Ikea in Burbank is crawling with people on a Sunday. It is especially busy when they are having some sort of Disney promotion just outside of the storefront. However, this did not deter the fantastic Aysha Thoen and I to try and sneak some shots as devout Christians, fresh out of mass, shopped for trendy new furnishings for their domicile.
It was tough, but we were patient and were able to find a few semi-private nooks for Aysha to show off her sensual stockings. I also did finally try the famed Ikea Swedish meatballs on this day. They paled in comparison to the lovely girl I shared them with. So here she is again, back by popular demand, Ms. Aysha Thoen.
Alexis Celeice has some modeling experience. Can you tell? Minutes after arriving at her place, I picked up on the vibe that she was very concerned with her image as a model and would be a bit reserved. I didn’t really care.
She was so gorgeous that I was going to photograph her within her comfort zone to make sure she made it to Zishy. Alexis is from Northern California and was raised around guns, trucks, and a protective father. She is Manifest Destiny.
Noelle Easton may be 18 years old and bursting at the right seams, but she has not outgrown Halloween. Heh, that kinda rhymes. We visited the fine establishment named Halloween City on this warm Friday. Yep, temperatures are still pleasant in Porn Valley.
Noelle immediately attracted attention upon our arrival. A kind gentleman leaving the store offered us to photograph on his Harley Davidson, and even though we were in a pinch for time, we could not resist. Then inside, an employee pestered Noelle for a “sexy photo to make [his] girlfriend jealous”. Noelle indulged him, because she’s sweet like that, and the employee went so far as to lift her up into his arms. The place was crawling with people preparing for the holiday, but we managed to get a few photos of our own. Happy Halloween and do not fret, more Easton and her treats coming soon.
A girl like Luna Castro takes me back to my younger days growing up in El Paso, Texas. The population there consists primarily of Mexican Americans, not surprisingly since El Paso is a border town. I am guessing 7 out of every 10 girls that I knew were brunettes with dark complexions.
I will be real with you, this had a lasting impact on my taste in women. People tend to desire that which is rare. Looking through this site, it is evident that I have an inclination towards girls with lighter skin tones. But there are exceptions to every rule and Luna Castro is simply gorgeous even to my discriminating eye. She is also one of the most confident and experienced models that I have ever been lucky enough to photograph. Viva la raza.
Did you forget about Serina Cardoni? How dare you. Editing down this girl’s photos is such a painful process. I have an astronomically heavy trigger finger when she is in front of me. But hard drives are huge these days, so deal with it. I confess, when Serina proposed this outfit to shoot in, there was some fist-pumping going on in my head.
The girl is stunning and is surprisingly modest. Every compliment I paid her received a softly-spoken ‘thank you’ in return. Hope this natural, laid back beauty brightens your Sunday. Serina, you have humbled me as a photo editor.
Jules Diamond allowed me to photograph her at her place. Some girls are hesitant about that sort of thing, but I tell them that its safer for the girl to invite me to their place then for the girl to enter a complete stranger’s home, right? Plus, who wants to have to pack all sorts of crap into a suitcase and battle the Los Angeles traffic?
Also, potential models often ask if I hire a makeup artist or if I have a photo studio. I swiftly confess that I only photograph girls who do not need professional makeup in order to look appealing. And if I was limited to shooting in the same environment each time, I’d feel like a mouse on an exercise wheel. For better or worse, I’ll stick to winging it.
Bailey Rayne whipped out this revealing piece of lingerie that she had just acquired and asked if I would be up for for the task. Um, yeah, I think I can manage. I apologize to you in advance for the mesh material leaving less to the imagination than usual. Bailey is a music aficionado.
We spoke of Zimmer, Glass, Greenwood, and other composers I enjoy. Her knowledge far surpassed mine, so I just asked questions and held my tongue. Brains, body, and sexuality; Bailey Rayne wins the trifecta.
Back in Houston, Natalie Austin and I visit an outlet mall. This curvy twenty-year-old is brave. The sweater she walked around in offered less than complete coverage. Then, her white tank left little to the imagination.
I wonder if the young men working the kiosks will remember the sight. They certainly could not let the vision pass without some excited commentary. The Pooh and Clifford rides ate our quarters. Would have made for a cute video clip. Total buzzkill. Song in the bonus video is “Talk to Me” by Peaches.
Leah Gotti is a beautiful and powerful young woman. She was on the wrestling team in high school. At the age of 19, she now uses her fearlessness to navigate herself through the adult industry.
You can call her crazy, you can even call her a slut, but unless you are sure that you won’t be insulting Leah, I would not do it to her face, that is unless you are on point with your takedown defense. I see more Leah in your future. Pink Floyd is cool too.
If I was a painter, I would not paint blossoming flowers, nor snow-capped mountains, nor colorful sunsets. All of those are attractive, but people have always been my favorite subjects. And when it comes to beautiful women, forget about it. There is no competition.
Perhaps I am but a slave to my physiology. Thank Hilary Craig for milking her creative gland in this one. Donovan plays in the background of the bonus video.
