Your Boudoir Photography

My own experience with boudoir photography has been so healing and fun. Boudoir photography was a way for me to learn to see myself in a new light, and an act of rebellion against the unhealthy expectations I have of my body. I found strength and joy not by changing my body, but learning to love the one I have. That's what I want to share with you.

If you're nervous about being in lingerie or nude in front of a camera, I've been there too. With me as your boudoir photographer, you'll have someone there who knows what the experience feels like and how to make your session comfortable and fun!

You might already have inspiration, or maybe you need help crafting your vision. I'm here to help you make art of you.

My boudoir photoshoot experience was 100/10!

I had never done a boudoir photoshoot before, so I really wasn’t sure what to expect and was a bit nervous. But I’ve never met a photographer that works as hard as Micah does to make his clients feel comfortable and confident... So on the day of the photoshoot it just felt like hanging out with a friend, and I wasn’t nervous at all once we got started!

"I haven't been modeling for most a year because of the way I've been feeling about the weight that I've gained. I was finally ready to get in front of the camera again and I picked a great photographer to do that with. He made me feel so beautiful and was so professional."
