Reanna is a lovely model who I worked with several times in 2019 and 2020. But except for a commercial job last year I hadn’t seen her much since the pandemic. So I was delighted when she dropped me a note wanting to do a Valentine’s Day shoot.
She has an awesome “girl next door” look and most of the work I’ve done with her is lifestyle and portraiture. But she’s been working out hard reshaping her body at the gym and was feeling comfortable enough to do a somewhat sexier shoot. She totally killed it. She has a great range of expression, beautiful eyes, and a great smile. I’m very pleased with the shoot. The images are super sexy, but at the same time beautiful and tasteful.
I would say that about 80% or more of my boudoir shoots involve some nudity or implied nudity. Once the initial jitters wear off and you see how good the images look, you start to feel a lot more comfortable in front of the camera. Implied nudity, like in these photos, is often much sexier than full nudes as it leaves lots to the imagination.
By the way, I never post images without consent. Most customers are usually happy to give me permission to post some or all of their set.
Fascinating fun fact: Because of food sensitivities, Reanna couldn’t actually eat the chocolates. So she had to suffer looking at them and smelling them through the shoot. So cruel!
