Boudoir with Mary "Be your own kind of beautiful"

Artist - Marylie Labonne Thompson

Hello beautiful, I'm Marylie Labonne Thompson, a Dallas based Intimate, Boudoir Photographer. I am a mom of three, happily married to the sexiest man on earth. I am French Canadian, and yes, I speak French. I reside in Texas, and although I'm not a fan of the heat... I do love me some Texas.

If you're reading this, you have probably seen my work before, but just in case you haven't, I would highly recommend that you visit my website. www.boudoirwithmary.com. There, you will see my style, and hopefully notice how in love I am with my job. Capturing women is what I love to do. My style is very simple... elegant, and daring. I love digging deep, and finding your inner sexiness and bringing it out of you.

My Philosphy

  • A boudoir session is for Everyone and for Every Body!
  • It's a confidence boost for sure.
  • You don't have to do this for a man. You can do this for yourself.
  • It's okay to treat yourself to a day of beauty!
My style

My shoots are fun, very chill, and always professional. I have wine, snacks, and music to make you feel comfortable. My goal is to make sure that you are feeling confident. You are sexy, you are beautiful, and I will get you to find that inner daring woman that might be hiding inside of you. I love empowering women.

What to expect...

What to Expect...

This is always the million dollar question. What to Expect?? Well... here it goes. Expect to have some fun, let loose, and maybe drink a little? I am very soft spoken, and will direct you every step of the way. Feeling nervous is natural, but I will help you channel that nervous energy and make you feel like the woman you deserve to be. Before your session, please feel free to ask me ANY and ALL questions you have running through your head. I am here for you. I work for you. Therefore, anything on your mind, is OKAY to ask.

Too glam to give a damn

What to Wear...

Etiquette

One of the most asked questions is What to Wear?... Yes, it might be stressful to try and figuring what to wear. First... look into your closet. Oversized sweatshirts/sweaters, tank tops, anything with lace, knee socks, cute boy underwear, his favorite t-shirt, any lingerie you may already have. Also... feel free to go shopping and treat yourself to a couple cute, sexy outfits. Victoria's Secret's is a great option, and I'm sure you can also find some pretty cute stuff online as well. Here's a tip... LACE, lace, lace. Lace turns out soooo good in photos. Any color. It's just a beautiful, feminine fabric, that photographs really well.

Where will the session take place?

Location

The session takes place either in your home, a friends home or hotel. If you decide to shoot at your home/friend's home, please get rid of all clutter on the nightstands. I like them to be bare... so all the stuff, lamps, radios, etc... need to be gone. I also need to make sure that there is enough natural light coming in. So windows are important. I do not use a flash. If shooting at a hotel, I can certainly make several recommendations. Always make sure there is a window in the room, with good natural light coming in. *Room is at your cost.

The Boudoir Day

Makeup

Ha! Today is the day! Here are a few pointers. Make sure you come in with your hair done. I do provide a makeup artist, but not hair. If you have long hair, loose curls are always awesome. When you arrived, my makeup artist will consult with you about the look that you are going for. Please remember that darker eyes, always come out better in photos. I am a fan of the smokey eye! You can bring a friend... yes, you can... but only females, no boys allowed. Wear something comfy as you will be sitting in the makeup chair for about one hour. Make sure you have ironed all your clothes that may need it, and bring heels. Heels are always great.

Before & After

After your Session

You can never be too glamorous

After your session... well, let me just say... you will be stoked when leaving me. You will feel so good about yourself, your life, and all that is around you. You will be so excited to see a sneak peek! Which I tend to do as soon as I get home, or the next day. I will cull through all of your photos, and pick the VERY best ones. Once they are selected, I will then do a fine art edit on every photo. What does that mean? It means that I will overlook each of the images. Color correct anything if need be. Per your request, take off wrinkles, stretch marks, etc... I try to keep all my edits extremely natural. Please don't ask me to make you a size 0. It's not possible, unless you pay me $1000 per hour :)

How will I receive my Photos?

Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself

You will receive your photos on a USB drive. With ALL your best photos. The USB is square and cute, and has my logo on it. You can then take the usb and print anywhere that you wish. I also offer elegant albums, and I highly recommend them. My turn around is fast... NO, I do not rush through the editing process, but I am very organized, and dedicated. Therefore your photos are a priority for me. Typically, clients receive their photos within two weeks of shooting.

Imperfection is beauty

Investment

Although a Boudoir with Mary experience is truly priceless.... Oh, and so much fun, and liberating...it does in fact have a price.

The Boudoir session fee is $650 and includes the boudoir shoot with yours truly, professional makeup application with lashes, fine art image editing, the digital files with unlimited printing, and a sudden boost of self-esteem.

Session and Package fees are broken down into 2 payments...$100 down to reserve your experience, and the remaining due at the time of your photo session. Payments accepted include cash, check, or paypal.

Once in a while, blow your damn mind
