In 2017, I got a job working as a staff accountant doing data entry in an office with no windows (I absolutely HATE math, btw.) Needless to say, by 2018, I was either going to run away to join the circus due to reasons of insanity, or put on my big girl pants and leave the security of my dead-end job.

With the support of my husband (and a few glasses of liquid courage), I left that job and opened my own satellite boudoir studio!

Shortly after leaving, I couldn't help but notice one of my friends was struggling with the same dissatisfaction I had been. This friend was Melanie, and she confessed that she wanted more from her career, to serve others, be creative and be her own boss.

So I asked her to do something crazy like quit her job, learn photography and join my team...and she did!  

And finally, I met our makeup artist Kristin in early 2017 when I happened to book her for a makeover at Sephora. I told her,  "I don't care what you do, but do something fun". Some metallic blue lipstick and neon green eyeshadow later -we were thick as thieves.

LKNB is woman owned, women led and here to serve women.

xx Kristina

Doggo lover. Dad joke connoisseur. Cannot walk in heels but owns a closet full of them. Would run through fire for a mocha coffee, but still can't order one properly from Starbucks. Would accept her body weight in queso and margaritas as payment.

Using her outside voice inside since 1986. Knows where to get the good cheap wine. Will totally rap every line to Gin And Juice without music. Not afraid to show off her sweet dance moves in public.

Most likely to wear hot pink eyeshadow and glitter in the grocery store. Firmly believes leggings are pants and has a very strong argument for it. Will definitely karaoke to the Spice Girls and hit all the high notes.

FRANKLY, WE JUST DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT "             " STANDARDS

Frankly, we just don't
give a damn about
"           " standards

Yup, not even Victoria's Secret models look like Victoria's Secret models in real life. According to industry professionals, no one is safe from drastic body modification in the dressing room and extreme photoshop retouching in Hollywood. 

Don't believe me? Read this.

I hope you have a strong stomach, though. You'll be shocked at how much is actually done to the female body in popular media.

(that's okay, no one does. literally, not even the models!)

It's true: 80% of men AND women all have some stretch marks by the time they reach adulthood. While weight gain sometimes does play a role in getting these scars, it's mostly genetic.

Women are more likely to get stretch marks during pregnancy, with an estimated 90% of all pregnant women developing their own tiger stripes by the time they deliver.

Basically, your stretch marks are even more normal than what you previously thought! Don't let them get in your way!

Science confirms that basically all women have cellulite and *gasp* IT'S FREAKING GENETIC!

And, cellulite doesn't give a damn if you're an adorable cherub faced 9 month old baby, 115 pound super model, plus size bodacious babe or a swole fitness queen -anyone and everyone can get it

I've got it. You've got it. Kim K probably has it. 

Just rock it!

IT'S SIZE SIXTEEN! Yup, that's right. The average size of a woman is 16 in the US and has been for nearly 10 years. Not only that, research shows that the US clothing size is a load of made-up bullcrap and it literally makes no sense!

Modern day clothing brands alter their "standard sizing" to appease who their target audience is with 'Vanity Sizing'. Aka, clothing sizes are just a marketing ploy and the number on the tag in your clothes is literally meaningless.

All the more reason even to not get caught up on a stupid number!

lets Stop self-deprecating. 




YOU ARE NOT TOO OLD for this. YOU ARE NOT TOO fat, too athletic, too skinny. Your scars don't matter. your teeth don't matter. you are not too shy, too "tomboy". Your stretch marks are not UGLY. YOUR boobs are perfect no matter what size. YOUR HAIR IS NOT TOO SHORT. 






You are more than enough!

Do you only shoot sexy stuff?


The day of your shoot, you'll have one hour with our beauty wizard, Kristin. She's going to get you looking glamorous for your session!  We offer a complimentary mimosa bar (by request) and some yummy snacks while your favorite booty shaking music plays in the background. 

After Kristin has worked her magic, the real fun begins! We'll pick your first outfit and spend a few minutes loosening you up with our incredibly corny dad jokes. After that, it's smooth sailing! Expect lots of cheers of "YAAAS QUEEN!" and "YOU'RE A TIGER, TIGER GORGEOUS DARLING" in a horrible British accent.

What is a session like?

Man, I can't wait for the day when we don't need to have this question on here...

Kristina is AMAZING! She knows how to make you feel comfortable and laugh while being in front of the lens! Her photos are MIND BLOWING and her style is just perfect. She did our engagement photos and we are having her shoot our big day as well! THATS how much we trust her skill and expertise!
The pictures just show how absolutely fierce and gorgeous she can capture you! I never have felt so gorgeous and sexy! Pictures speak for themselves!

"The pictures you took were amazing. I love them. I cant believe that beautiful girl is me. You have given me back something I have been missing for awhile, my confidence. I feel like a new woman. Thanks for remind me how beautiful I am. inside and out."

jade xx

I had the most amazing experience with lake Norman boudoir and moonchild beauty. I felt completely gorgeous, sexy, and confident in front of the camera. They made me feel so comfortable in my skin that I didn’t think about my insecurities for a second. My makeup and hair were flawless and each picture was more beautiful than the last! So fun. Can’t wait for my water pictures to be done! Thank you so much ❤️
