Boudoir is an intimate style of photography focusing on the sensual beauty of the female form. This is so much more than a photoshoot. Boudoir photography is an empowering, confidence building experience. It's an expression of freedom and self-love. Boudoir provides you a comfortable yet exciting space to feel like a goddess and celebrate your sensuality.
My goal as your photographer, is to create an experience that will leave you feeling amazing, and photographs to reinforce it.
We get it, you're nervous! The biggest concern most women have is that they won't look good in their photos. It's normal to be nervous about being photographed, especially for boudoir... it can feel vulnerable, and even intimidating. EVERYONE gets nervous, and most women have a 'thing' about their body. Every woman deserves to feel beautiful. And all women, of all shapes, sizes, colors, backgrounds, tastes, and identities are welcome.
You can plan to bring your own wardrobe to the shoot. 3-4 looks will do. We even have some wardrobe options just in case. We have props and accessories to compliment your outfits too. Once you've booked your session, we’ll send you a detailed prep guide so you know exactly how to prepare.
You really have to experience a boudoir photoshoot to believe us when we say it is the most fun, exciting, emboldening experience ever.
Until then, here’s how the process works:
You’ll schedule your beauty portraits with us after we connect for a free consultation. Once you have your date, you can start by picking out your boudoir outfits, two to three looks. We’ll send you a prep guide that details every little thing to consider as you prep for the big day! You’ll sign your online booking contract, and soon enough, you’ll be in the studio!
You'll have hair and makeup done so you’ll feel like a supermodel. You’ll get to sit back, get pampered, and be treated to a glass of bubbles. Then, you’ll have your photoshoot with Shelly, who will guide you through the whole thing, and make sure you’re comfortable, and having fun in the process.
Soon enough you’ll be back at our studio to view your photos at your private viewing session so you can discover the goddess that you really are! You'll order only the images and products you love to commemorate the experience. We offer the highest quality prints, albums, and canvases to showcase your images.
"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful
than the belief that she is beautiful."
- Sophia Loren
I've loved photography since I took my first photography class in high school. I reignited my love of photography with a trip to Yosemite in 2013. What first began as a hobby has grown and evolved through the years and become my passion. 'Boudoir by Shelly' was born out of that passion and the desire to inspire women to own their beauty. Feeling sexy and confident is empowering. Every woman deserves to feel beautiful. Own your beauty and let Boudoir by Shelly help you express it in a confidence boosting boudoir photography experience.
I personally think it's super annoying when companies constantly send promotional emails... that's not me! Join the Boudoir by Shelly email list for OCCASIONAL emails with boudoir photography promotions, package specials, and photoshoot giveaways.
