My wife, Giselle Donnelly, is now living as herself full-time, and I couldn’t be prouder of her! She works as a scholar at a Washington think tank so she’s a bit of a public figure. As such, Washington Post reporter Josh Rogin wrote a column on her transition, work, and the documentary short film covering our love story. The Makeover will premiere at the Alexandria Film Festival on Saturday, Nov. 10. Tickets may be purchased at eventbrite.

Kaitlyn and I had a blast this spring over several days at my studio near Washington, DC. For one her fantasies, Kaitlyn asked for a bridal experience. However, she wasn’t really crazy about marrying anyone so we invented a fictitious, absentee bride, Aurora, for our day of role playing. I was the makeup artist, photographer, maid-of-honor, and bff. Super fun!
We started out getting Kaitlyn’s hair and makeup ready while she wore a comfy, pink spa robe. One can’t sit down easily in a wedding gown after all! Then Kaitlyn tried on three wedding dresses from my studio wardrobe until we decided on a dress, veil, and long gloves paired with a bouquet of red roses. We totally had to do the tradition of “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” She borrowed my necklace and clip-on earrings that I wore for my 1996 high school homecoming formal–something old and borrowed, check. She wore a garter with a blue bow–blue, check. And we opened up a brand, new pair of white stockings for her big day–something new, check!
Here are some photos from our fun together. After pictures, we retreated upstairs for the juicy bachelorette party and gossip-dishing over sparkling wine and croissant sandwiches. I think we both agreed that we had a terrific day of celebrating Kaitlyn the bride!
If you’ve been fantasizing about wearing a wedding dress and celebrating all things you, book your fantasy feminization session with me today!

Allison and I had a ball at this photoshoot. We originally planned on an outdoor steampunk-themed shoot on the lake, but the weather just didn’t cooperate. So we took some of our favorite props—a corset, bustle skirt, choker, and peacock feathers and made a day of it inside.

Vivian Davis loves the 1950s Beat Movement aesthetic, often characterized by berets, bongos, vinyl records, and books that challenged publishing norms of the time.
Vivian requested smokey eyes with strong eyeliner wings and a soft, pink nude lip. To keep the feel of the 1950s, we shot Vivian in black and white and pumped up the contrast in the resulting images. Vivian and her wife, Jes, rounded out the shoot cuddling together while listening to vinyl.
