"All women ought to feel beautiful, desirable, and confident!"
What do I get?
Boudoir is not a trend or a fad, it’s a movement!
Have you ever had one of those days were you look in the mirror and go "damn, I look good!"? That’s what’s going to happen every time you open your album to admire your collection of photos! That huge boost in self confidence is available to you anytime you want.
The extra 5 - 10 lbs? Well, they're just not there! You won’t find them in your photos. You will simply look and feel sexier than you have in a long long time, or maybe ever!
BUT there’s a most incredible side effect to this experience. Often, women will realize their potential. Their secret powers. Their true worth.
It gives them power to LIVE. To go after what they want in life. To get out of a bad relationship, to apply for new jobs, to travel, to fall in love… The possibilities are endless.
This is not just a photo shoot. It’s a life experience!
In't its time for you to except how beautiful you really are? - Let us reveal your full potential!

4) Have a blast at your very own Boudoir Experience!
It's a movement of empowerment and sexuality. Boudoir empowers you to take sexuality back and own it, without anyone else imposing their views on you. Done on your own terms, boudoir allows you to accept your sexuality, and express it. Through our Boudoir sessions, you are allowed to say "Yes, I like sex, just as much or more than anyone else, I’m not ashamed about it, and I’m comfortable with my body." Your sexuality is yours, no matter if you're tiny or tall, skinny or chubby, straight, gay, bi or trans (or prefer no label at all). There are no biases with us. We just want to help you capture that sexuality, that power you have, in a safe environment, and LOOK AMAZING!
Boudoir is a gift for YOU!
Even the most shy women gain confidence through my lens. We'll reveal the beauty you have inside and out, and how sexy you really are. My goal is to photograph you in such a way that you actually feel sexier and more beautiful than you have ever felt before. Capturing images of it is just the bonus... to help you remember the moments. You may be shy, or have a few extra pounds, or just have no idea just how sexy you can look- and that's where we come in! YOU'LL LOOK INCREDIBLE! (I promise) True, it's an amazing gift for your partner, But first, I want it to be an amazing gift for yourself! Chances are, you'll never see yourself in the same way again!
Tell me more...
Honestly, you'll have a blast! We want this to be not only a wonderful experience for you, but also for you to get an amazing collection of photographs that you'll treasure forever. Photographs that remind you of your own personal 'true' beauty. 99% of our clients end up with a beautiful coffee table book of photographs personally designed by Michael, but it's up to you!
Your session starts with professionally applied makeup. We don't charge for it- it's simply available if you want it, or even just for touchups while you're in front of the camera. Clients say this pampering makeup time is a wonderful way to relax before the session. Once your makeup is done, the fun begins! Sessions generally take about 2 - 3 hours from start to finish. So, it's never rushed!
Where is my session photographed?
My goal is to create every session from scratch. Using your outfits, and yes, even your home or a location that is different from each of my previous sessions will make this unique to you. You see, I no longer shoot in a studio. It became way to monotonous and dull, and it said nothing about our clients other than pretty photos. All the sets and props were the same in every shoot. The photos were all good and the clients were happy. But, I feel the personal, individual touch was not there. Personalizing your session will make it unique to you!
Is there a guarantee?
YES, we do! Unlike most studios, we do not charge a session fee. So, there's NEVER a risk. We'll make sure your thrilled, or you won't want to own them. We know that if you love your photos, you'll want to purchase them. When you do make a purchase, if for any reason you are not completely thrilled with your finished photographs, your money will be returned with no questions asked. No kidding!

"My entire life I was interested in trying a boudoir session, but I was afraid to end up with unpleasant photographs, until I met Mike and his wife Jojo. They made me feel safe and free in an intimate and personal environment...I laughed, flirted and engaged with a side of myself that I thought was lost. They gave me confidence that came with a wonderful make up & I enjoyed every second of it and the pictures have the right amount of sensuality and mystery that I did not know existed in me. Thank you Mike and Jojo!"
