Myssfit Magazine

I'm super excited to announce that my photos are featured in this month's issue of Myssfit Magazine!  You can find photos from sessions with two of my models in MYSSFIT ALL-ternative Magazine VOLUME 2 JUNE 2018.  

Here is a photo of one of my beautiful models holding up her copy of the magazine.  

I'm so honored to be featured in this magazine for June.  I really love my career as a photographer and it's so exciting getting to see my photos in print.  

This photoshoot with Stephanie was so much fun!  I don't have much time to get creative like this anymore so I really enjoyed it.  This was my first attempt at applying gold leaf.  I'm so happy with the final results and I will be using it again in more photo shoots this summer!  If you would like to incorporate gold leaf into your boudoir session let me know.  It adds about an hour of prep time but it is totally worth it!

This was my first time shooting with Bree and I can't wait to work with her again!  She rocked this super cute set from Forever 21.   And those purple, glittery heels!!!

Retro Rosie

I recently connected with a badass business owner in Lakewood.  Miranda's shop is called Retro Rosie.  If you haven't been there before you need to stop by!  The shop is located in the heart of the city.  Not only is it in a great location on Detroit Road (right next to Cleveland Vegan) but it's so adorable inside! 

Retro Rosie has the cutest lingerie too!  These outfits would be perfect for your upcoming boudoir session!  They also carry a variety of sizes that are perfect for all body types.  Stop in and try some pieces on!

I love what this shop is all about!  Women empowerment, pampering yourself, being original, all of the things I emphasize with my boudoir photography.  Plus Miranda is one of the coolest people you'll ever meet.  The vibe of the shop is super inviting because of her very warm and welcoming personality.  You'll love everything about your experience at Retro Rosie!  

Here are a few of my favorite outfits at the shop!  I recommend these to any of my boudoir clients.  Many people try to hide behind loose fitting clothes to hide "problem areas."  In reality, there are many tighter fitting options that look much more flattering.  High-waisted pieces look great on everyone!

Valentine's Day Boudoir

I'm so excited to be collaborating with Tease Hair and Body Parlor located in downtown Lakewood.  I love the location of this salon!  It's right next to The Root Cafe and Lion & Blue.  

I have a Valentine's Day display with samples of my boudoir photography displayed in the salon.  Look at how amazing this place is!  I love the Lakewood charm and the vibe of Tease.  It's literally my dream space for shooting boudoir sessions!  The lighting, the furniture,  the hardwood floors, the gorgeous natural light, the tall ceilings.  I love it all!  

If you're planning to do a Valentine's Day boudoir session, there's not much time left to book!  Contact me today if you're considering gifting some products to your significant other this year.  

Stop by the salon for a service and to check out the display!  You can also find out more information about Tease on their Instagram page.  

Your love life should be your favorite fairy tale

You may have seen the super romantic couple photos on Instagram and other social media and thought to yourself “I wish my husband and I had photos like that” or maybe even “There’s no way my finace and I could ever look that comfortable on camera.”

Well…

a.)     You can!

b.)    Ummm yes you can!

I believe in these types of sessions.  I think they are important and very meaningful.  It’s so easy to get comfortable in a relationship…to start taking one another for granted.  Classic story: It’s been years.  Every time you wake up they’re there.  And when you come home from work, they’re there.  And when you go to bed at night…you’ve got it…. they’re there.  And there hasn’t been a time yet where that wasn’t the case.  But I am a firm believer in cherishing all the small moments of a relationship.  I believe those mean more than anything.  Appreciating that you get to wake up next to someone you love every day, and come home to them after work, and go to bed with them.  That means so much more than a fancy anniversary dinner or an expensive Christmas gift. 

After my marriage ended I vowed to stop taking the people I love for granted.  Tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone and I want those I care about to know what they mean to me.

I am currently in the most beautiful relationship I ever could have imagined.  And once I realized how special this man is, I promised myself that I would nurture that crazy-in-love feeling that I experienced at the beginning of our relationship.  I knew I never wanted to forget that feeling.  So we say I love you way too much and we write redundant love letters way too often.  We tell one another how much we are appreciated daily.  We constantly compliment each other.  And I take way too many pictures in hopes of making all my favorite moments stand still for me to remember forever.  This greatest love of my life deserves to be cherished and held on to for dear life. 

 

I'm going to be honest - couple sessions are my favorite.  I love the dynamics and uniqueness of every relationship.  And I really I love to see my clients' reactions to their gallery!   

Book your couple session now!  You can have on lots of clothes, a little bit of clothes, no clothes, it doesn't matter to me.  You don't have to be a super touchy-feely, outwardly romantic couple.  I promise I can find a way to show your connection through your photos.
