Jeni & Sarah
We created Grace and Lace Boudoir in 2012 to help women love and accept their body and appreciate all it has done for her. We want women to look at a picture of herself and LOVE what she sees. We want her to see what we and her friends and family see - a woman who does not spend time dwelling on the past and living with regret, but works toward what she wants; a woman who values quality over quantity and understands the investment of portraiture; a woman who loves and respects her husband or fiance; a mother who teaches and loves her children but knows she should nurture herself as well. We want you to see you are a woman of worth & beauty.
We're more than business partners ... we're true friends and we do life together. We have managed to keep a healthy business partnership relationship AND a healthy friendship. It's not always easy, but we've learned how to identify each other's strengths and weaknesses and make it work for our business. Not only are we close, but our families are also. We vacation together; our kids are growing up together; we go to church together. In 2012, we decided to merge our two careers together to form one business. By doing this, it has allowed us to fulfill our creative spirits and do what we love doing - encouraging other women!

Meet your photographer -
I fell in love with boudoir back in 2010 before I even really knew exactly what the genre was called - and I've loved it ever since! I pride myself on making your boudoir experience the best it could possibly be. My job is to create stunning images that you will love for the rest of your life, all while making the process as easy and comfortable as possible. My number one priority is YOU. I know this can be a nerve-wracking experience and you are likely out of your comfort zone doing a boudoir session, but that's the exhilarating part! Trust me, I know!! As a wife and mother, I understand the struggle to feel sexy or to embrace my body, but I've done my own boudoir session to do just that. I'm a firm believer there's no room for adventure & growth in your comfort zone! I will bend over backwards to make your day perfect from start to finish! Showing women just how fun this experience can be is truly rewarding for me and I can't believe I get to call this my job. I can't wait to work with you and create an exciting, sexy, and sensual experience with you!

Meet your makeup artist -
I have been doing makeup now professionally for about 17 years! I love helping women see a different side of themselves, bringing out the confidence that can sometimes be hidden. Every woman has a side of themselves that they have never seen or that they don't see often, so its exciting for me to be able to show that to my clients. I am passionate about the art of makeup and I love studying the face and all the things that can be done with it. I'm constantly learning and growing because this is what I love. Creating relationships with my clients is also a bonus! Boudoir is a vulnerable thing to do and I get that. When you sit in my chair, I want to help you feel comfortable, I want you to walk away feeling like you had a great time with your girlfriends!
