This summer I teamed up with my friend Adrienne from the Wedding Studio to plan and photograph a styled wedding. Our models were Sarah Knuth and her husband Kent. Sarah is a photographer herself and known here in Indianapolis through her modeling for the local clothing store Dottie Couture. I was really happy to have her and get to know her. She is just as amazing as you think she would be! We kept it pretty simple. Just both of them in the enchanted woods, her in an amazing dress and some flowers.

Bodysuits! In all forms and shapes, for all forms and shapes! The amazing thing about bodysuits ?! If you are super concerned about your midsection or arms a bodysuit is perfect in hiding those things you might be uncomfortable about. <3
Boudoir - does not always mean in underwear or half naked. You can do this YOUR way. However YOU feel the most comfortable . Remember, it's all about YOU. I love those cozy styles for fall. With a cup of coffee maybe ? :)

This is Morgan. My hair and make up artist. Well, one of them. She does amazing work and I just love her style. Here she tells you just a little bit about the Makeup she is wearing !
I often get asked what my favorite products are, especially from MAC.
To give a little background , I have worked for the company on and off for years, and still pop up at the Indianapolis counters as a freelancer from time to time.
Their products are always my go to and hardly ever disappoint.
On that note , my favorite products of ..ALL TIME.. Are from the Mickey Contracter collection. This is an old school collection created with Micky, who is known for creating stunning Bollywood Beauty.
For Indian , Middle Eastern and Mediterranean ladies these colors, and ones similar are must-haves for a beautiful exotic look.

When I had my boudoir and glamour shots taken, I was extremely scared and self conscious. I had a baby about 9 months prior so I still felt like I was carrying extra baby weight in all the wrong places. The day of my shoot, I was so nervous! Walking in to the studio, Jasmin made me feel at ease. While shooting, she reassured me that the pictures had a nice shape, or that she loved my facial expression. Her reassurance made me feel so much more confident that the outcome would be good. Instead of leaving feeling worried or embarrassed, I was excited and anxious to see the pictures! When Jasmin sent me the first sneak peak, I didn't know who it was at first. The woman in the picture was seductive, soft, and so feminine! For a woman who had spent the past year being miserably pregnant and then caring for my newborn, I didn't even know how to tap in to that side of me anymore. It felt good to feel attractive again. And the pictures were still me. They weren't photoshopped to make me perfect but she captured the best angle for my body and the best facial expressions. This is my second time working with Jasmin and each time I have been blown away. I love working with her and I love that she guides me through the photo shoot so the outcome will be amazing. Jasmin is a talented photographer but she also has the wonderful skill of empowering her clients throughout the experience. Jasmin is someone I highly recommend to others!
Inspire, motivate, and grow. Three things that I strive to pursue in my everyday life and throughout my modeling career. When I first started modeling (freelance), I was confident. I looked at models that were a smaller size than me and thought I can look just like that. I did, through Photoshop. I had a misguided view of what I really looked like.
It wasn't until I decided to get with an agency. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of the LModelz agency. I spoke with Leslie of what was expected of me and my journey. To my surprise, she told me I needed to get a little 'curvier.' What?!? I was shocked because I had worked so hard losing weight and working out everyday to be what I assumed all photographers wanted. It wasn't until I was requested for a shoot with Jasmin that I realized my true journey.
Jasmin set up a shoot specifically for myself and my other curvy model sister, Marie. I arrive at the shoot and immediately knew this collaboration was going to be something so special. We both immediately appreciated and understood the fact we almost needed each other. Her excitement for representing the curvy woman was so contagious. I was so thankful for her inspiration and knew this was going to be a shoot that meant so much for me and other women.
As we are setting up for the shoot, Megan (HMUA), Jasmin, and I start jamming out to some music, telling our life stories, and really just vibing. I was so comfortable, I almost forgot I still had to shoot. As hair and makeup came to an end, I was getting anxious to shoot.
Prior to Jasmin, I was only used to shooting 'sexy' lingerie. I didn't know much else. As I am in my first outfit, Jasmin immediately says, "Alright, I need smiles, laughing, genuine happiness." Uhhh what? Not sexy? I was almost thrown off. But, I gave it a shot. Game changer. I felt so beautiful! She kept giving me the best feedback and helping me feel like a million bucks. This girl can really multitask too. Taking photos and using a blow dryer for wind in my hair! It was such a fun shoot. I left the shoot like I was on cloud nine. I couldn't wait for the images.
Not too much later, I got my prints in and my jaw dropped. I was my true size and I had never seen anything more beautiful. Everything changed for me. The way I saw myself, my thinking, and my journey. I immediately knew that the confidence I felt seeing these images is something every woman needs to feel. I knew that from here on out, I wanted to use modeling as a platform for body confidence. Most women who are curvy are so self conscious and so concerned about losing weight. I'm 100% about being healthy and working out, but I have now realized that there is no perfect body. Love and take care of the one you are given. Be confident in what you have and who you are, and you will succeed in life. Beauty is beyond size. We are size sexy!
Quick 2015 year review.
2015 started off rough in a hotel room for weeks with two kids after our move off island to Indiana. Out of boredom and desperation I started to submit images to different blogs. It happened that some of my work has been featured which led me to submit more images.
Well 2015 was full of surprises and different blog and magazine features :)
I also have been writing quick tips for the BP4UBlog.
At the end of the year my work has been published in Beyond the Wanderlust Magazine and in a Danish Newspaper!
Sugar & Lace Studio has been published.
My work in print at Beyond the Wanderlust Magazine! Capturing Bare Portraits.
By yours truly . XX
