Reason #547: A Fun Day (and What to Expect)

Most women are nervous to "do this thing that is totally out of my comfort zone", feel like you would never normally feel, and, it’s probably safe to say, look a way that you’ve never looked before.

First, you’ll be greeted with a smile (and probably a hug - we are totally huggers!)

Then, prepare for your jaw to drop as you take in the vastness of outfits, shoes and more in our Glam Room. We LOVE the comments when women come in and are completely blown away at what they have to choose from - since pictures don't do this area justice.

After a tour of our adorable - and oh, so giant studio and sets - get ready for a relaxing & pampering experience! You'll get comfortable in a cozy robe and spa slippers, and settle in with complimentary beverages and snacks. "She-mergency" items - all the care items you might need - are ready for you in your private dressing room.

We all start to feel like insta-girlfriends from the second you sit in our glam chair and start gabbing about life, love and everything else! Our professional creative artists will take care of your makeup application and hair styling (false eyelashes are non-negotiable in this situation & complimentary clip-in hair extensions give the pictures an extra WOW factor).

While we are glamming you up, we will talk all about you: your personality, your reason for doing the shoot, your vision, and of course...your insecurities. You may not feel confident to start, but our goal is to have you feeling beautiful, sexy, empowered and loved by the end of your shoot. We want to do whatever we can to help make you feel comfortable in your skin.

Our closets are overflowing with gorgeous lingerie (and can be overwhelming!), but trust us... (remember...we are already pretty much "besties" at this point): we know the closets and drawers inside and out, and we have tons of experience knowing what looks flattering and shoots well. We'll have fun working together to select sets, outfits and props that will help achieve your vision.

By the time we are ready to start shooting, you are comfortable with us adjusting those tricky garter belts straps. Although we are strangers just a bit ago, all of this seems totally normal.

Comfort = confidence, so this is HUGE for the NEXT PART....yikes....

....time to drop that robe! But don't worry - this actually turns out to be the BEST PART! We'll guide you into figure-flattering poses and coach you through every flirty glance and sultry stare. We work with you as a team of two for your private session, so we can give you our undivided attention and focus on & pamper you! The biggest sigh of relief will come when the coaching and directing begins. It's not going to feel natural, and no surprise here: no one really has a clue what looks sexy - and even though something mischievous or flirty kicks in - there's not really a certainty that comes with it.

Our directions include things like: arch your back here, look over this way, and chin out & down...(or we just say we're "Comin' in hot!" and adjust what needs to be adjusted for you!). We'll even get into the pose ourselves to show you how to do it!

You’ll do a variety of poses— and before you know it, we'll have captured tons of images that we can't wait to show you! And here is the bottom line: Doing this is fun—like, stupid fun—and you will undoubtedly, at the very least, have pictures you'll love at the end of it all.

Some advice? We know you'll be tempted to try to copy an image you've seen online, but although that can be a good starting point, it usually takes up so much time trying to recreate the picture and pose 'exactly' like the model (and to be honest...most times it doesn't work out). Focusing your energy on getting comfortable with your team and trusting them as they direct you, is the best way to walk away with photos you'll love.

Remember: there are some really bad boudoir photos out there. We have seen WAY too much of it and it scares us. Deeply. So, (pretty please) take a good hard look into the boudoir work of any photographer you're considering doing this with. A photographer with massive boudoir experience will you have the best chance at amazing images if you choose a photographer with massive boudoir experience - one who really knows what they're doing.

We decided in the beginning of this journey, that if we were going to do this - we wanted to be the best. We have sacrificed so much, invested not only blood, sweat & tears - but also our hard-earned money - into making this studio the BEST boudoir photography studio in the WORLD! From the sets, to hair/makeup to the outfits and more: we have invested more than other photographers just can't or won't do. To make the shoots the best they can be for YOU.

If you are not convinced by the amazing reviews - or by our team and mission - or by what we have to offer in our wardrobe, sets and more - and you are still thinking of another photographer, we strongly suggest coming to meet us and tour our studio...and you will be convinced!


These photographs will leave you (and your sweetie!) breathless...but it's not just about taking a pretty’s the experience & what you take away from it. Quit thinking that you'll never look "like that". We wear many hats as women & make so many sacrifices. We are all too often our own worst critic, and as women, we know how we can be!

Take away an awesome experience, and amazing photographs that will remind yourself that you are a beautiful, courageous, strong woman! It is truly one of the most amazing, empowering and fun experiences you will ever have.
