Oh Hey Girl.

I’m so incredibly nervous to share this post with you all today! It’s rare that I start a project and keep it under wraps for SO long haha. But that same nervousness is also full of excitement because I just know you all are going to love what I have in store for you.

I got started out in this business of weddings and planning way back when in 2009 where I was primarily a stylist. I put a set together, I styled the models and I literally posed everything and even advised the photographers on the shots that I was envisioning and how best to capture this detail and that. I was styling ALL the time and I loved it. But then business really picked up and I was working real weddings almost every weekend. I am so incredibly grateful for that, don’t get my wrong. But a part of me, missed that stylist element to my early career. So when my dearest friend, Kathrina (of Joe+Kathrina) and I were gabbing over lunch about our businesses and things we would love to pursue within them, the topic of boudoir came up… we were both a little like, “umm eww, no.”

Then something awesome happened. It happens with us a lot. Because, we’re pretty much the same person. We started talking a million miles a minute (and sometimes just totally talking over each other) about all the reasons we don’t like boudoir.. and how we would approach it differently, and how we saw a gap in this huge market that wasn’t being filled. Where are the photos of real girls, being awesome, and doing real things (drinking coffee, cuddling up on the couch, etc) in their undies? Not the photos of the uncomfortable lingerie, which let’s face it, we don’t really wear in real life anyways. Not the photos that are over edited and airbrushed so they are practically unrecognizable. Not the photos of a bra and stilettos and nothing else. I mean, really?

It was then that I think a light bulb went off in both of us that was like, “we can totally do this.” We wanted to created an atmosphere of loving each other and our bodies. All the different shapes, sizes, and colors that we are. Not what we think we should be. Do you wear this kinda stuff in the morning? No. Okay, then don’t pose in it. Be you. And let’s love it!

Oh Hey Girl.

This is so much more than a boudoir shoot for you.

This is more than just vanity and showing us some skin. It’s about being united as females, encouraging each other and being comfortable in our own skin. It’s about saying I AM ME & I AM GOOD ENOUGH. Because guess what, you ARE!

We are making it a whole experience.  Bringing women together to encourage and to be unapologetically confident

This isn’t to be secretive, it’s part nerves and part playing Curiosity that lured the cat. So come on, you know want to.

  1. Woo! So into this. I did a similiar styled boudoir shoot last year and gave the prints to my husband for our 1 year anniversary. He was blown away. And I had SO MUCH FUN.
