I thought I wanted to be an opera singer. I loved standing on a stage and making people laugh (yes... opera can be very funny). And I would love to tell you I had some deep, meaningful reason to pick up a camera but the truth is I wanted to get a boy's attention. Embarrassing, I know.

Turns out that love for joyful moments found a home in photography. And spoiler alert: I got that boy's attention and he asked me to be his wife! The most wonderful surprise has been my ability to help women feel more confident and beautiful through photography and I want to do that for you too.

ALL ABOUT MICHELLE

KY BOUDOIR & WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER 

I'm MICHELLE

it's nice to meet you

KENTUCKY'S PREMIER  
BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER

Currently Booking 2020

Wooooooo girl, I feel you!! Good news is that posing is 100% my job. I will place everything from your the top of your head to the tips of your toes. I will tell you where to look and tell dorky jokes to get a really big smile! 

This is one of the reasons I LOVE that the first hour you are with me, it is hair and makeup time. It gives you a chance to relax instead of walking in the door and immediately dropping your drawers. Being nervous is totally normal, but you are going to feel damn good by the end of it! 

NEXT QUESTION

what IF I AM AWKWARD AF?

frequently asked questions

In addition to the lingerie guide I will send you, I am available to do pre-session consults with you about wardrobe.  We also have a client wardrobe!! 

We also have a super fun group on facebook called Franz with Benefits and we share all sorts of lingerie links and inspiration within the group. Maybe you hate the idea of lingerie? We can have fun styling items that are not traditional lingerie such as sweaters, jeans, tank tops, and more. 

NEXT QUESTION

Can you help with Lingerie?

frequently asked questions

Right now, duh! If you have a deadline to have your final products in hand, your session should be about six weeks before that deadline. I book up to a year in advance and many gals love to book early so they can use it as a motivator towards goals.

You can also get access to great bonuses through the BOUDIE BANK which is our pre-payment plan. 

NEXT QUESTION

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?

frequently asked questions

Get it, giiiiirrrrlll!! I often take nude portraits and they can be oh-so-beautiful! Some boudoir babes want to go this route and some do not. It is totally up to you! 

You will receive a questionnaire before your session and you can let me know what you are comfortable with. On session day, we typically start out with an outfit that feels less reveals and go from there. So do not worry. you do not have to leave your pants at the door. 

NEXT QUESTION

What about going au naturel?!

frequently asked questions

That works out well because none of the women you see me post photos of are models! These are real women who are moms, students, scientists, teachers, and so much more.

Every women deserves to be a boudoir babe and you can be next!
