SARA ESPINOZA PHOTOGRAPHS THE LS1456 FASHION WEEK

Photographer Sara Espinoza writes in:

On November 12th I had the opportunity to be part of the LS1426 Fashion Week (Fashion and Beauty Consulting Company).

This year the show was hosted by Whitney Thompson, first plus model to win in 2008 the well-known show America’s Next Top Model.

Some of the designers that were part of the event were Franovik Designs, Big Girlz, Inc., Sarahi House of Fashion, Edward Dillard Evening Wear, Bien Roule Full Figured Curvy, Alton King, and more.

The lovely evening took place at the Marriot Miami Biscayne Bay in Miami Florida. Part of the proceeds from this year’s event was destined to charity organizations.

I’m so proud of all the models that participated in the show. They worked their curvy figures in the runway. They represented gracefully the designers and their work.

Here are some photographs that I took from that night. Enjoy! MORE IMAGES →

BOUDOIR MAGIC WITH STORMY SLOANE

Boudoir photography can be dated as far back as, well if one might say, photography itself. As you look back, sensual, if not erotic, paintings depicting women in their boudoirs with nothing but their chemise on can be attributed to the baroque and rococo eras of art. One such artist is François Boucher. Far from pornography on canvass, these paintings are tastefully done and a spectator can only marvel to appreciate the art, the beauty, and the effort to achieve such a masterpiece. MORE IMAGES →
