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.

Why you should consider a maternity session! Yes, you are so beautiful!

Women can do incredible things, perhaps the most famous thing is growing another human! 

Pregnancy is such a short time - although it may feel like a loooong time - and it's such a beautiful experience to remember. Taking a moment to appreciate your marvelous changing body and celebrate this new life is a great reason to plan a maternity boudoir shoot!

More and more mom's to be are seeking ways to remember their body though a portrait session. Some women aren't comfortable posing in lingerie or nude, but instead do a more traditional maternity session either in the studio or outdoors. Shalista Photography can do both!

Each Pregnancy is Unique!

Maybe it's your first pregnancy or your last, or perhaps there was a struggle with infertility. I can't tell you the number of women I've had in the studio that are documenting their pregnancy for some or all of these reasons. Each baby, first, last, only or of many, is so special and needs to be celebrated!

Your curves are amazing!

Hey, we all know pregnancy is good for creating an awesome rack! Maybe you felt that you lacked in that area! Pregnancy is famous for filling out the chest and some women really want to remember that, and often, so do their partners. Pregnancy women are stunning! They glow, even if they are not feeling beautiful. What better time to have a boudoir session when you have curves in all the right places and are looking more beautiful than ever!

Miss K - It ended up being a gift for herself.

Always wanted to do a sexy shoot but was always afraid. Well I finally worked up the courage and found Shalista. I walked through the door that morning not knowing what to expect, palms sweaty and my lip shaking a bit. Shalista came around the corner with this huge smile, that easily made me feel at home. We got started with makeup and hair, now that was amazing; for once to not have to do it myself. By the time I was done I felt like I was on top of the world. During my shoot, she directed me to pose ways I never thought possible. I felt like a goddess. While choosing my photos I was amazed on how gorgeous I looked. To be honest I went in there thinking I was giving a gift to my fiance and I walked outta there with a gift for myself. A gift of self confidence, knowing that I can be sexy. Thank you so much!!
