luxury boudoir


I am going to be real with you, I am a dork. I'm an introverted hermit stay at home mom and I am absolutely goofy from the moment we talk on the phone to the moment you walk into my studio. I guarantee you'll be laughing the moment you are in my studio. Between myself and my Hair and Makeup Artists, you are going to feel like you've found your people. Because let's face it, making friends as an adult is super hard. 

I'll throw on some 90's music and we will jam out and get to know each other while I put myself out there being my goofy self. If you think this is you and you can vibe with this, let's chat!

real women. real reviews.

Going into this, I was nervous, excited, terrified, anxious. I thought about canceling 100 times since I booked it. I kept telling myself that I'm not skinny, so why get half naked in front of others and let them take pictures of me. From the moment I got there, Vanessa and Alexis made me feel so comfortable, like we were all old friends. They hyped me up during the shoot and made me laugh. By the time I left, I felt amazing.
