This luxurious boudoir session is one of my recent favorites, and not only because my client Brooke is drop-dead gorgeous, but because every detail fell into place. From the stunning private suite in a downtown Nashville hotel, to the excellent collaborative work of our hair and makeup team, to the stunning lingerie Brooke brought to the session - each aspect came together beautifully. We started with a more natural look and worked our way towards a dramatic style at the end of the session. Having our styling team on location was essential, and hair stylist AmyRose of Hocus Pocus and makeup artist Katie-Laine Thornton brought our visions to life. Stay tuned for a follow up post featuring Brooke with her BFF - because the only thing that’s more fun than doing a boudoir session alone is bringing in your best friend!

I love creating with Rosa, who is also an amazing photographer! She is an experienced model and really knows her way around the camera - including in front of the lens! This session goes to show that one fierce look can garner a lot of great images. It’s Hollywood glamour meets modern bombshell!
This was my second time visiting Albuquerque to create imagery with the ladies there, and I can’t wait to return there next month! From Hollywood Glam-style in-studio to on-location cosplay, these sessions were so much fun. Thank you to Venus, Annie, Holly, Mayo, and Ave for shooting with. me! I’ll be back in Albuquerque for the New Mexico Burlesque Festival next month, if you want to shoot with me, you can learn more and sign up here!
I was honored to visit with the beautiful burlesque dancer Chairmyn Meow before the holidays to create these images with her. Chairmyn, who is fighting cancer, is the epitome of strong femininity. I’m so glad we made these images together. Thank you Chairmyn for trusting me in these moments and sharing your reality and vulnerability with us. Gold costume by Glorious Pasties.
2018 was quite a year! I did 127 photo shoots, including boudoir, pinup, burlesque, couples, and even some weddings! Sessions took place indoors, outdoors, in abandoned locations, in my home studio, and in beautiful private homes - as well as swanky hotel rooms. I even had one session take place in a science lab and another at the Denver Botanical Gardens! I photographed boudoir beauties, burlesque queens, dark fairies, all manner of spooky folks, Beetlejuice, and even Santa Claus. I traveled to Nashville, Dallas, Hot Springs, Los Angeles, Florida, Montreal, and Albuquerque, while my personal travels took me to Iceland and Italy.
I want to send a huge thank you to every single person who got in front of my camera this year. I am so grateful to you for trusting me with your imagery, and I have had the best time creating with all of you. I am looking forward to another year full of amazing clients, collaborators, friends, and creatives.
