Welcome, and thanks for visiting my website! My name is Patty and these are my images! I’m a boudoir and wedding photographer located in Raleigh, NC.
I often get asked the question “how did you get started shooting boudoir photography?”Twelve years ago I was a full time wedding photographer looking to branch out.A lot of wedding photographers will also do family portraiture, but in order to be a good children's photographer, you need to have a very energetic, almost goofy, approach to keep their interest and draw them out and that’s just not me. I'm very calm and relaxed when I shoot. I decided to give boudoir photography a try instead.What I found was that my laid back, relaxed approach to shooting, while no good with kids, was perfect for bringing out the best in nervous women.And I LOVE it!Self-esteem and self-confidence are issues all of us as women deal with, and a boudoir session is the perfect way to help see ourselves from a different angle, both literally and figuratively.I find it incredibly rewarding!
