Boudoir, when I say the word my mind goes to something like a movie. It’s a “classic” word. I have always loved pin-up style photography and all photos of Marilyn Monroe. It reminds me of Hollywood glam and some of the most beautiful women in the world. That being said, I never thought I would […]

The best gift I could give myself was a boudoir shoot! For the past 16 years, I’ve struggled with not taking the baby fat off. Not spending the time or energy to present my best self. Not having the time or energy to be able to get myself together, and aging faster than I thought. […]

What’s the one thing that nearly stopped you from doing a session? Everyday life in general. Finding a day to take off work, finding a babysitter, not knowing if I was “wasting money” cause you know, who has  or wants to spend money on themselves when they have babies, thinking I’d be judged for taking […]

I’ve always wanted to do boudoir photos, but never felt confident enough to do them.  When I signed up, I had just had my second child three months before. I was still so tired all the time and really feeling down about myself and not happy with my body, even though this bad ass body […]
