Cathedral of Junk

The Cathedral of Junk is something you have to see to believe. Located in the back yard of a South Austin home, each piece of junk is wired onto the mass for stability. More than just a pile, it's kind of a fort or a castle with staircases, arches, walkways, and separate rooms. The structure is so secure that it contains cement steps that lead you to the pinnacle of the junk. Get as high as you want or stay on the ground. There's plenty to see. Austin just wouldn't be the same without it.

Boudoir Shoot: Nicole Pritchard

The last session in our boudoir feature this month is Nicole Pritchard. Nicole, a massage therapist by day and, came to us ready to try anything. The look of the shoot was based off the idea of being retro yet campy. The makeup and look was created by Amanda Brown and all the outfits and hair were done by Nicole, herself. Together Charlotte and Nicole wanted to show a definition of 'sexy' that is carefree and fun.

Boudoir Shoot: Lauren Rachelle

Adrian worked on his first boudoir shoot with model, Lauren Rachelle. The approach of the shoot was modeled after Maxim's style but with more of an edge. Adrian also wanted to experiment with the moods and colors a photo can produce. A big part of this shoot was Adrian's experimentation with different lighting sets and tones. View the full shoot on our facebook page. Here are some of our favorites.

Boudoir Feature: Clare Renee

Kim and Clare Renee met up for a shoot inspired by the 1930's, French boudoir style. The final product turned out to be a 30's meets Kim's goth side. Makeup artist, Amanda Brown, provided the Garbo-esque look while Clare's friend, Ada, took care of the hair setting and pin curls. Clare was wonderful to work with. We all appreciated her willingness to climb into a wet tree, bare all in 50 degree weather, and sit in hair and makeup for over 2 hours. View full shoot on Number 9's facebook site.
