"i'm not beautiful like you, i'm beautiful like me"

For the last 7 years, I have been empowering women to build their confidence and change the way they see themselves with my Boudoir, Glamour and Pin-Up photography experiences. I operate a 'body positive studio', located in the heart of downtown Bremerton, and I believe that every woman is beautiful and is worthy of existing in photographs. 

In order to give my clients the BEST experience and my full attention, I only take a limited number of clients per month. 

This is what you can expect from the Beautiful Like Me Experience

1. The initial consultation - I want to get to know you and I want to know your struggles. What do you want to get out of this experience? This questionnaire will help me prepare for our first initial conversation. I prefer to chat with you on the phone so that I can really <listen> to your story, your needs, your ideas, etc.... 

2.  The "What to Wear" Meeting: If we are a good fit, you can book your shoot right over the phone, and then I will invite you to my studio for a custom wardrobe consultation. I have entire wardrobe that clients love to borrow from. Knowing what to wear is something that I don't want you to stress about. I can also come to your home and help you select your pieces. 

3. The prepping: You can expect to receive regular emails from me with tips for a successful photo shoot, overcoming your negative thoughts... the gremlins... that might be telling you that you aren't good enough, you need to lose weight first, etc... Just so you know... the gremlins (aka your inner mean girl) are LIARS. 

4. The shoot! Getting pampered with professional hair and makeup will help you achieve a new found confidence. We will photograph you in about 4 different outfits. It will be fun. Music. Laughing. Coffee. It will be amazing. 

5. The Reveal. Waiting to see your images will be the hardest part. I take my time and hand edit about 30-40 images for you to see in print. It takes me about 2 weeks to edit and have your images printed and delivered. You are welcome to bring someone special with you to your reveal. At this moment, you can select your favorite images to be delivered in the product of your choice. 

The Final thing you can expect is... a bit more confidence. A new light shining within. A little giddy-up in your step. A new perspective about body image. A smile that will light up the room. A noticeable difference within yourself.

Here are some things my clients had to say when I asked them: 

"How did your Beauty Experience impact your life? Your relationships?"

"I think that my experience made more self confident and assured. I feel more, well, sexy than I ever did before, and it exudes outward."
"I felt a level of confidence doing the shoot that I did not expect. My husband loved me surprising him with it."
"It was amazing! I had so much fun and was actually blushing when my boyfriend saw the photos and was commenting on them at the reveal"
"I did my Shoot as an anniversary gift for my husband. I was so nervous if he would like it. He was in shock. He said he was proud of me for having the courage to do something out of my comfort zone. And it really put a new spark into our almost 28 year relationship."
"I have become more confident in myself. I have always thought of myself fat, even when I wasn't. I no longer want to be "skinny" I want to be healthy and happy."


Are you ready to have the experience of a lifetime?
