Panama City Beach Boudoir Studio

Often times when I book a boudoir session, one woman is looking for something for herself, maybe a gift for a significant other, or maybe just to feel good and get some pampering! This was a beautiful gift for her husband, but one of her closest friends also booked a session for her husband too! A great way to make a girls’ day together, and do something to help with the nerves. I honestly think it’s great to be a little nervous in front of the camera, it helps with directing poses! So here’s a few of my favorites from our session together and also an album and way to showcase the portraits below! you can also follow the makeup artist and hairstylist Stacy! all her info is below! she’s fabulous!

Giving myself Permission to add to the conversation

I stopped the personal posts for a while. Not because I didn’t have anything to say.. as if that could ever happen. But I had to rearrange my mindset. In the midst of the many changes going on here in Panama City Beach both personal and professionally, it took a toll on my mind. I had to get back to the place where I gave myself permission to add to the conversation again. Of all the advice and opinions from experience, books, and growth I started to lose the permission I gave myself to give advice to you. I recently read a little quote “i’m a contributor not a guru” and in its simplicity I felt compelled to write again. I felt ABLE to write again. 31, divorced, no kids, I may not have some of the same experiences. But moving across country alone, starting over, confidence, finances, business building, self-worth, and LOTS of learning has given me insight that for some reason I took away from myself. I may not be taking the same path as you (but man all of our lives are vastly different anyway!) and I really do love the life i’m designing.. yes DESIGNING myself. I have four jobs and building a business and a name here in a new place, but today on my lunch break I went out to the pool. It’s those small things that I always wanted. It’s not at all how I imagined it, it’s better. Currently sitting in my big comfy bed in between other work tasks, and so incredibly thankful that I can sit here and say the difficulties lead me where I am, and i’m happy.

mindset is everything- Panama City blog

We can all love our lives. isn’t it wonderful that each of us can have a little secret of happiness that the life we’re living is the one for us. I love where I am, what i’m doing, and although it’s been difficult, i’m giving myself permission again to add to the conversation. I have a lot more to learn, but these past few years have filled me with a lot of knowledge and experience.

Secret to success no matter what it is?- it’s mindset. You may have difficult days, hard months, or even years. But your mindset will push you through. “Fear is normal, understandable and inevitable.. but it’s not a good excuse to stop pursing your designed life.” (Denise Duffiled- Thomas)

panama city beach wedding

There’s something so beautiful about beach weddings, especially here in Panama City Beach. Emerald coast, white sands, ugh I just love it! I had the afternoon with this lovely couple thanks to The Wedding Shop (if you are doing any events or a destination wedding in the area, I can’t recommend them enough!) Gathering with your closest family and friends to celebrate a marriage, and what a fun getaway in a little condo on the beach!

Here’s a few from our time together!

Minnesota Winter Engagement Session

Just a day before a big snow storm in Minnesota, we were lucky enough to get some 20 degree engagement session weather in Rochester. I absolutely adore this couple, and love Brooke’s big smiles around Mitch and how sweet they are together. And they were up for pushing through the snow to get to some of the most gorgeous of spots! (and thanks to my assistant Greg for making foot paths.) Their wedding is this summer, and i’m SO excited for the big day! Congratulations again Brooke and Mitch!

just a few favorites from our session together!

Panama City Beach Florida Studio Boudoir

There are so reasons I love boudoir photography. One is the amount of time spent with amazing women!- Hearing their story while they get their makeup done, and connecting with who they are while photographing them. This fabulous woman was an absolute blast. Her and a friend of hers both came in for boudoir sessions as a surprise gift to each of their husbands. Of course, the experience and feeling sexy before presenting the gift to a significant other is even better.Here’s just a few of my favorites from our Panama city beach studio session.
