Boudoir: Do it for YOU

You don’t need a special occasion or reason to book a photography session with me, just like you don’t need a reason to wear sexy lingerie when you’re alone in your house on a Tuesday night. Just do it! Why? Because it’s nice to feel beautiful and sexy and feminine, dammit! 

Many of my clients contact me initially because they’d like to surprise their fiancé with a sexy little boudoir album before their wedding day, or gift their spouse a gorgeous anniversary present to spice things up a bit (ooh la la). Boudoir photos can be a super sexy and unexpected gift.  But let’s be real ladies – the experience is for you, and you deserve it.

As women, we frequently struggle with self-love, and we put everyone else’s needs and happiness before our own. We look in the mirror and don’t always love what we see because we wish we were 5 pounds lighter, or focus on that little wrinkle that wasn’t there a year ago. We find every excuse to not celebrate the amazing badass women we are. 

I understand how easy it is to not love yourself. I went through five years of lousy times, I call them the terrible twenties. Those years included a lot of crap. To give you a short but dramatic recap… divorce, learning to date as an adult, being run over by an actual car, a touch of PTSD… Honey, I was done with my twenties. I felt a mega lack of self-confidence during those times. And sometimes, even though I’m in a pretty great place now (hello 30’s) – those memories still get the best of me.  

We all need a giant reminder of how f-ing great we are from time to time. To embrace the bodies we live in right now, and to love ourselves for everything we’ve been through. Even if we’re not at our “goal weight,” or if we haven’t learned to appreciate our literal or metaphorical scars just yet. A boudoir or beauty session will change the way you see yourself. THAT is why I do what I do. Because I believe every woman deserves to see a gorgeous, raw portrait of herself and feel proud of whatever season of life she is in. I want to help you celebrate your unique femininity and create stunning images of you that will last a lifetime.
