Bio: I’ve struggled a lot with my self-image most of my life, and it wasn’t until my mid-20s when I finally embraced how I was created and celebrated it. Every little inch of me is beautiful because God deemed it so. (Now when I’m trying to fit into my last summer’s jeans, I may forget that for a moment… but hey, I’m only human! But ultimately, we know what’s true… we just have to be reminded of it every so often.
Personally, boudoir was an outside-of-my-box experience. When I decided to have them done for my husband’s wedding gift, it was a whoa moment in my life. I wouldn’t have done it if not for my best friend who encouraged me to get over my nervousness and go for it. Because after all, there was no other better gift I could give my husband-to-be. However with that other purpose in mind, I did it for me. I was getting married and needed to prove to myself that I was comfortable and proud of my body and to embrace my little chubs and stretch marks… because those made me beautiful despite what society preaches.
Describe your style: I’m a dual world kind of gal– I love film and I love digital. While I shoot digital for all sessions, my style mimics a fine art film quality. I’ve been told by others that they love that I “let my clients breathe” in my compositions and that I help make personalities shine in the photos.
What do you love about boudoir? Boudoir transforms a woman. Even moreso today, a woman needs to know her worth. She needs to know her worth is not how she looks, what she wears, or the scars she’s endured through life. Her worth is the statement of her heart. But before the heart can prove itself, we have to see it. We closely connect the two and identify.
Do you see how worthy you are? Do you see why your spouse loves you and cherishes you? Do see your beauty?
It’s not easy. But if you have an ounce of courage, I hope to help women from all walks of life gain oodles of confidence. I only show what’s already there.
And this is why I absolutely love boudoir. To help someone see their beauty in new ways is so fulfilling. When a woman tells me that I made her feel beautiful, it’s so humbling because my little ole camera helped show what was already there. Sure, we spruced things up a little, but I can take no full credit.
Persuasion is not just about looking sexy for someone; it’s about shedding those fears of “not good enough” and putting on “beautifully confident.”

What’s something fun we should know about you? I’m pretty sure I was born 200 years late and would have wiggled my way into being best friends with Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters. I’m also a proud cat mom of two: Pickles Barrington and Marmalade O’Hoolihan.
