Heather Glenn – Elysian Bloom Boudoir

Congratulations to Heather Glenn of Elysian Bloom Boudoir based in Dallas TX.

Kiati’s comments on this image “Oftentimes a detail shot Is something we do as an add-on shot that plays a supporting role in the story of the session displayed in an album, but not in this case. This image definitely stands out as a centerpiece. Beautiful use of light and shadow to sculpt the body. I love the tones and I can easily see this as a large wall art. ”

Brianna Ellis – Brianna Lane Boudoir

1st Runner up for May is Brianna Ellis from Brianna Lane Boudoir based in Stillwater, MN.

Kiati’s thoughts on this image,”I love how the leading lines of the frame of the body draws the viewer to the tush as the focal point. The play between the dark on the left and the light on right also frames the body well. Another well crafted art piece that would be beautiful printed on the wall or displayed on the desk. As an anonymous image, this image will work both as a landscape as well as a portrait ”

Brianna Ellis – Brianna Lane Boudoir

2nd runner up is another image by Brianna Ellis from Brianna Lane Boudoir based in Stillwater, MN.

Kiati’s comments on this image, “You can feel the raw sensual emotion in this image. The subject is fully present in her thoughts and you can see that in the details of her pose. You can see the sensual tension in her shoulders through the pop of her collarbone and through her arms and fingers. The contrast of the red and white is beautifully balanced and that is carried through not only in the sheets and her outfit but also through the light and it transitions across her skin. Well done!”
