This particular blog post will give a brief nutshell version story of what has transpired in the past 6 weeks or so. Interesting things for all of us!
So....here we are in early-mid June. The Covid-19 "CoronaVirus" has had its way with our lives and economy. I know so many have lost careers and jobs and businesses. My heart hurts for them. I'm happy to say that Boudoir á la Mode is doing just fine though it all. Since our studio is in our huge basement, we don't have to pay rent on that. But many have not been so lucky. The effects so far, and those that are yet to come, have devastated many. Prayers for them!
Now, what have WE been up to during all this? By "we", I mean of course, Dawn and Shane. We did our share of self-isolation. We had to search for that rare apocalyptic commodity known as toilet paper. (I found some at Lowes) We did the whole bit. Now, the world-wide Covid fears have settled down a bit, and of course there is that worry of a 2nd wave. We will deal with that if/when it comes.
Due to the whole pandemic, we did not have any photo sessions in the studio during the height of it all. We recently took a 10 day vacay to one of our favorite spots, Myrtle Beach. The resort we stayed at was just re-opening the day we arrived. (planned out of course). We needed our beach time! Dawn and I find our best times of relaxing to always be around the beach, with an ocean view room. Myrtle Beach is our spot. Florida is one of our others we enjoy frequently.
Who's that girl in the photo with the red hair? That would be our new friend Aderial. We connected with her while we were at Myrtle, and she is a local to Myrtle. Dawn has become a rising star as a hair and makeup artist, and what you see here was all Dawn's handiwork. Dawn uses (and sells) Younique brand makeup products, which have very high standards, and are virtually chemical-free. Hopefully we will have an upcoming blog post on that soon. So, Aderial brought us a great canvas...herself. Fun, bold, expressive, and beautiful, we had a great session with Aderial right there in the resort hotel room. We love it when we get to shoot sessions while away from home. Aderial also wanted to have one of our sexy boudoir HD videos shot of herself, so we did. You can see that on our portfolio page. It was a home run! She brought a lot to the table that day. As usual, we made a new friend through it all. Thanks Aderial!
Dawn and I are back home now of course, and settling into our now slightly altered lifestyle, thanks to the Covid thing, which we are all too aware of now. Yes, we are booking sessions! Maybe see you here? Long live boudoir!
