Hating Yourself is Tiresome | Wisconsin Boudoir

Alicia, the amazing woman behind Buxom Boudoir, and I recently got together to do something that we do for other people all the time but don’t really do for ourselves…get neekid(ish) and have our own self-love experience! We each took turns posing and photographing out in nature one afternoon and I must say it was SO MUCH FUN! I can’t wait to do it again!  I asked Alicia to share a little bit about her …

A Part of Me | Omaha Boudoir

I think artists are always just trying to create things that will give their lives worth. Things that will be there long after they are gone. Things that live forever, or at least for as long as anyone cares to look at them.  I create for all of those reasons. I create because if I don’t I literally feel like life is pointless.  I also create because I have so many fucking feelings inside of …

To The Fullest Capacity | Nashville Boudoir

I talk about loving yourself and learning to love yourself A LOT. I practically shout, “YOU ARE A STUNNER!” to every woman who complains about their body anywhere within my earshot. But the truth is that it’s not that easy to see your beauty when you pick yourself apart all the time. You don’t just fucking wake up one day and feel at peace with the flesh cage that permits you to live this life. It …

Summer Goddess | Madison Boudoir

It’s hard to talk about summer Goddess sessions when the Midwest is about to be dumped on by 17 inches of snow. In April. Luckily, I’m currently in Nashville where it’s a nice 65 degrees! I took these images last summer and am just now getting around to posting them because life is busy and I suffer horribly from dotoomuchitis. But here they finally are!  Elan looks like a damn Goddess brought to life…because she …

Blue-Haired Girl | Memphis Boudoir

Sometimes I don’t have much to say in my blog posts. The writing gods aren’t blessing me right now and I don’t feel like regurgitating the same ‘love yourself’ mantra to you again because honestly I’m struggling right now personally.  Everything is sort of out of balance in a big way for me. I’m working on getting things back on track, sorting through my priorities, and changing some things. It gets old, this re-aligning. I …

All That Glitters Is Not Gold | Wisconsin Boudoir

It’s hard being a woman. Most of us are stuck in a state of MORE- a bigger, better, faster, stronger mentality that keeps us in a loop of perpetual unhappiness.  The constant need to PROVE and BE THE BEST (what even is that?) gets to all of us at one point or another, no matter how zen you claim to be. And the worst part? All of us are walking around unhappy wondering what the hell …

Vulnerability Part 2 | Grand Rapids Boudoir

I talked A LOT about vulnerability in Part 1 of this set so I’m not going to harp on it too much more except to say that it’s hella important, in life and during your photo shoot. So give it a read if you haven’t already. I’m here to connect with you, soul to soul, and capture a piece of it in images. I can’t do that as effectively if you don’t let your guard …

Kimono Flow | Wisconsin Boudoir

I LOVE styling boudoir sessions. LOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE it! I think I could honestly just quit taking photos forever (sad day) and still be able to carve a beautiful life out for myself with styling photo shoots/movies/whatever floats your boat. Lingerie and vintage clothing bring me THAT MUCH JOY. There’s something so incredibly satisfying about pulling different elements together to create a narrative. You become what you’re wearing. Everything makes sense and just clicks in. That’s important …

Pin Me Up | Madison Boudoir

I have a great love for pin-up, old Hollywood glamour, and film noir styles, probably because I have been collecting vintage for literally over half of my life (It all started with a pair of snake skin kitten heels…). Due to my reverence and respect for the past I am very wary about photographing the different genres (because those are 3 different genres, and even those three can be divided further into sub-categories) unless we …

F*CK That Guy…| Minneapolis Boudoir

I’m a Do More Photographer. It’s a group comprised of the best boudoir photographers in the world and I’m freaking proud to be one of them. We have a private group where we discuss ‘boudoir’ issues and help one another out and one concern that gets brought to the group way more frequently than it should is this- A client wants to book a shoot but their husband/fiance/lover says NO and cites various excuses such …

Mother Goddess | Wisconsin Boudoir

Okay I’m going to be very honest here and tell you that I don’t want kids. I don’t even really like kids. I’m that person that awkwardly holds little babies when I’m forced to but only because saying HELL NO is apparently considered rude to most people. I know, you’re probably thinking I’m a horrible human but WHATEVER KAREN not everyone has that maternal….thing. I mean I have it hardcore for my dog but people …

Darling Just Fucking Own It- Part 2 | Minneapolis Boudoir

Remember when I wrote about this awesome powerhouse of a woman? If not, hop on over HERE to catch up and check out the first set of images. In that first post I also talked about how I’m doing things a bit differently now and I’m following my heart more. Which really is a fancy-ass way of saying I’m gonna just get a bit more RAW and SEXY and make imagery that give you ALLLL …
