Very Velvety | Santa Cruz Los Gatos Bay Area Boudoir Photographer

 

When it comes to Valentine’s Day finding what to wear can be a hassle, especially when you’re the type that always thinks outside the box. For the biggest day of love satin and lace are your standard fabrics when choosing something very sexy. These fabrics are both fantastic for go-to sexytime lingerie. But you’re not into just those two choices. You’re more into mixing it up a bit or even going with an entirely different material altogether. VELVET!!!! Yes, Velvet!!

Since velvet is so soft to the touch some ladies like to go for a color that is equally as soft. It makes it that much more irresistible. Lighter shades of pink achieve this effect perfectly.

Burgundy accomplishes this soft sexy perfection despite its deep shade. As a matter of fact, to go deeper is to attain true seduction.

Various shades of blue of course are vivacious and extremely enticing, but one of the most unlikely colors for Valentine’s Day. Despite not being a more commonly used color, it still achieves a soft and regal yet naughty look.

Although purple is a less traditional color for the occasion it is the most regal of all colors. Wear the color of a Queen while captivating your King.

But black is an absolute classic and goes with every color, every occasion and it is most flattering on every beautiful figure. As a little black dress is a must in each woman’s closet, so too should black velvet in every ladies lingerie drawer.

To feel soft always remember that velvet is that perfect touch needed for your special Valentine’s Day.

Tushy Tuesday | Best Boudoir Photographer in the San Jose Bay Area

I’m feeling sassy, hence the blog title. It made me laugh and I figured, why the heck not, I’m feeling like it today! I have been booked pretty solid the past couple weeks and every session has been fabulous! Just this morning we ended with a butt shot and I said “Aaaaaand… you just made Tushy Tuesday!” Client: “YES!!!” Haha!

Sass can be a very good thing and so can confidence. I have seen every gorgeous woman leave my studio the past few weeks with a smile and an air of confidence about them that makes me beyond happy. I actually think I get a bit of a high doing what I do. I get so excited during the session when I capture beautiful poses and expressions. And to show a client and see her smile, it’s awesome. But I’m sure I am sounding like a broken record so let’s get on with it.

Here is yet another beautiful tushy, or tushie, or tushi, however you choose to spell it, it still looks fabulous!

Falling for Navy|San Jose Boudoir Photography

Boudoir Coterie Portrait photographyI love Fall. It’s one of the few things I truly miss about the East Coast, and I get a little nostalgic each year when it rolls around. Thankfully these feelings quickly fade as soon as my hometown gets it’s first snowfall and it’s still sunny and 70 degrees here in San Jose. In the meantime, I’m getting my pumpkin spice lattes early in the morning while it’s still crisp and cool outside and reminiscent of the Fall weather I’m used to. It’s the small things.

Aside from the crisp cool days, and everything pumpkin flavored, I also really love all of the gorgeous Fall colors. I might not get to enjoy the beautiful foliage in California, but there’s always fashion!

The deeply saturated colors are so pretty, classic, and flattering to many skin tones. As a matter-of-fact, when I got married in April, I bypassed all of the typical Spring colors and chose “spiced wine” bridesmaid dresses from J.Crew. This gorgeous, deep reddish-purple color looked fabulous on all of my bridesmaids and I was able to make it more “Spring-like” with bright purple and green accents. As an added bonus, they can all wear their dresses again this Fall too (isn’t that what all brides like to think?).

Anyway, this Fall I’m really loving navy blue. Back when I lived in New York City, like most New Yorkers, black was a staple in my closet. While I still think black is quite chic, I love how much softer navy can be. It pairs great with browns and creams and is very flattering. I’ve been seeing a lot of great navy lingerie online lately, which I think would be perfect for a boudoir photo session. Here are some of my favorites from around the web (including a few really affordable ones from H&M):

I really like the idea of pairing these pieces with a soft cream cardigan or wrap and cozying up with a cup of coffee for a more casual look. Of course, you could also add a hot pair of heels for something a little more vixen-ish too;-)
