you’ve come to the right place.

What if your boudoir session felt less like a copy-paste experience, and more like a way for you to capture all the things that make you…..well, you.

You are not one-dimensional – and your session should reflect that.  We’ll capture the  demure to rowdy & everything in between.  These sessions are passionately & collaboratively crafted for you  to unapologetically make your mark.

I am here to support & guide you as re-connect with your body & celebrate your confidence.

You don’t have to change a thing about yourself to deserve this.

Next Steps


Complimentary Phone or Zoom Consultation

During this consultation, we’ll just get to know each other a bit & chat about the process, your vision for your session, & next steps.


Let’s Make it Official!

I will send over your contract & proposal.  Once I receive your retainer, your session will be officially on the calendar.


Session Day

Sessions are generally up to 90 minutes with up to three outfit changes + fine art nude set.  I do offer some posing guidance but also encourage you to move freely once you get comfortable (I promise, you will!)  There will be a good mix of posed, candids, & detail images in your final gallery for you to choose from!


Gallery Reveal

A few weeks after your session, we’ll have a gallery reveal over Zoom! You can make all of your selections during this time.  Any digitals purchased will be sent to you via digital download.

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I book my boudoir session? 

I generally book 6-8 weeks out, though sometimes I have some last minute openings. Reach out here to inquire! 

Why should I choose you instead of another boudoir photographer? 

There are tons of amazing artists to choose from so it ultimately comes down to your style and preferences.  If you love a more moody & fine art vibe, plus you love the nostalgia of film photography, then we will have an awesome time together! 

How much should I budget for my boudoir session? 

Session fees start at $295. Products are in addition to the session fee & begin at $700. Clients spend $1200+ on average. Check out the pricing page for more information

Where will my session take place? 

We can plan the session at a location of your choice – including your home, an outdoor location, or a styled home rental/studio near you.  A travel or rental fee may apply for alternate locations.  Check out my preferred locations

Do you share my images?

I only share images with your explicit, written permission.  No one will see your images before you do. 

"'Melissa is incredible! Her energy instantly made me feel beautiful and confident. She captured me as myself, and I was blown away by how perfect the pictures came out!
