Behind Closed Doors with Ms. LaVelle

We present the beautiful Ms. Lavelle. . .This gorgeous super woman has taken School of Seduction by storm with her passion for being a mother and keeping her “Man” satisfied, all while writing an environmentally friendly curriculum for schools, and gaining herself another degree, all at the same time.

Six months after having twins, this diva enrolled in my Sexy Refresher course.  She quickly became my class funny girl, with her quick wit and quirky sayings.  She wanted to use the class as a tool to reinvent the sexy she once possessed.  Boy, she definitely achieved that and much more.  From not wearing makeup or wigs, to rocking the diva look every time I have seen her since.  She is the perfect example of my mission statement.

LaVelle was surely the most interesting to work with to produce this Boudoir shoot! Initially she had no vision of what her photos would look like.  On the day of the shoot, she not only had “vision” she had naughty lingerie to match. With a focus on her “alter ego” and the desires of her significant other she went from sweet to sultry with application of lashes and lipstick.

LaVelle brought her whole mommy crew to take class with her and they all did the photo shoot!  I love mommyhood, for wanting to bring sexy back!  Thank you LaVelle for allowing Marlene (Photog), Shanai, (MUA) and myself (Harley) to transform you in to a sexy Pinup!  We hope he loved each image.

Mrs. Sinnamon Boudoir

Introducing Mrs. Sinnamon. . .

A Love Note from Sinnamon:
What a wonderful experience I had with Harley and the other ladies of the Sexy Wife Refresher course !!!  I’m a military wife separated from my husband while he’s on deployment.  Packing and moving every few months left me feeling like just a worker bee and not anything someone would be interested in.  I wanted to take a class that would help me get my sexy back !!!  The classes not only helped me to embrace who I am (flaws and all) but gave me tips on how I could make my husband feel special too when he returns.   The decision to participate in the Boudoir Shoot was the icing on the cake.  I’ll be able to look back on my pictures and recall all the lessons I learned. Thank you for helping me to get back to my old self !!!

Behind Closed Doors with Harley: Valentine’s 2012

It Started with a Class.

How do I begin to tell you about my adventure on February 4, 2012?  For the sake of titles we will call it the Chocolate & Champagne Boudoir Marathon.(Atlanta, Ga). In case you were wondering how this Marathon works, put it this way we took 1 day, 6 naked (semi-naked) ladies, 1 fabulous room, 1 photographer, 1 makeup artist, and only 1 Harley, and produce what would become one of the most memorable moments of this group of wives and mommies lives.  This entire adventure started with a class at the School of Seduction’s. The  2-day “Wife Refresher Course” in Columbus, Ga is where  I had the pleasure of teaching 5 of the ladies participating in this boudoir shoot.   This group of wives went from for some shy, conservative, or just wanting to reinvent their sexy to their husband’s new super sexy girlfriend.  So, ideally the next step in reinventing their sexy was to get them in front of my favorite boudoir photographer’s–Marlene Lillian— lens.

First, there was the consultation to give the women tipping for preparing for their big day.  Two hours and a full belly later we were ready to build a look for Sexy.  It was time to do what we love most shop! Six ladies and a Harley took the mall by storm playing with thongs, lipstick, garters, infused uncontrollable silliness. I spent 6 hours assisting each lady with their visions for their photographs.  By night fall each lady had their arms filled with enough naughty unmentionables to last them a year in the bedroom.

Day of Shoot

After a week of texting and emails about filled with pre-shoot worries I was able to get 6 women feeling confident enough to make the hour and a half journey to one of Midtown Atlanta’s sexiest hotels.  Cars of to-be Victoria Secret models  flooded the valet. The mommy crew stepped out in jogging pants and t-shirts, with suitcases of wigs, lace nighties, and jewelry in tow.  Some ready, some frightened by the pending adventure that lay ahead.  We kept calm as we met the fabulous Shanai Dominique (makeup/hair) of SD Luxuri and the talented Marlene (photographer).

As the jitter increased the ladies started to assemble outfits with hairstyles, and stilettos.  The first lady was up for makeup, the lovely Alexia a.k.a. Mrs. Sinnamon (her Alter Ego).  As she began prepping, I spent the next 8 hours running from lady to lady fixing outfits, being her ultimate “hype” girl, pouring champagne, all while shouting “take that #%^* off, we here to get naked!”  By 8pm we had successfully gotten 6 of Columbus, Georgia’s finest down to their birthday suits. . .Valentine’s for their husband’s will never be the same.  These women went from wife to lap dancer to nude models.  Mission Complete!

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!

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!


Mua!  Thanks Marlene my wonderful Photographer!  Thanks to Miss Ola, our most fabulous makeup artist!   To the Gate’s House Bed & Breakfast,  there is no venue that carries romance in such a lavish way!  Thank you for having us!
