Hello! I know, I know; it's September and maybe a little too late for swimsuit photos but about a month ago, Nicholas Von Thrower shot a couple of my favorite bathing suits at Texas Beach in Richmond and I couldn't resist the urge to share them with you guys. You might or might not remember but Nicholas has taken photos a couple times for my blog before. He shot last summer and earlier this past summer.
Nicholas currently attends school in Virginia for photography. He specializes in women's fashion and the female figure in his photography. Like I've said before, his photography blows me away and I expect to see his work in copies of my favorite publications like Nylon within a few years. Besides taking and editing such wonderful photographs, he also gives incredible direction when shooting. Clearly, Nicholas knows what he is doing and it's always a pleasure working with him. You can check more of his work out on Instagram @flowersdaddy and Flickr /NicholasVon (as a heads up, he features a lot of his NSFW photos on his Flickr).
For the shoot, I donned a black one-piece swimsuit with sheer detailing as well as a vintage Budweiser bikini. There was a distinct retro, understated sexiness to the photos. Red lipstick added a touch more of my personality to the shots.
