L'Appartement

This little nook of the studio feels very much like a Parisian apartment—especially when it rains. I want to cozy up to these large windows and envelope myself in their warm shadowy glow with a big bold mug of peppermint tea or decadent coffee (extra hot, please).

I was photographing my beautiful client, when she casually looked out the window. What came next makes my heart melt.

You can truly find a little piece of Paris in the tiniest of simple things.

I got to walk the streets of the Champs-Élysées with my husband almost seven years ago now. I’m so hungry to return. It was only 24 hours in Paris. But it was ours.

The streets of Champs-Élysées smell of the most exquisite perfumes. A delicious bouquet for the heart, mind, and soul. It’s on my list to return. Until then, there’s always the feeling of Paris in the rain at The Bungalow.

It’s captures like these that made me want to to specialize in boudoir. For me, boudoir is womanhood represented, and respected. I delight in subtle sensuality. I delight in love.

I delight in making my clients feel beautiful, because to me that’s what they are!

I placed my client’s hair in a top knot and let the moment speak to me. It was all so natural and free…effortless. Gorgeous Makeup by Kim Lopez.
