Metamorphosis

This is one of those blogs where I feel like I need to say very little because our #LRPBoudueBeauty has said a whole lot.   Read below the dashes to ear this babes story! —- “They say time heals all wounds, but I disagree. As time passes, we cover our emotional and physical wounds with the bandages known as everyday life.  We get caught up with the tasks of being a mother, friend, significant other, or a career woman that we forget to live for ourselves. I learned that lesson several years ago when I lost myself.  I became so

Finding Myself Between Children

  Every few months we get an email with one of our clients who’s shoot date is approaching who is so stinking nervous that they almost consider cancelling.  They email me to find out “what their options are” and surrounding that question is always so much insight into who they are and what it is that they are actually afraid of.  This is something that we deserve to do for ourselves.  The nerves are there, and I tell all of my clients that it would be weird if they were NOT, because that would mean they strip down emotionally and

Girl Boss

I have been waiting a few months to finally be able to share this session!  I am absolutely in love with the babe we photographed here! You all know I am all about women power and women owning their power and there are few things that I love more than a girl boss!  Especially the kind of girl boss who creates her own way and path! This gorgeous babe and her partner had a dream of a restaurant and turned it into a reality!  When she first reached out to me about her session and suggested bringing food and

Summer Daze – An Editorial as Seen in Ellements Magazine

I have never been the biggest fan of summer, there has always been something about the pressure to relax that causes me to be even more stressed than usual. As someone who doesn’t really do holidays, I find the winter to be the most relaxing time of year for me.  I have no pressure, we just do our own little thing with my husband, daughter and I, as the rest of the world scurries around us in a maze of sparkle, lights and snow, trying to make the impossible – possible. I think that might be what I love

Living with PCOS

I live with PCOS, it sucks.  I have come to find more and more women that suffer the same way that I do every month and who live with some of the effects of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.  I would love to say it sounds worse than it is, but it really is a shitty thing to live with.  For the longest time I would be mortified of the little hair that grew from my chin, or the fact that I couldn’t lose weight no matter how hard I tried, or the periods so heavy I would be afraid to

Plus and Proud

So, I apparently am really really bad at taking vacations.  I am supposed to not do any work for 9 days, but how could I not sit down to work knowing I had this epic blog just waiting to be shared?  I think my husband will forgive me 😉 As a plus size woman myself, this blog really struck me on both a personal and professional level.  It is for the reasons of struggling so much to find lingerie that fit myself, that Randi, of Styled by Randi, and I, started The Shops at The Loft! This was the

Body Love Experience

“Calling her sessions “Body Love Experiences” may just sound like clever marketing, but I assure you, it is fact.”

Florida Curves – Part One.

As most of you know, I have a second business called Confident Curves. Confident Curves is a traveling workshop produced in tandem with my partner in crime from across the boarder Teri Hofford.  Teri is a badass babe on a mission to change the way that both women and men approach their bodies and is what she coins herself as “an emotional dominatrix” shutting down negative self talk in everyone that she approaches. Together Teri and I noticed that there was a big gap in the industry of body types that we felt were under represented! As often as we

Nothing is Sexier than Smart

This is the week of finally being able to share my personal projects that I created throughout the summer. This project in particular was a creative game changer for me.  It was one of the first times I challenged myself to work with what we, in the photography industry, call hard or harsh light.  It is the time of day when the sun is highest in the sky and most full and it is a challenge to photograph for sometimes even the most seasoned of professionals. Little did I know that this would change the way I approach light,
