Burnout: The Treadmill Broke

The treadmill broke. It had the smell of a burnout, like rubber tires on pavement. I had been running on that same treadmill for fifteen years. That’s a long time to be running in one place on the same piece of equipment day in and day out. I never maintained it, not once did I […]

The River as My Muse

The river by my house has been my muse in a way that I didn’t expect since moving to the Kootenays. I had planned for something different for when I moved out here. I’d be taking brave clients down to the river and the forest for boudoir and empowerment sessions. I’d be inspired by nature […]

Nelson Empowerment Session

Nelson Empowerment Session For this Nelson Empowerment Session I had to get up before the sun even rose – and if you know anything about me, it’s that I am NOT a morning person! However, I definitely don’t regret rubbing the sleep out of my eyes for this beautiful client’s session. The ethereal effect from […]

Boudoir Album: Do it for YOU

I Didn’t Invite My Parents to Our Elopement 

I didn’t invite my parents to our elopement.  My mother didn’t turn up for my first wedding. It was an elopement to a trans woman in a tiny little bar in the mountains of Northern Virginia. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how to feel about it at first. At the time I wasn’t the […]

The Babes Guide to Budgeting

Money has been coined as such a dirty word in our society. Something that a lot of us don’t understand and that a lot of us have grown to fear. Simply because we don’t have the tools to keep, save, and spend our money appropriately. I’m here to change all of that for you with […]
