Guys first of all my facebook was HACKED! I have not been able to log back in despite numerous attempts. I was one of the lucky 500,000. FUN! (*insert sarcasm) So, that said if you have been freaking out because we were messaging through there you will not be able to reach me. You can use the contact form here or text/call 910-939-3450. Honestly I don’t know how long it will be until I regain access.
Second of all…can I be a little transparent? I have had THE.WORST past few months. If something could go wrong it has. Hence, why I wasn’t so surprised when I was hacked. I am sure to be the one in the bunch if it’s something bad. Two weeks ago, I went to drop off my gold car to the bodyshop because someone hit me in a parking lot. That same day I went to drop it off, driving in my white car on the way to take my mom to the hospital I was in an accident. My mom ended up being admitted for an abcess in her abdomen which was a medical mystery to all the doctors there and well…my white car TOTALED. And oddly enough I was attached to that car since I bought it when my daughter was born and intended to pass it on to my son as his first car. The kicker two weeks before that my white car had just gotten out of the bodyshop because someone had hit me in the parking lot and few months before that my gold car was sideswiped while parked and had also gone to the shop then. Anyways, back to my mom being admitted- we drove back and forth to UNC for days until she was released and now is waiting to have a major surgery and be admitted for four weeks.
After that my best friend found out she needed surgery and had surgery just yesterday. This morning, I rushed my daughter to Urgent Care because she wasn’t sounding so hot. I had taken her a few days before that and despite her sensitive medical needs the doctors dismissed me and told me “she was fine”. Fastforward to this morning again, she is so close to pneumonia that doctor said we will probably have to cancel our trip that we had planned for months. The months before that; it’s been one thing after the other, after the other, after the other; so much so that sometimes I just want to curl up in a ball and cry.
But that brings me back to these beautiful images/family. I don’t think I could stay sane without a creative outlet. Photography and meeting new people is what keeps me going. I spend a lot of time at home editing and being a homeschool mom to a teen and 9 yr old and taking care of my mom. Seriously my life is like a novel and it feels like someone is playing a never ending joke on me but that never stops me from doing what I love and most importantly loving my family. If you’re having a bad day today remember to always smile and just enjoy the things that make you happy!
I love when clients make the sessions their own. There is no need to purchase expensive lingerie. This young lady brought in what she already owned as far as lingerie and included some crop tops, flannel, and boots. Her session was amazing! Check out the last image. I am so proud to have award-winning work!
One of the things I am passionate about is fashion. For as long as I can remember I have always been drawn to styling others and of course fashion photography. I love looking through the pages of Vogue and can only dream of photographing some of those designer pieces. Working with a blogger I get a chance to meet other ladies with the passion for fashion. It's always fun seeing what bloggers bring to their session. Such beautiful and unique wardrobe pieces. This lady here is amazing; not to mention such an inspiration to my daughter who wants to pursue modeling and does her 9 year old version of blogging at the moment.

As a boudoir photographer here in North Carolina I am happy when clients come with an open mind about wardrobe. Many times I think women have a preconceived notion of what looks good on them and what doesn't. Many times what you think doesn't look good on you is actually the most flattering. My client was pleasantly surprised to see how well a bodysuit looked on her. I promise that if you come to me I will give my honest opinion about everything. It may not be what you want to hear but I only mean well. I want you to look your best especially with the type of investment you are making.
Before you come to a session with me I talk a lot about no-no's for wardrobe. My huge NO NO is baby-dolls! Very rarely are they even a little flattering. I ask my clients specifically to avoid them. That and anything with metal boning which can limit posing. Trust me, We will talk A LOT before your session! Many clients text me as they shop and I totally don't mind.
Are you ready to book but are just unsure of what will work for you wardrobe-wise? I offer a complimentary consolation with booked session. Message me with any questions and let's get you booked today!
As a boudoir photographer in the Fayetteville North Carolina area it's such a pleasure to work with so many women and I'm honored when women make the drive from other areas in North Carolina. This lovely young lady traveled from Wilmington and ROCKED her session! I always love to chat with my clients during makeup and connect with them. Ms. V and I connected over a very sensitive topic - hair loss. As many of you may know my daughter suffers from numerous medical conditions and alopecia. Hair loss is something that I am unfortunately too familiar with. Hair loss affects so many people from children to adults. The stigma of hair loss for women in particular is tough and it was great to see this young lady who happens to freelance model be extremely positive and confident. It gave me hope for my daughter. That she too can be whoever she wants to be and not let hair loss stop her!

Mrs. L had done a few boudoir sessions in the past but had been wanting to do a session with her husband after he came back from deployment. This couple's session was inspired by book covers of romantic novels and shot in my studio in Cameron, NC. (near Fayetteville and Raleigh NC) Boudoir for couples is a bit different due to the fact that the camera is not only capturing the sexy, sultry side of the woman AND man but also the connection they have. Couples that are dating or married decide on a boudoir session to either show off how deeply in love they are or to ignite that spark again.
