You want photos that make you believe in your own beauty- photos that show you sides of yourself you’ve never seen.
A boudoir photography session with us gives you the time and space you need to relax into the experience. We will guide you every step of the way, from choosing your wardrobe to posing and coaching your most beautiful expressions, to celebrating the amazing results with you and helping you pick art for your walls.
Our hair and makeup artist Michelle will work with you to create a look you love, whether that’s a rom-com take-your-breath-away makeover or a relaxed girl next door beauty. There’s no rush, nobody waiting for you to be done so the next session can start- our day is about you and your experience.
Hundreds of women have walked out our studio door feeling more powerful, beautiful, and confident than ever before. That boudoir high is an incredible feeling, and I’d love to share that magic with you. ~ xoxo ~
The boudoir experience is very personal and while price is a factor for all of us, I want you to choose me as your photographer because you truly believe I will give you an experience that will change the way you see yourself and that you’ll treasure forever – not because I cost more or less than the guy down the street. We are the best in the business and our pricing reflects that, but we have payment plans that mean this can be an affordable experience for anyone.
Your $499 session fee includes:
A fun, empowering, confidence-building photoshoot that will change the way you see yourself
Posing and expression coaching that will mean you rock these photos AND every one you have taken from now on
Professional hair & makeup tailored to your personal style, by one of Edmonton's premier artists

All the bits and pieces you need to fill in any gaps in your wardrobe

No products or images are included in your session fee, but all the pampering and love is!
We have a wide range of beautiful products for you to choose from. From individual albums, wall galleries and digital packages to our popular collections of all sorts of gorgeous things, you get to pick exactly what you want- and we have payment plans if you’re worried about blowing your budget.
Collections start at $1700, albums at $1299, and we have pre-payment plans you can start before your shoot that earn you fun bonuses!
Our gorgeous custom designed heirloom albums tell the story of your shoot, bringing back the fun, sexy, confident feelings from your session every time you open them. They have deliciously thick pages, scrumptious covers in a huge variety of silks, velvets, linens and leathers, and if you feel like sharing they make a stunning gift!
Your daily reminder that you are beautiful. Being the art on your own walls is an incredible experience, whether you prefer striking anonymous art nudes, a stunning portrait, or some truly smoldering sexiness.
Ready to blow some minds? Because of course you're going to want to show these off! Digital images let you share your art with a select few or splash them all over Facebook and watch the compliments roll in.
Yes! My makeup artist and partner in crime Michelle Grad is an internationally acclaimed artist who has travelled the world with me. She will work with you to create a look you love and that is uniquely you- no one-size-fits-all glam here. All you have to do is relax, sip something bubbly and let her pamper you.
Only if you want me to! Your comfort and safety are my number one priority. The reason you see so many different women on my website, Facebook and Instagram is that lots of women are excited to show their images to the world, not because it’s a requirement.
Short answer: Whatever makes you feel sexy or beautiful. Long answer: This can be anything from Parisian lingerie to your favourite comfy sweater or geeky t-shirt. When you book with us we send you a complete prep and wardrobe guide, and at your consult we’ll talk over what you want to wear and help you make any tough choices. We can even arrange complimentary personal shopping experiences at local lingerie boutiques. Don’t stress it, we got you!
Absolutely! We have flexible payment plans available at your ordering session, and we’ve even introduced pre-payment plans- so if you book your shoot at least 2 months in advance you have the option of paying for some products in advance and getting fun bonuses, from lingerie gift cards to vintage polaroid snaps.
Yes, but no. Yes, I edit lighting, colour balance, and details like acne and cellulite and where your bra strap cuts in. No, I don’t edit you to make you look a different size or shape. Good editing is like good makeup; it enhances what’s there, it doesn’t fundamentally change you.
Boudoir is about learning to love your body the way it is, and part of that is being authentic and not Photoshopping out parts you don’t like. That being said, if there are parts of your body you’re still uncomfortable with or just learning to love, rest assured that I use will use flattering light and posing to make you look your best; those parts won’t worry you in the final photos, I just don’t need Photoshop to do that.
Gorgeous custom-designed heirloom albums and classic wall art with a beautiful brush-laminate finish. There’s something wonderful, in this digital age, about a tangible printed photograph, and having a gorgeous photo of yourself on the wall is a great daily reminder that no matter what your hair is doing that day, you ARE all that and a bag of chips.
Yes, it’s entirely up to you how you want to enjoy your images. Digital collections and albums cost about the same amount, or most women get both for a great discount in one of our packages.
We do things a bit differently around here- for all of our regular studio experiences we don’t count the minutes and we don’t police how many outfits you bring. That being said, we find 4-5 different “looks” (we include nudes as a look if you choose to do them) is the sweet spot for giving you lots of variety in your images without getting bogged down in constantly changing clothes. We want you to be able to be in the moment!
My favourite lingerie boutiques in Edmonton are Bayberries Intimates and Princess Lingerie- they do custom fittings and have great customer service. Night Owl Lingerie in Manulife Place is the place to go if you want to indulge in incredible European imports, Midnight Magic in St Albert has a good selection of plus-sized lingerie, and Torrid, Addition-Elle and La Vie en Rose are mainstream retailers that usually have great finds (word to the wise, Torrid has a better selection online than in stores).
If you want some helping finding lingerie you love, you can text me photos as you shop or we can set up a complimentary personal shopping experience with one of our fab local boutiques. We have your back!
You will. I know you are having trouble believing it, but you will. I have literally never had anyone not like their photos, because I know what a good photo looks like and I only show you photos I’m sure you will love. I have been doing boudoir photography for more than 15 years and I am one of the best in the world at what I do. However, if you don’t love them you get your money back.
It’s okay, nerves are totally normal. It’s part of what makes your boudoir shoot such a high- doing this totally terrifying thing and then having it turn out to be awesome fun that makes you feel amazing is a totally exhilarating experience. I promise, once you get in the studio door it will be fine! But I’m here to support you every step of the way.
Leading up to your session and after, I’m only ever an email away; I want this to be a wonderful experience all the way through. I know that doing a boudoir shoot is outside of most people’s comfort zones and I will be here for you throughout the entire process. In addition, we have an AMAZING Facebook community full of supportive women, many of whom have done shoots with us before- they are a fantastic resource and are great at soothing jitters if you post there!
