WHY THIS EXPERIENCE IS FOR YOU
A boudoir session is truly an empowering experience that many women have found to be life-changing. Whether you are being photographed for your fiancé, spouse, or as a gift to yourself, each session is meant to celebrate your beauty and empower you. We are here to help you on your journey towards self-love and confidence. Our purpose is to provide you with gorgeous, timeless photos that you will love.
We've helped everyday women feel pampered, beautiful, and refreshed, regardless of the season of life they are in. We create artfully elegant boudoir sessions and silhouette art for women. Boudoir photography is elegant, artistic, compelling, and powerful if done just right. There are so many misconceptions when it comes to Boudoir. In each session, we focus on capturing moments in women’s journies to reflect on where they are, where they’ve been, and where they’re headed. It’s our goal to reveal the beauty, vulnerability, strength, and enthusiasm of the women we photograph in the highest respect of the female form.
We’ll guide you on what to wear, how to prepare, how to pose, and more. We’ve found that many women whom we have had the opportunity to photograph raved about the empowerment and self-confidence they felt after seeing their portraits for the first time after a session. Every woman that we photograph has a story, and every story is beautiful and unique in its way.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Chris and Arleen were absolutely wonderful! I had a boudoir and portrait shoot with them and it was incredible! From the moment you get to their studio, it’s all about you! Makeup and hair are done on-site so you don’t have to worry about it! Chris makes you feel so confident throughout the shoot that makes the photoshoot go by so much smoother! The ambiance is just perfect! Playing your favorite artists throughout the session and Chris and Arleen guide you and show you how to properly do the poses!! At first, I was so scared about booking a boudoir session anywhere! Thankfully my best friend gifted me this! And I am so thankful for her! I would recommend Chris and Arleen to anyone!! I’ve been sooooo in love with the final pictures!! Chris and Arleen are not only professionals but their work is just incredible!!
How far in advance do I need to book my shoot?
I recommend that you book your shoot 6-8 weeks before you need your pictures. Albums may take up to 4-6 weeks to produce. If you need it sooner I will try to accommodate you and do rush service.
I don't look like a model. Do you work with everyday women?
Not a problem! Honestly, even models often don't look like models in real life. They have cellulite, stretch marks, and acne-like every other human being. Having confidence and believing in yourself is what makes fantastic pictures. The glamour & boudoir sessions are all about having fun, getting glammed up, dressed up and letting your hair down, and forgetting about little insecurities. Treating yourself to new lingerie and beauty treatments before the session is a definite excitement and confidence builder!
I don't know how to pose. Will you guide me during a session?
Yes! You don't need to worry about a thing. I am well versed in posing and have even been known to strike a pose or two during our session together, too!.. Just don't laugh too hard. Lol. You can be sure that you always be guided to pose in a way that will flatter your features in the best lighting. During the session, you will be given straightforward directions on how to pose, such as "bring your chin forward," "look up at me with your eyes," "put your left hand on your left thigh," etc. My wife, who will be assisting you during the shoot, will also show you each poses personally, and if you allow—she will help you put a hand in the right position, fix your hair, etc.
I'm a plus-size woman—should I lose some weight before my shoot?
No- you are beautiful as you are right now. We have much experience working with curvy, plus-size women. What we can tell- it does not matter what your size is when it comes to posing, lighting, and photographing you in the most flattering way possible, in a way that stays true to the authentic sexy that you are. With our unique posing system, we can accentuate your curves and best features, take off some extra pounds, and disguise features you might not love, just with lighting and posing.
What should I wear to my boudoir photo session?
When you book your boudoir experience with us, you'll receive a complimentary wardrobe consultation and emails that will give you ideas on where to shop, what to look for and how to dress for your body type! Preparing a Pinterest board with outfit ideas that you love is also a great idea. From there, we can always guide you towards the best choices. Sessions typically allow time for 2-3 outfit changes. You are more than welcome to bring more outfits with you, and we will help you narrow it down. It is always good to have options. But don't worry- You'll be super prepared by the time your session is here!
Will my photos be on the internet? Can my photos be private?
Where will my boudoir session take place?
Sessions take place in our beautiful professional home photography studio. The studio is designed exclusively for boudoir and portrait sessions. Other locations (such as hotels, airbnb's, or even your house) are available upon request and additional fees. Our boudoir photography studio has multiple sets with different lighting, backdrops, and props to choose from. Hair and makeup are done right on location.
I have problem areas. Do you photoshop?
Professional photo retouching is included in your boudoir session. We specialize in the most comprehensive and detailed editing techniques and can enhance your images to your liking. It's important to note that we are not here to change you into someone you are not. We are passionate about creating stunning images that celebrate your individuality and one-of-a-kind beauty.
A male photographer? Um...
Ah yes, the proverbial "elephant in the room." Some women are unsure about a male boudoir photographer, and some actually prefer them. I guarantee a completely comfortable, professional, and FUN atmosphere. To ensure this, I work with an all-female team. Except for me, there will be no other men on-site during your shoot.
Who will be at the shoot?
For all my sessions, I will have an all-female team to assist me. That being said, you can absolutely bring one girlfriend with you (as long as you'll feel comfortable posing in front of her and she is there to cheer you on). Please note that we do not allow partners in the studio while we are shooting. That's a firm policy.
Do you provide lingerie at the studio?
For sanitary reasons, I do not offer a client closet. I keep a few accessories on hand, like sheer sheets and other items you may wear over your body. You are not alone in selecting your outfits! Depending on what you describe feeling sexiest in, we'll discuss options together and plan your looks accordingly. I also provide all of my clients with a wardrobe guide, including an extensive list of online and in-person lingerie retailers. I curated this list with every body type and cup size in mind. :)
Do you photograph men or couples boudoir?
Not for these types of shoots. Boudoir can be perceived in several different ways, but to me, it's all about celebrating you and all of the amazing things in this life that you have overcome.
Do I have to use your makeup artist and hairstylist, or can I do my own?
Professional hair and makeup are included in all of my sessions. Makeup for boudoir is much different from the makeup you use for everyday life. It is also a way for you to relax before your shoot and feel pampered before we get into this style of poses. My local makeup artist will work with you to create the perfect look for your photos.
