Boudoir photography is a style of photography that captures intimate, sensual, and often provocative images of a subject. While some people may see it as simply a form of erotic photography, for me, boudoir photography is so much more than that. It's a way to empower women and help them embrace their beauty and confidence.
When I first started shooting boudoir photography, I was drawn to it because of the way it celebrated the female form. I saw how women who may not have been confident in their bodies were transformed during a boudoir photoshoot. It was amazing to see the confidence and empowerment that came with the experience.
As a photographer, I believe that everyone is beautiful in their own way, and boudoir photography allows me to showcase that beauty in a way that is both tasteful and empowering. I work with my clients to create a comfortable and safe environment where they can express themselves freely, without fear of judgment or shame.
One of the reasons I love shooting boudoir photography is because it challenges societal norms and expectations about beauty. There is a certain level of vulnerability that comes with being in front of the camera, and boudoir photography allows women to take ownership of their bodies and their beauty.
I also appreciate the creativity that comes with boudoir photography. Each photoshoot is unique, and I love working with my clients to create images that are personal and meaningful to them. Whether it's a particular pose or a specific prop, boudoir photography allows for endless possibilities and creativity.
Ultimately, the reason I shoot boudoir photography is because of the way it empowers women. Seeing the transformation that takes place during a photoshoot is truly incredible, and it's an honor to be a part of that process. Boudoir photography is not just about capturing beautiful images, it's about celebrating the beauty and confidence of the women I work with.
A Little Piece of My Story
I had dabbled in boudoir photography for years before I got serious about it. But after a divorce and another failed serious relationship after that, I took a year to focus on myself and that’s when I realized what boudoir photography could do. It’s about so much more than just pretty pictures.
During the “year of me”, I struggled to get out of a dark place. I blamed myself for those failed relationships. I thought maybe I wasn’t pretty enough, smart enough, funny enough, etc. Then I bought a house and started to remodel it, the minute my master was finished I took some self portraits in it. Those self portraits helped heal me and make me realize that I am strong and beautiful and was better off without those men in my life.
I posted a model call the next day and my first client came in when my living room literally didn’t have a ceiling or floor, but we went back to the finished section of the house and I got to learn first hand how to use a boudoir session to empower other women.
After shooting in my house for a few months, boudoir sets had taken over my whole house, so I turned my detached garage into a studio. I shot in there for 6 months, took a ton of boudoir photography courses, photographed 26 women and then decided it was time to buy myself a proper studio. That’s how I ended up at 127 N. Main Street in Hartford, WI.
Yup! That's me ^
Boudoir helped me crawl out of a dark place and learn to love and appreciate myself and now I get to help women everyday see themselves in the best possible light. Let me help remind you that you are confident, bold, beautiful and that you deserve to love yourself.
