18 Jun Torrid Boudoir’s Stylist Spotlight | Austin Boudoir Photography
I’d like to take a moment to give a shout out to my AMAZING stylists! Each one has her own different, awesome personality and offer such incredible skill sets with lots of tools in their toolbox.
Let’s start with the beautiful Miss Ashley “Ace” Gibbs. I have known Ace since she was 11 years old! Our mothers were best friends and business partners back in the day, so it only makes sense that we’d start a business together as well. It was inevitable. We laugh uncontrollably when we are together. She is silly, easy-going and infectious. When she is not making over our Torrid Boudoir clients, she is managing her own salon in downtown Austin. Go see her at Bird’s Barbershop on 6th. Tell her I sent ya!

Next up — Mrs. Michelle Rodriguez! I met Michelle a few years ago at my son’s baby ballet class. We hit it off right away, both sharing a passion for photography and being creative! Her little one is my little one’s future wife! (Amaya + Utah = Love!) She is not only an incredible Hair + Make-Up Artist, but she is also a mama to three beautiful girls AND an amazing family/child photographer! She is truly a jack of all trades! She is my best friend, my confidant and my photography-soul-mate.
