A Look the Lens
Boudoir is a celebration of your body, and so much more.
Intimate portraits allow you to reconnect with yourself. It's an opportunity explore the deeper self-acceptance and self-confidence that's already within you.
While boudoir is often thought of as a gift for a partner (go for it!), you'll always walk away feeling reminded of your unique beauty and an electric spark of confidence to match.
No matter your reason for walking through the door, a boudoir photoshoot is always a gift to yourself—one that keeps on giving, long after the session is over.
What is boudoir?
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.
