Destination Boudoir Photography - The Power of Wild Women

“Wild woman are an unexplainable spark of life. They ooze freedom and seek awareness, they belong to nobody but themselves yet give a piece of who they are to everyone they meet. 
If you have met one, hold on to her, she'll allow you into her chaos but she'll also show you her magic.” 
― Nikki Rowe

Well, I ran away with the circus. Again. Only this time I was part of the team – teaching, photographing, and sharing knowledge with the residents in Nicaragua. It was an entirely different experience to be working and hustlin’ while also sipping Pina Coladas on a beach in between aerial jams, yoga, and sacred clowning workshops. I went with the intention I always carry with me everyday: make good art. Oh, and did we ever accomplish that in my collaborative shoot with Lauren.

Lauren is one of those women you meet and you just go: d a m n. She has so much fire within her, and she exudes that into the world to help curate her dream life, and to help others do that for themselves. She is another woman who really embodies the narrative of lifting others while we climb. I saw so much of the mantras I hold dear to my heart reflected back in hers. Self love. Growth. Persistence. Celebration of self + others. Divine femininity. She embodies all of this and so much more… it was no surprise that by the end of her stay with Momentom I was asking the universe to bring our paths back together so we could continue creating art and hopefully changing lives. This dynamo babe is a yogi, and a healer through her retreats and workshops – if you’re not already falling head over heels in love with her, saunter over to her website and let the falling commence.

So here it is: the first of hopefully many collaborations with this powerhouse and divine wild woman.

Thank you for sharing space with me, waking up at the crack of dawn, and creating good fucking art together. Love you babe!

Victoria BC Boudoir Photography - Surround Yourself with Artistry

This amazing babe found me through a mutual friend and co-conspirator: the wonderful Alison (my hair and makeup artist extraordinaire!) As a dear friend of such an incredible artist, I was not surprised to fall in love with this woman’s equally badass energy, attitude, and talent. She showed up to my studio, threw open a GIANT bag of lingerie, and Alison and I just both melted on the spot.

I will never stop falling head over heels for people that commit themselves to earnestly to their craft. That create from the heart, adore their art, and become art themselves because of it. This woman is just that: art and passion incarnate. Thank you so much for entrusting me to capture these images with you Kirsten!

Everyone should go checkout this babe’s Instagram because her tattoo work is unreeeaal:

Without further ado!
