    The Cousin Session (Part 2) **Revised**

    So here's the second part of our Cousin Session: Jennifer.

    Jennifer is so funny because even though she came in to do a Boudoir Session, she is so not into the girly stuff--She's a tomboy at heart. But a very cute tomboy, I must say. She has a fetish with Jordan basketball shoes. She brought a ton of Jordans with her to the session. Hilarious!

    Photo #1: "Bottoms up in Color". I couldn't decide which image to post, so I posted both versions (as you'll see below). It looks so simple, but you'll never guess how hard it was to achieve this pose! Why? Because one's bottom is not easily seen above one's head. It was quite a puzzle trying to figure out how to get those buns way up in the air--and still look cute!


    Photo #2: "Bottoms up in Black & White". See what I mean? Which one is better?

    Photo #3: "Tube Socks and Jersey." I've said it before--tube socks are sexy! Jennifer added a football jersey, and now tube socks are double sexy!


    Photo #4: "A Boyfriend's Dream Come True." Uh-oh mom, close your eyes! Jennifer really wanted Kim to do this shot with her--and it came out so well! The idea for this came from a Jordans ad.


    Jennifer brought in this Tila Tequila photo that she wanted to emulate. I think we pretty much hit the nail on the head...

    Photo #5: "Smooth as a Samurai". I happened to have the sword, and Jennifer followed up with the rest!


    **Added 3/18/09: I just had to add a couple additional photos from Jennifer's shoot because I love them!**

    Photo #6: "Smooches!" How cute it this!?

    Photo #7: "The Ring Check". This photo was actually taken as a test shot. Jennifer was still getting herself prepared and I was checking the lighting. But it came out beautifully! I love it when test shots turn out to be some of the best images from the session. :)

    Be sure to vote for your favorite photo so that Jennifer can receive her free 8x10 print. The winning photo needs only 15 votes! Post your vote by clicking on the "Comments" link below.

    逆援助 said...

    セレブ達は一般の人達とは接する機会もなく、その出会う唯一の場所が「逆援助倶楽部」です。 男性はお金、女性はSEXを要求する場合が多いようです。これは女性に圧倒的な財力があるから成り立つことの出来る関係ではないでしょうか?
