What made you decide to book a boudoir shoot?
I wanted to do something special as a wedding gift for my soon to be husband. However, it turned out to be more of a gift for myself and my self confidence than I could have ever imagined.
Did you have any fears going into your session?
I was more excited than anything. I had read so many other women’s testimonies about how empowering their experience was and I couldn’t wait to have my hair and makeup done and take beautiful photos.
How was the actual session different from what you expected (if at all)?
The session was everything I imagined, in the best way possible! Jolene was such a blast to work with and she has the kindest heart. Everything was amazing!
What was your favorite part of the entire experience? (hair and makeup, the shoot, image reveal, giving the images etc..)
Looking through the photos! Waiting that week for Jolene to edit them after my shoot so that I could have the digital copies was a true test of my patience. I couldn’t wait to get them and start showing everyone!
How has the response been to your images?
My girlfriends are all obsessed with them! I have given them all access to my digitals and they can’t stop talking about them. Waiting these next three months til my wedding to show my husband will be nothing short of torture!
What is your advice for women interested in a boudoir experience?
Do it! Book it right now! Don’t wait to lose weight or feel more confident, this experience will make you feel so beautiful and confident and in love with yourself just the way you are.
Did anything change about the way you see your own beauty as a result of your experience?
I feel so much more confident in myself and my images helped me to see the beauty in myself that so many others already saw.
As a photographer, the significance of intent cannot be overstated. I create photographs of women for themselves first and foremost. While some clients may choose to share their pictures with their significant others, my primary objective is to craft imagery for YOU first and foremost. I want you to look at your images and FEEL something. I want your images make you feel powerful, confident and self aware. I want your images to remind you of where you are right now. What you’ve overcome and where you are heading.
I pride myself on making the boudoir photoshoot experience process EASY! I will hold your hand every step of the way.

I photographed my first boudoir photoshoot in 2007, and since then I have been in absolute awe of what boudoir shoots do for women and their self confidence. As a woman myself I completely understand the struggle. It’s getting better out there, but we are still constantly bombarded with messages of not being good enough. […]
The first step on any amazing journey is always the hardest . I firmly believe that everything you desire lies beyond the realm of fear. I can't wait to show you!
