The Fast Five


here are my five favorite photos of the moment and why. 

I’m sharing my latest favorite images so clients can get a clear representation of my work. My aesthetic is tasteful, timeless, playful, and seductively glamourous.

"I'm not into photographing the 'standard' boudoir session. My approach is more 'boudoiresque' in nature. I like to develop intimate themes for my clients where the reveal is more about bearing 'soul vs body'. Feeling comfortable in your skin is what's most important to me. The demure always ignites imagination and anticipation."

The tease

I love shooting doorway teasers. It’s fast becoming a signature. "Boudoir is pure escapism. Escape your inner critic, escape the monotony of the daily grind, escape all levels of discomfort. The time to love yourself is now." - Maritza Buelvas

in a blush way

Like taking a daylight train to Paris. A subtle kiss of pink oozes a Francophile vibe. No passport required. Pack and meet me at the station, or should I say Bungalow?!

light play

I loved the 'light' Marilyn Monroe brought to a photo. This is my take on Modern Marilyn. I love both light n' airy images and seductively moody captures. I can never decide on one. A wise girl should never settle, after all.

Give your lover some extra ‘facetime’. I don’t think of Boudoir as being just one thing. The focus should be on sensuality—whatever that looks like for you. Whatever feels right. Kick off your heels and give me Bardot meets Sophia Loren. Give me retro sex kitten.

All White Everything to commemorate special moments and engagements.These images echo my eternal love of bohemian glamour and the many years I specialized in bridal hair. There’s something ‘oh so 70’s chic’ about playing peek-a-boo with tousled Farrah Fawcett hair.
