"If you’ve been thinking of doing a boudoir shoot Melisa is the one to go to! Her attention to detail is amazing. I was very nervous but she made me feel super comfortable. By the time we were done I had a huge confidence boost. When it came time to review the photos I got emotional. I could not believe that was me in the photos. Thank you so much Melisa! I cannot wait to pick up my order." -Lorraine

Book, Plan, Shoot, Order



BOOK: 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.


SHOOT: After hair and makeup, you'll definitely be feeling like a goddess, and then it's time to get started!


ORDER: Right after your session, you'll take a break for lunch, and then it's time for your view & order the gorgeous images we just created together!




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 boudoir photos 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! As your full service boudoir photographer, we have a full client closet ranging from XS-3X. 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. Plus one set is a sexy nude/ implied nude boudoir set, so you don't have to plan any outfits for that!



"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!"


"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!"

"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! :)"
