Q: WERE IS THE STUDIO AT?
A: Our sessions take place at the photographer’s home studio in Groveland, Florida. Groveland is in South Lake County next to Clermont. We are approximately 45 minutes from most Orlando areas, about 1 hour from most North Orlando (Seminole County), and about 1½ hours from Tampa.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS THE DAY OF MY SESSION?
A: When you come in for your session, you'll have a short consultation with Mya where we’ll she will go over your wardrobe, and talk about your session, expectations, and concerns. Then is time to sit down, relax and enjoy your pampering makeover. When your session begins, you have NOTHING to worry about! You'll be guided from your head down to your toes through the entire photoshoot. After the session is over, you will take a short 45-minute lunch break, then come back to view your photos and make your selections.
Q: DO PROVIDE WARDROBE?
A: No, we don’t. However, your session fee includes access to our sexy shoes and accessories collection.
Q: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY BOUDOIR SESSION?
A: Keep it simple! We suggest the following three looks:
a bra and panty set
and a “wild card”. The “wild card” could be a sheet session, the tub, or the shower set (photos below).
Q: I DON’T LIKE MY STOMACH. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
A: Choose wardrobe that covers it up like a teddy or a bodysuit (MY FAVORITE!). Skip the bra and panty look unless is a high-waist panty. If you purchase a teddy and it comes with a thong - throw it away! Get a pair of matching cheekys or a high-waist panty. Thongs are not flattering for any body type (my personal opinion), but especially if you are not comfortable with your middle session.
Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKES TO GET MY PHOTOS READY?
A: Depends on our queue list and the time of the year. It could take 6 to 8 weeks, so please come in early if you have a deadline.
Q: how are my photos be edited?
A: Standard editing includes color correction, contrast adjustment, and a basic skin airbrush, which will make skin imperfections including cellulite and stretch marks less noticeable. We also remove small temporary blemishes like bruises and pimples whenever possible. We will NOT change your body size or shape. A combination of flattering poses, lighting, and choosing the proper wardrobe will enhance your figure.
Standard editing does not include even out skin tones, redness, fix tan lines, removal of tattoos, removal of deep stretch marks and permanent scars or fixing permanent skin conditions (for example: eczema or hyper pigmentation on your elbows and knees). This type of enhanced editing may be available for an additional hourly fee.
Q: HOW DO I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
A: Digital images are sent electronically and Little Black Books are sent via Postal Mail.
Q: CAN I BRING A FRIENd or my significant other WITH ME?
A: No, sorry. Only the lady or couple getting photographed is allowed on premises during the entire experience including the ordering session.
Q: DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH COUPLES?
A: Only for ladies who already had a session with us.
Q: CAN MY FRIEND AND I BOOK A SESSION THE SAME DAY?
A: No, sorry. We only take care of ONE client per day.
Q: can i keep my photos private?
A: Absolutely! Your privacy is very important to us. All the ladies you see on our website gave us permission to share their photos. Unless you give us permission, we will NOT share your photos!
Q: I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO POSE. CAN YOU HELP ME?
A: Absolutely! Don’t worry about posing. That’s our job! From facial expressions to body posture, you will be guided down to your fingertips on how to look your best.
Q: DO YOU HAVE AN AGE REQUIREMENT?
A: Yes. All of our clients must be 21 and over.
Q: DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH PREGNANT WOMEN?
A: Yes, however, keep in mind we do not shoot traditional maternity photos with spouses and children. Your session will be pretty close to our regular boudoir session.
Q: SHOULD I TAN BEFORE MY SESSION?
A: NO, PLEASE DO NOT TAN! 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 and fixing tan lines is NOT included with our standard editing.
welcome to our place!
Our sessions are held in our home in Groveland, Florida. All the photos you see throughout our website were taken in our home. After leasing a commercial location for a few years, we find that our home gives our clients the intimacy, privacy, and coziness they seek for this unique experience. It also gives us the flexibility to create multiple shooting areas and take advantage of the beautiful natural light available throughout our place.
The origin of every excuse is the failure to do something
WHAT'S HOLDING YOU BACK?
You got this!
Most of our clients have similar concerns when considering a boudoir session:
#1: MY BODY IS NOT PERFECT
A: Nobody is perfect. Nobody. Even the women who you might think have the perfect body do not feel that way about themselves. Do you think that the women you see in magazines and television look that way in person? It’s a combination of wardrobe, lighting (this is true especially in movies), posing, and editing. These are the skills and knowledge we've acquired after years of experience photographing women. You ARE beautiful just the way you are and we are here to showcase your unique beauty!
#2: I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT
A: Are you active in the path of losing weight? If you are, congratulations! If you are not, do you want to postpone your happiness for a few extra pounds. That's not how life is supposed to be. We age, we gain weight, our beauty transforms with time and we need to embrace our changing beauty. If you wait until you are “ready”, you might end up waiting forever.
#3: I'M NOT A LINGERIE TYPE OF GAL
A: A lot of our clients are not crazy for lingerie! You don't need to pose in lingerie if is not your thing. There are many options for your looks. T-shirts and tank tops can be sexy too!
#4: I POSE TERRIBLE IN PHOTOS
A: You don't need to worry about that. That's our job. To coach you from your head down to toes. From facial expressions to what to do with your hands, we’ll have you look your best.
#5: I DON'T WANT MY PHOTOS OUT THERE
A: They won't be. The ladies you see on our website gave us written permission to use their photos. Most of our clients don't, and that's fine with us. Everything is handled with extreme care to protect your privacy as much as we can.
Hi gorgeous! We are Mya and Hector, husband and wife, owners of Sexy Beautiful Me LLC, professional photographers, and parents to four beautiful girls and two spoiled dogs. "The Wife" photographs female-only sessions and styles the clients. "The Husband" it's in charge of the pre and post production.
PHOTOGRAPHYER + MAKEUP ARTIST
I’ve been a boudoir photographer for over six years. I learned about boudoir photography while preparing my class schedule for a photographer’s conference. The boudoir photographers, who later became 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 do that too and so a wonderful adventure started!
PRODUCTION + BIZ MANAGER
I've been an avid supporter and cheerleader for Mya since we started boudoir photography in 2011. Most of the time I work behind the scenes. Before our client comes in, I make sure that the place is spotless and perfect for their session. I get all the equipment ready for her (cameras, lighting, etc.), do most of the post-production work, and every time she has an "idea" for a shoot or a set, I do my best to make it happen! :-)
