When I lose a few pounds….

When people hear that I’m a boudoir photographer, I often get the response “I’ve always wanted to do that!” Sometimes that’s followed by something like “but first I need to lose ten pounds.” This always makes me a little sad. There’s a subtext in that statement that says the person doesn’t think they’re “good” or…

Hello, East Tennessee!

I’m so excited to say that I’m in Rogersville, TN full time now and am accepting bookings for boudoir photo shoots starting in mid April! My location is central to Knoxville and the Tri-cities area, just 35 minutes from Morristown and under a hour to Kingsport. I’m having a blast designing my new shooting space!…

Ms. M’s East Tennessee Wedding Boudoir Shoot

I love my job and enjoy each and every boudoir photography shoot that I do. Chatting with my clients during a session, drawing them out and getting to know them, watching their confidence grow and blossom before my eyes, all while satisfying my creative drive, well that’s pretty darn special to me. But every now…

Wedding Boudoir Shoot

When I was in school, I was “that” girl.  The one who wore glasses and always had her nose buried in a book.  Answering questions in class thrilled me; the thought of going to dances terrified me.  So of course I was drawn to the classic “makeover” movie:  the nerdy girl who feels like she’ll…

What Should I Wear for my Boudoir Photography Session?

One of the most common questions that I get asked by women is “what should I wear for my boudoir photography session?”  In a typical 2 hour session, we’ll use about 5 outfits.  For some women, that’s no problem.  If you’re a lingerie person, you probably already have a ton of it and are just looking…

Milk Bath Boudoir is Here!

Introducing Milk Bath Boudoir Photography!  No, I didn’t invent it, but I’m sure excited to be doing it!  So what is milk bath boudoir?  The concept is using water that’s opaque from the milk with flowers floating on it as a canvas for the photos.  The opaque water gives the images an ethereal, romantic look…

Alyssa’s Rogersville Boudoir Photography Session

Alyssa moved to North Carolina from her native Hawaii, and as I was shooting her boudoir photography session, I couldn’t help but think of sandy beaches and sunshine right here.  She just has that vibe!  Like a lot of the women I shoot, she was doing the session for her boyfriend who is in the…

Rachel’s Rogersville Boudoir Session

This is turning into the summer of the brunette!  So many beautiful women are absolutely rocking their darker hair color!  For her boudoir session, Rachel had these really cool streaks of color in hers.  They were subtle enough that you didn’t see them at first glance.  Then she’d move and the light would catch her…

Jamie’s Rogersville Boudoir Session

It’s always fun when clients find ways to make their  boudoir sessions very personal, especially if they’re giving the images as a gift.  I’ve had women use military or police uniforms, flags, teddy bears, ties, hard hats and blue prints, guns, footballs, cigars, even a saddle one time.  One client chose a batman t-shirt for…

There’s been a lot of talk lately about retouching photos and the amount of digital manipulation that is done in magazines, etc. As a photographer, some editing is definitely part of my job. With the advent of digital photography, what used to be done in an actual dark room during the film development process is…
