Hey, I'm Patrick Michael!

Discover Your Story Through The Transformative Power Of Boudoir Photography

Welcome to a space where every image tells a story, and every story is a celebration of you. With over 30 years of passion for photography, I've dedicated myself to the art of capturing moments that empower, inspire, and transform. Your boudoir experience with me is more than a photoshoot—it's a step towards seeing yourself in a new, empowering light.

My Journey in Photography

My passion for photography ignited over three decades ago, starting with my first photography class. This interest has only deepened with each class and tutorial I've taken since. While my expertise spans across various photography niches, I've devoted the last five years exclusively to boudoir photography—a realm where artistry and empowerment merge to create something truly magical.

Why Boudoir?

  • A Passion for the Craft: My focus is on the intricate dance of light and shadows, the composition of each shot, and creating visually stunning images that are as interesting to look at as they are fun.
  • Celebrating Stories: The essence of boudoir photography lies in its ability to celebrate individual stories, empowering clients to see themselves in a new, positive light. Witnessing the profound impact these images have on my clients is what sets boudoir photography apart for me.


Photography is not just my profession; it's intertwined with my lifelong commitment to personal transformation—both in myself and others. Before fully stepping into the world of photography, I spent over two decades in the personal fitness industry, aiding individuals in their journeys of health, fitness, and mindset transformation. The transition to boudoir photography felt natural, as both paths are about fostering positive change and self-perception.

From overcoming my own challenges, such as transforming from a skinny kid to a US National cycling champion, to helping others achieve their personal bests, the essence of transformation and empowerment has always been at the core of my endeavors.

A Bit More About Me

  • Roots and Wings: Born in Champaign, IL, and raised in St. Louis, MO, I eventually sought warmer climates and moved to Florida in 1999.
  • Dog, My Quiet Sidekick: My small blind dog, Dog, is more than a pet; he's a constant companion.
  • Family Ties: Positioned as the middle child, I draw inspiration from my successful older brother, a bank consultant and counseling practice co-owner in St. Louis, and my younger sister, who thrives in the mortgage and real estate industry in Flagstaff, AZ.

Choosing me for your boudoir photoshoot means entrusting your story to someone who not only understands the technical nuances of photography but also deeply values the emotional and transformative power behind every image. I look forward to being part of your empowering experience.
