Beyond the Valley of the Dolls with Dottie Champagne featuring Bianca Boom Boom

Dottie Champagne and Bianca Boom Boom are ready for a slumber party in this week’s final Beyond the Valley of the Dolls Photoset!

It has been such a pleasure to share my Beyond the Valley of the Dolls photos with you over the past few months.  My beautiful Dolls were a vision in their vintage attire and I’m so thankful for having the chance to work with Dottie, Bianca, Ivory, Betty and Sevvy.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some photos I took of the lovely ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque, so stay tuned!

For now, I leave you with the divine Dottie Champagne featuring Bianca Boom Boom!  Both these babes will be back again in the fall with my next photoshoot theme Bondage Bombshells!  Keep coming back because you won’t want to miss a thing!

Fireball St Stella

The gorgeous St Stella is back this week for another frisky photoset!

This bubbly, bendy, burlesque babe will be performing all over the city this holiday season.  You can catch Stella on December 10th at the Painted Lady for the Decadence Holiday show, on December 16th at Swan Dive for her Birthday FUNraiser and on New Years eve you’ll be sure to see her can-caning around the Moulin Rouge (aka the Gladstone Hotel).  There are so many opportunities to see this gal live in action, but for today here are some still shots to give you a tease.

Valley of the Dolls

2015 has been a year of new ventures and creative exploration for me.  Launching Dolly Shots has been such a wonderful way for me to explore portrait photography and share my passion with the help of my beautiful friends who have modeled for me.  While I know that I still have so much to learn I am happy with the images I have been able to put out so far.  Happier still to see how much joy it brings my models when they receive their finished photos!

Recently I decided to take my creative vision to the next level and organize a photoshoot with a specific theme that has always captivated me.  I gathered some gorgeous gals who also wanted to explore this theme and over the next few months you will see the fruits of this labour.

Bringing together a 1960s aesthetic, Russ Meyer influence and playful whimsy with a splash of vodka, I would like to present my Valley of the Dolly Shots Gals.  Stay tuned in 2016 for more photos of these buxom bombshells…

Bullet Bra

Fun Fact: Back in 2010 my sewing partner Laura and I both competed and made the top 10 Nationally in the Triumph Lingerie Competition!  

The theme of the competition was “Shape” and I decided to put a retro spin on my look with the very pronounced shape of a Bullet Bra.  I also made matching high-waist panties with attached garters and a billowy shear cape with velvet rose pattern.  It was a really great experience being in this competition and we got to attend a lovely brunch/fashion show and see our creations come to life on models.  I have been doing a lot of lingerie work recently and it’s nice to look back on one of my first creations with pride.  There will be many more lingerie posts to come!
