Hey, I'm Meg
A body empowerment photographer based in Springbrook, Wisconsin and I'm about to be your favorite cheerleader! Like most women, I've struggled with my share of insecurities. My ass and thighs have always been blessed with cellulite & stretch marks, and no amount of exercise will ever changed that. For the longest time I hated my body and then one day I decided my shitty attitude had to go. So I have cellulite and stretch marks - who really cares? I also have a creative brain, an empathetic heart, and bold ambitions. I'm not on this Earth to be a flawless human, and neither are you! You're here to rise to your most wildly authentic self. So go ahead and tell that inner hater to step outta your way because YOU have got some magic to make.
On the path to making peace with my body, I've chosen not to be defined by it, and with that came a driving force to empower as many women as I can and give them an experience that will truly change the way they look at their own self-worth. You are capable of owning the wild within yourself, and my mission is to bring that power to the surface. When I began photographing intimate portraits in 2012 I was immediately drawn to the vulnerable and fearless nature it brought out in the women I met. Over the years, I've realized that it's not always confidence that brings women in front of my camera, but rather, something untamable. From start to finish, my goal is to bring every ounce of self-loving-magic you hold within yourself out into the open. It's in there, I promise. Let me show you.
The best gift you are ever going
to give someone is the permission
to feel safe in their own skin.
To feel worthy.
To feel like they are enough.
Every woman deserves to have remarkable photos of herself. Despite what you may have been conditioned to believe, you CAN accept yourself & celebrate your unique experience as a woman. Here is where your journey to self-acceptance begins.
All intimate sessions take place at my home studio, nestled in the woods overlooking a secluded river in Springbrook, Wisconsin. Your session is officially reserved on the studio calendar once your creative fee and signed agreement are both on file.
You'll receive digital guides that cover everything from wardrobe & style to makeup & skincare. We also send you a client questionnaire to help us customize your session and make it authentic to you.
Hair & Makeup
Our goal is to make your skin looks its best and highlight your natural features, which is where professional makeup benefits the most. You can expect a pro application to last up to 90 minutes, depending on how dramatic and daring you choose to go.
Our studio wardrobe is constantly evolving & one of our most raved-about perks! We have sizes ranging from xs-6x, with a variety of clothing and lingerie options. Of course, we invite you to bring in your own items, as well.
Every woman who walks through the studio door feels nervous and vulnerable in the beginning - We call it the nakey jitters, and it's 1000% normal. Once you step in front of the camera, though, all of our creative energy is on you, darlin'. We take care of everything from adjusting and styling your wardrobe to posing you right down to your breath. You don't have to worry about being a 'natural' in front of the camera, and you definitely won't hear any, "Okay, now be sexy" bullshit from me! Nope, I know how important it is to have professional posing guidance and will demonstrate each pose for you, beforehand, making adjustments when necessary.
Invest In You.
Reserve your session $500
Our creative fee includes camera-ready hair, makeup & lashes, access to the studio wardrobe, pose coaching, the creation of your imagery, a private session reveal, and a gallery to choose your favorites from. The creative fee does not include any images, printed or digital, nor is it applied as a credit toward your collection purchase. It's recommended to reserve your session at least 6-8 weeks in advance to ensure product delivery for specific deadlines.
Choose your collection
Our collections begin at $2000, and all include a custom album & wall portrait. Free add-ons are also available to choose with each collection purchase! Your choice of collection must be selected within 14 days of reserving your session with us. Please inquire for full pricing!
Payments accepted via cash, credit card and paypal credit.
Privacy is one of the most important aspects of our business. Every woman you see on our website & socials has signed a model release granting us permission to showcase her images. We invite everyone to sign a model release, but of course, you have the right to decline. All images are kept on file until the end of your ordering session and anything that goes unpurchased is purged from our system.
Do you only shoot in studio?
The first session you have with us does take place in our studio. It's a safe & private environment that introduces you to this experience without any distractions from outdoor elements. I love shooting out in nature, and we have 20-acres available on our studio property to explore! At the moment, though, this is only available to returning clients who have already had a studio session with me.
Do I have to bare it all?
Like every women we work with, each session is unique and designed around your comfort. Whether your version of empowerment is a fitted black dress or baring it all in a fine art form, we'll make it happen. That being said, we do urge you to step outside your comfort zone at least a little bit.
What is your retouching policy?
Our main goal is to present you with a collection of images that reflects what you really look like, so editing is quite minimal. The extent of my retouching is making your skin look it's best, but not necessarily in an air-brushed effect. My rule is, if it's something permanent on your body, it stays. I do not take any weight off your body or make you look younger, because the goal with this experience is to accept yourself the way you are.
How far out should I schedule my session?
We always suggest scheduling a minimum of 6-8 weeks before you need your order, if you're on a deadline.
What if I'm not a natural in front of the camera?
Without a doubt, this is the #1 concern women have, but truthfully, you are not expected to know what you're doing! We take care of everything: styling, posing, lighting, and making YOU feel like the badass you are. I show you every pose before having you do it, and while that negative voice might pop up from time to time, we should take it as a challenge to prove it wrong.
What do I wear?
Our client wardrobe grows every season, with 200+ items to choose from at the moment. Figuring out what makes you feel confident can be hard to pinpoint, sometimes, but we're here to help! We provide you with a wardrobe guide that has a variety of tips and you're encouraged to bring pieces of your own. This is where the vision of your shoot really starts to take shape, and we offer our guidance the entire way.
Can I do my own hair & makeup?
All of our sessions include professional hair and makeup with our in-studio stylist who is trained in camera-ready makeup. For this reason, we do not allow our clients to do their own hair and makeup.
Are images included?
Images are not included in our creative fee. All collections are purchased separately.
Do you offer mini sessions?
Given the intimate nature of our work, mini sessions can make our time together feel rushed. For this reason, we do not offer them. All of our clients receive the full custom experience.
