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 What Makes You Different | Wisconsin Boudoir

I have known Samantha ever since that first day in kindergarten when we looked at one another and just decided to be friends. She always seemed so strong and confident to me so it was a shock to read her story. I never knew that she struggled back then, and that’s just it- we ALL struggle with body image issues, some of us are just better at hiding it. The stories women are telling me …

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 …

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 …

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 …
