Growing up, my mother was a wedding cake designer. One of her designs was chosen to be photographed by BRIDES Magazine, so I got to go with her to NYC for a photoshoot in their Manhattan studio. The entire process was incredible. I knew then and there that I was falling in love with photoshoot energy.
I began my professional career as a corporate event planner in 2007 and quickly added wedding planning to my repertoire. I was raised in and around the wedding industry so it seemed natural to add it to my services. Several years later, my cousin literally changed my life after I did a boudoir session with her. It boosted my confidence and I saw myself in a whole new light. After that, I was interested in helping other women feel the same way and wanted more freedom in my work life, so that's when I picked up my first camera. When I initially began photography, my focus was only on boudoir. This was about 10 years ago and boudoir was still very taboo. No one talked about it and sure as hell didn't post about it. It was all done under the radar. I've seen it evolve over the years and it's been incredible.
We are all here to learn, evolve, grow & expand. Self-love is the key component for getting through this life and having healthy boundaries will always land you in the most ideal situations. Learn how to save yourself, but be soft enough to be open for help when it presents itself.
I'm not a rule follower or a conformist. I do what I feel is intuitively best for me, even when no one else agrees. I don't care about fitting in or following the crowd or playing small and I don't care for surface level interactions of any kind. I'm completely unavailable for a mediocre, boring existence.
Progress > Perfection. I've struggled with extreme OCD in my business and I've got in my own way more than once. Distractions and comparisons will set you back.
Black is my favorite color. I love the ocean, sunsets, wine and moody summer nights. Connecting to nature is medicinal to me but I love the bright lights of my city. Traveling and exploring new places gives me the best dopamine high.
