Midnight Frolic: 1920s Style Portraits | Nashville Boudoir Photographer

I love doing photo shoots in the style of 1920s portrait master Alfred Cheney Johnston. Johnstson photographed the Ziegfeld Follies in NYC throughout the twenties and his beautiful work lives on in the book Jazz Age Beauties. I decided to offer a day of speakeasy glamour at Delinquent Debutantes in Nashville earlier this year. With hair styling offered by AmyRose Wendell and makeup by Alicia Maynard, our beautiful clients totally nailed the flapper look. Pictured below are Sylvie, Gidget, Jenyfer, Tosha, Buffy, Dress & Vivien, Christy, Mel, Leigh, Vivi, Lara, and Betsey. 

Gogo Incognito as Lady Loki | Nashville Cosplay

Working with epic cosplayer Gogo Incognito is such a pleasure! Last year we did a Deluxe photo shoot where she posed as a Rebel Alliance pinup and as a grown up Little Mermaid (you can see those photos here), and another session as the classic Harley Quinn. This time around, Gogo wanted to do a high glamour boudoir session as one of her signature characters: Lady Loki. With a long green sequin gown and the Loki horns, Gogo pulled out all the stops. 

Pinups with Baby Goats! | Colorado Pinup Photography

You may have seen that I recently did a pinup photo shoot with baby ducks (if not, you should check it out!). Well, I've always dreamed of doing something similar with baby goats, and Barnyard Buddies in Loveland, CO made my dreams come true! My friend and assistant Billee contacted the wonderful people at Barnyard Buddies and they agreed to let us pinup girls invade their farm for a couple of hours. Pictured here is Tatianna, Ariella, and Lady Lavender. Everyone is so happy because the goats were so adorable and sweet. The white one definitely ended up with red lipstick on his white fur ;)

The Clocktower Series Redux! | Denver Burlesque Photographer

You may have noticed, but since I moved to Denver in 2015, the Clocktower Cabaret has quickly become one of my favorite places. I did a Photo Shoot Special there in 2016, and then my second special there earlier this year. The women who signed up for this special were all burlesque dancers, but anyone can come and do a photo shoot with me inside the Clocktower Cabaret! Message me to learn more about how you can come play dress up. 

Pictured here: Champagne Shuga Nova, Laika Fox, Tatianna Tata, Shotza Ouzo, Prudence Devilliere, and Holly Rebelle with her Piano Man.

Kristi's Private Glamour Portrait Session | Nashville Glamour Photographer

La Photographie specializes in custom, private boudoir photography sessions, so when Kristi scheduled her Deluxe session, we were thrilled to learn about her ideas and help create her vision. With hair stylist Shana Michelle Taylor and makeup artist Crystal Brown of Nashville Glamour, Kristi's beautiful vision was brought to life: first as a beautiful flower hippie mama, then as a classic pinup bombshell. Two completely different looks! If you're interested in booking your private boudoir photo shoot in Nashville, Denver, or wherever you live, be sure to contact me to start the conversation!

La Photographie in Atlanta! | Atlanta Boudoir Photography

I love traveling to do photo shoots with amazing women, and I got the chance to visit Atlanta earlier this year to do just that! I was hosted by the gorgeous Metropolitan Studios and I had so much fun creating with the women there. Pictured here are Ursula, Taloollah, Audrey, and Celestine. Want me to come to your city? Send me an email and let's get the conversation started!

AmyRose's Between the Sheets Boudoir Session | Nashville Boudoir Photographer

AmyRose has been doing hair styling for La Photographie for many years at her salon Hocus Pocus Beauty Boutique. This was our second private session together, and I was so excited to do a simple, beautiful "between the sheets" style photo shoot with her just outside of Nashville. Her makeup is by Katie-Laine Thornton. Simplicity & beauty - one of my favorite combinations.

Dita Von Teese in Denver - The Art of the Teese Burlesque Show

Last week, I was thrilled to photograph The Art of the Teese, an incredible burlesque show featuring the legendary glamour girl herself: Dita Von Teese. I have been a fan of Dita since before I started my photography business, and her book "Burlesque and the Art of the Teese" has been an immeasurable influence on my art and my career. What a treat to not only photograph her, but also her amazing cast, including Dirty Martini, Violet Chachki, Ginger Valentine, Zelia Rose, Jett Adore, and Johnny McGovern. From glittering rhinestones to confetti cannons, from high glam costuming to stunning near-nudity, this show really delivered! Take a peek at some of the images I captured of Dita and her cast performing at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO.

Between the Sheets | Nashville Boudoir Photographer

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's Bellydance Portraits | Nashville Glamour Photographer

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!

Peggy's Totally Radical 1980s Photo Shoot | Denver Portrait Photographer

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!

Violet June as a Vintage Barbie! | Denver Pinup Photographer

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 :)

Lola Van Ella as a Ziegfeld Follies Dancer

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!

Patrick's "Dudeoir" Photo Session | Male Boudoir Photography

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 :) stephanie@laphotographieboudoir.com

Albuquerque Glamour Girls!

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! stephanie@laphotographieboudoir.com

Ave's Outdoor Photo Shoot in Albuquerque

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.

Downtown Denver Glamour with Bettie Belladonna | Denver Burlesque Photographer

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!

Casting Spells with Amanda's Outdoor Beauty Session | Nashville Beauty Photographer

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!

Spotlight! Fannie Spankings Inside the Clocktower Cabaret

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 ;)
