Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!! I have a special treat for you today- meet Cora. She runs The Lingerie Addict, one of my personal favorite lingerie blogs because of it’s inclusivity of all sizes, extensive archives and thorough reviews. Cora is pushing this industry in ways it’s never been pushed and people are loving it – including me. I thought our shoot would be appropriate to share today because of my immense love for this woman and the work she is doing. I am so honored to have had the chance to photograph her. Here’s to hoping for future collaborations with this exceptional woman!

All my love,
Dana Kae

Another newbie!! When I first met this beauty she was walking in Bellefleur’s annual lingerie fashion show, “The Enchantment Hotel”, and I was shooting behind the scenes.  She was super camera shy, in fact, early in the evening she mentioned to me that she didn’t want her photo taken. I did it anyway (because I’m a bit of a rebel) and she fell in love with the pics, which quickly led to planning a full fledged boudoir shoot. Allison went full force into the planning and found her dream (top secret) location. It spoke to her moody artsy side and provided an indoor pool for us to use AND she got it for free. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to find something unique and perfect for you, all you need are connections and I absolutely guarantee you have them if you look hard enough.

I stumbled across an amazing article yesterday, “7 Tips for Taking Your First Ever Boudoir Photos” written by The Militant Baker <- AMAZING. I really feel like Allison hit all of these points right on the head and it totally shows in her shoot. It is such a gift to watch women open up to this experience. I think we definitely have a convert – just look at her!

“Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it it’s freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is creative life. It is made up of divine paradox. To create one must be willing to be stone stupid, to sit upon a throne on top of a jackass and spill rubies from one’s mouth. Then the river will flow, then we can stand in the stream of it raining down.”

What. A. Year. Triumphs, tribulations. I feel a renewed sense of confidence and strength and I couldn’t be more thankful to be bringing that into 2015. I am so grateful for ALL the wonderful souls that have reached out to me this year. YOU are what makes this work and I wouldn’t be where I am without your loving and amazing support. Here are some of my favorite images from this year (that I can show) and there are even a few teasers of shoots that have yet to be posted!!

Enjoy and happy New Year friends!

All my love,
Dana Kae
