Hello

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!

Talk Soon,

Patty

Life is an awfully big adventure …
