Stepping in front of the Lens

Some of you may remember Marecel, she used to be one of my makeup artists! That is, before she got on with the film industry full time. She is one of the most genuinely, sweet people I have had the pleasure to call my friend. You can imagine how excited I was when she booked herself an intimate lifestyle boudoir...

Overcoming self doubt with Intimate Couple’s Boudoir.

Overcoming self doubt with Intimate Couples Boudoir Jessica and I have been together for almost 5 years now. In that time I have become a feminist.

Colour VS Black & White Debate – Maple Ridge Abbotsford Boudoir Photographer

Colour VS Black & White When clients come in they are presented with both colour and black&white versions of each of their final edited images.

I even find myself torn between one or...
