Fearless doesn’t even begin to describe how confident this woman is! She reached out to me about doing a non-bridal, bridal boudoir session as a gift for her future partner and I was all about it. She came to my studio space here in Raleigh NC and let loose! I mean, I should have known that we were in for a great time when she listed her piercings as some of her accessories for her session. When all was said and done, her positivity around her body and who she is as a boss, rubbed off on Kassy (Hair and Makeup) and I. You, literally, could tell no woman in this space nothing that day, haha. This is no ordinary boudoir session, this is a woman who know’s who the hell she is and what the hell she wants. SHE IS GOALS AF. All I have to say about this session is, move over, because a bad bitch is coming through! #YESQUEENRead More

You can’t fake confidence like this… you just can’t. This beautiful woman reached out about doing an anniversary session here in my Raleigh NC boudoir studio. She mentioned bringing in some of her favorite wedding day accessories but not making it the main theme and I was all the way here for it. She brought one of her hubby’s shirts and I always say, shirts and sporting tops are some of the hardest things to make sexy and it was like she said “bet” and then showed me how it was done! There isn’t one thing about this session that doesn’t make me scream “YES GIRL! YESSSSS!”. The blue heels, the corset, the garter belt, YES GIRL YES! I am so fortunate that she chose me to capture her and all of her sexy!

This girl right here! YAS! She reached out to me about doing a boudoir session just because and I was all the way here for it. Sometimes, I think clients feel like they have to have an excuse to do a boudoir session and that’s simply not the case. Sometimes, you love your body exactly the way it is and you want to document it in it’s perfect state of perfection. Sometimes, you need reassurance about your body so you can love it exactly the way that it is and seeing it through someone else’s lens is the perfect way to do that! No need to have a wedding, birthday, or anniversary, the occasion can just be because you’re you!Read More

Her maternity boudoir session was just a complete blast full of florals, lace, and baby bump perfection!

We all say it, “New Year, New Me!” Well as I look back over my personal life, my business, and my work I can truly say that I have grown but I am pretty much the same old me and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. At my core, I am still the person that I have always been. I enjoy laughing and having a good time. An artist, true and true, even to a fault. Emotional and sensitive, yet cold and abrasive at times. I care about others even to the detriment of myself and my own wellbeing sometimes and even in those moments I would still say that it was worth it. As it feels I am opening a new chapter in my life, with a few major changes and some serious life lessons learned, I wanted to celebrate me in the only way I would tell anyone else to celebrate, with a bad ass boudoir session! That’s right, I did one too and it wont be the last! You can expect one every year from here on out, because as difficult as it is to look at your own flaws in the editing room, I feel incredibly proud of myself and these portraits!Read More
If you would have told me 3 years ago that I would be where I am today—guest blogging about a super-sexy boudoir photoshoot that rocked my world for the better— I think I would have laughed you out of the room.
See, three years ago I was a staunchly faithful, Mormon woman living in the heart of Utah—a place the locals call, “Happy Valley”. For anyone unfamiliar with Mormonism, it’s a shortened term for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or LDS Church.
When most people think of Mormonism, they think of TV shows about polygamy, like “Big Love,” “Sister Wives,” or “Three Wives, One Husband”. Polygamy is practiced in sects that branched off of the original Mormon Church, but luckily for me it wasn’t practiced in the “mainstream Mormon” world I grew up in.Read More
If you have followed my work for any extended length of time, you have probably seen the above image a million times. This was from my second boudoir session and it was the moment that I realized that I wanted boudoir to be my passion! I realized in this image that I was capable and could help women realize their beauty by letting them see themselves the way that I saw them. I coined the phrase “see yourself through someone else’s lens” because that is truly what most of us ladies deal with, only seeing ourselves from our point of view and all of the negative thoughts that we have created come right along with that. I realized that by shooting these boudoir session, I could give other women new perspective on themselves, fight against all of the terrible things that we think about ourselves and also give women new found confidence in the sweet support and comments from those who follow my work. If it weren’t for this session, I am not sure that I would be doing boudoir photography, so thank you to Caroline for trusting me with something that would help build the way to such an amazing career (that is just getting started!)Read More
