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 …

Sometimes You Just Need To Go Through Some Shit…| Wisconsin Boudoir

Amanda is a special person to me. Over the years we’ve bonded through our mutual love of lingerie and she’s probably just as obsessed with vintage clothes as I am, always scoping out the best deals in the coolest places. I’ve photographed her a few times but never really feel like I truly capture her raw essence. It remains elusive but someday I’ll get it! Either way, the images always turn out gorgeous so I …

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 …

Unpredictable Magic | Indianapolis Boudoir

Photo shoots in nature are my absolute favorite…but I’ve said that many times before. I keep trying to think of why exactly I love them so much (besides the fact that I freaking LOVE nature) and I finally know why-  Everything is up to chance. The scenery changes not only by the day- things blooming and fading- but also by the minute-one moment full sun glare and the next dappled shadows.  I have to be in …

Lingerie Lovers Unite! | Nashville Boudoir

I used to think that I was a pervert because I loved lingerie so much. I didn’t really think that liking lingerie was sinful in itself but having a straight-up love affair with corsets and panties and balconette bras seemed somehow…wrong. No one else I knew gave a shit about ‘underthings’ past the point of going to the Victoria’s Secret at the mall a few times a year to buy underwear on sale with the word PINK …

Light and Dark | Nashville Boudoir

We all contain multitudes, we are made up of light, dark, and 50 shades of gray.  What a wonderous thing that is, this multifaceted life! UNLESS…you want to book a boudoir shoot with me and have to decide between my dreamy, airy work AND my sultry, moody stuff. OMG how do you EVEN CHOOSE?! Well, NEWSFLASH, you don’t have to decide! Do them BOTH!  The style and type of shoot you do, or the VIBE …

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 …
