Boudoir photography is, above all, celebrating female body, embracing who you are, empowering your feminine beauty and, essentially, making you feel awesome about who you are. In fact boudoir photography answers any woman’s wish to appear sexy, desired and, more importantly, confident about herself.
Our goal is to make you beautiful, sexy, daring, amazingly attractive and then photograph you to preserve that image for you to enjoy or make it a gift, and investment, to your or your significant other.
First of all – we will never pressure you into doing anything you are uncomfortable doing. We are super professional, respectful, and we know how to make all different body types look great as we have done this hundred times before.
As for your session – here's how it works. We'll meet with you to discuss your ideas for the session, because this is about YOU. Then we suggest a few things we think you might want to bring or, possibly, buy. We also have a few items in our closed for you to use. The next step is to agree on time and place and actually do the shoot. We will bring our equipment to whatever place we agree on and you will bring your gorgeous self. Once the session is complete we will take some time to review and edit the best of the best images for you. Finally we'll show you the edited images and let you pick those you’d like to keep. This would also be a good time to decide if you want them printed.
Trust us, we know exactly how you feel and we will help guide you through the whole session as it happens. The awkwardness wears off quickly and soon you are having a blast. It's an unforgetable experience & fun… Really!
We can provide professional makeup services as well as basic hair styling, based on the package you chose. We strongly believe in pushing limits and ultimately letting you be whoever you want to be. Some of our clients want to be themselves – and we’re totally okay with that. Other clients want to try a new persona, explore their alter ego or simply do something crazy and out of this world. We can do all that and then some!
Most of all – this session is about you, your desires and your vision.
We do not supplyclothing as yet. However, we can put you in contact with suppliers that will be able to supply you with everything your heart desire at an affordable price.
We suggest you bring some items you want to use (be it your favorite plush toy or leather boots) and some accessories. When discussing your ideas for your boudoir session we will list out things we have so you can pick and choose and will advise you on the best way to go about getting them.
We are great with shooting artistic and implied nudes as well as other sensual and suave type of images or concepts. We provide a really safe and comfortable environment for you to prepare, change, catch a breath and then do it all over again. With female nusidty we always ensure that we are accompanied with another female photographer to make you feel more comfortable as our promary photographer is male, yet highly professional.
By law we maintain copyright to all our images and derivative works. Nevertheless, we will not use any image without your WRITTEN consent and we won't post anything anywhere without your written permission. These photos are yours to keep and we want you to have full control over them.

Yes, you absolutely can and we’re totally cool with that if it makes you more comfortable. We are nice to everybody and their friends. In fact, we may even encourage it – if she can help you with dressing and undressing, share the experience and even get you that latte you’ve been craving since morning.
Bringing your friend may also bring another useful benefit for you and her. If she is amazed by your awesome boudoir photography session and as a result books her own session on the spot then we’ll give you additional 15% discount.
Yes and No. It depends on WHAT you want as well as HOW you want it. In fact – we pride ourselves on meeting client's needs and delivering fantastic results so this is one of main things that are discussed before your session.
Some clients don't like "too much photoshop", however, they don't always realize what the "photoshop" really means. Sometimes people go as far as calling it "plastic skin", and yet they would gawk in awe of magazine models' perfect skin and shape. We can leave your wrinkles in as they were, keep your stretch marks on as well as preserve all your imperfections. However, we want to encourage you to make that extra leap and make it a picture from magazine, a movie shot or something completely ethereal.
All your retouched (edited) images will be presented to you at the viewing session (follow up appointment) so you will be able to place orders for prints/digital files/mouse pads/mugs and anything else you want. Digital files are ready immediately after the viewing session therefore can be ordered and delivered almost instantly. Prints are made to order and are usually ready within 4 to 6 weeks, depending on how busy our printer company is.
Additionally you can request to view all images from your session so that you can ask us to edit additional images. While we are not sharing originals, we'll be happy to let you browse them during viewing session and request additional images to be retouched.
You are COMPLETELY normal! In fact we hear all of our clients say that. Remember that one of our wonderful female photographers will coach you through the entire photo shoot, telling you exactly what to do, how to pose, and what expression to give. The most apparent and repeated comment in our testimonials section is about how comfortable and relaxed we make our client’s feel; so you are in good hands. As bad as you think you may be at taking a photo, don't you worry, you are will be guided by the most experienced boudoir and portraiture coaches.
Of course! We photograph women of ALL shapes and sizes, of all ages, and from all walks of life! One thing we hear very often is: "I feel like I need to lose a few pounds before doing this shoot"...and to that we say, NO WAY! Don't wait to lose a few extra pounds. This isn't about looking thinner, this is about looking beautiful! And we promise you you absolutely will. No matter what your body type, we want to help capture YOUR unique beauty.
We have an amazing small staff of male & female boudoir photographers. And while your primary photographer is male, we promise you will be in excellent hands and most of our boudoir phtography sessions are accompanied with a female photographer. Our photographer is very knowledgeable with hundreds of shoots under his belt. Our staff is kind, hard working, and all of us believe every woman is uniquely beautiful.
First we think we have the best experience, and that is crucial to understand how to flatter any figure.
Next, we really, really care. When we meet you will be treated like a friend, and I assure you you will feel totally comfortable. We have heard so many stories out there about the sketchy or uncomfortable experiences our clients have had at other locations, not only does that sadden us, but it pushes us to be the best we possibly can.
Next, if you are unhappy with your images, we will do a re-shoot for you. It hasn't happened, but we are sure that's a comfort when you are investing in us.
The team is a husband and wife team and are the best of the best. And their experience in this industry warrants a professional's pay.
A photo shoot like this isn't something you will probably treat yourself too often in your life, and sure you could grab a cheaper photographer, but we truly believe that if you are investing you should spend a little more and get an experience to last a lifetime.
No problem! So many of our clients come in with cute outfits, dresses, jean shorts, rompers, jeans n tanks and the list goes on! Click through our boudoir and protraiture pages and you will see what we mean.
Good for you!!! In fact I would say about half our clients say that they are just doing this for themselves. Everyone has a different story for why they come in, and we are honored to play a part in it.
"Love yourself completely & show your beauty..."
No problem! We have tons of different product options and we can help you make the decision to swap out your book for something else at your viewing session.
We ask that you do, two reasons really. One we like to be prepared for you and two we get so busy that we cannot promise to be available.
As with most luxury designer boutiques we charge a small consultation fee of R100. This is only for Saturday and late night appointments and is fully refunded against your photography session. Weekday appointments are not chargeable.
