Finally see how the world sees you; as your beautiful, beautiful self

Molly opened Zealous Stills in 2017. With her two small children on her hip, she created the brand that is now recognized all over the country.

“I wanted to create an environment that allows women to shamelessly be the be most beautiful woman in the room. When women are allowed to be confident, they turn into the best versions of themselves.”

Molly’s work has been published in
Philosophie Magazine, Model Citizen Magazine and Nabalo Magazine. She is a featured photographer of the AIBP, and seen on Bored Panda.

Molly has multiple awards from the Association of International Boudoir Photographers including “Top 10 best of 2017 & 2018,” “Weekly Contest Winner” and multiple “Daily Choice” awards.

“To say my boudoir experience with Molly (and the other ladies I met that day) was amazing would be a huge understatement. I am like so many women. Even with the love and constant encouraging words from my S.O. my confidence in my body isn't always great. But the time I spent doing this was... well... I have felt gorgeous each and every moment since then. Molly is wonderful and genuine. Her compliments are true and uplifting. She made me feel so comfortable. I could go on and on. Putting such a positive experience into words is not at all possible. And in the end... after such a wonderful time... you get these amazing pictures that you will not only treasure forever, but will remind you of that perfect day every time you look at them. I originally did this for my fiancé as a gift. Turns out it was more for me than it was for him.”
