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 …

Embrace Your Weird | Wisconsin Boudoir

From the very beginning when I first picked up a camera Rachel was down to pose for me, no matter what the concept. I would throw her in pouf dresses and mohawks and even once, with the help of my entire family, I suspended her in a cobweb of ropes from a few trees. She’s always trusted my vision and never hesitated to help make the pictures in my head a reality.  I fondly call …

I Needed You Ten Years Ago | Nashville Boudoir

If you actually read my blog regularly and not just hang around for the pretty pictures you will have gotten the hint that I have had a difficult time ‘accepting’ my body over the years. It’s still an uphill battle, but at least it’s no longer a full-blown apocalypse in the temple that houses my soul. And my work as a boudoir photographer has really helped me heal myself, and in turn heal others.  One …

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 …

Heartbreak Hotel | Memphis Boudoir

Getting over a break up is hard. I don’t have any recent experience, I’ve been with the same man for 12 years, but I still remember my last break up. It helped to shape me into who I am today. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right? When it happened I was a complete and total mess for a long time, and it took years for me to finally heal all of the little …

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 …
