Yes, always! We work with some of the very best makeup artists in the northwest! Hair and make-up services are included in every package. We’re always happy to customize a look based on what you're the most comfortable with, from natural to full on glam!
How should I prepare for my photo shoot?
Few Days Before:
Get your hair cut or colored so it’s in its best shape.
Treat yourself to a manicure/pedicure. We find that light pinks and nudes look best for nails or go bright red if you want a punch of color in all the photos! For your toes, feel free to go with a fun color or match the pink and nudes.
Choose what you are going to wear.
Don’t forget lingerie / high heels / accessories. We do have heels in the studio for you ranging in sizes from 6 to 10
If you have purchased new items then remove the tags and/or stickers.
Choose some loose fitting clothes to travel in. Make sure to wear nothing that leaves elastic marks on your skin!
A Few Hours Before:
Give yourself time to have a nice relaxing bath or shower.
Start imagining yourself as the confident, sexy women that you want to see looking back at you from these photos.
Shave anything that needs shaving, or we recommend waxing a few days before.
One final check of lingerie / high heels / accessories and pack it all into a bag. All you need to do is show up and we've got the rest!
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I COME TO THE STUDIO FOR MY PHOTO SHOOT?
Your makeup artist will welcome you into our beautiful boudoir studio with your choice of champagne, sparkling water, or tea. She will spend some time getting to know the looks you want to achieve and what you feel comfortable with. She will put on some high-energy music from your collection or ours and begin with hair and makeup. Our photographer will then arrive and help you choose your outfits from the selections you brought, When we’re done we will begin shooting, and we will guide you through the poses that will make your individual body look its very sexiest. In no time at all, you will be posing like a pro and full of confidence!
CAN I HAVE A GUEST IN THE STUDIO DURING MY PEEKABOO SHOOT?
DO YOU RETOUCH IMAGES?
We prefer to think of what we do as “perfecting” images. Our mission, first and foremost, is to make you feel sexy and gorgeous as YOU, not as a plastic Barbie doll! We do the perfect amount of smoothing and perfecting on all the right places- just the finishing touches to bring out your natural, unique glow. We touch up light blemishes, acne, and bruises that are temporary. We can't touch up tan lines, however.
We can do further retouching upon request for a fee.
Yes and no... We want you to be as comfortable as possible and get the assistance you need, but remember that having another set of eyes on you could make you feel self-conscious. We do limit it to one person, and we ask that you bring a female friend. Our studio, as lavish as it is, is small, so we ask that your guest stay seated so that we have plenty of room to photograph. We also kindly request that your guest does not photograph you in our studio.
Do you offer maternity boudoir?
Yes! We love and honor the journey of motherhood and would be happy to photograph your maternity boudoir session. With a focus on the natural belly, we love scheduling these around the 7-month mark to make sure you feel your best. Documenting the magic of pregnancy is so beautiful as it's such a transformational, sacred, and fleeting time. While we don't include dad here, we are happy to include elements of the baby-to-be with ultrasound photographs and baby blankets. White sheets, soft cotton, sheer form-fitting maternity dresses, and bandeau bras work really well for these sessions. However, we love the timeless and iconic nude photos with hands under the belly and over the breasts a la Demi Moore's 1991 Vanity Fair cover photo.
DO YOU DO COUPLES SHOOTS? WHAT ABOUT MEN?
DO YOU SHARE IMAGES ON THE WEB?
Never without your permission! We respect your privacy and would never show images that you have not approved, nor do we ever use real names. We do love to show off our empowering photos to share with other women so they can learn more about our studio. We can always crop parts of the image so you remain anonymous, but you still have the thrill of seeing your gorgeous self-published!
We specialize in the Modern Boudoir Experience for women only. Our female-run business specializes in creating breath-taking and empowering images of women, by women, looking as sexy and confident as ever! However, we are happy to recommend local photographers for these services.
HOW EARLY SHOULD I BOOK MY PEEKABOO SHOOT TO MAKE SURE IT’S READY ON TIME?
What about outfits?
We can typically photograph three to possibly four total looks. A "look" can also be nude. A variety of options are great to have around and we can help you narrow down what will photograph best. A lot of our clients stick to sexy bras and panties; classic and seductive. Bodysuits and corsets always look great. Stockings, jewelry, and pearls are always fun. After booking, we'll send you our inspiration guide with over 20 outfit ideas. Many women like to buy new lingerie for the shoot and then hide it away until they get their album and surprise their love with the album and the new lingerie. We offer a curated collection of lingerie for purchase at the studio. When your partner sees you in the lingerie that you wore in the photos it’s sure to get a very enthusiastic reaction!
We like to leave eight to twelve weeks between your shoot and the day your partner unwraps their awesome gift. This allows for ample post-production and album design time, as well as the opportunity to upgrade or order additional add- ons when you fall in LOVE with your pictures.

Now for the hardest part of all: choosing which of the beautiful photographs you want to keep! The images usually take about 3-6 weeks to process (we can put a rush on this for a small fee) and once they are ready, we will schedule your viewing and ordering session. This is the time to choose the collection that you would like. Our collections start at $1600 and all include an album. We’re happy to guide you through the process of choosing them or narrowing them down. Depending on which collection you choose, they will be ready to pick up or drop ship within 4 to 6 weeks. We will always make sure to get your products to you in time for that special anniversary or birthday present. The best part of all is seeing your partner’s reaction to your incredibly gorgeous photos and feeling the difference in your confidence day after day. You deserve it!
