"What I did not know leaving our session, was how inspired and confident I would feel. I have never felt so proud to be a woman in all my life and I have Laurie to thank for that. For the first time, I felt 'good enough' and accepted for who I am and it really transformed who I am today." ~Trish | Hinsdale, Illinois
Yes, we do offer professional hair and makeup services. Though some prefer to do their hair and makeup themselves, I do have an amazing team including professional hair stylists and makeup artists that style you throughout the length of the session. Working with an all female team we make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed and we are passionate about making women look and feel their best. You can read more about these amazing and talented ladies on my about page!
The images shown in my portfolio, blog, and social media have all used Boudoir By Elle's H&MU services for their sessions.
I love seeing a level of simplicity in clothing selections and I offer a full studio wardrobe which contains intimates and lingerie pieces to use during our session.

I photograph women through all seasons of life. Whether they are going through a life change, illness, pregnancy or motherhood we are there to celebrate who they are in that very moment. I am happy to offer light retouching for blemishes but I do not do drastic skin smoothing and liquefying your shape. You are beautiful the way you are.

I create the kind of images I want of myself; something from a woman's perspective and with an artful eye. My definition of 'beauty' has evolved so much over the years and I communicate my sense of beautiful to every woman that comes into my studio.
