hey gorgeous!

Have a lingerie set from Valentine’s Day that you never wore...but are dying to? Feel like stepping outside your comfort zone for a confidence-boosting photo session? Counting down the days until your wedding day and searching for a photography session that’s truly all about you? Well, you’re in the right place! Whether you have a section in your closet dedicated to spicy bedroom-wear or one sort-of-lacy bra is as far as you’ve ventured down that road, my boudoir photography is made for you!

Welcome to the Lavender Lounge Luxury Boudoir experience, where you can surround yourself with the calming scent of lavender, sprinkle yourself in rose petals, and drop jaws with your powerful gaze. From feminine and romantic to strong and sultry, we can capture any mood and suit any vision. With my expert prompts and poses, you’ll look your absolute best while celebrating your unique, beautiful body. Yes, even if you have that one feature that makes you self-conscious. You deserve to kick back, sip champagne, and have the attention on you for a day. 

From casual, cozy-sweatered looks in your classic Calvin Kleins to lounging in teddies and Louboutins fit for a queen, I’m all about celebrating what makes you you. I don’t believe boudoir sessions should ever feel cookie-cutter, so whether you’re hoping to keep it modest, to let your inner sexy goddess free for a day or create a work of art suited for museum displays, let’s work together to custom-craft a session that fits your needs and comfort zone. With a customizable, true-to-you experience, your boudoir session can deliver the fun, glammed-up feel you want along with the showstopping photos of your dreams!

say hello

Anywhere from 3 to 12 months before your ideal session date, send me an inquiry with some details on who you are and what you’re looking for in a boudoir experience. I’ll be back in touch in 2 business days so we can schedule a call!


The next step is to connect over the phone. Boudoir sessions are incredibly fun, but it’s completely normal to feel a bit shy and nervous when you first begin the planning process. So, I’ll fill you in on my process and answer any questions and concerns you may have. Then, if you decide I’m the right fit, I’ll collect your session fee right there over the phone, email you the receipt and contract, and your session will go on the calendar!


I have all the answers to all the little questions you’re pondering, like, “What do I wear?” or “Heels? Props? Whaaat?” or “So, um...where should I buy my lingerie from anyway?” I’ll send you a session guide and plan your hair and makeup, which I provide in-studio before your session. Together, we’ll craft a showstopping session just for you! 


In the blink of an eye, your session day will arrive! With mimosa in hand, you’ll get your hair and makeup done in the studio while we pick a soundtrack for the session. Then, over the course of two hours and up to five outfit changes, you’ll work it for the camera while I click away. And never worry about not knowing what to do with your hands or how to pose on a windowsill—I’ll direct you with the prompts and poses you need to shine. When the session is over, you’ll leave feeling confident and powerful and a goodie bag to keep the luxury experience going!


Most of the time, we'll hang out after your session where you'll get to see your beautiful images for the first time! Filled with 60+ stunning photos, your gallery will give you a vast selection to choose from when creating your album and selecting prints. I’ll work with you to narrow down your options and help you create the perfect products. Your amazing photos should be treasured and displayed, not stuck in a password-protected digital gallery forever.


About four weeks after your gallery reveal, your gorgeous, heirloom quality products will arrive! As testaments to your confidence and beauty, these photos will forever preserve who you are during this once-in-a-lifetime chapter in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

I recommend booking 3-6 months in advance, but I’ve had clients book up to a year in advance before! So, please reach out ASAP to ensure we can schedule your session.

How far in advance should I book my session?

Yes! I provide complimentary hair and makeup service by a licensed cosmetologist to all of my boudoir clients. The last thing you need to be worried about before your session is how to execute the perfect smokey eye! So, we’ll chat beforehand about your hair and makeup vision to ensure the stylist can come prepared.

Is hair and makeup provided?

Your boudoir package comes with airbrushing and fine art editing, so I’m happy to edit out anything that makes you feel less than your best. I can also work with you to pose in ways that conceal or draw attention away from any areas you’d rather not see highlighted.

Can you edit out some of the things on my body I’m not so confident about?

I offer albums in a variety of sizes, metal prints, and sets of matted prints. However you hope to display your photos, I look forward to creating it with you! 

What physical products do you offer?

I offer customizable pre-session payment plans that ensure you’ve paid in full by session day. These can be adjusted any way that works for you, as long as all the payments are complete by the date of your session. And you can upgrade your image and album collection at any time, even on the day of the gallery reveal!

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely. I only share images on my website or social media with your approval. I offer three options to clients: to share, to only share anonymous photos, or to not share at all. Your choice! 

Can I make my images private?

Styling your session can actually be one of the most difficult parts of the whole process, because there are so many options out there! That is why I've included a few pages on lingerie in by session guide. Knowing what suits your body type and what lingerie works well for you will help you decide what to wear!

What should I Wear?

Absolutely! Have you ever thought of doing a cozier piece for your boudoir session? Either a chunky-knit sweater or a cardigan would be a cute addition to your session! A lot of my clients like to find thigh high socks to wear with their sweater, and some just wear the sweater and some cute panties with it! Either way, cozy boudoir... with a cup of coffee... now that's what I'm talking about! 

I really want to do this, but I want to wear something more conservative. Is that ok?
