Hi, I am Shari! I am a mother of two and began my life as a mother in suburbia when I moved out of the city to grow my great photography business. I was told numerous times that I was a hidden secret because I was never on social media, and got all of my work from word of mouth referrals. I can’t even tell you how many friends of friends of friends I have photographed. About six years ago, one of my regular clients asked me if I would do a boudoir shoot for her as an anniversary gift for her husband. As she begged me to do it for her and explained to me that she would only feel comfortable doing this type of shoot with me, I felt the anxiety building. I couldn’t help but think how am I going to do this…I was completely mortified! This was totally outside of my comfort zone. I often tell my clients that I felt the same way taking the photos as they do being in them.
As a child and family photographer, I suddenly found myself with a whole new vocabulary…”Spread your legs wider,” "Do you want that nipple in the picture?” “Walk down the aisle naked.” If you are thinking you could never do a boudoir photo shoot, then chances are you are my perfect client because I never thought I would spend my days photographing half naked women!
