I am sick of getting punished for trying to normalize female sexuality! I am tired of being ostracized for embracing the beauty of the female form.

Why is it “normal” and accepted to have images of violence and war? Why do we allow our children to play games that promote hatred and listen to songs that encourage greed and gluttony but squirm when asked if you want to have a print made from your boudoir session? I hear so often, “I don’t want my kids to see me in this way.” Why!? Why can’t we be proud of our bodies and our sexuality? Show them that it is NORMAL to be sexual, use this as a learning tool, a door to openly discuss safety and love in a sexual environment. If anything, use it to show them that you love yourself enough to display yourself as a work of art.

In Naomi Katz’s book, “Beautiful: Being an Empowered Young Woman,” she quotes, “By speaking honestly, we create a culture that embraces female sexuality without demeaning it, a culture that honors the most basic human desire and the beauty of women’s bodies.”

Stepping off of my soap box now…

Lavender, sunsets and boudoir

This summer, I had the wonderful opportunity to return to France (fun fact, I studied here in college) to take part in my best friend’s dream wedding. Although I have been to France several times throughout my life, this was the first time that I was able to see the lavender fields in full bloom and I was determined to shoot some boudoir in them. The challenge was, all of the fields are privately owned and most of them are in very public locations. However, while at the church (you can see it way back in the distance on top of the hill), I was able to scout out a small lavender field off of a dirt road so hubby and I ventured down to see what we could see.

It was an absolute dream! And although I didn’t have a model with me, I didn’t let that stop me! I positioned the camera, set the setting, told the hubs exactly where to stand (for the most part) and dropped trou (or dress, in this case).

What a fun and exhilarating experience. I can check that one off the bucket list!

A fine art creative outlet

As much as I adore photographing my clients in my Tarpon Springs studio, sometimes I need to step outside of my box and out of my comfort zone to get the creative juices flowing again.

So here we are, in the middle of the woods, sweating and getting bit by mosquitos and loving every minute of this gorgeous fine art nude session.

I’m also very proud and excited to announce that this series will be published in next month’s nude issue of “Solis Magazine”!

20 years later...

Can you tell that this sexy couple has been married for almost 20 years!? Marriage is so hard, it requires so much work and effort and dedication but when it’s done right, the reward of having a partner for life is so worth the effort. So if you’ve been married as long as these two have, what better way to celebrate your love and re-ignite the flame than with a couple’s session! They even ordered 3 huge canvases to hang in their bedroom to remind them daily that they are sexy, in love and meant to be <3

Twice as nice <3

Not only did I photograph this amazing woman’s first boudoir session, given as a gift to her husband on their wedding day, I also photographed her wedding (don’t ask me to shoot yours- I’m officially out of the wedding biz!), as well as her second boudoir session. The first shoot was for her husband, this one was for her (as it should be!). How could you not immediately fall in love with those amazing blue eyes, gorgeous golden locks and banging curves- she made my job incredibly easy <3

Bachelorette Boudoir Party!

This amazing Wifey-to-be started her Bachelorette weekend off with a Boudoir party (Yes, I do bachelorette parties!) at the studio where she and 6 other wild ladies came in and each had their own boudoir session. Champagne and lingerie flowed all morning and into the afternoon until each lady had gorgeous hair and makeup and each one had had their sexy session. Then, they took the party out on the town (why not, since everybody’s hair and makeup was done to perfection)!

To say this bride is gorgeous, sexy, hilarious and all around amazing is an understatement. Such a fun filled day!

Blonde Bombshell

I recently had a promo video shot to show clients what goes in to a boudoir session and to announce my new Tarpon Springs studio (video in the works and will be released soon!). Instead of hiring a model, I ran a "boudie call"- in return for modeling and letting us film them, the client would receive a free session and a complimentary phone app with their images! After receiving an overwhelming amount of inquiries and volunteers, I ultimately decided on this blond bombshell and what a bombshell she was!

I had such a great time filming our video and photographing this beauty! Stay tuned for the final capturing of this shoot about what all is involved in a boudoir photography session!

"I love being naked!"

"I love being naked!" was what she told me when we met up for her consult. "I'm just very comfortable in my own skin and prefer not to have clothes on- the way we were made to be!" My kind of girl! <3 As our session progressed and the outfits became smaller, her her confidence got bigger (this is a very common occurrence during our sessions!) :) And VIOLA! A gorgeous series of a stunning woman!

Another year older, another year sexier!

What do you get yourself for your 30th birthday?! A boudoir session of course! This spicy chic gifted herself the gift of sexiness for her 30th birthday. Bringing her best friend along for moral support (who also did a session that weekend!), they sipped champagne together and celebrated as this lovely lady rocked her shoot from beginning to end- radiating confidence with every pose and every outfit!
