Tell us about your business!

Cheyenne: I'm a body positive boudoir photographer who is focused on and determined to empower women and femmes. I help women and femmes celebrate, embrace, and love their bodies — no matter what!

What accomplishment are you celebrating right now?

Cheyenne: I am SO SUPER PROUD that I am booked 6 months out and booked 35 sessions in 2 days when I re-opened my books!

What keeps you motivated?

Cheyenne: My younger self motivates me to do what I do. I am so proud that I'm someone that I needed when I was younger. The biggest reward is that I am lucky enough to have a platform where I can help people how I needed to be helped when I was a kid/young woman.

What's one tip you want to share with other entrepreneurs?

Cheyenne: Dig deep. Keep pushing. Work your ass off. Spend time with people you love.
