Shopping Guide for our Curvy Clients

So me being a curvy lady myself I have always had a hard time finding clothes, let alone lingerie to fit my full figure and look flattering, so I put in the time search the interwebs, did polls, went shopping and tried on, looked for deals on lingerie. These are some of my findings! Some are local to Richmond, VA and some are online! Once we come up with our additional location in California I will further explore all the beautiful stores out there! (CAN YOU TELL I AM EXCITED?!)

Well I am also a budget shopper, I love the lavish things in life but I know what my wallet likes as well. So I have a couple budget options for you lovely ladies!

$10-$50 Range

$50-$150 Range

$150- Above Range

So, lately I am so excited that Forever 21  and Charlotte Russe have embraced that not everyone is a size zero(nothing wrong with that! Everyone is beautiful at any shape and size! It’s just always been a challenge for plus size women finding cute clothes!) lately and widened their shopping selection to us big gals.

I have found some AMAZING! Bodysuits at both of these places for under $30! I even wore one suit for my own Boudoir Session in the desert!

We used to have an American Apparel Store in Richmond Down in Carytown but it closed last year. Before they closed I hit up their clearance section for Body Suits! I got this cute simple black suit for about $12 ( probably about $30 not on sale!) But it fit wonderfully I am a size 16 and this suit was a large, and it fit! I should have gotten and XL but they were out but it did the job and was super stretchy! You can also look at our local Sex Shops Priscilla McCalls and Taboo.

For online shopping I tried the awesome Adoreme.com I have gotten a few cute bra and panty sets, bathing suits and cute PJ sets for all under $40!

Another one of my favorites with affordable cute lingerie is CHEAP UNDIES! We carry some of their awesome products in studio ALL the time in a variety of sizes, they also carry mens underwear as well!

Yandy.com, Lovehoney.com , fashionnova.com has also been another popular place online.

Well if looking for middle ground on lingerie I have found so many amazing bralette and panty sets at Torrid. I shop there on the regular and love their brand so much!

I have also found cute sets, corsets, and high waisted panties at Lane Bryant, and Ashley Stewart.

Now if you have a little bit more to splurge and want some high quality goodness some awesome shops to check out in Richmond would be Kiss and Makeup off Patterson, Ruth will make sure you are wearing the right size bra and style to fit your ever day needs and you nightly goals. Blythe in short pump has some of the most couture plus size lingerie I’ve seen in Richmond!

Online I have found Love Child Boudoir which has some awesome body cages for all sizes!

Moldie Goldies is amazing for custom Lingerie, she makes every piece herself so there is a wait but it is SOOOO WORTH IT. Her pieces are beautiful, one of kind and stunning! 

Fredericks of Hollywood also has a awesome plus size collection too!

So I hope this guide helps you find some amazing pieces for your session, and there is so much out there now a days and sometimes it just takes someone putting in the work to find it for yah!

We also offer shopping consults! $50 to add it on to your session and we TAKE YOU SHOPPING! You give us a budget and we help you stay within it! So there is that option as well!

Merbae- Lottie Ellington

         Lottie has been one of my clients, colleagues, and friends for a few years now. I always love creating with her and she was one of my first clients to fully embrace me taking on photography full time. We work together once a year and she always has some cool concept for a costume she has created for one of her routines. Lottie has been a prominent fixture in the Richmond Burlesque Community for years, she is talented teacher of the arts along with being one of the coolest and creative performers in this community. As you guys have probably figured out I work a lot within the burlesque community because I used to be a performer myself. Even though I have popped my pasties in to retirement, I give to my fellow  burly girls in other ways.

When Lottie came to me with her Mermaid act I was like this will be awesome, A I love mermaids, and B SHE HAS A TAIL! I have done some awesome mermaid shoots on beaches before and I love them but for Lottie we had to do something eccentric to fit her.  That’s when she told me she made her own underwater ecosystem! The coolest coral reef, I’d ever seen. I wasn’t joking when I said she was creative!

With this look we decided to do a more Pin-up/Burlesque inspired theme. Using seamless paper to create that underwater floor, and a bubble machine for the water effect. It was such a blast creating this shoot I hope you enjoy as much as we did creating it!

And if you have time go check out this Act in person when Lottie performs!

Cross Country Realization

For Winter holiday I decided to take a cross country trip to finish an art project , I had been working on for about 5 years. It was time to turn my life around and finally complete this pet project. I wanted to shoot the last end of it in Joshua Tree California one of my favorite places on earth. I am a desert babe at heart and I love it there so so much. So I packed my dogs, and two of my girlfriends and we started the trip of a lifetime! This adventure was far from perfect but it was one of those trips where you figured out where you going and accept your past. My project, “My Goodbye Letter to You” was a poem I wrote on men and women from ages 20-70. I shot over and again, in many places and the ideas kept changing I kept finding deeper meaning in it. This project started off as a break-up poem about an on-off again abusive relationship I was in, and just recently cut the cord of permanently in April of 2017.

I have stayed in situations far past the expiration date because love is suppose to conquer all right? Well when love is one-sided it doesn’t, and if someone doesn’t love themselves it doesn’t. Feeling alone and in a vulnerable state I decided to reach out to people and ask them about their bad break-ups and how they overcame them. Then I asked them to share their stories, then my words painted on their bodies. It was beautiful so many people poured it all out, showing scars and all. This connected me to these people in a way I never thought I could and brought me to a place where I can finally heal. We did an art show in January after we finished the project and we had over 300 people come out and it was beautiful night. But Just like me I wander from the point, ha-ha. That’s why we went to California, but to bring this full circle we got to enjoy exploring the sites! We went to Salvation Mountain, Salton Sea, Joshua Tree National Park, Los Angeles, and made a crazy night trip to Las Vegas. We explore our realms of doing outdoor desert boudoir and I wanted to share some of our images 🙂 It inspired me so much that I want to open my own studio out there! (more details later this year on that 😉

Nothing happens as we plan it. But you have to make the best of it, don’t let the hard times get you down, learn from them.

So what I have to say to you guys. Take the trip. Do the project. Accept people for who they are. Don’t be afraid to love again. Let go of what no longer serves. And try to be present as much as you possible can. LIVE.
