Blonde, Beautiful, Joyful || Boudoir Session || Kansas City, MO Boudoir Photography

When you are used to being a cosplayer, it can be tricky to step in front of the camera as yourself. I'd say that she nailed it! I love that we were able to capture so much of the joy that filled this session.

This session was all about celebrating the client's gorgeousness without any costumes to detract from her own beauty. Oftentimes it seems as though boudoir has to be sexy or nothing; but why can't it also be joyous and filled with laughter and fun?! 

That being said, there is something so amazing to the sexy shots that we found together - look how amazing and confident she is!

I'd say what made this session so incredible was that we were able to shoot exactly who she is; joyful, beautiful, confident, and sexy. Let boudoir show who you are as a person - and let me show you how incredible you are!

"The canvas is hanging on the wall opposite my bed, and is the first thing I see in the morning. It fills me with joy like I can't describe. It is THE THING that completes the sacred space of my bedroom.” - Frankie, on her prints from the session

Frankie booked a session with me to celebrate her 30th birthday - what an amazing idea, by the way! I love that she wanted to enter the next stage of her life by taking such a bold step to celebrate her own power and joy. 

I LOVE the images that we were able to capture - and what they meant for Frankie!

I am OBSESSED with the images from her bubble bath that we captured! Frankie was the inspiration to spice up my standard bathtub game with a substitution of bubbles for the standard milkbath.

In case anyone was wondering, after various tests, we discovered the best bubbles out there: Transformer's orange-scented children shampoo and conditioner from Save-A-Lot!

An incredible ending to an incredible session - thank you, Frankie!

Jessica || Boudoir Portrait || Kansas City, MO Boudoir Photography

I knew as soon as Jessica came into the studio that we would be in for an amazing session! 

What I love most about my session with Jessica is the joy you can see written across her face in every shot! From silly, to sensual, she was so full of loveliness, you can't help but smile back!

Jessica, thank you for an amazing session! 

No makeup, Natural Beauty Boudoir Sessions || Kansas City, MO Boudoir Photography

Celeste responded to my call for women who were willing to be photographed without any makeup on. I know this can be tricky for women who are used to wearing makeup on a daily basis, or even for women who don't usually wear makeup, but who would prefer professional hair and makeup to become "photo-ready." (I get it, because I generally want to wear some makeup when I'm being photographed too!)

But what I love about these sessions is that there's nothing to hide behind. Instead of focusing on the blush on your cheeks, or the rosy lipstick on your lips, I get to focus on the authentic giggles, the moments of pure joy. I get to know the raw energy of a person, and then let that show in the photographs that we make together.

If you'd like to book a no-makeup boudoir mini-session (these sessions take about 30 minutes start to finish!), let me know ASAP so we can squeeze you in!

Celeste is so beautiful, with and without makeup. The moment when she jumped on the bed brought out such extreme joy that I just about couldn't handle myself. I think I squeaked or yelled or shouted something, in fact, while she was jumping. I am not great at keeping my cool when I'm excited, but oh well! This is what boudoir is about.

Celeste, thank you for trusting me to make these photos of you, especially when you were out of your comfort zone, and not sure about being photographed without makeup. I love what we found together, and I can't wait to photograph you again soon!

Angela // Modern Glamour Portraits in Savannah, GA

Angela has one of the best laughs I have ever heard. Her voice, full of joy and laughter, carried up the stairwell from the first moment I opened the door. I don't think we stopped cracking each other up in the entire modern glamour session, except to pause long enough to make photos like this one. This woman is fierce: a strong mother and wife, and an extraordinary person. Angela stepped away from the chaos of day-to-day life, got pampered by Royal Makeup & Hair, and showed me the sassiest, most empowered side of herself. Thank you for sharing yourself with me, Angela. I had the best time working with you here in my Savannah studio!

And I love that I get to see my clients again when they come to pick up the images they purchased. Best ever, that we connect so deeply during the session, and then it's not over. We get to play again! Thank you for sharing yourself with me, Angela. I had the best time working with you here in my Savannah studio!


SJ || Modern Glamour Portraits || Savannah, GA

Are you ready for the sparkliest, gold sequin dress, and the longest, most gorgeous brown hair? Oh, and a gal who knows how to rock out while we run around The Starland District? Yes please.

Megan Jones and I were fortunate to have access to costume rentals from Acme Costumes in Garden City (this place reminds me so much of Dallas and Co in Champaign, it's not even funny). They have such a wide range of beautiful pretties to rent, and I have to say, they made our photoshoot complete. There we're lace dresses, poofy tulle skirts, corsets, and sequin dresses in gold and turquoise, among other things. Be still, my heart. Needless to say, we didn't grab any of the clown wigs or grape costumes... That would have been a different sort of glamour shoot for sure...! 

SJ, thanks for coming out to play! I'm sorry for how you ended up getting parked in, but I'm glad we got an extra chance to chat after we finished photographing you! xoxo


Creative Professional Headshots || Savannah, GA empowerment photography

There's been lots going on behind the scenes here at KFP… And I couldn't be more excited to share a couple of images from one of my most recent photoshoots with you! Here's a little sneak peek of what's to come. Lauren is a freelance graphic designer based in Kansas City, MO. And she's one of the most talented people I know. (She even made my logo!) 

I can't wait to share more images from her session soon. xoxo!
