do you offer boudoir sessions?

yes! absolutely! i love working with wonderful women to create amazing images that celebrate them and their bodies - just as they are! i want you to know your shoot with me is a safe, secure space to celebrate yourself and feel beautiful. that is what this photoshoot should be most about!

i don't market boudoir sessions separately from my regular wedding coverage (except for twice a year - before christmas and valentine's day, when i have mini boudoir session days!)

because so many of my clients are just regular women who just want something special for themselves and their man, i don't post images online. without getting into the nitty gritty, it's just safer for me and for you. however, i do have sample albums in the studio you are welcome to come take a peak!

the experience

i am dedicated to giving my clients a thoughtful, fun, pampering and empowering boudoir experience! i believe our photo shoot is about so much more than gorgeous, or sexy images. it's about going outside your comfort zone, celebrating the woman that you are, playing out a fantasy you've always dreamed of, and discovering the power and beauty that lies within you.

i have seen the transformational power of glamour and boudoir in the real women I work with. every woman starts off a little shy and warning me that they "aren't a model" and walks out feeling as fierce as tyra banks!

these special photo sessions with me are not a shoot and burn type of scenario. i get to know you very well in the weeks leading up to our session. i get to know what makes you tick, what you are hoping to get from the shoot and what your biggest fantasies are! we follow each other on pinterest, chat on the phone, and i even give you a little swag bag too! on the day of, we will feel like old friends and have a ton of fun, essentially playing dress up. about 7-10 days after the shoot, you will come back to the studio and we will view & select your images together! its pretty much a party!

where can we do the boudoir session?

in studio
we have a wonderful studio space with both natural light and our own lighting setups. we have lots of textures, sheer curtains and other elements to make your session fun and get a lot of great looks. we also have a bed that we use during sessions for a more realisitc setting.

at home
on some occasions we travel to our clients' homes. some people want that personal touch. it does take a bit of extra time for us to scope things out and set up the appropriate lighting, however, it's always exciting to do a session somewhere new! clients are often more comfortable in their own home.

cushy local hotel
we also can pick from some amazing hotels we've worked with in the past. having your session in a hotel room is a wonderful treat. there is a bit of an additional charge, however, perhaps you can surprise your man with a night out on the town and then crash there afterwards!
