I help women who have been through traumatic situations boost confidence in themselves and believe in who they are with an empowering photo session.

Hi! It's Melissa!
I believe that all women are beautiful as their true selves. What makes a woman beautiful isn't just what's on the outside, it's honestly what's on inside that makes them epically beautiful and shine!
But in the journey to let the emotions and beauty that's inside show, it's powerful to doll up on the outside and pamper yourelf!

Why do I love shooting intimate portraits?
This is a powerful and luxurious type of photography. It’s also a very intimate type of photography. I care deeply about people and mental health. I believe that learning to love yourself is an important part of your mental health. 

I love shooting intimate portraits because this is a chance for you being in front of my camera to learn to love yourself. It's luxurious to finally be able to feel like yourself.

I love it because not only is it my opportunity to show you how amazing and strong you are but also for you to finally see yourself the way the world sees you. Confident, strong, brave, powerful and of course beautiful.

Intimate portraiture to me is more than just beautiful photos of amazing women, it is a chance to change a life and show love and support to everyone!

Hi, I'm Melissa!

Contact us to chat about your session!

Intimate Portraits are more than just sexy photos. It's about beauty, empowerment and learning to love the skin you're in. To see yourself as beautiful as you are seen in everyone else's eyes.

Intimate photography has been an artform since literally the invention of cameras. Still, there’s a bit of confusion surrounding the topic, so I wanted to take a second to dispel some myths and tell you exactly what boudoir photography is. In short: it’s a series of tasteful, artful, sensual images — usually of a woman, but sometimes of a couple or even a man.

What is Intimate Portraits?

The Journey Begins
1. Pre-Session Consultation:
We will start with a personalized consultation to understand your vision and comfort level for your session. This can be done in person, over the phone, or via video chat. We'll discuss your style preferences, outfit choices and helpful suggestions for this, and any ideas you have in mind for what you want. This is your opportunity to ask questions and express any concerns.

2. Preparing for the Shoot:
You'll receive a comprehensive preparation guide that includes tips on what to bring, how to prepare your skin, and outfit suggestions and guides to ensure you look and feel your best. We recommend setting aside some time to pamper yourself before the shoot—consider a manicure, pedicure, and hair styling to boost your confidence.

The Day of the Shoot
3. Professional Hair and Makeup:
Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by me and Stacia (your hair and
makeup artist) and then treated to professional hair and makeup. Our skilled artist Stacia will work with you to create a look that enhances your natural beauty while aligning with the style you envision while making sure you still feel like yourself.

4. Wardrobe Selection:
We’ll go through the outfits you brought and
help you choose the best options. We encourage a mix of lingerie, personal items, and any accessories that make you feel fabulous. We also have a curated wardrobe available if you need additional options.

5. The Photoshoot:
The magic happens here! Our experienced photographer will
guide you through a variety of poses and expressions, ensuring you feel comfortable and empowered every step of the way. We play your favorite music to set the mood and keep the atmosphere relaxed and enjoyable.

6. The Reveal:
After the shoot, we’ll schedule a viewing session where you can see your beautiful images. You’ll have the opportunity to select your favorite photos and decide how you’d like to preserve these memories—whether in a luxurious album, wall art, or digital collection.

"I am a fluffy gal who decided I needed to do a boudoir. I was so excited and a bit nervous to do it. I chose 2 sexy lingerie outfits and a shorts one. Melissa was amazing at making this experience fun and relaxing. I had the best time getting all beautified and sexy. Very empowering experience. Totally recommend this for anyone."
- Ms. K

"Just got done with my photo shoot with Melissa and had a blast! She was great guiding me through the different posses. I was pretty nervous going in wondering how the pictures would turn out as I'm a bigger gal but she made me feel beautiful and sexy. I would totally do this again!"
 - Ms. K

"From the first time I was in contact with Melissa she has been nothing but amazing. She has such a bubbly personality and is so encouraging through the entire experience. She knows just how to relieve the nerves that come with the shoot, make it fun, and make you feel beautiful. The entire process was comfortable and amazing from start to finish. Melissa worked with me on anything I was struggling with!"
- Ms. A

"I was pretty nervous going into my shoot, but Melissa really helped me feel comfortable. I had a blast getting to do something out of my normal. I would recommend this to anyone who has issues with self confidence. I felt beautiful in all the photos she took. she got me laughing through most of them but I felt sexy. Thank you for such a great 40th birthday gift to myself. I have struggled my whole life and today I feel more confident in myself."
