Yes, I'm talking to you! There is no time like the present to celebrate being you. You are beautiful just as you are, right here, right now. Age, gender, shape - none of it matters, as you are always worthy of commemoration, and I am honored that you are considering me to help in that celebration! My goal is to provide a comfortable, joyous, memorable, empowering session for you to look back on fondly, and some beautiful prints and albums to remember your session by or share with your partners. Whether we work in my studio space, which is constantly shifting from a fae garden to a burlesque stage to a classic bedroom, or at an amazing outdoor location, my goal is to make it an enjoyable adventure. As a queer femme, I don't conform to one style of sexy, and I won't limit you! I love collaborating with others to bring out what empowerment and sensuality means to them!
Sessions fees are $495 and include up to 10 (ten) retouched images of your choice. Additional photos and products are purchased separately. Products start at $250 and collections at $1200. The average client spends around $2500. I accept credit cards, cash, Paypal and Venmo, and provide pre-payment plans for people who wish to break their order down into bite-size pieces.

-Location, location, location! Whether this is my in-home studio space or an amazing on-site location (I have a list of options, let's select the best one for you!). If we are shooting on location, this includes up to 25 miles of travel, and some occasional promotions may apply for specialty locations.
-Pose coaching and guidance and a personal hype person through the entire process. (Don't let the nerves get you down! Not only do I have over 7 years experience as a photographer, I also have over a decade of experience as a model, which lends me a unique perspective to give you the best experience!)

-At least an hour to two of creative flow time!
-A post-session image reveal session to view and select the photos for your chosen package products.

First things first! After your initial message to me, we will start with a consultation via phone or video chat to get to know one another! I want to get to know you a bit, to find out what makes up who you are, so I can develop and create a shoot that fits your uniqueness that you will treasure forever! This also helps us see how our vibe is together and get the magic going, as well as the perfect time for you to ask any questions you may have before scheduling a session.
Once I’ve answered all your questions, we are ready to schedule! I will send an invoice over for the non-refundable session fee of $595 and the session contract. Once your 50% session deposit is received, your date is reserved, and if applicable, hair and makeup is booked! I will also send you prep guides, tips and tricks to help you feel ready and excited! During this time, we will also work on nailing down the theme/direction of your session to make sure we are both on the same page. Pinterest boards are encouraged as inspiration! This is also when if you need help with wardrobe – I’m happy to assist!
The day of your session, if booked, starts with hair and makeup! This pampering can take anywhere from 1 to 1.5 hours. While makeup and hair are being done, we will decide on outfits, and then the fun begins! The shooting part of the day can take between 1 to 2 hours, so overall, you’ll likely be spending about 3-4 hours with me. Before you leave for the day, we will schedule your reveal session – which, due to COVID, will most likely occur via video chat.
The reveal session! Before your reveal session, I will curate your photos – which means I will remove any duplicates or bad frames, blinks or blurs, to show you only the best images with some light color management and cropping. You’ll pick your favorites (number will vary depending upon your package/collection/items chosen), sign off on your chosen, and pay for any additional add-ons. Then it’s to work for me finalizing everything for print and delivery!
When it comes to retouching: I personally touch image! You are the star of the show and I want you to shine! I make sure you look hydrated and well-rested, and you are free of pesky blemishes, but I never change the way you look as a person. I am very up front in saying that I am a photographer, I am not a Photoshop Artist. Of course, if you’d rather I leave you untouched, I am happy to do, and just do color-management to keep with my personal style. It’s all about you, after all!!
Once your images have been chosen and you’ve made your final selection for add-ons, it can take 4-6 weeks to fulfill your order. Not only do I touch every image, but I design your album(s)/products, order them from the lab, and have them shipped to me for a quality check before they are given to you! From there, it’s your choice to have your products shipped to you, or if you are local, come by and pick them up (I love seeing reactions!).
Ta-da! You did it, you amazing creature, you! You did something bold, beautiful and oh-so-vulnerable, and I could not be more proud. I hope you treasure the experience and your heirloom pieces forever.
**Privacy: Boudoir is a very intimate business, and trust is important. You may sign a model release that will allow me to share some of your images (and ones of your choice, at that) if you like, but there are also no penalties if you'd prefer to keep your images private. If you choose to graciously allow me share some images, you will only be tagged if you specifically request to be, as I take my clients privacy very seriously.
Called a changeling by family and friends, I’ve never been what one calls “normal”, and my work is a reflection of that. I am a dreamer, who doesn’t believe in the boundaries that society sets and sees the beauty in everything. As a queer femme photographer, I strongly believe in inclusivity and my goal is to make everyone in front of my camera feel magical and glamourous. I love being able to bring a client’s dream to life or helping them see their beauty for the first time. I love being able to help people heal in front of the camera, and boudoir is a unique way of doing so with the vulnerability you have to do so. My pronouns are she/her/they/them/fae. My work has been published in Gothesque, Numinous Magazine, Philocaly and many others. As someone whose been in front of the camera herself, and modeled for over 10+ years, I have a unique view of what it’s like to be on that side of the lens. The majority of my clients have found me via referral, and I couldn’t be happier with that.
When I’m not holding a camera, you can find me with a book in my hands instead, playing with my cats, performing at Ren Faires as a stage combatant, wandering the woods with my partner, or getting involved in a D>D campaign. I go where the creativity takes me, whether it’s wielding swords or getting lost in a book.
