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 …

Find Your Fire | Wisconsin Boudoir | Duende Boudoir

I talk a lot about how a boudoir session isn’t just a boudoir session if it’s done right. How it can really change you if you open up to the experience and let yourself be vulnerable for me. I talk a lot of what might seem like ‘fluff’ to some people. But the truth is that it’s just that…true.  This is Holly. And these are her words.  “All people have their story, whether it’s full …

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 …

Model Misconceptions | Nashville Boudoir

There are a lot of misconceptions about models. The way they look, their IQ level, and the ease of their job are constantly being dragged through the mud by people who simply don’t know any better. Yes, models are beautiful (that’s #1 priority of their job!) but most are extremely smart, a lot of them using the money they make to put themselves through school, and their job is anything but easy. You’d know if …

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 …

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 …
