BOUDOIR

'I have learned more and more to enjoy my body when I have a few extra pounds on, just being more voluptuous. I say, focus on the body part that you feel most comfortable about.' ~Fergie

WHAT IS BOUDOIR?

The word ‘boudoir’, pronounced, BOO-DWAHH, is French for the word bedroom. So to call a photo session a bedroom session, would suggest, private, personal, and intimate. Thus, why we call our art ‘Intimate Portraiture’.

Although we could never possibly list ALL the reason you should have this done, we can certainly list a few….

If you are engaged, there is no better gift than a Little Black Book to give to your soon-to-be before your wedding. Best “almost spouse” ever is what you will be! Who doesn’t want to start their marriage off as already being the best wife or husband a person could have! Plus...Click here to continue reading

 

'There are flowers everywhere, for those who bother to look.' Henri Matisse

'The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.' ~Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful! ~Steve Maraboli

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A BOUDOIR SESSION

From beginning to end, you will feel like your hanging out with some old, long lost friends. Well, not that old, but you get what we mean. :D It will feel like you’re hanging out at the coolest most funnest sleep over you have ever had!

When you arrive, Angie and Angela will help you get your lingerie hung and situated. If you have purchased lingerie from us for your session, we are more than happy to hold it here at the studio until your session day; this helps keep your session a surprise if you are doing this as a gift for someone special. Then the magic and fun starts! Booking one of our session packages that include hair and makeup application...Click here to continue reading

'What is this drive to be thinner, prettier, better dressed, other? Who exactly is this other and what does she look like beyond the jacket she’s wearing or the food she’s not eating? What might we be doing, thinking, feeling about if we didn’t think about body image, ever?' ~Caroline Knapp

'I have a crumble baby belly, boobs are worse for wear after two kids…I’m doing all right. I’m 33. I don’t look in the mirror and go, “Oh, I look fantastic!”. Of course I don’t. Nobody is perfect. I just don’t believe in perfection. But I do believe in saying, “This is who I am and look at me not being perfect!”. I’m proud of that.' ~Kate Winslet

“I’m beautiful to the one person who matters...I'm beautiful to me.” ~Rae Carson

WHY A CONSULTATION?

Consultations are an absolute MUST! There is just no way something so personal, so amazing, and so intimate can be produced without knowing the amazing you, personally! Either in the studio or Skype or Face Time, we simply have to get to know you in order to make your boudoir session and the entire experience the very best that it can be.

The consultation also gives you the opportunity to learn about Angie and Angela, how the session will go, and what to expect before, during and after the session. You also get to use this very important time to choose what session package you want to book, and to see all the beautiful products we offer along with all the pricing.

During your consultation you will get to see our...Click to continue reading

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK A CONSULTATION?

We highly recommend coming in for your consultation at least 3 months before needing your prints and products. If you want them for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Wedding Day, Anniversary, or any other special occasion we recommend coming in for your consultation at least 4 months before you need your prints or products. We stay extremely booked and we want to be sure we can have your beautiful and amazing gift in time, but if you find yourself reading this and you need your prints and products sooner than that go ahead and contact us because we may have an opening we can squeeze you into...Click here to continue reading

'How much time have I wasted on diets and what I look like? Take your time and your talent and figure out what you have to contribute to this world. And get over what the hell your butt looks like in those jeans!' ~America Ferreira

'I had to grow to love my body. I did not have a good self-image at first. Finally it occurred to me, I’m either going to love me or hate me. And I chose to love myself. Then everything kind of sprung from there. Things that I thought weren’t attractive became sexy. Confidence makes you sexy.' ~Queen Latifah

Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between. It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box…Think outside of the box…Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you. ~ Tyra Banks

YOUR PRIVACY

We take privacy VERY seriously at our boudoir studio. We are all too familiar with the fact that what goes on the Internet, stays on the Internet. FOREVER. We have the utmost respect for our clients and their privacy. WE WILL NEVER EVER BREAK THE TRUST OF OUR CLIENTS! EVER!

 

If you never want anyone other than you and whoever you decide to share your intimate portraits with to see your images then that is exactly what will happen. Your images will never be published anywhere without your permission. We are not trying to build a portfolio with your images. We already have a very large and extensive portfolio, and we only care about creating stunning images that will totally wow YOU, not the world.

 

If you are fine with your images being published on our website, blog and social media, but you don’t want anyone to be able to recognize you...Click here to continue reading

'To all girls with butts, boobs, hips and a waist, put on a bikini – put it on and stay strong.' ~Jennifer Love Hewitt

'How I feel about myself is more important than how I look. Feeling confident, being comfortable in your skin — that's what really makes you beautiful.' Bobbi Brown

AFTER YOUR SESSION

Once we have made tons of magic in the studio, and had the time of our lives making it, we then prepare the magic for your Viewing & Ordering Session. Angie quickly gets to work editing your images; she then designs a sample digital album for you, and then puts them all together into a beautiful slideshow. Prepare to be wowed when you come back! No one has ever been disappointed by the finished product we produce. We have even had ladies cry because of how beautiful they look. We love what we do so much. We get to change people’s lives, their perception of how they think they look and skyrocket their self confidence into outer space!

 

We book your Viewing and Ordering Session exactly two weeks after your Boudoir Session, or a date at least two weeks after your session depending on your availability, or your honey’s...Click here to continue reading
