City Girl in the Country

My most recent photo shoot was of a lady I’ve known for a couple of years, but haven’t had the pleasure of socializing with yet.  We had fun trying different poses and outfits for her shoot.  My husband’s Harley was a great prop and instead of the typical jeans attire, I thought the contrast of a beautiful woman in an elegant dress would make for a cool pic!

Wandering around my yard on the hunt for photo sites, she suggested our massive rock….

Changing into her cowgirl outfit, our outdoor shed provided a nice backdrop…

Boudoir Photography

Boudoir photography is so much fun!  The creative possibilities are endless.  The first step is ensuring your model is comfortable with you and that you provide a warm environment, which can be difficult during this seemingly endless bitter cold February in Cincinnati!  I recently did a photo shoot with my Model, Christy, and we clicked (no pun intended), which put her at ease.  For this first photo, I had the idea of wrapping her in cellophane.  We weren’t sure at first how the photos would turn out, because I wrapped her a little too tight, but I think it’s cute!

This is Christy’s favorite photo.  Doesn’t she have beautiful hair?

I’ve had a difficult time finding a willing subject for this type of shoot.  Most women feel that they need to lose a few pounds and feel they have to be perfect, and often think they’re too old.  Christy is in her mid-30’s and looks great!

We were both on the same page as far as the over all “look” we were trying to achieve…sexy, fun, and tasteful!

I recently set up an at home photography studio, with used lighting and backdrops and took photos of a special woman named Christy!

I love taking photographs of people and letting them see their special beauty…

She wanted some “corporate” photos and I especially liked this one (even though she thinks it looks like she’s chewing on the pencil)…a sexy executive look!

My husband and I decided to stay in tonight…(it’s too cold) by the warm fire!  He’s preparing a steak dinner…I’m fortunate to have him.  Sending all of you a hug! xoxo

A beautiful woman is the one who never compares herself with others, because what others have doesn’t make her feel insecure…

A beautiful woman uses Her lips for truth, Her voice for kindness, Her ears for compassion, Her hands for charity, Her heart for love, For those who don’t like her she uses prayer…

Beautiful Woman

I had the opportunity yesterday to photograph a beautiful woman.  Her name is Carrie Kondor and she was referred to me by the Yoga instructor that I recently took photos for.  Carrie is starting her own business.  She teaches meditation, yoga, and some type of healing; wherein while the person is lying down, she beats a drum to open their chakras.  She reminds me of a cross between Carly Simon and Seane Corn (whom she admires).

Doesn’t she have a great smile…so full of life!

She arrived with a variety of outfits and colorful scarves…

Titillation in Over The Rhine

Join me for the last of our tour in Over the Rhine, located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I meet people in the oddest places!  This beautiful lady was in line to use the restroom at one of the bars I stopped in.  She really liked the photo when I showed it to her and said she rarely has good ones taken.  She was going to Facebook friend me to use the photo…but I haven’t heard from her yet.  The first photo I took of her she was looking directly at the camera, so I asked her to turn her head slightly….voila!
