Feminist Creative Intimate Safe

My mission

I want to give you a safe space to express yourself, and photos that show you in ways you want to be seen.

Regardless of what we are shooting – boudoir, your wedding photos or your family – I want to give you that safe space, always. My main goal is to give you an amazing experience in front of the camera. I want to give you memories that last a lifetime.


Through my photography, I want to celebrate especially marginalized people, but anyone is welcome in front of my camera. I take photos so that people can see the beauty in themselves. Through the shooting experience I want you to feel stronger and more courageous — like you can do anything you set your mind to.


We all have the same right to feel beautiful, vulnerable and powerful. To see ourselves in a happy relationship or having the wedding of our dreams. To feel valued and seen as who we are.

Behind the lens

I am a kind, inclusive and creative photographer, who lives for the little moments of happiness in everyday life.

I believe that being marginalized helps me to recognize and mind the needs of very different kinds of people. In my work I’ve made it my top priority to create a safe space for you to explore and express your identity, power, vulnerability and love. I want to be a person with whom you feel comfortable sharing any personal detail that might help you on your journey to a kinder gaze towards yourself.


I obviously can’t promise you 100% safety, since people make mistakes, but what I can promise is that everyone you meet during your time with us will do their best to give you a safe space and experience.
