My hubby was scrolling TikTok, (he’s hip like that 😂), and he came across a video I overheard… it got me to thinking about the differences between portraits and boudoir/intimate portraits. Because it’s really not about the clothes or the language in my opinion….
It’s about who you’re intended viewer is.

There are portraits we’ll happily send to grandma and hang on the wall. They’re happy confident, and playful (ideally).
But you’re more then just smiles and power poses… you’re also full of desire, you’re vulnerable, you’re passionate, as well…. Intimate portrait sessions can cover these other expressions and more, as we’re creating images to express the whole self, not just the public self.
I specialize in portraits intended to help you express yourself in an intimate way, as a whole and beautiful human, not just the mask you wear for the world.
