With much discussion, we have decided to close Lace in Light. We are so grateful for all of the photographers that have contributed to LiL over the years. You have provided us with constant inspiration and helped us personally grow with our own craft of photography.
If you are wondering why, this paragraph is for you! First and foremost our personal evolution has taken us in a different direction. While boudoir and female portrait work will always be a passion, our main focus has shifted into growing our photo company. While it could be possible to continue to run this on the side, our hearts are just not there anymore. We are simply not fans of half ass-ing anything we put our hands on. We hope you understand!
What will happen to Lace in Light now? We will leave the website up to help archive this time period of photography. We hope Lace in Light will continue to motivate photographers, inspire client's, and provide educational tips for this industry. If you have submitted to us and we said yes, please feel free to submit elsewhere. As of today, we will no longer be updating this site.

Lauren Demby's Marilyn Monroe inspired boudoir shoot is timeless. The natural light shines beautifully across the model's face. Lauren wanted to celebrate the model's sexuality without being too revealing or provocative. Well, she did just that, featuring a stunning wardrobe from Bare Necessities. In a society where women are constantly objectified as sexual objects to sell anything from clothes to beer, Lauren does an amazing job of displaying how women can be their own sexual beings without the approval or objectification of their bodies.
It is clear that Lauren has the ability to help her clients feel comfortable when shooting with her. Many women come to a boudoir shoot feeling nervous and uncomfortable with their bodies and sexuality. However, essentially every time by the end of the session their bold confidence shines through. This series showcases self-love and a women's worth without the need for outside validation. The boldness and genuineness of the series is what drew me to Lauren's photography.
From the Photographer | My approach to Fine Art Boudoir is to make the images timeless, classic, and organic without being to revealing or overly sexual. Fine Art Boudoir should celebrate a woman’s femininity by embodying romance and her unique beauty in every image. The inspiration for the session was Marilyn Monroe’s “Last Sitting,” a very sophisticated and timeless shoot. The shoot took place at a studio that was bare, except for the bed and sheets that we used as props. I wanted the environment to be clean and simple so it did not detract from the images. I wanted the studio to resemble the setting from the "Last Sitting" but have a more modern feel by including the brick and windows in some of the frames.
