Why did you want to join us for a shoot?

“I just turned 50, and I haven’t felt sexy in a good three years. Menopause is the devil, and I’ve packed on about 15 lbs. I know you can help me rediscover my fierceness.”

The Truth is…

Many client’s call us wanting to do a session, but fear they are not in their 20’s anymore. But the truth is, most of our clients are middle-aged and we do have a lot of ladies that come celebrate their birthdays with us. They are pampered with hair and makeup and then the shoot. Getting to have a beautiful keepsake at the end of it all is just a perk!

Elizabeth’s Google Review

“I recently had a shoot with Roosh, and it was the most amazing experience. First, her studio and dressing area are beautiful. You feel kind of fancy sitting there in the makeup chair. Her hair and makeup artist made me soooo beautiful! I don’t wear a full face very often, so that was a real treat. And then there’s Roosh herself. Oh my goodness, I love this woman. I met her through a mutual friend some years back, and kept up with her on social media ever since, knowing that I’d love to do a shoot with her. She makes you feel so comfortable from the minute you walk in. She also provides great wardrobe advice, and has some pieces and accessories that you can use for your shoot.”

“During the shoot, she makes you feel so beautiful and supported. You don’t even care that you’re in your underwear – or less! The shoot itself was really fun. Then you get to the end, and she shows you the photos, and it’s like whoa, who is that? Is that ME? I actually gasped when going through them for the first time. Her finished products are very high-quality. My finished photos are absolutely stunning! The album cover is so beautiful, and if you purchase digitals, you’ll get a gorgeous USB drive with all of your pictures. She also uses very nice packaging. Before the shoot, I was a little nervous of how this was all going to go because I’m 50 years old, and a little more fluffy than I’d prefer. But none of that mattered, because Roosh made me look like I was in the damn VS catalog! I could still totally see myself in every picture, though. Seriously ladies, if you are interested in boudoir photography (and you absolutely should be interested), then go see Roosh. She will make you look and feel like an absolute goddess. I promise you’ll look at your finished photos and think, “Wow, that’s me!”

Sara’s Boudoir Session Experience with Roosh Boudoir Photography

Her Size Information

Why are we sharing this information with Sara’s permission is because many clients reach out to us saying they don’t look like the clients on our website. I convey that they are very much everyday women just like you and me, but sometimes not seeing and hearing from clients directly doesn’t share the personal experience quite as only they can.

What Sara Said

“I’m anywhere between a 14-18 depending on who makes it. When I was professionally measured for bras they said I was a 36GG but I wear a 42DDD from Lane Bryant.”

A Client’s Perspective About Boudoir

Before & Afters, Classic Boudoir, Plus Size Boudoir, Testimonials

Before & Afters

I’m not a huge fan of comfort zones. So, Let’s get past your comfort zone. Rest assured, I want to make sure you are comfortable when you arrive and I’m going to ease you into this process–but I never want you to walk away when it’s all said and done and say “I never let myself go. I played it safe, and I wish I’d really explored more of myself.”

You think you can’t do this because you are a mom who rocks the same tee for four days and lives on coffee, dry shampoo, and a prayer. You think you can’t do this because you aren’t in the same size jeans you wore in high school, or because you have some lumps/bumps. You think you can’t do this because you don’t feel worthy enough/beautiful enough/brave enough.

What would it look like for you if you could break up with all the lies swirling around in your brain that tell you that you can’t be MORE? What would you give to feel celebrated, comfortable in your skin, beautiful in spite of a few things you’d like to change?

Yes, I’m going to push your boundaries of comfort–because you are worth that to me, and because I know the potential that lives inside you.

If I told you that you would go through five minutes of sheer terror, but then gain a lifetime worth of things like: forgiving yourself, self compassion, understanding, self worth, healing, learning to shift your focus from fighting the past to building yourself up—-would it be worth it to you? So, Let’s get past your comfort zone.

And of course, you can keep your photos 100% private! Read more about keeping your photos private, here.

Is a boudoir experience right for you? You’ve probably been wondering, Oh, hey! I see you over there—sitting on the fence— trying to decide if a boudoir experience is right for you. While you are mulling it over, I want to drop a few truth bombs your way:

  1. Do it for you. Whether or not you have a significant other, a boudoir experience should be for you, first and foremost. This is a very special experience designed to celebrate the woman you are–your accomplishments, the spaces you need to heal, and a golden opportunity for you to reconnect with the side of you that you think you’ve lost.

2. You do not need to change. You are ready for this experience just as you are. You don’t need to lose weight, get Botox, or get surgery first. You are beautiful NOW, you are worthy now, and you are deserving of this now.

3. You won’t be the one. So often, potential clients make the comment that they will be the one person I can’t “make” beautiful. Here’s the thing babe: I don’t MAKE anyone beautiful. My general rule is that I don’t Photoshop anything permanent on your body. Photoshop does WAY more harm than good. I don’t want you to see your final images and think “Oh I look beautiful because she photoshopped me.” I want you to see your images and see YOU. I have never photographed a professional model. All of the women you see on this page are REAL women–and they all had insecurities/fears just like you do. My expertise really shines in dynamite posing/lighting/coaching of expressions (this is why you can’t hire just ANYONE to shoot this).

Our amazing hair and makeup artist may be found at Evergreen Beauty.
