The Be{you}tiful Project

The people I have photographed have taught me so much about what it means to love yourself and where beauty truly lies. Beauty can be in survival and laugh lines, but it’s always in the soul. I hope that by doing this project, I can help people not only see their beauty in a photograph– but also help them feel beautiful.

I have seen this experience change lives. I want to do this for women who hear they are beautiful, but don’t seem to believe it. I want to show them just how freaking amazing they really are. The winner will be treated to a boudoir session at no cost to anyone (note: this does not mean nude, boudoir can take many forms).

It includes:

2-hour photo-shoot at the winner’s home or an alternative supplied by the winner
(50 miles round-trip from 98109 included)
Pre-shoot brainstorming session with Dana Kae
Professional make-up and hair styling
Full artistic enhancements and retouching
A dropbox folder of 20 digital images!

*Offer expires 90 days after it is gifted. Participant must be willing to allow images to be published by signing a portfolio release form.*


    1. You must nominate them (and not tell them or anyone else).
    2. Send me their story and why they need to feel beautiful.
    3. Include their contact info: full name, email, phone number, and a small photo for reference.
    4. Nominations can be sent in until the last day of every other month (next date is 12/31). I will notify you and the winner by the 10th of the following month!
    5. All the information should be sent to with the title “Be{you}tiful” in the headline. (Please don’t leave it in a comment below)

Do you know someone that needs to feel beautiful? Someone who could benefit from the empowering art of boudoir? Send me an email so I can hear more about this special friend!

With all my heart,
