San Diego: Sometimes itís difficult for a woman to remember her stunning beauty, especially on a daily basis. The Boudoir Divas, a group of talented photographers located in San Diego, fully understand this. Inside the Divasí girly, enormous photography studio, women of all figures and forms are captured as stylized fashion models, retro pin-ups, and classic mistresses. The Divasí offices are adorned with walls of women theyíve captured-itís almost confounding to think youíll look that model-like as well in your photos.
My shoot started with Peggy, the studioís charming make-up and hair artist. Peggy poofed and powdered me up like a movie set pro (which she is.) Next, Crystal, the Divasí studio manager and one of the photographers, led me to a changing room stuffed with heels, outfits, and stockings, any of which I could choose from for my session. Two hours later, under the guidance of Crystalís encouraging remarks and suggestions, I was back in the pink waiting lounge to await my proofs. Clicking through my 60 or so shots, I couldnít believe the vamp, glamorous and captivating woman was me! (The Divas say this is quite a common reaction.)
Now on my coffee table rests a little black book, one of the Divasí package offerings. People pick it up and think itís some supermodelís look book upon first glance. No, I tell them. Just a daily reminder.
