A Sunday Shout Out! With Some Aloha ;)

Something that I have always loved doing is teaching and helping others learn about photography.

It is something I love so much and I will gladly talk ISO with anybody willing to listen 🙂

Back in Hawaii my husband had duty with somebody interested in photography.

I was so excited to meet her! And I asked her to come along to shoot a boudoir session with me.

I have to say, Shannon Forbes has hands down been the best reflector holder I have ever had to date.

She was so incredibly helpful during Jill’s session. And she soaked up everything I told her like a sponge.

I handed over my camera to her and watched her do her thing. I think most photographers are hands on learners.

We met up later at the Coffee Gallery (which will always be my favorite coffee shop on the planet!) to go over her images and so I could show her how I edit.

 I was very impressed with her work. She had it! She had an amazing eye and you could see that there was more greatness to come from her.

Shannon ended up moving to San Francisco to go to the Art Institute after she left the Navy.

I have to say, I was super jealous. San Fran is another city that holds my heart.

She returned to Hawaii and she had been creating some amazing images.

If I ever return, I know I am going to hit her up.

Shannon’s images are fresh, fun, vibrant, and show off love in it’s purest form.

She is extremely talented and I know I am not alone when I say that I am enjoying watching her grow!

There’s this bizarre notion that I’ve seen fairly often among my clients and it’s this: “LeZandra takes great photos, but I don’t think it will work for ME.” Boudoir is for everyone. Every type, every body, every style, every personality. A huge part of what I do is getting to know YOU and creating your […]

When I say that almost every single client is worried that this process intimidates EVERY. SINGLE. CLIENT. I’m not kidding. The hardest part of being a boudoir photographer is seeing how prevalent low self-esteem is – regardless of size. The best part of being a boudoir photographer is being able to squash those insecurities and […]

Societal pressures to meet a certain “ideal” are bad enough, but when you add criticism from your partner? It takes on a whole other level of intensity. Miss M spent far too much time hearing she wasn’t good enough and finally made the decision to walk away. As a result of all that mental fuckery, […]
