When I was 14 I told my very conservative mother that I wanted to be a sex therapist. I didn’t know it then, but that choice would set me on the path that I find myself on today. While studying psychology in Hawaii I stumbled upon photography. It was there that my love was born. I don’t know if it was the beautiful lands surrounding me or the beautiful people, but I knew that the changes that I felt with my clients was something that would stick with me and launch me to where I am today.
I have since put my plans to become a sex therapist on hold while I take a risk and let passion guide me. Over the last five years I have had the pleasure of photographing hundreds of women and being able to share in their secrets, laugh with them, and help them on their journey towards self-love.
The passion that burned inside the fourteen year old me to help individuals and couples on their path towards confidence, being able to express their sexuality, and being able to express their passion to their lovers is something that has never faded. Photography has allowed me to give my clients the gift of self-acceptance. We have been able to take a journey on rediscovering oneself and exploring what society feels should stay hidden. I firmly feel that unrestrained passion is what makes for beautiful souls.
As a boudoir photographer I have photographed women of all shapes and sizes, of all cultures, of all backgrounds. These women are doctors and lawyers. They are nurses and therapists. They are sales goddesses and entrepreneurs. They are mothers and wives. They are just like you and me. I have met women who come with a lot of insecurities and leave a brand new person.
What I do is important and I want to share it with the world.
I strongly feel that every woman should have a boudoir session because we deserve to be celebrated. We are daughters, sisters, mothers, wives, best friends, and lovers. We juggle many roles throughout our lives and often need a moment to find ourselves again, free from any labels.
I may have set sex therapy aside for the moment, but I am loving this journey. Photography is its own form of therapy and I look forward to exploring it with you.
