body positive boudoir for women, femmes, and LGBTQ+ folks


What Is The Love Yrself Project?

The Love Yrself Project originally started as a fundraiser for The Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project. A group of women and femmes all came together to encourage each other, have their hair and makeup done, take some beautiful photos, and feel better about themselves than when they walked through the door. We raised $1700 that day for reproductive justice, and I realized that this was more than just a fundraiser, it was the beginning of a collective support system. 

I'm here to create a safe and welcoming space for you to just be yourself (and I'll show you how amazing you are in the process). We will celebrate your body, as it is in this very moment. Every dimple, roll, stretch mark, scar, birthmark, and freckle. You are perfect just the way you are, and you are ready to conquer this.

Whether you want to celebrate a milestone in the journey of your body, or just simply remember what it felt like to be who are at this very moment, I'm here for you and I support you.

Shawnee made me feel so comfortable. She was encouraging, supportive, and fun! I had an awesome time despite being really nervous before we started - and on top of all that, I think the photos are stunning. She managed to capture what makes me ME. I couldn’t be happier with the whole experience.
