Hey there! My name is Leila and I'm a photographer based in Hampton Roads, though I'm often heading to Richmond and Charlottesville for business and pleasure. My specialty is boudoir photography, which is my true photographic love. =) I'm only interested in shooting very classy, sexy boudoir. Nothing tacky, trashy or super sexually explicit. I believe wholeheartedly that the mystery of what's hinted at is often sexier than what's shown.
I'm on MM to connect with models to fill in holes in my schedule and to add new work to my portfolio as many of my clients do not choose to sign model releases for their sessions. I pretty much ONLY shoot boudoir, with the possible exception of head shots.
I'm happy to trade time for fully edited high resolution images. I would never give anything to a model that I wouldn't give to a paying client and I run my TF shoots exactly as I do for paying clients. I may have paying assignments from time to time, but probably not very frequently. Please get in touch if you'd like to see if we'd be a good fit for each other!
My TF shoots are run exactly like a paid client shoot. We'll start off by getting to know each other a bit and then through my posebook together to find poses that we both like. We'll then go over what you brought to wear and pick out our favorite outfits. We usually have time for 1-3 different outfits in the 1 hour session. I'll guide you through the poses through the posebook images, verbally explaining what to do and actually getting into the pose to show you exactly. The poses are just a jumping off point; I don't want to recreate poses exactly, just use them as a place to start. So your images won't look exactly like someone else's.
Once the shoot is over, I aim to have your proofs ready for viewing online within one week. The proofs will be artistically edited and sometimes lightly retouched, but are not final images. I'll show 20-40 shots and will ask you to pick your favorite 5. I'll take those 5, will have them professionally retouched by a dedicated Photoshop artist and will send the high resolution files via email.
Please let me know if you have any questions or different needs from a TF shoot. I'm happy to work with you so that we both get what we need!
Weekends are largely reserved for paid shoots and family activities. 99% of TF shoots must be scheduled during the week. I know that can be inconvenient for those who during the week and I apologize in advance. I'm happy to send over a link to my current availability so that we can find the perfect date/time with hopefully not very much back and forth emails.
Thanks so much and I hope we'll be working together soon!
