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

The Boudoir Barn

Our one-of-a-kind luxury studio is located 30 minutes from Oceanside, 25 minutes from Temecula, and under an hour from downtown San Diego.


As a boudoir photographer, my top priority is to provide my clients with an unforgettable experience that leaves them feeling confident, empowered, and beautiful. That’s why I am committed to continually improving my boudoir studio to ensure that my clients receive the highest quality service and experience possible.


Over the years, I’ve learned that small changes can make a big difference when it comes to creating the perfect boudoir atmosphere. That’s why I’ve invested in new furnishings that are not only stylish but also comfortable, creating a space that’s warm, inviting, and conducive to capturing stunning photographs.

I recognize that privacy and discretion are of utmost importance to my clients. That’s why I’ve taken steps to increase privacy within the studio, creating an exclusive and intimate atmosphere where clients can relax and be themselves without fear of judgment or scrutiny.


By continuously striving to improve my boudoir studio, I am demonstrating my unwavering commitment to providing the highest quality service and experience for my clients. With every photoshoot, I aim to create a safe, welcoming, and empowering environment that leaves my clients feeling beautiful, confident, and empowered.
