Boudoir is not just lingerie and lace things. WHAT??!!

I hear it all the time when talking about Portland boudoir, “Oh, you must mean naked photos?” 


The answer is no, I don’t mean naked photos.  I DO, however, mean tasteful, elegant, beautifully sexy photos.  You don’t have to be naked during your session to still gain confidence and feel sexy in your own skin.  Instead, let’s keep it classy.  

You’re in control of your Portland boudoir session


You can be as sexy or conservative as you like.  You call the shots!  You don’t have to be naked… unless, of course, you want to.

My personal opinion is the more you leave to the imagination, the more exciting and tempting the photo. If you want to wear your birthday suit, I will recommend that even then we use a white bed sheet to cover your ASSests. ;)  Or his button up shirt with nothing underneath. Or heck, just a pair of cowboy boots and a hat covering you. 


This might be completely outsize your comfort zone

It’s definitely normal to be nervous, but you’ll get more comfortable throughout your session.  

We’ll get to know each other and I will pose you from head to toe!  Once we start shooting, I promise your nerves will disappear.  

I wouldn’t be surprised if you decided to shed your robe and show off a little more skin, this happens more often than you’d think ;)  

Once again, this is totally up to you. You don’t have to be naked!  It’s your day.   


Let’s keep it classy and sexy  


Each session is unique and created to represent YOU.  Boudoir is an art AND an experience.  There are so many tasteful outfit options for photos, so you never have to be naked during your session.


For example, try a sexy robe or oversize sweater that slides off your shoulder… even his button up shirt.  


Have a favorite sports team?  A jersey is perfect, while also covering everything.  


These looks are extremely sexy without showing too much for your Portland boudoir photoshoot. 


I’ll help you plan your outfits during your wardrobe consultation that is scheduled with me as soon as you have booked your session date. You will NEVER be alone in this process. I will walk you through every single detail and hold your hand every step of the way to ensure you get the session of your dreams.


Still questioning your outfits?  That’s ok!  During your wardrobe consultation, we literally go over everything but if you have questions now please feel free to email me at no question is a dumb question. Except maybe, “should I lose weight before my session” because my answer is always NO!!! Get your curvy perfect body in here now and let me prove to you that you can love the woman you are RIGHT NOW!  ;) 


Just remember, the best thing you can wear is your confidence. You never HAVE to be naked.
