About Boudoir Photography
The boudoir genre is characterized by elegant intimate portraits in a woman’s dressing area or bedroom. It’s definitely sexy, but it’s not trashy. Some women give the photos to her partner as a gift while others do it for the experience of feeling beautiful. It’s especially popular with brides to be wishing to give her new husband an extra special gift on her wedding day.
But these aren’t just any regular portraits. They’re all about making you feel sexy and confident. So all boudoir sessions can include pampering prior to the shoot by a professional hair and makeup artist. Your session will feel like a fashion shoot!

But no need to worry. Our studio is a safe space where you can just be you. We’re body positive and think everyone should do a boudoir session. You’ll have a ton of fun at your shoot and feel amazing afterwards!

She has won several awards, has been featured in many fashion and bridal magazines, as well as online wedding and designers blogs. Her experience ranges from film and television, to corporate and music videos, cd covers, as well as runway, print, editorial and bridal.
The best part of being a beauty photographer is that I help women feel great about themselves. It’s amazing to me how empowered and confident clients are once they leave the studio. Any fears or concerns about themselves they had walking through the door completely vanish. It’s a transforming experience for them and for me.
I studied photography at the New England School of Photography in Boston where I concentrated in environmental portraiture. For fun my wife and I like exploring Boston’s restaurants or checking out an indie movie. We make our home in the Melrose area with our new baby girl Kiera
