Photo Posing For The TG Woman

As many of you have been reading, Robin had a beautiful, sexy, photo session…and today we met and picked the best of all the photos taken. However, Robin will be planning another photo session…as there were small details that can give away the TG woman. Example, I showed her how to always face a shoulder or leg AWAY from the camera (when twisting at the waist). Also, have your photographer be higher than you….as you will appear smaller and shorter. Close up those fingers, remember to cup the hand and fingers slightly. Keep your head up, back and slightly to the side–so you don’t  bring attention to your neck area.

Visit my web site for my DVD on Photo Posing, there are so many small details which will help you appear more feminine and will help you learn the tricks of hiding larger hands, or perhaps larger shoulders. The # 1 area which will help all of you, is to practice smiling. Men do not smile much, and this can ruin your wonderful photos. So, take some time to practice:

Tilting your head slightly, Smiling with your mouth open and closed, looking forward with both eyes looking towards one side, changing the shape of your lips…with pulling them in slightly (or out). And, most of all….as I teach in my Vol 1 Sensual Feminine Movement….stand with your weight on ONE foot not both feet–and practice pointing your toe. If your toe and knee are pointed in the same direction, WOW your entire feminine figure will change. Study how women cross their ankles, and the various hand positions with different foot and leg positions. I show all these items in my Vol 1 for the TG woman. Simply put, break out of your guy mode of moving, smiling, standing. You will feel more feminine and look more beautiful. If you’re in the Northern CA area, come and work with me!

My Boudoir Photoshoot – Getting ready for the shoot and getting there (with pictures)

Hi,

This is Robin with the third installment about my boudoir photoshoot session. When I finished the last installment I thought I would describe the events leading right up to the photoshoot itself (which will be in part four), but since I wrote it it occurred to me that there were a couple of things I wanted to mention first.

The biggest of these was may face to face pre-meeting with Denise Linley, the photographer. Part of the package I bought with the Groupon was a pre-shoot consultation in which I would meet with Denise to see some examples of her work, plan our session, and generally get to know one another before the shoot. I was looking forward to meeting Denise in person since by that point we had exchanged lots of emails and I had grown to really like her. I also wanted to see more of her work although she had posted a lot of it on her website. At the same time I was a little nervous about it since she had little experience with TG people and so I did not know what her reaction to me would be. Its one thing to be pleasant when exchange emails with someone and quite another to meet them in person. Again,  I asked myself what is the worst that could happen and  I realized it was not very bad (she decides not to do the shoot and gives me my money back).

Since I would be doing the photoshoot in femme, it was a forgone conclusion that I would meet her the same way. We planned to meet in a Starbucks near her home in Walnut Creed around 6pm. I was coming from San Jose and given the traffic I allocated a couple of hours to drive up and get settled. I dressed in my “usual” outfit consisting of Gloria Vanderbilt jeans and a patterned t-shirt (usually from Kohls). I picked my purple jeans with a purple and black long sleeve top. I added my favorite black ankle boots. I thought the outfit was suitably casual. I left work early, changed, and drove up to Walnut Creek. I arrived much earlier than I expected and so had over an hour to kill. I did some shopping (at Kohl’s – I know I am in rut) and got some food at a local gas station mini-mart. I arrived at the Starbucks about 10 minutes early, bought some water, and waited. Nobody there paid me much attention but I still sat there a little nervously waiting for Denise. A little sm28after 6, she walked in the front door and I waved at her.  She was easy to spot as she has beautiful long red hair and bright blue eyes. Her glasses were also quite distinctive. She greeted me warmly and we sat down to talk.

She had brought a book of containing photos of previous clients to show me more examples of her work. I really liked all the pictures. She asked me why I was doing it and I responded that it was mostly that I wanted some nice pictures of me. We talked about the shoot and how I wanted it to unfold. All my fears vanished.  She treated me just like any other client. The TG issue never came up. For someone who had never dealt with TGs, she was absolutely fantastic. I left our meeting trying to figure out what I had been worried about.  I had realized that Denise was someone I could trust in such an intimate setting and thus I could really do the photoshoot. I was feeling really good about it now.

At the meeting we had set a date in early May for the photoshoot and I was really starting to look forward to it. I put together a list of all the clothes I would need as well as some props we would need. For the Rene Faire scene, we agreed that the hotel bedspread would not look suitable and so I tracked down some really course  brown fabric (made from recycled soft drink bottles!!) that we could use to cover the bed. I found some candles that would give it some “mood”. For the construction worker I bought a tool belt and brought my “hard hat” that I had acquired years before. I arranged all the clothes in a garment bag and big suitcase. I ended up bringing way too much extra stuff (“is 3 extra sets of stockings too many?  How about 4 robes?” , you get the idea).

I also watched Denae’s video on “Photo Posing” to get ideas on posing (Denae is a former fashion model and so had lots of experience posing for the camera). The video gave me lots  of ideas.

Soon the date drew near, Friday May 5th. I often find that it takes me a little while to get my movement and voice into full “femme” mode and for the shoot I did not want to rush the transition.  I had some business travel that week and decided to the “extend” the trip so that I could spend at least 24 hours prior to the shoot in femme. When I returned from the trip I checked into a hotel near San Francisco airport and unpacked everything. It turned out there was a performance of the SF Symphony that night and, as readers of this blog know, going to the symphony and ballet are some of  my favorite things to do. They were performing pieces from “Early Beethoven” and given I like his work, I thought it was a great way to spend the evening. I had brought both a black and a blue skirt suit for the photo shoot and since I had already decided to wear the blue one for the photoshoot, I wore the black one for the Symphony. I added a cream silk blouse and some dressy sandals and was ready to go. I did not have time to buy a ticket on-line and so had to get one at the ticket window at Davis Hall. I stopped at the bar for a bottle of water and found my seat.

Overall I found the performance disappointing and was relieved when it was over. Evidently Beethoven’s skills developed a great deal over his career and his early works were simply not very inspiring to me. I left feeling like I should have just gone to a movie (it would have been cheaper).  I went back to my hotel and went to bed.

I awoke after a restless night and felt sort of tired. I was still sort of nervous about the shoot. I kept asking myself if I was really going to let Denise take pictures of me in my underwear but figured I was committed at this point. I also felt that it would really go okay and I had nothing to worry about.

The photoshoot was scheduled for 3pm and so I had much of the day free. I had wanted to wear a skirt that day and so brought along a nice brown corduroy one. I added another Kohl’s top and some flats. I checked out of the hotel and spent the morning shopping and having lunch. I needed to be in Walnut Creek (actually Concord since Denise changed hotels) by 3pm. I wanted a chance to shower before the shoot, change into fresh clothes, and redo my makeup . Unfortunately I could not use my hotel since it was after checkout time. I knew there was a shower facility at SF Airport and decided to try it out (in femme of course). I had a small suitcase and so looked like a typical weary traveler looking for a quick cleanup. The young woman at the shower greeted me warmly and showed me to my

private shower/changing area. It was only $15, a great deal for 30 minutes. I took a quick shower, put on clean clothes (crop pants with yet another Kohl’s top – I am truly in a rut), and was out the door. I decided that I was going to become a regular at that place, especially when going to SF for an evening event. It is much nice than changing in my car!!

I got on the freeway towards the Bay Bridge with an hour to spare. It was only 2pm and so I figured traffic would not be too bad….wrong.

I reached the bridge and stopped. I barely moved for 15 minutes. It was now 2:15, then 2:20 with little progress. We started moving a little faster and then stopped again. It was approaching 2:30 and I was barely on the bridge. I was starting to panic and felt all my femme composure slipping away. I figured it would take me at least 30 minutes to get to hotel from the bridge. I was almost ready to call Denise to let her know I would be late when things suddenly opened up and I got across the bridge. Driving slightly crazy I reached the hotel by about 2:55pm. I found a parking place, unloaded my stuff, and headed to the lobby to meet Denise. There was no turning back now…sm13

I have included a couple of pictures from the shoot. More will come in future posts.

Next time: the photoshoot.

My Professional Boudoir Photoshoot – Deciding What to Wear and Dealing with Anxieties

Hi again, this is Robin.

In my last posting, I described how I decided to find a professional photographer who could take good pictures of me and how I ended up signing up with one who would do a boudoir photoshoot.

After picking the photographer, my next question was what to wear (and how keep me from changing my mind about the whole thing!). To start with I had to think about what I really wanted from the photos. I came up with the following:

  • the photos to be “classy” and not the typical “TG Slut” motif that seems so common
  • to appear as feminine as possible, given the limits of my body
  • to have both clothed and unclothed photos
  • to show nice clothes in pretty colors
  • to be original and not just do “cliche” scenes
  • to be respectful of women and not be some caricature

I also decided I wanted a “story” associated with the scenes versus just showing up and getting pictures taken. I decided upon the theme of a busy, active woman at the end of her day who wants to relax and unwind in her room. It was a fairly “soft” theme but provided a little structure to the scenes. In some ways it also provided a “role” for me to play which made me feel a little less “naked” about the whole process. In some ways I was acting.

Now I had to come up with the scenes. I sent Denise a list of possible ideas and wanted her opinion on them. I figured I would pick the outer garments and then the undergarments to match.  My list was:

  • Businesswoman on trip returning to her hotel room
  • Opera league president returning from a fundraiser
  • Renaissance peasant woman returning from a  working day
  • “Steampunk” girl at the end of the day
  • Bride after a wedding
  • Construction worker after a day on the building site
  • “50s” mom after everyone has been put to bed
  • Party girl after the party

I based the choices based on both what appealed to me as well as what clothes I already had.

My favorites were the businesswoman, opera league, steampunk girl, Renaissance peasant, and construction worker. I thought the bride and 50’s mom were both a bit of a cliche. The Party Girl seemed too vague.

Denise generally agreed with my choices but thought the steampunk girl would not fit the hotel suite where she normally shoots her boudoir sessions. The Peasant girl was stretching it but adding a few props might make it work. We decided on those four scenes. Denise suggested an extra hour to handle the four scenes and I agreed.

This process actually was spread out over at least 6 weeks. I had decided to do the shoot in late February but Denise had a busy shooting schedule as well as family issues and so March went by. I had some business trips and a vacation in April (watch the tan lines!!) and so April slipped by. We ended up shooting in early May.

During the delay I went back and forth about whether I really wanted (could?) do this. I alternated between being excited about it and being terrified at what I had gotten myself into. I looked the mirror and wondered how I could ever pull off a boudoir photoshoot without looking like some bizarre creature. There is little to hide imperfections when just wearing a bra and panty. I could see every unfeminine thing about my body. I shared the idea with some women I know (including Denae) and they all thought I was being very brave for just doing it. They said that most women would be intimidated by the idea of a boudoir photoshoot, especially if you are over 30 or don’t have a perfect figure. I read some stories about actual models and how they are acutely aware of all their imperfections (which are invisible to almost anyone who sees them). I exchanged emails with Denise on this topic and she assured me that most of her clients did not have model figures and that part of her job as a photographer is to pose her clients in such a way as to make them look beautiful. She said she had a real gift in making all women feel good and look good during the session. I came to feel that  I could really trust her to make me as as lovely as I could be. I still had the butterflies but felt I could actually do it, at least most of the time.

I gradually put came up with general outfits for each scene. For the businesswoman I wanted to wear a skirt suit and “power heels”. For the opera president, it would be formal dress of some kind (but not bridesmaid) and dressy pumps. The Peasant look would be the Rene Faire outfit that I wear whenever I go to a faire (I love going to them since EVERYONE is playing dressup). The construction worker would be a  plain workshirt, jeans, and work boots. Denae thought the construction worker theme was a really odd choice as it is such an unfeminine outfit. I actually loved the idea since it was so contrary to some TG fantasy. As I realized after the shoot, it some ways it is very TG. Masculine on the outside, feminine on the inside.

Denise told me that typically her clients do 2-3 outfit changes in a hour shoot. This allows time for changing, talking, posing, photography, etc. For four scenes we decided to add an extra hour of shooting so that we would not be rushed.

In terms of which specific outfit for each scene, I went back and forth many times. Two of the scenes would be easy: the peasant girl and the construction worker. As I said I had the Renaissance Faire outfit that would work well for the peasant girl. I bought it years ago on ebay. It has a long cotton chemise underneath with “bloomers” under the chemise. I have a red lace-up bodice and long blue cotton skirt. The chemise was both plain and sheer which gave it a very sensual look. I added a belt and bag and a hair band of artificial flowers that a good friend made me. Some plain sandals made it work.

For the construction worker I wore blue jeans and a tan cotton workshirt. Just for fun I added a hardhat and a tool belt to “complete” the outfit. Underneath was a different store: red bra and panty. The contrast between the working clothes and what is underneath made the scene interesting.

The businesswoman scene was a harder choice, mostly because there were more options as I have 5-6 skirt suits in different colors. I wanted something with a rich color to it, something that would really stand out. I wanted it professional too. I narrowed it down to a royal blue suit, a black suit, and a brown suit. I wrote Denise and asked her which would photograph the best. She said rich colors are the best and so I ended up with the blue suit. I added a red silk blouse for a bit of a contrast. I had some black high heel pumps that look really good (but are completely unwearable for more than about 15 minutes). Some gold jewelry and a black briefcase/purse completed the look. Underneath I picked a bra with that was mostly white but had some black lace along to the top of the cups and black garter belt (what else!), black panty, and black stockings. One cannot have a boudoir photo shoot without stockings!

One bit of advice Denise gave that was really helpful: what you wear is less important than how you feel wearing it. If an outfit makes you feel beautiful, then its a good outfit. If it doesn’t then it does not matter what it looks like.

For the opera president, I wanted a formal that as long and looked like something an older woman would wear. I did not want the bridesmaid look. I had four  formals in my closet that fit the bill. All were strapless (or very thin straps) and I had them in red, teal, black, and blue/silver. I loved all four of them. I choose the blue/silver one since it was very lightweight and “flowed” wonderfully when I moved. The others were made of heavier fabric and did not drape as nicely. I had some black and blue/purple pumps that matched the blue in the dress. Underneath I choose a royal blue corset from Lady Marlene that I had purchased for $15 on ebay. I wore the same black stockings from the first shoot.

I kept changing my mind as to what to wear right up until the shoot. I ended up bringing extra outfits for the businesswoman and opera scenes to the shoot just in case I changed my mind at the last minute but I ended up going with the outfits I just described.

Denise and I finally agreed upon a date and time for the photo shoot. All I had to do to was to get there on time. In the next entry I will talk about my adventures getting to the shoot on time.

My Professional Boudoir Photoshoot – Deciding to do it and finding a photographer

Hi again

This is Robin, a occasional contributor here. I want to write about a recent experience I had doing a “Boudoir” Photoshoot with a professional photographer. It is going to take a while to cover the whole experience and so this is just part one.

Like many TGs I enjoy pictures of myself “en femme” and have taken many over the years. Unfortunately I have found that they are generally terrible. The lighting is off, the skin tone wrong, the angle is unflattering, the makeup either washed out or excessive, the posing awkward, the camera out of focus, some body part is cut off, the camera used  not very good. You get the idea, dozens and dozens of terrible pictures. This experience is not uncommon, you can see thousands of them all over TG sites on the web. For a long time I had no local place to take the photos and could do so only on business trips. I would pack a suitcase full of clothes, drag it through multiple airports, unpack it all in some hotel room, try to fit in a shooting time among business meetings, come up with some lame explanation to a coworker why I had such a large suitcase for a 2 day trip, etc.. I would go through all this work and get lots of terrible pictures. I tried different camera, bought photo lights, switched from film to digital but little changed. They were just awful.

Furthermore when I started doing it I used film and so had both the cost of film and developing to deal with as well as the stress associated with having strangers (the film developers) see me en femme. I had nightmares that some friend had a night job at a film developer and recognized me. Costco once mixed my pictures with those of another customer. Trying to locate them made for an interesting experience….

I pretty much gave up on photography in the last few years.

Recently I decided to try it again with my new zillion pixel digital camera. I lugged a huge suitcase from San Francisco to Boston, took lots of pictures, and had them mostly turn out terrible. I deleted the whole bunch. I decided I had to come up with something else or just give up on photography in general.

I do a lot of Groupon scanning, occasionally actually buying something. One of the regular “specials” are photo shoots from various local photographers. The typical proposal is a hour of shooting, a couple of actual prints, and an opportunity to buy additional prints at some discount. One might pay from $50 to $150 for this service. Different photographers have different specialties: family, individual, outdoors, fashion, and “boudoir”. I looked at the various offers and tried to decide which one to do.  The outdoor ones seemed safest but kind of boring. Studio shots seemed more interesting, boudoir shots seemed the most unlikely of all (I am not exactly a 25 year old model or transition TS with lots of surgical “enhancements”).

I did not do much on this front for a few months, as I tried to decide what to do. I thought that going through all the stress of a real photoshoot and then ending up with a handful of pictures hardly seemed worth the effort. Then in February of this year I noticed a new Groupon from a San Francisco based photographer who specialized in boudoir photography, Denise Linley at http://www.momentsbydenise.com.  She offered a hair stylist, makeup artist, an hour of shooting, and a picture book of 40 pictures for $250. It was an amazing deal compared to what else was available and was too good to pass up.  I figured since she was based out of SF, she had probably experienced everything including all sorts of TGs and well as other assorted San Francisco types. Nothing would surprise her.  I decided to send her an email to see what she thought about the idea. I figured at worst I would get a polite refusal. Even if she said okay, I could still back out. The notion of laying around in lingerie while some total stranger took pictures of me was scary beyond words. At the same I had been playing things “safe” for so long that I felt it was time to do something slightly outlandish. My previous “crazy” action was flying en femme (documented in this blog) which turned out completely okay. Afterall what is worst thing that could happen (other than she is some former coworker who now has a new career).

One night in a rash moment  I sent an email to Denise asking whether she would be okay doing a boudoir session with “CD/TG” types and waited for a response. I received nothing for two days. I figured this might be her way of saying “no” (i.e. “lets just delete the email from the weird TG”) but decided to resend the request just because email problems do occur. She responded quickly time indicating she never go the earlier email. She indicated that she was interested in a shoot  but did not know what “CD/TG types” referred to.

That was unexpected…It goes to show that despite the best efforts of Ru Paul and the Discovery channel, lots of folks don’t know about us. I sent back a short note describing the range of TGs (the two paragraph “your guide to TGs”) to which she responded with “that’s cool, if you want to look like a girl you have come to the right photographer”.

That was also a little unexpected (but very nice). It was now decision time. I had a photographer willing to do a boudoir photoshoot of me, was I really willing to do it? The possibility was now real and really scary. I would have a real hairstylist and makeup artist (not some TG “transformation” specialist) do their best on me so that I could strip down to my underwear, lay around on a bed,  and have a photographer whom I had never met take photos of me. They all assured me they would be fine with it, but I was not sure I was fine with it. I had this odd feeling in my stomach….

After a restless night, I decided to go with it. Afterall, what is the worst that could happen?? I sent Denise the payment and started thinking about what exactly I would wear.. I was committed (or perhaps I should have been committed).

Next time: deciding what to wear and sticking to my decision.

Beauty Tip By Denae Doyle For The Breast Form Store. Small Tips You Can Start At Home

The # 1 Beauty Tip

I was recently listening to a radio show, on fashion. A beauty expert, asked what the number 1 beauty problem men and women have. Any quess?

It is yellow teeth! They also suggested getting Coconut Oil to whiten your teeth ~ apply it, leaving it in your mouth for 30 mins, and presto..you will have white teeth. They explained that having your teeth professionally whitened (and I checked with my dentist) will DRY OUT THE ENEMAL ON YOUR TEETH. Also, put a small amount of Hydrogen Peroide (brown bottle for 99 cents) every day will heal the gums and whiten the teeth. When you wear Lipstick, the colored lips…will cause your teeth to look darker.

So, do a Goggle search on your own, and check the wonders for Coconut oil for whitening your teeth, with quick results and or Hyydrogen Peroxide which is in Most ToothPaste For Whitening! I have seen the darkest teeth become very white in 6 months, simply put a small amount in your mouth while taking a shower!.

Also, anyone who has bad breath? This is a direct indictator of gum disease. Start the peroide immediately, and call your dentist for an apt. You will NOT loose your teeth because of cavities, but instead…. due to gum disease. The strong smell is from the bacteria from the inflamed gums. It is a terrible smell. (My father was a dentist). I dilute the hydrogen peroxide with 1/3 as it burns my tongue a little. I have been amazed the the difference in teeth, with the clients who use this every day…and no damage to the teeth…your gums will get healthier. In the health news…they are reporting bad gums can increase your risk for heart attacks, since the backteria carries.

So, begin with your hydrogen peroide today, and avoid having tooth decay, bad breath, but enjoy having very white teeth! Put a bottle (99 cents) in your shower, and fill your mouth, it will bubble, so you can spit some out, but continue. Try for 5 mins. I have seen very white teeth in  4 months, if done everyday. When wearing lipstick, you will LOVE the results…with your new, white healthier, inexpensive treatment–as the pink or purple lipstick– will only cause your teeth to look even darker!

Also, they reported Coconut oil, will whiten your teeth safely in 20 mins!! The problem with lazer whitening, can cause some teeth to dry out….and can thin the enamal on your teeth! So, these two natural (and they don’t cost hundreds of dollars) will whiten at home, and cost 99 cents. Also, any sign of bad breath indicates bad gums not tooth decay. If anyone you know has bad breath, tell them about these wonderful ways and help them get started today with the hydrogen peroxide asap! Bad gums will allow the teeth to loosen and fall out. The smell, is from the bad bacteria in the gums! For everyone else, try the peroxide and or Coconut oil, as a quick inexpensive way to whiten your teeth before you go out. With the peroxide, you must put some in your mouth, and leave it for about 5 mins.

And, you can avoid a trip to the dentist. Let me know about your reseults. This will perfect on my Vol 3 DVD on head, shoulder and wigs!!  Everyone, try my new Tips For Cross Dressers, Vol 8..in DVD or download for $30.00. My summer special, offers my favorite DVD Vol 3 for Speaking & Listening As A Woman for half price! Treat yourself, as these are simple tips that will help you have a more feminine look when you go out, speak, move, swing your hips, apply your lipstick and look fabulous–so take advantage of my Summer Special. Buy 1 and the 2nd DVD or download is half price. Return to my home page, by hitting the upper BANNER WITH THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE AT THE TOP….DO YOU SEE MY EYES TOO? For the more serious  TS, pre-op, post-op…come and spend a few hours with me. I will help you with everything, we can even shop and get something to eat….so we can practice everything we covered. It will all become habit, once those high heels go on! Yes, you can go back and forth (for the Cross Dressers) so no worry. Come and see me this year at Southern Comfort in Atlanta, 2013 Middle of Sept. A weekend, will help you to visit all the best speakers in each area from facial surgery, SRS, Feminine Movement, Dance Sways, Hip Swings, Makeup, Wigs, Partials…it is a blast! If you would like to work with me while you’re there (and you can’t travel to the San Fran Bay Area) you can email me, and we can work for an hour, after my seminar…and I can see your clothing, makeup, wigs and offer suggestions. As well as covering those two more difficult areas VOICE and FEMININE MOVEMENT AND GESTURES. I make it fun, but you will have so much fun. We can sit by the pool, and or we can dress up for the Sat night dinner, with live music, even break out your evening dress. Stay tuned, I took a photo of myself, in drag as a man.

The first words out of my mouth, as I looked at the photo (beard, short hair, suit and tie) was…”Do I Pass”? How many times have a heard that, but now I “get it”. I hope to see many of you soon, if you can get to Atlanta. Some of the girls will go out on the town on Sat night, after the dinner dance, to the clubs in the area. So, take a flight out…so you can sleep in until 8:00 or so!! Smiles and Fun. Some more experienced girls fly in femme…or not!Beauty Tips For The TG Woman by Denae Doyle of FemImage
