XO, Yours Truly Boudoir by melissa

Hello Gorgeous!

I'm so excited that you're interested in a boudoir portrait session!

In this guide, I hope to answer any and all questions you have. If for some reason your question is not answered, please feel free to reach out to me so we can discuss it!


- About Me -

Before we get to know you, let me tell you a little bit about myself! My name is Melissa, and I am the artist behind the lens!

In my every day life, I'm a busy mom to the two most wonderful children on the planet. They are my world! Together, we like to have pillow fights and dance parties, build legos and watch movies. In my free time, I enjoy (lots of) coffee, great food with great friends, and if I'm not out photographing someone or something, you'll find me reading, sewing or crafting, and quite possibly coloring with my daughter! Call me a nerd, but creativity in any form is what makes me who I am, and I love it!


My Why...

I have always loved photography since I took a course for it in high school, but it developed into my career when I got my first camera after my daughter was born. I am self taught and just love what I do. Boudoir quickly became my passion after I shot my very first one. I knew right then that this is what I wanted to do with my creative talent. I love how I can make women feel beautiful and powerful by showing them just how amazing they are!

So, with that said, during your session, I want you to be yourself!

You will never hear "look sexy".

I guide you through every pose and step that we do. Take a deep breath and relax, because boudoir is you. It does not judge. There are no boundaries. It is for every woman who has ever lived. Boudoir is fun! During your session, we smile, laugh, tell jokes and stories. I love getting to know the women I work with. Boudoir is intimate. I have never, ever, met a woman who was not nervous. So you are not alone in that. I make sure that by the end of your session you realize that you have had a fierce, brave, and strong woman hiding inside you all along. There is no shame in boudoir. There is no shame in loving yourself and your photos. Boudoir is an experience. An experience that every woman should know.

Frequently asked questions


What is Boudoir Photography? Boudoir Photography is all about empowering, and loving yourself! Stripping yourself, literally ;), of all your insecurities, and allowing yourself to be sexy in a world that tells you not to.

"Im not pretty enough", "I'm too fat", "I've never done anything like this before" Are you sure I can do something like this? Ladies!! Like I said before these sessions are all about LOVING yourself. You are ENOUGH, I promise you that. Let me show you how beautiful you are, how gorgeous your body is and how amazing you truly are!! Boudoir does not have a specific size or look, it is for every woman!

How long does it take to get my images back? It takes around 3-7 days to receive your images back, depending on when you schedule your reveal! Products do take an additional 2 weeks to come in so we recommend you have your session 4 weeks from when you need them so you have ample time to choose and order products.

I cant pose, do you help with that? Of course! I pose you from the tips of your toes to the way your hair lays. I will do all the hard work for you! You do not have to worry about a thing!

Do I have to get naked? OF COURSE NOT! I will never push you to take off a layer you do not want to. If you want to wear a sweater, and shorts... I am all for it! I can make anything look sexy, and sometimes more is less. Gives a little mystery!

Do I supply my outfits, and what do I wear?! We've got you covered! After you book a session we send you over a complete lingerie guide to help shop for the perfect items to match your body type, but it is just a guide, you have free reign, be as creative as you like! You will also have access to our ever growing lingerie closet! It has over 130 pieces from sizes S-1X! We request you bring at least 2 of your own outfits though in case you don't like what we have to offer!

Do my images have to be shared on social media, and your website? Nope! While most of my clients are so proud of their images, and want them shared all over, we do NOT require you to do so! These are your images, and its all about your comfort, and privacy. Your images will be kept completely confidential if you request that.



The sitting fee for your session is 200 and product packages begin at 349. Typically, clients invest between 550 and 1250 in themselves for their sessions. Payment plans are available for all products ordered.
