun and I can't wait to do more like this!
When my longtime client Amanda contacted me about doing a magical, outdoor beauty portrait session last fall, I jumped at the chance. Amanda wanted her portraits to be different, moody, and reflective. With Katie-Laine Thornton on makeup and AmyRose of Hocus Pocus on hair, this look came together perfectly with the simple and stunning wardrobe pieces Amanda chose. Enjoy!
I absolutely ADORE Fannie Spankings! She is a Denver burlesque performer who is quite the accomplished lady. When Fannie signed up for last year's The Clocktower Series, I was thrilled to photograph this stunning beauty on her home turf!
These images are all in color because I can't imagine any of them in black and white! Fannie's colorful personality shines through and the beautiful Clocktower is a stunning backdrop for her style. If you want to sign up for your own spot in my next Clocktower Series, be sure to sign up soon! There are only 2 spots left ;)
Kitty Crimson is a Denver burlesque dancer who has been gracing stages and slaying audiences for over a decade. This stunning beauty is also a complete sweetheart and was delightful to photograph. We met at the Crawford Hotel last autumn and created inside a gorgeous hotel room before going down for a cocktail at the Cooper Lounge. Union Station provided a unique backdrop for our end-of-the-evening portraits. Feast your eyes on this stunning display of glamour...
Evelyn is a stunning burlesque performer who recently relocated to Nashville from NYC, and I had the pleasure of photographing her there last month. Evelyn is absolutely stunning and was a delight to photograph. The cloudy day provided minimal window light, perfect for the mood we wanted to capture. Enjoy!
Alicia Dawn is a stunning dancer in Nashville and I've been admiring her on-stage and off for a long time! I finally got this babe in front of my lens at the Bombshell Sessions a couple of months ago. I loved her wardrobe choices - a flannel, a t-shirt & panties, and a drop dead gorgeous black lingerie set all made for unique portraits and style. Crystal Brown of Nashville Glamour did the pinup-perfect makeup.
Jean is a ladyfriend whom I've been hoping to photograph for years! This burlesque vixen is feisty, feminine, and downright dangerous. She brought her modern Bettie Page-style into the Bombshell Sessions in Nashville last November. Take a peek at her bad ass boudoir session...
I am lucky enough to have worked with Anna Claire before, for my Bewitched Photo Shoot Special in Nashville last year. I was thrilled when she signed up for another one of my specials: The Bombshell Series in Nashville. With hair by Shana Michelle Taylor and makeup by Crystal Brown of Nashville Glamour, these flapper-inspired images turned out beautifully! I love Anna Claire's style, and the pink feather dress is to-die-for! Our private location provided the perfect backdrop for these retro glamour photographs. Enjoy :)
There are few things I love more than coming together in a unique location and creating art with gorgeous clients. When Magnolia contacted me to do a vintage-inspired photo shoot, I jumped at the chance. With Crystal Brown of Nashville Glamour as the makeup artist, we had a blast playing dress up. I love these photos <3
One of the best things about living in Denver is attending events and shows at the Clocktower Cabaret. For over 10 years, the Clocktower Cabaret has been bringing the finest entertainment to downtown Denver, including burlesque, music, and circus performers. I have done several photo shoots there over the years, but last November I was able to hold my first day-long boudoir special there. The club provided the backdrop for some amazing and decadent images. I photographed 7 beautiful people inside the Clocktower Cabaret and here are some of the highlights. Featuring Violet, Dottie, Kat, Evangeline, Raphael, Fannie, and Autumn! Enjoy!
As part of a new option for shooting with La Photographie in 2016, I introduced the Series Specials. The first Series Special was the Bathtub Series, where each session took place in and around one prop - a clawfoot tub! I offered these sessions in Denver and Nashville, and I was so excited to see what each lady brought to her session - every one was so different! Bubble baths, a glitter bath, a blood bath, colored bath bombs, and even an octopus milk bath! We had so much fun doing these sessions and I'm excited for my next Series Special - Between the Sheets - later this month.
Enjoy the images I created with these bathing beauties! Featuring Violet, Dottie, Ava, Bonnie, Filly, Jeannine, Freya, Jinx, Michelle, Buffy, and Schatzi. On location makeup in Nashville provided by Crystal Brown of Nashville Glamour.
