Anyone who knows me knows my biggest passions revolve around human sexuality and healthy living.
While these topics were openly discussed in my family while growing up, it was during my time at the University of California, Santa Barbara that I not only deepened my knowledge about sexuality and health, but also learned more about myself. I learned how to communicate more effectively with those around me, how to empower myself and others, as well as the importance of living in the moment. Some of the most important things I learned include active listening, compassionate communication, understanding the roots of jealousy, the true meaning of feminism and to eliminate ‘fat talk’ from my vocabulary and life.
I have an immense desire to help people build their self-esteem, as I am a true believer that people who have high self-worth are happier, and make better partners and friends. I believe people with good, healthy self-esteem are not afraid to make mistakes, because they understand mistakes are necessary for personal growth.
Boudoir photos are an opportunity to celebrate your self and your body, and to show appreciation for it. Due to the daily images society bombards us with, many of us end up being incredibly hard on our bodies, and easily forget all the great things our body does for us. My purpose is to create a safe and fun environment. To pamper you, to celebrate your accomplishments, highlight your strengths and navigate through your weaknesses. To nix the negativity and embrace the moment, and capture you as you are in the present moment.
I found something that combines my deep interests and my creativity into one art form when I began photographing boudoir almost a decade ago. I hope you join me in a journey of self-discovery, exploration and fun.
Here’s to strength, unabashed confidence and sensuality. And to being unapologetically human.
P.S. Since it would be unfair to talk the talk and not walk the walk, here’s an image from my own personal boudoir session...
