" I booked an adventure boudoir shoot with Paige in August and it was amazing! Not only did the photos turn out incredible, but the morning we spent together was so empowering and fun! She does everything to make sure you’re safe and comfortable and feeling your best! I can’t recommend enough! If you’re on the fence, just do it! I’m so glad I did! "
" I LOVE THEM!!! Wow they’re absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for this whole experience, I felt sexier than I ever have and it was truly empowering!! If I ever decide to do this again I’m coming straight for you!! Thanks again so so so much "
"If you’re thinking about booking with Paige DO IT! I can't recommend Paige enough! I booked an intimate boudoir with her. At first, I was extremely nervous because I had never done something like this before and with in minutes she was able to ease my concerns. She has such a natural and caring demeanor it was hard not to feel comfortable! She was so helpful when giving directions on how to pose, for example, when my eyes should be closed, open, looking down...the position of my chin and the angle of my legs- all to make sure I looked the most beautiful. She would even get into the pose so I could see what it's supposed to look like! I still feel empowered, beautiful, and special from the shoot. I will definitely be booking with Paige again in the future!"
"I had an amazing experience being photographed by Paige for my first boudoir shoot. From our initial communication to after the shoot, she was incredibly thorough, detailing what I would expect during the photo shoot process and also inquiring about what would make me feel most comfortable and how she could be accommodating. Getting photographed by Paige made me feel incredibly empowered and sexy. She has a natural and effortless way of making you feel like the hottest bitch on earth, which is so important when you’re practically naked in front of someone (in my case, totally nude). Paige’s approach was so respectful and encouraging (i.e. do you feel comfortable pulling your panties down a bit to show your hip?). Her suggestions got me to step outside of my box and really embrace my body in a sensual way. When I saw the unedited images, I was floored — I never knew I could look that hot. Paige’s talent and creativity is undeniable. She has such a keen eye to detail (digging the use of greenery in the foreground for a peeping Tom sorta vibe, but classy). I also loved how she emphasized the curves of my body with lighting and contrast, producing a photographic result that was naturally sexy — the exact look I was aiming for. I’d highly recommend Paige for anyone considering getting boudoir shots taken. I, myself, will definitely be booking with her again when I’ve digested all the hotness from this past shoot."
"I highly recommend Paige. I did my first boudoir shoot with her and the experience left me feeling sexy and empowered. She assisted me in finding a kick ass makeup artist as well as a studio and contacts for quality printed photos. She is truly a professional who makes you feel comfortable every step of the way. She never hesitated to ask if I felt comfortable or if I needed anything. The photos turned out better then I could ever imagined, she has an eye for beauty. I was able to choose if I wanted photos posted or totally kept to myself. In the future I will hire Paige for any of my photo needs as well as recommend her to all of my friends"
Well, let's dive in shall we?! I worked for over five years on a sexual assault crisis line as well as in person support groups. It was through this experience that I was able to not only observe the resilience and fire in survivors, but I was also able to cultivate strong trauma informed, anti-oppressive and inclusive frameworks which truly guide most of what I do in both my personal and professional life. These skills are utilized in my sessions, especially boudoir, when it comes to empowerment, self-care, body love, client comfort and boundary setting.
The studio sessions are intentionally 90-120 minutes long so that you have time to settle into the experience and also so that you have time for outfit changes if this is something you wish to do.
You and I are the only two people in the studio (unless you are doing a couples boudoir shoot), therefore you don't need to worry about anyone else interrupting the magic you are creating.
We work together on documenting your connection with your body in a way that feels right for you. For most folks, connecting with their body does not come easily and that is where I come in. I am there as your empowerment coach to provide feedback and suggestions throughout the session if this is something you would like.
Unless you like connecting in silence, we rock out to jams that make you feel the most empowered and sexy.
It is totally normal to feel this way! In fact, most folks do. Don't fret, I will be with you every step of the way to guide you through this process to make it as carefree, stress free and fun as possible! If it would make you feel more comfortable to have a phone or video chat beforehand, then let's do it! But I will tell you this, every single one of my clients who have felt nervous and awkward beforehand, left the session feeling f*ing fabulous!
As much or as little as you want!
I have had clients wear only their favourite pair of underwear and others who felt the most comfortable wearing their partner's shirt slightly off the shoulder! When we chat, I will give you a list of fun ideas that have worked well in the past and you can choose what feels right for you :)
There are no expectations to get hair and make-up done, especially if your feel the most beautiful rocking your natural look.
However, if you do wish to have your hair and makeup done, please do this prior to the session. If you need support in arranging this, I can connect you with a wonderful mobile stylist who will provide a discount for booking a session with me (yes, this makes me feel cool). Please allot 2 hours for this, not including travel time to the studio.
If you desire to orders prints or an album to curate your boudoir collection, I am LIVING FOR THIS! Some folks choose to do this for themselves while others do this for their partner as a gift.
When I deliver your final images in your private online gallery, you will be able to choose if you want to purchase various products including prints and albums from two Canadian vendors who make stunning quality prints and handmade albums. If you order in the first 7 days after receiving your gallery, you will receive a discount!
One thing I stand by during my boudoir photography sessions is consent based practice. This not only comes into play during the session itself but after the fact when your images are delivered to you.
I will not share any images without your consent. If that means no images, then it's no images. Simple as that!
YES! Adventure empowerment sessions are amazing and so so fun. If you're up for some intimate portraits in the great outdoors, let me know and I will send you my list of recommended spots!
My boudoir approach is all about empowerment and self-love. While I will gently retouch images, smooth out rough or flakey skin, remove temporary blemishes, or even permanent scars upon request. I do not, however, make anything "larger or smaller".
After you choose your favourites from your proofing gallery, you will receive your final images within 3 weeks :)
