Miss M- Part One: Hampton Roads Virginia Boudoir Photographer

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.”

-Sophia Loren

One thing I firmly believe is that ALL people are beautiful. There is something inside us all that makes us truly unique and those differences are so beautiful. 

When Miss M came in she was nervous. Like most of our clients, she worried that she would not be able to “look sexy”. She was worried that she would laugh throughout her entire session, because she laughs when she’s nervous. She was worried about this and about that. 

But when she finished in hair and makeup, stepped into a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, and twirled in front of the mirror in this gorgeous collection from Agent Provocateur, all of our eyes filled with tears.

Watching a woman transform from a nervous wreck to a stunning, strong, and confident bombshell right before your eyes is a powerful experience. 

Miss M is an incredible mother of twin boys. When she came in for her session, she had been balancing work and motherhood alone while her husband was deployed. She wanted to create a gift for him, but I think she needed this for herself just as much.

When we started shooting, there were a lot of nervous laughs. But as we progressed, Miss M posed like a supermodel. When I showed her the back of the camera, her eyes filled with tear and she couldn’t believe it was her.


When I delivered Miss M’s album, we both cried.

She told me it was such a powerful experience and that it gave her so much confidence.


I am so incredibly passionate about what I do. It is a transformative experience. It truly is.

Watching Miss M come in nervous and leave feeling proud and confident reaffirms my belief that a boudoir session is something that ALL women deserve to experience.

Every type, every body, every style, every personality. A huge part of what I do is getting to know YOU and creating your […]

When I say that almost every single client is worried that this process intimidates EVERY. SINGLE. CLIENT. I’m not kidding. The hardest part of being a boudoir photographer is seeing how prevalent low self-esteem is – regardless of size. The best part of being a boudoir photographer is being able to squash those insecurities and […]

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, […]
