I have been itching to shoot a 1970’s themed session for a very long time. If you were to enter my home or studio you may find that I have an affinity for all things vinyl and velvet.
The lovely Miss Flowers was kind enough to grace my studio with all her roller girl glory and made all my dreams come true!
My inspiration for this series was the film Boogie Nights, Studio 54 in its heyday, and this babe’s cotton candy hair. I wanted a grainy old school film look to push the theme of the shoot more towards reality with an emphasis on pink and orange hues.
This is why I chose to be a boudoir photographer:
"I’ve been insecure with my body my entire life. My weight has fluctuated from dangerously thin to overweight and finally now, back to a healthy weight.
Durango Boudoir has helped me regain my confidence. I cannot get over how beautiful these pictures are. Alexi, you are truly an amazing human for helping me on this journey.
Here I am. And I feel fucking beautiful." - Miss H
We all have our insecurities. It's time to take back our confidence. It's time to rise up. It's time to take over the world with body positivity! Thank you, my dear for sharing your story!
Every once in awhile I have the pleasure of photographing a session that merges my favorite genres together. This session with Rachel in the New Mexico desert allowed me to blend my creative, editorial portrait style with my boudoir style. I could not be more happy the result!
Here is just a small fraction of the gorgeous images we produced.
