    Pin-up & Boudoir Photo Session: Sultry Film Noir

    This lovely lady is a good friend of mine (ever since high school).

    Tanisha came in for a Pin-up & Boudoir Session for a GREAT reason: She's fine, fabulous, sexy, single, and independent.

    The most memorable thing about Tanisha's shoot was that her mom came and acted as the "shoot director."  Mom was giving Tanisha posing and facial expression tips.  She even let Tanisha know when she wasn't being SEXY enough!  I'm almost envious how comfortable they both were.  I could never bring my mom along to my own intimate photo shoot--she would just die! 

    Photo #1: "Eye on You".

    Photo #2: "Not Interested". I love Film Noir style photos.  They're so moody and sexy.  It's like old school Dick Tracy!

    Photo #3: "Sexy Back".  This is one of my favs from the session.

     Photo #4: "Innocent Enough?"

    Be sure to vote for your favorite photo so that Tanisha can receive her free 8x10 print. The winning photo needs only 10 votes! Post your vote by clicking on the "Comments" link below.
