A gallery of my work organized by year.
Yesterday I kicked off a week long series of posts from a boudoir shoot with the beautiful Kerstin. We continue today with the first real set from that evening. It’s always a challenge shooting a model’s first shoot, doubly so for one with any level of sensuality attached to it. As you’ll see over the next few days, though, Kerstin really came out of her shell pretty quickly and lost herself in the fun of the shoot.
I give you; Day Two.
(no nudity, but suggestive themes)
My niece Kerstin approached me a while ago to do an extended boudoir shoot as a gift to her partner. After the book I had printed of the photos was given and the gift thoroughly enjoyed by both of them, I was given the all-clear to post a few of the hundred+ photos from 8 different costume changes.
It was, without a doubt, a most incredible evening. In going through and picking out the photos, I realized that just dumping all of them into one blog post wouldn’t do them justice. I’ll be posting a small selection from each set. This is the first of those sets. As always, I welcome your comments.
(no nudity, but suggestive themes ahead)
A vast majority of boudoir and sensual photography is shot with high key, or bright natural lights. I thought, what could you do with low key, soft lighting and a willing model? Here are a few of the images from a couple of hours of experimentation. No nudity, but lingerie is still NSFW in most places, so it’s behind the cut. Enjoy.
There are times when you have to put away the strobes and umbrellas and just let nature light the way. I love the softness of early morning light through the window and the way to caresses a woman’s skin. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
With a camera, a bed, a red dress and my ever lovely wife, Wendi, how could I go wrong on a Wednesday evening?
The beauty of a mother-to-be is not just in the visions of her pregnant body, but are just as visible in the images of the woman herself. I give you a few more photos of the lovely Kerstin. I took these as part of a pregnancy photo shoot of her back in April, but felt they deserved their own showcase separate from the one focusing on her pregnancy.

This theme is a bit unclear on what to do in places. I’m working on that. Click on the headline of the post to see the post, photos and comments. Clicking just on the photo only takes you to the photo, not the rest of the post. I’m working on a fix for that. I’m also in the market for a new theme and would love suggestions for photography oriented themes that integrate seamlessly with NextGen Gallery.
In a previous post, I presented a shot of my wife, Wendi, that we submitted to Molly’s Daily Kiss Sinful Sunday photo blog. As any photographer or model will tell you, when you’re shooting for a couple of hours with multiple costume and set changes, you always come away with at least a few great shots. Here I present to you the ‘Rest of the Story’. Included at the end are a couple of “just for the hell of it” shots. They’re all technically work safe, but I wouldn’t push it with most HR departments. So click on the MORE button and enjoy.
I haven’t participated in one of Molly’s themes in way too long so I asked Wendi (my much prettier half) if she’d pose for it. She was delighted and spent most of the day playing with cloth and clothes and lingerie and all the other fun things that go into a shoot like this. More photos from the shoot soon. This one’s for Sinful Sunday.
