The Atlantic Boudoir Experience
Yeah, you're going to get gorgeous portraits of yourself, but it's really SO much more.
My goal is to have you leave my studio walking like Beyoncé.
How does it work?
The Atlantic Boudoir Experience includes an in-person pre-session consultation at the studio to go over your vision for your session, try on pieces from my client wardrobe, and see sample products. The day of your session, it includes professional hair and makeup application and ~90 minutes of shooting with 3 outfit changes + the sheets set. Finally, we end with a private image reveal and ordering session!
Studio, pool, outdoor vintage tub or beach - you choose!
Most of our sessions are done in our beautiful studio located near downtown Wilmington, NC. Picture yourself outdoors? We can shoot ocean side or do a milk bath shoot in the outdoor vintage tub set. I also offer add-on sets in our gorgeous in-ground pool. There's nothing sexier than some outdoor boudoir! (But let's pencil those in for spring/summer/autumn, k?)
After your session, you take a break for lunch (or opt to add on an in-house massage and lunch called in to you!) and then return to review your best images together and choose the ones that you want preserved forever in gorgeous heirloom products. My clients typically spend between $899 - $4,000 on their images. I also offer interest-free payment plans.
Capture your confidence in physical form...forever.
NOW OFFERING...LEGACY FILMS.
Add on an intimate, personalized 2-minute film to accompany your portrait experience and album or prints. It's a stunning way to capture your most radiant and confident self in moving picture that you can treasure forever.

Digital files are included in certain collections or offered a la carte, but believe me - you're not going to want these images to sit on a USB in a drawer.
Collections and "build your own collection" options available.
Frequently Asked Questions
What IS a boudoir photo shoot?
I like to think of boudoir as Victoria's Secret-style portraits for every woman. It's the chance to be vulnerable and express a side of yourself that you may have lost touch with, or one that you love to bring out every once in a while! My 100% female team will make you feel empowered, comfortable and at ease.
What if I don't want anyone else to see my images?
That is 100% your choice! The only reason that I have client images on my website, social feeds, and marketing materials is because those women gave me explicit permission to do so via their "Model Release Form." Everyone is required to sign one of these forms at the end of your session, but there are four different levels of release you can grant. You can read more about these in this blog post.
But I'm sooo nervous - I've never done anything like this before!
Girl, almost everyone is nervous to do something like this - that's what makes it so fun! Use this opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and feel an intense rush of pride and happiness that you did something for yourself. Plus, we have a lot of fun and you won't be nervous once we start shooting!
Where is the studio located?
Our studio is located on South 17th St. in beautiful Wilmington, NC.
When will I get to see my photos?
The same day as your session! You take a lunch break and then come back to see them in about an hour and a half.
Will you retouch my acne/wrinkles/cellulite/bruises?
Yes - I professionally retouch all of your purchased images. I do not change body shapes, but I do smooth skin and remove blemishes, etc.
I'm a curvy/"older" woman - can you still make me look good?
Um...yes! I photograph women of all ages, sizes, and shapes. We are all unique and boudoir is for everyone!
How far in advance should I schedule my shoot?
Because I specialize in boudoir, my calendar fills up quickly. I recommend coming in for your shoot 4-6 weeks before you need your album. No matter what your timeline is, give me a call - we can sometimes accommodate last minute requests.
What do I need to bring to my shoot? What about waxing, tanning, nails? Can I bring my boyfriend’s football jersey?
Plan to bring your own wardrobe to your shoot - however, I do offer a Client Wardrobe with pieces in sizes XS - 5X for my clients to borrow if they wish! You can try on pieces at the pre-session consult. We also have accessories and jewelry at the studio for you to use. I will send you a detailed wardrobe guide, session guide, and multiple emails before your shoot with everything else you’ll need to know about getting ready.
How can I get this process started??
