Shoots | And Now For Something Completely Different…

For those who know my photography, this shoot is something out of the ordinary for me… girls in bikinis.

I would like to thank Ireland Reid, owner of Rich Bitch Bikinis. She not only kindly sponsored the shoot with fantastic bikinis from her company, but she also modeled. Beautiful model Sasha contributed her talents to the shoot as well. Additional thanks go to MUA Erin Tatum for her always generous contribution of time, talent, and materials. The location was kindly provided courtesy of Linda Christie.


Models – Ireland + Sasha

Studio Shoot | Anna

My friend Anna was in town, so what better way to show her beautiful San Diego than to take her into a windowless studio for a shoot? My original theme for her was sexy French maid. Being a fiercely independent Italian, Anna had her own ideas and took the shoot in a different direction. Somehow she channeled her “inner maid” and ended up standing on top of me. All in all an excellent shoot though!
