Give the gift of yourself! | Lacrosse Boudoir

EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!  I’m so excited to finally be able to share these images that I’ve been keeping under wraps for an entire YEAR! I’m not a patient person (AT ALL) but sometimes I have to be, especially when the images are going into an album for one very lucky husband-to-be. They are now living in wedded bliss and I can spill allllll the photo beans everywhere for you to see!  First off, I have to thank …

Sundays Should Be Spent in Bed! | Minneapolis Boudoir

I rarely get a Sunday off, it’s just the way it is right now. I’m not complaining because sometimes you just have to do the things you need to do now in order to get to the place that you want to be in the future. For the people who work the daily grind the weekend is something of a countdown, a finish line, a punctuation to end the week. I fully believe that you …

Badass Biker Jacket | Minneapolis Boudoir

There was a photo on the wall at my grandparent’s house that always caught my eye growing up. It was a picture of my grandma wearing a motorcycle jacket all glammed up with the big hair and the bad-ass come hither look that stopped me in my tracks every time I saw it. It’s stayed with me all this time, that photo. And so I decided to try my hand at the motorcycle jacket photo …

Experimenting with Tulle | Minneapolis Boudoir Photographer

Experimentation helps us grow as photographers (and people!) and keeps us from getting stuck in a rut. Clients love it too. They get to be a part of …

My Mother is Beautiful | Wisconsin Boudoir Photographer

My mother is what most would call unassuming. I don’t mean that in a bad way, I just mean that she’s a normal lady doing the normal things that moms do. She doesn’t get her nails done, she only dresses up for ‘occasions’ although she always looks nice, and she doesn’t go to any big cities unless she’s visiting me or on a vacation. She is, however, an amazing woman. She is strong, kind, cooks …

Letting Go in the Shower | Minneapolis Boudoir Photographer

WARNING: NSFW (Because boobs and butts are distracting and some people get offended by the human form.)  In order for boudoir to ‘work’ and for you to get those amazing images that really take your breath away you need to be able to LET GO. It’s something that is very hard for a lot of people but if they do, just a little bit, for a little while….we get pure magic! That’s what I got …

A Perfect Shade of Grey | Wisconsin Boudoir Studio

I love catching women in the act of ‘gazing.’ For a moment I see something, if only a tiny glimpse, of what they look like when they aren’t posing and they aren’t so caught up in the act of being ‘on’ for the camera. These moments are what bring these women to life. Well, that and a little giggling! These images were taken at the W Foshay in Minneapolis, MN. The window ledge was probably …
