Here is a sample of some of the gorgeousness that we have witnessed over the past 365 days…enjoy!!!

Hello stranger…

I am so neglectful of this poor blog lately… My life has been a roller coaster for the past several months and lots of changes have and are taking place.  Have you ever wondered why it has to be so complicated and confusing?  I do it daily, but I have learned a whole lot of life lessons lately, so I guess that is a positive out of all the mess…

Anyway, I am still here taking some amazing women’s photos and helping them to see themselves in a new positive way, and in the process of that, continuing to heal me.

We have a lot of questions about how this experience works, so I thought I would give a little insight into how this process works…

No photos are shared unless you sign a model release, there is a clause in the contract when you book, that if there is an anonymous image, we have permission to use that, but even if you don’t won’t that, we won’t do it.

We have laundered wardrobe options available at the studio for people to borrow, bring a pair of nude or black thongs to wear under anything you use of ours.

Pricing- the normal price for a complete shoot is only $200 and that gets my amazing team primping you up as well!  Prints and products are sold separately and that ranges from $250-$3000, we literally  have something for every budget and we also offer financing!

I have had people ask if we still shoot couples, yessss!!  We love to capture that connection between you and your lover, but still keeping it tasteful!! We will also shoot nudes, but again, tastefully done!  This is art, not dirty stuff!!

Having a boudoir shoot is such an empowering experience and now I can say that from experience!  A while back I had my amazing friend Shelli from Blue Velvet Boudoir take mine in my old studio that I had for three years…there were so many memories in that place that we let go last month, it was a very emotional thing for me and so I am glad I got to have my photos taken there.  Here is a link to them and the password is confidencerocks…

I can now say with conviction (even though I did that before, I am extra convinced now lol) EVERY WOMEN NEEDS TO DO THIS FOR THEMSELVES!!!!  Give us a holler today to book yours!!!

A day in the life

I wish I had a clone of myself…one that knew how my mind NEVER stops going….never, and could do some of the endless tasks I do.  It is utterly exhausting most of the time.  I envy my husband, who can lay down at night, and be asleep in 5.9 seconds and there I lay, TRYING to shut my mind up to be able to go to sleep.  I have two full time jobs and do a pretty good job of keeping it all going.  My house work, very lacking. My down time, sorely neglected (glad I took my mini vacay in August). I thrive on being busy though, even as tiring as it all is, life is fabulous right now.  My new job, stressful indeed, but I know I am where I belong right now.  But here is just a snippet of a typical day in my life…

5am~ wake up usually before my husbands’ clock goes off and lay there until he gets up at 5:10

5:12~lay in bed and check emails and skim Facebook until my bladder says I must get up (I always have the hope I will be able to go back to sleep after Robert leaves…rarely happens…like three times a year, maybe)

5:30~ get up with the intentions of showering first, but usually drink my coffee while I edit a few pictures

6:30~ rush to take said shower because a few pictures turned into a lot more (or blogging, or updating my website, or replying to an email or message, or etc…you get the point)

7:15~get out the door to take kid to school, sit in the car and wait another ten minutes for the teenager who never gets in a hurry, even though I am losing my mind and honking the horn

8:00~arrive at my full time job that actually pays me lol and set messages to auto reply for my business, then there is so much that goes on in this time frame that there is no way I could put it all in this blog

5:00~ check messages and emails and Facebook and get back to all the stuff that has went on from 8-5; schedule clients, hair stylists, make up artists and myself; grab food as I head to the studio

5:30~reveals…this is one of my most favorite things to do, I love seeing clients see their images…it’s the best!! Or sometimes we have shoots at this time, which is one of my other favorite things to do (then I don’t get home until about 9)

6:30~home to edit a few more pictures for a couple of minutes, or work on album design, or blog, or advertise, and plan on seeing my kid and husband for a bit

10:00~realize that it is my bedtime and I can’t see straight anymore and my family has been without me again, so I go to bed

10:05~realize I am wide awake now, so I pick up a book

11:00~finally have read enough that my brain will be quite and I can go to sleep

Repeat 5-6 days a week haha!!

There you have just an idea of what it’s like to have my crazy busy life, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything!!  ( I really do see my family more than I have let on, but still not as much as I’d like to, but one is a teenager and he only needs me for food, and the hubby is just about as busy as I am with all he does…)

Living the dream and loving life!!
