  • wear loose clothes and no bra


These are outfits that look good on every body type. We'll personalize it for YOUR photoshoot when you book.


Shaper slips

Long gone are the granny girdles. Today's slips have intricate lace and beautiful fabrics that smooth any lumps and bumps into a beautiful silhouette

We recommend PlayfulPromises.com

fitted jersey and high-waisted panties

Show some love to your favorite team, but skip the oversized jersey. Find a fitted women's jersey or a cute fan tee. Then pair it with some high waisted skivvies (a little sparkle helps).

Check out Fanatics.com

Sweater & Panties

Nothing says "girlfriend sexy" like a soft off-the-shoulder sweater and a pretty pair of panties.

Love the ones from Aerie.

Bridal Accessories

We love photographing the more intimate accessories you'll wear on your wedding day.

Swoon over Jewliette's sparklies!


These leave a little to the imagination and create a stunning look that suits all body types. If you don't love your arms, they even have sleeves.

We heart ASOS.

Nothing at all

We have the white sheets, but feel free to bring your favorite blanket for a custom look.

These from RH are so cozy.

A little inspiration.

Miss C is a two-time client. This video was recorded just a couple of months before she and her husband announced they were having a beautiful baby boy.
