I am an advocate, a leader, a doer, a dreamer, a fighter, and an empowered woman, to name a few...
I aim to create self confidence and self-love through my intimate portraiture.
I use the boudoir process to cultivate a compassionate self image.
I believe in empowerment through body-positivity.
I have fought my own demons with negative body image and lack of compassion toward myself. Once I found my true calling in boudoir photography, I was able to finally love myself through helping other women to do the same and, in turn, I was able to achieve even greater success in guiding women toward a breakthrough in perception; to say, “screw you” to our insecurities.
It is my sincere honor to have so many women from so many walks of life trust in me to capture their true essence on camera. I hope you will allow me to do the same for you.
I started doing makeup when I was in college as a way to heal from a sexual assault. Being able to transform myself into someone else was empowering, and being able to help others feel beautiful was even more so. I have since continued working professionally in the beauty industry since I was 19 and living abroad, and now in my hometown of Durango.
When Alexi approached me about becoming her stylist, her message inspired me so much! As someone who has struggled with body image issues to the point of self harm and eating disorders, meeting a photographer who promotes female empowerment of every body, changed my life.
Today, every session I am a part of is an opportunity to show women just how truly beautiful they are and to help bring out their inner confidence. Makeup is not to cover flaws, but instead to highlight the beauty that everyone uniquely possesses. And today I can say, I’m not in the beauty industry, but in the confidence industry.
