What's In My Bag?

When I first fully ventured into photography in 2007, I was interested in learning what equipment other creatives were using to help create their photographs. Since then, I am frequently asked what are some of my favorite cameras, lens, and tools, so here is it!


  • Canon 5D Mark IV - Primary camera

  • Canon 5D Mark III - Backup camera


  • Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II  - this is my current versatile, go-to lense, but my preferences change throughout the year.

  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L

  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II 



  • Westcott Icelight 2 - provides a soft, beautiful, and controlled light source when needed.

  • Godox AD200 w/ modifiers

  • Canon speedlights

I utilize the gorgeous, natural light in my Longmont studio, but I do use various lighting setups, and techniques when I want to create different stylized imagery.


  • Kelly Moore Libby Bag - favorite for everyday to/from studio, very stylish!

  • Hex Calibre Backpack - favorite for destination/air travel—this nifty bag fits everything I need and also acts as a carry-on if traveling.

  • Shootsac - favorite shoulder lens bag for on-location sessions—this soft and bendable bag keeps everything in reach while shooting.

Camera straps:

  • Spider Pro camera hand strap + holster: favorite strap while I’m working in the studio.

  • Holdfast Money Maker: favorite strap on-location outdoors.

A few other things you'll find in my bag: camera batteries, sd memory cards + holder , Mefoto travel tripod, reflector, eneloop batteries, laptop, gum, pocket fold-up flats, instax, notepad and creative shoot-through items (prizm, lace, etc).


Miss "K" Engagement Boudoir | Longmont, CO Boudoir Photography

This experience DEFINITELY changed the way I see myself! It's so easy to be hard on ourselves, but Lanett's work is simply beautiful and you feel beautiful while she is shooting you."


"My friend Natalie told me about how great Lanett, was and I was interested in getting pictures done. She suggested the Beauty and Boudoir Studio, so I gave it a try and loved every minute!"

"I really enjoyed the studio experience along with the guidance. I've never done a boudoir photo shoot before, so I really enjoyed trying and feeling all these different positions. Lanett has a great eye for lighting, poses, and a creative mind to try new things too, which I really liked."


"I did not have any concerns. While driving there I had some butterflies in my tummy but once I met Lanett, I felt so comfortable. Before you knew it, we were giggling like two little school girls. :)"


"My session was awesome! I really felt like Lanett and I were vibing well, which lead us to trying different poses. I enjoyed having the variety when choosing my photos. I had a blast with Lanett! I would go back and do more in a heartbeat."

"I would tell anyone interested in a boudoir session that they are going to have an awesome time with Lanett and will feel totally comfortable doing the shoot with her. I know some women might feel intimidated, but Lanett is great about encouraging to do this for your own self esteem and appreciation."


"I really enjoyed not only seeing my photos that Lanett took but the photos of every other woman as well. We as women need to continue to lift each other up and encourage each other that we are all beautiful in our own ways! Girls Unite!"

Thank you to Miss K for sharing her gorgeous images along with her story.

Confident Curves | Longmont CO Boudoir Photography

My gorgeous friend and studio stylist got in front of my camera recently ...  I think you will agree she rocked her session and gorgeous curves.  Miss M agreed to share her session to inspire others to celebrate their curves as well!


"Last year I did a session with Lanett and loved it! I did the session for me and to embrace my beauty in that moment. This time around I found myself in a great year-long relationship with a gentleman, and I wanted to do these pictures for his birthday! I chose the Beauty & Boudoir Studio again because I knew Lanett would capture the romantic, sultry, enduring, playful sides of me!!! And she did just that!!!"


"It was fun and empowering! I was reminded of how beautiful I am inside and out!


"I couldn't stop looking at them, and I know my significant other will feel the same!!"

"This is the most empowering and self loving experience ever! Empowering ourselves as women is the greatest gift we can give ourselves! The Beauty & Boudoir Studio helps with this process, and I am forever grateful!"


"I definitely believe this experience changed the way I see myself! I found a new confidence and that is such a good feeling!"

I loved capturing these images for such a true beauty. Celebrating different stages in life with boudoir is one of the most empowering photo sessions you will ever experience.  

Special thanks to Miss M for trusting me to capture her boudoir experience, loving the process, and sharing her words with others.

Miss "J" | Portland OR Boudoir

Reason 345,693,291 why I love shooting boudoir! Meet Miss J...

Throughout my life I have struggled with my body image. As a teen I did a lot of modeling, so I was always hyper focused about my appearance. At age fourteen and a height of 5'11" I weighed only 135lbs, yet I distinctly remember the modeling agency telling me I was overweight and needed to cut back--this was devastating for me. Eventually I got out of the biz, but I continued to worry about my weight and being thin. I'm twenty-seven now, and have finally realized that I am beautiful and healthy at whatever weight I happen to be. It was this realization that led me to The Beauty & Boudoir Studio! I chose to do the boudoir photo shoot with Lanett to celebrate myself and my body in all its beautiful forms.

I wasn't nervous about being in my skivvies or birthday suit, but I was concerned that I would be an awkward model who made the wrong face/pose and ruined the photos! However, Lanett was incredibly good at posing me and telling me how to form my facial expressions or when to relax my face!

The photoshoot was a blast! Lanett was personable and funny. We chatted casually throughout the shoot and her excitement after snapping a particularly sexy photo was so adorable! The session felt more like taking photos with a best friend rather than with a complete stranger.

What I liked most about the experience was the boost in self-confidence I felt during and after the photo shoot. Lanett made me feel so beautiful, and I was on cloud nine even before I had the chance to see the photos! And of course Lanett has a real eye for this stuff, so the photos turned out to be absolutely stunning.

I would tell anyone thinking about doing this not to think twice about it! Working with The Beauty & Boudoir Studio is not something you will find yourself regretting. There's no risk. You may feel nervous or awkward at first, which is completely natural, but it won't be long before you're laughing and having fun with it. Whether you're a professional model or a single mom, your photos are going to turn out beautifully and the confidence boost you're left with will make you feel like you can take on any challenge!

I feel more confident, beautiful, and accepting of my curvy body. Best decision of 2017!
