Simply Sexy Boudoir Session

As much as I love themed shoots, sometimes it really is best to keep it simple, especially with a natural beauty like this ! I am a firm believer in the idea that a woman is at her sexiest when she isn’t trying to be “sexy” & this session really drives the point home. Here’s a sneak peek of a laid back, yet gorgeous boudoir session from earlier this week. Hair & makeup by Elisha Seaton. Photographed at my studio inRead more

It’s not every day that you get a frickin supermodel in your studio ! Okay, so maybe she wasn’t really a supermodel – this was actually her first professional photo session everRead more

Easy Digger Cake + Surprise Cake Smash

I need to preface this post by saying that I committed the ultimate cake smash mistake – the cardinal sin of cake smashes – by using a chocolate cake. What’s the vendetta against chocolate cake ? Well, typically, when you see a kid of diaper wearing age surrounded by brown smears, your mind typically goes….elsewhere. You get where I’m going with this ? That being said, this was NOT to meant to be a cake smash. A few days ago,Read more
