WHAT TO EXPECT

Every woman is a “gorgeous photo waiting to happen”,
regardless of age, body type or any other circumstances.

The first step in getting to know each other is having a brief conversation to ensure I’m the right photographer for you. Choosing the best fit photographer is an important decision to make and it’s my pleasure to discuss every detail with you. I will walk you through the experience and answer your questions. As a result, you will get a sense of who I am, what I can offer you and if what I provide is What you genuinely need.

Each woman who walks into my studio or is in front of my camera is special and it’s important to me that I know you are. I want your shoot to be the best it can be, so I cover everything from wardrobe to mood boards, from styling, hair/makeup to preparation. My goal is to design a totally unique shoot for you!

I’ve been shooting portraits of women for over well over a decade now and it’s been an extraordinary journey!  I’ve met so many incredible women along the way. Women I’ll never forget, women who have touched my heart and left a stamp on my soul.

I feel completely honored to do what I do!

I don’t just take great photos, I compose, direct and make them.  My goal/purpose is to cultivate and portray you in your very best essence and to create art for you! Photos worthy of being enlarged life size and that you could look at and enjoy for your entire lifetime.

Does this sound like a something you want?

We have incredible hair and make-up team.  My main MU and hair artist, Keleigh has been working in TV and films for the last 25 years and has been on my team for the last 9. She was an integral part of the inception of Intimately Yours and Boudoir LA.  Not only is she one of my favorite people in this world she is incredibly gifted, warm, loving and one of my best assets. If she’s not available I have a few other incredible artists with amazing energy and positive reinforcement to grace your day with.

Hair and Make-up stays with us through the shoot so we can get a variety of different looks, which I can go over with you on the phone. Fun hair and makeup can certainly make your shoot unique and honestly, the sky is the limit. Do you want something soft and clean? Strong and dramatic? Just plain sexy and seductive? Whatever you fancy we can make happen!

Whether it’s been years, months or weeks since you’ve shopped for lingerie, it’s our forte to help you navigate where to start. Once you book, we’ll send you our lingerie guide along with inspirational mood boards that we have designed for posing, hair/makeup, lighting, and wardrobe. This ignites your creativity and your wheels will start turning with ideas. I use your mood board to create your shoot. We have a consultation about your favorite images, and poses.  Once you arrive at the studio and we’ve gone over it together, I have an intuitive sense of what to do. After so many years of doing this, I’ve found my own unique creative process. I’m always pushing my creativity and if you found me, and you like what I do, you can see that my eye is a little different than the rest. I start every shoot as a blank canvas and each shoot I want to be different and unique from the last. My goal is to create art, so I’m going to look at styles, patterns, colors, textures differently than most and  combine them in a unique way, culminating in artwork that you won’t get anywhere else.

We look at all your garments and discern what is going to work the best together. It’s a collaborative effort, one that I want you to be a part of.  The process in creating something totally unique and different is something I absolutely love to do with my clients!

Most sessions are 3 hours plus long with hair and makeup. I’m not a stickler on time and understand some hair and makeup changes take longer than usual. The most important thing is that I take my time with clients, therefore, I ensure that the slots I book are stretched out. I have found that a 3 hour time slot hits the sweet spot. We can get plenty of outfits in within that time frame and you won’t feel mentally and physically exhausted when you leave. My shoots are a workout. If you can bend it, it’s bending, if you can twist it, it’s twisting! The goal is for you to feel totally fulfilled and walk out the door feeling energized and fantastic, rather than beat and over it!

Being that I am downtown, in the heart of the arts district I recommend planning a date with a friend after the shoot. If we shoot in the afternoon, you’ll be done around 5 or 6, which is great for catching happy hour with one of your besties!

I’m pretty gifted in this department and it’s something that just comes very naturally to me.
Being a dancer has helped tremendously but honestly it has come from thousands and thousands of hours I’ve spent over the course of the last 15 years to get to where I am today! Lots of mistakes and years of critiques is what it takes. I’ve shot commercial projects, editorials for magazines, over 100 weddings, actors, models, and dancers for the past decade. These experiences have provided me with an incredible direction and posing repertoire. I love guiding my clients to try poses they would have never thought they could do, poses that make their eyes sparkle with glee when they view the final clicks. Choosing a photographer who knows posing is super duper uber important and especially if this is something you have not done before.

You need a Photographer who knows the right angles to make your photos the best they can be. If you shoot with me, you can count on me to be directing you the entire time. I’ll be guiding you where to look, bend, and squeeze while reminding you to breathe as you conduct the perfect tease. It’s basically a sexy game of Simon Says!

My favorite! The joy, relief, awe, and praise that happens here is the glaze on the donut for me. I don’t want it without it! Nothing makes me happier as a commissioned artist than reveling in my client’s praise and approval. I’ve run a portrait business for some time now and it’s rare that women walk into the reveal thinking they killed it and that they’re going to have a hard time actually narrowing down their photos to 10 or 15.

I love blowing my clients away, and really I love blowing my own damn self away. I look at each shoot as just another way to outdo myself and add another milestone to the track record.

I ask clients to carve out 90 minutes for the reveal. This gives us time to catch up, chat a little before the show. Then we go through them one by one. Once we have narrowed down the best of the best, we curate your amazing collection by looking at the various expressions, poses, and outfits. The result is a collection of photos you can’t live without!

From there we discuss options. I show you albums, boxes, prints, and other fun products to display your sexy photos in.

Digital packages take 10-14 business days for completion. Prints, Album, and boxes can take 3-6 weeks. Rush orders can be completed in 2-3 weeks for a $100 rush fee.

Providing a space for grace, self-love, growth and true inner beauty is a passion and a gift I nourish daily and enjoy extending to empower women. My life’s mission beyond being a photographer is to inspire as many people as I can.

It’s easy to get distracted in this world, to forget how powerful we are. If we’re not carefully conscious, people will try and dim our lights. And before we know it, we’ve become someone we don’t recognize

We must always be looking for new ways to grow, thrive and shine in the beautiful glow we all embody. This usually includes doing the uncomfortable. It is only when we push through the fear that we realize it was a silly voice in our head.

We have to become self-aware of the negative thoughts that can bleed into all areas of our life. We have to protect and nurture this light! My goal as your photographer is to help peel away those layers of fears and redirect your mind. Even it’s for a couple hours, my mission is for you to leave in the presence of your strength and beauty in a new way. You are more powerful than you think, always!

I hope to forever change your life!

I hope you are next!
