    The Studio

    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.  

  • How It Works

    Your session includes:

    • Sixty minutes of photography, set in the privacy of our

      Lafayette studio

    • Pre-Session planning consultation (in advance)

    • Two of your favorite outfits, resulting in 60 of the best images from the shoot

    After your boudoir shoot, we'll meet again for a preview party! That's where you'll choose your favorites image from your session. (Trust us, this is the hard part, so many to choose from!) During your preview party is when you'll place your order for a boutique keepsake collection.


     From gorgeous wall art to sexy little black books, our boutique keepsakes are high quality products that will last for generations. All images are professionally retouched by hand and includes smoothing skin, removing blemishes, firming up dimples, and flattening tummies. Ask us about our payment plans.

(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.
