Get to know me

A fun, patient and sensitive photographer to walk you through a once-in-a-life-time-experience.

 

Hello gorgeous, I'm Melisa! Through Boudoir Photography, I help women feel empowered and sexy as they learn to embrace their unique beauty and own their fierce femininity. My boudoir studio is located in North County San Diego. Clients travel to me from all over the country to have their boudoir session.

 

My Why...

 

What inspires me most is the beauty in EVERY woman. No matter what season of life you're in, feeling beautiful is so important!

 

A little about me: boy mom, natural health connoisseur, dog mom, gardener/ homesteader, homeschooler, red wine lover, travel junkie, and flip flop wearer. I love the mountains, but not the snow. I love the sun, but not the beach (unless it's the Caribbean with 80° water). When I'm not working you can find me momming it up with my boys, reading, or drinking a glass of wine with the hubs.

My dream super power:
the ability to fly
My spirt animal is a:

ⓐ Tiger

ⓑ Monkey

◉ Honey Bee

Before I die I want to:

ⓐ Skydive

◉ Travel to 10 more countries

ⓒ Swim with sharks

My favorite food:
Anything Mediterranean
My dream vacation:

◉ Deep in the mountains

ⓑ Cityscape & skylines

ⓒ Somewhere tropical

"So fun! Melisa and her team were amazing helping me get ready, I was super comfortable and loved the creativity involved! I would definitely recommend this experience. Not only did I receive an amazing final product, I also got a confidence boost! Give it a try :)" -Taylor

HOW IT ALL WORKS

 

Book, Plan, Shoot, Order

BOOK: Once you are ready, choose a date for your session, pay the session fee, set up a Pre-Payment Plan, and then sign your contract. Plan your session at minimum 8-10 weeks before your deadline to ensure we have plenty of time to get your fancy album in!

 

PLAN: Your pre-session consultation includes wardrobe planning and shopping help. Want to know what I think of an outfit? Text me! I want to provide an amazing experience for you, and that means I'm invested from the beginning to end!

 

SHOOT: Arrive for your session and be ready to get pampered! After hair and makeup, you'll definitely be feeling like a goddess, and then it's time to get started! For the next hour and a half it's photoshoot time! Don't worry, I'll guide you the entire way and coach you through each pose.

 

ORDER: Right after your session, you'll take a break for lunch, and then it's time for your view & order meeting. We'll watch a slideshow of your images and admire what a babe you are! Together we'll narrow down your favorites and choose your favorite products. You'll pay in full, and then 4-6 weeks later your order arrives!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Q: Do you share all of my images on the internet?

A: Absolutely not! I only share images that my clients sign a release for allowing me to share. There are different levels of sharing too, including lingerie only, or anonymous. Or you can keep your images completely private.

 

Q: Is hair & makeup included with the session fee?

A: YES! I have an amazing team of professional hair + makeup artists! Makeup includes false lashes.

 

Q: I’m not a model, so I don’t know how to pose. Do you help with that?

A: 100%. All of my clients are REAL WOMEN, just like you! I take care of the posing right down to your fingertips. By the end of your session, you might just FEEL like a supermodel!

 

Q: I don’t know what to wear. Can you help me with that?

A: Absolutely! We have a full client closet ranging from XS-3X and we also help you out with wardrobe consultation and styling so that you can shop for your own pieces! It’s really not as scary as it seems.

TESTIMONIALS

MISS V

"I had the best experience doing a boudoir photo shoot with Melisa. Her studio the boudoir barn was on an old avocado tree property and the views were amazing. I did have to do the shoot early in the morning which meant I was driving in traffic it took me about 3 hrs there and back from San Diego but totally worth it! Her hair and make up team was great she captured the Smokey eye, glamour look I was going for. The shoot made me feel so sexy she empowered! Looking back at the photos I am so happy, I would do it again in a heart beat! I gave my husband a book for our wedding day gift. It was such great quality and he loved it! Thanks for a great experience!"

MISS J

"Everything was well put together, it was tons of fun and she did a great job! I got to pick my pictures and plan at the end and she explained everything. Would suggest this to all my friends!"

MISS M

"This experience was one of the best I've had!! I was unsure about doing a boudoir photo shoot, but decided to go through with it. I am so glad I did!! Melisa and her stylist helped me to get all prettied up with makeup and hair and I had never felt prettier. Melisa also helped me to feel relaxed and comfortable through the whole session and walked me through step by step. The pictures and products I ordered turned out amazing and I will forever treasure them! :)"
