My name is Michael and I am your boudoir photographer.
I am a husband, a father and all around goof-ball, which, believe it or not, works perfectly in a setting that could make you feel vulnerable and nervous. And it's a proven fact (by me!) that if you are having fun during your shoot, it will show in the images, no matter if you are smiling or giving me your sexy face (just no duck face please!!!).
Doing a boudoir shoot with me gives you the freedom to feel empowered, self-confident, beautiful, sexy and HOT!!! Yep, I said HOT, so make sure you have some fun plans to go out with your girlfriends after your shoot because you aren't going to want to go home and flop on the couch!
One of the most important things I want you to know is that when we are shooting in my studio or on-location it's a judgement free zone. I am there to capture your beauty, your personality and everything that is uniquely you no matter what age, shape, size or race you are. My staff and I will not judge you in anyway, we are here to give you an experience of a lifetime. It's a time for you to embrace who you are and know that no one is perfect, so do not feel like you have to be in order to do a boudoir shoot.
I am expecting you to be nervous when you first arrive to your shoot. It's perfectly normal and trust me when I say it will go away. I will help you every step of the way from choosing your outfits to posing (you might actually get to see me in the pose I am asking you to do. Luckily it hasn't been caught on film...or has it?) and everything in between. So no need to worry about anything that day. You are there to have one of the most amazing times of your life!!
A little more about me...I am originally from St. Louis, MO, by trade I am a Theatrical Lighting Designer, I love to cook (almost auditioned to be on The Next Food Network Star), love sushi, have two cats and drive a Prius (averaging 51 mpg Oh Yeah!)
And to prove that I am not just some Joe-Shmoe from off the streets that just bought a camera, I have been shooting for over ten years now and my work has been seen nationally and internationally in such publications as Playboy South Africa, Playboy Mexico.com, Sports Illustrated.com (SI.com), Maxim, FHM and Esquire, among many others.
I truly believe that every woman has a beauty about them and I am here to capture it...for you.
