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.

I truly believe she speaks for so many women… Read More

Valerie works with such incredibly talented photographers from all over the world. It’s been my dream to photograph a wedding alongside her, but I’m pretty sure photographing her will do for now.

When women contact me about the possibility of a boudoir session, I want to get to the "why".
Why now? Why have you come to this decision? Why is this important to you?
If she is doing it strictly for someone else then I tell her that we aren't going to be a good fit. The way that I photograph, the way that I approach every session, is for her. I don’t care what her partner thinks is sexy. I don’t care what magazines have told her her entire life. This is not for anyone but her.
She is the reason I do this… Read More
