Photographer & business owner
Hi! I'm Kaitie!
I've been in the industry since 2012 and have picked up boudoir within the last 5 years. I love the idea of empowering yourself and embracing your body. The beauty industry has put such a specific image out as the "perfect" body type/look and I am determined to break that standard!
I am dedicated to keeping my models and clients feeling safe and comfortable. I took up modelling on the side in my first couple years in the industry, to really understand what it feels like being on the other side of the lens. I understand how difficult it is to get comfortable, but I hope my tips and tricks can help you out!

Hello! My name is Rachel.
14 years ago I attended a small makeup school here in Victoria B.C. where I was born and raised, with the intention of moving on to a larger city and furthering an education in prosthetic makeup for film, but I quickly fell in love with beauty makeup, and less in love with bald caps and third degree burns.
Since then I have worked in the retail cosmetic world for brands like Estée Lauder, Smashbox, YSL and MAC, where I have had the opportunity to work on every skin tone and texture, while continuing my freelance business on the side specializing in bridal makeup.
In the industry? Contact me for your 20% discount code upon booking! My door is open to SW's and I am dedicated keeping my client's identity safe. I have been working with SW's since I started boudoir and am happy to create content for your websites, promo, private sales and more! I do offer face blurring services and tattoo removal, please let me know when you inquire if you'd like to add on these services!
Not sure what to wear?
Check out my client wardrobe!
My client wardrobe is available for all sessions free of charge! To view sizes click on the image.
Do you share all your client images?
No! Everything posted to my social media or website has been approved by the client. You do not have to have your images posted!
You also are allowed to ask me to remove your photos at any time, no questions asked.
I can't disclose my legal name! How private is my information?
I will never share my clients photos or names to others without permission. I understand the importance of aliases and will always refer to you as the name you would like me to use. For legal purposes I do need all contracts signed with your legal name, but I will never share it!
Can I bring someone with me?
Absolutely! If a photographer ever says you can't bring someone to the session that's a huge red flag! Bring someone who can help you feel more comfortable. Stylists are also more than welcome to join if you'd like help with touch ups during the session.
What are some tips to prep for a session?
Make sure you have 1-3 different outfits that you are confident in! Try them on and move around in them to make sure you like how they fit you. My client wardrobe is always available free of cost for sessions as well!
Prep your skin the night before. Make sure to exfoliate and to moisturize after you've waxed/shaved to avoid bumps. (Retouching includes razor burn removal)
Test out your hair & Makeup before hand! We've all been there, you do your makeup day-of and don't love it. To avoid that make sure to try it out before and test it out on camera! Take some selfies in natural light and see how you feel about it.
