What I Believe
I believe that every woman should have a portrait of herself that she loves, that gives her confidence, that makes her hold her head up a little higher...
YOU ARE ENOUGH. The media and everything in modern society tells women that they aren't enough, There is nothing I love more than showing women that they ARE enough and how beautiful they are, just as they are, at every stage in their life. Boudoir photography has proven itself over and over again to be a form of therapy for my clients. I am honored to photograph each and every one of them and give them the perspective to see themselves in a new way.
Do it for YOURSELF! Most clients are celebrating their new start after the end of a relationship or divorce, commemorating a milestone birthday, anniversary or health journey, recovery, creating a wedding day-of gift, or (my favorite) just doing it for themselves!
How I Got Started
In 2011 I was living in Las Vegas, working for Zappos.com and doing a lot of image editing for their websites. After spending so much time editing other people's images, I decided that I wanted to pickup a camera myself. It was a hobby at that time, but I grew to love creating my own images! I would photograph whatever presented itself, my pets, my friends, etc.
My decision to specialize in boudoir photography came in 2013 after we moved to Charleston, SC. After moving here I photographed a friend in the boudoir style as a gift to her soon-to-be husband. The transformation that I witnessed from that session and the beauty and confidence that my friend found from it, was the start of my boudoir obsession!
I decided to exclusively photograph boudoir. (No weddings or family sessions to distract me!)
I have photographed hundreds of women, across 4 countries, size 0-22, from age 19- 62!
I have put all of my time and effort into learning everything I can about photographing the female form in the boudoir style as well as curating an amazing experience for each of my clients. I work with an incredible hair and makeup artist (Hey Monica!) who works with you to craft the hair and makeup look that you are wanting for your session.

I also have a wicked case of wanderlust and am always planning my next adventure - Italy is my favorite so far!
