I’M PHOTOGRAPHING 40 WOMEN IN THEIR 40’S, 50’S, 60’S+
I’D LOVE FOR YOU TO BE ONE OF THEM!
WHY OVER 40, WHY ME & WHY NOW?
My name is Betsy and I’m a professional Boudoir & Portrait Photographer, based in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I have been a professional photographer for 17 years and this is the most powerful portrait series that I have worked on with clients to date and I can't wait to meet you!
I just turned 50 and I am absolutely excited to share our unique self-love focused boudoir experience with women in their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. I was widowed in my early 40s and boudoir became an important part of my healing as I worked to rediscover who I was as an individual, embrace where I was in life, move with confidence into the next chapter, learn to love myself, and even find love again. To say that it was transformational, is a massive understatement!
Wherever you are on your journey, I promise that this experience will be fun, fulfilling, and transformational for you in whichever way you need it most. The REVOLUTION is within you...and I want to bring it out! Join me on a fun and incredible adventure.
Remember…it’s ALL about you. I can’t wait to meet you and see (and FEEL) the magic we create together.

SEE WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE
“I’ve wanted to do this since my 20s but life happened. I had no idea of the transformation that would take place. It was perfect timing as a present to myself for 52nd birthday! I feel empowered as I accept & fully love my imperfect self.
Spend the money, it’s 💯 worth it, YOU ARE WORTH IT! It is so much more than photographs. It’s focusing on all that you truly are through self love, positive energy, happiness, and confidence.
“My photos remind me daily that I am powerful within myself. They remind me that what I feel, isn't always what I portray and they kick me in the ass to stand straighter, while I shine from within. These photos are a daily affirmation.
Betsy found the spark in me that revealed that I'm actually still alive and growing after 50, giving me a magnanimously different view of myself. This has been, singularly, the KINDEST THING I’VE EVER ONE FOR MYSELF!”
“I can now see why others love me and it gives me no reason not to love myself. I see the beauty inside and outside. I see so many more dimensions of myself!
I will never shy away from pictures again! I am so much more comfortable in my body. Getting to know yourself in this way is fun! Betsy is so gifted at bringing out your beauty, so if you want to dump that baggage you still carry and get your power back—THEN JUST DO IT!”
