Modern Portraits
& Boudoir!


 Hello there! 
   I'm Rita, and a boudoir and glamour photographer with over 12 years of experience, I have witnessed the transformative power of women's portraiture.  But, let me tell you how long it took me to say, "I am beautiful." It took years to be at peace with my self-image. I have always struggled with my appearance, much like a lot of women. I have since realized how much I love what my body is capable of; the real beauty lies beneath any self-perceived flaw. Becoming a portrait photographer, I bottled up my self-love journey, and I want to share it with everyone. I understand the pain of not feeling comfortable in your own skin. But let me tell you how awesome it feels once you find self-acceptance and freedom. A newly found freedom and peace brings such refreshment to our everyday life. I want every woman to feel that liberation from self-doubt. Let me be your guide to your new beginning.

Love Notes

Testimonials from WOMEN that took the leap!

"As a mom I wanted to do something that made me feel empowered and proud of my body. No, my body is not the same as it was when I was 20, but it created a life. I decided to do a boudoir session with rita as a way to celebrate what my body has accomplished. I was so nervous to “expose” parts I was self conscious about but Rita made me feel comfortable and beautiful! She was encouraging throughout the entire process, and never made me feel insecure. She made sure I was comfortable, happy and had a fun time during it!! She made me laugh and also gave great instructions on how to pose! I just received my album and I am in awe! Not only is it a beautiful and quality album, but it showcases me in a way I have not felt in years! Thank you so much for the fun experience, and to allow me celebrate myself as a woman."

“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.”
― Steve Maraboli

Unveil your inner


Do I have control over who sees my images? 

I’m not a model – are boudoir photos still flattering even if my body isn’t perfect? 

Yes, most certainly. We will only share photos if you have given us permission and have approved the images for sharing. We respect your wishes and won't post or share any images if you’d prefer they stay private. 

Absolutely! Nobody is perfect and every woman is sexy. If you have any specific concerns, contact us and we can talk about it!

It is definitely normal to be nervous for your boudoir session, so don't worry. Most of our clients are nervous until the session has gone on for a few minutes. After it starts, you’ll begin to loosen up and really enjoy the process!

A closet full of dresses & lingerie is provided. However, I do suggest bringing 3-4 outfits as well.  I also offer complimentary styling advice for choosing the best outfits as well! 

Do you provide the wardrobe?

I'm really nervous. Is that normal?

Everything you need to know to Make Your Perfect Session a Reality

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Rita and I capture beauty. Beauty is a simple, yet meaningful word. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been mesmerized with different aspects of art. From being the goofy kid in the yearbook club, to a rookie one-person photographer, I came along way to finding my true passion with Modern Portraits (also known as Glamour photography) & Boudoir photography. Modern Portraiture & Boudoir is more than taking photographs of beautiful people. It is making people feel beautiful and encouraging them to discover themselves. My passion is shown through the images I capture.  My goal is to help every person find their own unique beauty, one by one.
Through my past struggles with confidence, I know what it is like to walk in your shoes. Trash your negative thoughts. With me, I want you to celebrate who you are. I provide a no-judgment zone where you can let go and have fun. Think you are not good enough? I think you are perfect just the way you are. Have some fun at the studio, and leave your worries at the door!
