We are getting married in September on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. I wanted to give my fiancee a fun wedding gift before our big adventure!

For the last several years I’ve been looking into boudoir shoots, but not to the point of actually reaching out to a photographer. I have felt like I would not look like the beautiful women I’ve seen in those types of photographs.  But my wedding is approaching this year so I decided to do it […]

Every year, I struggle with special occasion gift-giving for my husband. I know so little about his hobbies, it’s hard for me to figure out what would make a great gift for him, and he usually beats me to every idea I have—or worse, he guesses what it is! Surprise gift-giving is a ‘Big Deal’ […]

I have been looking at and dreaming about being a girl in one of the boudoir shoots for the last several years. Longer really. I’ve always loved how strong the pin up girls always seemed to be in the old photos from the 20s and 30s. I loved how they showed their sexuality, but also […]

I had heard of these “boudoir” photo shoots a few years ago and it instantly became a bucket list item for me. This last year, I thought it would a perfect “1st married Christmas” gift for my husband! I’m a curvy girl and as I tell everyone, “these hips don’t lie!” Today’s world is harsh […]

With my husband overseas again, I considered a boudoir shoot as a gift to him. But I cringed about the possibility at the same time. What would I wear?  I’m not a small woman so trying on items in the store isn’t always a possibility. I’ve gained some perspective about what beauty is over the […]
