I’m married to the coolest guy named Levi and I could spend the next two paragraphs raving about his wonderfulness but I’m afraid you’d fall in love. These days we spend most of our free-time trying to figure out how to turn the back of our 4-Runner into a camper, while also trying to be good parents to our cat-child, lil’ piggy.
Levi and I started working together six years ago and it was both magical and terrifying. Our business grew and grew as The Mondays until eventually, it expanded in so many good directions that we decided to focus individually on our favorite parts (including a healthy marriage). You can find his stellar commercial photography here. Ladygroove came out of a 12 year eating disorder, some powerful and hard as hell healing through PTSD, and a sexual liberation where I finally realized that sexuality is first and foremost for ourselves and then for a partner if we choose to share that. I am a WOMAN centered boudoir photographer who believes that if we empower ourselves first is the best catalyst for world change. I support women in their body acceptance journey and their celebration of being ALIVE. We've all been through some shit y'all and I believe that the simple act of celebrating ourselves through Ladygroove is worth the investment, is a radical act of self care, and is SO MUCH FUN! If you are looking to shoot boudoir as a gift then I am not a great fit for you (though I can give you some great references). If you are looking to practice playfulness, to document a season(or closing of a season) in your life, or to love your body, your sexuality, or yourself even harder then I'm your FREAKING GIRL!.
I’m brutally -- hopefully lovingly -- honest. I do my best to stay connected with the present moment and to be just as kind to myself as I am to other people. Who I am is what is reflected in my photographs. And I think that they are really, really beautiful.
