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.

A testimonial from a recent client regarding her experience with Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir.
I choose Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir because I've been following them on social media and I just thought all the pictures of the women on there just look gorgeous and I figure with Valentine's Day coming up that this would be the perfect gift for my boyfriend.
My biggest fear before coming into the studio and doing the Boudoir photo shoot was just my comfort level and my comfortability with my body, but working with Bryan was pretty awesome, he got me to laugh during the entire session. We had a lot of fun, he made me feel really comfortable.
My favorite part of the photo shoot was actually seeing it all come together the entire experience actually, just walking into the studio, seeing seeing the setting, and then posing and then it was just really awesome to see all the pictures come together afterwards.
If my best friend asked me if they should come and have an experience with Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir, I would definitely say yes do it! It's so empowering and it makes you feel really good.
I would recommend Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir to anyone just because of my experience here. Just from the minute that I was calling to book the appointment to coming into the studio. Everything that happened here was awesome! I felt so good about myself.
Before coming into Las Vegas glamour Boudoir I did kind of have my reservations about being photographed by a male, but in all honesty, Bryan's professionalism is just top-notch and I think it's also a good thing to have him as your photographer because he is not only experienced, but knows what looks good and I think that makes the experience a little bit easier because it helps when you're not comfortable coming in knowing your own body and knowing what poses to do.

Chanda describes her boudoir photo shoot experience.
Following her boudoir photo shoot we asked the lovely Chanda to describe her experience from the beginning. Why she choose Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir, if she had any fears going into her photo shoot, and what she loved most about her photo shoot.
We appreciate all of the testimonials from our clients because it allows you the opportunity to hear someone else describe what motivated them to experience a boudoir photo shoot. Although everyone is different, the reasons most women give us are pretty much the same.
Why did you choose Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir?
-I chose Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir because I feel like this is a good place for me to get what I was looking for. My husband works away from town three weeks a month and I wanted to be able to send him something exciting and fun that he wasn't expecting.
What was your biggest fear before your boudoir photo shoot? Did it come true?
And if not, what happened instead?
-My biggest fear before my boudoir photo shoot was that I wouldn’t be able to pull it off. Did it come true, no, I was pleasantly surprised. In the beginning I was a little tense but by the end of it we were laughing and having fun and I think I had an overall great experience!
What specifically was your favorite part of your photo shoot and why?
-Specifically my most favorite part of the photo shoot was getting to do something for me. I’m a mom of two. Very rarely do I get to feel sexy or focus on me. I’m always chasing kids and cooking meals, so my favorite part is getting to feel special.
If your best friend asked you if they should experience a boudoir photo shoot with Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir what would you say?
-I would tell them they need to. I tried to get my best friend to sign up today but she was too shy so I’m excited to go back and show her my photos, tell her she made a big mistake, and get her to book with you.
Why would you recommend Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir to someone else?
-I would recommend Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir to any woman or man that wants to feel good about themselves. It's a fun experience and boosts your self confidence.

Recently we were fortunate to photograph the lovely Delaney who was in Las Vegas to celebrate her bachelorette party. Delaney always wanted to do a nude photo shoot and thought this would be the perfect time to do it.
Delaney wanted a fun and sexy photo shoot. She said that she loves the boudoir photography style, but wants to pose nude instead of wearing lingerie. Implied nude photos that show off how your body looks, but without showing EVERYTHING.
Inside my boudoir photography studio there is a nude portrait hanging on the wall that Delaney loves and she wanted to recreate a look similar to it. The nude portrait came out great and Delaney looks AMAZING!!!
Delaney also brought with her one of her favorite work shirts and wanted to be photographed in it. Sexy does not always mean wearing lingerie.
The photo shoot went awesome and Delaney loved her portraits. She was kind enough to to share her experience for everyone..
Why did you choose Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir?
- I chose Las Vegas Glamour Boudoir strictly on the experience. I wanted a quick fun shoot! I read the reviews and decided to go for it!
What inspired you to do a boudoir photo shoot?
- I am not one to pose in lingerie but I did wear some things that I found were sexy but still classy in my mind. Just to have that experience to just rock it and feel the confidence is amazing!
You did a nude photo shoot, how did you feel being naked in front of the camera?
- I was nervous being naked in front of the camera but that's the type of limits I like to push for myself. To get out of my comfort zone in that way, I was very excited to experience this feeling. I literally forgot I was naked after a while. Honestly, I feel like I can be naked all the time now and feel completely normal!
Did you feel uncomfortable being photographed nude by a male photographer?
- I thought it would be odd being nude in front of a male photographer but I find it easier to be naked in front of someone I don't know. I felt weird at first but after the photo session, I was completely fine! Bryan was very professional so it wasn't uncomfortable at all to me.
Why should every woman experience a boudoir or nude photo shoot?
- Honestly, I feel more confident in my body. I wanted to be nude to capture the beauty of a raw, nude, have it all out there body. Everyones body is so beautiful and I wanted to see that in myself. Every body is beautiful and to find that beauty is what I was after and it was so delicately captured in the photos. I did this photoshoot for myself. I just wanted to do something for me and I enjoyed every moment of it!
Thank you Delaney for your kind words. Glad that you had an amazing experience with us and becoming more confident in your body by stepping outside of your comfort zone.

Every woman is beautiful
Alexandra Raisman, one of the most talented American gymnast and two-time Olympian, recently responded on Twitter about a body-shaming incident when a man actually looked down upon her in a humiliating and rude manner for not finding her according to his so-called ideal gymnast’s body criteria.
This was probably the last famous incident of such kind by the end of the year 2017 and was responded by Aly Raisman in the most positive and sensible way; ‘...end body shaming…we have to stop putting so much pressure on ourselves and each other!’ she also tweeted ‘I am hopeful that 2018 will be the year that abuse and victim shaming ends. Who’s with me?’ and there was a huge number of people supporting her which proves that the concept of all bodies- big, small, tall, short, light, dark, skinny or curvy are beautiful in their own way, is rising strongly now. Let’s break the notion of a certain number of shape, size, or color is pretty and acceptable.
In your life you must have heard and experienced many heart breaking phrases such as ‘That person needs to eat!’, ‘You are way too fat!’, and ‘Real women have curves’; All of these comments and phrases, along with many other with the inherent similar meanings are both prejudiced and limiting.
The rise of the use of social media had increased this craze of comparing one to other and making negative and nasty comments to those who don’t seem to fit in the society’s cliché of beauty.
The fashion industry has already realized that the women that wear their fashion clothing and accessories are not all ‘white’ or ‘skinny’ but at the end of 2017 all the major Fashion Weeks and runways are featuring models with diversity, black or brown, plus sized or petite, short or tall, they all look beautiful when they wear their confidence embellished with their prettiest smile and walk on the runway in their favorite outfits.
The awareness of converting body-shaming into body acceptance is spreading among all the sensible people around the globe and they are realizing that it’s time to encourage the healthy life style and spread the happiness of positivity instead of clinging to old, dark and possibly unrealistic ideology of beauty. We can claim that the women have entered 2018 with the courage to defy the society’s fake standard of ‘perfect body’ and celebrating the body acceptance in various forms.
This is the year of the true women empowerment. Let’s make facts straight here; Real women have curves! NO, some have them, some don’t. Still they are all real and beautiful in their own way.
Don’t jump to conclusions however. The girl you called fat could be fighting with a serious health issue. Stop telling plus sized women to cover themselves or not to wear certain garments.
The iconic fitness and beauty concepts harped by the beauty and fashion industry are just forcing you to fit into an unreal standards, just to sell their products!
Don’t be fooled, be realistic.
Stop telling skinny women to start eating, as she may be going through some painful phase of her life.
Remember, the cruel things other’s say, represent their own misconceptions, fears and prejudices, it has nothing much to do with your body. Ignore the nasty remarks, take a break and LOVE YOURSELF.
Some of my favorite boudoir photos are also some of the simplest to create
There is no expensive studio lighting being used and no multiple light set ups. In fact, there is only one light source, the sun. Oddly enough, it is not placed in front of my clients to light their face, but placed behind them or to the side.
You may ask, how does a poorly lit subject become one of your favorite photos? Easily, I use a few dollars worth of accessories and I shoot in manual mode.
Here are the items I use to create my backlit window lit boudoir photos.
First, you need a sunny day, obviously.
Second, you will need a sheer window curtain. It does not have to be anything fancy. The curtain is used to soften the light on your subject.
Third, you need a reflector. Sometimes you can get away without having one on some side lit shots, but for the most part you will want to use one. The reflector will help fill in the shadows on your subject. You can also find a DIY tutorial on how to make a large reflector here, http://www.lasvegasglamourboudoir.com/blog/2012/10/how-to-build-a-large-reflector-for-your-photography-studio
Last, you need to face your fears and place your camera in manual mode. Use a light meter if you have one, or if not, use the cameras built in meter. Take your exposure on your subjects face and expose a couple of stops brighter. There is really no perfect amount, so just play with it until the photo looks good.
Now you can create some amazing looking backlit window light boudoir photos that your clients will LOVE!!!
