Bondage Bombshells

I am brimming with excitement at the thought of sharing all the images from my most recent photo series Bondage Bombshells with you!

Inspired by the works of Irving Klaw and Bettie Page the Bondage Bombshells series features a classic pinup aesthetic with a devious twist.  My lovely models for this shoot were Kitten Monroe, Dottie Champagne, Lorelei, Sarah, Bianca Boom Boom and Betty Quirk.  These gorgeous ladies had a wonderful time being tied up by our Shibari Master JP Robichaud, whose incredible talent with rope was the cherry on top of this series.

Please enjoy the first instalment of Bondage Bombshells and stay tuned for more!

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

I’m back from a refreshing break with a new energy and some tricks up my sleeve!

I am so excited to share the photos from my latest photoshoot with you!  As always, I drew a lot of my inspiration from Russ Meyer and so, since I’ve already done The Valley of the Dolls, this new set is called Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

These gorgeous burlesque beauties were the perfect models for this 60s nostalgic theme and it was an absolutely pleasure capturing Bianca Boom Boom, Sevvy Skellington, Betty Quirk, Dottie Champagne and Ivory in this pink dream set.

Please enjoy the first instalment of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls…

Star Wars Babes

Henrietta VIII is the most powerful crime lord in the galaxy and Betty Quirk is exactly her kind of scum. Being dangerous space criminals has never looked so good! These ladies are ready to showcase the perfect balance of flawless pinup style and a total lack of morals.

Betty Quirk may have no love for the empire – but she loves to pose in her finest Mandalorian armour exactly “as you wish”. Ho ho ho… Be careful to stay on Henrietta’s good side because this Hutt does not take kindly to disappointments. When not posing for the camera she enjoys decorating her home with people who have betrayed her, frozen in carbonite. Don’t worry though – both of these sci-fi femme fatales agree that you’re no good to them dead!
