What is your favorite part of the boudoir photography experience?

My favorite part of the experience is showing people how sexy they are.  Also, I really like the part where I get to spend time with shirtless men, making them flex their abs and make hungry eyes.
Who would you like to most like to photograph, and why?
I would love to photograph Matt Bomer. Or Ryan Reynolds. Or . Or Matthew Gray Gubler. Or Jensen Ackles. Or Eric Skarsgard. Or Adam Levine. Or Mark Whalberg. Or Ian Somerhalder. Or Jake Johnson. Or Jimmy Fallon.  I don’t think I need to explain why.
How do you overcome creative blocks in your work?
Creative blocks are the worst, and something I struggle with often. I google inspiration photos. I chat with creative people. I shoot in my niche for fun. I try something new that scares the hell out of me. I photograph my children, my house, my friends, my pets.  I google some more. I learn some new editing techniques. I rearrange my studio. Then I drink a glass of wine. That last one is important.
What kind of beauty stops you in your tracks?
I specialize in men, so I will answer in that theme – a strong jawline, long lashes and a piercing gaze.  It gets me every time.
What are your five desert-island must-haves?
Moscato wine.  Pasta.  A furry pet.  A great book.  False lashes.
If you had zero restrictions, where would you live and how would you spend your time?
I would live in Africa in my own animal reserve.  I would love to rehabilitate and house lions, tigers, elephants, hippos and the like.  I would spend my time taking care of them, and getting giant elephant and lion hugs.
