"If you, like me, have been wanting to do a boudoir shoot but keep putting it off because your skin isn’t looks so flawless or you’re a little heavier than you think is “ideal” I promise you— you’re so wrong. You’re beautiful the way you are and Ashley and her boss lady squad will get you looking and feeling your best!!! Need help with outfits? She’s got suggestions for days. Need help with confidence? Trust me she’ll tell you how wonderful you look in your most vulnerable state; 1/2 naked in front of a stranger?!?! Don’t worry! I promise, she’ll make you feel flawless and give you direction and coaching to let your best self come forth. She’s a friggin’ miracle worker and it made it SO hard to pick just 25 images for a book. Do it for you. Now. Stop putting off the self love. You are a beautiful creature now.

*side affects include: your man making 😍heart eyes at you when you show him a sneak peek. Increase in self confidence. Feeling like Queen Bey. 💁🏼‍♀️"

What Exactly is Boudoir?

It is an empowering celebration of your femininity, sensuality, and beauty! This will mean different things to different people. Boudoir isn't JUST about lingerie or JUST a gift for your significant other. It can be those things, but it is mostly about you and what makes YOU feel sexy, beautiful, worthy and restored.

For some, that is lingerie, but it can be big t-shirts or sweaters all the way down to implied/full nudity. Your session is 100% tailored to YOU.

I AM IN LOVE WITH MY BODY AND MYSELF EVER SINCE DOING MY SHOOT.

"I’ve never been a very open person. I’m not super shy, but I’m definitely not a person to show off my body. I get embarrassed just wearing lingerie around my fiancé. I cover myself up and hide basically. I did a boudoir photo shoot with Ashley as a wedding present and I cannot say it enough, cannot say it loud enough, cannot offer enough praise to her for how much she helped my confidence. To be completely honest, she made me want to show myself off. I cannot stress enough how much you need to do a boudoir session with Ashley to give you the confidence boost. She has a way of making you feel more beautiful than anyone else on the planet."

About your photographer

COME ON THIS JOURNEY WITH ME. I PROMISE YOU WON’T REGRET IT.

I am a wife to a wonderful, hardworking, and supportive husband, Aaron, and we’ll celebrate our 6th anniversary this December! I am also a momma to a beautiful, adventurous, and wild two (almost three) year old girl.

I am not the woman who wants to capture a rigid pose in front of a camera. I am the photographer who wants to document your pure beauty, your worth, and genuine emotions.

I live to capture the laughter, the love, the tears, and the lives in front of my lens that are real, authentic, and worthy.

I am an adventurer, addicted to coffee, tacos, cupcakes, and all that life has to offer.

I am a creative artist. I am passionate, and believe that no dream is impossible to reach. No goal is too far away. No moment in time is too tiny to be left untold.

As a boudoir photographer, I strive to empower, instill confidence, and to find beauty in every moment.

You see, I have struggled with my own body image. I have struggled with feeling beautiful and empowered. I battled postpartum depression and anxiety, and I have scars that tell a profound story.

I have stretch marks, and I am at my heaviest weight yet, but you know what?!? I have found beauty in my story, I have found worth in who I am, and I am proud to be the woman I am today. I am passionate and loving; I am giving and empowered. I am fierce, and strong. And I am worthy.

I write all this to say that you are too. YOU ARE WORTHY of loving yourself despite physical flaws. You are worthy despite what your past tells you. You are beautiful despite what others say.

Because I see it, I know it, and I will empower you to live it.

Welcome to Boudoir Haven Studio

Your Experience

I have a studio located in the Plaza District of NW Oklahoma City where your session will take place.

When you first walk in, you will sit in the makeup chair and Andrea and/or Jessie (my AMAZING hair and makeup artists) will start working with you on your hair and makeup look. It's totally up to you how you want to be styled. If you have no idea, they will do something based on the outfits you bring with you to your session (I recommend 2-3 different outfits and some high heels). This will take about 90 minutes.

After hair and makeup, we will look at your outfits and decide on which one you'll wear first. Once you've changed, we will begin shooting. After the first outfit, all of my clients start feeling more sexy and confident. We typically start with the least revealing outfit and work our way down so that it gives you some time to get more comfortable. Most women end up nude for their last "outfit", but that is not required. Your session will be about an hour to an hour and a half long.

Once we finish your session, I will edit your gorgeous images and will let you know as soon as your gallery is ready for a reveal which is usually 2-3 weeks after your session!

Lastly, my FAVORITE part: the Viewing and Ordering. This is where you get to see your images for the very first time (this can be a very emotional experience for some women) and you will decide HOW you want your beautiful images displayed. I give the options of a leather album in different sizes, a leather heirloom photo box, as well as canvases and prints. I also have three different Collections to choose from for digital packages. This will take about 30-60 minutes.

What Should I wear?

There is absolutely no right or wrong when it comes to outfits for your boudoir sessions! Here are a few examples of what past clients have worn

Remember! This is an opportunity to bring out your inner sexy! Don't be afraid to try on something you think you'd never wear, you may just fall in love! Anything with open backs, deep v necks, crop tops, etc. are all good options! Cardigans are perfect for this style of session because you can stay covered and be just enough uncovered as well! Below are a few places to shop!
