Laura Kay Saucedo
Inspire Boudoir Photographer
I am sure you are wondering who the heck the person is you will be spending such an intimate and kick ass time with - I am Laura, owner and creator of Inspire Boudoir here in Austin, Texas. I have lived in Austin my whole life, graduated from Texas State University with a Fine Art degree in Photography, and now live with my husband and 3 dogs in South Austin.
Through a passion of photography and the realization all women desire to feel inspired, feminine, and empowered, I have cultivated a strong business to help women experience self-discovery and inspiration. I use nature as a tool to bring clarity and focus back into our busy and multifaceted lives. We all need a breath of fresh air, away from it all.
