Bohemian Boudoir Session with Leah Morris – Part 1

It was late Saturday afternoon, with the sun high in the sky, that I packed up a few of my favorite film cameras, a couple handfuls of film, and ran out the door to meet my friend Shannon in her white CRV.

Giddily, we drove a few blocks to my favorite vintage fashion shop, Three Sixty Ecotiqe, in order to pick out some rad fashion accessories for the bohemian boudoir session we were about to shoot.

We were blessed with a black lace hi-low dress, a sheepskin-lined leather vest, a kick-ass pair of high waist jeans, and a number of beautiful body chains.

With our selections in hand we hopped in the car and made our way to an empty white house in an old neighborhood lined with tall flowering trees.

Leah met us there and together the three of us made magic until the sun fell behind the horizon and the light faded to a soft blue-grey.

This was a film only boudoir session and a collaboration between myself and Shannon Rosan. Please take a look at Shannon’s blog to view her version of this shoot. A huge thank you to Three Sixty Ecotique for providing wardrobe and to Leah Morris for being so amazing to work with!
