Beauty in the Desert | Southern California Boudoir Photographer

Let's call her...."A". "A" wanted a boudoir session for her husband. Originally, we were thinking that we would do it in our hotel room while we were staying in Las Vegas for WPPI (a huge convention for us photography nerds). However, the room was pretty dark and left something to be desired. My good friend and fellow photographer Chloe Ramirez of Chloe Photography suggested that we head to an outdoor location. We decided to shoot "A's" boudoir session together - both Chloe and I have similar styles and similar visions, so I think both of us were pretty excited to work together. For those of us from Southern California (myself) and Seattle (Chloe), the Las Vegas desert is a magical, unique place to shoot. This was Chloe's first time in Las Vegas and my 2nd time, and neither of us had ever been off the strip. We Googled a location and off the three of us went in my rental car! We felt like lost city girls but as soon as we found the right light and the right location, we both got lost in the session. "A" is not a professional model, in fact, she is the mom of a toddler. I like to think that she FELT beautiful as we were shooting, because her beauty came across so naturally and effortlessly. She is a beautiful woman, inside and out, and Chloe and I had a blast posing and directing her. Chloe is a self proclaimed "music snob" with large, pretty tattoos - she brought an edginess to the session that I would not have been able to do alone. I, on the other hand, like to think of myself as a total romantic who's style is soft and flowing, and when I look at our images together, I can see each of our styles shining through.

Without further ado...



Announcing my next Boudoir Marathon in Sacramento!

The date is set, ladies. Sunday, September 18th in Downtown Sacramento at arguably the coolest, nicest hotel in town. Champagne. Music. A professional makeup artist, and a ton of fun. Have you been thinking about it but aren't quite sure if you're ready to take the plunge?

“I would just say what I have been telling all my friends, DO IT. I have always seen the flaws in my body but after looking at the pictures, I finally saw myself the way I know my husband sees me. And it was good, and I’m hot! Like, really, really hot :) And also Bre, you make everyone so at ease, even people who aren't ready to bare it all like me. And you are honest, if there’s a dimple or a roll situation, you tell it like it is and have us switch positions. We all appreciated that! But seriously I am showing EVERYONE!!!!!! I think I just rambled too much, but the bottom line is your work made me feel good about my curvy bod. And you ROCK.” - Anonymous

Please email me to reserve a session. They usually go fast! A 50% deposit is required to hold your spot. Let's dooooo this! :)

Bride-to-Be | Southern & Northern California Boudoir Photographer

Does she look familiar? :) I was so excited when she booked a boudoir session with me during my most recent boudoir marathon in Sacramento at the Citizen Hotel. Although we both now live in Southern California, she was in the Sacramento area to visit family/friends and to plan some wedding details so it worked out perfectly. I asked her if her fiance knew she was doing these photos and she sheepishly admitted that yes, he did. I laughed because I am terrible at keeping secrets too and I'm in amazement over my clients who can keep their boudoir photos a secret for months and months!

If you love her makeup as much as I do, you must check out the makeup artist's site, Artistry by Adele!

Yeah. She's so gorgeous it hurts.
