i can't wait to connect

It's always an honor to be considered to capture you in an intimate & timeless way. I don't take it lightly and my main priority is to make you feel comfortable and confident with me.

I can only accept a limited number of boudoir sessions per month and year to give my wedding & boudoir clients the best quality I can give.

Please note: if you haven't heard from me in 48 hours, please check your spam folder or send me an email directly at 

Thank you so much for your message! My business hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 AM - 5 PM. I look forward to responding within 48 business hours!


I totally get it, I'm not natural in front of the camera. But I'll guide you through every pose, tell you where to put your hands and where to look at. It's a different kind of posing but I'm here to help you every step of the way.

06. i'm not a model, i don't know how to pose! is boudoir for me?

You get to see your images the same day! After your session and you select your favorites for your products, you'll receive your products in the mail in 4-6 weeks depending on the item. This is why I recommend scheduling your session 3 months before your wedding so we have plenty of time in case of shipping delays! ;)

05. how long until i get my photos?

The 60 minute boudoir session has time for 2 outfits. I suggest bringing 3-5 outfits with you so you have options in case you change your mind on anything the day of! And if we're making this bridal boudoir, I definitely 10000% recommend bringing in your veil, garter and wedding shoes! It'll be magical, I promise.

04. how many outfits do i get & do i need to supply them?

Yes! This is the most common way my clients make their boudoir session more affordable, is by paying over time. And there's some pretty amazing bonuses for using the payment plan.

03. can i take advantage of a payment plan?

There is a minimum investment of $1900. Most boudoir clients spend $2500-4000 on their experience. Our in house payment plans make this experience more affordable!

02. is there a minimum amount i have to spend?

Yes! You will have your hair and makeup done professionally by one of my incredibly talented makeup artists so you feel your absolute best. This is included in the session fee.

01. is hair & makeup included in the session?
