My name is Heather Sansanelli, owner of Royal Lune Photo. I specialize in boudoir and portrait photography in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Impressionist paintings, poetry, light, and the earth are what inspire me most. My work is real and raw, just like we are. Your relationship with yourself and your partner is deep, filled with gritty and organic moments. I have a strong passion for empowering people through photography. Growing up, I did not have a healthy view of my body. I went through life saying things like, "I could never wear that" or "I'm not pretty without my make-up on". Boudoir photography has become my passion, not only because I love helping others feel their best, but because it reminds me to be kind to myself, too. Society, unfortunately, has warped many of our beliefs concerning our bodies and self-worth. I know your session with me will empower you on your self-acceptance journey, whatever that might look like.

about

boudoir photographer in DFW


I have a B.A in Humanities and I am "one of those people" really love school. That being said, I enjoy reading and discussing philosophy, spirituality, literature, and different worldviews. Deep conversation is what I am all about and I love getting to know my clients. Being a classic introvert, my ideal evening is on my couch with a hot cup of tea and my cats on my lap. I do, however, also love adventure! I’m relatively daring and there is not a whole lot that scares me. You could say I'd be the first to kayak with the Orcas, skydive, or take a risk for "the shot". In fact, I have fallen down a waterfall trying to get "the shot". So you know, you could say I'm dedicated.

Most days I occupy my time playing video games (I love my Nintendo Switch), reading fantasy, hiking and exploring new places, taking photos (duh), watching movies (surreal horror is my jam), and spending time with my loved ones (mostly my cats).

"Time with cats is never wasted"

Freyja

Muninn

Muninn is my most recent rescue. I had no intention of adopting a third cat as Clive and Freyja are very bonded and happy as a pair. Before becoming a full-time photographer, I was a part time vet-tech. Muninn was dumped at my clinic at 4 weeks old. I couldn't help myself and brought him home. He molded into my dynamic really quick and quickly became Clive's shadow. He is still really young and full of mischief. As a Maine Coon mix he still has a lot of growing to do and will probably be almost as big as Clive. He loves pouncing on his siblings (to Freyja's dismay) and sleeping on his back with all his paws up in the air. 

If you made it to the end, I commend you for reading a full on paragraph about my cats. I'm pretty sure my cats about me is longer than my own, but that probably gives you a better idea of who I am. I have a huge heart for all animals and the vet-tech in me always wants to help animals of all kinds.

Meet my three fur children! Yes, I am THAT person that it obsessed with their cats. They are all over my social media and I honestly cannot take enough photos of them. All three are rescues, but came into my life at separate times. Clive is the oldest and is a Norwegian Forest Cat. I rescued him at 12 weeks old when I was in college back in 2013. He is super affectionate and dog like. He loves pillows and is often referred to as "the pillow prince".

Freyja is the second oldest. When I first adopted Clive, I had my childhood senior cat. Sadly, he passed away when Clive was around two and I knew I needed a companion for Clive as he is super social. I went to the Humane Society with the intention to get a male cat who could keep up with Clive (he is over 16 pounds and a few feet long). Instead, I fell in love with this tortie princess. She was 6 months old and on the euthanasia list due to being returned from a reoccurring infection. Obviously, that was enough for me to take her. She is the most innocent and sweet soul you will ever meet. I mean, if her photo doesn't show that I don't know what would.
