Here’s a small look at a boudoir project I worked on with Kate Ignatowski a few weeks ago.  Our model Jen from Boss Models looked beautiful in lingerie from Cosabella.  The pieces below are from the Erin Fetherston Collection; so  delicate!  Of course, I styled the shoot with some pretty little things.  Much more coming soon!

Just a sneak peak from a boudoir project I worked on with Kate Ignatowski recently.  It was such a fun shoot with girly things. Our model Evelyn was radiant and Kate shot on film!  Yay!   The flowers were provided by my friends at Blooms by the Box and this little creation above was designed by me.
