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!

Come Down the Rabbit Hole with Us

 

Hi! I have been fast at work with sessions, shoots, editing, and magazine shoots!  Did I mention I have a full time 9-5 job in a corporate setting?  LOL.

Recently I worked with an amazing model named Maria for her modeling portfolio.  Maria was BEYOND amazing!  Even though I’m not done with editing I wanted to show you guys a quick video I put together.  Now I am NOT a videographer… and perhaps at my next shoot I will have one, but I did want to create a small promo video of Maria.

I LOVE shooting boudoir sessions.  They fun, sexy, and liberating.  If you even THINKING about doing a session just go ahead and do one!  If you’re in the Dallas area please contact me for pricing and availability!

Wow! I cannot find ANY of my past OOTD photos that I took! Geez! I guess I’m going to have to wear all those outfits again soon! Well, since I can’t find any OOTD then I’m going to post some recent work from Wonderland Boudoir.
Wonderland Boudoir is new my boudoir website. I want to not only take great photos of you, but give women an experience. We cannot define our beauty or our sexuality by what society tells us. It is time that we women take that back and own our beauty an individual sexiness. We are rulers, we are all artist (we create children), and we are to be revered. Each of us is uniquely beautiful, but I feel like so many women don’t see this fact inside themselves and I feel as though it should be highlighted. Boudoir is a beautiful side of photography that lets me work one on one with women in an intimate setting so I can show them how beautiful they truly are. Not only on the outside, but the inside too.
All women are beautiful. It’s time for time you to step into the Wonderland.

April Fools!

30 Rock gif Lemon Good Ideas that go wrong

You like how I did that right?  It’s so funny.  So I did write that post with the full intention of starting back in April, but then I thought about it and knew that I could not start in April with all the travel and personal and work relate projects that I have/had going on.  I did want to start in May.  Problem is that I already had that piece scheduled to post on April 01 and I totally forgot to take it down.  Next thing I know I have people liking the post.

Boudoir  Divas San Diego Retreat

Here’s the thing… I have been mad busy working on my photography business.  If you guys aren’t following me on Facebook or Instagram then you aren’t aware that I went to San Diego, California for a week.  I went to San Diego for a boudoir retreat the second week in April.  Little did I know that this retreat was going to not only help me grow as a business, but on a spiritual level too.  However, I will write more about that on my new site.

 

New Site?!

 Yes!

 

Now don’t worry I’m not giving up this blog, but I do have a Boudoir centric blog now!  Actually that brings me to my next point…

 I STARTED A NEW BOUDOIR BUSINESS!

 

Yes!

Wonderland Boudoir of Dallas Facebook

 This is why the blog was placed on such a backburner for the last quarter.  I have been working on project after project getting this boudoir side of my business ready.  Come this weekend I will write a more in-depth article of what I have been doing and some plans that have been made in pencil.  However, I have had photo shoot after photo shoot to create promos and advertising.  Then before going to San Diego I wanted to update my whole portfolio because I didn’t have any legit boudoir work.  So I had to work with models, and MUA, and Hairstylist, and coordinate a location, and times.  ON TOP OF having a full time job.  On top of managing my personal relationships.  If you think this blog was placed on the backburner you should see the list of people that I owe IOU’s too.  However, my friend are very supportive and understand.

 Quite honestly I am at my tipping point though

 To elaborate.  I am doing everything from the ground up.  Growing this business from a seed and currently I’m anticipating watching it sprout.  However, in order for this tree to produce fruit I have to water it, watch it, take care of it, and do everything I can do it make sure it’s healthy.

With that being said I just don’t simply have enough time to hang out.  I don’t have downtime because I have a goal.  My goal is to be fully self employed by June 2015.  In order to do that I have to place me and my needs first.

With that being said I have to start telling people no.  “No, I can’t do any free photoshoots for you.  No.  I can’t do any additional updates.  No.  I just don’t have time to go drink at a bar.”

Telling the truth does not make you a bitch

Like many people, it’s really hard to tell my friends no.  Especially when they do so much for me.  Funny thing is… it’s really not the friends that have been helping me out (doing footwork) for my business.  It’s the friends that see my work on Facebook or my blog and send me messages that state if I can hook them up with certain types of photos.  So my friends who have helped me get this far either physically, mental support (listening to my rant for hours on end), or by referrals yes, I will hook them up.  At the same time, those are the SAME friends who still offer to pay me for my services.  Funny how that works, right?

Preach

I say all that to say that this whole project is a learning experience for me.  You can’t make money by giving away too much of your product.

For the month of May I will be creating and building new boudoir sets, buying and creating  furniture pieces, and hiring models and MUA for the shoots with pieces.  So with this I have another announcement.

 I will be creating more YouTube videos!  YEAH!

 Hell Yeah Gif

For most of you who have followed me for a while you know I started off in YouTubeLand and blogging just came second nature… then I just started blogging.  However, I need to really marketing myself and what I do so YouTube videos it is.  To be quite honest I don’t see these videos as being the best, because I will be placing most my money into the business and not the software, but at the turn of the year I will be focusing on creating better content.  Right now I just need to get back into the habit of sitting down and creating videos.  The videos will be more vlogging style at first and you guys will get to see more of my personality and my activities to get things done.

 Another announcement!  I have a studio!  Yes,  I do!

 Studio FourFourFive Dallas Studio 445

This is why you need to follow me on Instagram because you would have already known this!

 

Okay.  I don’t want to make this blog too long so I will stop right here.

 

However, I do want to tell you guys some other goals for this month:

  •  Lose 5 lbs,
  • Blog Mon, Wed, Fri on UrbanJungleFashion
  • Blog Tues, Thurs on Wonderland
  • Have my sets built and on the new site by May 25th.
  • Get into at least three wedding shows for the rest of year.
  • Start advertising the sets June 01st.

 

So there will be a lot of content for May that I will be excited to share and I have decided on what my new personal style should be so more about that later!  Yes, I know it’s Thursday so consider this a bonus post.  I will have a continuation post tomorrow on the blog to further explain what’s going on with my fashion sense!

Hey guys!

 

I am back!  Well, I plan on doing the 365 project as of today, April 01st.  I debated on when I was going to start doing it because on Saturday I will be flying out to Cali for the week.  However, I do have enough OOTD (outfit of the days) for the beginning of the month.  Right now, since I’m in the middle of fashion rediscovery for myself I figure this would force me to do other things… like make sure I dress cute.

 

Believe it or not I have been so incredibly lazy with what I wear.  To the point where it’s teetering on the IDGAF Level 5 realm.  Yeah… it has come to the point where I find a clean pair of pants and a shirt that may or may not match and then run out of the house.  Even when I shoot it’s all about the Adidas work performance gear.  It’s hard to get excited about clothes because I have nothing to wear.

 

I am excited about Cali because that may allow me to get a breathe of new air.  I want to see what the style is out there and  gather inspiration.  Also, I’m hoping to hit up some boutiques there that I couldn’t necessarily find in Dallas and just change the style game up.  In Cali I will be hitting up two cities and I may or may not have some vlogs while I’m out.

 

Since 2014 will be dedicated to more travelling I think I may do vlogs while I travel.  I’m deciding if I should do every day… but I think I may be too busy for everyday material so I’m leaning towards a compilation of the week.

 

Nonetheless, I’m super excited to hit the West Coast up because the last time I was there was about four or five years ago.  It’s a been long time coming.

 

Another exciting thing!

 

I HAVE A STUDIO!

 

Yes!  My studio is based out in the Bishop Arts District in Dallas.  Once I have competed the website I will share with you guys.  I have taken some amazing pictures so far.  Case in point this one below of my Sorority Sister!

 

I have good looking sisters, don’t I?

 

J

 

You know what else is new?!

 

I will now be concentrating on Boudoir and Portrait photography!  Yes!  While kids and weddings are cool and everything I just get more love and better photos from Boudoir and Portrait work.  I love contacting with people one on one to bring out the best for the photos.  In fact I have a new website and it’s called Wonderland Boudoir!

 

Yeah, that name is ah-mazing, isn’t it?

Below are some samples of recent work?

 

I really love the fact that I can actually see myself getting better.  It’s great not only know, but see progression in my work.  While I love my full body of work I will not take away the fact that I love it.  Even when I see past work I now see things  I could have done differently… but it’s great because I know how I could be better.  I really love that.

 

I really do that love that.

 

The NEWEST thing?

 

I have a remote now for my camera which will allow me to take more OOTD pictures!

 

That was another thing that stopped me.  The amount of time that it took to take these photos.  It wasn’t really the time, but I live in Downtown Dallas and there are always people walking around and want to stop and stare at what you are doing.  So I’m hoping my little device will allow me to shoot my pictures faster in one take and also allow for better pictures.

 

Wow?  Did I seriously just type all that?

 

Thank all of you for really hanging in there with me and this blog. Especially the last week were I was just super wordy in all my entries.  I have to give a shout out to S because the other week she really encouraged me to write the Kim Kardashian and Yeezy piece.  She also reminded me that I needed to scribe the “Too Old for Forever 21, but Too Young for Ann Taylor” piece.  After I finished those pieces it made me remember how much I just love writing.  That’s why I loved the blog. It is an creative outlet for me.

 

Well, there you have it people.  My first entry for the 365 project.  Which I will not only accomplish, but demolish.  Thank you all again for sticking with me… and I really can’t wait to jumpstart this.  If you aren’t already following me on YouTube  check me out at UrbanJungleFashion.  However, it’s not overly necessary as I will be posting all those videos on my blog as well.

 

In the comment below please let me know how everything is going on with you!

DIY Lace Rabbit

This coming weekend I have a huge boudoir project.  I will be shooting five girls in an Alice and Wonderland inspired session.  I have five characters that I am prepping for and one of those characters is the White Rabbit.

The White Rabbit is a favorite to everyone.  However, I am having an issue with the ears.  I wanted to buy some fancy lace one’s from Etsy, but those bad boys are running between $45-$75.  Of course I’m like, “No Ma’am!”

What does one do?

Go to YouTube of course.

LOL!

Here we have Klaire showing us in a quick four minute video on how to a lace rabbit headband.

I’m sure I can pick up all these from Hobby Lobby or Micheal’s for less than the cost of shipping these bad boys.

I will create a follow up post to show you guys how I did!

 

Happy Sunday Funday!
