A Look              the Lens 

Intimate and Sensual Portraits for the Everyday Woman


Our boudoir sessions are designed around you. We want to leave you feeling recharged and empowered just by being your genuine self no matter what age, body type, skin color, or background.

Atlanta’s most trusted                boudoir photographer


If no one’s said it yet, then let us be the first to tell you that these are all traits already within you.

We are only helping you reconnect with the self-acceptance and self-confidence you once exuded so effortlessly.

While boudoir is often thought of as a gift for a partner, our clients always walk away being reminded of their unique beauty and with an electric confidence to match.

It ends up being a gift to themselves—one that keeps on giving, long after the session is over.

What is boudoir?

Profound Self-Love

Powerful Femininity

Undeniable Sensuality

Effortless Empowerment

Meet Maria Rouse

Professional Luxury Boudoir Photographer & Self-love Enthusiast

Hey, Gorgeous! I’m Maria, but you can call me Ria.

Photography has always been the center of my life, but a few years ago, I realized it’s not the camera or even the photos that I’m in love with — it’s the life-changing experience I take clients on during our boudoir sessions that I’m truly passionate about.

When I first decided to give boudoir photography a try, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. But not because I got shy around lingerie — oh no, I was the farthest away from that.

It was because it broke my heart hearing women tearing themselves apart even before a session started during portrait sessions.

I realized I can take this opportunity to bring women on a powerful journey towards self-love.

Because they’ve decided to stand in front of a camera, completely vulnerable, all insecurities front and center, and just be. They've decided to accept their body as is for the moment, and to find their inner vixen, goddess, and sensuality.

And watching a woman be able to embrace herself again and be empowered by her vulnerability is everything to me.


Because she exudes confidence and is unapologetically in love with herself. And nothing can get in her way.
