What is boudoir?
The word "boudoir" is French and refers to a woman's private bedroom or dressing room, which reflects the nature of the photography style.

Visually, boudoir images can range from soft and romantic to seductive and daring, all of which is up to the goals & preferences of the client.
Simply put, boudoir celebrates your beauty in every stage of life.
  • Getting married... or divorced

  • Celebrating a birthday

  • Having your first child

  • Confronting a health concern

  • Showing off a new tattoo

  • Celebrating a physical feat

  • Wanting to indulge in a moment of self-love

  • I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO POSE, WILL YOU HELP?
    Posing is my specialty—no modeling experience required. I will literally pose you from your fingertips to your toes and guide you through every facial expression. All you have to do is show up and have fun! My team and I will take care of the rest.
  • DO I HAVE TO GET NAKED?
    Absolutely not. There is no pressure whatsoever to remove any kind of layer you feel uncomfortable with. Plenty of my clients have opted for a more subtle, glam-style photoshoot rather than traditional boudoir—others are comfortable ditching their clothes the minute they arrive to their session. Either way it's 100% your choice!
  • I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO WEAR... HELP!
    As soon as you book your session, we'll hook you up with our signature wardrobe prep guide to help you find the perfect pieces to flaunt your body, complete with links and references. We got you. Plus you'll also get a link to create a shared Pinterest board where we'll be able to get a better idea of your style & aesthetic... So don't worry—we'll be with you every step of the way!
  • WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
    We typically suggest booking your session 3-4 weeks out from the date of your consultation—this will give you adequate time to prepare your wardrobe and schedule any self-care appointments. If you are booking a session with the intention of gifting an album or images by a specific date (like a wedding, anniversary, birthday etc...), we strongly recommend booking your session date at least 3 months in advance of your gifting date due to the turnaround time needed for editing, product design, and printing.
  • WHERE WILL MY BOUDOIR SESSION TAKE PLACE?
    The majority of our sessions take place in our in-home studio in Madison, WI. Hair and makeup is done right on location, so you don't have to worry about anything other than showing up. There are some clients who would like to shoot in a hotel. If this is you, please let us know in your inquiry which hotel you are considering and we'll figure out the details from there.
  • WILL MY IMAGES BE SHARED ONLINE?
    Not unless you say it’s okay! Privacy is extremely important to us, so if you decide you don’t want your pictures shared, your images will be kept 100% confidential.
  • DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS?
    Yes we do. We understand that your boudoir experience can feel like an investment so we've designed multiple payment options to make boudoir more budget friendly... including payment plans with perks!
  • AHHH I'M SO NERVOUS... ARE YOU SURE I CAN DO THIS?
    Listen up ladies... don't you dare think for a second that boudoir is only for one type of woman. Boudoir is for every single one of you fierce and fabulous ladies out there no matter your size, shape, age, or lack of experience in front of a camera. Those pre-shoot jitters are 100% normal—but once you have a great time with us during your session and see how beautiful your images turn out, you'll be wondering why you didn't book a session years ago.
