I fell into boudoir photography by accident. I had a few of wedding clients ask if I could shoot a session for their groom-to-be, and the rest is history. I’ve been photographing people for 15 years, and adored how different this type of photography was from all other shoots I had done. It’s a little documentary, a little fashion, a little portraiture – boudoir’s unique niche inspires and challenges me every time I shoot it.
On a personal note, I am a wife, kitty momma, and book/coffee/tea lover. I fully own up to my Instagram obsession. I can’t cook to save my life, but that’s okay, because my idea of a perfect dinner is dining at a taco truck in Mexico (no cooking required!). I grew up in SoCal, so I hate Chicago winters. Meanwhile, I went to high school in Tennessee, so my favorite word is “y’all.” I have an education degree, and taught for three years, which means I have an arsenal of bad 6th grader jokes that I like to share with my clients (you’re welcome in advance!).
I like simple settings, because I want the focus to be on you, not the location.
I crave natural light and the soft feel it creates.
I aim for my images to be romantic, classy, and natural.
I purposely used the word intimates rather than boudoir, because boudoir implies photographing those clad in lingerie only. Meanwhile, I want to show an intimate, private side of my clients, regardless of what they were wearing. It’s about you, your story, and your beauty, not about the clothes. I like to say that I photograph beauty sessions that just happen to have a boudoir setting.
