So as I'm sure everyone realises I'm not a "Mistress Slash Model" – I'm fetishist not a Fetish Model. My personal fetishes are more about me communing with my leather, fully fashioned nylons and beautiful Louboutins – I have a more classic than extreme aesthetic 🙂 That said – as everyone knows I'm sure my main website is badly outdated so I really need to get some new photographs done so everyone knows what my playspace is like now (amazing) – and what I'm looking like…
Enter my latest "yikes" moment!
My good friend Sarah has taken some incredible photographs of me over the last few years – and I feel she really connects with the FemDomme aesthetic I hope to capture… She's moved to Queensland but was visiting over the new year – so in November I locked in a date with her…. the Third of January … Oh dear – what a recipe for disaster!
Now I'm sure you know ladies like to look their best on these occasions! Though I always try and balance that with "being real" because my goal is for my potential submissives to get an idea of what I look like not to appear in a fetish magazine – this was all good back in November – I'd started a running course, was lifting quite heavy and doing lots of yoga (as usual) – even eating more vegan (as opposed to vegetarian food)…
Then the troubles start! I get a knee injury so the running (and yoga) were out for six weeks 🙁 I probably shouldn't comfort myself with delicious champagne or red wine but you know – sometimes these things happen when one is a decadent hedonist! Then it's the holiday season – parties, dinners, more parties… me being cranky with my knee – I'm sure you get the picture… then I realise I'm going to be hormonal on the day of the shoot.
The final straw? A nasty cold and a few nights of bad sleep – so not feeling glamorous in the slightest!
But I decided to look on the bright side – this is probably slightly worse than my everyday session look (I even did my own makeup) so no one is going to be disappointed if they come in and I don't look like my photos – hence the title of this post What You See Is What You Get Mistress – no professional makeup, no borrowed outfits, no photoshop miracles – just me!
I haven't seen the photos from my photographer yet but here are a couple of behind the scenes phone pics that my friend took on
So that was my start to 2013 – with lots of sniffling! Apologies to anyone who's been trying to get in touch with me over the last week or so – I don't take bookings when I'm not well so I haven't been answering the phone… well on the mend now thank goodness! Being sick is very dull…
