#1 - Celebrate Divorce

It’s time to flip the script on what society tells us is a sad time. For many women, divorce is an opportunity to embrace newfound freedom and celebrate personal growth. Divorce is usually a challenging experience, and you deserve to feel sexy, empowered, and confident! A boudoir photoshoot is a perfect way to show yourself that you’re not gonna miss a beat in the next chapter of your life!

#2 - Celebrating Milestones in Life with a Boudoir Photoshoot

Life is full of big and small milestones, and they all deserve to be celebrated. Whether you're popping champagne to celebrate buying your dream house or shedding tears of joy as your last kiddo leaves the nest, milestone moments deserve recognition. And yes, I really did have a client come to me after closing on her dream house. She said the process was mentally draining, and she wanted a boudoir photoshoot to lift her spirits and get back into a relaxed headspace.

#3 - Feeling Empowered and Reclaiming Your Self Esteem

Let's get real for a second. We all have days when we don't feel our best. Between the stresses of work and the never-ending to-do lists, it can be hard to keep a positive mindset.

But you know what? You’re beautiful, and sometimes all you need is a little reminder of that. That's where a boudoir photoshoot comes in. There's just something about slipping into some sexy lingerie and connecting with your body that can make you feel empowered again.

#4 - Weight Loss

We all know how hard it is to shed those stubborn pounds, but when you do, it's time to celebrate! Whether you've been hitting the gym every day or finally said goodbye to that pesky post-baby weight, you deserve to celebrate your body.

In my studio, we celebrate bodies of all shapes and sizes and have lingerie in our client closet to fit everyone. So you’re welcome to choose from our pieces or treat yourself to lingerie you’ve been eyeing as you worked your ass off. Either way, a boudoir photoshoot is the perfect way to show off all your hard-earned curves!

#5 - Reconnecting with Your Body After Having Children with a Boudoir Photoshoot

One of the most incredible things your body can do is give birth. It’s truly a miracle. But I also know from personal experience how much of a toll it takes on your mind and body. 

Through a series of self-portraits, I used boudoir photography to reconnect to my body after I had my son. So if you’re feeling like that too, just know it’s normal. 

Whether you're a new mom or your kids are all grown up, a boudoir photoshoot is a chance to focus on yourself for a few hours and remind yourself of the woman you are outside of the title “Mom.”

Imagine their face when they open those photos on the morning of your wedding day! So if you need a break from the chaos of wedding planning to focus on yourself for a few hours, we’ll treat you to a day of pampering you deserve.

#7 - Maternity Boudoir Photos

Before you scroll away, I know allll about how crazy our hormones get during pregnancy. So if you’re at a point in your pregnancy where you don’t feel sexy, I promise that's just the hormones talkin'. Do you remember the nude portrait of Demi Moore on Vanity Fair that was allll the rage in the ’90s? It’s stunning, and so are you, mama! Pregnancy is a time in your life that you’ll remember fondly. And I’d love to show you how sexy you are in a maternity boudoir photoshoot. You won’t regret it!

#8 - Couples Boudoir Photoshoots  

Whether you're celebrating an anniversary or simply want to spice up intimacy with your partner,  a couples boudoir photoshoot is the perfect way to do it. *insert my mischievous grin here* The only caveat is that I only photograph my return female clients with their partners. So if you’ve had a session with me in the past, and think a couple’s shoot would be a fun way to ignite the flames in your bedroom, let’s chat!

#9 - Sexual Abuse Survivors

As a boudoir photographer, I believe every woman deserves to feel confident, empowered, and beautiful in her skin. For survivors of sexual abuse, this can be incredibly challenging, but there is healing available. Not only did boudoir photography help me reconnect with my body after having my son, but it also helped me process sexual abuse trauma.

A boudoir photoshoot can help you take control of the narrative, reclaim your power and celebrate your resilience. However you want to process your journey, I’m here for you. We’ll move through your session as slowly as you need so you’re comfortable and have time to process emotions. Whether you keep these photos private or share them with a trusted loved one, they can be a powerful reminder of your strength and beauty.

Ready to get out of your own way? We’re all creatures of habit, but it’s good to shake things up occasionally and push our boundaries. A boudoir photoshoot allows you to step outside your everyday routine and embrace a new side of yourself - confident, bold, and unapologetically sexy!
