THE S.a.


01. Don't be shy. say hello!

Boudoir is seriously one of the best things you can do for yourself, that this is literally the only hard part to this process.  But I gotta know who you are! Once you reach out, I’ll send over all the juicy details you’re dying to know and we'll set a date to do your photo-shoot. I'll send you everything you need to know plus a few other goodies so you can get super pumped for your session.

02. be pampered like a queen.

It's the day of the photo-shoot, and boy are you in for a special day. All of our boudoir sessions come with professional hair and makeup so a.) you'd don't have anything to worry about 'cause ain't nobody got time for that & b.) you deserve to be pampered like the queen you are. We'll also have a few light snacks and mimosas nearby to really treat yourself and enjoy the entire morning. Just come with one-day-old clean hair and a clean face, and we'll take care of the rest.

03. flaunt your beauty.

Now that you look drop-dead gorgeous, its time for your photo-shoot to start. If you're feeling nervous to start - I promise, that won't last long.  I'll be there directing and coaching, cheering you on. I'm committed to capturing you at your best, in ways you didn't even know could be your best! It's my promise to you that by the time we're done, you'll be thinking "why haven't I done this sooner!"






Though the fun needs to end, you still get to look forward to all you're crazy beautiful and sexy photos. It takes us 2-3 weeks to edit your entire gallery, and once we're done its time to choose how to show them off! We can create albums, fine-art canvases, or photo boxes to be able to love-on yourself as often as you'd like. Yes - boudoir can make great gifts to give to "someone" - but girl do this for yourself! You will leave feeling excited, empowered, breathtakingly-gorgeous, and a little like you could walk down the Victoria Secret runway better than any Angel could. You'll want to show off your photos to all your closest friends. You'll be thinking, "Damn, look how hot I am!"

Get ready to say "Daaaamnn!"


Boudoir sessions are completed in my home studio, and usually take anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 hours. With a beautiful black wall, silver trim on the bedding, we're able to add a new level of class and sophistication before we even take your first photo. 

Every woman is beautiful. But this is what makes me sad: I hear "this is so outside of my comfort zone, I could never do that" or "I'm just not happy with the way that I look." Toss that shit out the window. Those are excuses and fears. Ain't nobody got time for that! 

Boudoir sessions are my favorite to shoot, because I can see the moment when my clients find their confidence and feel... like really, truly feel beautiful, classy, and sexy! That's the secret behind great boudoir photos... that's what I'm here to capture.

Boudoir is for every woman - tall, short, curvy, dark, fair - everyone. If you are day-dreaming of "one day", just say "screw-it! Today IS that day." Do this for yourself NOW because often times "later" becomes "never" and then you'll be feeling regrets like "damn, I should have already been done did that." Beauty exists in every woman, and that's what I'm here to capture.

You've got some concerns, right?
