beauty

Body Positive...because we are all beautiful.

I have wanted to do a shoot like this for a good while now. When I started in photography 8 years ago, I started with the traditional family, weddings, kids, etc., and then slowly got into boudoir photography. I found boudoir and glamour photography to be something that I could truly see in a customers eyes when they received their images because of how the images made them FEEL. I feel like images should move you as the customer. Being able to make a woman feel and see her beauty in a way she never had before was just empowering, but especially empowering to them. 

In a world and society and culture where everyone expects women to look a certain way, and even in more recent months and years with bullying, and sexual harassment, and body shaming that has gone on; I felt I need to do a shoot like this. I hope these images speak to you and move you. 

These 3 beautiful and strong women, opened themselves up and volunteered to put themselves out there for these images. They had never met before, but in the process of writing these words on each other and speaking, WE ALL got a little emotional. They were moved by the project and what it meant to them individually and as a brand new group of friends. I hope this experience will be something they remember for a lifetime, and my bigger hope is that it moved them, and women all over that see these images, to OWN their beauty like they never have before. 

Thanks for looking, and PLEASE feel free to share the link to these images on all your social media. Let's make these images go viral.

Boudoir...with a twist!

So I wanted to do a slight twist on traditional boudoir. I of course did some of the more traditional shots, but then I incorporated some vape, and some colored lighting. Something I haven't really seen done with boudoir images. I'm pretty freaking pleased with them. Of course they wouldn't have been possible without my beautiful and wonderful model...Kendall! She kills it every single time!! Thanks and enjoy!
