WHAT WE DO
Hey there! My name is Allison and I'm a professional boudoir photographer in Los Angeles, also servicing Las Vegas and San Diego.
I photograph women - mothers, sisters, wives, friends, professionals, students, and homemakers. The birth of my son, which took place in my home, radically changed my perception of ALL women. We are so incredibly powerful, though so many of us become separated from that truth.
I feel in my soul that the work I do with my clients is important. I care about people, and I care about how people are affected by society. We are bombarded all day with messages about how we are, and how we should be different. The women who I work with are able to reclaim their bodies, sexuality and sensuality, and reconnect with what they possess and embody- seeing THAT process is worth everything to me.
"I'm so awkward in front of the camera! How will I know what to do?"
I have a fabulous posing system and will walk you through literally every pose, including what to do with your hands, feet, facial expression, and even where to look. Your job is to show up, be pampered, and have fun! _ "Do I have to do my own hair and makeup?" Nope! I have a fabulous hair and makeup artist who will do yours at the studio directly before the shoot, unless it is more convenient that you work with your personal HMUA before. _
"What about Retouching?"
Some photographers do a ton of retouching to the point that the client is unrecognizable, and some have a particular degree to which they will retouch, or certain elements they will or will not alter. Retouching for me is personal. Some days I wear makeup, and sometimes I don't, and whether or not I am wearing it has nothing to do with how I feel about myself, and it's really not anyone's business what I do with my makeup! I feel the same when it comes to photography. These photos are for you, and you deserve to have your photos done in the aesthetic you like. While I will not alter beyond recognition, I am totally open to discussing what you have in mind. Whether you're looking for a totally raw image, or completely professionally retouched, that is your decision and we will figure out together what works best for you.
"I'd really like to tone up and be working out before booking my session"
I can totally appreciate this! Being in a consistent workout routine feels amazing! I can also say with certainty that lighting and posing like I do for my boudoir shoots will change your photos more than working out for 3 months will do. I definitely encourage the workouts because they are just good for the body overall, don't get me wrong! But don't let it hold you back from doing a shoot that you want to do. Furthermore, I have seen again and again women who did't wait to spend that time at the gym, and they were so incredibly happy they didn't because choosing to honor yourself where you are is the most powerful choice you can make.
Love deals! We run promos sometimes but they're short term (on month or time framed), these deals are constant that they're offering.
