These stunning images capture the bond of trust you build with not just your photographer but your HMU artist. Especially for such an intimate shoot as boudoir. Boudoir is an art form; one that is sadly cheapened by pushing the limit for sexual content instead of its true focus. It is about capturing the most intimate details of someone. It is honoring the complete, yet fragile trust that is given to me, the woman behind the lens, to share someone’s beauty, innermost thoughts and absolute vulnerability. Together, Sarah and I work as a team to show you the deepest depths of your soul.

Halloween is tomorrow. October is such a special month for me, it’s always been my favorite. I’ve always wanted to be married in October. And now I’m sitting on the couch feeling sentimental and to be honest quite sick as I hope and pray Riley makes her arrival before October fades away. I’m able to […]

A World Where There Are Octobers

That heart stopping moment when the nurse looks at you and smiles and says, “Ah! It’s a girl, congratulations!” I was so surprised. I knew from the beginning it was a girl but recently Alex had talked convincingly enough about how great boys were that I had accepted being a boy’s mom but NOPE. It’s […]

Baby is officially into the second trimester as of May 11th! It is amazing to think that I’ve been pregnant for 14 weeks. There’s a slight baby bump now but its not enough for someone to look at me and think oh! baby. [maybe like she’s got a bit of a tummy but the rest […]
