When disposable cameras were all the rage in the 90's, I stumbled upon my love affair with photography. Fast forward to 2021, and I decided to take that passion seriously.

After dabbling in various styles, I found my calling in the glamorous world of fashion and boudoir photography.

Fashion photography? It's my playground for unleashing creativity. But through boudoir photography, I can  help others embrace self-love—and that is the ultimate reward. Combine the two? Pure magic! 

To me, there's nothing more captivating than someone owning their unique beauty, It's your superpower, your magnetic charm and us women?! We are a FORCE!

Whether it's through photography or any other medium, art celebrates diversity. It opens our eyes to new perspectives and in a world where imitation is everywhere, staying true to yourself? That's the ultimate masterpiece—the art of being unapologetically you.

I aim to veer slightly from the traditional boudoir style by infusing a touch of fashion flair into the mix. Boudoir has the potential to transcend its boundaries! Are we blending the best of both worlds, or do you lean towards a pure boudoir or fashion shoot? Let's discuss and paint the town with a masterpiece that screams, "ME!"
