Boudoir sessions are an awesome way to get some great photos of yourself and have a "treat yourself" kinda day away from regular life stresses!
Why Should I do this?
Sure... I know what you are thinking... "This is totally weird and I'm not sure I want this strange chick to take pictures of me in my underwear." Well... while it is weird and kinda awkward its a really cool way to give a super personal gift to your loved one for your wedding day, anniversary gift or a sexy valentines day gift.
It's also a really great treat for yourself. Honestly, when do you get an hour to yourself to get your hair and makeup done and just feel really sexy? You can take this time for you - get away from the kids, every day life, planning for the wedding and just take some time feeling absolutely beautiful in your own skin.
Size does NOT matter! Every body is beautiful in its own way and we will be sure to focus on what you love the most about you!
what to expect
First we’ll touch base and review the plan for the session
We’ll get good and acquainted so when the camera comes out, captures don't seem forced or awkward
During the session we’ll make sure any adjustments to wardrobe, hair or set are made on the fly so all captures are optimal
Capturing portraits lasts 60 minutes
Prepare at least 2-3 changes of clothes
Check garments for tears or imperfections and remove tags
Shave/wax intimate areas
Avoid tan lines
Haircut or trim and Color touch-up
Brow Wax & Mani Pedi
Be mindful of what you wear day of to avoid tight bra or clothing lines
what to wear
Always bring a "safe" outfit to start in and once you get more comfortable we can kick it up a notch and bring out the more scandalous stuff ;)
Push-up bras. Snug tank tops and camisoles
Bikini or thong underwear. Boy shorts, cheeky panties
Anything sheer, flowy, floral, sweet, or romantic
Vintage lace. A little lace or silk robe.
Negligées, corsets or stockings
SOMETHING OF YOUR PARTNERS
A button down shirt
Military jacket or hat
His/her favorite jersey
SOMETHING FOR YOUR WEDDING
Your wedding day lingerie
Only a veil & undies
Your wedding heels
hair & makeup
Please note that hair & makeup is NOT included in my boudoir packages unless otherwise noted for a special.
Wear your hair down. Silky, cascading hair is seductive, and will allow for a variety of posing options. Bring along clips or accessories if you’d like to put it up for a few shots, maybe to show off body art or earrings.
Try not to wander too far outside your comfort zone. If you love being dressed up in sparkles and heels, then full-on dramatic makeup will look perfect on you. But if you’re more bohemian or sporty, it might not feel natural to go for all-out glam.
A good set of false lashes will make your eyes pop and is always flattering in portraits.
Consider having your hair and makeup done professionally. You won’t regret it.
Below are a few awesome makeup artists you can

Your order will be processed and completed within 2 weeks.
I will archive all of your images for one year so reordering is easy if wanted.
I will not post any of your personal photos to my website or social media without your written permission. These are highly personal photographs and I completely respect that. Everyone I post on my social media or website has given me permission to share their photos.
