Luminous sessions are more than just portraits or boudoir photos – they’re a celebration of YOU, of your inner and outer beauty, of your strength and resilience. I’ve created a safe space just for you, where you can shed your insecurities, embrace vulnerability, and fall back in love with the perfectly imperfect woman you’ve always been.

"HOLY SH!T!!! These are AMAZING!!!!! Thank you so much! I'm so blown away!"
~ Andrea

that's what she said...


Luminous grew out of my own desire to reclaim myself as a woman from a multitude of things - hustle culture, cancer, and putting everyone else's needs before my own.

As an artist, I'm inspired by beautiful light, little details, and real women just like you. 

I'm curious ... what's your story?

- maybe you're falling back in love with yourself again
- maybe you're celebrating a milestone or achievement
- maybe you're starting fresh after an illness or divorce
- maybe you simply want to treat yourself, as you should!

Whatever the reason, it is my honor to create portraits of you, for you, so you can see what we all see when we look at you:

You are a work of art, a masterpiece, just as you are in this moment.

you are

That's What She said...

"Oh my goodness! Christy!!! You did your thing with this session! I love them all!"

I'M In!

Every part of the Luminous experience is crafted with your comfort in mind. Before your session, we'll have a consultation call where we'll discuss all the details from the purpose of your photographs to wardrobe, hair and makeup, to what you'd like to do with your final images. You'll also receive a detailed prep guide to make sure you feel prepared and ready for your photoshoot!


Based on your comfort level, you can wear anything you want - or nothing at all! You're free to be completely covered, totally nude or anywhere in between. Your session includes access to the client closet, which includes dresses. robes, cover-ups, draping fabrics, and lots of fun accessories and adornments! 

During your consultation, we'll come up with a game plan that incorporates 3-4 outfits/looks.


Hair and makeup is not included with your session, but I can recommend a few professional and talented artists for you! They're skilled in all skin tones and preferences, and they know what looks good on camera.


Let's be real, we all feel a little awkward in front of the camera. It's totally normal! But don't worry - posing you is my job, so you can relax - you're in good hands.

I'll direct you into the most flattering poses, and I'll coach you on facial expressions and what to do with your hands, feet and everything in between! You'll have a ton of fun and our time together will fly by before you know it!
