Miss J's Saucy & Sweet Boudoir Session | Lancaster PA Boudoir Photographer

Miss J was so excited for her boudoir session because it was a new experience for her, as it is for most of my clients. Let me tell you this lady rocked her session. As soon as her hair and makeup was done I could see the confidence coming off her in waves. I had so much fun with this babe, getting to document her beauty and this time in her life. 

BOUDOIR ROCKS! If you're interested in having your own boudoir session head here and let's chat! If you're NYC head here to check out the details on my August NYC boudoir marathon while there are still spots!

Miss A Lace Love Babe | Boudoir

Miss A Lace Love Babe | Boudoir

When I first laid eyes upon all the fabulous lacy garments Miss A brought me my eyes lit up (especially the pastels!). It's a common boudoir misconception that to look sexy you need to stick to dark, moody, saturated colors. Well news flash: your clothes don't make you sexy, YOU MAKE YOU SEXY! You could dress in paper bag and you can still smolder! That goes for everyone!

Miss A also asked me if I thought she should plan her hair so that you couldn't see the magenta ends. My reaction was :O OF course she shouldn't hide them! They are part of her self expression, her personality. Don't hide parts of yourself. You're beautiful!

Miss K Retro Disco Babe | Boudoir

If you've been reading my blog for any significant amount of time you know who this fabulous babe is. She is one of the bravest and toughest people I know.

Boudoir aims to show the subject just how beautiful they are from a 3rd party, unbiased perspective. This lady is heart, soul, and mind a beautiful warrior. The beauty we see in ourselves is riddled with self criticisms and external pressures, but for all of the people I photograph my goal is to show them in their pure, unfiltered, raw beauty and ferocity.

Williamsburg Hotel Wedding Feature on Catalyst Wedding Co. | Styled Shoot

Williamsburg Hotel Wedding Feature on Catalyst Wedding Co. | Styled Shoot

This post has been a long time coming and I am so happy to announce that this editorial has been published on Catalyst Wedding Co.! Catalyst Wedding Co. is all about celebrating the diversity of the human race and celebrating people and couples of all shapes, sizes, races, religions, genders (or lack thereof), and anything else you can imagine. SO to be published on a site that supports what I believe in so fully was an honor, and one I hope to have a gain someday. 

I had the amazing opportunity to photograph this wedding editorial earlier in 2017 and it was a huge project. We ended up with 22 vendors and I am forever thankful to everyone who helped bring this vision to reality. We were all so inspired by the style and the vibe of the new Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn and this stylish and glam editorial was the end result of the inspiration.

Enjoy the beautiful landscapes and these images that I love so very much!

Wilderness and Water | Boudoir

Boudoir is confidence. Boudoir is beauty. Boudoir is self-love. One of my favorite sessions with Noelle was when we got to be free and create some amazing outdoor boudoir images. I am so passionate about boudoir and making women feel like their best selves. Knowing Noelle was headed off to LA soon (this was my last session with her before she left) I wanted to make sure that she left full of confidence in herself and her beauty. I hope that this session will provide her with a constant reminder of how fierce and fearless she is. I love getting to work with ladies to remind them of how truly amazing they are. I cannot wait to share several more boudoir sessions with you in the future!

Paige at The Dazzler, Brooklyn | Portraits

There are times when inspiration hits you so hard it's difficult to stand. I'd heard from so many people how fabulous Paige is and knew how much I loved her work, but actually collaborating with her was more than I ever imagined. I was in Brooklyn for a bridal editorial and wanted finally meet the famous Paige. We got stuck with rain but I am so happy we did because I wouldn't have been able to come up with these photos otherwise. Also how awesome is this room from The Dazzler?! I am counting down the days until I can work with Paige again. Until then, I'll have these favorites to tide me over!

Gather & Grow Workshop | Styled Shoot

When I first found out that my dear friend Sophie was going to be co-hosting the Gather & Grow workshop in NYC the first thing I did was ask how I could help. The fact that she had everything pulled together led me to my second question: Can I come? 

Now if you know Sophie's work you know that we have different styles. I'm dark and moody and she's light and airy. However, if you know her work you also probably know that she is amazing at what she does and she can put together something beautiful flawlessly. I wanted to take the amazing opportunity to challenge myself to capture something outside of my usual style and make it feel more like my usual work. I also took the opportunity to get to create something more personal and shoot hybrid- both digital and film. I have loved film since my dad gifted me one of his cameras from when he was in high school. I can say without a doubt that said camera changed my life. Anyways I see film right now as a luxury. I don't get a lot of clients interested in film, but I am hoping to incorporate it into my work more and more. I hope you enjoy these photos and make sure to check out all of the amazing vendors that helped make this incredible!
