Hey there, I’m Ashlee… the artist behind Embrace!

After my own boudoir experience, I discovered a confidence I didn't know was possible. I was able to overcome past traumas in countless ways and I knew I had to share that experience with as many others as possible. While I've been a photographer for almost a decade, it was in early 2016 that I set out to learn intimate portraiture and truly began to delve into my mission of providing a safe space for people to explore what their sensuality means to them; I've never looked back!

A few interesting tidbits about me:

I am a wife and mother.
Mister Rogers is my hero.
I’m both a dog AND cat person.
I enjoy Marvel films, video games, and fantasy novels.
I really like (OK, love) potatoes.
I’m internationally published and have a degree in photographic technologies from SECP.

My Clifton Strengths are: adaptability, harmony, relator, intellection, and consistency.


Meet the Embrace Team

 Hey, I’m Angelina! I’m Embrace Boudoir’s primary makeup artist. Personally, makeup has always been an artistic outlet. When I finally decided to take the leap and become a professional, is when I realized just how much of an impact my art can have on others. When I meet clients, they are almost always shaking with nerves. They sit in my chair and immediately start to apologize for their breakouts, untamed brows and childhood scars. I brush their concerns to the side as I get to work not to hide their “flaws”, but accentuate all the beauty they already hold.

 Heya, I’m Keelena! I’m Embrace Boudoir’s Boobsistant. Need some Starbucks? I got you. Need a cheerleader? Das me! I help you and Ashlee during shoots, by doing things like fixing wardrobe/hair malfunctions, moving stuff, catching falling lights, doing funny dances, etc. Once you've ordered your photos, I also do the skin retouching (and Ashlee works her magic afterwards)! I love working at Embrace because it’s a very positive environment and I get to meet the most beautiful people inside and out!
