Photo by James Bitz
Almost 10 years ago, I picked up my first camera. The leather was worn, and the strap was frayed, but it just felt right. With the help of my older sister, herself a professional photographer, I learned everything I could, and eventually transitioned from that old-fashioned film camera to a modern digital Nikon, and now an incredible Sony a9.
Starting out in a demanding industry at the young age of 18 was exciting and eye opening. I was fortunate to work as a second shooter with other photographers, under whose guidance I was able to learn the fundamentals of traditional photography. I developed my own style of soft highlights and moody tones which you see in my work today and has become my signature style. I transitioned from weddings and engagements to only offering luxury intimate portrait sessions, it was the best decision I had ever made.
Helping people see their beauty is what keeps my love of photography growing. I've stepping in front of the camera to show you that I know how it feels to be terrified of seeing your flaws, but I can promise you, I also know how life changing it is.
Since 2014, I have run my own business. After working for a large wedding company, I decided I needed something new. I wanted to have that small business that made you feel at home. I wanted to create a friendship, instead of just a business transaction. I wanted to make art again.
On December 31st 2017, I opened the doors to my first boudoir studio. By March 2018, I was published in my second magazine, and this was just the beginning!! In 2019 I started traveling and offering destination boudoirs and female empowerment retreats.
My whole life has changed into showing women how beautiful they are no matter the size, color, or shape of their bodies. 2020 is on its way and there's no stopping the magic to come.
