(and just f*cking do one already).

Do you love seeing others in boudoir photos but think you could never look that good? Pfft…I’ll help you with that. Chances are good you won’t recognize the person you see in the photos. In the best way of course.

My skills match women who believe one or more of the following:

✔ Feel like they aren’t ‘photogenic’ (not a real thing by the way)
✔ Has huge worries or hatred for a certain body area (i.e belly, bewbs, butt) and the disgust is so bad it’s the reason to NOT to do a shoot
✔ Feel they’re too awkward or incapable of looking sexy
✔ Consider themselves too old, fat or just not worthy enough 

Lucky for you, you have me! I’m here to set you up for success. I don’t expect you to have experience. Watch me, I’ll show you how to do everything!

You don’t need to walk in the door oozing with self-confidence, we’re used to dealing with that.

You’ve made a commitment to yourself, to that bad ass woman inside of you that’s been waiting to get out. Our commitment is to deliver that to you.

Do you have a love/hate relationship with your body?

It happens to all of us. 

You wage a war with the mirror and don’t walk away until you’ve knocked yourself down a few pegs. 

Not here. This is a place you can stop worrying about your belly or whatever it is you’re hung up on. It’s MY job to deal with all that and make sure we’re getting great images for the camera. Your job is to just show up. 🙂

does any of this


I’ll book a shoot when…

….I Lose Some Weight
….Life Gets Less Hectic
….I Have a Reason to Celebrate 

Or any other myriad of reasons your brain comes up with?

Just chiming in here, letting you know you’re ALWAYS worth celebrating! The timing won’t always be perfect but what if you had someone like me show you that those same beautiful bits you’ve grown to loathe have some likable characteristics? Say goodbye to  insecurity and hello to a badass woman that appreciates her body more!

Posing instruction

Most people don’t hang alone in their bedroom while sticking their butt in the air (well, maybe some do). I know how to pose, you don’t. Just follow my direction and it’ll be fine.

I’ve been working with amazing women like you for the past 10 years, and here’s my ‘why’ I’m in this line of work…

Simply put… I CAN RELATE. I know what it’s like to want nice photos of myself, while not feeling great about my body. I also know what it’s like to make that commitment to do a shoot where the photographer made zero effort to make me feel more comfortable and/or just shouted commands at me.

Yelling things like “Make your face better!” was not only a WTF for me in regards to direction, but didn’t make me feel so hot.

Aaaaannnnd…. do you think the photos turned out well from a shoot like that btw? NOPE! They looked like sh*t!

A person’s COMFORT at a shoot matters. Above all else. If you’re not feeling good at a shoot, the greatest makeup, wardrobe and lighting won’t save you.

There’s no Photoshop method or filter to fix it either. I know, I’ve looked. 🙂


We could try to convince you on this all day, but why not hear it straight from other women?


Yep, it’s in a house…

…the whole top floor to be exact. My husband and I purchased a 120 year old Victorian home in 2021 specifically so I could shoot Boudoir in the MOST GORGEOUS light imaginable. No joke, I’ve been around and lighting matters.

When you book, there are different sets you can choose from and make the shoot about YOU and YOUR STYLE. Want a wet look?  We can do that. Want a light and airy feel? There’s a room that is all white. You like it dark and moody? Got a room for that too.

“Trish is amazing. She has a super power of bringing out your inner badass, during your time with her. I walked away from my photo shoot feeling so confident and when I need a self esteem boost I pull out my photos. She is very skilled at her craft and is able to put you at ease as soon as you meet her. You will not be disappointed in the experience or the product. So looking forward to my next shoot with her.”
