Why Boudoir?

GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO CELEBRATE YOU…

Some people think ‘Boudoir Photos’ as strictly intimate photos of you in lingerie and strictly in your bedroom. Others believe of themselves that they are not the ‘type’ for boudoir.

Being and feeling sexy does NOT relegate itself to the bedroom, it does not mean one certain outfit - nor one kind of body type!

Sexy is a state of mind. How you bring it and where you bring it, we’re more than happy to plan with you to realize your unique vision for your sexy as hell photos.
The rest, leave up to us. Our experience in posing means you won’t have to wait for that ‘perfect time’ or ‘perfect number on the scale.’
We see you’re PERFECT right now, right WHO and WHERE you are. And the faster you see and celebrate yourself JUST as you are, the happier, more confident, and more empowered you will be!
LET'S TALK

I AM NOT A MODEL!
HOW CAN I EVER HOPE TO LOOK LIKE THESE WOMEN YOU SHOW?
NO models here. ALL the women I photograph are REAL WOMEN, real smiles, real curves, expertly posed from head to toe. It’s also been said, my professional hair and makeup person works MAGIC!

WHERE WILL YOU TAKE THE PHOTOS?
Most often, clients hire me to take photos in their own home or in my Stockton studio. Both locations have the most privacy and allow us to capture the most creative images. Should you prefer, I can recommend beautiful hotels or AirBNB’s for you to rent where we can have our photoshoot (fabulous idea/perk: get glammed up for the photoshoot, pampered during the shoot, then use the hotel with your honey or a group of girlfriends for a glorious getaway).
Boudoir
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
During our consultation, we will discuss what makes YOU feel confident wearing, and what you are comfortable to take photos in. We will go over your existing wardrobe, and see if you already have in your own closet things that would be amazing for your photos. If not, I will send you a list of trusted lingerie boutique links (including Amazon) - in your specified style and budget for items that will photograph well for your skin tone, body type, etc.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
WE SURE DO! A Boudoir Session with Amy May Photography is a luxury experience that every woman deserves to have. For that reason, I want your investment to be as stress free and manageable as possible. I offer pre-session payment plans as a financing option for your session! With the pre-session payment plans, you will pick out your desired Collection ahead of time and I will break up your investment into either weekly, bi-weekly or Monthly installments leading up to your session. On session day, your Collection will already be taken care of and you will have one less think to think about.

WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP MY IMAGES?
OF COURSE! Photoshop is our best friend, and the reason why the photos you see here have a polished and editorial/cinematic sort of look.
With that said, do know that I want women to see themselves as the most beautiful version of themselves AS THEY ARE in the moment - and so as a rule I do NOT edit anything more than remove blemishes and distractions (anything that you would not have on your skin in a couple of weeks).
In regards to cellulite (which just about EVERY woman has, meself included) - issues are taken care of with expert posing and correct lighting and if still needed, a bit more skin smoothing.
Boudoir
IS HAIR AND MAKEUP PROVIDED?
Professional hair and makeup is always included in the Session Fee! I will ask that you arrive to the shoot location with a clean, moisturized face and clean, dry hair so that we can get right to work. MY professional hair and makeup person is fabulous, and has been work in getting women glammed up for magazines for a long time. Let the transformation begin!

You’ve been criticizing yourself for years. It’s time to love yourself and see what happens…

YOU’RE WORTH IT RIGHT NOW!

I need to lose 10 pounds
