Let us transform you into a thing of pure beauty!

You are completely & totally sexy! Yes, you. Don’t believe us? We’ll show you. We promise!

Sexy is an attitude. It’s an angle – a part of who you are. Your job is to be yourself. Our job is to bring out the best in you. With professional styling, the right lighting, and a few hours just the two of us together, we will transform you into a thing of pure beauty.

Yvonne has been taking boudoir portraits since 2008.  It’s one of our favorite forms of  photography – producing provocative, evocative imagery of beautiful women just like you! Yes, you. Don’t believe us? We’ll show you. We promise!

Sexy is an attitude. It’s an angle – a part of who you are. Your job is to be yourself. Our job is to bring out the best in you. With professional styling, the right lighting, and a few hours just the two of us together, we will transform you into a thing of pure beauty.

Hey Girl, let’s get this thing started! Here’s how it works:

What makes Boudior Photos by Yvonne  a unique experience begins far before we snap the shutter for the first time. The best boudoir images come from an experienced photographer working with a happy, comfortable model – a combination that can take time to develop!

First meeting: Every session begins with an initial in-person consultation so we can get to know one another. Your place, ours, or somewhere in-between – we love to meet over a cup of tea and talk about who you are and who you’d love to become during our session. We also encourage clients to use this time for questions and ideas; and we love to show you our beautiful print products in-person to give you a feel for the final outcome of your session.

book it!: After the initial meeting, we’ll work together to book your session date. We have some wonderful ideas for props and outfits which we love to share with our clients!

The affair: On the day of your session, we’ll sit and chat for a while – sip a glass of wine or juice – listen to your favorite music. Whatever makes you comfortable! One of our expert professional stylists will be with us on-location to transform you into a supermodel and provide touch-ups throughout the session. After hair, makeup, and a few sips of your favorite drink – we’ll get right down to it. Just you, me, and the camera. It’ll be awesome!

End results: After your photo shoot, you’ll have your own private viewing session of about 100 of the best images to view, enjoy, and choose the photos for your little black book. Each image is lovingly hand-retouched to accent your best features while masking the rest! From this session you will be able to order prints, jewelry, cuff links, and a variety of beautifully crafted photo products delivered to your door.

The Art of Gorgeous: A closer look at our post production process

Beauty is an ART: It may be cliche, but it’s true. No woman is perfect. Even the most genetically gifted celebrity supermodels have something they wish they could change or hide about their bodies. The idea behind hiring a professional artist to create your boudoir images is to mask the characteristics you’d rather not share with the world (or those closest to you!) while showing off your very best features. That is our art, and what we strive for in every single photograph we take. With years of experience in posing, angles, lenses, and lighting, we’ve found what works for others – and for you, too. You are a beautiful woman, and we’re going to prove it to you!!!

what is post production? : “Post-production” is an artistic processing of the photographs after your photo shoot. We are able to remove blemishes, smooth skin, hide wrinkles, add toning and glow, and enhance your natural features. Each image delivered to you will
include this retouching process. Any prints and larger print products you may order will, if necessary, include a second round of retouching to make your images look absolutely incredible!

dress for success: Although we love to make you look your absolute best, we are unable to accommodate requests for reducing waist sizes or adding/removing major features. We encourage our clients to wear outfits that flatter your best parts and hide those you may not love so much – and are happy to provide our advice and experience on what to wear before your boudoir session!

Getting into your comfort zone: tell us how to please you! More than a perfect hairdo, brilliant makeup, or a well-fitting bra, the best way to guarantee a fantastic photographic outcome is for you to be completely and totally comfortable in front of the camera. Well, maybe not completely – a little edge can add wonders – but comfortable enough to show us what makes you especially sexy. Have fun filling out this little worksheet – and tell us what puts you in your element!

Oh, what should I wear? What to weardepends entirely on you! Ah, what to wear!  One of our most frequently asked questions, and our favorite to answer! What to wear depends entirely on you – what kind of look you envision for yourself, what genre or era you’re trying to evoke, and most importantly, what makes you feel most comfortable!

Some clients prefer to bare it all – while others like to remain more conservatively covered. Any way you like it, we’ll work with you to create the photographs of your dreams. Here are a few pointers we’ve gathered from our years of experience:l for the final outcome of your session.

Accessorize! Whether it’s your engagement ring, a vintage parasol, a sparkly necklace, your favorite sunglasses, or a brightly colored scarf, accessories can add personality and interest to your photos.

shoes, shoes, shoes! Oh, and did we say more SHOES?! Shoes are truly an integral part of your images – they set a mood, express your personality, and can add touches of sexy, classy, or cute! Boots, flats, heels, stilettos – we love them all. We recommend bringing multiple pairs of shoes (heels and stilettos are always a favorite) to experiment with what works best with your outfit!

outfit options: Bringing multiple outfits is always a great idea. You may not feel as comfortable in some than others, and you’ll never know what looks absolutely fabulous until you’re wearing it in front of the camera! You never know – even an old shirt or two from the hubby’s closet can look amazing. We can also help you pick and choose the most flattering items from your collection, so bring it on!

color, pattern & texture: Colorful accessories, shoes, jewelry, and lingerie can really make your photos shine. Even a small touch of color, such as a scarf or anklet, among an otherwise muted pallete can add a lot of excitement and interest to the composition. If you’re not sure what colors, patterns, and textures would go best with your hair and skin tones, just ask! We love making recommendations and talking about style.

Lingerie with interest: Fishnet stockings, extra-lacey negligees, colorful corsets, ruffles, and patterned fabrics look amazing on camera. We love photographing you in anything – but unique, interesting lingerie pieces are a great way to make your photos really incredible. Ruffles, toule, and lace catch light beautifully!

The Investment: You don’t need a special occasion to book a boudoir session; it’s a special occasion in itself.  Whether you’re single, married, beginning a new chapter, ending an old one – the images we create together will boost your confidence and improve your self-image. If you’re booking to give images as a gift, remember that this is just as much a gift to yourself, and that is priceless! All prints and photo products are professional grade and made to last a lifetime. Crafted by artisans from archival quality materials, we offer nothing but the very best in color
reproduction and craftsmanship.
