Llewellyn

I couldn’t take it anymore…the nagging, the begging, the threats…..it just became too much.  Elvera wanted her belly photographed…period. She demanded action…no more excuses. So today I did it….I shot my wife….boudoir style. For those of you that don’t know what boudoir means, check it’s Wikipedia explanation here. . No…Elvera is not bloated, she is...
