First - I use the term “plus-size boudoir” for one simple reason: it is one of the most popular things women search for when it comes to boudoir photography, and I want to work with All people and All bodies. When you work with me, I bring out your inner goddess and shine a light on everything that makes you unique and gorgeous.
-Planning and prep before the session
-Conversation to make sure the session meets your vision and style
-Professional hair and makeup
-Coaching on how to pose
-Delicate editing and retouching of your images
-Same-day ordering appointments
Like my other boudoir sessions, the plus-size boudoir experience includes:
The short (and truthful) answer is no. Boudoir is the same for all body types because it is meant for all body types. But we do discuss what you would like to accomplish from your session. Your favorite features to bring out and more.
The curvy boudoir experience is built on comfort and trust in a judgment-free zone. My studio is a safe place where bold women come to splurge on themselves and indulge in some well-deserved self-love. Kick your anxiety out the door and allow yourself this expression of self-love - because you deserve it!
While it’s totally normal to be a bit anxious about posing in lingerie or revealing clothing, rest assured that I’ve worked with hundreds of women just like you, and they all fall in love with the experience.
I’ll help you feel at ease and show off your sexy because size does not define beauty.
When you work with a highly experienced boudoir photographer, you’ll be amazed at how natural it felt and how great your photos look.
Posing will be taken care of for you - that’s a lot of why I’m here! Part of my skill lies in how to make small changes - an arching of the back, adjustment of the light, a slight parting of the lips - to showcase the beauty and sensuality that’s been dying to come out. All you have to do is show up and give yourself permission to enjoy the experience.
One of the things I love most about my curvy boudoir clients is seeing how liberated and confident they feel only minutes into the session. My clients say that it’s a transformational experience where they get to show off their bodies in a way they’ve always wanted to.
When you work with me for a boudoir session, you’ll fall deeper in love with your partner and gain a shared self-confidence. I'll help you feel relaxed from the moment you step into the studio so you can have a fun and sexy experience. We’ll start with makeup and hairstyling to bring out your best features.
Once you’re ready, we’ll move over to the custom set and I’ll pose you for your first shot. I’ll throw on some music, and in a few minutes, you’ll be having a great time laughing and enjoying yourselves - which is, of course, the whole point! Your boudoir portraits will highlight your intimacy and passion for each other by creating portraits that you’ll love and your friends will want their own session.
During the complimentary phone call, we’ll go over your ideas for the session and any concerns you may have.
-Ideas or inspirations you have for your session
-Any parts of your body you want to accentuate or shy away from
-Your personal style
-How you’d like to showcase your artwork
On the day of the shoot, my professional hair and makeup artist will give you a makeover as we chat about the first poses you’ll be doing. Then the magic begins! I’ll turn on some music, guide you through the first poses, and in no time you’ll be relaxed and having more fun than you imagined!
Northern Virginia's Top Boutique Boudoir Experience
As a woman in her 40's I have experienced it all with my body-confidence, shame, fear, weight gain, weight loss, giving life to children and all of the complications our bodies go through that and everything afterwards.
I understand your concerns, they have been mine too, but now I help all women work through it all and celebrate this moment, this stage of your life, just as you are.
Almost all my clients express having a sense of "I did it" after their sessions. A sense of I didn't know I could look like that! It is beautiful to watch clients transform obviously on the outside, but more so on the inside to give themselves the grace and appreciation they deserve.
