Hotel Monaco Spa Bath Mini Session with Fi

Oh ya'll, this is a good one!!!  The Hotel Monaco in Old City Philadelphia is the perfect background for this luxe spa inspired boudoir session and I am so excited to share just one of the sessions I did there a few weeks ago!  Meet Fi, a bombshell that I am obsessed with!  She was so willing to do just about anything for that perfect shot and boy did it pay off!  And you know what the crazy part is?  All of what you are going to see below was shot in just under 19 minutes!  Mini sessions are a fun way to do something totally different OR dip your toes into the boudoir world and I am so excited for our 2 day marathon at this location September 7th and 8th.  Sessions are $175 and include a 30 minute timeslot that as you can see with Fi, is plenty of time to shoot two looks!  While you certainly don't have to shoot in the tub with water in it, it certainly makes for some gorgeous images!

Meghan - A Philadelphia Rooftop Body Positive Boudoir Session

Philly Outdoor Rooftop Boudoir Session by Swiger Photography 29.jpg

Meet Meghan ya’ll! She is an incredible boudoir photographer out of Toms River NJ and last Monday she and I met up to trade boudoir photos on my roof deck overlooking Philadelphia! And it was pure magic ya’ll! I will be blogging the stunning boudoir photos she took of me very soon but I am just in LOVE with these Philly Roofdeck images of her. From her purple hair, to the great outfits, to that booty, to the city in the background, the whole session was such a breath of fresh air and different from my normal work and I love love love it! It was so nice to just hang out with someone who does what I do and who just gets that this industry is wayyy too over saturated with men! We laughed and traded stories and shot each other and it was the kind of thing I needed! So please enjoy some of my favorites, although its a lot more than a few this time! I had wayyyy too hard of a time narrowing this one down ya’ll!

Philadelphia Boudoir Session - Alabaster

Alabaster Philadelphia Boudoir Session-135.jpg

The first thing I ever learned about Philadelphia Burlesque Performer Alabaster was that she was the queen of selfies.  The second was that she is currently studying to her Master's of Education in Human Sexuality Studies. So needless to say, I was immediately intrigued and super excited to have her come in for a photoshoot to our Philly studio!  And the whole session was just as magical as I expected.  

Alabaster recently finished her first semester of grad school and she gifted herself the most beautiful tattoo on her sternum, which we obviously worked to showcase in some of the images.  She chose "the full apparatus of the clitoris because a lot of people dont know it's more than just the little nub you see on the outside, and because it's only function is pleasure" which lets be honest, is badass as hell!  I love that sex positivity isn't just something she is studying, but is apart of who she is as a person.  And I love that her session was full of the full range of who she is, not just the sexy bombshell the Philly community has grown to love.  

Below are just a few of my favorite images because I am already making plans to have her back in my studio for a little something something I am working on and I wanna keep ya'll all excited for more!  But please be sure to scroll on through some of my favs and then leave her some love in the comments.  Alabaster - I can't wait to collaborate with you again soon!!!!

Aly - A Body Postive Boudoir Session

Aly Philadelphia Body Postive Boudoir Session -90.jpg

I have "known" Aly online for awhile but had never met her in person till she came into the studio for a session and what immediately struck me was how full of joy and laughter she was.  She was confident and funny from the jump, willing to do anything during her shoot and because of that, her session was magical.  She laughed at my painfully corny jokes and was effortless the entire session and its not because of what you may think.  She's not a model, she just allowed her true self to be present the entire session, laughing and smiling because she was just being her.  And that friends, is the best kind of session.  

Aly, I adore you.  Photographing another photographer is nerve wracking and a little intimidating but you were just so incredibly sweet that my nerves melted away within minutes.  Your smile and laugh are infectious and your are freaking stunning.  The confidence you have is what self love and body positive is all about and I could have photographed you all dang day.  

I love this whole session so much and let me tell you, narrowing down my favs to post was damn near impossible!  But scroll on below and see what just a **few** of my favorites are.  

Hotel Monaco Glam Mini Session with Meg

Megg-15.jpg

The first time I met Meg, I knew she was going to quickly become a muse for me.  From her gorgeous smile, to those long ass legs, to the easy way she takes direction, she is just a joy to photograph.  So when I wanted to shoot an example of what you could get if you booked back to back mini sessions during our marathon next month, I knew she was the perfect!  And ya’ll, she is NOT a professional model!  (Although I’ll admit that she is def a pro when it comes to makeup!  Her make up always looks so good!!) We shot 4 different looks in about an hour and the results are images that I think embody both a fun, playful side AND the sexy siren she is!  I love how we were able to incorporate her vintage glam vibes into her session and do things that felt modern too and I am just in love with this entire set, and I know you will be too!

If you look at these images and want to have a session like this of your own, for ONE WEEKEND ONLY we are offering mini sessions at this same location.  You can choose between one 30 minute timeslot, or (if available) you can choose two back to back slots for the ultimate experience!  Each timeslot is $175 and includes up to two looks, images in the gorgeous tub/shower (with or without water!) and around the suite!  You’ll receive 25 digital images or 75 if you book two slots!  Plus a little something special from me to take home with you!  You can see what time slots are available HERE and learn more!   I can’t wait to photograph you in this gorgeous location too!  

Meredith - Queer Boudoir Session Philadelphia

Queer Boudoir Photographer Philadelphia

I shared my first boudoir session with Meredith earlier this year on the blog and I am so excited to be sharing her second session with me! This queer tatted babe is not only one of the sweetest people you could meet, but funny and kind too. Shooting her again was like a breath of fresh air and we made the most out of her mini session at my old studio and even ended with a little wet white tank fun too! I seriously adore this babe and I also love the way these images feel like her, something that I think is especially important for my queer clients! As always, I had a hard time narrowing it down but I mean, how can you blame me when she is so gorgeous!!!

And to Meredith - thank you for always trusting me to photograph you and for being so sweet to Jordan and I. We are you and Megan to pieces!

What happens when I combine a gorgeous hotel suite with the most beautiful bathrooms I have ever seen + one of my gorgeous friends?  Magic ya'll.  Magic.  Seraphina is....oh goodness.  Seraphina is laughter.  Sarcasm.  Edgy hair meets eyes the right person can get lost in.  Curves for days and a mind that will also take you on a journey.  She is gorgeous and funny.  And she is quickly becoming one of Jordan and my favorite people for a thousand reasons!  So when I decided to shoot promos for our upcoming marathon, I knew she was def going to be someone I asked to be apart.  I love how her mini session is a range of all things her and that, in her own words, she looks like a "harpy mermaid that will eat your heart out while looking stunning."  Which let's be honest, is accurate af.  Want your own mini session at this gorgeous location??  You can snag one for September 7th and 8th for $175, while they last by click HERE.

Selene Rose - A Philadelphia Hotel Monaco Boudoir Session

Philadelphia Shower Boudoir Session

What happens when you combine a gorgeous suite at Hotel Monaco in Old City Philadelphia with a belly dancer who is also gorgeous? Magic. That’s what. Selene Rose is the kind of girl up for anything, including get totally drenched in a shower just to get some amazing shots and well, the results are just that, amazing. I have gotten the pleasure of shooting this babe a few times and these are my favs so far! I just love how effortlessly sexy and her these boudoir images are, because to me that’s what sexiness should be about! I tried so hard to narrow it down to just a few favs but by now most of ya’ll know self control is not my strong suit so enjoy some many favs of this oh so wet boudoir session!

Brittiany - A Philadelphia Boudoir and Fashion Session

Philadelphia Boudoir and Glamour Session Brittiany-36.jpg

When Brittiany showed up at our Philadelphia Studio for her boudoir session and started showing me her outfits, I immediately loved her unique style and how she wanted to incorporate that into her session!  From the bold colors to her amazing makeup to the insanely gorgeous pearl necklace to those amazing thigh high boots, it all just came together perfectly!  The entire session had such a fashion vibe and it was fun to do something different in the studio.  Brittiany was so easy to work through poses and photograph and I am just so happy to be sharing my favorites from her session here on the blog!  And a huge thank you to Brittiany for allowing me to share them and be so fun to work with!!

Rachel - A Philly Boudoir Session

RachelPhillyBoudoirSession-15.jpg

It's a snowy morning and I can't think of a better way to warm up a Tuesday than with Rachel's incredible boudoir session!  I have known of Rachel for several years but this was the first time I really got to hang out with her and oh my is she so sweet.  And not only sweet but stunning too!  She brought so many different looks for her session and I love the variety we created!  From gorgeous gowns, to vintage furs, to sexy lingerie and body suits this session is one that seriously gave me the heart eyes!  

Rachel is one of those people who is so supportive of the people she cares about and that is especially true for the Philadelphia Burlesque Community.  From attending shows, to sharing events, to supporting the work her friends are doing, to the now kittening for some shows too...she is always, always, always supporting the people around her.  And that is something I adore about her.  In a world where a lot of people try to compete, its awesome to know people like Rachel just want to see everyone be their badass selves.  

I know Rachel you that you are nervous to see your entire session but I hope that seeing my favs shows you just how STUNNING you are.  Because damnnnnn your session is fire.  This is all you girl.  I just take what the rest of us already see.  Thank you for showing up, being yourself, and letting me photograph all that sexiness!  It was truly my honor and I hope you will let me do it again sometime.  <3. 

Anna - An Edgy Lokal Hotel Philadelphia Boudoir Shoot

Anna - An Edgy Lokal Hotel Philadelphia Boudoir Shoot

I remember reaching out to Anna and asking if she would be willing to model for me while I was shooting my summer boudoir marathon at Lokal Hotel in Old City Philadelphia and was THRILLED when she said yes.  Often my clients choose to not allow me to share their images online so whenever I can I try to work with a few models here and there so I can show new work and I knew that I wanted to show something a little edgier and darker this go around!
