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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
