About The Photographer
My favorite things: the love of my life, laughter, eating out with friends (I hate to cook), being a middle sister to the two best sisters a girl could have, being an aunt and of course chocolate. The quote that describes me best: “Easily distracted by shiny things”
How did I find photography?
I guess you could say photography found me. I see photography as capturing that perfect moment exactly as it is. And I love capturing moments. I discovered fashion photography and modeling while enrolled at Barbizon school of modeling at the age of 13 and really never looked back. I started a career in the beauty industry at 16 and worked my way up the corporate ladder with over 23 years in the beauty and skin care industry. I have always enjoyed working with women and helping them see their true beauty. Being surrounded by beautiful and empowered women is like being in a room full of sisters… And I love it.After turning 40 and being diagnosed with cancer, I learned how important it is to truly know your inner beauty and strength and how important it is to have those moments captured in time. My goal as a boudoir photographer is for every client to leave feeling empowered uplifted & beautiful. A boudoir session is so much more then a gift for the man in your life it is The best gift a woman can give herself.I enjoyed photography as a hobby for over 22 years and started my journey as a professional photographer with my very own boudoir session. I was so nervous. I put it off for a year. “So I could lose weight” Haha, “I lost 3 pounds” but decided to bite the bullet and I made my appointment. It was truly the best decision I had made in a long time. It was at a time in my life where the word sexy was no longer in my vocabulary. After having cancer and multiple surgeries with all of the scars to prove it. having a boudoir session was simply not something I was excited about. Boy was I wrong. When I first viewed by gallery all I could do was cry. I felt so beautiful and empowered and yes… Sexy again. I knew at that moment I had found what I was meant to do. And I love it!!! Seeing the joy and laughter of my clients is truly a gift. Watching them come into their session shy, nervous, and a little uncomfortable and watching them bloom into a confident strong woman leaving empowered and feeling beautiful… well. That’s what it’s all about.
