Our past clients have loved our professional approach

What you do is pure magic! Thank you SO much for the most beautiful photographs. With all the mishaps that happened behind the screen, from the maternity shoot to the newborn photos (what can go wrong, did go wrong) you truly made us feel so comfortable and stress free. Talent and patience – hand in hand, is truly your gift… among other things haha. I hope we can work together again sooner than later.

Not to brag, but the photos from our session with Zeynep are AMAZING! Did a pre-wedding shoot and everyone in my family was blown away by how fantastic everything turned out.

The studio is adorable and comfortable, photographer is detail-oriented and patient. We’re so happy with the prints and I can’t wait to go back for a boudoir shoot asap!

    Why should I have a boudoir photo shoot? 

    You don’t need a specific reason to treat yourself to a professional boudoir photography session. As women, we undergo many life changes, be it marriages, having kids, divorces, and through it all we can lose ourselves and our own identities. A boudoir photo session can be an immensely empowering experience, allowing you to treat yourself to a celebration of everything that you are.

    You may want to get your boudoir pictures taken to surprise your significant other for an anniversary, birthday, or Valentine’s Day. Many women also book a bridal boudoir shoot. Finally, you can just do it for yourself, have well-deserved me-time, and remind yourself of your beauty and sensuality. Remember to make your boudoir shoot about yourself and yourself only, and take it from there.

    What should I wear for a boudoir-style photography session? 

    You have different outfit options depending on what you like and the reasons behind having a boudoir photo session.

    We include wardrobe access in our shoots, so you may take your pick from stunning lingerie pieces, corsets, fabrics, and props to make your photos special.

    What if I don’t know how to pose? 

    You don’t have to be a professional model to have a boudoir or maternity photo shoot.

    You’ll have one of the best maternity and boudoir photographers in San Diego guiding you through the session, suggesting poses, and helping you find the most flattering angles that showcase your unique beauty.

    What type of maternity photo shoots do you offer? 

    There are so many styles you can go for in your maternity shoot.

    You can have a fine art nude or semi-nude photo shoot depending on what you’re comfortable with. Also, take a look at our underwater, beach, park, and studio shoots to get some inspiration. Don’t hesitate to book a free consultation and ask our amazing maternity photographer for suggestions.

    When can I expect to get my maternity photos? 

    You’ll get your professional maternity pictures within 2 to 3 weeks.

    We’ll call you for a viewing either in person or via Zoom so that you can take a look at your photos. You can also pick your favorites and have us design a wall portrait for you.

    How can I prepare for my maternity or boudoir shoot? 

    We’ll take care of your makeup, hair, and wardrobe choices, so all you have to do before the session is relax.

    Make sure you get enough sleep and drink plenty of water to feel and look your best on shoot day. Don’t worry about preparing poses as our experienced photographer knows exactly what to do and will guide you every step of the way.

    How should I choose the best boudoir or maternity photographer for myself? 

    It can be difficult to find a reliable maternity or boudoir photographer in San Diego as you want to feel comfortable during such an intimate shoot and get the best possible photos.

    What you want to look for is:

    • Positive reviews and testimonials
    • Previous pictures so you know what to expect

    • Consultations to get answers to your questions and plan your shoot
