Blogger Bombshell Series: Lacey as Carrie Bradshaw {Washington DC Fashion Photographer}

I am SO excited to share the next Blogger Bombshell with you!

Blogger Bombshell is a collaboration series with my incredibly talented stylist Ana of Make-up by Ana B, myself and fashion bloggers!

The lovely miss Lacey of A Lacey Perspective (adorable DC fashion blog) was our muse for this one.  With her short blond cut, fabulous fashion and spunky smile, she was a perfect Carrie.

Just in time for Valentine’s day… {Washington DC Boudoir Photographer}

Did you see Miss L‘s shoot we shared yesterday?  Did you think for a minute about giving it a try?  If you quickly talked yourself out of it because of worries about how you might look in front of the camera, definitely read Miss L’s perspective on Insecurities.

If you’re interest is piqued but you’re not ready to jump into a full, hour-long boudoir session, then next week’s Petite Sessions (JUST in time for Valentine’s Day) are perfect for you!

Here are the packages!

Does not everything depend on our interpretation of the silence around us?  

- Lawrence Durrell

Every once in a while I get to photograph someone who inspires me and pushes me out of my comfort zone…Miss C was absolutely that for me.  We photographed in her stunning DC condo which was a fun change from my usual shoots in the Old Town studio.

She herself is an artist and poet with a passion for empowering women.  Here are a just a few of my favorites from our shoot.  (as you read you will see poetry that has been curated by Miss C herself especially for these photographs).  Isn’t she amazing?

Lady, i will touch you with my mind. 
Touch you and touch and touch 
until you give 
me suddenly a smile, shyly obscene

He was now in that state of fire that she loved.  She wanted to be burnt.

Love is an attempt to penetrate another being, but it can only be realized if the surrender is mutual.

Cassandra M-94

every mouth you’ve ever kissed
was just practice
all the bodies you’ve ever undressed
and ploughed in to
were preparing you for me.
i don’t mind tasting them in the 
memory of your mouth
they were a long hall way
a door half open
a single suit case still on the conveyor belt
was it a long journey?
did it take you long to find me?
you’re here now,
welcome home.
- Warsan Shire
