I’ve noticed that the one pic of Claudine’s wedding that I have posted here gets a fair number of hits so I am adding a few more for you to enjoy.  She is a wonderful woman and I had a lot of fun that day.

Sorry for the fuzzy scans.  I shot these on film and really need to dig up the negs and rescan them one of these days.  On the list like everything else….  — C.M.WebClaudineswedding01WebClaudinewedding05WebClaudinewedding11WebClaudineWedding13WebClaudineWedding14WebClaudineWedding15WebClaudineWedding16

Nothing throws your life into perspective faster than seeing someone having a worse day than you.  And these people were definitely not having a good day!watertruck_4679DSC_1529watertruck_4683DSC_1533watertruck_4685DSC_1535watertruck_4681DSC_1531watertruck_4689DSC_1539

I was reading Dorie’s blog and ran across her piece on Elliott Erwitt.  I have always loved his work myself and so I am putting up a link to his slideshow as well!

Below you can see some of my work that has a similar quality.

SomSiam_4256DSC_1391Last week I had the best meal. Great food – and great company. I went with Dorie to the new location of Som Siam in Old Saybrook. The food was tasty – and photogenic. I took some pix that you can see below. Dorie will likely be writing about it on her blog as well. Since she writes cookbooks, you have to know we had a delectable time. I will let my photos do the talking and leave it to her for the adjectives.

The restaurant is set back from the road, but very easy to get to, once you know where to look. And it is worth looking. Once they have an operational website I will post the link over in the Sweet & Savory column.SomSiam_4214DSC_1349

Marketing gimmicks for the most part simply annoy me, and I try to avoid them. I’d rather have you emailing me, calling me, shouting from the rooftops, because you love my work: not a two for one special.

But in deciding to add ‘boudoir’ photography to my repertoire, I realized that particular word really annoys me. Actually not the word itself, but the connotations now associated with it ….

So my apologies for the slight marketing gimmick, but keep on the lookout – the website will have a category popping up called “Fantasy Photography”. Something tingly, bubbly, intoxicating, and a little naughty. That is the kind of feeling I want women (people) to have from doing something fun like this. A bit of haute couture and some silk sheets. A lot of fantasy… medieval sorceress, Egyptian princess, Vogue model, or sultry temptress.

Trust me I will have fun doing this, too. We will get as silly, as creative, or as sultry as you want. Your choice, your intoxicating session. It’s a fantasy session, so whatever your fantasy happens to be, whether high fashion model, or temptress.

Or just you as the sensual wonderful person you are.  –C.M.

A conversation today with someone who was offended by something I had put on the blog reminded me that I am quite liberal when it comes to views on life. I was toning it down a bit for this blog because I didn’t want to offend any clients, but I realized today that when you hire the photographer you hire the person. And my attitude to life is ‘live and let live’ so I do not try to push my beliefs on others and always appreciate not having others try to convert me. One of the things I am very liberal about is sexuality. But I also apparently have a much broader view of it than many – or most.

Sexuality is life. Being sexual and sensual is being alive. Having desires is being alive.

Sexuality is spirituality.

I was delighted when I ran across the Abraham material and began finding things like this:

Sexual Energy and Spiritual Energy are identical Energy. When you are tuned in, tapped in, turned on–that’s the “turned on”. When Source Energy flows through you, it flows through you. You cannot separate one from the other.

Excerpted from the workshop in Chicago, IL on Saturday, September 23rd, 2000

So many of you spend your lifetimes arguing about what is an appropriate goal. We’re not kidding when we say you cannot get it wrong. There are no actions that are deemed inappropriate as such. Sometimes people say, “Well Abraham, you scare us, because as you talk about absolute freedom, we are afraid that you might give people permission to do bad things to other people.” Whether we give them permission or not, everybody’s gonna do what they’re gonna do, and you can’t get enough laws into place to keep that from happening. But we promise you, no one would ever do anything bad to any other at the same time they were connected to Source Energy. You never connect to Source Energy and lash out against anyone else.

The Sexual Drive Is A Spiritual Desire
But the truth of it is: Well-being is the order of the day. And the rampant sexuality that is the basis of your physical universe is a very good thing. It is the survival of your species. It is the ongoing of the species. It’s what keeps providing the environment of contrast that keeps taking thought beyond that which it has been before.

It is difficult for us to understand how you ever got so crossways of this natural inherent sexual desire that is born within you. It is a spiritual desire that comes forth.

You can legislate it, you can orchestrate it, you can make all kinds of rules and laws about it, and the desire will still triumph. And all your population will do is find greater and greater ways to be deceptive — as they are satisfying this one very inherent desire that is within them.

And so, we’re not great encouragers, you are discovering, of repressing any desire. Your desires are very natural. We are encouraging you to find ways to find vibrational alignment with the desire. So we would be talking in terms of Well-being. We would be talking in terms of a Guidance System that is alive and well.

You cannot feel a desire and be in vibrational harmony with it and at the same time be doing yourself in. But, sometimes, what happens, the teenagers, or anyone, for that matter, who doesn’t know about Energy flow, they don’t know about emotions, they don’t know what their emotions are telling them, they’re out there holding themselves in vibrational harmony with things that don’t feel good. So they’re pinching off their Life Force until they can hardly breathe. And then they’re taking drugs and doing all kinds of things so that they can numb themselves out so that they cannot feel the discomfort of being disconnected from their Source Energy. And in that place of disconnection, in that place of separation from their Guidance System, of course all kinds of things are going to happen… that they do not want but that they are in vibrational harmony with.

…There is great love here for you. Now. We are complete.

Excerpted from the workshop in Phoenix, AZ on Saturday, February 19th, 2000

The hypocrisy around the subject of sexuality is huge. Early on, there were others who were a lot more interested in you satisfying what made them feel good than in satisfying what made you feel good. There were so many things that you felt inclined to go this way, that you were forced to go that way, that at an early age, you made a conscious decision that if it felt good, it was wrong. And if it felt wrong, it was probably right.

Excerpted from the workshop in San Rafael, CA

Take it or leave it, I hope it gave you something interesting to contemplate. –C.M.
