"Stripping down and being vulnerable in front of other women who are doing the same thing empowers you."
I love group events. There is just something about getting naked in front of a group of ladies, am I right?
I understand that boudoir is an investment.. I understand that it is an investment that not every woman can make, and that upsets me. I want everybody to be able to experience boudoir. I believe in the power of these empowerment sessions so much that I try to help every woman to be able to experience it, even the ones that can’t afford the luxury of it all. These events help with that! Not only is it empowering women and bringing together groups of people who would’ve normally not been brought together, it is opening your eyes to acceptance and seeing people that may not look just like you and watching them love themselves which in turn makes you accept yourself a little more... But these heavily discounted group events I feel are a need to offer clients who cannot afford that luxury of a full session just for them as well.
These events allow women to come in & feel liberated and be on a boudoir high! I always talk about boudoir highs. When you go into that session, and you’re up there and you are strutting your stuff with so much positivity being thrown at you, you feel like a star. As you should feel, YOU are the STAR. It makes you feel alive. Seen. It lights a spark inside you and gets that adrenaline going and you feel on top of the world. That feeling of confidence and being on top of the world lasts for a while, sometimes for a lifetime. A boudoir session is so much more than a photo shoot. But I digress. This was about group shoots, and bringing together like-minded individuals.
These events bring together groups of people with different bodies & ethnicities all on different walks of life all being vulnerable together. That human connection is real, and it feels good, and we need it and this chaotic world that we live in. So thank you to all the ladies over the years that have come to my events. I hope you were able to carry a little piece of the positivity from the event on with you and it brought you light in someway. I’m humbled at the fact that you came to my event and spent your precious time with me. I applaud you for being brave enough to come to an event like that, and I am forever thankful for every ounce of your support than I can even put into words.
Long story short, group events are here stay! I can’t wait for the next one. Can you?
These are all images that my clients received from the most recent group event. Tickets were $30 & they were able to take selfies on our various scenes, have a mimosa bar & some baked goods. They received a micro mini shoot & some pictures in the rain room.

About the author....
Christmas at Embrace
I am a HUGE fan of Christmas.. I love the lights, the glam & the magic. All the colors of green, red & gold.. that's my FAVORITE combination. I've never really had a space to build a holiday set & still be able to do my regular non-holiday images also until the new space.. So my husband and I created this incredible Christmas set!
The best part to me, the hot chocolate baths!
When we weren't covering ourselves in chocolate goodness, we threw all the bulbs in and threw them all around!!
We also played with some whipped cream and hot chocolate and candy canes to add a little sweetness...
And then the rain room...
Always making the best images!
We will absolutely be doing another Christmas set for next year.. I'm hooked!
Wait til you see the Valentine's Day set!
Embrace Erotica - The Why
TRIGGER WARNING - KNIFE KINK
Anytime I talk about photographing Erotica & actual sex acts, I'm asked why?
WHY? Here is why...
I love shooting Erotica. I love it for so many different reasons, but my favorite part is being able to capture you or you and your partner in your most vulnerable state & being able to show you how amazing you are in a different way... a way that no one is allowed to talk about or its frowned upon to express...
Your Sexual Way
We always start slow.. We start clothed and then we start taking them off.. Whether is a couple shoot or solo shoot, we start this way to ease into the shoot and try to calm the nerves..
I know this type of shoot isn't for everyone, and that is totally ok, but Sexuality is beautiful. That is as close as you can be to your partner or as intimate as you can be with yourself...
There is nothing better than feeling someones love for you while being connected from the inside & taking charge of your body and sexuality and expressing it.. Even if these images are just for you & not a partner, its an exhilarating experience and you will gain a new sense of self from it..
I learn a lot about sexuality from my clients.. We discuss kinks and things of that nature, and I'm introduced to new things all the time.
This specific couple enjoys cutting.. I've never heard of it before but the images from it are spectacular. The sensation of the pain mixed with the pleasure & the passion that emerges from this kink is intense.
These sessions are personal & private, and are not shared or seen by anyone other than you and me UNLESS a release is signed. I am very lucky to have some of my clients allow me to share my art with the world, and that is exactly what this is. My art....
Sex is beautiful to me. I love the intimacy and vulnerability that is shown in my Erotica images. I am drawn to the emotion, the REAL emotion in play in these images. I want to capture a photo where you can look at it and can immediately feel how the subject felt, and Erotica makes that a possibility.
Toys are always welcome.
I don't provide any toys or kinks for Erotica sessions.. You would bring your own things from home to keep this as personal & real life for you as possible..I will NEVER judge you, but if there is a danger aspect to your kink, please discuss it with me first so I can be sure that we are all comfortable & safe during your session.
If you've never used a butt plug, or have had extreme nipple play or have been into bondage, an Erotica session is not the time to try that. We want you to be as comfortable as possible & capture real emotions with a familiar touch...
An Erotica shoot is all inclusive... Meaning you will receive all your images for a flat fee. Payment needs to be made in full before your session, but we can do a payment plan for you to be able to have it paid by the time we do your session!
If you'd like products from your shoot as well, you can order those directly from me, but I felt that there is a story being told & you need all the images from start to finish to show your story of sexuality... That is why I decided to make this type of session all inclusive.
If you'd like to book, the booking link is below! You can also check out the Erotica gallery on my website and send in a contact form to set up a payment plan & schedule your session.
