This sultry Chicago boudoir session features a wardrobe by Agent Provocateur, one of the most luxurious, iconic lingerie brands in the world.

Earlier this year, I asked the lovely Loreen from Reenie Rose if she’d be interested in collaborating on a special boudoir art project. Lucky for me, she answered with a resounding YES. After my April Boudoir Event, I sent Loreen a few edited photos from the day and she transformed them into pen and ink […]

Well, they don’t call it a Marathon for nothing! I am exhausted. On Sunday, I hosted my Spring Boudoir Event at DL Loft in Chicago and it was SOLD. OUT. I worked with AMAZING, INSPIRING women. What were suppose to be 45-60 minute sessions ended up being closer to 1.5 hour sessions and I still […]
