Give yourself something incredible. Alli Murphy Photography

Isn't my hubby cute? P.S. you can thank him for all of the set designs ;)

Hello! I'm Alli.

I was born and raised on Long Island in Massapequa. I knew from the beginning that photography was my passion. At a very young age I acquired a camera and began taking photos. In my later years, I attended the New England Institute of Art where I graduated with a degree in Photography. I am so lucky to be doing what I love and I can't wait to share my passion with you!

What is Boudoir?

Chances are you probably have a general idea about what boudoir photography is, but here's your chance to learn all the details.

At Alli Murphy Photography, we provide the best professional hair and makeup services available. We do this not the make you look better, but to help you see, and feel that you are gorgeous!

The experience you receive as a client will not only make you feel beautiful, but our stylists will help you relax and build your confidence.

Confidence is truly a beautiful thing.

Confidence, self-acceptance and a whole lot of fun are the ingredients for a terrific photograph. When you know how fabulous you are, that confidence exudes in your photos, and that makes such a drastic difference between what you see in the mirror and your pictures.

As you likely know, pictures taken in a women's boudoir session are often provocative. It's just the mood that gets set when a woman's wearing lingerie or is workin' it in sexy poses! Do note, however, that there's a difference between provocative, inherent sexiness and tacky or overtly risqué.

We're all about bringing out a woman's wiles and showcasing her face and figure... but, we keep it ultra classy, ladies. You only need the courage to step into the studio, and our team will take care of the rest! We will be right there with you, every step of the way.

In short: boudoir photography is an opportunity to capture sensuous images of yourself for yourself. And your significant other may want to take a peek, too…

How does it work?

Initial Consultation

Before booking, you are welcome to call or come into the studio so that we can help you with any questions that you may have!

Book It

If you do not have any questions, or our lovely staff has already helped to answer the questions that you did have, you can book directly online

The Big Day

Your experience with us begins from the moment you enter our studio. We begin with champagne or white wine during your hair and makeup consultation. We will discuss your vision and what you're comfortable with before we start our shoot.

Our entirely female staff will make you feel comfortable and assist with your needs throughout the session. Our studio is structured to ensure your privacy. Your sessions will be discrete and private.

Photo Reveal

Now is the hard part! Once you come back to view your beautiful photos, we will assist you in narrowing down to your favorites! We will pick out the perfect product that fits your desires and guide you through how to present them to your sig. other or where to display them in your home!

Let us Glam you up!

You didn't think we were going to leave you hanging, did you? No way! Half the fun of a boudoir session at Alli Murphy Photography is the part where you get pampered!

We bring in a team of hair and makeup artists to get you looking and feeling -- absolutely gorgeous from head to toe. This is a complimentary service that's included in your package.

Our hair and makeup team is all about emphasizing all your gorgeous features. Based on the theme or vibe of your boudoir session, they'll work with you to create the best look. They always have lots of goodies, so you'll have plenty of flexibility.

After deciding on makeup, you'll work together to come up with the most flattering hairstyle for the shoot. We promise those tresses will be ultra glossy and nothing short of perfect.

Retouching?

Many women have fears when coming into the studio regarding retouching! Our clients love us because we know how to make you look flawless without making you look like a plastic barbie doll. We simply remove unwanted blemishes and leave the image looking like your beautiful self!

Removal of acne, stretch marks, and cellulite is part of the retouching process. We do some slimming as part of our editing process as well but the goal at every session is not to make you look drastically different than you look in person.

One of the top fears when preparing for your boudoir session is...

What Will I Wear?

What is the look you are going for? Sweet? Sexy? Sporty? Themed? Fantasy? Think VARIETY. One outfit with a thong, the next with a boy short. One outfit with a corset or underwire bra, the next a bodysuit! We love to photograph you in anything YOU think is sexy, or nothing at all!

Alway choose outfits would be most flattering for your body type. If you have lots of ideas and outfits and you’re having trouble narrowing them down, then we always recommend you bring more to your session than you think you may need. Many clients even bring a suitcase full of stuff!

Accentuate your assets. What makes you feel sexy? Are you doing this for someone? What is their favorite feature of yours? Make sure that YOU feel sexy. If your belly makes you feel self-conscious, get creative with a corset, baby doll or bodysuit! Your confidence will bleed through your images, so feeling comfortable is important. Make sure to try your lingerie on first to ensure it fits properly.

Many women say they will be self-conscious in anything they choose to wear. we need you to know that you are perfect, and it is our job to coach and find the model within you that we know is there!

Sometimes we get too busy with our lives, our family or our job and forget what it’s like to feel beautiful and strong along the way. This experience is for you to feel that way again... because you truly are perfect right now!

MUST HAVES: Shoes - the higher the better, accessories and thigh highs!

SUGGESTIONS: Matching bra and panty sets, bodysuits

NO NOs: Oversized shirts, dresses, robes, t-shirts

Are you a Bride? Or having a Wedding Anniversary?

Don't forget Bridal Lingerie, engagement ring, wedding jewelry, wedding shoes, GARTER and veil.

How do I prepare?

FIND INSPIRATION

Look up photos that you find sexy and share them when you arrive!

MAKEUP

Save a photo of a makeup style that you would like to recreate. Please, come with your face makeup free. Daily moisturizer is okay!

HAIR

Your hair must be clean and completely dry.  It is best to wash your hair the day before your boudoir session.

NAILS

Please, have your fingernails and toenails manicured!

NO SELF TANNER/SPRAY TANS

If you show up with a spray tan or self tanner you will be asked to reschedule your session. Via photoshop we can achieve your desired tan if you need a little boost. However, it is extremely difficult to photoshop tan lines PLUS it can be damaging to our sets.

WAXING/SHAVING

If you will be waxing or shaving, please do so at least 24-48 hours before your session so as to avoid any red marks or irritation.

ALLERGIES

Please notify us of any allergies or product sensitivities you may have.

HOW SHOULD I ARRIVE?

Do not wear any clothes with elastic or anything tight fitting.

We recommend going commando and bra free to avoid leaving any marks on your body. That includes hair bands, watches, or socks. A slip-on dress, loose shirt, or yoga pants are the best way to avoid any unwanted marks.

F.A.Q.

When should I schedule my session?

It is never too early to schedule your boudoir session, especially if you need your images by a certain date. We can accommodate last minute sessions but the absolute latest you should book your session is 2 weeks before you need your images. We book up quickly, so planning ahead is best!

Where does my session take place?

Our studio is located at 79 E MONTAUK HIGHWAY, LINDENHURST, NY 11757.

Who will take the photos at MY SESSION?

Alli Murphy is available on Monday's, Wednesday's and Thursday's for sessions during the day between 9am-4pm. A private session can be booked with her outside of these times for a non-refundable $250 session fee.

Our photographer in training, Katie Cassin, is available on Tuesday's from 1pm-8pm, Friday's from 10-6pm and Saturday's from 10-6pm.

How long will I be at the studio?

Makeup and hair usually takes 60 to 90 minutes. The photographic session usually takes 30 minutes to 1 hour. Plan to be here up to 3 hours.

Will you help me with posing?

The ladies that you see on our website are not models. They were all guided and posed. During your session, we will tell you exactly what to do, where to place your hands, where to look, and what to do. It may feel awkward at first but trust us, the results always come out looking amazing!

DO I HAVE TO BRING MY OWN OUTFITS AND PROPS?

Yes! You bring your own outfits.

Everyones vision of “sexy” is completely different. This is your chance to be creative with your outfits and prop choices. Have fun shopping in your own closet for your favorite pieces or hit the stores! Make sure your outfit selections reflect your theme, include variety, and are comfortable.

CAN I BRING a friend TO THE SHOOT?

Yes, however they will be asked to sit in the waiting area during the session. You will feel more free without an audience.

CAN I BRING MY BOYFRIEND OR HUSBAND TO THE SHOOT?

At this time no men are allowed on set unless you are doing a couples session. Alli is a female photographer, and there will be no one other than the two of you in the session.

When will I see my photos?

7 to 10 days after your boudoir session, you will come in for your viewing and ordering session. At that time you will see all of your images lightly edited and choose the images/products you want to purchase.

Depending on the products you have purchased we will go over your order together for any additional edits that need to be made and you will see a proof of the item before it goes out to be created and delivered to you. A week to two weeks later your gorgeous purchases will arrive for you to pick up.

MY PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT DO YOU POST EVERY PICTURE?

Your photos will be kept completely private unless you give consent to release them. After your viewing and ordering session you will have the option to be featured on our blog and in our marketing materials if you so desire. Every client signs a model release and chooses how much they’re comfortable sharing.

WHAT IS THE ETIQUETTE FOR TIPPING?

Our hair and makeup staff work diligently to ensure a relaxing glam experience, so while gratuity is not required, it is appreciated!
