The stars had aligned and all our planning and preparation payed off. I met up with Yesenia at my rented loft apartment in Harlem for a day of shooting lifestyle boudoir and nudes. I had one of my top clients flying in from Atlanta to join me on this 1:1 session.  It’s not an easy task to plan and put on events in another time zone some 3000 miles away but Blaise and Laura at my studio pulled out all the stops.

01. My sumptuous penthouse apartment was in the beating heart of Harlem, right opposite the famous Harlem Shake diner where Bill Clinton pops in from time to time. He lives just a few block up town from here. The area around 125th street is alive with character and the buzz that is New York.

02. Yesenia is a bundle of fun and I styled her here in a silk night dress.

03. The painting of the girl on the mantlepiece intrigued me and I needed to include it in the set so I directed Yesenia into thew corner and lit her with the Lupo. The boho top was from ebay.

04. The realistic air brushed painting/ photograph of french doors in a Parisian villa was printed onto a flock wallpaper and hung in the apartment. It looked fabulous and added a bit of interest to my portraits. I matched the direction of light from my Lupo 650 to align the shadows.

My client and I both shot on Fujifilm X-T2 cameras…
