His Little Black Book

When I was approached by a lovely young lady to do boudoir style photos, I immediately told her I don't do that type of photography--don't have a studio, don't have lighting. And not to mention, I had NEVER taken those types of photos before (not that I'm a prude to photograph a woman barely wearing anything, hey, I even have a black book of my own). Sticking my camera 2 feet from a toddler (or my teens) is one thing, but being able to pull off something like what she wanted is a WHOLE other story. Posing? Lighting? Intimate? Erotic? Ack!

Well, I agreed to do the shoot. She did everything I asked her to do. It was a LOT of work, but holy smokes--

They are hot.
Smokin' hot.

I've told her when she's older, she will be glad she took these pictures. She will be able to look back and say, 'wow, that was me'.

I've been climbing the walls because I have not been able to post these for over 2 months. She's giving this beautiful black book of goodies to her honey tonight (yes, tonight!) for their anniversary. She even delivered it to the manager (my brother, and yes it was wrapped) before they sat down for dinner, so he could bring it out with dessert.


He's probably getting it as I type this post. So, now I have free reign to post a taste, but alas, not all will be here.

The rest, are only for him.

Ok, so are you SURE, SURE, SURE that you should not be doing this full time? I mean, shit, Andrea. These look like ads for Cosmo or something. Sweet jesus!

OK, I've been traveling to visit my girlfriends family for Christmas so I haven't been able to reply before now ... and my beautiful girlfriend is the focus of these pictures. I am a LITTLE biased, but I have to say that these pictures are phenomenal - from my sensual and lovely girlfriend, to Andrea's choice of shots and post processing, to the work and sneaking that was put in by everyone to hide this from me until our anniversary! I was completely surprised and will love my little black book forever.
