Miss M | Hampton Roads Virginia Boudoir Photography

Societal pressures to meet a certain “ideal” are bad enough, but when you add criticism from your partner? It takes on a whole other level of intensity. Miss M spent far too much time hearing she wasn’t good enough and finally made the decision to walk away. As a result of all that mental fuckery, Miss M desperately needed a way to reclaim her body for herself. That’s where I, and my downtown Norfolk studio, come in. This is something near and dear to my heart. I LOVE showing women that they are everything they want to be and more – as they are in this moment. And in the next moment and in the next. You are worthy of being seen this way. You are perfection embodied and it’s an honor to show you that.


Why did you decide that you wanted to do a boudoir session?

After a divorce and being told from the love of my life that I wasn’t the supermodel that he deserved….. Well, that shit fucks your head up! 5 years of trying to “find” a man made me realize I need my own happiness first before I ever share a life with someone. Well here I am now making career changes and making my life happen for me. I wanted to embrace my confidence and my happiness with myself and show my daughter that a life on your own is just as beautiful as with a partner.

What made you decide to hire me as your photographer?

BECAUSE.YOU.ARE.THE.BEST! (Side note from me: Excuse me why I blush!)

How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?

Excitement and happiness about being able to express my confidence and love for myself.

How did you feel about having your hair and makeup done?

It is always fun being pampered by someone. I’m always doing it to other clients, it was relaxing to have someone do it to me. 🙂

Have you been plagued by negative self-esteem because someone tore you down? Sadly enough, that’s the case for many of my clients.

Perfectionism is a personal standard, attitude, or philosophy that demands perfection and rejects anything less. We wouldn’t demand perfection from our friends, families, or colleagues. So why do we demand it of ourselves? Perfectionism is a horrible form of self abuse. And this year, we are overcoming perfectionism! By overcoming perfectionism, we aren’t lowering our […]
