I was talking with my mentor early last week, when it dawned on me. This wasn’t an option, it was a calling. An unshakable feeling down to the very last cell in my body that I had to share my passion for helping women realize how beautiful and powerful they are. Far too many women […]

A boudoir photoshoot with us is not about lingerie, being naked, booty shots, or making you feel ‘exposed.’  It’s a lot about joy—true, raw, un-bound joy.  It’s about finding it, dancing with it, letting it flood through the cracks.   It’s about not taking anything too seriously–it’s about celebrating exactly who you are, in this moment.  […]

When I opened the doors to my boudoir business, I figured I’d play with poses and watch my clients live their best lives in gorgeous hair/makeup…but I never considered this would mean anything deeper than that.

Confidence doesn’t come from achieving the ‘perfect’ body. It comes from embracing the one you have.  Make it a practice not nit-pick, obsess, avoid the mirror, to cover yourself up. Life is far too short not to enjoy all that you have been blessed with. You don’t want to look back at all the time […]

From time to time, women share with me their greatest concern is the cost of the experience and products. Cost is an area often misconceived to be unattainable to some and is misunderstood by others. Is boudoir expensive? That all depends on your idea of expensive which is completely relative to your own perspective and […]

Thistle & Spire is one of those brands that make me ooh and ahh every single time. And one the things I love about Thistle & Spire is they also have buxom options. This means they’re size inclusive and their bra cup sizing goes beyond fitting only those with more petite bust lines. The designs […]

So many women talk themselves out of doing things they may enjoy.  But have you heard of the book, “The Year of ‘Yes’”?  The author talks about how her automatic response to everything in life was “no” if it didn’t revolve around her career. Even then, she was terrified to attend networking events or say yes […]
