It’s Friday! And a very special Friday at that! Today is the day I begin releasing my first ever nude set! Very exciting if not a little nerve wracking.
So I wanted to take a little time and talk about my first nude shoot and why it’s taken me this long to just get naked xD
My first nude shoot took place on the 10th of July 2018 and it was with a photographer I’d worked with once before – PurplePort: https://purpleport.com/portfolio/darrell45/ – so I knew he would be producing great images. I was meant to have Andy as my chaperone as usual, however they weren’t well so I had to go alone – not that I was worried, bringing Andy along is usually just for moral support and chatting to photographers whilst I get changed.
I’ll admit I was a little bit nervous as I arrived. I’m not shy and I’m comfortable being naked but modelling naked seemed so much more intense. But Darrell was wonderful and helped me to relax about it. We started with some lingerie shots on the bed (after having done a little re-arranging of furniture haha) before ditching the lingerie and swapping to using some mesh ribbon type props and then on to the roses that would be getting re-used for the milk bath section of the shoot.
Darrell was very professional and continuously checked to make sure I was ok and felt comfortable with what we were doing. It really put me at ease throughout the entire shoot. Once we were both happy that we’d gotten enough shots on the bed it was time to move to the bath.
Starting with a few shots of me curled up in the empty bath before running it. This was also my first milk bath shoot and I’ve got to say it’s pretty funny to watch someone pour in 4 litres of milk to a bath you’ve just gotten into. Honestly I was surprised we’d needed that much milk but it really made a difference.
I know a few people had been wondering why I didn’t do nude shoots previously and the simple answer was that I didn’t want to get pigeon holed. I didn’t want people to think “oh BlueMerkitten, she’s a nude model” and that’s it. So I had been doing my best to do a variety of fashion and glamour shoots before even considering nude. Now I feel like I’ve got enough variety I’m happier to start offering nude as a level that I work to.
That might seem like a silly way of thinking but it’s how I wanted to work things ^_^
