Nice to Meet You!
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!
When I’m not shooting, my time is spent with my husband, David (also a professional photographer) and our four dogs. I actually show my dogs in AKC competitions and occasionally breed. They are my children. Another passion of mine is cooking and/or eating. I love exploring the world and different cultures through food, the spicier, the better! While being a photographer is my dream job, I might be tempted to switch careers if someone offered me a job traveling the world sampling different foods. Or as Iron Chef. J
Enough about me, let’s talk about you! Send me an email or give me a call and let me know what questions you have about doing a boudoir session. Or better, let’s look at some dates and get your session scheduled!
