I've photographed women - with an emphasis on high school juniors and seniors - for over a decade now. One of my favorite things is watching my clients reaction to their photos. Seeing themselves as WE ALL see them, but almost for the first time. A single glance at the back of the camera during a shoot...and the smile that comes after. That will never get old.
Through conversations and testimonials, parents - often mothers - of my clients have told me time and time again how valuable the shoot was. How it made their daughter feel beautiful in her own skin. Often they tell me privately how much they wish they could go back and do their senior portraits all over again, just so they could experience that feeling.
But why not embrace the NOW. I want to turn the back of my camera towards as many women as possible so they can see how beautiful they are. Today. In this body.
As a professional photographer, I have had the privilege of reflecting the beauty of my clients’ lives. I am incredibly blessed that they invite me into their lives to capture unforgettable moments of celebration and love. My work with families has included every aspect of life from engagement and weddings to pregnancy and newborns, from senior photos to family reunions. A cornerstone of my work is the long-term relationship that I build with my clients. I have been told that my enthusiasm and passion for what I do is contagious and makes the shoots fun with results that truly reflect each person.
A natural progression to my work with families was opening my lens to boudoir photography. My goal is to provide a relaxed, fun environment that allows women to embrace their own beauty. Beauty is not defined by commercial standards; instead, it is individualized to highlight each person’s unique sensuality. My clients trust me to work with them and capture. As a breast cancer survivor, I have learned to accept and love my body with all of my “perfect imperfections” (John Legend). One of my favorite boudoir client quotes after seeing her photos, “I never thought that I was pretty, but looking at these pictures, I can see my own beauty.”
