WHAT’S BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY?
A boudoir is a 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 in a similar “boudoir” ambiance. Clients book a boudoir session because they feel the need to rediscover their beauty and sensuality and feel better about themselves. Brides book a boudoir session as a sexy wedding gift. A little black book with boudoir photos of you is unique anniversary, birthday, or Holiday gift to your significant other.
DO IT FOR YOU
A boudoir session is more than a photoshoot. It’s an experience, which begins the moment that you decide to book your session. That moment when you finally decide to walk away from your comfort zone and do something for you. To embrace your unique beauty and sexiness. We are here to guide you through this empowering experience. A boudoir photoshoot is for every body. You don’t need to lose weight. You don’t need to change your appearance. This is about embracing your beauty.
WHAT THEY SAID
I got lucky the day I came across Mya while searching for a Boudoir photographer as a wedding gift for my husband. Right away knew she was the perfect photographer for me, I felt so comfortable just talking to her before my first session. Was I nervous absolutely, she helped ease my nerves and made me feel stunning. I had such great experience and my husband absolutely loved his wedding gift. I've had 6 sessions and plan on many more. She is amazing ladies, so what are you waiting for.
Mya is amazing from the moment you walk through the door you feel nothing but welcomed into her home. She makes you feel completely at ease and explains everything. The whole experience gave a new confidence and you find yourself laughing most of the day. My pictures I had to have them all. And just trust her on the body suit she knows what she's talking about. Go in with a open mind and just trust her you will not be disappointed!
I absolutely LOVE doing boudoir photo shoots. They're gorgeous. I have experience in doing this but none of my experiences have been like mine at Sexy Beautiful Me. The studio is absolutely stunning. Every room gorgeous and perfect for photos, especially the outside tub. Mya, the photographer, is the perfect coach so whether this is your first time or your tenth, with her expertise your photos will be beyond sexy and beautiful…

PHOTOGRAPHYER + MAKEUP ARTIST
It was 2010 when I found out what boudoir photography was. It wasn’t what these photographers did what caught my attention, but WHY they did it. As I read their story on how it felt to help everyday women feel beautiful and embrace their unique beauty, I remember telling my husband that I finally found my calling. That’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life! It’s been 8 years of the most rewarding career I’ve ever had.
PRODUCTION + BIZ MANAGER
My job is mostly behind the scenes, except for couples’ session, where I get to shoot with Mya. Before our client comes in, I make sure that the place is clean and ready for her session. I get all the equipment ready for Mya (cameras, lighting, etc.) and I do most of the post-production and editing work. Although I won’t get to meet you, Mya and I work together to provide all of our clients with an amazing experience!
Our clients are kind, strong, survivors, givers, mothers, wives, and smart women. Sometimes too busy to take care of themselves. We help them realize they are just as beautiful on the outside, and there is no shame in embracing their unique beauty and sexiness. We remind them that beauty comes in all shapes, colors, and sizes and that our beauty transforms throughout the years but is NEVER lost. We want our client to finally see herself through the eyes of the people who love and admire her. We have the best job in the world.

WHAT'S HOLDING YOU BACK?
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! This is YOUR shoot and you should pose on what you feel comfortable with. We are here to help you and guide you all the way.
#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.
