Behind the Lens

meet BRI

I have an eye for romance and help my clients uncover their natural beauty by capturing genuine emotions & connections.

Passionate Aries, lover of light,  travel, and finding beauty in emotions. Piña Coladas are pretty cool too. 

 Let's go waaaay back! I got my first point and shoot camera as a christmas gift when I was in middle school and I held photoshoots for my barbies and eventually I moved on  to styling  and photographing whichever family member I could convince. Although in  highschool I got my first "REAL" camera, it wasn't until my mid-20's that I specialized in family portraits and newborn photography.

As I became a mother myself I went through the amazing changes that come with motherhood and I felt lost in my newfound identity as a  "Mom". It was then that I started my  journey of self discovery and what I found when I started to look for myself was SOMETHING WAY MORE VALUABLE THAN I EVER IMAGINED.

 I found a community of  women who were finding themselves too!

Women who were reclaiming their bodies from abusive pasts, harmful disorders, medical conditions, surgeries and even their beloved children. With every client I photograph, we look beyond the "imperfections" that the media tells us we need to "FIX" and learn to love ourselves on a deeper level.

I'M CINDY

Hair & Makeup, Skincare pro + Styling Manager

 I can remember going to work with my grandma, on the East Side of Chicago, to a small hair salon and giving mini manicures to all the clients waiting to get their hair cut for tips. That is where my love to help people feel so great about themselves began. From there I began to explore playing with styling hair, giving massages, I went to cosmetology school, and here I am today a licensed esthetician following my passion. The focus in my career are doing custom makeup looks, light hair styling, spray tanning, and facials.

What does boudoir mean to you?

I just love human beings in general!!! I love to make people feel sexy, confident, and just hype them up. Boudior creates a space for anyone to express themselves and their sexuality freely. It is my passion and thankfully my job to to serve our clients with all of their beauty needs to feel their best selves.
