Boudoir

Look beautiful. Feel confident. Love your boudoir photos.

Celebrate Yourself

Boudoir images are for YOU to celebrate who you are, embrace where you are in life, and appreciate every part of you. No matter your life stage or relationship status, your pre- or post-kids body, how far you feel you have to go; boudoir is for you.

Time to See Yourself in a Whole New Light

Boudoir photography is more than just a collection of stunning images in your lingerie; it’s a transformative journey that encourages self-love, acceptance, and confidence. Join me on a journey of self-discovery and treat yourself to the ultimate self-care experience that will forever enhance the way you perceive yourself. Embrace your unique beauty, because you deserve to be celebrated, cherished, and adored – both by the world and, most importantly, by yourself.

Step outside of your everyday life

  • Got a milestone celebration or bucket list item?
  • Feeling low on confidence or not loving your body?
  • Stuck in a rut or about to start a new stage of life?
  • Maybe your body has gone through a change (or is about to) and you want to celebrate all that it has done for you.
  • Need a unique ‘for-your-eyes-only’ glamorous gift for your special someone?
  • Want to push yourself out of your comfort zone?
  • Feel like you could use some time being pampered and doing something just for yourself?

 

Whatever the reason, a boudoir session is a chance to pamper, celebrate, and find that fierce woman living inside of you. Just imagine looking back in 10, 20, 30 years from now and remembering how fabulous your body and soul were at this stage in your life.

You are already braver than most for considering a boudoir shoot.

I have had a boudoir session myself and have been in your shoes. I can speak from personal experience how daunting a boudoir session can be, but also transformational from the inside out.

Having your photos taken in such an intimate way deserves a huge pat on the back. On a scale of ‘heck no’ to 10, you might find yourself closer to ‘heck no’. That’s normal. I expect and plan for it. I won’t tell you not to be nervous – you’re in your underwear after all – but I offer you a safe and private place to just be your beautiful self and indulge in a truly exclusive experience. I’ll be your biggest cheerleader and help you work through those nerves. You won’t find body shaming or judgment here, instead you’ll find your boudoir session to be a powerful, affirming and transformative experience.

How to see yourself in a new light:

Get in touch – Let’s book you in

Complete the contact form or call me on +41 79 866 6216 to see if I have availability. I will contact you within 24-48 hours to schedule a free Discovery Call to discuss your vision and what you want from your shoot. During our call I’ll answer your questions and we’ll both know if I am the right photographer for you. If you decide to book a session we will move forward and fix a date for your photo shoot! 

Booking your shoot requires a) selecting a date b) payment of your non-refundable session fee and c) signing my contract so that you are clear on my policies. 

Your session is not reserved until these 3 things have happened! I get booked out months in advance so please book in asap. If you want your artwork or albums for a certain date, I recommend booking 3 months in advance.

Book your session now!

Pre-Shoot Consultation

To help you feel confident and prepared for your session, we will schedule a Pre-Shoot Consultation, which normally takes place 10-14 days before your session. Whether on Zoom or in person at my place, we’ll take 45 minutes to discuss your goals and choose some outfits for your session. We’ll discuss how you want to display (or keep private!) your boudoir photos. The Pre-Shoot Consultation also gives us a chance to get to know each other before your shoot, which really helps you feel more comfortable on the day. You will also receive a detailed Styling and Preparation Guide to help you prepare for your Ultimate Boudoir Experience. 

During your session

You’ll be pretty nervous when you arrive, but as soon as you start your makeover and we put on your favourite playlist, your nerves will quickly fade.

A big concern for most clients is posing and the fear of not knowing what to do with their hands, face or body. If you don’t know what you’re doing, DON’T WORRY, no one does when they first come to me. You don’t have to know a single pose: I’ll direct you every step of the way. I’ll find your best angles and coach you into them, so that the final photos look natural and relaxed, and show you at your best.

By the end of your boudoir photo experience you’ll be walking tall and feeling confident in your body. 

View and order your photos

At this appointment, you will come to review your gorgeous gallery. I will go through your photos with you, helping you to select the best of the best. The purpose of this meeting is to place your final order, so choose a time when ALL decision makers can attend. From here you are able to pick your favourite images and decide on what package or collection you will select to create a memorable album or wall art. Samples will be on hand for viewing and you will get my professional input to help you narrow down your choices.

If additional meetings are required, I will happily accommodate this for CHF50 per time, to cover my overhead and/or extra travel & time to meet with you.

Please note that I do not do online proofing. If you have family overseas or others who wish to place an order that cannot attend, please ask me about the option of having selected images put on an app for viewing.

Collect your albums and wall art

You finally get to hold and see your stunning album or beautiful art work in person! This is always the most exciting time for me as your photographer: seeing the wonder on your face when you see your beautiful self in print. Depending on what you ordered, you could have your portraits 2 weeks after placing your order. Some products such as albums and wall art take longer and may arrive 4-6 weeks after placing your order.

Testimonials

Don’t just take my word for it, here’s what some clients had to say about their boudoir photo shoots with me.

Hi, I’m Amber

My own boudoir experience was a transformational one, and the reason why I am offering you the same experience. I would never have pushed myself outside my comfort zone to do one of ‘those shoots’ but my husband gave me a boudoir session for my 40th birthday.

I went to the shoot out of curiosity and with an adventurous spirit. The photographer immediately put me at ease; although she was a complete stranger, I felt very safe and in good hands. I really enjoyed letting go of all my inhibitions and feeling seen for who I truly was. When I left the shoot I felt like a supermodel and like a million dollars. To this day, I still remember that ecstatic feeling!

When I then saw the photos, they were a revelation to me – so much better than I had imagined. It was like seeing another version of myself, the way she had seen me, and they were FABULOUS. Although that was over 10 years ago, I still have the canvases on my bedroom wall.

My boudoir photo shoot was an investment with compound returns because I got so much more than just a makeover and some photos. I gained a new confidence and an acceptance of my body despite all of its lumps, bumps and lines. My boudoir photos remind me that inside I still have that magic, and I want that for you, too.

You’ve Got Questions about Boudoir – I’ve Got Answers

First of all, recognise the fact that even considering a boudoir session takes some courage – you are braver than you think! Believe it or not, there are not many people who walk into a shoot relaxed and ready. Ahead of your shoot, we’ll have your Pre-Shoot Consultation to help you prepare. I’ll also arm you with my Styling and Preparation Guide as well as tips and tricks to have the best time ever during your shoot. Everyone has nerves and I expect the first few minutes of the shoot to be a little stiff. If you feel like you have no idea what to do or expect, that is completely normal. I do everything I can to make you feel relaxed and comfortable during your session. I walk you through the entire process and offer all the direction you need. I am always available via phone as well. I am here for you and ready to support and cheer you on.

Yes, that is my job! I will direct you through the entire session, so you don’t need to worry about a thing. I get into the pose myself to show you how it looks, and then assist you with the pose from your head to your toes. I know how to capture your most natural poses, movements and expressions. I am not only a professional boudoir photographer, but also someone who has had my own session and knows what it’s like to be on your side of the lens. So trust me, I’ve got you!

I understand the delicate and intimate nature of your images and I respect every client’s privacy. Every client has the choice to either decline the Model Release, keeping her images off the internet and inside the studio, or release her images to be published publicly.

I never use photos for marketing or any other reason without your written permission.

If you choose to release your images, they may be posted to Facebook, on my website, in my blog posts, and on my marketing materials. However, if you choose to sign the release, rest assured that I NEVER use your name on any posts and I do not tag you on social media. Your images stay anonymous. You are more than welcome to tag yourself in any image posted and share them from my website and social media.

Yes!! Professional Hair and Makeup is included in all my boudoir sessions. You will spend approximately 1-1.5 hours in hair and makeup being pampered by one of my amazing artists before we start your session.

Clients must bring their own clothing and jewellery to their boudoir session. However, when you arrive, we will go through your wardrobe options with you to help you choose the perfect pieces. I do suggest bringing a few extra options just in case.

I do have a variety of heels in sizes 39-40, so if you don’t have heels, don’t feel like you have to run out and buy a pair.

Please try on all of your wardrobe pieces before your session to ensure everything fits properly and you are comfortable in it. 

I am an all female company that works with women only. I do not work with couples, men, male identifying individuals or more than 1 client at a time.

You are welcome to schedule back to back shoots with your friends, however all shoots are solo shoots & experiences.

In order to ensure I am able to focus on celebrating and supporting you, and getting images you adore, I ask that your friends do not attend your shoot. They are welcome to walk you to the door, see the studio, meet me – then they can pick you up when your session is finished.

Short answer is no. I want to have 100% of your attention during the photo session. Having a friend present can be a distraction for both you and me. If you feel you must bring someone with you (and that includes furry friends), they are required to wait somewhere else while you are in the studio with me.

I do not work off of a shot list, but if you have a few ideas, I will look at them and try to incorporate them if I can. Rest assured that I have been doing this for a while and know what poses will look great. If you have one small prop such as a coffee mug or a book, feel free to bring it and I can incorporate it in. I do not shoot multiple props, bondage gear or costume-like outfits in the studio. If you have very specific ideas or multiple props to use for your session, it is considered a custom session and will have special pricing. Please call for more details.

I do photograph nudes, and they are done in a very tasteful and artistic style. It is not required that you come into your shoot knowing exactly where your comfort levels are or how much you want to expose. I am flexible and will work with you to capture a variety of images during your shoot in each outfit you bring. I will never pressure you or ask you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable – you can decide at the time how you feel.

All purchased images are retouched to remove distracting items (wall sockets, light switches, etc), to adjust lighting and hue, as well as white balance. Regarding body/skin edits, I follow your lead on editing and will do as much or as little as you would like. Full retouching includes the removal of blemishes, scrapes, bruises and anything temporary on the skin. Upon request, I will remove scars and stretch marks and smooth out cellulite. I will also do minor body modifications, where I smooth any bumps and bulges caused by the pose or your clothing.

Short answer: NO. Honestly, I would much rather have you come in pale or with a very light tan. Self-tanning products, whether it’s lotion or a spray tan, can leave you blotchy. Also, your skin may photograph with an orange tint, even if it doesn’t look orange to the naked eye. A tanning bed or natural suntan can create tan lines or white spots on your skin that may be visible in your photos.

If you insist on having a little colour for your session, I recommend lightly spray tanning 4-5 days before your session so it has time to fade a little. Please watch the areas around your ankles, knees and wrists. If you frequent a tanning bed, watch the area under your bottom and arms, where I usually see white areas. If you do come in with blotchy areas, a deep sunburn, or heavy tan lines, I am not responsible for evening the skin and removing any problem areas.
