Did a boudoir shoot and made an album with the photos as my husband’s wedding gift. Shari had me laughing the whole time and made me feel so comfortable & sexy in front of the camera even though I was initially self-conscious & nervous. I loved...
that she had me pose in several different outfits and was happy to shoot some tasteful nudes. So yeah - I was basically naked in front of someone I just met, and I couldn’t have cared less - that’s how amazing she was. If you’re unsure, just DO IT! Not only did my husband love them, it made ME feel good and empowered.

Boy am I glad I kept the appointment! It was one of the most liberating, fun and amazing things I’ve ever done for MYSELF (let alone for my future husband)

They are clean and crisp and I’m still shocked that it’s me in the pictures!!! (Fun bonus: build yourself a killer “I’m sexy” playlist and you can Bluetooth right into her sound system to get that extra boost of confidence!) we shot for 3 hours and my portfolio contains 9 “looks”!!!
Shari was great to communicate with throughout the booking and the week of the shoot. meeting her was like BAM instant friendship (I mean she is seeing you practically naked). I thought I would be freaked out but after a few snaps of the camera it was fine (this is her JOB).

Then, as I was posing in the window, I could see myself in the reflection and it really made me a little emotional. It was an incredibly raw and bold thing for me to do and it was so liberating.

After going to school for fashion photography, I quickly learned what an impact you have on someone when photographing them. Most of my clients come to me nervous and apprehensive. I can't even tell you how many times I've heard "I can't believe I'm doing this", those same clients leave our session saying "that was amazing!". To me, boudoir photography is a true gift because of the impact I have on my clients. I love giving my clients what I believe to be one of the greatest gifts... the moment. I know they will forever have these images to reflect back on. These memories truly are invaluable.
