The women who stand before me are true works of art. The simplicity from this session just blew me away.
A is a florist who lives in a different state. She and I have been following each other on Instagram for years. We had talked here and there, but never met in person. She messaged me almost a year ago, letting me know she was going to be in my area and was finally ready to set up a boudoir session. She told me that she had been waiting because I was the one that HAD to photograph her (talk about an honor). We did the session in an AirBnB that she and her husband were staying in to attend a friend’s wedding. She made sure to find one that was neutral with some great natural light. The best light was in the living room, so I ended up moving the couch and some tables out of the way. Like I said in my previous post, I’ll move mountains to get my clients the best photographs.

These two have such a special bond and we wanted to capture it in a unique way. This wasn’t a bachelorette boudoir party, this wasn’t to put on sexy lingerie for their partners, this was to slow down and be in intimate moments with each other and themselves. There really is a special bond between women and I hope I captured a little piece of that. Read More
When Caroline, of Moonstruck Florals, reached out to me about doing a styled boudoir session in her studio, it was a definite “YES” from me. I wanted Caroline to have full control of the aesthetic of this shoot. This was my first boudoir styled shoot and I wanted to capture what someone else created. It’s so incredible to work with other creatives and not interrupt their process. My voice was going to be in the photography aspect, I wanted Caroline’s voice to really shine in the rest of the shoot. Read More
I was just talking to another photographer about why we prefer, and pretty much insist, on photographing in our client’s homes. We were discussing how it forces you out of your comfort zone. You have no idea how light will fall and at what time. You don’t know which space will be your favorite or create a reaction in your veins. Having a studio space has it’s own pros, but it can start to become repetitive. The last thing I want is for the work that I’m creating for these women to become second nature. Read More
I’ve been wanting to tell my story for a while, but it has been difficult to find the words that are my own without telling someone’s else’s story. Why boudoir has become such an important part of my life. Keep in mind, this is my story and in no way tells the other side. Read More
