Battling disease takes its toll on your body and spirit. Femininity takes a back seat when you are fighting for your life. Cancer survivor boudoir is a session that helps women take another step in their healing process.
In September, I had the pleasure of working with a client who was one of the strongest people I have ever met. Ms. Y. had battled leukemia twice, and flat-lined twice. She was the ultimate survivor.
Ms. Y. had also photographed boudoir in Baltimore when she was younger. She knew the positive impact a boudoir photoshoot could have on her confidence and self-esteem. She was looking for that type of life changing session.

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and twice as beautiful as you’d ever imagined. Don’t let cancer cause you to sell yourself short or forget your worth.

When she contacted me about the photoshoot, Ms. Y. told me she wanted to celebrate her victories. Her inner beauty came shining through as she told me her story. I was thrilled to be a part of her healing journey.

The centerpiece of her boudoir session was a special outfit, crown and finger jewelry. Mermaid_boudoir_couture created this especially for Ms. Y. “I love her work,” said Ms. Y., “I wish I could buy everything she crafts!”

At my Westminster, MD boudoir studio, sessions are always personalized for my clients. Another fascinating part of Ms. Y’s personality was her love of Halloween. Her Nightmare Before Christmas tattoos were proof of that!

Being so close to Halloween, she also wanted to shoot some Halloween Boudoir too. That style is always fun, so we created some shots for her use on social media.

Cancer survivor boudoir encourages mind & body confidence in all women. It proves you are not only strong, but beautiful beyond words. You faced your trauma and now wear your scars with pride. Embrace yourself, for you are a survivor.


“Overcoming cancer awakens a courage and confidence inside of you that makes you want to live big, bold and intentional every day. It becomes much easier to grow as a person, because you have already been forced way out of your comfort zone. I don’t worry about failing when I try new things now, because my inner voice always reminds me that ‘this’ can’t be any harder than cancer!”

Please remember to do your monthly breast checks and schedule your mammograms. The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance to beat it.
