hello gorgeous!

Hi, there! I’m so glad you’re here. Welcome to my studio, where acceptance & self-love are at the heart of the experience my team & I will create for you. Here, we believe that women should be celebrated for their own unique beauty. Your time with us in the studio is a little like a luxe spa treatment, girls-day-out, gorgeous glam… and the best portraits of you ever!

My sessions are designed to be an experience where self-care & empowerment come together for an amazing photoshoot that will leave you feeling like a supermodel. Your session starts with sparkling wine or water, professional hair styling, luxurious makeup application, & wardrobe consultation. Throughout your session, I will coach & pose you so you never have to wonder what to do with your hands or what kind of smile to have. My clients call these sessions addictive. We call them necessary!

Your experience includes a little black book is wrapped in Italian leather & printed on archival pearlescent paper. Everytime you open your album, you’ll be reminded of how beautiful, unique and worthy of celebration you are.

I can’t wait to create an unforgettable photoshoot just for you!

what to


Booking a boudoir photo shoot can be extremely intimidating for many women. You’re feeling excited yet nervous because you’ve never done anything like this before and you’re probably thinking “this is so out of my comfort zone!” Every client that comes to me almost always feels exactly the way you do. I want to reassure you that you are in good hands. I have been a professional photographer since 2008 & have photographed hundreds of boudoir sessions. My sessions are designed to be totally fun, relaxed & empowering.

For your perfect day in the studio, I’ve created a luxurious and all-inclusive experience that includes:

  • A consultation to design your dream photoshoot
  • Wardrobe consultation to help you select the perfect outfits
  • Champagne or sparkling water
  • Professional makeup application and hair styling
  • Posing coaching and guidance
  • High-end retouching to polish your portraits
  • A private, password protected online gallery for viewing your portraits
  • An Italian-leather wrapped little black book custom designed by Meredith. Your album is discreetly delivered, and arrives wrapped and ready for gifting
  • Digital download of your final images delivered via email


the experience


Your session takes place at my studio, which is located in the historic Hillcrest neighborhood in Little Rock. The space offers beautiful natural light and total privacy. Street parking is available both in front of the building, as well as behind.

before the session

After we set up your shoot time, I will email you the contract to sign and an invoice to pay your first installment, a non-refundable, retainer fee in order to lock in your date.

I also offer wardrobe consultations via video chat, phone call, or text. On the day of your session, styling will begin at your session time and is done simultaneously.

during the session

It’s the day of your session! Make sure to eat a light meal beforehand (hungry clients aren’t happy clients) and drink lots of water. During your photoshoot, I will walk you through every step of the process. My stylists and I will make sure you are having the best experience possible. All you need to do is show up and trust that I know exactly how to pose you in order to show off your fiercest side. We will take breaks as needed and I will check in with you as I shoot to make sure you are comfortable and feeling good.

after the session

About 2-3 weeks after your session, I will email you with a password-protected online gallery for image viewing.

All of your finished portraits will be fully retouched and edited in both color and black and white format. My retouching techniques deliver beautifully polished portraits, but they will still be authentically you!

After viewing your proofs, as soon as you’ve selected your favorite portraits, I will personally design your album. I will email you with an online design proof before sending your album into the lab for production. Once your album has been ordered, I will email you with a download link of your digital files.

what to


The single most important consideration when you’re choosing your outfits is that you all feel comfortable and confident. I recommend that you bring at least 2 extra outfit choices. We will shoot the included number of looks in your package; however, I will always try to shoot more outfits if we have time. It’s always best to have more options than not enough! If you are unsure how something will photograph, I encourage you to bring it & I will help you choose the looks that will photograph best.

After you’ve booked, I will email with more tips on how to prepare including a Pinterest board FULL of outfit ideas and inspiration

asked questions

Do I bring my own lingerie, or do you provide the outfits?
You bring your own lingerie to the photo shoot, if you want to do a ‘white sheets’ look, I provide the sheets.

Is hair and makeup included?
Yes! My stylists’ work is exceptional. Having pro styling makes a huge difference in the end result of your images… Even a ’no-makeup’ look is best achieved with a professional!

Absolutely yes! My editing process is very thorough and includes skin retouching to remove any unwanted blemishes, scars, bruises, cellulite or stretch marks (if desired). Please keep in mind that my mission as a boudoir photographer is not to transform you unrecognizably. Instead, it’s to showcase your inner and outer beauty in a way that feels and looks naturally like you.

I assume that you will not want me to put your images on my website or social channels. However you might love them so much that you agree to let me share them – it’s up to you! Real client I mages and testimonials are so inspiring for others, so I am always THRILLED when clients allow me to share.

Can I purchase ALL of the pictures taken during my shoot?
Only the very best images will be selected for editing and final delivery, and this is where you must put your trust in your photographer. Editing is a very important part of the process, and no unedited pictures will ever be presented to the client. Don’t worry, you will have plenty fully-edited images to choose from.

Do you have payment plans?
I offer a few payment options! To book your boudoir appointment, I require a minimum of 25% deposit and a signed contract, and the balance is due 2 weeks before the date of the shoot. If you want more time to be able to pay off the shoot, you can schedule it a few months out, and pay it off in payments. Payments are recieved by CashApp, Zelle, Check or Cash.

How will I receive my photographs?
All digital files will be delivered via a private online gallery and download via email. Your album will arrive discretely packaged and will be gift-boxed.

Can I buy just the digital files?
When you book one of my sessions you are purchasing a complete experience and the digitals are included with your session and album. I do offer digital-only mini-sessions – those packages begin at $500 for 5 images and do not include styling. Mini-sessions are best suited for headshots and standard portrait sessions.
