Ashley, Part Le Deux

I intended to get these up yesterday, but didn’t manage to do so. Ashley is a new model that came and did a shoot with me the day before, and I did get shots from the first part of that shoot up on the blog yesterday. We started out mostly just doing some fun and interesting art poses, and then we moved on to stuff with more of a boudoir feel.




Ashley made the transition smoothly, and we got a lot done. We even did a bit of bridal boudoir. I’m still plowing through the shots to get them processed, but these are a few that caught my eye from the more sexy-oriented half of our shoot.


Ashley Bridal


I tried having her in some white lingerie on the red spread for some contrast, and it worked well, color-wise. But it has less of a bridal feel to me. There’s no real reason bridal stuff has to be white on white, but maybe tradition is on to something on this score. I’ll have to chew on that a bit.


Implications of Fun


We tried a mess of different stuff, and had a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to get her back in the studio. I’ve got some ideas for that already, so stay tuned for more Ashley in the new year.



To repeat the disclaimer, this is a project about re-discovery. It’s about remembering who I am, what I’m about, what I love and what I do not. Fair warning, this project will be posted here rather than at my SFW site because there will be nudity from time to time. Some of it will be of me, some not, some artistic and pretty to look at, some just raw.

I don’t intend to think of something every day and then shoot it, though I may do that sometimes, too. But sometimes I will just shoot, and then find something about myself in the frames and post about that thing, whatever it is.

All my #365SelfDiscovery posts will be filed here.
