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 …

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 …

Roccoco in the woods | Wisconsin Boudoir

When I first picked up a camera 4 years ago it was to take all of the ideas that were hogging space in my head and bring them into the world. I grew up on the (small) stage and both my grandmother and mother were part-time seamstresses so my head has been filled with pouf dresses and ballerinas and faeries and glitter for as long as I can remember. As I grew older I also …

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 …

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 …

Shine On | Wisconsin Outdoor Boudoir

This girl right here is my oldest friend. We met on the first day of kindergarten and never looked back. Samantha and I have hunted ghosts together, belted out Spice Girls songs at the top of our lungs, and had lots of sleepover talks about cute boys.  Well, life keeps on going and before I knew it this girl was a married woman (to her high school sweet heart!) and had a beautiful girl of …
