When I say “Oh boy!”, I kind of mean it literally. I’m super excited about launching my CL Dudes, “dudeoir” photography. Last year, after starting up my Cheeky Lamb boudoir photography for gals and couples, I got a surprising amount of interest from fellas who wanted those types of shoots. Cool. I don’t think guys are typically associated with boudoir photography, but the way I like to gear photos for both men and women leans way more toward artistic portraits than the standard sexy-bedroom-type fare. Here’s the broken-record part of my post. I think if an image reveals something emotionally-based within a person, that is what’s sensual and provocative. And now I’m off my soap box. Wheee!
Rueben was nice enough to be the first-timer with these shoots. Like I do with the gals and couples, we met to talk about some really specific ideas and moods we wanted to capture. The shoot was a total blast, and he’s waaaaay easy to photograph. Seriously, knock it off with all the handsome! I wasn’t sure if I’d know what the heck to do when it came to shooting dudes instead of ladies, so it helped to be working with someone patient, fun, photogenic…..and who wanted to take a break during shooting to chat, drink whiskey, and eat kettle chips. Nice.
Now, I don’t like to play favorites with photos, but I have to explain why I particularly enjoy this first one. It was at the beginning of the shoot, and I had just explained that I’m extremely clumsy, and will probably trip and/or break things. Before I finished saying it, I fell backwards into an ironing board. Somehow, I managed to snap this pic of Rueben laughing at me. So, I love this one because I know it’s him snickering at what a dork I am.
Yo, Roo…..you sir are very VERY. Thanks for being such a freakin’ rock star. I hope y’all enjoy the pics!
