...the founder and creative behind Ethereal. My love of photography started back in 2008 and has grown exponentially ever since. I have been inspired by so many artist, and my goal is to inspire you.
When I was younger (20's), my idea of boudoir was always about being sexy, having the "perfect" figure, and showing my partner that yes, I too, can be like this. But it was that very idea that prevented me from ever doing boudoir. I placed these unrealistic expectation on myself, I hid away, and never thought about it again.
As I got older, I realized our bodies do not fit into a certain set of standards. Having two kids morphed my body into something my 20-year-old self wouldn't understand (or appreciate), but I love it more now than I ever have before. The wonders of a changed mindset!
I want to deliver beautiful, tasteful, and artistic photos to you, but most importantly I want to change the narrative behind boudoir and change the mindset of the beautiful women out there too hesitant to try.
Boudoir is such an intimate form of photography, that the only way for it to truly work is to have trust between client and photographer. My goal during sessions is to make you feel free and in tune with your body and the only way to get there is through trust. That is why I’m always happy to “grab coffee” to help start build this relationship with you.

This is a safe space. You are welcomed to be your amazing, beautiful self.
I value you and will treat you accordingly.
Last but not least, you deserve a quality service and product. My goal is to make sessions worthwhile, and for you to look back on and appreciate this time spent focusing on you.
