    We're Bringin' Curvy Back!

    I love Katy's curves! She's fabulously voluptuous!! And, she was a charm to work with. She brought great ideas, and a suitcase packed full with inspiring wardrobe pieces....and shoes, shoes, shoes. She also had a special knack for posing her body and nailing the perfect facial expressions. I think her background in theater can be thanked for that. :)

    What I love about Katy is that she came to the session with a CONFIDENCE that exuded into her images, making them even more gorgeous. So for advice: when you come in for your session, come in with confidence and self-esteem, knowing that you are a beautiful woman and that these photos will only add to your existing beauty.

    Image Provocateur can be thanked for the fab hair and makeup!

    This is one of my favorites from the session. Ah, isn't that retro Victoria Secret Angel just darling? By the way, this photo features one of our cute ruffle panties that's included in most of our packages (variety of colors available).

    This was a fun set I wanted to try out...and it worked perfectly with her robe!

    Could fatigue be even more intriguing?

    I like how this image is reminiscent of a vintage glamour portrait. She looks like a Hollywood starlet.
