You’ve reached a major milestone in your life.
Maybe you have lost some weight, ran your first marathon, finalized your divorce, recently graduated from school, or maybe received an amazing job promotion. Any milestone you’ve achieved is a great reason to celebrate and capture you in the here and now with some beautiful photographs.
Good Monday to you all, this is Amy.
One of our favorite things about working at Seattle Boudoir is hearing stories about how a partner has reacted when viewing a client’s boudoir photos. This story is up there for the best response ever!
As a bit of a back story; Mr. L attended Ms. L’s session and preview meeting and was a part of choosing their favorite photos, therefore, he knew exactly which photos were ordered. Once Ms. L’s photos were completed, we reached out to her to schedule a time when they could both come by the studio to pick up her amazing photos. The twist… Mr. L was out of town and had to wait to see Ms. L’s photos! Ms. L decided to have some fun and created the best surprise ever…
A Boudoir photo scavenger hunt!
That’s right! How awesome of an idea is that? Don’t take my words for it. This is what Mr. L had to say about the experience:
Not sure if Ms. L told you the whole story but I was in Vegas for work when she picked the photos up. The suspense was killing me and her phone photos weren’t helping at all! Sunday I rode from San Francisco to Seattle on my motorcycle in the rain. I got home at 9PM at night and was exhausted to say the least. I went upstairs and found the first photo on my bed. The next 30 to 45 minutes were spent looking through my room, the closet, bathroom cabinets and spare bedroom. Each one I found made me grin like a kid on Christmas morning. I found them all but one and was going crazy looking for it. I checked the spare bedroom again and finally success!! It was by far the best scavenger hunt in my life. I love the photos and can’t say enough about the great experience we had.
Thanks again and I can’t wait for the next one!!!!”
Talk about an amazing surprise! I do believe Ms. L won the girlfriend of the year award! We just have to share some of her wonderful photos with the world to show what Mr. L was searching for around his home!
Thank you so much Mr. and Ms. L! It’s been a delight working with you both. We can’t wait to get you both back in the studio for the couples session you’ve been talking about!

Let me clue you in to what I’m blabbering about.
We just recently threw a client appreciation party and if you wanted to be in our drawing for raffle prizes you had to donate a bra.
So, now what happens with the bras?
We box them up and send them off to the bra recyclers! http://www.brarecycling.com/
From there women all over the world that are in need of this key item of clothing can request though the website or shelter. We all know how naked we’d feel without our “over the shoulder boulder holder”, and this is our chance to help out. Not to mention how much fun it is to collect all of them from our AWESOME clients. This time around we collected more than we EVER had! That number is 55! That’s a lot of happy “ladies”.
Thanks again to our generous clients.

# 10 – A Gift
Everyone loves gifts! It could be for your significant other’s birthday, your upcoming anniversary, or a gift for the holiday season. Also, don’t forget about Valentine’s Day! You know your partner loves you, so what could be a better gift than some beautiful photographs of you that they can look at whenever they want! As one of our clients once said, it’s the gift that keeps giving!
I just got around to reading this New York Post article by Jane Ridley on the latest trend in girl power – group boudoir sessions. You can read the whole article here.
While the NY Post might think of these as a trend, we have been doing parties, something that we call our Boudoir Soirees ever since we first started, five years ago. These events are truly unforgettable, no matter if its bachelorette party, a birthday celebration, celebrating a new stage in your life or just a girls night out they are a whole lot of fun. As we say, it might not be Vegas, but what happens here stays here!
The way these work, is much like our regular sessions, each guest gets their own professional makeup application & hairstyling along with wardrobe styling and on set direction. We personalize each photography session so each guest has sets and outfits that are perfect for them. And at the end of the day we like to plan a group photograph to memorialize the day!
If you are interested in one of our boudoir parties, go to our site and get more details and get in touch.
Ms. G scheduled her boudoir session for her lovely fiancé as an anniversary gift and as a groom’s gift all at the same time! It was a fabulous experience, a boost in confidence, and her wonderful fiancé received some beautiful imagery for their special day. Ms. G started her shoot with her man’s shirt on over a little black top, paired with some sassy black panties, a grader belt, some stockings, and cute shoes.
If you didn’t notice in the first set of photographs, her makeup artist styled her to have a bold eye liner, which make her eyes pop! And her hair! The waves look amazing on her. In Ms. G’s second outfit she opted for more of a girl next door look. She paired an adorable shirt which we knotted to show off more of her figure. Her shoes add an amazing pop of color to her photos!
The light is more dramatic to put the focus much more on Ms. G. for her last outfit. The red chair frames her perfectly as we are drawn to her beautiful eyes and then down to her sensual outfit. The bow on her top matches the bow on her panty perfectly!
Ms. G was able to take a mix of her photographs and create an amazing calendar to give to her man. We’re sure her gift was a great success!
The sassy Ms. W. visited our Seattle studio to create a lovely anniversary gift for her husband, but was really excited to have the experience be all about her. Having never done a boudoir session before, Ms. W. came into our studio prior to her photography session to have a consultation. During her consultation Ms. W. got a chance to chat with her onset stylist, the wonderful Kim, and go over the different outfit, theme, and overall style of her session.
When Ms. W. came in for her photography session the wonderful team at Milagros SpaSalon styled her makeup and hair to perfection. Her eyes just popped and her hair looked fabulous in all of the different sets used during her session. Her black outfit paired with pair of stockings and garters looked amazing on her!
Ms. W’s final outfit was minimal but looked great on her body. Her nude panty paired with a fabulous pair of heels is all that was needed to flaunt her body. The pop of color from her heels added such a nice contrast from her barely visible panty.
Ms. W. absolutely enjoyed her time here with us at the studio. Needless to say, her husband definitely enjoyed his surprise anniversary gift!
Hey there everyone! Kim here from Seattle Boudoir Photography!
I wanted to give you gals (and guys of course) a little look inside the photography studio on shoot days and see all of the fun and shenanigans that occurs. If you’ve never been in for a session and are worried about your nerves, I guarantee we will have you laughing in no time. You will be worry free within minutes of walking into the studio. That I promise!
With that said I thought I’d share some blooper images of our team from the studio. Some of these photos are from lighting testing that we’ve done, but most are things that happen on set during a shoot day. I hope you’re ready for a good giggle!
Ms. K scheduled a session with our boudoir studio to create a wonderful gift for her husband for their upcoming anniversary as well to celebrate her upcoming birthday. It was a double gift; an amazing experience for her and her husband got some pretty awesome pictures to boot! Ms. K created a sweet and romantic feel to the first part of her session. We adored her black teddy paired with a matching black lingerie set. Her necklace complimented her outfit perfectly. Since the majority of this outfit was shot on the bed, shoes were not a necessity. Don’t think we’d let her get away without some stockings!
The 2nd outfit Ms. K adorned combined her cowboy boots with her husband’s banjo. What a perfect prop to bring along to personalize her photographs! We of course had to add peanut shells on the floor to complete the look! She looks so sassy and fun in all of these photos. Ms. K took the image of her headshot and sent photos to her parents too! It goes to show that just because you’re having a boudoir session doesn’t limit the people in your life whom you can create a gift.
We had a great time working with Ms. K. We’ve suggested that Mr. K comes in with Ms. K for a couples shoot. How much fun would it be to see him playing his banjo in their couple’s session! Ms. K is an absolute doll and we love chatting with her whenever we get the chance.
We had an absolute blast working with Ms. L! Her fun and outgoing personality shined in her photos. Ms. L had a boudoir session with us so she could create a great gift for her traveling hubby. Ms. L’s husband is in the armed forces and is called out on a minutes notice to travel. She wanted to give him some photos that he could take with, so he could always be reminded of how much she loves him. They are both huge sports fanatics, so Ms. L was sure to include some photos of her in a t-shirt featuring his favorite baseball team.
Ms. L showed off her flirty personality in her cute lingerie set and flowery robe. We of course had to include a fun photograph highlighting her favorite animal… the flamingo!
Ms. L brought her hubby in for a surprise preview meeting. We pretended that she had never been to the studio before. Once it was time to view an “informational video” about our studio Mr. L realized the surprise… the video was all of the photos from his wife’s session! Needless to say he enjoyed the surprise! We can’t wait to have Ms. L back into the studio… perhaps this time with Mr. L? Time will only tell!
Ms. Z ‘s photos show that you can look amazing AND have fun during your boudoir session! Ms. Z decided to have a photography session in our Seattle studio because she resolved it was time to something for herself. A single mother who works full time taking care of others, Ms. Z decided now was the time to treat herself. Her white bra and panty set looked beautiful on her. We loved that she brought in bubbles to use as a prop… so much fun!
Ms. Z’s pink outfit is amazing. It showed off her body exquisitely. The different angles she posed during her session in the pink outfit highlighted Ms. Z very well.
The piece de resistance… her swim suit and scuba gear! We had a blast creating some sensual and fun photos for her in this outfit. It’s not often we get to have clients strike a pose in our tub and we loved that Ms. Z gave us the opportunity to do some photos lounging in the tub, flippers and all!
Ms. Z created a stunning calendar with the mix of photos she chose. We hope Ms. Z comes back to see us soon! Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to have her teach us how to scuba dive!
Ms. N contacted our studio in Seattle to have a session with us for two reasons. First, she wanted to create an unforgettable gift for her husband for their 10 year wedding anniversary. The second reason Ms. N contacted us is because having a boudoir session is something that has been on her bucket list!
Ms. N may have originally chosen our studio as a way to mark something off of her bucket list, but she quickly found, a boudoir session with us is all about the experience. She was pampered by all of our staff and our salon. The amazing hair and makeup artists at Milagros SalonSpa made her look glamorous. The outfits she brought in for her session were fantastic! Kim, our onset stylist for our sessions, was excited to see that Ms. N brought in one of Kim’s favorite outfit pieces… a ruffled pair of undies! Needless to say, they looked amazing on Ms. N!
Ms. N also brought in a fabulous leather jacket which she paired with her brightly colored lingerie set, a pair of stocking, and stellar heels (something Ms. N does not leave the house without!).
We also did a “White Out” set with Ms. N. This simple scene permitted Ms. N to be highlighted in a romantic and elegant way.
We’re very happy Ms. N chose our studio because we have a great time with her. We also know that her husband LOVED the gift he received on their anniversary date, but who wouldn’t? Ms. N is one gorgeous lady!
Ms. T had a session with our studio with the aim of finding her inner beauty once again. With a mix of amazing outfits paired with her bright, bubbly, and outgoing personality, Ms. T’s beauty certainly shined! Ms. T’s favorite attribute, her eyes, are absolutely stunning. The shade of her eye shadow paired with the variety of her outfit colors made her eyes pop! Ms. T’s red corset is gorgeous. The dramatic lighting combined with the black backdrop gave Ms. T a chance to show off her sassy side.Special thanks to Milagros Salon Spa for the fabulous job they did on Ms. T’s hair and makeup!
The teal corset (her personal favorite) is absolutely beautiful. We love that it could be worn with or without straps! And her shoes! Not only are they adorable, they highlight the tattoos on her feet perfectly. Although initially nervous about her session, Ms. T let loose and had a great time. When she came in to view her photos she was blown away. The album she created was outstanding. She loved her photos so much she came back in and ordered a wall piece to display in her bedroom.
We adore Ms. T and hope we get to see her again!
Ms. O moved from the East Coast to Seattle and we are so glad she did! She visited our studio so that she could surprise her hubby-to-be with an album full of photographs of her gorgeous self. Ms. O was a bit nervous about her shoot, but after reading all of the inspiring stories from other ladies online she was raring to go! A kind and passionate person, Ms. O let loose during her session and showed us her fun side! She was dancing, singing, and making jokes with our onset stylist, Kim, during the entire session. It was so much fun!
Ms. O brought a beautiful array of clothes for her session which highlighted her personality perfectly. From completely covered and adorable to nothing more than her red apron and a watermelon, Ms O. had a variety of styles within one session. The images of her wearing her favorite pair of jeans along with her man’s jacket surely lets you know that you don’t need to show a lot of skin to have an amazing boudoir session. Ms. O was cheeky enough to show off a bit more, but those photos are solely for her and her hubby-to-be!
Ms. O has since given her album to her man. She has told us that he was absolutely thrilled to receive the album and can’t wait to view more of her gorgeous photos. We are excited to spend more time with Ms. O., whether it is catching up over a plate of oysters or maybe another session!
Special thanks to Milagros Salon Spa for the fabulous job they did on Ms. O’s hair and makeup!
