Wonderland Boudoir Dallas_-24

I love my clients and I love when they allow me to show off their beautiful their photos.  This week I want to showcase Maria.

Wonderland Boudoir, Dallas, Austin

Maria has an attitude that shines brighter than the sun.  I had the pleasure or meeting Maria through Jazzy, one of the main make-up artist I collaborate with.  Jazzy has worked with Maria in the past and knew that her personality and attitude would fall into sync with our vision of this project.

I love shooting in places that people don’t see the potential in.  One must look for beauty everywhere.  In Dallas there is a whole in the wall spot that looks like a falling Spanish community and I had been dying to shoot there.  Right now Dallas is going through a building renaissance. The city is tearing down buildings with character to put up highrises.  I needed to move quickly because I knew it was only certain amount of time before someone would tear down this unique area.

Originally we were only going to have a session outside the building, but when we go there it turns out that someone forgot to lock the gate… we went into the middle of this community and had a party.  It was so beautiful.  This place has probably been long forgotten. Faded turquoise doors, cleared out rooms, and uncompleted projects laced the property.  When we got there all I saw was potential.  The three of use wasted no time getting some amazing photos for this project.

The first look was experimental.  High wasted black panties, a beautiful lacy bra, leather jacket, and spiked heels.  Trust, putting together this outfit was just as fun as shooting it.  I wanted to create an editorial boudoir session.  My aim is to always show that women can be both sexy and strong. Maria was able embrace this ideology and bring it to life in this series.  I couldn’t have imagined a better result.

Next we took out one of my FAVORITE dresses and heels.  I love color in photos  and therefore a graffiti background near the Bishop art District was a great spot.

The last location was probably the funniest spot of all that day.  These photos were taken in the middle of the day on a Sunday afternoon.  For years I have fantasized about shooting a model next to an Ice Cream truck and I was able to get that.  The Ice Cream man was more than happy to oblige to our request.  I mean c’mon.  What man wouldn’t be happy to have a beautiful girl in luxury lingerie standing next to his truck eating a Popsicle?  You as the model, when would you ever have the opportunity to do the same thing?  In this life we have to live it to the most.  Do unconventional things and have fun with it.  This is what we did that Sunday.

I have to thank Maria and Jazzy for such an amazing session that day.  It was such a blast and I can’t wait to work with more ladies in the future who just want to have fun!

Affordable & Beautiful Wedding Dresses

Texas Wedding Dress Simply Bridal

Hey guys!  I’m going to PUNISH this 365 project so I want to apologize now for the late post.  Come next week I will have more time to post on a regular basis.  I will also start bringing back Looks of the Week and Top Links as well.  However, I wanted to share with you all some recent work that I have done for my personal portfolio in conjunction with Simply Bridal.

Please check out Simply Bridal for Affordable Wedding Dresses.


If you guys can remember that earlier in the year I had a contest to pick the overall favorite wedding dress for me to shoot.  That winning Dress was Marianne.  This dress is so beautiful because it has a vintage vibe for the modern woman.  I LOVE the opening in the back of the dress.  It’s sexy and subtle.

Now our model is Celina.  She is only 5’2.  I love to hire models who aren’t the “Typical” catwalk-tall-afraid-to-eat types.  Celina was a fucking blast to shoot and I can’t wait to work with her more.  She knew instinctively the look I was going for in the photos.  I plan to work with her more in the future to help build her portfolio along with mine.


Of course the make-up was done by the one and only Jazzy Baptiste.  I LOVE his work.  Since this summer Jazzy and I have worked together on a number of projects and I just about love all of them.  I wanted to make Jazzy a book of all the work we have done together this year, but my external drive crashed on me so I won’t be able to do that for a while =(.

Happy First Day of Fall


I won’t lie… I DESPISE Fall!  Everything is cold, the living is dying, and my lips get so severely cracked!  *ugh*  Well, nonetheless I hope these photos will bring you some worth.  This is a personal friend of mine who was helping me test out some lighting.  I just love how he looks in all these photos.  Most of these photos would be great for LinkedIn headshoots.  Also, there is nothing wrong with having some cool photos taken of you just for fun.  I think it’s a great idea for all of use to take personal professional photos so generations after us can see what we looked like at their age.  Plus, it’s always great to look back and have a reminder for how beautiful or handsome you have always been… at any age!

I know I haven’t showed off a lot of my recent work and that’s because I have been unbelievably busy in life as of late.  Here is a session that I did about two weeks ago with an old co-worker Patricia.  She wanted to get these done in time for her 36th birthday.  Doesn’t she looks AMAZING?!  LOL!  I think it’s always a great thing to get professional photos of yourself just for the fun of it.

Portrait Photography in Austin


I know! You guys haven’t seen S in awhile. She has been off being a LEGITIMATE rockstar to the SUPREME level! And there is no pun when I saw Supreme! I am so happy and proud to know and love S. She is by far one of my favorite people on the planet.

So when she asked if I would take the time schedule a fun portrait session  with her I, of course, said no.


Of course I said yes! I have known this woman for 20 years come August!

GEEZ I’m old!

But we look so dayum good!

Especially S!

My girl has been through a tone of growing in the last two years and it has made her an even more awesome person. As we all continue to grow we blossom into who we are meant to be and that’s what I wanted to portray in these photos with Shanna.

I also wanted to do a more film style on digital and because she is amazing she let me experiment with this style. I have to say that I really do dig it.
