Denver Boudoir Photography: Words cannot express how thrilled I am to finally write this post!! Almost one year ago, after much deliberation, I decided that it was time to create a space for my boudoir and portrait clients. I looked at dozens of spaces all over Denver and ultimately decided to take on a massive home remodel project that was originally supposed to take approximately 3 months. It took 8 and a half. I lived in my basement while my home was literally torn apart from floor to ceiling and wall to wall.
As an artist and photographer seriously addicted to color and more importantly, LIGHT, I cannot even begin to describe how dark those 8 months were for me. I lived without a kitchen for about 6 of those months (you’re welcome Starbucks) and figuratively climbed the walls while my house looked and felt like a construction zone from July of 2014 until very recently. Between all of my doubt and worry, hope and determination, frustration and tears, stubborn dedication and way-in-over-my-head-ness, it was a roller-coaster ride that I truly would not wish on anyone. But, now that I am finally on the other side of it, I am beyond happy with how everything has turned out. I guess that old cliche “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” is more often than not, truth. If I had it to do all over again, I would.
If you would have asked me 5 years ago if I could see myself in that house growing a boudoir and portrait business, I would have looked at you like you were insane. Not only did I not plan to stay put in Arvada or in that particular home, I honestly wasn’t even considering growing a new branch of my business. But the growth and changes both personally and professionally that I have undergone since 2010 have changed me in more ways than I can begin to explain. I guess the important thing to remember is that life will continue to throw curve balls at us all. It’s how we decide to react that will either send us on a downward spiral or on a progressive evolution. I have done a bit of both, but would like to believe it has been more of the latter…
So, without further ado, it with much gratitude, faith, and trust in this wild and wacky universe that we inhabit, that I share images from my first home studio boudoir session with an absolute bombshell of a bride-to-be. I would love to guess where I might be 5 years from now, but I think I’d rather just be surprised. 🙂

Hi Frances, My name is Brooke I was looking at your profile and I am very interested in your work. I was wondering if you are able to do Valentine pictures for me if possible. Thanks so much!
