San Diego Boudoir: The Stunning *M*

Girl!  I had so much fun with you today! You did such a fantastic job! Here is your sneaky peek! 


TGIF! Mai Tai Recipe

My Opa (”grandpa” in dutch) makes THE best mai tais and a few weeks ago I finally remembered to ask him for the recipe.  Delicious! Thought I would share it for a good Friday night treat.  Picture tutorial style!  

(P.S. in my pictures I did a triple batch.)

For 2 (or 4 smaller) serving sizes: 4 oranges, 3 lemons, 2 limes, grenadine for color, sugar (I dont measure but I’d say 1/4th cup), light rum,  dark rum, (pineapple, optional garnish)

Cut citrus and SQUEEZE! I use a 2.99 Target special lemon juice thing. LOL 

Grenadine (just pour a little bit into the fruit juice mixture until it looks grapefruit juice color.)

Add ice to a cup (normally I use real cups but I figured these were cuter for pictures! LOL) Pour light rum about 1/3rd in the cup. Juice almost the rest of the way and then dark rum on top for color. (My husband asked me “how much do I get for being your hand model in these pics?”  My answer:  ”Umm, the pleasure of my company!”)

Add pineapple on the rim and then voila! Beautiful YUMMY friday night beverage! Have a great weekend!

San Diego Boudoir: FAQ


I get a lot of questions about boudoir so I thought I would start doing a post every couple of weeks with a new question and answer.  If anyone has one, feel free to put it in the comment box below or shoot me an email.

One of my more common asked questions is “What percentage of your boudoir clients get hair and makeup?”  I’d say about 60-70%.  I also get a lot of “do you recommend it?” questions. The answer is yes.

 The makeup artist is Kelsey Brown.  She also happens to my sister-in-law so that is pretty cool we get to work together! She’s super fun and down to earth and we have a great time during shoots.  She rocks the natural but sexy look.  She’s also super great with false lashes (as you see in most of the shoots, I highly recommend getting lashes!)  I think getting hair and makeup adds to the whole experience.  It’s a relaxing, fun start to great shoot.  You come in to the studio, chat, have a glass of champagne, get in a robe, get your makeup and hair done……IT’S JUST FUN! Like a spa day (minus the water) and you get an album showcasing YOU as the art and it lasts forever.  Plus you leave feeling like a million bucks!

So make a boudoir appt, add the hair and makeup, pamper yourself, and come and meet us (we wont make these faces at the shoot, we promise. HAHA!)
