Adore You Boudoir | Cedar Falls Iowa Boudoir Photographer

“The beauty of a woman must be seen in her own eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart,”

Audry Hepburn

“April, can a boudoir session really change my life?”

Here’s what you need to know…

There are so many misconceptions about boudoir photography that I want to clear up before we get started…

  • Boudoir is for EVERY type of women.
  • Numbers do NOT define you.
  • You can NEVER lose your sexy, no matter what age you are! Trust me. 
  • You don’t need ANY type of experience at all.
  • Women who invest in themselves, go further!
  • Lastly, Be You. Do You. For You.

Now it’s time to see what boudoir really is… 

“You only live once, you might as well be a badass!”

“You’re supposed to be the leading lady in your own life!”

The Holiday

I’ll bet you’re thinking- “These women are beautiful. They’re probably models who walk down the runaway every other weekend. They aren’t just your average everyday-women that you see at your local supermarket.”

But what if you’re wrong?

Well, you’re actually half right/half wrong. These women ARE completely gorgeous. That’s a fact!

But these are 100% everyday-women. These are wives, mothers, grandmothers and so much more! 

These strong women are your local PTA Moms, nurses, lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc; these are everyday women who decided to treat themselves to so much more than just a manicure or a makeover.

A “Luxury Boudoir Experience” with Adore You Boudoir is a step towards:

  • Appreciating your body NO MATTER what.
  • Recognizing that you’ve NEVER lost your sexy. Ever!
  • Documenting your beauty & growth even if you haven’t hit your milestone!
  • Choosing to celebrate yourself for a change when you do hit that milestone, get the promotion, or turn 40, 50, 60+ years old.
  • Remembering that you don’t have to be so hard on yourself, we truly are our own worst critics.
  • It’s okay to live a little, splurge a little, and feel drop dead gorgeous every once in a while!

Everything you need to know to get this DREAM session started.

I WANT TO BOOK A SHOOT, BUT I AM SO NERVOUS.

It’s totally normal to be nervous! Everyone is (including me when I did mine) but you’ll have a great time and when you see your beautiful photos, it’ll be totally worth it!

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO POSE, WILL YOU TELL ME WHAT TO DO?

I will absolutely show you how to pose from your fingers to your toes and where to look. All you have to do is show up and have fun!

WHERE WILL MY BOUDOIR SESSION TAKE PLACE?

The majority of my photo shoots take place in my studio at 2609 Rainbow Drive in Cedar Falls. I have multiple sets to choose from. Hair and makeup is done at Salon Professional Academy, also in Cedar Falls.

Often clients want to shoot in a hotel or special location. Please let me know if that’s you and which hotel you are considering. You are responsible for booking the hotel room. I often travel for boudoir sessions and would love to chat with you!

DO YOUR CLIENTS DO THEIR OWN HAIR AND MAKEUP?

No, they don’t. I have fabulous hair and makeup artists that work with me on every shoot. Professional hair and makeup styling are included in the retainer fee.

There is nothing more rewarding than making my clients feel as gorgeous as they really are.
