She hesitated to agree with publishing this image, but she did. Thank you Jane. It was a pleasure to work with you, and you expressed gratitude to what we achieved together. I’m glad I could bring you confidence.

Cat-Suit – NSFW

beauty, erotic, Nude

Please enjoy Jane, posing in her catsuit.

rather difficult to make images of a good looking body in a catsuit not look ‘sleazy’ or ‘cheesy’ or whatever you might call it. (cheap looking soft erotic style)

I hope I managed in some way to prevent these images from looking that way. I’ll leave the judgement up to you.

Thank you for watching, thank you Jane, for being my patient model on this cold day, thank you to the owners of the house for granting me acces to this great playground.

Determination and thankfulness – nsfw

beauty, erotic, Nude, Personal Pictures, Uncategorized
“I had the impression that Ludwig was not really convinced about my determination to pose nude. I think he wanted to be careful not to hurry me into things I didn’t want to.” Then I told him, “I have decided to pose nude, and I want the images to show that I am proud about it. I am proud to be the woman I am, and I am willing to show that to the outer world.” And that is what I wanted to express, the determination I found within myself to show my body and my nudity to myself, to my husband and to the world. I think no woman should be ashamed or scared about how she looks. Even if it took me a long time to convince myself to pose nude, I’m so glad I did it, and I would encourage every woman to do the same.
Thank you Ludwig, thank you to my husband and to Ludwigs wife Nathalie, who helped me trough the process.

Damsel in Distress

beauty, Nude, Personal Pictures

talking about archetypes 😉

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 The damsel in distress or persecuted maiden is a classic theme in world literature, art, film and video games. She is usually a beautiful young woman placed in a dire predicament by a villain or monster and who requires a hero to achieve her rescue. After rescuing her, the hero often obtains her hand in marriage. She has become a stock character of fiction, particularly of melodrama. Though she is usually human, she can also be of any other species, including fictional or folkloric species; and even divine figures such as an angel, spirit, or deity.

White – NSFW

beauty, Nude, Personal Pictures

as promised.

This image has an even more zen-look to it I think. The expression and the eyes closed make this image a witness to the models well being at that moment. Thank you Elisa, for being my model that day.

As I said yesterday, this image is taken at the exact same spot as the previous one. That is why I love working with available light, it gives you so much possibilities in a single space, …

Oh my goodness – NSFW

Nude

I’m getting more and more visitors on my site, year after year for which I am thankful. It means my images appeal to at least a certain public. But I get less and less likes or comments on my images. Not that that really bothers me, but it made me think that we might not have made much process in accepting nudity in society, since R. Doisneau made this little secret setup capturing the public reactions to a painting depicting a nude woman in some art gallery’s vitrine.

“La femme indignée by R. Doisneau 1948”. There’s more images to be found on the internet. look for ‘le regard oblique’.

Dare to express the love for female beauty my friends. Nothing wrong with that 😉

while you are here reading, you might as well take a look at my galleries, some new images are added from time to time.

Cherry Blossom – NSFW

it is not really the season for cherry trees blossoming, but this is from earlier this year.

A giant cherry tree in early blossoming, of course mirrored to a beautiful woman.

A single image post, from the same shoot as Sirrus and some other images with Pauline. Thank you Pauline for your efforts and good mood.

Shadow play

beauty, Nude, portrait

I brought a mosquito net into my studio space. I installed it on the attic.

We fooled a bit around with the bright light that drops into this space when the sun is coming in. The shadow creates a second person in the space. I kinda liked how the shadow and the original interacted with each other.
