Valentine's Day Boudoir Sessions // Santa Barbara, CA

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and has me reminiscing about this boudoir session I did with a client before her wedding day last year. It was so fun and empowering and I'm dying to do more of these this year! Boudoir is something I've always done, but never really advertised. Partly because of client privacy (I was given permission to use the images below) and partly because I've been so focused on building my wedding brand. But THIS is the year I expand my focus.

I will be hosting 2 days of Valentine's Day mini sessions; one on Sunday, January 24th from 9am to 2pm (5 slots available) and one on Sunday, January 31st from 9am to 2pm (5 slots available). Each session will be 45 minutes long and will include 20 high-resolution retouched images on a pretty flash drive and a set of 4x6 prints. Come with hair and makeup done or au natural - however you feel sexiest. Bring wardrobe options or nothing at all. Champagne and dirty jokes are on me. Each session costs $150.

Abby and Miran // Wedding // Louisville, KY

When I met Abby, we were both dance majors at YPAS - the performing arts magnet of duPont Manual High School in Louisville, KY. She came into the program the year after I did and I quickly noticed she was different from a lot of the other girls. She was mature beyond her age and a little weird and sarcastic and quick witted, not to mention a strong and beautiful dancer. All the things I look for in a friend. Even though we didn't stay close over the years after YPAS, I felt a kinship with her from the beginning so to get the call to photograph her wedding was SO exciting. I got to meet Miran for the first time over a Skype session and the three of us could have talked for hours. As you will see below, especially in their first dance photos, they are a perfect match for one another and I couldn't be happier for them.
