Our favorite part about boudoir photography is the way it can transform. Women come in expecting to like a couple photos – if they're lucky. When they walk out of their session feeling like they can take on the world (spoiler alert: they totally can) it's an amazing thing to witness.
Our inner critics constantly tell us to play small, that we're not enough. The push for perfection in all things is exhausting. We alone hold the key to freeing ourselves from this pressure. And it's not by losing 15 pounds or buying better clothes or getting a better job. It's all in our head. Opening our minds to the idea that we – our lives – are imperfectly perfect.
This is why boudoir photography is so much more than a job to us. We believe a boudoir photoshoot can change lives. As women, we bear the scars of this world while the constant pressure to look fit and youthful keeps us wrapped in shame. Our bodies are strong and amazing vehicles that have taken us on all our adventures, housed and fed our children, and kept us moving forward. Yet, we learn to fear and loathe them.
Our identities are often subconsciously tied to our appearance. Gain a little weight, bear a child, suffer an injury and suddenly you’re relearning how you fit into the world. Losing connection with your body and your sense of self can keep you trapped in a cage of fear and doubt.
Boudoir is an avenue to redefine your relationship with your body and to recapture your confidence. It takes you out of your head and allows you to see the beauty those that love you see in you. If you’re hesitating because you’re waiting to lose ten pounds or feeling deflated, stop waiting and start living today.
We'd love to see you soon for a boudoir session of your very own.
"Put your apprehensions aside and venture outside your normal box. I thought about it for a very long time before deciding to do it and afterwards I was so proud of myself and found a new appreciation and self-love for myself and my body. I'm 57 years old and always put myself down, but after my photo shoot and reveal, I have a new sense of pride."

"My experience with Tanya was wonderful. She made me feel so comfortable and sexy. She has a great eye for getting you just the right pose in just the right lighting. It was such a chore having to look at all those beautiful and sexy pictures over and over. I’m kidding of course. 😀😀🤗🤗.
Regardless of body type, ATB will make you feel your sexiest. It is the best thing you can do to boost your confidence."
