I recently had the pleasure of meeting up with the adorable Las Vegas pin-up model Darby Fox in Baltimore for a boudoir session. Darby and I were both in Baltimore for other projects, and we’d been communicating about scheduling a shoot, so I was thrilled that our schedules coincided for us to do so.
The location was a lovely hotel setting with floor-to-ceiling windows that gave us great natural light. After a few “warm up” shots in the cute dress Darby had on under her coat when she arrived, she decided to shoot without lingerie, using just the bedsheets as minimal wardrobe. As you can see in the photos below, she really rocked the look!
Darby’s extensive pin-up experience shone in this setting – she kept throwing out lovely boudoir poses and amazing expressions, and the session was very productive. In fact, I’ve been undecided whether to title this gallery as I did, or rather to call it “The Many Expressions of Darby.” As you view the gallery, I hope you notice both the subtle details of many of her pinup-inspired poses, as well as her varied and, well, expressive expressions.
I normally make perhaps a couple hundred images during a boudoir shoot, keeping about 50 or so as “finalists” to edit, and sharing 25-30 in a client or model proofing gallery. But Darby and I shot over 400 photos, and I shared far more edited images with her than usual; there were simply a lot of fantastic photos from the afternoon and they were great fun to edit and share.
For the photographers viewing, the photos in this portfolio were captured with Fuji X-Pro1 cameras and Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4R and XF 56mm f/1.2R lenses. Natural window light was the only lighting
