…but there’s never been a better time to celebrate who you are then right now.


What is the Goddess Project?

Look around you and see how little we see women of a certain age represented in the media. Why is there no representation for us? Why does it seem like women are given an arbitrary shelf life to feel sexy, beautiful and confident? We’re changing the narrative and shaking things up!!!

We’ll chat over the phone about WHY you want to do a shoot, any inspiration or ideas you have, and how we can customize your session to you! Let’s show the world that women of ALL ages are goddesses.

Our amazing stylists will provide professional makeup and hairstyling services on the day of your shoot.

Next you’ll shoot with Michelle in our gorgeous Grand Rapids studio and she’ll show you how to pose from your head to your toes as well as guide you into authentic, genuine expressions that will leave you with the best photos you’ve ever seen of yourself!

The Goddess Project fee is $395 and includes one free image or a $300 print credit towards a Collection. Immediately following your shoot, you’ll be able to see all of your images and choose your absolute favorite. If you’d rather use your print credit, we will guide you through choosing your favorites and help you decide on the package and products that best suit you.

Because our goal is to inspire others, we are hosting The Goddess Gala! A fun, women’s night out event at our studio where we will display an image from each of the participants in this project. We’ll even send you tickets for your gal pals to join the fun! Join us for an amazing event meant to inspire and celebrate ALL women.

See what our clients are saying about their experience!

If you are looking for a confidence boost, to feel more empowered, and to love who you are on the outside, Michelle is the photographer for you!! My experience with her was amazing!!

I have never felt beautiful. I am a confident woman, who has always succeeded in accomplishing my goals, but never loved who I am on the outside. Michelle brought out that beauty. I can truly see myself in a different way and am now more confident as a presence in any room.

I was nervous when I came in, as I am sure everyone is. I never imagined doing anything like this. Michelle’s “bedside” manner helped rid me of my nerves rather quickly. She has such a calming presence and her humor just brings out the smiles so they do not look fake and posed. I would recommend this experience to any woman I know!! The results were so artistic, feminine, classy, and beautiful!! I felt very empowered to make decisions, ask questions, and give ideas! Thank you, Michelle!!!

Intimate Boudoir Photo Shoot in Grand Rapids

Even though I arrived a little nervous my nerves were quickly calmed. It was so empowering to be able to feel comfortable in my own skin and see these photos that show confidence and curves!!

The instant connection I felt with Michelle made everything fun! I was honestly shocked! They looked so beautiful. Before the shoot I wasn’t sure I’d be able to look at the photos without picking myself apart, instead it made me feel so much more confident in myself. It was hard to only pick out the ones I did since I loved them all so much!

Empowerment to me means feeling proud to be you! Unapologetically yourself <3 Do it! Even if you’re nervous just jump in, with Michelle behind the camera you won’t be disappointed!

Self Love and Empowerment in West Michigan

Going into the shoot I felt like a woman who has battled and overcome a lot. After the shoot I felt empowered. My outside was reflective of the goddess I know lies within me. I am known among my friends as being confident in my voluptuous body but the shoot helped me see beauty where I previously hadn’t.

This is something I have desired to do for a while now. To embrace all of who I am as a woman.

Truly it was one of the most fun and positive experiences of my life. I got to share my story with these amazing women, who accepted me and cheered me on! The whole team was amazing. I felt comfortable and confident throughout, like I was hanging out with my girlfriends!

It was really cool to see the strength and confidence I’ve been cultivating inside reflected in my physical appearance! Do it! Splurge on an opportunity to tell *your* story, to celebrate how far you’ve come, to see and show the goddess you really are!
