Imagine if you were looking through a Sioux Falls Facebook page and someone had posted this:
“Any recommendations for a cheap gynecologist? Need an annual exam done but don’t want to pay an arm and a leg!”
I don’t know about you, but I rarely feel as vulnerable as when I am sitting in a paper gown on a table with stirrups on it and a plastic speculum waiting. When I’m there, I want to know that despite the fact this isn’t in my comfort zone, I’m going to have the best Dr. I can find and one who will treat me with respect. I want someone who, after all, is said and done, will make me feel like I did the right thing for my body.
Month after month I see these posts from women looking for the “cheapest” boudoir photographer. I’m always left wondering who these bold women are who are so comfortable getting nearly naked in front of the cheapest photographer they can find. I know they’re not my clients because my clients tell me all the time how one of the things that were holding them back from booking a session was the fear of how the sessions will go.
Will I feel vulnerable?
Will you make me do weird sexy faces?
Will I have to get naked?
What if I hate the photos?
I’ve been doing boudoir since 2006, and I’m not the cheapest because I am really damn good at what I do, and more importantly, I’m really damn good at how I make you FEEL.

Boudoir photography is so much more than putting on some lingerie, arching your back and making pouty faces.
Look, you’re a woman. You get that someone making you feeling sexy is just as much in your MIND as it is with your body. It’s why we can be so totally HOT for the geeky guy who other people wouldn’t look at twice. If that man gets into your mind, he’s got you, body and soul.
Then there’s the other part. I can count on one hand the number of women who were completely comfortable and unabashed in my boudoir sessions, and they were professional models. Every SINGLE woman who comes in here has hang-ups. About their body, their hair, whatever. Part of my job is to show you that none of that matters, and how the right posing and lighting can make a world of difference.
Shalista did an amazing job and coached me through every little thing! I was in awe at my viewing and couldn't believe how well the shots turned out! If you have been considering a boudoir session, do it! You will feel so empowered and sexy as hell.”~Chelsea Rae
You might feel vulnerable at first. All good things start with getting outside our comfort zones.
No weird faces, I promise.
You won’t have to get naked (unless you want to!)
I’ve never had someone hate their photos, but you can bet if I were the cheapest I wouldn’t care if you hated them as long as I got paid. If you don’t like the results, I’ll make it right because that’s what professionals do.
Are you ready?
