Kelly Shibari Shoot. Tax Day. April 15th, 2009.




I had the pleasure of spending my Tax Day filming a solo with the beautiful, sexxxy, Kelly Shibari. Kelly is an adult film actress who has worked with several different companies throughout her Illustrious career in the adult industry. Kelly Shibari is one of the smartest, humble, brutally honest, and sincere people I have met working in the adult industry. I met Kelly at work. She is a loyal customer and we love every time she comes to Adult Factory Outlet. I think it was the second or third time that I saw her in the store that I found out she was in the adult industry. I think I asked her a question about one of the lingerie pieces she was purchasing. Or I think she was asking me a question about a specific g-spot toy. Regardless, she casually mentioned that she was in porn. I thought it was pretty cool. In porn standards, Kelly would be considered a BBW actress. BBW is an acronym for "Big, Beautiful, Woman." While Kelly was getting ready for the shoot we talked about her size and how she fits in this sort of middle ground when it comes to BBW actresses and skinny actresses in porn. Most of the BBW actresses that I see on porn covers at AFO are far waaaayyyy larger than Kelly Shibari. Kelly is nice and curvy with GORGEOUS breasts and a nice butt! Not only that, she is charming to boot and uber professional. It was fun getting to chat with her while she was getting dressed for the shoot.

My friend Hatnim Lee stopped by the shoot to take some behind the scenes footage of the shoot. Hatnim's an AMAZING photographer. Shes in town for a bit and wanted to swing by LeMayzing Studios. This was Hatnim's first porn shoot. I thought it was cool having her there and seeing how things get done at LeMayzing Studios. She took a bunch of pictures all over the studio. Hatnim and Kelly were chatting up a storm while Kelly was getting dressed. Hatnim had a bunch of questions about the adult industry and Kelly was more than happy to give her the answers. it was real cute watching them get acquainted.

I was nervous the day of the shoot. This was the first shoot that I was booking on my own. I wanted everything to work out. I didn't want my first shoot to be a bust. I made sure everything was set properly and that the studio was ready to go. I woke up extra early to make sure that everything was going smoothly. When Kelly showed up, I was ecstatic. I was happy that she didn't flake (which happens alot). I ran out to give her a great big hug. Once I knew Kelly was at the studio I relaxed a bit. I was happy that Eddie and I were ready to go once Kelly finished prepping herself.

When we got into the studio we talked about what we wanted to shoot. I love hearing the performers ideas. It lets me know how they work and what kind of stuff to expect when I'm shooting them. It also lets me get a taste of thier personality and artistic style. I like it when a porn star can strike up a conversation on whats gonna work or not instead of shit like "Roll the camera, we're fucking in the corner and only doing one take!". We started off doing stills of Kelly on the bed. Eddie was busy buzzing around click click click with his camera. Kelly was working it! She knew how to move and respond to Eddie without any hesitation. Hatnim was busy taking pics of all the action while I played around with the camera.

Kelly has such a beautiful face. Eddie didn't have to direct Kelly much. She was on point and smoldering. When Eddie does stills I usually play around with the camera. I like look at every inch of the person's body with the camera before I start shooting them. I'm doing much better now handling the camera. I don't get as fidgety as I used to. We shot with one camera and I was operating it the whole time! Eddie was by my side giving me some pointers. We shot a bunch of fun footage for Behind the Scenes stuff first. I had the camera rolling while Eddie was doing the still shots. We laughed alot and took some silly pictures. At one point, Kelly walked right up to the camera and started jiggling her big breast. We were laughing so hard! She also grabbed her dildo and put right in front of the camera!



It's great being on a shoot with performers that know how to have fun on set while still being professional. We had such a good time shooting Kelly Shibari at LeMayzing Studios. I'm very much looking forward to working with her again in the future.
