The thing I love most about personal branding sessions is seeing my client’s take their passion and turn it into a business. Earlier this week I got to meet with Krista and create the first branding images of her up and coming business TGIFarming. If you follow the link here you will see the Facebook live Krista and I did shortly after her session. During the live she described what she is striving for with her new business — healthy eating and helping others turn their backyards into their new produce aisle. Krista grows her own food- right in her backyard….and she is teaching ME how to do it (and she can teach YOU, too!).

We did her shoot in her beautiful Davis Island home garden. The wonderful Michele Renee The Studio did her hair and makeup. We also did a family portrait session. The sunset was absolutely beautiful that evening and I was able to get some stunning shots of this beautiful family.

This Diamond Girl is so inspiring! She makes it look so EASY and I know it truly is so healthy. Who wants to hop on the green garden train with me??

Boudoir is meant to take you out of your comfort zone but it is not meant to make you feel uncomfortable. Whatever you bring to your shoot should make you feel confident, beautiful, and sexy. Of course there are some essentials that I recommend like, a pair of black and neutral heels. Other than that, your photoshoot wardrobe it whatever you want. I don’t want you to think that lingerie is a requirement for a boudoir session. If that makes you nervous, no problem, brings what makes you feel like you! On the other hand, if shopping for sexy pieces sounds fun to you, then, bring it! For example, I love how for this shoot the client started off by keeping it simple and just bringing a simple matching Calvin Klein set. See, you can be comfortable and sexy at the same time! Let’s leave behind society’s expectations and focus on our own definitions of sexy.

I take great responsibility in creating a space for my clients to feel comfortable, and safe. The space you are in during your boudoir session is one of the most important elements to making my clients experience a great one.

It’s important that the trust between the photographer and the client is there. Through out these sessions I am sure to guide you so that you have a chance to warm up to the camera.

This is one of the reason why I tell my boudoir clients to bring an outfit to start off with that is comfy and makes them feel beautiful. I always will start off a boudoir session with my clients in this outfit first, and often times, the pictures we get from it are their favorites.

People are always intimidated by the word boudoir, but you don’t have to be half dressed to feel sexy. Boudoir is less about how you look and more about how you feel. That is why my number one goal during a boudoir session is to make you feel safe, comfortable, and most importantly beautiful.

A little Monday reminder for you….

EVERY body is a GOOD body! I know we live in a culture that is constantly promoting and pushing ideals.. and I also know so many of you have goals and put in hard work to achieve those goals for how you want to look and feel. Remember, the grass is greener where you water it.. meaning if you take care and LOVE the body you have right in this given moment, you will flourish. Unconditional love is meant for yourself as well. It’s amazing what can be accomplished once that barrier is crossed- going from loathing and wanting different.. to accepting and loving what is.. it’s incredible how much more enjoyable, and in ways easier, the journey will be- just with that shift of mindset. 

Embrace who you are in this very moment and reward yourself with an empowering boudoir session.
What negative thoughts about yourself do you need to let go of today in order for you to love yourself more?

“How to get a bikini body: 1) buy a bikini 2) put it on your body.”

— Whitney, ADP Diamond Girl


Wise words from an ADP Diamond Girl. I love it when my clients carrying on the mindset of self love long after their sessions. Boudoir is somewhat of a transformation of yourself view, and I can not tell you how happy it makes me feel when I see Diamond girls continue to live out their new positive mindset.

But when you think about it, that’s all their really is to it. You can wear whatever makes YOU feel good. You want to wear a bikini… who’s stopping you. I feel like sometimes we start to build this shell around ourselves and start to limit ourselves. I want to change that. Don’t let society decide what you should be happy in. It’s your body, your skin and no one else’s. No more doubt, no more self consciousness. YOU are limitless. So I challenge you… try something on that you’ve always wanted to try. You may be surprised how easy it is to feel beautiful when you’re being true to your inner self.
