incredible experience

“This was such an incredible experience, one that every woman deserves! Laura is amazing. She made me feel so comfortable and at ease. More importantly, she had me feeling sexyand confident. She tells you how to pose and look your absolute best. Laura does all of the thinking for you and is phenomenal at what she does. I loved that we got to go over all the photos together right after the shoot. I absolutely love how all of my pictures came out and am really looking forward to seeing the final product. Zuleika was also amazing at hair and makeup!! Her service is not one to be missed!!!”

– Sara W (from Yelp)

I'm glad I summoned up my courage

“Laura is possibly one of the nicest people I have ever met and she made me feel so comfortable during our shoot. Though this is probably one of the priciest things I’ve ever done, I am happy with the photos and hope my fiancé will think they are worth it. 🙂 I did it as a surprise for him and I’m glad I took the risk and summoned up my courage to do this shoot! The pictures turned out amazing, even with the body I have now, and it was such a fun experience that I hope to someday come back when I have an even better body and do it as a celebration of my achievement! “

– Jennifer L. (from The Knot)

I'm a strong, sexy, confident woman

“Hi Laura, Thank you so much for these pictures. After breaking up with my long-term boyfriend, I was feeling more self-conscious about my body than usual. I had done a lot of reflecting on the relationship over take-out and television, and I was definitely not feeling my best. When I got to the studio, you were so friendly and professional that, although I was stepping out of my comfort zone, you were still able to get some great shots. The results of this photo shoot were just what I needed to reboot my self-esteem. I won’t forget that I’m a strong, sexy, confident woman ever again now that there’s photographic proof! I’m so happy that I did this photo shoot and I’m thrilled that I did it for myself and nobody else. You were such a pleasure to spend time with and I wish you all the best. Thanks again!”

– Katie M. (from a personal email)

Basically, just do this.

“If you are a woman who loves her body, do this. And If you are a woman who isn’t 100% confident about her body, who’s shy or “not photogenic” or anxious or or whatever, do this (just described myself guys). Basically, just do this. Laura is amazing– I walked in genuinely terrified, convinced I would walk out with barely any photos I could be proud of, and I am so happy to say that all of my fears were totally unwarranted. If you’ve seen her gallery, you know Laura is a pro. I knew she was a pro, but I also knew how awkward I can be when a camera is pointed at me. I’m thrilled to say Laura coached me through the session, which flew by, and then blew me away with the photos she took. I could have cried, I was so happy. I can’t wait to see the finished product (you will not be able to walk away without purchasing an album. Really. I totally thought I’d be happy with the the photos included in my Gilt deal, but sprung for a book. #noregrets). Do it!”

– Sybil K. (from Yelp)

I never knew I could look that good

“An amazing experience! After reading these reviews, I’m not sure what else to add. These reviews say it all! I agreed with everyone’s post. Laura and Zuleika are the best!! I was also nervous and not sure what I was doing, but Laura is so calming, helpful, funny, kind, and an awesome photographer! She captured such beautiful pictures that I never knew I could look that good. Thanks to Zuleika too!! Zuleika dolled me up so beautifully and was such a help throughout the shoot! They are an an incredible team and really do great work!! Everyone should experience this at least once, book them! You’ll be very happy!!”

– Gio O. (from Yelp)

Beautiful and empowered

“Laura and Zuleika were beyond professional and supportive. I thought I was going to feel awkward about the whole thing, but I left feeling beautiful and empowered. I was worried at first about the pricing, but once I saw my pictures and my makeup/hair, I knew it was more than worth the money. Can’t wait to see the final product in 4 weeks! Look nowhere else than here for your boudoir needs!”

– Lucie D. (from Yelp)

flawless

“Laura is unbelievable!! Don’t hesitate to get your pictures done with her. Everything with her has been flawless. From her studio with her amazing closet to the beautiful pictures I received. She knew I had a tight deadline and has done everything to ensure I get my album back in time for my 1 year anniversary. Would recommend her 100%”

– Ashley K. (from The Knot)

The best thing I have EVER done

“This was by far, the best thing I have EVER done! The experience is something I will never forget! I am doing this as a surprise for my fiancé and giving him the book the night before our wedding! Laura is incredible and coaches you through ever step and pose! She is so talented. I initially thought I wouldn’t use anything from the closet but when I walked in, it was like every girls dream! I just had to borrow at least one piece! I also got my hair and makeup done which I highly recommend. Overall this was one of the best things I could have done for myself, my confidence has literally sky rocketed and I feel so much sexier in my own skin! It’s amazing what a photo shoot like this can do! I will definitely be doing this again! DO IT! I can assure you you won’t regret it! Thank you Laura!”

– Jennifer B. (from Google Reviews)

Laura is an artist

“Laura is an artist that truly understands how to capture the gorgeous artistry of a womans body.  She is a genius. From the moment I walked in the door, I was blown away. She was professional and her makeup artist was amazing. With a glass of wine in hand and music in the background the mood was being set. It was a totally relaxed, comfortable experience. It was so much fun and it really made me appreciate being a woman, mother and wife with a renewed sexy that I know will stay with me for a long time. The pictures were way beyond my expectations, I literally almost cried when I saw how sophisticated, glamorous, playful and sexy they were. My husband was floored. He thinks they are the most beautiful pictures he has ever seen of me. He loves that he will have this little private book of me that he can look at whenever he wants, which is exactly the gift I wanted for him. As it turns out, the gift was just as much for me.”
