I was actually surprised that Jamie Alexis was willing to be photographed in a restroom having fun. I expected that she would tell me it was too gross or stupid. But when Jamie saw how ridiculously pink this particular ladies’ room was, she fell in love.
Jamie is a real girlie girl. She doesn’t like sports, she loves shopping, and she never goes anywhere without looking great. Luckily, that latter one is rather easy for a girl like Jamie.
Issy Mai and I returned back to my suite at the Trump resort after hitting the pool. She was completely comfortable with me at this point and didn’t seem to mind walking around without a stitch of clothing on.
I pointed out the extravagant telephone by the toilet, the embedded flat screen TV in the bathroom mirror, and the gaudy horse-head statue on the desk. All of which made for great potpourri in these images. Issy was a pleasure to work with and meet on this quick trip of mine to Vegas, a beautiful person inside and out.
Harper Scott was one of the first people that I ever hired to photograph. I jumped online and searched for girls that looked cute and open-minded for the type of photos that I wanted to take. I initially thought I’d be able to schedule a shoot for later that week.
However once I started corresponding with Harper, I took a shot in the dark and asked if she’d be interested in coming over that afternoon for an hour or two. To my surprise, she was game and was at my door in no time. I can’t say I knew exactly what I was doing, nor do I even now. I just know what type of photos I like to see and aim for that. Fortunately, Harper Scott is a sharp girl and easy to work with … the perfect beginning to my long and eventful journey behind the camera.
Debbie Vogel is from San Francisco. It is one of the most beautiful cities that I have ever visited. It seems that the beauty has rubbed off on this 19 year old. Her natural body is a sight to behold. She comes out to LA every couple of months for modeling gigs. Her fashionable looks easily land her fashionable modeling jobs. She was staying at her friend’s place in LA, who also photographs Debbie, and apparently he had no idea that she does any underwear modeling.
So it was her wish that we shot quickly in his living room while he was out running errands in the morning. But while we were in the middle of taking these, he unexpectedly arrives and she is embarrassed as all hell. I asked her the reason for keeping it a secret and she says that once a guy knows that you take provocative photos, that style is the only one he will want to take of you. And by that, she proved to me she was not only pretty, but also smart.
Cheyenne claims to have been quite the tennis player when she was in high school. She says she does some jogging to stay fit these days. Some moments she can strike you as being a very shy nerd, but at others you think her a bit of a party girl. She is a tough nut to crack.
Chelsea Dawson moved to LA 2 years ago from New Zealand. I photographed her at her home in Brentwood. She loves animals, especially dogs, and seems to genuinely enjoy making new friends.
Her day job is as a receptionist at a legal firm in Century City. Chelsea has the frame that lends perfectly to fashion/lingerie modeling. Apparently, this was one of her first photo shoots ever and just like her incredible figure, she was a natural.
Bobbi Vidal comes from a Puerto Rican family, but she grew up in Michigan. I believe she told me that she enjoys Wu Tang Clan, but I guess it is possible that I am mistaken. In my head, I wish all girls dug on the Wu. I would feel safe betting that most members of the Clan would dig on Bobbi.
Her looks and personality are straight out of my version of the Garden of Eden. Even though she got a bit timid at times, she stuck to the shoot and made it a point to fulfill her role in camera seduction. Mission accomplished. Returning to earth can be painful after days like this.
I told Bailey Helen that she could select anything that she wanted to wear for this pictorial. She compiled the wackiest get-up possible from her suitcase of clothes. But this is Bailey.
She loves life and knows how to cut loose for the camera. Bailey used her long legs and athletic build to attack the hurdles on her high school track team.
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.
Aubrey comes from the Midwest. Her easy-going attitude and bright smile seem ingrained in her personality. We visited a local college campus here in Santa Monica and saw how deviant we could be.
While shooting the panty shots, some guy saw us from about 100 yards away and stayed hidden behind a barrier to see what peeks he could get. Aubrey just seemed to laugh it off and enjoy the warm weather out.
