I truly love my job of being a photographer. It is a great feeing to provide a customer something that they will treasure and appreciate forever.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph the beautiful Ramona. She is a gorgeous curvy girl that was in need of some classy boudoir and contemporary glamour photos.
Our makeup artist for this photo shoot was Leilani Tayaba. She helped transform Ramona from the cute girl next door into the smoking hottie you see here.
We started Ramona's shoot with some boudoir photos of her wearing some sexy lingerie. Whenever I do any nude photography or even boudoir photography, it's best to start with less clothing first. The reason why? Because tight fitting clothing like corsets, dresses and tank-tops can leave indentations in your skin and it can take awhile for them to naturally go away.
For all of Ramona's photo I used natural lighting. In both of these boudoir photos Ramona body is lit by the window light and I used a large reflector to bounce the light back into her face. She looks absolutely amazing!
I had Ramona change into a sexy black corset that she brought with her. Instead of photographing her laying on the bed I wanted to show off her gorgeous curvy body so I simply posed her standing up against the wall.
Finally, I had Ramona change into a tight black dress that I have in my shooting wardrobe. Ramona looked great in it, but she laughed and said that the dress looks like something her mother would wear. That could be true, however I know this dress has a very high lace neckline that looks modern and amazing on her.
After her photo shoot Ramona was nice enough to email me and share her experience.
"I was nervous and scared at first. I did not know if the photographer was going to be uptight and strict, and not friendly. I was really happy that Bryan was not like that at all. From the beginning he was very nice and respectful to me and the makeup artist. She did an amazing job also! Once I was ready, we went straight to work. Bryan made me feel very comfortable working with him. He made me laugh a lot. We went through the whole shoot at a good pace, and had fun talking about wardrobe changes. He even gave me pointers and advice throughout the whole session. I was surprised it was over quickly since I was having a great time. All in all I had a great experience and can't wait to do another shoot with him again."
Thank you Ramona for your kind words. You look beautiful and I hope you love your portraits forever!
