  • About Us

    Just a lady trying to help other ladies feel confident.

    April Courville

    The Photographer

    April graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a bachelors in Fine Arts in photography. She has been providing professional photography services for over a decade and has specialized in boudoir photography since 2011. Her work has been featured in local publications such as the Times of Acadiana. In her spare time, she writes for a few publications in town and loves hanging out on her back porch (glass of wine in hand) with her cat Spice and her boyfriend Jake.

     

    Our studio is located in the historic Saint Streets neighborhood in central Lafayette, LA. Because we specialize in photographing women, our studio is designed specifically with boudoir photography in mind. It features plenty of natural light, plush furniture and beautiful bedding. But if soft textures aren't your thing, we work with you to create the session that's only limited by your imagination.

  • Why Boudoir Photography?

    You have your own reason. Your own story. We can help you tell it.

  • Questions?

    We've got answers.

    Do you provide outfits?

    We do not provide clothing or jewelry. Please bring these items along with you. We want you to feel AMAZING in whatever you wear to your shoot and only you can find the perfect outfit that’s perfect for you.

    Need ideas? During your consultation, we’ll give you all the tips and tricks you need to help you prepare for your shoot. We have years of experience and expertise in this area. We even encourage you to make a Pinterest board dedicated to your shoot to gather ideas.

     

    To start, consider the interest of the gift recipient. Do they have a favorite sports team, an interesting hobby, or a favorite shirt? If so, you might want to bring your own sports jersey, military themed outfit, or that shirt. If this is a wedding gift for your spouse or groom, bring your veil, wedding shoes, or something else specific to your wedding that will help tie these sexy photos to that very special day. Need ideas? Check out our Pinterest board.

    How long is the process?

    Your preview party is scheduled 1-2 weeks after the shoot. Orders take 3-4 weeks, depending on which keepsake collection you order. We encourage to allow for at least a month if you’re shooting for a specific date.

    Do you provide payment plans?

    We require a $200 deposit when you book a full boudoir experience and full payment is due upfront for a Boudie Brief. Since products are ordered separately, we can split up the payments of keepsake collections.

    Does makeup include false lashes?

    Yass queen! False lashes may sound scary but they make a huge difference in your images.

    What days do you shoot?

    We schedule boudoir shoots mostly on the weekends, mid-morning. (Anyone up for brunch after all that fabulousness?) We do try to be as accommodating as possible, shoot us an email if your schedule conflicts with weekends.

    How do you ensure privacy?

    We respect that some women may not want their beautiful face all over the internet. During your consultation, you sign a model release indicating how comfortable you are with us using your images. We never share images without your permission and we use a professional print lab. All the women you see here have given us permission to use the photos.

    Where do you shoot?

    We have a studio in central Lafayette, LA. If you’re looking for a more editorial look, we also have a larger studio space in downtown Lafayette.

    Can I bring a friend or spouse?

    Hey, if it makes you feel more comfortable, go for it. Our studio space is small so we ask that if you want to bring a friend that you limited it to one person. Adults only, no little ones please. However, we find that bringing a friend can sometimes be a distraction. Also, ladies leave your man at home. This club is full of boss babes only.

    Can I do my own hair and makeup?

    The Full Boudoir Experience includes professional hair and makeup. If it wasn’t included and you had to do it yourself, it wouldn’t be the same pampering experience! Our Boudie Briefs do not include hair and makeup, so you can do your own hair and makeup for them. Rock your makeup tricks.

(Privacy Policy)
We understand that your boudoir session is a very private, intimate experience. We do everything we can to keep it that way. We will not post any images from your session on our webpage, blog or social media without your consent. Your online gallery is a private link that will be emailed to you after your viewing session. If you wish to share your online gallery, you are free to do so on your terms, by forwarding the link. We will not share your personal information with anyone. 
While we do love to show off our work on our website and other outlets, images posted online are kept anonymous by cropping out any identifying content. (With your permission, of course.) On the other hand, if you love your images, feel free to share them with all your gal pals. And don’t forget to tell them about your experience! Ask about our referral program. 

(Cancelation Policy)
A non-refundable retainer deposit of $200 is due at the time of booking. This ensures that your session date is guaranteed and is applied to your package. A final date of your session is booked and verified during your pre-session consultation. Cancelations are accepted up to 48 hours prior to your session date. If a cancelation occurs after this period, the full session fee will be invoiced.
If you are unable to keep your session appointment, we will happily reschedule once at no additional fee. Additional rescheduling is offered at a fee of $50 and is also applied toward your package.
We are confident that you’ll absolutely love the images from your session. However, we all have bad hair days. If for whatever reason, you aren’t 100% satisfied with your final images, we’ll schedule one reshoot at no additional cost to you. We want you to be completely ecstatic about your boudoir images.
