About the photographer…

Hi! I’m Melissa, your photographer, and personal boudoir guide. I’m a true creative at heart and my biggest dream as a child was to be a photographer. Never in my wildest dreams would I imagine that I’d get to also help women by being an artist, yet here I am. Born and raised in California, I’m lucky to call San Clemente my home.

I believe that all women deserve to be celebrated. As a woman myself, I understand how critical we can be of ourselves and how we often compare our bodies to others. But let’s be honest, it’s usually 24/7. The truth is, the average woman isn’t anywhere near what we see on Victoria’s Secret, yet we hold ourselves to that standard. I know I can be guilty of it myself and I know it’s unrealistic. What I have learned, though, is that through boudoir, we get to be our own REAL version of a supermodel. We aren’t doing it for anyone else but ourselves, and sure, maybe for someone special who LOVES us the way we are. I know you’ll discover how powerful it will be for you, regardless of your reason for doing a boudoir session. My dream is to share this experience with as many women as I can. I want you to experience that feeling of self-obsession and gratitude for how beautiful and capable your body is. Because #$% yes you are beautiful! Boudoir is my passion and I truly can’t wait to share this amazing experience with you!
