welcome to

So much love

How can you tell a business is doing everything right? Repeat customers. That's right, I had such a beautiful experience working with Stephanie and her team the first time that I booked a second session 5 years later. The whole experience is truly euphoric. My first session was a wedding gift to my husband. The second session (three kids later) was for me. Stephanie and her team are fantastic to work with. She is there to walk you through it all and you leave with so much more than just boudoir photos, you also get a lasting memory.

So much love

As someone who is uncomfortably shy and awkward as I am, Steph and her team managed to make me feel the best I have about my body in forever. I was worried I wouldn’t like a single photo from my shoot, but turns out it was hard to choose which ones I loved most! The whole experience was awesome and comfortable from start to finish. I couldn’t recommend Steph and her team more. I feel like every woman and man should get to experience this kind of love for themselves. Just book your shoot and do it! You won’t regret it!

So much love

Stephanie was a rock star! From the moment I stepped in to do make up and hair with the artist extraordinaire, Dessa, she made me feel like I was the baddest woman out there. She helped me loosen up and get out of my comfort zone while physically showing me moves and being my hype woman. The photos came out flawlessly with a very quick turn around time and I completely trusted her with my body and spirit that day. I would HIGHLY suggest checking her out if you're interested in a boudoir shoot. I will be coming back !

Meet Steff

Let’s face it, I'd be lying if I said having scantily-clad / nude photos taken, isn't effing vulnerable. IT IS!!!! You're basically saying “Hi, yes...please photograph me in all my glory... I don't know you, but…* laughs nervously*... let's do this.” Gaaah! Deep breaths. 

I get it, I have taken thousands of photos and have been doing this for OVER 10 years. And to be clear, that is 10 + incredible years of solely boudoir photos; not weddings, not family photos, just boudoir baby! 

I love my job and with me it's so much MORE than the photos! It's about connecting with you, building trust with you, and about you feeling so comfortable with me, that it feels like we've been friends for ages!

Remember: feeling vulnerable isn't bad but it can be scary! So I'm here to help you through to the other side, to that place where you say “I did that and I’d do it again!”
