Miss T - I felt beautiful, something I truly never felt!! 

From Miss T

I came across your Facebook page and started following it. I loved reading all the other feedback and stories from all the other women. For the first time in my life went lingerie shopping, and was constantly looking at all the pictures trying to get ideas. It was awesome getting my hair and makeup done. Definitely calmed me down. I was super nervous weeks leading up to the shoot. I was so nervous if I could pull off the shoot and what I would look like. About 10 min into the shoot I felt amazing, I felt like I was actually a model and felt beautiful, something I truly never felt!! 

I was super nervous to see if I truly did pull it off, until Shalista sent me my sneak peek  picture and absolutely couldn't believe my eyes!! I found myself looking at it all the time. The pictures were a gift for myself and my boyfriend!

His very first response was when I walked out the door from having the pictures done and the look on his face was just WOW!!! He said I was absolutely beautiful and couldn't wait to see the pictures. He knew I was doing the shoot, but I kept all my clothing choices a complete surprise. I brought him to the viewing, the response was priceless!!!  I remember Shalista playing the slide show, saying we needed to pick our favorites and he said " Your gonna make me choose!!! I want them all" " Wow just wow, you look like a model" He loved them and wanted them all! He couldn't believe I actually went through and did the shoot. He never thought I would do something so out of my league! Hell yes I would do another shoot, no questions asked!!! I tell everyone that its something every women need to experience at least once in their life!

Miss Anonymous - I've never been satisfied enough with myself.

I had so many reasons not to do the shoot. Like most women out there I didn't feel worthy of it. I knew it was not the right time financially and I wanted to grow my hair out longer and I wanted to lose weight. 

After following Shalista's Facebook page for about a year and wishing I could do that I realized I've never been satisfied enough with myself to do this. Always waiting until (insert just about anything here). I woke up one day and realized these pictures were for my husband and he sees me everyday. He sees me in good light and in bad; in nice outfits and in oversized clothes. He sees me from every angle with and without makeup. He sees me at my worst and now, thanks to Shalista, WE BOTH get to see me at my best!

Miss Anonymous - My husband absolutely loved the photos.

I decided to do this photo shoot as a birthday present for my husband.  I was very nervous about doing this and had second thoughts even as I walked throug the door that day.  Having my makeup and hair done eased the nervousness a little.  It looked great.  Shalista was amazing she has a way about her that makes you feel comfortable.  One of my biggest worries was if I would be able to pose for the photos and look good.  Shalista helps out with suggestions on how to pose.  I had a great time and would definitely do it again.  My husband absolutely loved the photos.

Miss B - Society tells me to shame my body, Shalista helped me learn to love my body.

From start to finish my session with Shalista was amazing. Before I got into the room I thought I was crazy and even slightly embarrassed that I was doing this. Being a heavier-set woman, I have been conditioned to be embarrassed of exposing my body or even sexualizing myself at all. Society tells me to shame my body, Shalista helped me learn to love my body. I was definitely not at my thinnest when I did my session, but I knew that I wanted to celebrate my body as it was at that time. No matter if I lost or gained weight, I would always have these photos to look back on and remember what I looked like when I was a newly-wed woman in my 20's. Shalista is the best of the best and I would recommend anyone I know to go to her; in fact a few of my friends have gone to her since my session! I left my session empowered and feeling sexy. I left my ordering session amazed and in awe. I look back at my book and can't wait to do another session. 

  1. What made you decide to do a boudoir session? Please describe how you came to the decision and what finally made you take the leap!

    I had contemplated doing a session but was so nervous that I needed to be in better shape. I wasn't very confident about my body at the time and kept looking at old photos of myself when I weighed less. That's when I decided that I needed this. I needed to see myself exactly at the weight I was currently at and know that I could still be sexy.

  2. What made you decide to hire me as your photographer?

    Shalista was the only person I wanted to go to for boudoir. I knew she would be professional, make me look like a million bucks, and ease any fears or worries I had.

  3. How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?

    I was so nervous before my shoot. I thought I was slightly crazy for doing this and embarrassed even. I mean, who would want to see photos of me in my lingerie? That's something people on the internet would make fun of, not celebrate. I was quickly put at ease as soon as I got into the studio and started hair and makeup. 

  4. Now that you've had your own photo shoot, how was it?

    The photo shoot was fun, eased my mind and even made me feel empowered. It was the sexiest I have felt in a long time. I was a little sore at the end from all the contortions Shalista, put me in, but I knew that she was working it out to make me look like a bombshell.

  5. Is there anything I could do that would make this experience completely perfect?

    Maybe some fun or sexy music playing to help get into the mood a little more! 

  6. How did you feel about having your hair and makeup done?

    LOVED it. Angelique is amazing and I always feel safe in her hands. 

  7. Any other thoughts or suggestions you'd like to tell me about?

    You're amazing. I love you. I want to do another session so badly. 

Miss M - He couldn't stop smiling.

I was wanting to do something unique for my new husband.  This is OBVIOUSLY the perfect gift for a husband.  I didn't do a whole lot to prepare for my session, just took good care of my body right before so I would look and feel my best.  I wasn't nervous at all - just really excited because I'd never done anything like this before.  When I arrived to my session, Shalista was really cool and made me excited for the shoot.  She's very down to earth so that helped too! The first thing I had done was my hair and make up.  It was nice having it done, because face it,  I don't have my own hair stylist and make up artist at home.  I loved how my hair turned out.  Very elegant and glamorous!  

The photoshoot went better than I expected.  I had more fun than I thought I would.  It didn't feel like a chore or anything, it was just fun! Leading up to seeing the photos, I felt a little nervous.  I mean, I didn't know how I'd look because I don't normally take photos in my underwear! :P But when I saw them, I was floored.  I looked SO GOOD.  At least Shalista made me look awesome.  I'm normally pretty self conscious about how I look, especially with little clothes on, but Shalista took just the right shots of me and made me look like a movie star.  I felt so good about them!  And my husband, let's just say he was happy about it.  He couldn't stop smiling at the album, ha.  I will totally do this again in a few years.  I feel like it's something every woman should do, because no matter who you are the pictures are going to look stunning.  They made me feel good about myself.  Whenever I need a little confidence booster, I look at my album! Lol.  I recommend a boudoir photoshoot to every woman out there.

Miss C - Something BIG for her anniversary!

As I was scrolling through Facebook I saw Shalista's ad and clicked on it. I did my research and all her pictures were and are amazing. I wanted to do something BIG for my anniversary. I knew this was the BIG thing to do as I looked through Shalista's pictures and reviews.

Everything said was positive and uplifting about every picture she took. What I really loved was that it was not a bunch of pictures of a certain size. She makes everyone look amazing and feel beautiful. Her passion of photography and making people feel how we should feel is what made me make up my mind and get some photos done. I was really nervous going into this but what got me through the nerves is myself reminding me that she does this all day long, she LOVES what she does and she will make me look great!!! And Shalista did just that!! When I was viewing my photos I WAS BLUSHING!! One of the hardest things I had to do is wait a month to give them to my husband. He loved them and said "WOW, you went out of your comfort zone"!! I would defiantly do another photo shoot and do ALL the pampering that Shalista has to offers! Totally worth it! I have one friend doing a photo shoot soon!!! Thanks for the beautiful pictures and memories of a lifetime! 

Miss S - Stunning Bridal Boudoir

Miss S put a lot of thought into her session! She picked outfits she knew her fiance would love and we went about a session that was going to be radiant and sexy.

I love that she picked outfits that were sweet and flirty, but ultra sexy. It was very cool to watch her pull the wardrobe and know everything was perfect for her personality and the look she wanted.  I can only imagine her man was through the roof when he saw these!

Check out her gorgeous photos and her review in her words!!


I've always wanted to do a Boudoir photo shoot and I knew the perfect time would be as a wedding gift to my fiance. I was very nervous and self conscious about doing this until I met with Shalista for the first time. She has an amazing attitude & gives you all the confidence you need and more! I couldn't believe how sexy & beautiful I felt during the photoshoot. Shalista makes you feel so comfortable and natural. I was so excited afterward to have this unique gift to give to my husband & let me tell you.. his jaw dropped!!! He was in complete awe and I'm so glad I have my photo book to look back on when I'm not feeling my "sexiest self." I would highly recommend doing this & I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Shalista!<3
