A Look the Lens
Intimate and Sensual Portraits for the Everyday Woman
If no one’s said it already, 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.
And while boudoir is usually thought of as a gift for a partner, we show our clients that the photos end up being a precious gift to themself.
A gift that reminds them of the electric confidence and beauty that only they have.

Meet Maria Rouse
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.
