You can park in the driveway or in the cul-de-sac in front of the house. If you need anything, call or text me at 765.894.0027.

Makeup

Arrive ready to be photographed. Some of my clients love to get all glammed up before a session, and some of my clients like to be photographed in a more natural state. You do you! My favorite local makeup artist is Lori Boykin.

WHAT TO WEAR

I am a big believer that less is more when it comes to styling your sessions. Wear what makes YOU feel sexy, not what society might tell you is sexy. I always say that wardrobe is just my way to get you naked! The best outfit you can have is literally the one you are blessed with: your lovely body!

Some of my favorite lingerie shops

THISTLE AND SPIRE

Proudly female-founded in Brooklyn in 2015, Thistle and Spire was created to give a beautiful boost to anyone who needs a lift, literally and figuratively. Fed up with the same old stale styles and beauty standards, we were inspired to do things daringly different and to give you that extra edge to put power into every moment.
