My favourite part of being a boudoir photographer is showing people their photos. The gasps, the shocked "Is that really me?!", the excitement, the relief, the tears...

By now you know my basic philosophy- if it's fun with your clothes ON, wouldn't it be even more fun with your clothes OFF? So when Priyaa Ravi of Herbal Henna Arts approached me with the idea doing a nude henna body art shoot, I...

Stephanie is fun and vibrant and sensual and she did a shoot a few months ago that I am gonna blog the SHIT out of. But today I want to share her fabulous wisdom, rather than her fabulous...
