Mother Morpho | Wisconsin Boudoir

I’ve had the Mother Morpho concept floating around in my head for awhile now. To say it came to me in a dream sounds corny, but it’s 100% true, at least the name for the shoot did. And this shoot almost happened with someone else a year prior but it was pouring rain and we were downtown St.Paul and it just was not meant to be. So I put it on the back burner and …

You Are Safe With Me | Wisconsin Boudoir

I want to talk about how important it is to me that my clients feel safe when we are working together. Boudoir, for the most part, is a deeply personal experience. You are baring your soul and your body and tapping into parts of yourself that you probably rarely let see the light. It’s a little uncomfortable but it should be because you’re growing.  All of these things are wonderful and powerful and can sometimes …

Feel All The Feels- Part 2 | NYC Boudoir

If you haven’t read Part 1 of Feel All The Feels then you’re missing out (on both the message AND the images) so do yourself a favor and getonitdammit! In the first blog post I talked extensively about how being in touch with and honoring your feelings can help you lead a better life.  And let me tell you I’ve been doing a lot of that in the New Year. And it’s fucking hard. It’s …

Vulnerability is the Birthplace of Connection | Grand Rapids Boudoir

I want to talk about vulnerability for a minute. Specifically how dang important it is.  Vulnerability is the gateway to a more fulfilling life. Trust me, I know. I’ve been working on different pathways to better know myself and vulnerability is one of the most effective ways to suck the dang marrow out of life. So, I’ve been experimenting with this whole ‘allow yourself to be vulnerable and open to alllll the feelings and experiences …

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 …

Skyclad | Wisconsin Boudoir

I always feel the most electric type of alive when I’m communing with the earth.  There’s always such a deep sense of welcoming home when my body and soul are in their most natural state. All of my insecurities melt away and I’m so utterly consumed by the breeze on my neck and the grass slipping through the space in between my toes to even care that I’m twenty pounds overweight and my breasts aren’t …

Hay Isn’t Just For Horses! | Wisconsin Boudoir

Excuse the pun-filled title! You know I had to do it.  I’ve been wanting to do a barn-themed shoot for quite awhile now. I’m from Wisconsin and half of the people I grew up with either lived on a farm or knew someone that did.  There’s something so beautiful to me about barns…the smell of the hay, the well-worn wood, the way the sun glints in through the cracks. I just love it, and I …

‘Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum’ | Minneapolis Boudoir

To me boudoir isn’t really a gender thing, it’s a human being thing. We are all just trying our hardest on this here planet to ‘Nolite te bastardes carborundorum’ and all that jazz and it’s so easy to forget who we are when the whole world is telling you who you should be.  I don’t really care what your gender is or your sexual identity is or your ethnicity is. I don’t care what you …

I Can’t Make You Love Yourself | Wisconsin Boudoir

I don’t know how to make you love yourself.  I don’t know how to undo years of people telling you how you should act, how you should look, and how you should be.  The truth is that I don’t think accepting yourself is something that you can just ‘do.’ It doesn’t come easily and you have to work at it every. damn. day.  It’s really fucking hard when Instagram is filled with tanned, toned bodies …

I Will Fly On Scorched Wings | Wisconsin Boudoir

Kayla and I are Soul Sisters, a bond that runs deeper than blood or distance or time. I think we both knew, from our very first meeting back in middle school that there was something special between us. A bond that is one step past friendship, a baser vibration that could not be ignored.  And so we became inseparable for a beautiful period of time. Whenever I think back on it I am overwhelmed with memories- …

The Body Says What Words Cannot | Wisconsin Boudoir

Half of my life has revolved around dance. I was one of those kids who started taking lessons but didn’t quit when the fun stopped and the real training began. My parents probably spent a good chunk of their earnings on all of the classes and costumes and traveling it took to feed my passion, sacrificing so I could go to competitions or get new shoes. I thrived on the rules of ballet and the …
