Ms. B found me through one of the charity organizations that I love to support. I had donated a boudoir photoshoot to be raffled off at their October fundraiser and this lovely lady put all of her tickets on my prize … and won! I knew the moment I met her we would have an absolutely EPIC shoot.

At the beginning of the shoot she confessed to me that she was nervous however she was able to shake away those nerves and replaced them with confidence!

The first step in shaking off those nervous feelings is to commit to HAVING FUN. If you are enjoying yourself it will be reflected in your images, and seeing how amazing your images are will build your confidence.  This is how we establish the foundation for an amazing boudoir shoot: by having fun and feeling confident = SEXY.


Look at the confidence radiating from Ms. B! She’s so amazinggggg! She picked up on posing fairly quickly and worked her body into the most fabulous poses needing hardly any direction from me.


The studio flower wall was a perfect match with her golden locks and flawless skin. We kept the lingerie simple for this set and she wore a navy blue bra and panty set. No jewelry. Just Ms. B and her gorgeous face. 

We got sexy and dramatic for Ms. B’s next outfit: a stunning modern style black one piece with an open back. This dramatic piece called for sensual lighting with lots of mood.


This is one of my very favorite boudoir images I’ve ever taken.

Photographing the body for boudoir photography is all about angles and light.  By the time we took these images, Ms. B knew just what to do with her arms and no longer needed coaching from me.

Sexy. Classy. Elegant.


How great is her next outfit?!  In this shot Ms. B is wearing a half shirt and a cute pair of panties and is looking super sexy.  Another shot in this same outfit and similar pose is actually the centerfold for her boudoir album.  (I posted a snapshot of it recently on Instagram.)


Great job on that back arch, love. It’s a lot harder than it looks!!

Ms. B’s boudoir album was a gift for her boyfriend so we ended her shoot wearing one of his favorite shirts. The boyfriend/husband/fiance shirt is such a classic way to add a personal touch of him to your album.  Again, we kept it simple with a black bra and panty set, his shirt and a whole lot of sexy attitude from Ms. B.




The final product from our photoshoot is a gorgeous luxury boudoir album with a custom cover designed by Ms. B. The materials she chose for her album is so unique to her and I loooooove how the gold accent sets off the black leather. Look at all that that yummy texture.


Thank you Ms. B for gracing my photography studio with your beautiful self and for letting loose and having fun during our time together.  I hope you and the boyfriend enjoy your beautiful boudoir album for years to come! xoxo
