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.

Blue skies and green grass make for a beautiful boudoir background. But capturing the unpredictable lighting of the sun is not an easy task. Mackenzie shows her talent as she masters fluctuating natural light and demonstrates delight, despite the ambiguity of life in her photos. As Mackenzie and her model embrace the uncertainty of the outdoors, she exposes the elegance of unpredictability, both in nature and our bodies.
Mackenzie’s shoot starts with her model standing in a field, arms waving free shouting, “I don’t know what is happening, but hey, this is me!” so loud that you hear her confidence scream (and maybe giggle a little too). The tulle in the shoot creates mystique, showing hidden elegance in the presumed “roughness” of the outdoors. This contrast highlights the capacity to find beauty in all scenarios, despite our lack of control. Not only does the American flag serve as a special love note for her military husband, but it simultaneously mirrors an internal message of the freedom to love yourself. Letting humor and laughter guide the way, Mackenzie’s photographs portray the power of patriotism within.
From the Photographer | I love shooting outdoors, the possibilities are endless and I love the real deal when it comes to light! Since this session was for her future husband I wanted to add some softness to the outdoors with the tulle and romance with the flower crown. The flag scarf was the clients request as her fiancé was in the military. With the outdoors comes the inability to control everything, which made for a few laughs though; we almost had some cows as photo crashers.
