Photographer of the Week: Autumn Luciano

This week’s photographer is Autumn Luciano, who nicknames herself ‘Naughty Autie’. Here she is having a ‘Marilyn Moment’:

She runs the photography firm Decadence Dolls, which is based in Lansing, Michigan, and specializes in retro pin-up work:

‘I created Decadence Dolls in the fall of 2009, not only because of my love of the past, pin up, and the vintage life style, but also because I truly enjoy helping women see how beautiful they really are. I love seeing their confidence rise as they see their photos for the first time. It is an empowering, fun, and sexy way for women to express themselves.’

Some of her early work was influenced by Irving Klaw, with predictably less than impressive results:

The model being spanked is Jack Früt, by the way. Here’s a closer look at her:

In the Klaw shoot she was across the lap of Valerie Glitterbiscuits. These models do adopt the most ludicrous professional names… but the best of them all is coming up in a moment!

Autumn seems to have quickly cottoned on to the fact that this wasn’t quite what many of her clients wanted, so the Klaw influence was channeled into another side of her work that we’ll come to later on, and she began to concentrate on straight pin-up photography, often featuring couples. And when couples do retro pin-up, the results are often to our particular taste!

Let’s begin with a lady whose real name is Lila Link, but who works under a name that may be not only professional but prophetic: Scarlet Bottum:

Here she is with her real-life husband, Jason Link:

And here he is giving Scarlet Bottum … a scarlet bottom:

The shoot was on November 21, 2011, and in case you’re wondering, she’s not a real redhead!

Now meet Eileen Allure, also known as Leena Mynx:

We’ve encountered her already, in fact: she’s the kneeling maid in the Klaw-styled photo we looked at first. Now here she is in a ’50s-style diner in a sequence shot at Port Huron on March 26, 2012:

She seems to have attracted a little attention from Nick:

And now she finds out that, as she put it later, ‘Nick has a good authoritative hand’:

As a bonus, the Decadence Dolls promo video offers a glimpse behind the scenes showing that last one being set up:

That was a shoot with professional models for issue 6 of Delicious Dolls Magazine

… but Autumn also works with non-professional clients who simply want cute retro pictures of themselves, like Tom and Melissa here.

They seem to have enjoyed that kitchen spanking so much that they had another one taken in more intimate setting:

Then there’s this couple, who had themselves photographed for Christmas 2014 in terrific style:

Also for that Christmas, Autumn arranged a special shoot on November 30 for four naughty girls who didn’t deserve a visit from Santa Claus. Instead, they got to meet… a real live Krampus!

Recognize the girl in the green top? She’s none other than Autumn herself! Kelly Swanson held the camera for her… and her reward was to be the girl in the second photo!

Now, I said earlier that Autumn used the Klaw influence elsewhere in her work. One thing you may have noticed in this series is that there seems to be a relationship between pin-up photography and burlesque performance. This is another string to Autumn’s bow: she runs the Michigan burlesque show Tease-a-Gogo, which sometimes features a bit of onstage spanking action.

In that second one, the blonde spanker was Sadie Sparkles, who is also a member of the Klaw Mark Kittens, a burlesque catfight/wrestling troupe that Autumn directs. And, yes, the ‘Klaw’ in their name is entirely to the point. Here’s one of their publicity photos, shot by Autumn:

You may not recognize the girl being spanked, but in fact it’s Sadie Sparkles again, minus her blonde wig. She’s across the lap of Patsy Pearl, who also got to wallop her bottom in their 2011 show:

But in catfights, there’s always a risk of turnabout. The Kittens’ 2012 show featured a proper OTK spanking on black panties, and this time it was Patsy who couldn’t sit down afterwards, thanks to the tender ministrations of Va Va Valentine. Here’s the scene in two different performances:

Here are the Kittens sending holiday greetings to their fans:

Did you recognize the set? It’s the same room where Autumn shot that Christmas spanking couple we were admiring earlier.

Sadie Sparkles got a Santa spanking in the Kittens’ 2014 Christmas show:

She wasn’t the only naughty girl in the show:

And there were a couple of non-Santa spankings, too:

Then there was Valentine’s Day 2015:

And the spankings just go on and on…
