A few weeks ago I booked a stagette boudoir party on my birthday. On purpose. Because I swear to you, I will never work harder while simultaneously having the time of my life! I’ve shot quite a few stagettes over the past few years, and a good many of them weren’t okay with me using

CTV News On Your Street – Ben’s Dudoir

When I began doing boudoir and dudoir photography about 5 years ago, it was really special.

Sexy And I Know It

Every time a gentleman calls me about getting a dudoir session, I get excited! I love it when guys are looking to use dudoir to help them regain self-confidence. Graeme, not his real name of course, had just gone through some really tough times, and wanted to do dudoir in part to help him feel

Blonde Bombshell

A great example of how a person doesn’t need lingere to take amazing boudoir photos, I had a fabulous time with this down-to-earth woman. Her choices of a tight t-shirt and an open blouse, some camouflage and zebra print underwear with killer black pumps, and tasteful nudes made her a gorgeous package of images. Allison
