Portrait of Shan

I’ve been a bit busy here in DC, what with a couple of shoots, all the editing involved, and trying to find time to visit with old friends I haven’t seen in awhile. This shot is from one of several shoots I did on Monday.

Shan was a wonderful client, and I’ve somehow managed to whittle down my favorites to about half a dozen (…for now, it’s hard to stick to just a few, sometimes!), and she’s given me permission to share those. This is the first of them, and definitely my favorite portrait of her shoot.

Shan was a bit nervous about doing a boudoir shoot, but a few days ahead made a special trip to Nordstrom to buy herself some pretty lingerie. She made excellent choices, including the choice to shop there. Buying pretty lingerie and making a powerful political statement against the current regime at the same time is a win-win, and we’ll be showing off the rest of her statement in the days to come.

I guess that makes it a win-win-win.

Do stay tuned.
