What is boudoir?
Boudoir photography is defined at the capturing of images of a woman in an intimate environment like a bedroom. However, a boudoir photoshoot is so much more than that. It's the opportunity to remind you that you are beautiful, fierce less, beautiful, and capable of doing amazing things. It's the opportunity to see yourself in a way you've never seeing you before. To embrace and celebrate all of you. Right now.

Before + After
“But I'm not a model, I don't take good photos, and I don't know how to pose sexy.”
Our clients are NOT models! They are amazing women with regular jobs, families, and lives just like the rest of us and most have the same doubts you might have right now. Please know that you’ll be guided every step of the way! From what to wear, to your camera-ready makeup, and full posing coaching. We want you to rock your shoot and realize that you CAN do this!
welcome to our place!
Is a bit of a drive but so worth it! At least that's what our clients say. :-) Five years ago we moved our boudoir sessions from a commercial studio into our home and our clients just love it. Our place provides a comfortable, cozy, private, and safe place for your session. You won’t have to drag your bags full of lingerie through offices or total strangers staring.
Our space is also unique! You will not have your photos taken at the same location where other photographers have access to. We’ve designed our space just for you! Working from home also gives us the flexibility to provide unique sets (like the vintage tub and shower set) that are not possible to setup at commercial locations, so you have more options than most other studios provide!

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…
Who We are
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.

PHOTOGRAPHER + 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 have the best job in the world.
