He said, “If you had $10,000,000, would you still do photography?” After taking a few moments to process his question, the answer was simple—I would never quit photography. Here’s why.
The truth is that boudoir photography has become so much more than just a job for me. It has opened up the opportunity to connect with women in a powerful way. When I’m behind the camera, I can see their confidence begin to blossom as they recognize their own beauty and strength. That connection helps them realize how worthy they are of love and acceptance and allows me to share in that journey with them.
Boudoir photography allows us to freeze time in an image that will last forever. Every day we as women are expected to be perfect—but we’re not! We make mistakes, have flaws, and sometimes feel like we’re invisible. And yet through boudoir photography, we can capture moments that remind us of our strength and worthiness despite all of those imperfections. In these photos, we can see ourselves as beautiful even in the midst of life’s messes and struggles.
With each new project or assignment comes the challenge of taking pictures that tell a story in ways words cannot express. This is what drives me every day—the challenge of delivering stunning images while pushing myself creatively by experimenting with different lighting techniques and angles or by exploring new locations or ideas. This challenge keeps things interesting and allows me to grow as an artist while also producing work that reflects who I am as a photographer and visual storyteller.
At the end of the day, no amount of money could ever replace my passion for boudoir photography. It’s not just about taking pictures – it’s about connecting with survivors and women on a deeper level and helping them embrace who they are.
That kind of connection is priceless, and it’s what motivates me every day to continue doing what I love most – photographing beautiful women!
