We believe that every body is beautiful and deserves to be celebrated. Whether you're looking to capture your ever-changing body before it grows (let's get you in here in the first 16 weeks of your pregnancy before you pop!) or you want to give your fiancé a gift that they will cherish forever, we're here to help.
We specialize in creating stunning, brag-worthy intimate portraits that showcase your unique beauty and make you feel confident and empowered.
You might be doing this for someone else, but you will end up feeling that it was a gift for yourself.
I am a San Francisco boudoir photographer — I see beauty in every person, and LOVE to show that in photos, but mostly, to show you that beauty.
I also hate withholding photos from you. So, all my packages are inclusive of all edited digital images.
My natural light, in-home like studio is located in a safe neighborhood of Inner Sunset with lots of nearby parking.
I am a wife, mom to 2 human boys, 2 dog boys, and 1 tortoise (he's a boy too!). I gifted my own boudoir photos for my husband for our 1st wedding anniversary, so I also totally know how you feel! It's super nerve wrecking, but it's oh-so-worth it!
I can't thank you enough. I've really struggled over the last year to accept my body with the weight gain and scars from the accident. I love these pictures. I think this ended up being a bigger gift to me than it will be for my future husband. Thank you for showcasing my joyfulness and sexiness at the same time. I really appreciate you.
Life happens so fast, and it’s important to hold onto you - as you are now. A photo session to celebrate and preserve time spent working on yourself, and celebrating who you are now, is the best gift you can give yourself (and your partner) - you/they will cherish each memory for a lifetime.
Nothing pumps you up like getting pampered like a movie star.
You can do your own hair and makeup? Nonsense. You deserve to roll out of bed, sit in a chair and let someone else do the work for you once in a while! If you prefer your makeup and hair a certain way, we will definitely find that out beforehand, so your vision will come true.
You will arrive at my studio 1-1.5 hours before our appointment, so you can get all your face/hair features SHINING before getting in front of the camera. This will also get you comfortable in the studio space, me, and feeling your best!
WOW these are great!!! Thank you so much! I had an amazing time working with you and really love how the photos turned out. It's going to be hard waiting until our birthdays in June to show my husband these pictures!
Within 2-3 weeks of your photos session, you’ll receive your online photo gallery with all (and I really mean all) of your images. I don’t like to leave anything out, so you’ll have plenty of photos to flip through and enjoy! Feel free to download, print, and share to your heart’s content.
If you want a photo gift like albums, we are also here to help!
Reach out to book your portrait session via my contact form. With your deposit paid (only $100), we’ll start planning! We’ll hop on Zoom or a call to discuss your expectations if you prefer, and I’ll answer any questions that you have. I’m here to help you with every little detail from wardrobe styling to coming up with props. Once everything is set, it’s time to look forward to photo day!
All of the prep is done, and now it’s time to arrive at the studio for the portrait session and get pampered! Remember to relax and enjoy the moment - I’ll guide you when needed, but will encourage you to focus on having fun!
So, I never thought I would do a boudoir shoot, but eventually decided to give it a go. This is very out of character with me because I'm awkward and hate almost every picture of myself (even most of my wedding pictures).
On the other hand, I absolutely loved the experience with Emily (photos) and Alicia (hair and makeup). It was incredibly easy and the end results blew me away. They both did a great job helping me look and feel my best.
I love how many photos Emily gave back and the option to pick and choose my favorites rather than a pre-selected 5-10 like some other vendors do. She gave an excellent curation and I was amazed at how many I not just liked, but loved!!!
This will be something to remember for sure - if you have doubts just do it!

I honestly just don't get the whole "showing your photos but you can't have it unless you pay up" approach. I've tried it, and it was not me. I felt icky doing it, and I honestly felt sad for those photos that didn't get picked that we (me, as the photographer, and you as a person) worked so hard for! So you get to keep it all.
Nope! I just personally love them, so that's what's mostly represented in this website, but when I send you your gallery, you will get most images in both black and white and color.
You will get your digital images in about 2-3 weeks. Rush delivery is available for $100, which will be 2-3 days turnaround time.
If you are ordering a physical album through me, please allow 6 weeks turnaround. Rush delivery is available for additional $250, which can be done in approximately 2 weeks.
There are many other online album creating services (some are DIY) that might also be a fast and easy option for you as well if you are in a rush!
This is a discount given when you give me permission to share your images!
You can give me an OK to a set of images, whatever you are comfortable with.
I do ask that you give me permission on at least 5 images to receive this discount. This discount will be given as a refund, after your photo release once you choose your photos.
Very! We plan the whole entire thing for you - and can be involved in outfit choosing, poses, inspiration, all of it, as much or as little as you want me to be. :)
Once you book with me, I am available via text, zoom, or even in-person!
I (me, Emily, your photographer) hate my arms. I don't need a photographer to tell me my arms are fine. It's not. lol
Similarly, I am not here to tell you whatever you are self conscious about is perfectly ok. Instead, I am going to hear you, and yes, I am going to totally pose you so we will emphasize all of what you LOVE about your self. I got you.
I do not alter your body when I send you your photos. I am not here to tell you what is and what is not beautiful - honestly, I don't see them.
I will, however, photoshop those "imperfections" if you tell me either before the session, or after you see the photos and you notice something you want me to change.
So yes, I do, upon request!
I do! My deposit is $100 to secure the date, and rest is not due until the photoshoot day. You can pay in any increments you want to, or if you want to pay even later, you can! Photos will be delivered once payment is received
