Have you ever been consumed in what you're doing and suddenly smelled a familiar aroma, even if just for a moment? Perhaps it was a stranger's cologne, a bit of salt air or a garden of flowers but definitely something that you recognize. Where did it take you? In most cases, it takes you to a moment in your life that was very happy. The scent gave us a memory of a time in which we felt safe, relaxed or in love.
Every week new artists are putting out some fantastic new music, yet you still love the songs and music from your youth. Why? Because they remind of a time when you didn't have a care in the world. You hear a song and remember the night of your wedding or the night you first fell in love. You're taken back to dancing all night with your best friends. You remember that second date with your significant other, gazing into each other's eyes. You remember what you were wearing, where you went to eat afterward and how safe and secure you felt.
These things all make you smile because you remember days and nights that you didn't want to ever end. And since you remember them, they didn't really ever end, did they?
So how can I sit here and tell you that a boudoir session makes you more confident and makes you feel empowered? How can I say that you'll feel sexy and beautiful and that it can be life changing? I'm not stupid and neither are you. We both know that these feelings will be incredibly strong during your session and for a period of time afterward. But then life will happen and at some point, someone will do something to tear down your confidence. Someone will try to make you feel like you're not beautiful.
But as with certain other fantastic experiences, things will happen to evoke your memories. You'll smell makeup powder and be taken back to the time you spent with our hair and makeup professional, talking about life, being pampered and at the same time transformed.
You might taste a wine or a certain chocolate and then you're sitting in our chair, drinking our wine and eating our chocolate, reliving your session all over again.
You'll hear a camera click somewhere and think about the time that you were in front of our lenses posing like a supermodel.
But most of all, you'll see your photos and remember that you are indeed sexy and beautiful. You'll remember how you felt when you showed him for the first time. That confidence comes back. That bold femininity returns. Yep, you're back, baby!
That's how a boudoir session changes a life. These memories are why we do things. They're what defines us and makes us who we are. When's the last time you did anything FOR YOU? It's time to look in the mirror and see that you're sexy, unstoppable and fearless.
Why do I feel like I'm the best fit for your boudoir session?
When I started doing boudoir sessions I didn't know what I was doing. As a film school graduate, I understood the technical aspects of a camera and a basic idea of how the lighting should work but that's it. A session was, "okay, try this. Nope, that's not working, let's do this instead". We'd repeat it a few times and then just hope for the best. Flash forward to over 100 sessions later--Now I've got invaluable experience of working with all types of body and personality types. I've also taken workshops from some of the biggest names in boudoir photography throughout the world and even went to New York for a lingerie workshop so that I can help clients that aren't as knowledgeable. I specialize in working with women and helping them look and feel their best. If you need a photographer that takes personal ownership in your images and wants you to be in love with them, then I'm your photographer.
As a matter-of-fact, I will guarantee that you love your results. In writing.

Our rate is based on a session at our Wesley Chapel Studio but we also love shooting on location so if that's what appeals to you, we can make it happen. Some popular locations include luxury hotels in the St. Pete and Orlando area, a client's home and in nature. Most boudoir can't be shot entirely in public though so we sometimes have to get creative. There are locations in Land O' Lakes that are clothing optional and even clothing optional beaches in Florida that we can make our way to. Fees will vary for out-of-studio locations.
