I'd like to take a moment to thank you for considering the purchase of this collection exclusive to Living Social subscribers.
Bella Boudoir is located at 1800 Central, Suite 201, in the Crossroads district of beautiful downtown Kansas City. Filled with glorious natural light, my sets consist of beautiful vintage pieces full of character and charm to add texture and visual interest to your portraits. Choose from the ever-expanding selection of accessories including vintage hats, furs, hair pieces, gloves and jewelry.
Packaged to pamper, each session begins with a brief styling consultation to review your wardrobe, accessories and collaborate with our beauty experts to create the perfect look to compliment your chosen wardrobe. You will be invited to sip complimentary champagne and share in our secret stash of premium chocolates while your hair and makeup artist prepares you for the camera.
Most sessions involve between 2-3 hours of shooting which allows plenty of time to unwind and feel comfortable. While you may be experiencing a blend of excitement and anxiety, please be assured that I will guide you through each pose, capturing you from angles that will best exemplify the beautiful woman you are and yield the intimate and seductive imagery that you can treasure for a lifetime.

Q: Who is the photographer?
A: I will personally be your photographer. I’m now almost 42 years young and a mother to three wonderful children. I also understand the blend of anxiety and excitement that accompanies the decision to give yourself this. In celebration of my 40th birthday I had my own boudoir portraits done. As a woman I can honestly say that the feeling of empowerment you gain when you rediscover your sensuality and beauty far outweighs any initial anxiety. Oh… and you will be pleased to know that I don’t bite…much.
Q: Is nudity required?
A: Audrey Hepburn once said, “There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.” I’m a firm believer that sexy isn't always about how much you show, it's all about how you show it. Nudity is certainly not necessary and I will not push you to go further than you feel comfortable with.
Q: What do I wear?
A: Due to hygienic reasons, I cannot supply your wardrobe. Upon scheduling your session you will receive my comprehensive session guide with recommendations on styling and preparing for your intimate portrait session.
Q: I have a problem area, is there something you can do?
A: Regardless of age or body type, I specialize in offering all women an incredible opportunity to commission their own personal collection of stunning, modern boudoir portraits. My advanced posing techniques are designed to emphasize the positives and disguise problem areas.
Q: I don’t know how to pose!
A: Relax, you won’t be expected to stand in the middle of the room and perform as I click away. Each pose is carefully constructed by example and by verbal direction. Sultry expressions are coaxed and nobody says ‘cheese’ for my camera. This is what I do, trust me when I say - I do it well.
Your privacy is held in the highest regard as I believe that the portraits we create are private by their very nature. Please be assured that I will not publish the images captured at your session for marketing or purposes of self-promotion. Your images will only been seen by those necessary to produce your ordered products.
Bella Boudoir exclusively utilizes the services of professional labs to safeguard the privacy and quality of your commissioned portraits.
