Behind Closed Doors with Tamara

When the opportunity to do a Boudoir photo shoot arose I was really excited!  I’d never done anything like that in my life, as the day approached I became a little apprehensive, but I couldn’t pass up the chance. The day of the shoot I was still nervous because I didn’t know what to expect.  Once I arrived to the location and had a chance to talk with the photographer and Angel, I began to calm down a little bit.  The makeup artist did an excellent job!  I almost didn’t recognize myself when she was finished.  The photographer was extremely professional and made me feel comfortable during the shoot, her encouraging words helped relax me during poses.  The environment was relaxed and that made the shoot so easy.  I have to say that the photographer, Marlene did an excellent job.  The pictures are great!  I love them!
The photos were for my husband and myself.  The shoot was a week before Valentine’s Day, but the photos were not a Valentine’s Day gift.  They were for my husband, because that I wanted him to see the sexy/glam side of me.  We have children, so that side isn’t allowed to come out often.  I wanted him to know that he is the one the sexy side craves.  I’m glad I had the opportunity to let her out. . .for him.
The photos were for me, because it was “freeing” experience.  I’m a plus size woman, and I normally keep my body covered up.  The photo shoot allowed me to uncover and let the sexy side of me come out.  She loved being out!
I want to thank Angel, Ola, and Marlene for a memorable experience!

Behind Closed Doors with Harley


It seems like this day had been living in my head forever!  I searched and searched for the perfect person to capture me on film.  After almost 10 years, I am grateful to team up with the talented Marlene Hawthrone Thomas!  Believe it or not I was extremely nervous about my big day in front of the lens.  Once I met Marlene and had a complete make over by the lovely, Miss Ola, all my fears washed away!  I was truly able to practice what I preach each day!  Here are the results!
This bed is so beautiful, it truly made me feel luxurious!

I love how the light made this room look elegant and bright!
Sexy is truly a state of mind!  I would do it again, I have so much respect for who I am, and these images truly made me feel confident with my body!
