|Many times, after a fantastic photo shoot, some of my clients wish to express
their gratitude by sending a gift. Now, as I certainly do not EXPECT this gesture,
I do appreciate it. Sometimes it brings them feelings of warmth to send tokens
of friendship and support, and when this happens, it brings me the same
feeling. If you do feel compelled to send a gift, but don't have any idea what
would be appropriate or appreciated, I have provided a guide.
Other times, you may want to lighten your own load by donating items to the
business, or to other less fortunate girls. In this case, any items related to cross
dressing, such as wigs, shoes, clothing, makeup, purses, perfume, corsets,
costume jewelry, etc., are always appreciated. I have a lot of these items, of
course. But sometimes girls need to borrow things, and I do not like to loan out
my things, since I spend my personal money on them. Sometimes I do loan
things out, and they are not returned. Therefore, I would love to have a special
box set aside for girls who don't have anything to wear when they go out, or for
girls that recently "purged."
If you ever find yourself wanting to donate items to the business, that are not
crossdressing-related, I can always use items that would serve as photographic
"props," such as backdrop material, fancy chairs (or furniture), vintage/pinup
telephones, rugs, cute footstools, rollerskates, or anything else that would look
good in a photo. I'm also always looking for any and all forms of camera and
lighting equipment (heaven knows I need a new camera desperately!),
especially if it's NIKON :-)
For more personal gifts, that are NOT related to the business, I always love gift
cards and gift certificates for any kind of clothing, electronics, hardware,
fetishwear, makeup stores (Nigel's Beauty Emporium is my favorite, Frend's
Beauty Supply, Naimie's, Cinema Secrets, MAC Cosmetics, etc.), or Amazon.
Last but not least, many of you that have been here, know that I desperately
need more space. I have outgrown my studio and I'm always on the lookout for
a new location to work from. If any of you know anyone who is in real estate, or
someone who is willing to rent me a WAREHOUSE in the NoHo/Burbank area,
please get in touch with me. I need at least 2,000 sq.ft.!!
If you would like to mail any of these things, you may do so by sending them to:
