As I take a moment to reflect on my journey as a boudoir photographer, I find myself drawn to the sources of inspiration that have shaped my craft. From the timeless elegance of classical paintings I see at the Art Institute to the ethereal sculptures I had the pleasure of seeing while visiting the Met in NYC and The Getty Villa in Los Angeles, each piece of art speaks to me in its own unique language.
Soft, dreamy color palettes reminiscent of pastel skies at dawn evoke a sense of serenity and femininity, while the chic ambiance of stylish hotels ignites my imagination with visions of intimate moments captured in luxurious settings. But perhaps, it is the interplay of beautiful lighting and the timeless inspiration of film photography that fuels my creativity, allowing me to weave narratives of sensuality and empowerment through every frame.
As I continue to grow and evolve as a photographer, I am endlessly inspired by the boundless beauty that surrounds me in every day life. Here’s a sampling of the beauty inspiring my work today.
