I want to show another side of myself. I want to get out of my comfort zone but still be me.
What Distinguishes Us from Other Studios
We differ from typical boudoir photography studios in a number of ways. We master a much broader set of photographic genres, including creative, striking and often unconventional lighting techniques, resulting in imagery that is much more compelling, impactful and personal. Every photo shoot is fully customized for each client to provide her with exactly the type of imagery she wants and to capture her true essence; we consider our shoots an “artistic collaboration” with our clients! Other studios provide imagery that can look staged, overposed, less natural, and less you. And we guarantee your satisfaction in writing, in your contract!
Our clients have ranged from 18 to 68, including brides, moms-to-be, couples, dancers and other entertainers, women seeking a deeply personal gift to celebrate an anniversary or birthday, or just seeking a special gift for themselves to celebrate a milestone or to create a keepsake of themselves.
- consultation (in person, by phone or email) to plan your photo shoot. Every shoot is different, and yours will be fully customized for your needs, including genres, wardrobe, lighting and poses.
- a 1-3+ hour professional photo shoot scheduled at your convenience in our studio, a hotel, your home or other location of your choice
- a professional makeup artist and/or hairstylist (optional)
- hundreds of digital proofs for you to review within 1-3 days of your shoot, delivered securely online
- professionally-edited, high-resolution digital images delivered securely within a few days after you make your selections
- a professionally-prepared photo book and other printed products, delivered directly to you (optional)
No modeling experience? Never did a photo shoot? Don’t worry! Ninety percent of our clients have never modeled before. We’ll guide you through the process for a great shoot!
Boudoir & Fine Art Photography
We’ll work with you to create an unforgettable boudoir photo shoot designed especially for you. We’re accomplished across many genres of photography, including traditional boudoir, glamour/pin-up, bridal boudoir, maternity boudoir, couples boudoir and fine art nude photography.
Helping Models Succeed
One of our specialties is helping models develop or update their portfolios and develop their modeling opportunities. If you’re the right model, we sometimes provide your photos at no charge in consideration of your modeling time. This helps us with various projects and helps us build our own portfolio, too. In the business, it’s referred to as TFP or “Time For Prints.” To see if we’re currently accepting applications for TFP clients through our Aspiring Models Program, please see the listings on our Model Casting Calls page.
