An Intimate Portraiture Studio

Intimate portraiture, sometimes called “boudoir”, is all about feeling confident, empowered and beautiful. My clients come to me to create artful, sensual, fun images that capture their own unique beauty in a fun environment where they can be themselves, be respected and feel confident without judgement.Whether you call it boudoir photography or intimate portraiture, planning a photo shoot like this is exciting. A lot goes into it, and while it is fun, you might be a little nervous (most people are) and you likely have tons of questions. Most of our clients started their journey just like you.Krista and I are always open to take your questions so please don’t hesitate to reach out. Text, email, even (yes your mobile device does this) call us. You also might find it helpful to download our Dream Shoot Planner - it’s a free guide covering lots of common questions.

Client Experiences

I am based in Saratoga Springs, NY. My studio space is in nearby Ballston Spa, NY. My 1,300 square foot studio is purpose built for boudoir, with multiple sets, looks, props and themes. We have a dedicated hair and makeup area and image viewing area for you to review your images after the shoot.

If you live outside of the capital district, or would like to shoot on location, I am available to travel with a fully portable studio setup. Contact me so we can discuss travel requirements and location information.
Your albums and wall art will be produced on the highest quality materials by one of the nation's finest labs and delivered to you in beautiful, elegant, protective packaging so your images will last for years to come.

We will review your images together shortly after your photo shoot so you can select your favorites and order your album and wall art. Once ordered, your favorite images will also be available through our password protected, private portal for 2 years after your shoot with extended time available free of charge.

My philosophy when it comes to pricing is simple: Be upfront, fair and ensure there are no surprises. There are two components to your total investment: Your photo session plus your portrait collection - whether that is an album, book or prints. You may purchase as many or as few of the images we create.

I encourage you click to receive my Dream Shoot Planner which has my pricing and packages listed, and please reach out to me with any questions.

I have been making images for more than 30 years both in, and out of the studio. Introduced to photography by my Grandfather who let me shoot my first images with his Leica IIIg when I was only 11 years old and inspired today by an amazing woman who is my partner and world renown documentary / fine art photographer.
