The BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE
FINE ART NUDE PORTRAITS | MODERN WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHY | MATERNITY BOUDOIR
The Beauty & Boudoir experience is an all-inclusive intimate photography session, designed to capture the essence of your beauty as a woman, and crafting timeless and empowering portraits that underly your uniqueness.
From the moment that we meet to the reveal of your images, you will be provided with the most personalized and unparalleled experience.
SENSUAL. INTIMATE. REAL.
Femininity is delicate and majestic altogether.
Through maternity it can also feel pretty raw.
I invite you to experience modern boudoir as a gesture of kindness and honor,
as a pathway to reconnect with yourself, parts of you that, maybe, went missing over the years.
Or versions of you that you would like to explore and embrace.
Let it be a journey to reconnect with deeper layers of yourself,
aligning your body and mind as a whole, reigniting your sensuality.
SEXY IS NOT A SHAPE.
It's a feeling.
First, let's tackle some myths...
WHAT BOUDOIR DOESN'T HAVE TO BE:

You get to decide what you are comfortable showing: nudity, implied nudity, or suggestive coverage is entirely up to you.
The consultation is there to ensure that we are on the same page before we even start designing your session. Whichever scenario you are choosing, you can relax knowing we will have fun and create amazing images within your comfort zone.
Flashy bright pink underwear, piggy tails, corporate executive tie, high school skirts? Not today, Britney.
You will be provided a selection of brands that I like to work with, that are creating beautiful garment that photograph very elegantly. We want edgy. We want raw. We want true. From there, I believe that you will shine brighter.
Modern retouching means that my approach to body enhancement is very high-end and comprehensive. My rule is to remove everything that is not permanent (pimples, stray hairs) and soften the shadows (dark circles, skin irregularities, etc.). I keep your skin texture (crazy, I know...), and what makes you, you.
This is what empowerment looks like.
You want to see something specific out? I got your back.
But if you want a smoothing fairy filter, that's a job for social media apps.
Surely you can gift your photos to your significant other. Yes you can share with your social media admirers if you are bold like that. It is exciting to see yourself under a new light, in full power mode, and it's only fair to show off a little bit!
But this experience is mostly for yourself, and I guarantee that these photos will mean more to you than a sexy 2021 calendar for your fiancé.
Beauty isn't defined by a size, a shape, or an age. And sexy is definitely more of a feeling than a garment. You certainly don't have to look a certain way to be magnetic, charming, sensual and gorgeous. The beautiful women that are featured here aren't models for most... But I bet you can't tell me which!
All the women featured on my website gave their written consent to be published. Some wanted to keep a surprise long enough before it gets 'live'. Other were comfortable with certain images being displayed, and wanted to keep some other private. I value privacy and will always honor their trust. Shall you want to keep everything private, it's perfectly fine.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT?
ALL-INCLUSIVE LUXURY PHOTO COLLECTIONS
The Beauty & Boudoir Experience begins with the in-person consultation with me (depending on your location, this can be done through Zoom as well) to get to know each other better, go over the process together, and get you fully prepared.
All Collections include a full professional hair & makeup styling, access to the studio props, the photoshoot time with easy flow posing, multiple outfit or backdrop changes, comprehensive high-end retouching, and the reveal and ordering session where you select your final images and can order beautiful enlargements & products.
WHEN SHOULD I GET BOUDOIR PICTURES?
THE PERFECT POST PARTUM REBOUND
Once you are mostly recovered from childbirth, catching up on a little bit of sleep, and start feeling the urge to get some of your old self back, a boudoir photoshoot can help you embrace this new version of you.
EVERY TIME YOU ARE CONSIDERING IT
If you are feeling attracted to the images that you are seeing, and are wondering how your own images would look like, it's time that you take the leap and find out! Being triggered emotionally usually means that something in you is ready to shift. So let's take action! Let's chat a little bit together. No strings attached.
Most of my client start to get photos for a very specific purpose, and are now coming back to me because they feel the urge to capture something new within themselves. I call that 'milestone photoshoots', and it really is a great way to document your life and keep track of your growth.
CHANGE THE NARRATIVE.
YOU'VE BEEN CRITICIZING YOURSELF FOR YEARS, AND IT HASN'T WORKED.
Try approving yourself, and see what happens.
WHAT TO WEAR FOR MY BOUDOIR SHOOT?
TIMELESS ELEGANCE & CLASSIC CHIC
During your consultation we will go over your current wardrobe and discuss how we can use the pieces that you already have and that you love. My aim is to create timeless images, that stand the test of time, so you will be thoughtfully guided through what to borrow or purchase.
You will have full access to my Studio wardrobe that features comfortable wraps, and elegant silky fabrics.
NUDE OR NUDE IMPLIED PHOTOGRAPHY
Fine art nudes like black and white silhouettes or implied nudes pictures are gorgeous ways to capture intimate portraits elegantly. You will always show as little or as much as you want, and we will cover the type of image you want and how comfortable you feel during your consultation. No surprises, just the fun.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT?
EXPERT FLOW-POSING AND SIMPLICITY
Photographing every women is what I do best. The women that are featured on my website aren't models; they are women like you and me, that were continuously guided and put at-ease throughout their session. With the right guidance, you will feel as confident as a cover girl!
As a non-model myself, I absolutely understand how it feels to be camera shy, not feel quite like yourself, or feeling self-conscious. My mission is to help you being present in the moment so your inner-strength can shine through... and to have a lot of fun along the way!
DO I HAVE TO BE NAKED?
This experience will be designed to show a more sensual, intimate, or vulnerable side of you. We will discuss your comfort level during your consultation, and design your session from there, but no one really knows how he will feel once on-set. This experience is your experience. We take our time. You won't be exposed and we will move slowly through the process so you can assess how you are feeling so we can slow down or take a leap!
NEVER ALLOW WAITING TO BECOME A HABIT.
Live your dreams, and take risks.
Life is happening now.

COMPREHENSIVE & DETAILED APPROACH
During the consultation we will discuss the details you want us to take care of, leave as-is, or feature. Some women don’t want to show their stretch marks, and some do want to see them as inherently part of their story: I will always accompany you to create a true work of art that best represents you.
