You are beautiful. Powerful. Radiant. Maybe you're ready to revel in your glory- or maybe you need a little help remembering how incredible you are. Either way, we've got you! There is no “boudoir formula” here – each session uniquely captures how you shine. I fully embrace whatever your idea of “sexy” or "beautiful" is. Hint: it comes in every size, shape, and confidence level!

How many times a day do we pick ourselves apart? How often do we go over a list in our head of every little thing we’d change about ourselves?

Really- isn’t life too short? 


I opened my Portland boudoir photography studio after years of doing work in the Body Positivity movement. I found Body Positivity after spending most of my life battling an eating disorder and struggling with low self confidence.

Over the course of my journey, I would hear the way that people, especially women, talked about themselves, and it would just break my heart. I realized, if all of us, at every size, at every age, are struggling with such similar feelings, how much joy are we all missing out on? What can I do to help?

Once I saw the kind of life altering magic that truly embracing yourself brings, I dedicated my life to inspiring others do the same. We are so lucky to be alive! Our bodies, no matter what form they take, are amazing. What could you achieve if you spent less time agonizing over the mirror or the scale and more time nurturing your own greatness?

I believe that you are absolutely amazing and that you deserve to know it! I want to give you tangible proof that you are a one of a kind masterpiece. Boudoir is about documenting your magic, so that you can't ever forget it. I specialize in coaching that magic out from you until it's so clear that you can’t miss it. Not only is a boudoir session a total blast, but through posing, lighting, and laughter, I will craft for you the most jaw-droppingly beautiful images of yourself that you’ve ever had!

Come and see why Fodor's named a session with me as one of the top things to do in the Pacific Northwest (!!). Session fees for my Portland Boudoir Studio begin at $499 and include our shooting time, help with styling, professional hair and makeup, use of our beautiful props, a variety of sets, high end retouching, and a cozy viewing and ordering session.
