What they're saying

Boudoir was an entirely new experience for me. One that would normally be outside of my comfort zone, but Shanna made me feel so incredibly welcomed, and relaxed. She ensured to check in with me before the shoot to ensure I had everything I needed, and that I was comfortable. When I arrived, she was on time and greeted me with a smile. It took maybe 2 minutes into the shoot to get fully comfortable and it was seriously an experience of a lifetime. It was not only such a huge experience, but was fun. I would highly recommend her to be anyone's photographer. You will not regret it!- Jessica

I was granted with a beautiful opportunity to do a Boudoir photoshoot. She greeted me as soon as I walked through the door and took the time to get to know me. She is personable, and a breeze to be around! She is confident in what she does and she will make you feel absolutely beautiful! I’ve never felt more comfortable with a photographer besides her. If you’re contemplating on reaching out to her, just do it! I promise you won’t regret it.- Alexa 

Welcome, I'm so happy you're here. 

 I'm a northern california natural light & studio photographer specializing in maternity & boudoir. I service the sacramento, roseville, lincoln, rocklin, yuba county and surrounding areas! I can't wait to meet you!

My favorite thing to do is help empower women and shower you with the ultimate boudoir and pampering session!

I know that boudoir sessions can seem intimidating and it's absolutely normal to feel nervous. However, i promise you once you walk through that studio door, you'll want to come back for another session. the nerves ware off and the fun begins. 

we will play your favorite music, provide you with your favorite beverage, pamper you with hair and make-up and then we get to the good stuff. Capturing you in your light!!! because girl you are gorgeous, you own this and you deserve this!!! 

what to expect before, during and after your session

Your ultimate boudoir experience and lifechanging event starts with a pre-consult via phone. We will discuss inspirations and other creative ideas for your ideal shoot and get to know each other a little. we can discuss hair and make-up, wardrobe, fears and answer any questions you may have. i have a selection of wardrobe to choose from in my client closet but I also recommend you bring things you want to incorporate in your session. don't forget your heels! you can send me photos of your ideal pieces and if you'd like to purchase your own i can give my professional opinion if needed/wanted. 

finally, the big day

Your pampering session begins. You arrive at the studio, our glam squad will get started on your bombshell makeover while i set up your dream shoot. at this time we will serve you your preferred beverage and offer you some snacks!

My glam team and i will work together to create your dream look/session. I will give you professional direction on how to pose and bring that inner-vixen to life. I will also boost your womanly confidence by showing you sneak peeks of behind the camera throughout the session. 

once the session is over we will have you get dressed and head on out. In 1-2 short weeks we will set up an image reveal day and you will forever hold that long-lasting effect of your new found confidence. at this time you will  choose your favorite images and we will decide on package ordering.  I can't wait to see your face over zoom (or in person) on your image reveal day!

ready to feel sexy again? 

Listen, I know all about losing the confidence I once had and wanting to feel sexy and confident again.
