Can’t wait to work on Saturday’s beautiful Wine and Roses wedding! Corrine and Kyle are currently vacationing in the Bahamas – have a great time, you two!
Andrea has been a dear friend for years now. If I could use a few words to describe her, some might be “spunky”, “beautiful”, “loyal”, and “ambitious”. She has started her own blog showcasing her fashion and style, which you can find here. Andrea has a magnetic personality that attracts so many friends. When she’s on vacation, she meets new people and plans new vacations with them in the future. She has been a bridesmaid so many times that I’m pretty sure she can relate to Katherine Heigl’s character in the movie “27 Dresses”. This time, however, she has found the man who deserves to stand next to her for the rest of her life. Fred is amazing, a perfect fit, and an incredible guy.
In the time that I have known Andrea, she has been one of my number one supporters. I know that she believes in my work, and she shouts it from every rooftop she can find. When Andrea told me she was getting married, I was beyond excited. This woman is one of the most stylish ladies I know, and I knew her wedding would be over the top. And (just to tease), you will be seeing more of Andrea and Fred’s special day in the near future.
Andrea and Fred, I love you two! I am looking forward to more Christmas cocktail parties, eventually a beautiful baby bump, backyard BBQ’s, some newborn photography, fun winery trips, and family sessions in the future. It is in your case that I have created close friends out of clients, which is one of the most pleasant and unexpected perks of my profession.
I LOVED Andrea and Fred’s first look. Andrea used her bridesmaids to shield herself from Fred’s view until just the right moment, when she revealed herself and allowed him to watch the rest of her walk toward him.
I must warn my readers that the next images will be overwhelmingly full of details. Andrea did not skimp!
More vendors from Andrea and Fred’s special day will be added soon!
A special thank you from Katherine Vess of Katherine Vess Photography for the support and lovely images she captured as my second shooter.

Alright, ladies – I have a treat for you. For the past couple of months, I have been telling you that boudoir isn’t only for women that come in one shape or size. Now I’m going to prove it. Meet Heidi, one of my SUPER beautiful (and yet curvy) clients of the January boudoir marathon. Heidi was nervous at the prospect of attempting a boudoir session, but she also knew that her husband would be incredibly surprised and LOVE the images. Her husband loves her for who she is and sees her as the gorgeous woman he married, so why should she not invest in such a gift for his Valentine’s Day present?! And as Heidi revealed to me when I asked if I could show her images, “I have my book on display. Never thought I would show it but you captured my personality so well and made me feel like a beautiful woman.” Now THAT is what boudoir is about, ladies!
And by the way, Heidi’s husband DID love the album she invested in.
This is the final blog post in the boudoir series from January. I have been inspired by my weekend, and I feel that another boudoir marathon weekend will be necessary in July. Many ladies have shown interest in an outdoor session, so I will be posting more information shortly on summer sessions. Included will be multiple package options, discounts for early bookings and referrals, and every package will include hair and makeup. Time slots will fill quickly, so don’t hesitate to put a deposit down when registration opens in order to reserve yours right away.
Of all the ladies I worked with during the boudoir marathon, I have to say that Isabel’s was the most fun. I did enjoy every single session, but Isabel had a playfulness about her that became extremely apparent in her images. She gathered up all the courage she had, enjoyed getting dolled up, and rocked this session like a true model. We joked about the images being for her husband for Valentine’s Day (“Not really – I’m doing them for ME!”), and she approached the session like it was an adventure. It was almost effortless to get an amazing shot of this girl, which is why I saved her for last. Thank you for all of your sweet smiles, fun poses, and your carefree personality, Isabel. I am so glad you were a part of my weekend!
One of the biggest excuses I hear from women for not scheduling their boudoir sessions is that they are not happy with their bodies. I made it a point to emphasize that my boudoir marathon weekend would include ladies of all sizes who wanted to spice things up for their partner. I have to stop here and say that I have received some very nice messages from some VERY happy husbands. Ladies, they love the pictures, I assure you.
My job is to focus less on details and areas of the body that my client likes the least, and maximize those that are best to showcase. Lauren spelled out for me the concerns she had about her body. She revealed to me what areas she and her husband loved the most. Together, Lauren and I came up with a session full of hotness for her and her husband to enjoy.
Boudoir is about dressing up, letting loose, and stepping out of your daily roles in order to focus on YOU. Lauren is a mommy, a wife, a sister, friend… She works hard to take care of her family’s needs and neglects her own if necessary. For a couple of hours, Lauren instead focused on feeling beautiful. Enjoy her results!
