Alive Again | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

boudoir photography portland oregon

I LOVED working with Jeanne. She was so spunky and up for anything. At age 63, Jeanne was my most mature boudoir client (so far), and she absolutely rocked it! Jeanne has 5 sisters and she said she’s the tame one of the bunch. I NEED them to come in for a sister’s shoot because that would just be a blast.

“After spending a long time fighting breast cancer, I wanted to feel alive again.   I wanted to feel beautiful – inside and out.   I was sure I was not photogenic, but hey, I would give it a try.   Wow!   What a surprise!   Rayleigh has been blessed with an amazing ability to find your inside beauty and reflect it on your outside.   The shoot itself was special.   Stephanie did a super awesome job on my makeup and hair; and Rayleigh made me feel as if I was in my own home.   She is so focused on what and how to look your best, that there is absolutely no awkwardness to it at all.   She is not only professional, but quite personable.   In a word, the shoot was just fun; and the final product was simply beautiful.   She found my smile and my inner beauty, something I had not seen in a very long time.   And I didn’t even know I looked that good.   It’s amazing as women we will spend money on our partners, on our kids, on our pets, on vacations, on anything but ourselves.   My experience with Rayleigh was worth a lifetime of vacations; and I have the photos to remember it by.   I would highly recommend that every woman invest in this special gift of Photography by Rayleigh.”   –Jeanne

Apple Strudel | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

Meet Kathrin.   She is from Germany and was such a joy to work with. Her and her husband were so kind. They own a German bakery in Portland. When Kathrin came to my studio for her shoot, she brought me some apple strudel. OH. MY. GOODNESS! It was like eating a piece of heaven. I really need to make a trip over to their bakery for another! Kathrin wrote me a really nice review on Yelp.com.   This is what she said…

I just finished my boudoir photo shoot with Rayleigh and I have to say it was a lot of fun. I want to do a photo shoot for a long time, but you need the right person to take your picture. I’m very pleased with Rayleigh. she gave me the confidence i needed. she guided me in the right moments. i’m not perfect, but if you see the picture in the end, it feels like maybe i em perfect.   i’m very proud of my pictures.

Kathy had a bunch of gorgeous images from her shoot but I wanted to just quickly share a couple of them with you. This is what Kathy had to say about her shoot.

 

I recently did a boudoir photo shoot with Rayleigh to get pics for my hubby’s birthday. Rayleigh made me feel very comfortable during the shoot and I had a great time. The pictures turned out wonderful and hubby couldn’t be happier. Thank you!

Guns & Pearls | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

One thing that can make your boudoir shoot truly unique is to bring props that are personal to you or your man. Angie brought in her man’s guns for her shoot. It was fun coming up with unique poses that could incorporate the guns. Plus, the guns made Angie look bad-a$$ sexy, don’t you think?

Modest Boudoir | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

When you have a boudoir shoot done at my studio, you can choose how revealing you want your images to be. For those who are more shy or modest, the wardrobe can consist of things like t-shirts, tanks, and even hoody sweatshirts. You certainly don’t have to bare all to be beautiful or sexy.

“The book has arrived and it looks beautiful….I love the quality and workmanship. I also like that the colors are a tiny bit more vibrant than on our preview photos. Its just such a nice gift for a hubby! It was such a rainy day when I went out to the mailbox (which is usually filled with bills) so it was a real treat to get something good…and sassy! I just loved everything! ” –Robin
