Empowered Women Empower Women

Over the years my photography has changed a great deal.  When I first started out I had no idea what I wanted to do, I was just thrilled people were willing to pay me to do something I loved to do anyway.  I photographed families, graduates, babies, and dogs.  I photographed events like weddings, engagements, and birthday parties.  My story isn't unlike other boudoir photographers, I took a few shots of a friend…
