HELLO GORGEOUS!


It's time to rediscover your beauty with a boudoir session!

A boudoir is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning “to be sulky”. Boudoir photography is the capturing of beautiful and intimate images of women in a similar “boudoir” ambiance. Ladies book a boudoir session because they feel the need to rediscover their beauty and sensuality and feel better about themselves. Brides book a boudoir as a sexy wedding gift. It also makes a unique and often unexpected anniversary, birthday, or Holiday gift to your significant other.

The Studio

WELCOME TO OUR PLACE

After owning a commercial location for a few years, I decided to arrange a special place in my home for my sessions and my clients love it!  Unlike traditional portraiture, boudoir is intimate and it looks better when it's photographed in a real bedroom.  When I had the commercial space, I was lacking the beautiful natural light I have now and the cozy and contemporary look I like in my photos.  I have two completely different boudoir suites for you to choose from and plenty of other locations that will definitely add variety to your session. The outdoor vintage tub and the "shabby chic room" is a favorite one among brides and ladies who prefer a soft romantic style in their photos. The "Glam Suite" is a favorite one with the gals who love drama and glamour. Choose your favorite suite or get photographed in both!

MYA

OWNER + YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi! My name is Mya and I’m the owner and boudoir photographer at Sexy Beautiful Me (TM).  I’ve been a photographer since 2006 and a boudoir photographer since 2011. I learned about the genre while preparing my class schedule for a photographer’s conference. The boudoir photographers, who later because my mentors, talked about how it felt helping everyday women rediscover their beauty and fall in love with themselves all over again. I decided right there that I wanted to make a difference in other women’s lives too through my photography and pursued my formal education in the subject.

Many ladies book a boudoir session because they want a sexy and unique gift for their partners. However, a boudoir session is a pampering and empowering experience for them as well. When you come in to the studio for your session, I will coach you through your photo shoot experience down to your fingertips. When you leave my studio, I want you to feel gorgeous and confident!

BRANDI

HAIR + MAKEUP ARTIST

Brandi is the lady behind our client’s pampering makeover. When you book an appointment, you will have the option of adding professional hair styling and makeup application to your session. If you do, Brandi will come into the studio and take care of you before your session, making sure your hair and makeup is camera ready and perfect for your shoot.

Hair and makeup for studio photography is different from every day makeup and it requires a specific set of skills. Brandi has years of experience styling clients for photography, beauty queens, and television work. She is an expert in bringing out the real, beautiful, YOU.

What I love the most about Brandi is not only her flawless work, but her big smile, beautiful personality, and willingness to make every single one of my clients happy with her makeover. I’m sure you’ll love her!

HECTOR

CO-OWNER + PRODUCTION MANAGER

Hector is my husband. Without his help and encouragement I would’ve never gotten into boudoir photography. He is also a photographer and the person who makes all my crazy ideas come true. Every time I want to create a set, paint, or anything I can come up with, he is the one who makes it happen.  In fact, every time I say to him that I have a crazy idea, he always responds, “Surprise me!” .

Hector works mostly “behind the scenes”.  Before my client comes in, he makes sure all the shooting areas are clean and ready for them.  He also runs the business side of Sexy Beautiful Me, post-production, and appointment scheduling.  Think of him as “Charlie” from Charlie’s Angels. You know he is part of the company, but most clients never get to see him or meet him in person.

“Mi casa es su casa” and I can’t wait to meet you!

Life always begins with one step outside of your comfort zone.

FAQ's


FAQ's


Where in Central Florida are you located?
My studio is located at my home in Groveland, Florida. Groveland is an Orlando suburb, located next to Clermont, about 45 minutes from most of Orlando Metro areas and a little over an hour from Tampa. All the photos you see in my portfolio were taken at my place. Click here to view photos of the areas were your session will take place! (Note: Do NOT show up at my place without an appointment please!)

How much is a session?
Your investment is divided into two parts: 1) Session fee and 2) Photos purchase.  The session fee is $275 and it includes all the FUN during a fully-guided one-hour session with me. You’ll be guided from head to toes on how to look, move, pose, and everything you need to do for beautiful sexy photos. Bring up to three (3) outfits to wear and pose with. Photos are available for sale after your session. Digital bundles start at $250 and Little Black Books and Albums start at $400. I do interest-free payment plans. Please contact me via text for a full pricing list.

BEFORE + AFTER -  Hair and makeup was done by our stylist. We highly recommend this service.

BEFORE + AFTER -  Hair and makeup was done by our stylist. We highly recommend this service.

Are hair and makeup included?
No, they are not. You must arrive with your hair and makeup camera ready or you may book the services of our stylist, Brandi, to style you here at the studio before your session.

When do I see my photos?
You will see all your photos the same day! After your session is over, you will have the chance to go out and grab some lunch while I download your photos and get them ready for your selection.

How many proofs will I have to choose from?
On average, most clients will have approximately 50-75 proofs to choose from.

If I want to purchase additional products, when would I need to place my order by?
All orders must be placed the day of your session. Photos that are not purchased are automatically purged the same day.

I want my photos ready for a specific date. How far out should I book my session?
Please come in a few weeks prior any deadlines, preferable four to eight weeks prior. Depending on my workload, it may take me anywhere between four to eight weeks to make it to the top of my queue editing list! The only way you may have photos delivered the next day is if you purchase the entire unedited proof gallery.

Can I bring or have another person with me?
No, sorry. It is my experience that clients have a little difficulty connecting with me, take longer to relax, and have difficulty during the posing and coaching session when they are paying attention to another person instead of me. Please do not bring companions with you.  They are not allowed to join later either.  The entire process from start to finish is done with the client only.

Is there an age minimum for a session?
Yes. Boudoir clients must at least 21 years old.

Do you photograph nudes?
Yes, I do photograph artistic nudes for ladies only.

Do you photograph bachelorette parties or groups?
No, I don’t. I’d much rather take my time with one client at a time.

Would you travel to my location or a local hotel for my shoot?
No, I don’t. I only hold sessions at my place.

Do you photograph plus size women?
Yes, I do! In fact, most of my clients are full figure. Unfortunately for me, I can’t show most of my work on my website’s portfolio.  However, you many ladies will let me share sneaks from their sessions on my private ladies-only Facebook group.  Please join my group to stay up-to-date on last-minute availability, chat with previous costumers, and see more of my work!

Do you photograph men?
No, I don’t photograph men. Women 21 years old and over only.

Do you photograph pregnant women?
Yes, however, keep in mind I do NOT shoot traditional maternity photos. Only boudoir. Therefore, you will be photographed in lingerie just like my regular boudoir sessions. Also, for your safety, I do not photograph pregnant women with a due date four weeks or less away.

I want to keep my photos private. Is this possible?
Absolutely! Your privacy is very important to me.  All the ladies you see on my website gave me permission to share their photos. Unless you give me permission, we will NOT share your photos!

What happens the day of the session?
The day of the session you will come in, offered a beverage, and we will go over your outfits and everything you brought.  We will talk for a few minutes about your session, your preferences, and go over any questions or concerns you may have before your session. I want you to feel comfortable and ready for this awesome experience before you start. Once you are ready, your guided session will begin. You will be coached through EVERYTHING – posing, expressions, even how to move your hands and feet! It’s my job to make you look fabulous and your job to relax, go with the flow and have FUN.

After your session, you will relax in the beauty room for about 30-45 minutes, catch up with your calls or emails, watch TV, and grab a snack and/or drink from the snack bar while I download your photos and get them ready for your reveal.  You are also welcome to go to a nearby fast-food restaurant, grab something to eat and come back for your reveal. As soon as I get your photos ready, you will sit down with me and choose your photos. After you make your selections, your photos will go into production.

Do you provide wardrobe?
No, I don’t.  You must bring your own wardrobe. However, I do have small selection of sexy heels sizes 7-11 for the gals who normally don’t wear heels and prefer not to make the investment.

WARDROBE IDEAS FOR BOUDOIR:

It’s not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood.
— Dita Von Teese
  • A bra/panty set
  • A bralette/panty set (These are very popular now!)
  • Teddy
  • Bodysuit (my favorite and flattering for all bodies!)
  • Corset/Garter/Stockings
  • Tank top and undies (perfect for casual gals)
  • Sweater/tube socks (perfect for casual gals)
  • Your guy’s work shirt and tie
  • Favorite team’s jersey and matching undies (preferable a female size jersey that is fitted)
  • You may opt for a nude session. You can cover up with sheets or pose inside our outdoor vintage tub.

I don’t like my stomach. What should I wear?
If you don’t want your stomach shown on your photos, wear a teddy, high waist panty, a body-suit, or anything that covers it up.  Skip the bra/panty look and do not wear a bikini or thong (even if it comes with your teddy).  Also, avoid corsets. They tend to ride up and expose your stomach. There are plenty of choices that will NOT show your stomach. Please, do not expect me to pose you hiding your stomach all the time or “fix” anything you don’t like in post-processing.  When you pose with wardrobe you don’t feel comfortable with, it affects the outcome of your photos. In addition, being worried about how you look while I’m trying to pose you takes away the joy from the experience. You can find sexy and affordable teddies and bodysuits that are flattering for most body shapes at many department and clothing stores.

I don’t like the cellulite in my thighs/legs. What should I do?
Purchase these right now (they take a few weeks to arrive) or these if you are plus size and wear them under your wardrobe. Trust me; they make miracles hiding cellulite!

Do you provide props?
With the exception of “bedroom props” (think 50 shades of grey), I am not a fan of props for boudoir as they tend to give your photos an outdated kitschy look.   I do have a few masks and other sexy accessories you can use during your session.

I have no idea how to pose for the camera; can you help?
Absolutely! Don’t worry about posing. That’s my job! From facial expressions to body posture, you will be guided down to your fingertips to look your best regardless of your body type. I wont ask you to “look” at me sexy. Instead, I will show you exactly how to accomplish that!

I don’t think I’m sexy or beautiful. How can you make me look or look beautiful and sexy?
It is normal to feel that way some insecurities about posing in lingerie. I’ve learned from leaders in the industry how to pose and photograph women to look their best.  In addition, you’ll be coached from your head down to your toes, including facial expressions, throughout your session. That being said, the final result it’s up to YOU.  No amount of coaching will work on a woman with extreme confidence issues and who constantly looks for the things they don’t like in their pictures.  When you coming for your session, leave your inhibitions at the door, come in the right frame of mind, and get ready to have FUN and embrace your beautiful body just the way it is!

How do you edit the photos I purchase?
When you purchase digital images, they are edited for color, contrast, composition, I remove small temporary blemishes  like bruises and pimples, I slightly contour some areas when needed, and apply a skin softening filter to give them that finished magazine look. I will NOT change your size or change your natural body shape. Additional editing beyond what’s included, including tattoo removal, skin discoloration, etc. may be possible for an additional $100 per hour creative fee.

Should I tan before my session?
NO, PLEASE DON'T! Tanning tends to look orange and red in photos. Natural skin tones photograph best no matter who pale the skin is. Even out skin tones is NOT included with our standard editing.

Can you photoshop the areas in my body I’d like to change?
No. My philosophy is that every woman is beautiful. I will pose you in the most flattering way possible and slightly enhance your purchased photos as explain above but I will NOT change your body.

Can I bring you a list of poses I want to do during my shoot?
I’d rather you don’t.  To replicate a photo is time consuming. There are many factors that come together to make a photo the way it looks: location, lighting conditions, camera settings, equipment used, the subject’s body, etc.  I already have my own creative flow that will result in beautiful classy images as seen throughout my website.

 

There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty

Miss V

I had my first visit with Mya just last week! I wanted to get my fiancé something special and creative for his wedding gift, and I know he will absolutely LOVE this! The morning of my shoot, I woke up feeling so nervous-doing something like this, or even showing my body off is completely out of my comfort zone! The MOMENT I met Mya, her sweet/fun personality completely eased me. She is very easy to talk too, and makes you feel very welcome! She did such a beautiful job on my hair and makeup. I loved the whole process! During the shoot, she helps with posing, facial expressions, ect. Not once did I feel uncomfortable! My pictures are so beautiful, I look at them often in disbelief that it is actually me! I can not wait for my future husband to get his album! Thank you Mya! I will definitely be back.


Miss K

Can I just tell you how easy Mya is to work with first of all!!! I felt like I had no idea what I was doing at the very beginning but she made me feel such at ease and gave the best instructions! I have looked every where for something even close to quality to her photos and nothing comes close! She is one of a kind! I traveled to Orlando from St. PETERSBURG to take advantage of all of her at home studios and they were awesome. She is amazing at what she does, I'll just leave it at that! ♡


Miss S

I booked this service for a gift for my fiance and although I have never been professionally photographed before, Mya made me feel like a model! I was treated to awesome hair and make up, wonderful conversation throughout her expert administration of the beautification and coaching on ways to look at the camera...I could go on and on about skills she taught me... Bottom line, I am a plus sized lady, who never has time for herself and never thought that she would ever look at herself in professional, unedited photos and say, Wow...that's me. That is who I really am, and best of all, right then, you get to see yourself as your partner sees you. Mya has sales all the time and offers amazing deals on this one of a kind experience. You owe it to yourself to do this, especially if you are a bride, but really, if you are anyone!

VIP LOUNGE


Get to know your photographer and join our group!

Booking a session is a nerve-wracking decision. Also, many ladies like to take their time and become familiar with the process before they decide to book a session.  As a photographer, I find it better when my client already knows me well before they come in for their session. If you are considering a session with me, I'd like to know you better. That's why I created a private VIP Lounge. MY VIP lounge, it's a ladies only private Facebook group.

In this group, you can chat with me and other gals as often as you want, ask questions about what to expect, hair, makeup, wardrobe, or any other unrelated subject because the ladies in this group are more than clients; they are my friends!  Because it's a private group, none of your Facebook friends will find out what you read or write in this group. Only members can do that.
