I’m saying F U to the “New Year, New You.”


2020 has had its trials and come 11:59PM on December 31st I am sure you will be among those hoping 2021 will offer a better outlook. Yet, somehow this year, despite all its differences, many will fall into the habit and make resolutions to be “new” and improved in some way. Oaths to save, travel…

Finding Gratitude


In our effort to put 2020 behind us and ring in 2021, the holidays may seem even more important. Jack o’ lanterns have quickly been replaced with wreaths, and holiday music is on repeat. It’s almost easy to overlook Thanksgiving in the rush toward the end of the year, but I invite you to slow…

That’s What She Said: Marissa


I wasn’t a stranger to Mirrored Images; I have friends who are ambassadors of the brand; heck, I’ve even modeled for their Shameless collection. However, I never thought I could or would book an actual session. I always made the excuse of the costs, but would quickly find myself spending the same…

If you are like me and have given seconds to google a new product, watch a pet video or explore a travel destination, your social feeds become flooded with sponsored ads enticing you to make your slight interest a purchase reality. Normally, I scroll past. I don’t have time to fill out another…

Selfish Isn’t a Bad Word


To be a woman in today's world you need to be a three-ring circus act.  A juggler for your daily responsibilities, a contortionist for your evening show, and if you are a mom, you can add on an entire tent to your troupe.

24 must have Amazon finds!


  When I opened the studio 3 years ago I had no lingerie, no shoes, no accessories.  Over the years I've collected items for client sessions because, let's be real, lingerie shopping can be a daunting task.  I tell our clients not to spend money on lingerie, jewelry or shoes unless they plan…

In the three years that our studio has been open we've had hundreds of beautiful clients come through our doors; most walk in nervous, unsure, anxious, and with no experience of being in front of a camera.  Our goal is to provide each client with a life changing experience that will allow them to…

Show Off Your Sexy


Is your house missing something?  Is your wall decor dated and/or impersonal?  We're all guilty of "it"... buying a placeholder to put on the wall so it didn't look bare and telling yourself when you find something better you'll update it.  But, 5 years later it's still there and you may not even…
