"Being a busy wife and Mom that works full time, I don’t have a whole lot of time to try new things. My 10 year wedding anniversary was coming up and I wanted to try something new and surprise my husband with something that he would never dream of!
I loved Everything about this experience! I felt so comfortable and beautiful the whole time. It was way more fun that what I had imagined it would be and Brittany did an amazing job capturing who I am and what my husband loves about my body! It was wonderful!"
"The session made me feel confident and comfortable despite my flaws. Time to love my forty- something self. My boudoir session was a surprise gift for my husband as we celebrate 25 years of marriage. It was time to pull out all the stops and knock his socks off!"
So much has changed in our world recently and shopping for your boudoir session has undergone a BIG change. With many stores not open and even more not allowing you to try on things, lingerie shopping is harder than ever! More women are moving online to places with fast delivery and easy returns like Amazon.
To help I have created this Shoppable Inspiration Board filled with What to Wear ideas and links to find the items or at least pointed in the right direction. And what's better than that? It's all affordable ideas, most are under $20.
There is nothing like staying home during a pandemic, wearing pajamas 24/7 and bingeing Netflix shows to make you realize: I NEED to feel beautiful again! And believe me, I need a reason to wear make-up and get out of pajamas, but I want to prioritize your safety over everything. So we are making a few changes in order to open the studio as safety as possible. Here is what you can expect if you book a session during this crazy COVID-19 pandemic time:
- A Heavily Cleaned Studio
- Everyone entering the studio, must sign a COVID waiver stating they have not experienced symptoms within the last 14 days.
- 48 Hours between Appointments
- Everyone must remove your shoes before entering the studio (don't worry your shoes will be safe)
"Wow, your studio is amazing." It's often the first thing a woman says as she enters my studio. I'm always surprised, but now that I think about it, I'm not really great about showing the studio....yes the gorgeous women in the studio, but never the space. So let's change that with this quick studio tour.
This studio was designed with boudoir in mind, so everything about it is completely customizable to fit the style and look of your dream boudoir session. The furniture is meant to be moved around to fit different poses and styles. The bed has 3 different comforters ranging from bridal white to dark and dramatic to fit any outfit. We offer a wide variety of outfits, jewelry, high heel shoes, angel wings, and robes all part of our client closet that's included with every session. (You can view every outfit and available sizes on our Story Highlight on Instagram.)
If you would like to see the studio in person, I would LOVE to give you a tour and chat about your boudoir photography session. Book a consultation here. Thanks and can't wait to work with you to make you feel beautiful and confident....just like you are!
Are you planning on giving your groom a sexy little gift on your wedding night? Here are five tips on what to wear for your bridal boudoir photo shoot:
When this gorgeous women and I were emailing back and forth about her boudoir session, I told her an embarrassing secret, "I am OBSESSED with red heads." I probably should have explained, but I left it at that, haha. What I shared during her session was, for some reason red headed women ALWAYS photograph beautifully and they are some of my favorite sessions. And Mrs. A was no different....she killed her boudoir session!
Here's what she had to say about her boudoir photography session:
Everyone should do a boudoir photo shoot, it's empowering and makes you feel super sexy! This shoot was so much fun- not only did I feel like the sexiest woman alive it gave me a self confidence boost. I will book another session for sure!

As you can imagine, I get this question a lot. And while there is no right answer for everyone, I can give you a few places I love, depending on your shopping preferences.
For an Experience:
Do you want to feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman where all the sales people are doting on you, finding you the perfect sizes, and tell you what looks best? Make an appointment at Anna Bella Fine Lingerie in Alpharetta, GA. Yes, it's a bit of a drive, but take a friend and make a day of it in Atlanta.
For Supporting Local Small Business:
Located on Highway 58, Xcite Lingerie offers a variety of affordable options.
With the largest variety of sizes and colors to try on Adore Me and Victoria's Secret in Hamilton Place is a must-stop on any lingerie seeking mission.
I am a bit of an Amazon-holic, so my first stop for anything is always Amazon! But they surprisingly have a ton of great lingerie options (and make up about half of my client closet). I would take advantage of their great return policy and order a few different sizes, as some of the pieces tend to run small. Another great and affordable online option is Nasty Girl.
My Favorite Online Boutiques:
Thistle and Spire
If you follow our Instagram account, you might know I've been a little obsessed with these angel wings...
And they were a HUGE hit for our Valentine's Day sessions. But don't worry they aren't going anywhere. We currently have a black and Peach pair of angel wings that are just one of the many unique items I keep in my client closet for all my clients to enjoy during their session. So much of boudoir is about embracing a side of yourself you don't get to indulge in very often, so why not become a Victoria's Secret model! The second you slip these wings on it's impossible not to feel beautiful and glamorous !
