When B arrived for her boudoir appointment, I nearly stopped breathing! Since most of my clients book me online, I rarely know what they look like before they arrive at my studio. B looked like she stepped straight out of a magazine! I felt more like I was shooting a model than an actual client!

When L told me she wanted to gift her groom with some sultry bridal boudoir, I was over the moon! I just adore this bride and was thrilled to honor her wedding bod through imagery! These images will forever be frozen in time so when she is old and grey, she can look back and remember her youth and how it felt to be a bride to be.

When D told me her vision for this session, I about died of excitement. D and I grew up swimming outside together so we have always been used to being somewhat naked in public. Swimmer girls have no shame when it comes to their bodies so when D wanted to celebrate her bridal bod with an outdoor boudoir session on the beach, I was all about it.

I love it when clients let me get creative. D is in the prime of her life: she is a successful business owner, single, in incredible shape… I felt honored to be able to capture this time in her life when she is killing it. D also let me get super creative with these images which I LOVE! She is fearless in front of the lens and it really paid off.

When K scheduled a session I couldn’t have been more excited! This darling is not only one of my boudoir clients but she is also one of my brides! She brought a veil and her wedding shoes to her session to get bridal in studio! I think it was the perfect way to get her excited for wedding day!

When a boudoir session involves whiskey, you know it’s a good day. J wanted some intimate portraits for her hubby as an anniversary present. She admitted to me that she used to be GREAT with gift giving but has gotten lax in the recent years of marriage. This year, I know her boudoir book will be one heck of a surprise!

When I first opened Dogwood Lane, I never dreamed that I would be posing in the space! Once a year, Ben and I have our photos taken together. Sometimes it’s during Christmas, sometimes it’s an anniversary session.. but this year, I’ve been really inspired by boudoir. I wanted to start offering couple’s boudoir sessions but before I did, I needed to feel what it’s like to be on the other side of the camera. After getting married, I undoubtedly became a better wedding photographer. The same rule applies to boudoir!

Is there anything more glamorous than a gal about to get married!? R decided to come in for a bridal boudoir session as a surprise to her fiance! She came into the studio just weeks before her big day! I love when clients plan it this way because they’re usually feeling super confident and beaming with self-love ready for their wedding!

I always feel insanely honored when other photographers choose me to photograph them. Rosi and I met via social media but officially met IRL during cherry blossom season. We were amongst the hundreds of sunrise photographers at the Jefferson memorial this spring. After meeting in person, we vowed to keep in touch!

True life: I was dying to do this photoshoot. A few years back, I met Cecillia at a work Christmas party. About a year later, she told me that she was interested in starting her own business (which would eventually turn into Postskript)! One of my major passions in life is helping people find their dream job and I also love connecting people that can build each other up and make those dreams reality.
