Shades of Grey

Written on September 2, 2012 Categories: Washington Boudoir

A good friend of mine told me about this book “Fifty Shades of Grey” by E. L. James. She said it was right up my alley. I checked the book out right away. Wow! Bondage, sex and all the taboo subjects and it’s a #1 seller?!?!? Just goes to show you that sex does sell, and we all have that naughty side that needs to be unleashed once in a while.

After reading just few chapters I got inspired. This is my light interpretation of the story that captured imaginations of so many around the world. Hope you enjoy!


“I am going to have coffee with Christian Grey… and I hate coffee.” ― E.L. JamesFifty Shades of Grey

I don’t know why she is complaining. With Christian I would have coffee anytime of the day… or anything else he wanted.

“Men aren’t really complicated, Ana, honey. They are very simple, literal creatures. They usually mean what they say. And we spend hours trying to analyze what they’ve said – when really it’s obvious. If I were you, I’d take him literally. That might help.”  ― E.L. JamesFifty Shades of Grey

After doing some more research I found out that there are many books out there similar to 50 Shades of Grey. Some of them I read and can vouch for. Other’s were a news to me. If you read 50 Shades of Grey and craving more here is what recommends:

Carrie’s Story: An Erotic S/M Novel by Molly Weatherfield

Story of O by Pauline Reage

 Nine and a Half Weeks: A Memoir of a Love Affair by Elizabeth McNeill

Gordon: A Novel by Edith Templeton

The Sleeping Beauty Novels: The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty / Beauty’s Release / Beauty’s Punishment by A. N. Roquelaure

The Surrender: An Erotic Memoir by Toni Bentley

Now, I don’t want to say that this kind of experience is for everyone, but just to put it out there… At Oni Studio, there are no judgments or taboos.

    Make up your mind {Washington Boudoir}

    Written on August 19, 2012 Categories: Washington Boudoir

    Recently I did a boudoir photo shoot with a very dear friend of mine and Oni Studio makeup artist, Ashley from MakeUp Your Mind. It only took her two years to finally get enough courage to do it, but after the photo shoot she was so excited about it and pleased with her photos she wanted to tell her story.

    I have been working with Oni Studio for almost 2 years now, and I can’t tell you how many people come in so nervous about their boudoir shoot and leave so happy and confident about themselves. To see that transformation is one of many reasons that I love working with Oni Studio. However, upon meeting so many clients, the most common question I get, besides, “Can you come over and do my makeup every morning?” is “Have you ever done this type of shoot before?”

    Up until a few weeks ago, I couldn’t give an opinion based on my own experience, which is totally different than an opinion of one just observing. So after several people telling me I should try it out, my husband leaving for deployment in May and the real root of it… not feeling very confident with myself and how I looked, I gave in. It took me two years to finally strip down to my unmentionables and let Victoria (figuratively) have her way with me.

    Yes, I was a little nervous because I’m not a size 2, or a size 12 for that matter, and I’ve got stretch marks galore after pregnancy. Victoria listened to what I liked and didn’t like about myself, and was able to enhance and pull out my inner beauty and what I was wanting to portray in my pictures.They turned out beautiful and my husband couldn’t be happier! So, it’s important for me to say, just be confident in who you are no matter your size or insecurities.You will leave Oni Studios feeling like a whole new person!

      Being a military wife myself and living in the military community of Oak Harbor, deployments and work ups are something that we hear and talk about on daily basis. Be it a month, half a year, or a twelve month Individual Augmentee (IA) we dread it all and still brave through them. We know how hard our men work when they are away and so we try to give them a little piece of home in our e-mails, letters and care packages. Some new t-shirts and socks, home baked cookies, new video game… We try to be creative and figure out something new, but we should just stick to tried and true.

      Introducing a NEW Sexy Sailor Care Package from Oni Studio!

      There is a reason why pin-ups are so popular. They are no longer a trend. They are classic!

      Pin-ups became popular during  WWI and especially among sailors and pilots. They are tasteful sexy images of beautiful women that guys pinned up on the wall, over their bunk-beds, carried in their pockets and painted them on the side of their planes. They are good luck charms and reminders of better days ahead.

      Few weeks ago I attended the Pin Up Alooza seminar for photographers presented by Sandy Puc and Mike Long, both great photographers that inspire me. Mike specializes in the art of pin up photography and it was great to watch him do a live shoot right there on stage! I learned a lot of new tricks and ideas and that got me thinking that a pin up photo shoot would be something that any military wife needs to experience at least once.

      After the show I hunted Mike down just to take a picture. Yes, even photographers have groupies!

      Our Sexy Sailor Care Package includes an hour and a half studio shoot with a variety of backdrops and settings and several outfit changes. Bring a classic 20’s era outfit, a bathing suit, or a summer dress, stockings and a pair of high heel pumps. Being a pin-up is that easy! And if you need some ideas or would like to splurge on a new outfit check out the recommended links at the end.

      Professional makeup service is included in this package. Ashley, the owner of Make-Up Your Mind is very skilled at transforming you from an every-day girl to a goddess, and she makes sure that throughout the session you look your absolute best.

      In this care package you will find an 8X12 Print of your most flattering image. This PG rated print can be pinned up or framed and be proudly displayed in his private space.

      Also included is a page of 20 photo stickers. These he can peel and stick to the top of his bunk. That will keep him dreaming of you every night!

      Six 4X6 postcards with an envelope can be more revealing. Keep him counting the days with one-a-month hand written personal messages and a lipstick kiss. Spray a bit of your perfume on the back and he will read it over and over.

      Any additional prints can be ordered through our private online gallery and a web quality CD of purchased images is also included.

      Everything comes in a box and wrapped in brown paper packed with love.
