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!
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...
I'm so grateful to be settled in here in Colorado. Despite the unpredictable Spring weather, I'm loving it here! One of my more recent shoots was with DeeDee, a showstopping burlesque performer at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret in downtown Denver. With hair and makeup by the talented Kate Hart, and inside the shooting location at the glorious Lannie's, DeeDee channeled her inner boudoir bombshell and created beautiful photographs with me. Here are some of my favorites!
I'm always so flattered when clients travel and shoot with me. Yuni flew in from Dallas with a lady friend and booked a session with me in a private residence. With the help of makeup artist Cassandra Slocum, we created a soft, intimate, and personalized boudoir photography shoot. I love the tones in this session - sexy black, fluffy mauve, satin plum, heather gray, and soft creams. In particular the "between-the-sheets" set at the end is quite lovely. Thank you so much Yuni for doing your boudoir session with me!
