What is a boudoir photo shoot?
A super fun and empowering Victoria’s Secret style photo shoot for the everyday woman! Our fully furnished studio and 100% female staff will help you feel confident and look gorgeous.

I’m super nervous - I’ve never done anything like this before! 
Of course you're nervous!  Doing something out of your comfort zone is always a bit nerve-wracking - but that's part of the fun of a boudoir photo shoot! We'll be with you every step of the way. 

Where is the studio located?
We are in the heart of Winnetka’s downtown shopping district at 896 Green Bay Road, Suite 12, Winnetka IL 60093.

When will I get to see my photos?
Right after your shoot - before you leave the studio!

Will you retouch my acne/ wrinkles/ cellulite?
YES! All of your images will be fully retouched. Check out examples of our retouching HERE.

Will you post my images online?
No. We take your privacy very seriously!

I’m a curvy girl - can you still make me look good?
YES! We specialize in creating gorgeous boudoir portraits of every woman. Check out our gallery for examples.

How far in advance should I schedule my shoot?
Because we specialize in boudoir, our calendar fills up quickly - especially during wedding season.  We recommend coming in for your shoot 6-8 weeks before you need your album.  If you're in a rush, give us a call and we'll do our best to get you on the calendar!

What do I need to bring to my shoot? What about waxing, tanning, nails? Can I bring my boyfriend’s football jersey?
Plan to bring your own wardrobe to your shoot. We also have items and props available at the studio to accessorize your outfits. We’ll send you a detailed prep guide before your shoot with everything you’ll need to know about getting ready.
