A Bit About Me...
I didn't start as a boudoir photographer, but in 2017 I fell in love with it. I've had a camera in my hands for more than 20 years. I've always loved shooting, but I was on the verge of burning out. I had lost my passion for doing what I loved. I'd been working with families, kids, newborns, and whatever came my way. Doing whatever it took to pay the bills, but I wasn't happy. That all changed the day of my first boudoir shoot.
That morning as I prepared the studio, I was completely unaware that my life was about to change. We began the session, and I watched my client transform from an exhausted woman lacking confidence to a powerful phoenix. As I showed her the images from the back of the camera, her shoulders began to pull back, her eyes lit up, and she uttered the words "that can't be me." I was hooked. I never knew a photoshoot could be so life-changing.
The phrases "that can't be me," "I never knew I could look like that," and "you have no idea what this has done for me" are phrases I hear every single shoot, and it NEVER gets old. I've even had clients cry as they view their images. These tears stem from us letting our insecurities rule how we see ourselves. We listen to what society says is beautiful, and if we don't fit that description, we convince ourselves that we aren't beautiful or worthy.
Well, honey, I'm here to tell you that you ARE beautiful, you ARE worthy, and you AARE enough.
Watching these transformations from "feeling frumpy" to strutting out of my studio saying "I'm FUCKING HOTT" (yes, that actually happened) is what I live for. Well, that and my wonderful husband of 13 years and our 3 amazing kids.
As far as my resume goes...
I've been specializing in boudoir photography for the last 4 years. I've trained in Chicago with a Nikon ambassador and international boudoir photographer. I'm currently working with my mentor's mentor. They are both badass women and phenomenal international photographers. I challenge myself every day to be a better photographer. I'm constantly updating the studio and my gear to stay on top of my game. I will never stop pushing myself.
