Bold & Fierce

BOUDOIR by Vanessa Martins

WHAT BOUDOIR IS ALL ABOUT

Let me give you low down on


I'm passionate about boudoir photography and the power that it holds. Boudoir sessions are empowering, fun, and an absolute must for every woman. I fell in love with boudoir after I walked through my own self love journey. 

I had never struggled with self body image growing up until I became a mom of two beautiful girls, Nicole and Charlotte. My body changed, I had the dreaded "mom pooch" and I couldn't stand to look at myself in the mirror. I found myself with two choices left: forever hate my new "mom bod" or embrace every curve and roll I gained in the process of creating life. I didn't know how I could get to that place of acceptance and self love until I began photographing my client's boudoir sessions. It taught me that rolls, stretch marks, or cellulite are still considered beautiful. I realized there was nothing wrong with my new body and that I didn't need to listen to social media. We are uniquely beautiful, curves and all.

I want you and every woman who walks into my studio to feel welcomed, comfortable, accepted, and to have fun. I love helping women see just how bold, fierce, and beautiful they are. No two women are the same and why should they be? Let's embrace our differences as women and walk together on this journey of self love. Will you join me?

Hey babe!

CLIENT LOVE

I truly can not imagine going through the wedding process with anyone but Vanessa. As you’ve most likely seen from her work she is amazing at what she does, she understands not everyone is comfortable in front of a camera and ultimately makes you forget it’s there. By the end of the session you truly feel like you’ve known her forever. You will not regret making the decision to have Vanessa as your photographer, regardless of the session type. Heck, I drove 12 hours round trip to ensure she was our photographer. She truly cares for each of her clients as if they’re family.

As soon as I walked into the door Vanessa made all my worries disappear. Although this was our first time meeting it felt like we had been friends for years! Not only is she an incredible person, she is incredibly talented. I can't tell you the last time I felt so beautiful. She was right there cheering me on the whole time. This was one of the greatest experiences I've had and as a woman it was so empowering.

After our initial phone consultation I'll send over a contract and invoice to reserve your session date. 

Then it's time to go shopping! You get to choose beautiful pieces for your shoot. Don't worry, I'll send over a guide to help you along the way.

Now the real fun begins! Let's pop some bubbly and get ready to be pampered by the HMUA. You'll be looking like the fabulous babe that you are! 

After you've been pampered, we will begin your boudoir session. I'll coach you through the right poses and guide you through the entire process!

You'll most likely be ready for a lunch or coffee break. Meanwhile, I'll work on your images! After your break, you'll head up back to the studio where I'll reveal your edited images! 

Finally, we'll look at albums, prints, and canvas samples for you to order from!

SESSION DETAILS 

During your boudoir experience I will guide and coach through every pose. I want you to feel comfortable and I get feeling awkward in front of the camera. I've got you babe!

Do I have to pose myself?

My studio is located in downtown McKinney on 101 W. Louisiana St #203, McKinney, TX 75069

Where are you located?

As much as I'd love to share all your gorgeous images I choose to respect the privacy of my clients. Images are only shared with my client's consent. Some love to share it all, some chose to only images without their face, and some prefer to keep it completely private.

Will my images be shared on social media?

Yes, I offer payment plans. Once the retainer fee of $450 is paid we can go over collections and split up the payments. I offer discounts if retainer fee and collection are paid upfront.

Do you offer payment plans?

During your boudoir experience I will guide and coach through every pose. I want you to feel comfortable and I know the feeling of feeling awkward in front of the camera. I've got you babe!
