Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir made the list again for best maternity photographer in Las Vegas
Every year Expertise.com complies a list from different states and categories of the best local experts in their select field.
For the 6th straight year, Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir was selected as one of the Best Las Vegas Maternity Photographers.
It is awesome that since 2017 we have been appreciated as one on the best maternity photographers in Las Vegas. As we are primarily a boudoir photography studio, we incorporate that beauty and sexy look into our maternity portraits.
What sets us apart from most photographers is that we believe that less is more. This is a special time in you life so show off your body. Don't cover it with clothes or hide it behind a chalkboard sign with "coming soon" wrote on it, or drive an hour to stand on a snowy mountain. A maternity photo shoot should be about you, not being distracted by props or background scenery.
Thanks again to Expertise.com for naming us one of the thirteen best Las Vegas Maternity Photographers. Unfortunately, they do not have a boudoir photographer category listed yet. Hopefully soon they will.
The struggle of weight loss and an a lesson of self love
Recently we had the opportunity to photography Ruby who had an amazing story. It its an amazing story of the struggles of weight loss and self love. We are all about self love so we wanted to share this with you. Remember, you are beautiful, and love yourself. Enjoy!
Why is it important to love yourself?
If we want others to love us the way we want to be loved, we have to do that with inside. Someone once told me that whatever weight you're in, someone is dying to be that weight. And sometimes we forget that that other people have other struggles that we are blessed to have. If we do a better job at promoting internally it projects out into the world.
Tell us about yourself.
I've been on a weight loss journey for the last year and a half. I've lost a hundred and ten pounds I have really just been focused on regaining my self-confidence and my motivation and just really making myself a better person and portraying the image that I feel inside. I'm super shy. I know my personality enters the room before I do, but I 'm very shy and reserved and conservative people think because I'm so funny and outgoing that that means that like, I don't get nervous.
What's one thing people don't know about you?
I'm super shy. I know my personality enters the room before I do, but I 'm very shy and reserved and conservative people think because I'm so funny and outgoing that that means that like, I don't get nervous.
What weight loss challenges have you faced?
I think I've been struggling with making a change for years. I've been yo yo dieting probably my whole life. But if I can think back after I had my daughter in 2011, I was at my all time heaviest. Fast forward to 2014. Although she was three years old, I still was suffering with postpartum and depression and I decided to really put some effort and I lost eighty pounds at that time and I felt great and I felt amazing, but I kind of did it not the healthiest way so that I didn't sustain it. I gained it all back. So from 2014 to 2021, I put all the weight back and then some, and I just really got to a point where I wasn't confident or happy with myself any longer. Although I promoted self-love, I wasn't doing a good job for myself.
How did you feel about yourself prior to losing weight?
I think I've always tried to be stylish and. cute, although I would always hear, you know, you're pretty for a big girl.
I think that was one of my biggest pet peeve. I really wanted to focus on reframing that and be pretty for who I really felt that I was and really focus on my self-confidence.
Was it a challenge to bring out your sexy side?
It's always challenging to bring out my sexy side because I like to make weird on accident. Ultimately, more. I was more nervous about like the hair, the makeup, making sure I wore the right outfits because I still am not 100% where I want to be.
So I still have insecurities and flaws.
Why is self love important?
Self-love is important because as we expect others to love us, we need to love ourselves and focus on what we think about ourselves and how we feel about ourselves. Although I've loved myself at every size, I would have never done this a hundred pounds ago, so it felt nice to step outside of the box.
Why is its important to do something special for yourself?
It's important to do something special for yourself and more importantly, to take risks. Take yourself out of your comfort zone because you'll sometimes be really surprised with the outcome.
Were you nervous prior to your boudoir photo shoot?
Before this boudoir photoshoot, I actually was thinking of canceling it like three times. I think as I tell people to take risks and things like that, I need to take my own advice.
If we don't step outside of our comfort zone, we'll never do anything.
How did you feel after your boudoir photo shoot?
I just overall felt really comfortable and it was a great experience. It was also empowering when I saw what actually came out on the other side, the pictures look amazing.
How did you feel after viewing your portraits?
The pictures came out great. They superseded my expectations. It was really hard to narrow down which ones I want.
Should every woman experience a boudoir photo shoot?
Absolutely. Do it. Take a risk You'll be surprised how beautiful you really are.
You are worth it! Now is the time to love yourself. Click the button to experience a boudoir photo shoot with us!
Always had the desire to create an adult video but don’t know how to get started?
Our clients are everyday women and couples that not only live in Las Vegas, but come from all over the world to explore their sensual side, strengthen their bond, and experience something they have always wanted to do but didn’t know where to go or how to get started.
Intimate videos have become extremely popular with countless adult video and fan-sites online. Many couples and individuals want to make their own adult videos but miss the mark because all they have is a smart phone and a stack of books to prop it up on. Sometimes it works great and sometimes the phone slides down leaving you with a video of your ceiling instead of you and your partner. It happens.
You may want to have some beautiful photos of your spouse or significant other so pull out your trusty iPhone and have them lay on a bed and tell them to look sexy. Meanwhile, you don’t understand lighting, angles, or flattering poses and she keeps asking you if what she is doing looks sexy. You just hope your phone takes a great shot, and it won’t.
It’s ok. I have been there.
Unfortunately I did not have the luxury and discreetness of a smartphone. Growing up I wanted the same thing that you are seeking, some sexy photos of a girlfriend or wife and a sensual video of us together. Here is how it went for me many, many years ago. This is well before I learned photography.
For my photos I had to use a film camera. What is that you may ask? Google it. For those that do know, I would shoot a roll of what I thought were sexy photos only to find out a week later when I received my prints back that the majority of the photos looked horrible because the lighting was bad, weird stuff in the background, and she was in a crazy pose and looked confused.
For my videos I had to use a hi8 camcorder. Again, Google it. All I remember from my sexy home video was that one of us forgot to lock the bedroom door and it being an extremely awkward time having your kid walk in on you in the act asking whats going on and why that video camera was there, while we are scrambling for covers and clothes.
Needless to say, that was my first and last time making my own sexy home video.
Do yourself a favor. Learn from my mistakes.
First, just because your phone takes photos and video, that does not make you a photographer or videographer. Understanding lighting, posing, years of school, practice, working, and having professional gear does.
Second, If you attempt to do this on your own and your first time is a complete disaster like mine, do not expect for there to be a second opportunity .
It will not happen. EVER!
Last, leave it to the professionals. We have the experience and skills to make your first time fun, memorable, and exciting. After that you can try it at home for your second time and hopefully more!
It may feel awkward having someone else in the room while your are making your intimate video and that is understandable. With some of our Boudoir After Dark collections we feature an erotic couples photo shoot prior to your video. This not only allows you the opportunity to create some amazing photos together, it also lets you become acclimated and comfortable with me the photographer and the intimate photos and video you are creating.
Our customers trust Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir for their erotic couples boudoir photography and videos because of our privacy. We will not publish anything online or anywhere without your consent. In most cases (unless there are photos to be retouched), the video and photos from your Boudoir After Dark shoot are immediately deleted from our camera and computer once they have been transferred to your USB drive, leaving you the only copy.
If you want to capture the passion of intimacy with some sexy photos and video of touching, kissing, and cuddling, or more, we have you covered.
Your comfort and privacy is our top concern. It may seem odd at first, but many couples left feeling more confident and want to experience it again!

Make Vegas memories with a boudoir photo shoot on our blackjack and craps table!
There are many fun and exciting things to do in Las Vegas while on vacation. It doesn't matter if you are arriving as a family, a couple, or just by yourself you want to do something fun and what you can't do back home.
Once you have experienced the fountains at the Bellagio, seen the city from the top of the Strat, rode the observation wheel at the Linq, or survived the freak-show on Fremont Street, you could be running out of options to stay entertained.
You could go eat at a nice restaurant, see a concert or show, hit the pools, go to a club, drink, or even gamble. However, most of these activities can be done back home where you live.
Trust me, I lived in boring Missouri and could do most of these things anytime of the week.
One experience you likely can't find back home is a boudoir photo shoot. To go even further, one experience you DEFINITELY can't do back home is a boudoir photo shoot on top of a craps table or a blackjack table. This is a true Las Vegas experience that you can only find here at Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir.
Gambling, shows, dinner, and clubs in Vegas can be a fun experience. However, one thing they do not give you are great memories. Unless you hit the jackpot and win Megabucks or are pulled on stage to be part of the performance, or came to get married, you may forget the majority of your vacation in a few months.
One way to create some lifelong Vegas memories is to experiencing a boudoir photo shoot on top of our blackjack and craps table! The boudoir photo shoot is an exciting experience that you get to be the star of, plus, you get to make beautiful portraits that you will share, love, and remember the time you had FOREVER!!!
We have had customers to us for a boudoir photo shoot to celebrate a birthday, a break-up, an engagement, a bucket list activity, memories before pregnancy, a gift for a significant other, or just because. We even had a couple come in to do a boudoir photo shoot prior to getting married by Elvis, and another before she went skydiving!
There are so many things to do in Vegas while on vacation. There is no doubt that when you come you will have an amazing time! Just remember to make your experience memorable.

Are you wondering how to be a professional photographer with an iPhone? Can you be one?
Well, in my case, can you be a professional boudoir photographer with a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra? This is a popular search term on Google, and I wanted to find out for myself. Are the newest and best smartphones availability today worthy of you ditching your heavy and expensive professional camera gear for something that can fit in your back pocket and make phone calls? The answer may surprise you.
About a years and a half ago I was doing a maternity photo shoot with my Canon 5D Mark II. I have been using that camera for nearly 10 years. It is a workhorse and an excellent camera for boudoir and maternity portraiture. After the photoshoot my clients husbands asks me if I seen the iPhone 12 Pro Max and said it takes amazing pictures. I replied, no I have a Samsung Galaxy S9 and its camera is horrible.
Shortly after he show me a few photos he took with his iPhone. They looked really good. He was gushing over a nighttime photo that he took of his house and how colorful and bright it looked for being taken at night. I agreed with him, it did look cool. A HRD photo that was overly saturated and brightened quite a bit, but it did look cool for a photo from a phone. He said that iPhone cameras are the next biggest thing and will be replacing DSLR cameras and put professional photographers out of business because everyone will be a photographer now.
Maybe he was right?
My camera, although old, still takes amazing high quality photos, but is it becoming a dinosaur with the advancement of cameras in smartphones? Maybe I do need a new camera? Ten years using the Mark II has been a long time and maybe technology has passed me by. I looked into upgrading to a new smartphone to see if he was right, but I just couldn’t do it.
About six months ago I met a fellow photographer who was talking about his new mirrorless Canon RP camera and how amazing it is. I did some research and the Canon RP is perfect for the boudoir photography I shoot. Plus, I already have Canon lenses so all I needed to buy was the camera and a lens adapter. So I finally updated my camera. The Canon RP is a great mirrorless camera for portraiture work, however, it does take some getting used to switching from an old DSLR to a new mirrorless camera, but I’m glad I did.
A couple weeks ago Samsung just released the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Now I really wanted to update my phone because it was getting old and Samsung says that the cameras on this phone are amazing! I thought now is the perfect time to see if what that man a year and a half ago is true, that you can be a professional photographer with an iPhone and that smartphones will put photographers out of business.
Not so fast.
I asked a friend to come to my boudoir photography studio in Las Vegas so I could test out my new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to see if I need to sell my photography gear and close my studio since everyone with a phone will be a photographer.
I am not going to go into detail all of the camera specs since this is not a review of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. You can easily find them on Samsungs website or countless YouTube videos answering the question, is the Samsung S22 Ultras cameras any good? They will talk about every lens and their features. I watched a few and that is what made me want to buy this phone.
My purpose was to see if the S22 Ultras camera could actually be used as a substitute for a professional camera in a studio environment.
First let me explain that the installed camera app has many modes, and each mode has countless options and settings. There is also pro camera app that is not included on the phone and had to be downloaded (Expert Raw).
The modes I used are my test were 108MP JPG, Pro mode which captures a RAW and a JPG, and Expert RAW. I also used my fairly new mirrorless Canon RP to capture the same look and compare its photo to that of the S22 Ultra.
I scheduled our photo shoot around 5:30 PM. This is the perfect time for photographers to take photos outside during this golden hour, but a terrible time for me as the daylight coming through my studio windows is disappearing by the minute. By the time we were actually ready to start the shoot there was very little daylight left, so I used my studio strobes for lighting.
There is no way for the smartphone to trigger the strobes when taking a photo, so those photos where shot using only the modeling lights. The S22 Ultra was set to auto mode, including auto white balance for each camera mode.
I had to really get close on some of these shots because the camera modes limit your zoom. For example, the 108MP JPG gives you the option of 1X, 2X, 4X, and 6X zoom, but both of the RAW camera modes give you 1X, 3X, and 10X zoom. Ideally as a professional photographer you want to shoot in RAW mode so you have more control of everything while editing your photos. This shot really needed a 2X zoom because I had to get extremely close with 1X zoom and had no space to move back to accommodate the 3X zoom. 2X zoom would have worked perfectly, but the RAW modes do not offer it.
Just so you know there were no color, exposure, lighting, ect. adjustments made on any of the photos. The RAW photos were loaded in Lightroom with their specific color profile and then exported as a JPG.
Here is a rundown of how I compared the cameras.
Looking at the photos you will notice that they all look very different. The auto mode on the Galaxy S22 Ultra does a terrible job at auto white balance as there is still a very present yellow tint from the modeling lights. The Canon RP shot was lit by the studio strobes and not the modeling lights. Since it is a true camera it has that ability to trigger the strobes to go off when taking a picture, unlike the smartphone. It was shot in RAW using auto white balance. Just like the S22 Ultras photos, it was loaded in Lightroom and exported as a JPG.
Winner of best color: Canon RP
Not really sure what happened here with the S22 Ultras auto focus. In the 108MP JPG shot it looks as it it focused more on the pillows than the models face. In all of the phones photos it seems as if it it automatically applies a portrait or softening filter to the images as nothing appears sharp. Maybe because the wide angle lens I used on the phone has a very shallow depth of field of f/1.8 or f/2.4 but nothing is in focus very well. There is also no way to change the aperture on the S22 Ultra. 1.8 or 2.4 is all you get and it is automatically selected depending if wether you zoom in or not. The Canon RP is a professional camera and has a full manual mode that lets you adjust everything, including aperture. The Canon RP’s was shot at f8 allowing you to select what you want in focus (the models face) and what you don’t want in focus (the pillows).
Winner of best focus: Canon RP
Sure, a sharp focus will give you better detail, but what about when you enlarge in? How far can you go before that amazing shot begins to look like garbage. When you look at a picture taken with a smartphones camera it will look great because you are viewing it on a screen the size of your hand. Most people will “edit” their photo on their phone as well by applying a filter or two. A professional photographer will use an editing program on a computer to truly edit the photo. Programs like Photoshop allows you to zoom in on a photo so much that you can edit a specific pixel in the image. A phone lets you zoom in a couple finger spreads, which really isn’t much.
In this example I used the S22 Ultras Pro-RAW photo because it is the only photo from the phone that had the eyelashes looking somewhat sharp in focus. I then loaded both photos into Photoshop and zoomed in to 204%. This is not even close. The Pro-RAW photo from the S22 Ultra is a mess, while the photo from the Canon RP looks great and still holds lots of detail.
Also, the entire Pro-RAW photo is full of noise, but the duplicate shot that the phone converts to Pro-JPG, removes the noise and actually makes it a better looking photo. Just don’t zoom in on it.
Winner of best detail: Canon RP
If you look and compare every photo, the Canon RP’s photos are far superior. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra appears to automatically soften the skin, which amounts to a blurry mess.When taking fun photos with your friends or posting some selfies to social media that would be a great feature to have, but doing that automatically for a professional photo shoot is a complete fail. There is very little detail left in the skin and it just looks bad.
What I am really confused about is how the 108MP JPG file size (23.1 MB) is over two times the size of the Canon RP file size (10.2 MB), but looks sooooo much worse? Isn’t bigger supposed to better? I zoomed 204% into the 108MP JPG photo and it a muddy mess.
If you are still want to know if you can be a professional photographer with an iPhone 13 Pro Max, a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, or Google Pixel 6 Pro, the answer is absolutely NO. You can not be a professional photographer with a smartphone. If you truly want to be a professional photographer, use that smartphone to search online or actually CALL a camera store to buy a professional camera and a couple of lenses. The difference in quality is night and day. I used the Canon RP in experiment because it is the camera I am currently using in my studio. It is not a high-end or top of the line camera. In fact it is actually considered an entry level mirrorless camera and perfect for my studio work and boudoir photography.
However, if you want to be a photographer using an iPhone or any smartphone, you definitely need a professional website to display your amazing photos. I am using Weebly to customize my professional website and you can save 10% when you subscribe to a paid plan at Weebly using my link.
What are your thoughts? Are you a going to upgrade your old smartphone to the iphone 13 Pro Max or Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and start a new career as a professional photographer? Do you use your phones camera for paid photo shoots or just for fun?

Here are 9 things you should consider when choosing a boudoir photographer.
How do I choose a boudoir photographer? Likely this is your first time experiencing a boudoir photo shoot and have no idea on how to select the best boudoir photographer near you. To help you make the best choice we complied a list of the top 9 things you should look for when selecting a boudoir photographer.
First off, let me explain to you why we complied this list. About a year ago we were contacted by a company that said they were big fans of ours and wanted to feature Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir on their 10 Best Boudoir Photographers in Las Vegas article. Naturally, we were honored by the selection, but then became puzzled and questioned, “Wow, there are more than ten boudoir photographers in Las Vegas?”, as you can see in our response to them.
Out of curiosity we did a Google search for boudoir photography in Las Vegas and were overwhelmed by the extremely large amount of boudoir photographers in the Las Vegas area. Some that we found at are good, but unfortunately, many are bad.
Here is our top 10 list of things to look for when selecting a boudoir photographer, or any type of photographer for that matter.
1- Website. This is paramount. Every boudoir photographer should have a website to display their work and allow you to decide if their style matches what you are looking for. It doesn’t cost a lot to own a website, so be cautious if the boudoir photographer only has a Facebook or a free website that has the hosting company name included with their websites name.
Ask yourself, “should I invest hundreds or thousands of dollars on a photographer who won’t invests little to no money on their business?”
Other questions to consider, is the website functional? When you click on page links do the pages actually take you to photos or content? Are there multiple photos of the same one or two women on their website? If so the photographer is likely new and photographed a couple of friends because they do not have client photos.
You can check how long a website has been active by entering it at, https://www.whois.com/whois/
If the boudoir photographer claims to be in business since 2015 but their whois shows the website was created in 2022 be extremely cautious.
2- Quality of Work. While checking out some of the other best boudoir photographers on the list we were named to, we found some photographers sites where the photos were of poor quality.
Photography is all about lighting. If the photos your are viewing on a boudoir photographers website are dark or look flat it’s likely because the photographer is not experienced in lighting, does not know how to work their camera, or know how to edit their photos. Proper editing software like Photoshop can turn a poorly exposed photo into one that looks great, so ask yourself, “if this boudoir photographer can correct these photos, why don’t they?” The answer is, they probably don’t know how. Is this who you want to invest in?
3- Location. Where is your boudoir photo shoot taking place? Is it taking place in a hotel, outdoors, in the mountains, dry lake bed, garage, or a home studio? Just like not having a website, not having a proper studio could be a red flag that the photographer may not be the best choice for you.
Here are some cute things boudoir photographers say to hide the fact that they do not have a studio. Don’t worry, we decoded what they really mean.
“I am a natural light only photographer because I do not believe in studio lighting."
-That is code for, I do not know how to work studio lighting because it’s too complicated or can not afford studio lighting.
“I prefer the intimate setting of photographing boudoir photoshoots in the comfort of your home.”
-That is code for, I do not have any place to do you photo shoot and definitely not spending money for a hotel room.
“I am an outdoors photographer who is one with nature and loves the intimacy it brings.”
-That is code for, I do not have a studio and hotel rooms in Vegas are expensive! Hopefully it’s not cloudy, raining, or over 100 degrees.
“Everyone loves coming to my home studio because it's so cute.”
-That is code for, trying to make an awkward situation sound appealing, but but don’t worry because my kids screaming and dogs barking won’t be that much of a distraction. Everyone loves dogs and kids, right?
4- Reviews. One of the best way to judge a boudoir photographer is through reviews. Google and Yelp are great places to read reviews from previous customers who share their experiences. Obviously, the greater number of positive reviews the better chance you will have a great experience. Just be aware that because of the intimate nature of boudoir photography, not all customers leave reviews.
Also, having an extremely large amount of “likes” and followers from social media sites is also something you may want to look out for. There are sites where you can purchase followers by the 100s and 1000s for only a few dollars. If your city has a population of 20,000 and the local boudoir photographers social media page has more “likes” than a Kardashian, something is definitely not right.
5- Retouching. What is retouching? Does the boudoir photographer offer photo packages like, “50 retouched photos for only $500”? Sounds like a great deal, but what exactly does the photographers retouching process includes? Is it simply running each photo through a high blur filter like the ones you see on popular social media apps. Ask them what program they use and how they retouch a photo. If it process sounds extremely simple or they can’t explain in some detail what they do, then you may be wasting $500 on a blurry mess.
Our retouching process takes 40 MINUTES on average to retouch ONE PORTRAIT. It’s not that we are slow, as we have been doing this since 2010, but because we are thorough. It’s a long process we use to make your portraits look amazing, not a quick pass though a blur filter. The difference is night and day.
6- Experience. How long has the photographer been in business?Does the photographer say that they photograph weddings, birthday parties, family photos, pets, newborns, engagements, maternity, fashion, cars, and boudoir?
Ever hear the figure of speech, “Jack of all trades, master of none”? A foot doctor is a doctor, however not the best choice of doctors to see if you are having pain in your chest.
If you want boudoir photography, get a boudoir photographer.
7- Pricing. Does the boudoir photographer have their pricing listed on their website, or are you forced to call them for a high pressure sales call?
After looking at many boudoir photographers websites, rarely could we find their pricing listed. Most say to call or email them for pricing. Could you imagine contacting Amazon every time you wanted to buy something just to find out how much it costs? You can find the pricing to our boudoir collections here. We list our pricing because we have integrity and value your time. Sure, other boudoir photographers in Las Vegas will try to undercut our pricing, but they could never beat the quality of service, product, and experience you receive with us.
8- Products. What products does the boudoir photographer offer? Looking at other boudoir websites the products they offer vary quite a bit. Most we found only offer 8x10 prints, large mounted wall art, and or a CD full of your photos. Unfortunately, these are inexpensive products that can easily be made at a big box pharmacy or retail stores photo department.
As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. We find that our boudoir clients want a product that is sleek and sexy. That is why we feature high end luxurious products that can not be made at a local retailer.
9- Awards. The last thing you should watch for when selecting a boudoir photographer are awards. Some photographers love to boast that they have been awarded, “Best Boudoir Photographer” or “Top Rated Boudoir Photographer” by some website or organization. Take these so called awards with a grain of salt. Most are from random websites like the one at the top that said we were on their 10 Best Boudoir Photographers in Las Vegas list.
Also, being a member of an International Boudoir Association of Photographers, or anything similar to that just means the photographer paid to be a member of that organization to look important and to inflate their ego.
The most entertaining ones to look out for are “published” photographers. These photographers want to give the impression that they are the best because their work has been published in a magazine. Ask one to name the magazine their photos were published in, and 99% of the time it will be an “online only magazine” that you never heard of, that no one looks at, and that the photographer had to paid the “magazine” have their work “published”. Being photographed by a published photographer sounds you are getting the best in the business, but are you really?
To us, the only award that truly matters is being thanked by our clients for delivering an excellent and unforgettable boudoir experience and hearing them say how much they love their portraits!
Hopefully you found our list of 9 things to look for when choosing a boudoir photographer both educational and entertaining. Just remember that a boudoir photo shoot is an experience that you will treasure forever. Choose your photographer wisely.

Make your Vegas vacation memorable with a craps table boudoir photo shoot experience!
Las Vegas is full of exciting and fun things to see and do. There are amazing shows, concerts, restaurants, and casinos that give you an experience you not find anywhere else. So at Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir we got to thinking. How can we combine something that makes Las Vegas world famous with boudoir photography. The answer was so obvious. Add the look of gambling into a boudoir photo shoot.
So we went out and did it! We got an authentic 12 foot craps table that was used in a casino and put it inside of our studio. We are proud to say that we are the first and only boudoir photography studio in Las Vegas, or anywhere else for that matter, to have a real craps table as a prop for a boudoir photo shoot.
Our new craps table is beautiful! However, when we got it, it needed some work.
First, the orange-tan colored Bellagio felt had to go. The Bellagio is a beautiful hotel and casino, unfortunately, this craps table felt does not accomplish the sleek and sexy look we want to achieve on our table, so off it went.
Luckily, we were able to find a craps table felt online with the exact look we wanted. The new black felt is stunning! Its color and design actually draw your eyes in to appreciate its beauty, not making you want to look away like the previous Bellagio felt it had (likely a casino trick they use to make you gamble more).
You can add the craps table boudoir experience to any purchased collection for an additional fee. You can view all of our lovely collections and pricing here. Now you can experience Vegas in a way you couldn't before, as well as have another story to tell about your trip. Make up as much of it as you want, because what happens here......

An amazingly fun photo shoot is the perfect cure for a bad break-up
Recently I got the opportunity to photograph the beautiful Miranda. She just experienced a bad break-up and wanted to feel sexy and confident again. Here are some photos from Mirandas boudoir photo shoot and her experience with us.
What made you want to experience a boudoir photo shoot?
-I was visiting Las Vegas for the week, apartment hunting after a bad breakup, and I was immediately mesmerized by the city’s feeling of endless possibilities. I recalled that I had always wanted to do a boudoir shoot, but had never quite made it to the “right occasion” to “deserve” one. Inspired by the energy of the city I realized, I deserve one just because! There is never a wrong time to pamper yourself, and you don’t need a reason to feel sexy and confident. You deserve it because it brings you joy, and that in and of itself is reason enough. So on a whim I decided to book one, thinking it seemed like Vegas was exactly the kind of city where you could book a last minute photo shoot. I was thrilled to be right about that! While Googling studios, Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir immediately came up as the most highly rated local boudoir studio. After reading all of the many happy reviews and browsing through the photos on the website, I decided to book one for myself.
What was your biggest fear before coming into the studio?
-My biggest fear was that the photos wouldn’t turn out the way I hoped and that I would be self-conscious about how I looked in them. The day of the shoot, my worries were quickly eased. I could tell that you had good knowledge of which poses, angles, lighting, etc., would make the photos look best, which I appreciated because I don’t know the first thing about any of those factors. As soon as I saw the photos after, I was extremely proud of and grateful for how beautiful they turned out.
What was your favorite part of the photo shoot?
-My favorite parts were getting to pick my favorite music, have a glass of wine to relax, and looking at the photos after! I enjoyed the good conversation as well.
Why did you want to experience a boudoir photo shoot?
-I was thinking about moving to Vegas after escaping a very toxic relationship, causing me to basically re-start my life from the ground up. As soon as I stepped off the plane, I was mesmerized by the energy of the city and the feeling of endless possibilities. There were bright gleaming lights all around, and so many fun activities to do against the backdrop of beautiful mountains draped in sunshine. Everywhere I looked, there were people lounging by the pool or basking in the warm weather, letting loose with friends and enjoying all of the fun and excitement that is to be found around every corner. From all the confident ladies strutting in their cutest party outfits, to the beautiful models posing for photos with tourists on the strip, it seemed that the universal message was to love the skin you’re in and embrace the present moment. I pondered how I could get in touch with that sexy, confident side of myself, while delighting in a distinctly glamorous, Vegas-like experience. That’s when I recalled my long time dream of having my first ever boudoir shoot. I realized I didn’t need to wait for “the right person” or “perfect occasion” to get these photos taken. There is no time like the present, and getting them done for me would be just as meaningful, if not even more so.
Would you recommend Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir to your friends?
-I would recommend Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir to my friends because you are professional, efficient, communicative, and provided an all around pleasant experience. I especially recommend you for those inexperienced with photoshoots like myself!
How did you feel being photographed by a male boudoir photographer?
-I did not feel weird having a male photographer. You were friendly, professional, easy to talk to, and I never felt uncomfortable during our interactions.
Thank you Miranda for sharing your experience. It is always great to hear how to find joy in yourself, especially after going through a tough time.
