All Boudoir Sessions Shot by Our Full-Time Female Photographer (unless otherwise requested)
All Photos Kept Completely Private, No Photos Used On Website or Advertising
You’re young. You’re beautiful. You’re unique. There are so many ways to capture this time of your life, but only boudoir photography sessions allow you to plan a day of pampering yourself, give you an excuse to dress in sexy outfits, and of course see yourself in a whole new way.
Getting its roots from early hollywood glamour portraits, modern boudoir sessions portray elegance and sensuality and have seen a rebirth across the country over the past decade. Sessions can be done in studio or on-location at a private indoor or outdoor setting. Boudoir sessions are usually motivated by brides wanting to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. Other occasions may include anniversaries, birthdays, valentine’s day, weight loss (or other body changes), and for servicemen overseas.

*A boudoir party yields less time and a smaller total of photos per girl than an individual session. If the boudoir party involves a bride who wishes to come away with enough photos for a keepsake that features more photos, we can add more time for the bride and upgrade her keepsake for a small, extra fee. Just let us know ahead of time.

Book Your Session
- Q? Who will be my photographer? A: Our amazingly talented photographer Lori. Meet her here.
- Q? I’ve never done a shoot like this before, do I need to know how to pose? A: 99% of the girls that come in are doing this for their first time. Your photographer will help you out the entire way and make you look your best.
- Q? When done as a wedding gift, when do brides give their husbands this special gift? A: Many brides used to have the gift presented to the groom the day of the wedding or in the evening after all the festivities were over. We’re finding that many of our current brides are now opting to give the groom this gift the evening before the wedding after the rehearsal activities conclude.

- Q? How many outfits should I bring? A: Bring plenty of options and then your photographer will help you make your final choices based on what may work best for the selection of sets in our studio. We encourage you to bring different types of outfits as well as shoes / heels / boots and perhaps jewelry such as different necklaces.
- Q? Should I bring music? A: Our studio is equipped with satellite radio, so we have plenty of music choices for you to choose and enjoy.
- Q? Where will I change? A: We have a private dressing room in our studio with a full length mirror and a makeup mirror.
