IN HER OWN WORDS: 

This would be the part where I talk about how 'I have loved photography ever since I was able to hold a camera', or say 'I was always that person at the party taking photos'.  .  .  Yeah, that's not this gal.  

Truth be told, without trying to sound completely arrogant, I've just always had a knack for photography. It was one of the few things in my life that came naturally to me and as I got older, I realized how much I really enjoyed being behind the lens. 

I could bore with the details of how I fell into the art of Boudoir, but it's not very exciting. Typical story line, 'I want to be a photographer', and it just so happens that my niche is photographing beautiful half-naked, or in some cases fully naked women. 

But sarcasm aside, I truly LOVE what I do. I LOVE capturing the moments when women feel truly beautiful, confident and unabashedly in love with themselves! It’s awesome to see that switch flip when they remember their more than just a mom, just a teacher, just a waitress, just whatever. I love creating that safe space for women to feel good, let their insecurities go, and WANT to be in front of the camera. I love the art I get to create, I love my squad, and I love being able to call my passion my career.​​

Guilty pleasures:

Spending Saturday night at home in a good pair of sweatpants, snuggling with my cats (if they are feeling generous) and binge-watching Ghost Adventures. 

Super Hero or Super Villain, why?

 MEET THE MAVENS OF BEAUTY

H. PIPER SMITH-CRAWFORD

IN HER OWN WORDS:

I'm grateful I've had the opportunity to work this "beauty" thing for almost 30 years! Modeling at an early age piqued my interest in what all the industry could offer.

 

I majored in theatre with a concentration in theatrical makeup. This path would eventually lead me to a passion for bridal hair and makeup. Along the way though I made several pit-stops doing all manners of makeup application and hair decoration.

 

I've freelanced and worked behind-the-counter for several major cosmetics lines. I've worked on fashion shows, photo shoots, major motion pictures and a mini-series. I'm also a Licensed Cosmetologist currently working out of Studio 509 Salon/Spa and JKW Beauty Boutique, both located in Frederick, Md.

Inspiring women and helping them to witness their beauty resonates with and incentivizes me to do what I do. I love the work that NFP does, because it is a natural extension of what I've been working towards for over two decades.

Favorite quote: 

GAAAAAH! It's SO hard to choose!! I like this one: "Don't be strategic or coy. Strategic and coy are for jackasses. Be brave. Be authentic. Practice saying the word 'love' to the people you love so when it matters the most to say it, you will.”

Go-to karaoke song:

"Raise your Glass" by Pink is not only my go-to karaoke song, but my go-to song. Period.

Fun fact:

TRACEY L. JENKINS

IN HER OWN WORDS:

I’m 48 years old and I love to laugh and be a ray of positivity in this often hard and cold world. I love sewing, cooking, motorcycles, cars and oh yeah, MAKEUP! :D

There’s nothing like the rush that comes when you finish a woman’s face and hand her mirror and she gets that first reveal. She’s seeing herself in the light in which she was meant to be created. Fiercely female and beyond beautiful. Everybody should get to experience that at least once in their lives.

Working with NFP is like finding a new family. From the moment when I first arrived on set for the first collaborative shoot, I felt like I was among friends. Nothing changes the tone and success of a shoot like the right synergy behind the scenes, and these ladies are GOLDEN.

Super Hero. I use my powers strictly for GOOD!

AMY STANSFIELD

IN HER OWN WORDS:

It all started with my first job as a shampoo girl at a local salon. Originally I wanted to be a Kindergarten teacher, but quickly fell in love with the world of beauty. That love drove me to pursue my cosmetology license, which I have had now for 5 years!  In 2017 I launched my own mobile hair business, Looking Glass Beauty, which is based in the Northern VA area. Along with hair, my passions include all things lashes!! Whether it be eyelash extension or a lash lift I love providing beautiful sets for my clients! 

I met Nicole back in 2016, during my OWN boudoir shoot, and instantly fell in love with her, the team and the EXPERIENCE! The positivity and atmosphere she creates at her shoots - I knew I wanted to be a part of that. To help other women feel as strong, sexy and empowered as I felt during my boudoir experience. So in true fan-girl fashion I mildly stocked her and was always quick to help with any portfolio building or light testing. During those times Nicole mentioned she was in the process of growing her squad and looking for a new stylist/assistant. I immediately jumped at the opportunity and haven't looked back! I love working this tribe of talented women, the MOB Squad, who truly love bringing out the beauty and confidence in every woman who walks through the studio doors.
