Wat Mongkolratanaram

I have been going to Wat Mongkolratanaram for three years and today was the first time I brought my camera. I had a blast walking around photographing the volunteers and the people at the temple. The food is amazing and it is a great place to go and relax. Every Sunday, starting about 10:30 AM, the families of Wat Mongkolratanaram prepare an enormous feast of traditional Thai foods for anyone who comes, and all are truly welcome. The prices are miniscule. Your only difficulty will be in deciding what to eat. I highly recommend going to this Tampa treasure and checking it out! The address is 5306 Palm River Rd. Tampa , Florida 33619-3746. I hope you all take the time to check it out one Sunday morning.

Anna's Boudoir Testimonial

I highly recommend Jonathan Fanning to any one who is looking for a photographer. I had a boudoir session with Jonathan and Krystol, and they both made me feel very comfortable right away and was professional throughout the photo shoot. Jonathan definitely has the experience and the passion in what he does. Jonathan helped me pick out the pictures to go in my husband’s “little black book”, and I can say that my husband what speechless when he saw the album. The whole experience is a once in a life time event, so I thoroughy enjoyed the whole thing, from the photo shoot, to picking out the pictures, to finally giving it to my husband and seeing his reaction; which was priceless.

Sexy Boudoir Photos, The Perfect Gift For the Man Who Has Everything!

Having a boudoir photography session is a great way to boost your self-confidence and add some spice to your life. Many women think that having sexy photographs taken is only an option if you are model-thin with a perfect body. However, getting professional images made with the right posing, lighting, and digital retouching should not only be reserved for celebrities. Your photographer will be able to emphasize your best aspects and minimize any areas of your body that are not your favorite. All women can be captured beautifully no matter their age, shape, or size. Getting boudoir photographs done is a great way to feel sexy, celebrate your body, and see yourself in a whole new light.   The motivation behind boudoir photography is to make every woman feel wonderful about herself. Each woman has true beauty inside of her, and it is the photographer’s job to bring it out. Dressing up in cute lingerie outfits and having attention lavished on you can be an excellent way to get in to[...]

10 Ways to Prepare for your Boudoir Shoot

Let’s face it, most people do not enjoy having their photos taken. So you can only imagine how that discomfort must increase ten-fold when they decide to do a boudoir shoot. In their underwear. Never fear, I am here to give you a few simple tips on preparing for your boudoir shoot. And they do not include starving yourself or working out like a mad woman. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, curvy looks best in this type of photography (and in real life in my opinion!) 1. Do not apply fake tanner. I know this is hard, especially if you are totally white like I am. But really, the camera is only going to enhance that un-natural orange glow you have and you will end up looking weird. 2. Do apply lotion. By keeping your skin super moisturized, you will create a natural looking glow that will come across in your photos as ethereal and heavenly. 3. Wear false eyelashes. I really can’t stress this one enough.  They make look somewhat fake in real life and you may feel weird weari[...]
