in Kalamazoo, west Michigan

We’ll create boudoir photos overflowing with the beauty that’s on the inside.

This is what makes you YOU.

This is what counts.

I need this self-love

What is BOUDOIR photography?

Boudoir photography is a special form of self-love and self-care that builds confidence through photographs that capture and celebrate YOU and your true beauty from the inside out.

We’ll be highlighting the amazing beauty that the rest of the world loves and sees in you every day. We rarely get glimpses of this and quite honestly, it’s often challenging for us to see ourselves that way when we look in the mirror. Let’s change that today.

PS: we are not talking about your sweet ass (like the one to the left)…although we will be capturing gorgeous details, it is NOT the primary focus of this journey. Your images will be brimming with what’s on the INSIDE. Isn’t that cool?!

We are going to celebrate you in a way none of us were ever given permission to do. We work together to create a clear vision of your goals and how you want your photos to feel. And I want you to know that this is for every BODY—short, tall, skinny, plus-size—I’ve got your back. Come meet me at my boudoir photography studio in Kalamazoo, Michigan!

This is more than just pretty pictures! You are also more than your appearance. We'll be pulling the beauty on the inside out to show the many sides of your personality.

Why Should I Book a Boudoir Photography Shoot in Michigan?

My goal is for you to walk away at the end of the day appreciating and loving yourself a little bit more, just as you are. Boudoir photography instills confidence that will have lasting effects on you and carry over to all aspects of your life.

Boudoir is for every BODY!! I often have gals say, “I can’t do that because I’m not ______ or I’m too ______ (fill in the blank).

I even have curvy gals ask if I shoot plus-size boudoir photography sessions in Michigan. The answer is YES! YES! YES! This is for everyBODY. No exceptions. No rules. In fact, we get to rewrite those scripts about all of society’s BS during this journey!!

Meet Betsy


I’ve been a professional photographer for 15 years, but I have reinvented myself and my boudoir photography studio in Mid-Michigan to reflect what I believe is my true purpose on this planet.

After going through a significant life change in 2016 when I lost my life and business partner, I learned just how precious life could be. Taking time to heal and work on me, I traveled the world with my camera shooting for myself for a year.

My life experiences have given me a truly unique perspective on how I see light. Finding the light in the darkness is part of how I'm wired now, and boudoir photography is my tool to illustrate where they intersect and exist in a delicate balance.

I’ve been on the self-exploration journey and done the work that many of my clients are embarking on. Through my personal work on rebuilding myself and my life after loss, I have learned many ways to love and celebrate myself and my womanhood, which I pass on to my clients through a unique experience that is like no other. I love being a part of bringing it to life in others and sharing these gifts with my clients.
