What a true delight you
were to work with!
From the moment I arrived you welcomed me and made me feel comfortable.
I look forward to working with you again. Thank you. -- S.L.
No one who looks at these
pictures would ever
believe I am almost 70 years old; you made me look 35 years younger.
do that?! These pictures are really amazing! -- M. P.
I almost called to
cancel. I was so nervous;
I've never done anything like this before. But it turned out to be
fun, and I relaxed right away. I am totally surprised how comfortable I
felt and how much fun this was. And the pictures are great! Thank
you so much! -- K.S.
The pictures you took
were the best present
my wife has ever given me! And the poses you did of her were
perfect. It was like you knew exactly what I wanted. Thank you.

I always have felt that I
was fat, even in
those times when I had lost a lot of weight. But you have shown me that
I am not fat and that I am beautiful. -- R.M. [through tears of joy]
These pictures are great!
And I really enjoyed
the session -- after the first couple of pictures. This was well worth
the drive [300 miles] to do this. I already know I want to come
and do some more that are even sexier. -- T.R.
I appreciate that you
were very professional.
I have always wanted to do pictures like this, but I was afraid to. I
decided I was just going to go ahead and do it, but I was still really
nervous about it. You made me feel very comfortable, and I love the
I am really glad I did it. -- J.F.
My boyfriend is going to
love these! ... And
if he doesn't, there are plenty of guys who will! -- D.S. [age 62]
Firstly, thanks for
making me feel so comfortable.
You are a true professional. You make a woman feel worthy and
though we see so many flaws in ourselves. Those pictures are
to be a beautiful gift to a very special person in my life. Rick you
not only a professional photographer you are a remarkable person. Thank
you. -- Fay
I am so glad I came to you
for these pictures. As I told you when I called to get more
pose for my husband a lot, but the pictures just are not good and I
needed to see whether the problem with them is him or me. The
pictures you took of me show me the problem is him. You were nice enough to explain to me
it has to do with him not having the right lighting because that would
be expensive, and I can see why you say that when I see how you work
with the studio lights and he just uses the camera's flash,
but I don't think he has the eye for it that you do either. So I
think you were just being kind. Or
maybe he just loves me so much he thinks everything looks good.
But I know it doesn't. I liked that you chose just the good angles
and used lots of shadows to hide some things that need not to
show. And I liked that you were able to draw out and catch good
expressions on me instead of just shooting whatever blank or weird
expression I happened to have, not knowing what I am doing or how I
look. Thank you. -- W. R.
I saw the article you had
written for the newspaper,
and am just calling to tell you that you took nude pictures of me 30
ago, and I treasure them now even more than I did then. I always
they were beautiful pictures, but now they just mean even a lot more to
me. -- R.E.
I wanted to personally
thank you again
for the boudoir portraits that you did for me. As I told you my
is overseas and this was part of his Christmas package. He
loved receiving them for Christmas. In his package was also a
card and he called me immediately. I will always remember the
in his voice and how proud he was to receive them. He told me he
could live off those pictures instead of the food that was part of his
Holiday Gift. But his gift to me was asking me to marry him as
as he gets back to the USA. You know I was very nervous that day
at first but you were so professional and set me at ease it became a
enjoyable day for me too. I actually felt like I was a
I'm also thankful that you gave me the portraits on a disk just in case
the originals get damaged. If anyone else reads this and are
about doing this for "their man" I fully recommend it. -- P.K.
I am glad you have the CD
packages because we are on a limited budget now, but I wanted to be
able to give my husband some special pictures I knew he would
love. You retouched the ones I really liked, but he enjoys all of
them on his computer. He even has made some slide shows for
himself and added music to them. It makes me feel special and
beautiful that he likes them so much. I never thought of myself
as beautiful or sexy before and most days I still don't, but I have to
say you brought out something in me that I didn't know was even
there. These pictures just amaze me. When we can afford to
have some of the sexier ones printed, we will do that. I am glad
I have them now though. And we had some of the ones that were not
so revealing printed as 5x7s at one of the places you said we could,
and, just like you said, they are professional quality for less than
fifty cents each. I even had one of the nice portraits you took
during the session printed for my mother in an 8x10 for $1.50. That is
even more amazing! She loves it, and thinks I must have spent too much
money on her. I didn't tell her that wasn't true -- or about the rest
of the pictures. Thank you sooooo much! -- M.T.
I am so proud of my latest set of boudoir pictures. Thank you for
making me feel like a beautiful woman. You captured the part of me that
feels attractive, sexy, and desirable. You are so encouraging and have
such creative ideas about posing. I am simply average and have my
flaws, yet you made me look incredible! -- K.G.
I never thought I could
look this good. When I came in I had no intention of posing for
revealing because I was sure that would not look good, but after seeing
the first pictures you took during the session, I trusted your
judgment, and so I was willing to pose
nude. I am glad I did. These pictures are truly
phenomenal. I would
never have thought I could look this good. You do simply amazing
work! -- H. L.
I have to admit that once I saw how good the pictures were from the
first couple of poses, it was a real exciting 'turn on' posing.
That was an unexpected and added pleasure, especially after having been
so nervous. And it was kind of like a fantasy come true, but under
safe conditions, since I was comfortable with you. And it added
to my excitement when you thought the pictures were really good and
pointed out things about them I hadn't even noticed or never thought
about. I know you have photographed thousands of women, but you
made me feel special because you were so clearly enthusiastic about so
many of the poses and pictures and told me in what ways they were
different from what you had done before and how that was cool because it
allowed you to still be creative. You made me feel like I was
beautiful and sexy, and believe me, that was pretty miraculous, since
that is definitely not my normal self-image. So it was not just a
good photo session, but a great experience I am grateful to have
had. -- A. W.
I had thought I would be uncomfortable posing this way for a man I
didn't know (or even any man I do know, other than my husband, and
probably even for him). So, as I told you, I went to a female
boudoir photographer last year. But I was really uncomfortable
there because I felt really foolish trying to look sexy for a
woman. And the poses just came out kind of lifeless and my eyes
were blank or frightened or just puzzled looking. I stewed about
it because I thought I could do better, but was afraid maybe I couldn't
-- until I called you and decided to try again because you seemed to
understand and were encouraging. (Plus, I liked that you don't
charge any fee if I don't like any pictures, and you said you would show
me what you are shooting as we go along and I could just stop any time
for no cost to me if I didn't think we were getting anywhere.) I
was really surprised at how much more comfortable I was with you, and
how just having some sexual tension because you are a man (and because
you kid and kind of flirt in a fun way) helped the poses have some life
in them. I like these pictures much better. And my
husband really likes them better. So thank you from both of
us. L. D.
