PennyPralinePhillyBoudoirSession-125.jpg

Tattoos + a badass queer babe + a gorgeous penthouse = you better believe some serious magic! Penny was such a delight to work with during her shoot and she was game for anything! Her gorgeous tattoos and outfit choices really shined in her session and this Fishtown Philadelphia penthouse was the most ahhhmazing backdrop! We had all the fun laughing and rolling around and getting wet, but more than that, Penny is the kind of person you just wanna hang out with because she is so down to earth and sweet and funny. And she is a photographers DREAM to shoot! I also love that she didn’t wanna hide her body and was all about loving all of it! Not every client who walks through my door is down for this and thats ok, but when I get to work with a babe thats like nah, all of me is amazing, its awesome!

A huge thank you to Penny for hiring me for this shoot and allowing me to share some favs with all of you! Wanna schedule your own shoot? Click here to learn all the details and send us a message!

Hotel Monaco Spa Bath Mini Session with Fi

Oh ya'll, this is a good one!!!  The Hotel Monaco in Old City Philadelphia is the perfect background for this luxe spa inspired boudoir session and I am so excited to share just one of the sessions I did there a few weeks ago!  Meet Fi, a bombshell that I am obsessed with!  She was so willing to do just about anything for that perfect shot and boy did it pay off!  And you know what the crazy part is?  All of what you are going to see below was shot in just under 19 minutes!  Mini sessions are a fun way to do something totally different OR dip your toes into the boudoir world and I am so excited for our 2 day marathon at this location September 7th and 8th.  Sessions are $175 and include a 30 minute timeslot that as you can see with Fi, is plenty of time to shoot two looks!  While you certainly don't have to shoot in the tub with water in it, it certainly makes for some gorgeous images!

Meghan - A Philadelphia Rooftop Body Positive Boudoir Session

Philly Outdoor Rooftop Boudoir Session by Swiger Photography 29.jpg

Meet Meghan ya’ll! She is an incredible boudoir photographer out of Toms River NJ and last Monday she and I met up to trade boudoir photos on my roof deck overlooking Philadelphia! And it was pure magic ya’ll! I will be blogging the stunning boudoir photos she took of me very soon but I am just in LOVE with these Philly Roofdeck images of her. From her purple hair, to the great outfits, to that booty, to the city in the background, the whole session was such a breath of fresh air and different from my normal work and I love love love it! It was so nice to just hang out with someone who does what I do and who just gets that this industry is wayyy too over saturated with men! We laughed and traded stories and shot each other and it was the kind of thing I needed! So please enjoy some of my favorites, although its a lot more than a few this time! I had wayyyy too hard of a time narrowing this one down ya’ll!

Aly - A Body Postive Boudoir Session

Aly Philadelphia Body Postive Boudoir Session -90.jpg

I have "known" Aly online for awhile but had never met her in person till she came into the studio for a session and what immediately struck me was how full of joy and laughter she was.  She was confident and funny from the jump, willing to do anything during her shoot and because of that, her session was magical.  She laughed at my painfully corny jokes and was effortless the entire session and its not because of what you may think.  She's not a model, she just allowed her true self to be present the entire session, laughing and smiling because she was just being her.  And that friends, is the best kind of session.  

Aly, I adore you.  Photographing another photographer is nerve wracking and a little intimidating but you were just so incredibly sweet that my nerves melted away within minutes.  Your smile and laugh are infectious and your are freaking stunning.  The confidence you have is what self love and body positive is all about and I could have photographed you all dang day.  

I love this whole session so much and let me tell you, narrowing down my favs to post was damn near impossible!  But scroll on below and see what just a **few** of my favorites are.  

Meredith - Queer Boudoir Session Philadelphia

Queer Boudoir Photographer Philadelphia

I shared my first boudoir session with Meredith earlier this year on the blog and I am so excited to be sharing her second session with me! This queer tatted babe is not only one of the sweetest people you could meet, but funny and kind too. Shooting her again was like a breath of fresh air and we made the most out of her mini session at my old studio and even ended with a little wet white tank fun too! I seriously adore this babe and I also love the way these images feel like her, something that I think is especially important for my queer clients! As always, I had a hard time narrowing it down but I mean, how can you blame me when she is so gorgeous!!!

And to Meredith - thank you for always trusting me to photograph you and for being so sweet to Jordan and I. We are you and Megan to pieces!

Hotel Monaco Mini Session with Seraphina

Seraphina M Shoot-9.jpg

What happens when I combine a gorgeous hotel suite with the most beautiful bathrooms I have ever seen + one of my gorgeous friends?  Magic ya'll.  Magic.  Seraphina is....oh goodness.  Seraphina is laughter.  Sarcasm.  Edgy hair meets eyes the right person can get lost in.  Curves for days and a mind that will also take you on a journey.  She is gorgeous and funny.  And she is quickly becoming one of Jordan and my favorite people for a thousand reasons!  So when I decided to shoot promos for our upcoming marathon, I knew she was def going to be someone I asked to be apart.  I love how her mini session is a range of all things her and that, in her own words, she looks like a "harpy mermaid that will eat your heart out while looking stunning."  Which let's be honest, is accurate af.  Want your own mini session at this gorgeous location??  You can snag one for September 7th and 8th for $175, while they last by click HERE.  

But now back to Seraphina and how incredibly stunning she is.  Girl, you are the definition of a badass babe and I am so thrilled our world includes you in it.  I cant wait to do more crazy shoots with you and have amazing adventures with fancy cocktails, honest and you and Jordan.  May you never ever ever forget that you are one bad bitch and that you've got us in your corner <3

Siona - A Philadelphia Boudoir Session

Siona Queer Philly Boudoir Photography-121.jpg

I don't even know where to begin with this one.  Siona is an incredible woman and friend and when she came in for a session at our Philadelphia boudoir studio a few months ago, I knew that we were going to make magic together from the moment I started shooting.  I have always loved her easy of being herself, the way confidence and laughter pour from her soul, and her images just show that.  What's fun is I photographed Siona a year before and it was crazy to see how much we both had changed and what that did to the way the images turned out.  

Siona, I am going to miss having your bubbly, sweet, encouraging self around here when you move.  I have appreciated all the times you have encouraged me and spoken life into my heart regarding my work and for the way you have always believed in Jordan and I.  I can't wait though to see what this next adventure will hold for you and Andi and I hope that whoever you come home, we can keep up our this adventure of seeing how we both change as the years go by.  Enjoy just some of my favorites below!  

Rachel - A Philly Boudoir Session

RachelPhillyBoudoirSession-15.jpg

It's a snowy morning and I can't think of a better way to warm up a Tuesday than with Rachel's incredible boudoir session!  I have known of Rachel for several years but this was the first time I really got to hang out with her and oh my is she so sweet.  And not only sweet but stunning too!  She brought so many different looks for her session and I love the variety we created!  From gorgeous gowns, to vintage furs, to sexy lingerie and body suits this session is one that seriously gave me the heart eyes!  

Rachel is one of those people who is so supportive of the people she cares about and that is especially true for the Philadelphia Burlesque Community.  From attending shows, to sharing events, to supporting the work her friends are doing, to the now kittening for some shows too...she is always, always, always supporting the people around her.  And that is something I adore about her.  In a world where a lot of people try to compete, its awesome to know people like Rachel just want to see everyone be their badass selves.  

I know Rachel you that you are nervous to see your entire session but I hope that seeing my favs shows you just how STUNNING you are.  Because damnnnnn your session is fire.  This is all you girl.  I just take what the rest of us already see.  Thank you for showing up, being yourself, and letting me photograph all that sexiness!  It was truly my honor and I hope you will let me do it again sometime.  <3.
