They say that Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and if you sparkle like these Dames then you’re my best friend too. I am delighted to welcome back the Diamond Street Dames to the YTKblog. At the end of April we ran our popular Burlesque/Boudoir photo shoot. This workshop spanned two-twelve hour days, 24 participants, three amazing assistants, six different setups, and over 4,500 images, all hosted at the delightful Club Helsinki in Hudson.

We explored the art of seduction and sensuality – a  transforming experience for all. Most of these women have never posed in this fashion before and I AM BLOWN AWAY by these images. Thank you all for your trust, sincerity, laughter, and beauty.

Make sure that you see the Dames Preforming at Club Helsinki in Hudson on Sunday June 2nd. Click here for more details.
