Confidence | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

Meet Mrs. Smokin’ Hot.   She booked a shoot with me because she wanted to give her husband an amazing gift for their anniversary. They will be starting a family soon so she also just wanted to do something sexy and fun for herself. Mrs. Smokin’ Hot totally rocked her shoot and I adore her photos.

I asked Mrs. Smokin’ Hot about her shoot and here are her responses.

What do you love about your body?
I like that I’m pretty fit and busty.

How do you feel about your body?

Did this experience change the way you see yourself or the way you think of beauty?
It made me realize beauty doesn’t have to be over the top sexy, just yourself is enough

What does “sexy” mean to you?
Sexy means being confident in yourself and comfortable with your own body

What did you love about your shoot? Will you come back some day for another shoot?
I love that she gave me direction for poses because I had no idea what I was doing

How did you feel about being nearly naked in front of the camera?
I was nervous at first, but once we got started I didn’t care, I felt sexy and wanted to capture that moment

Lace bra and panties

An Amazing Experience | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

Angela and Brandi are best friends and they did their shoots back to back. When my clients do that, it always feels like a party, which is so much fun.   Here is what Angela had to say about the shoot. “Rayleigh was great. It was an amazing experience. It’s something I wouldn’t have typically done. But I saw the living social deal and thought I would give it a try. I recommend her to anyone looking for photography.”

My Favorite Booty Shot | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

Here is what Christine had to say about her shoot.   “I had the pleasure of working with Rayleigh for my boudoir photography session. She was very professional and made me feel comfortable during my session. She had many wonderful ideas for poses and different looks and kept my session flowing smoothly.   My husband and I were so impressed with the photographs, it was hard to choose which pictures we wanted in our album. The pictures were all beautiful and Rayleigh did an amazing job!!   We would highly recommend Rayleigh, she is an exceptional photographer.”

I absolutely love this booty shot.   That stunning corset and those cute frilly panties look so great.   I’ve used this shot in a number of advertising pieces.   I’m so glad Christine was comfortable sharing her photos with the world wide web.

50th Birthday Gift | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

I just wanted to share a couple of photos from Michelle’s shoot.   This is what Michelle had to say about her shoot.   “Rayleigh is a wonderful photographer! I am one of those people who hates having my picture taken because I usually hate how they come out. I LOVED my pictures! They were fantastic! These pictures are a surprise birthday present for my husbands 50th birthday. I can’t wait to see his face. He is going to love them too! The shoot was very fun & relaxed. I highly recommend anyone considering having boudoir pictures taken to contact Rayleigh.”

Cherry On Top | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

Angel and Sylvia are best friends and they came in for their shoots on the same day.   A shoot is so much fun all by itself but imagine how much more fun it could be to share the experience with a good friend!

This is what Angel had do say about her shoot.   “Working with Rayleigh was a great experience.   She was prepared and welcoming.   She provided us with refreshments and made us as comfortable as possible.   Her studio is comfortable and she was a joy to be photographed by.   Her products are high quality and worth the money! She also went above and beyond by adding a special gift with my purchase, which was a very nice surprise and a cherry on top of a great experience.   I highly recommend her for your next photo shoot or fun activity with your best friends!”

Girls Day Out | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

I had so much fun during Marie’s shoot.   Marie and 3 of her friends all came in together for their shoots and had a girls’ day out.   Boudoir shoots are a blast when done individually, but turn it in to a girls’ day out and the shoot becomes that much more fun!

Here is what Marie had to say about her boudoir shoot.

“I did a boudoir photo shoot with three of my friends before Valentine’s Day. It was so fun! I recommend trying it to anyone that asks. We all had a great time and Rayleigh makes you feel comfortable the entire time.   I, myself, am not entirely comfortable with my body (what female is?!), but she helps you pose in such ways that enhance what you like and they turn out amazing! I love the way my pictures turned out (and so does the bf!).   I plan on doing this again next year, as I know my friends are too! Can’t wait!”

I loved working with Marie during her boudoir shoot so I invited her back to be in my promo video for my website.   If you haven’t had a chance to see my video yet, you should definitely check it out!

Staw Hats and Dog Tags | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

Ms L   had a rockin’ bridal boudoir shoot and I absolutely love her photos.   She wanted to keep most of her photos private between her and her husband-to-be.   But she did give me permission to use the “anonymous” shots on my blog.   Those are the shots where you can’t really see her face.   I love shots where you can look in to a beautiful woman’s eyes and see her personality, but there is also a total sexiness to the voyeuristic shots that showcase a sneak peek of a ladies curves.   Her military man is going to love his wedding gift!

Stripped Down Workshop (Model #4) | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

I got to shoot this gorgeous model at the Stripped Down workshop in Las Vegas with Modern Love Photography.   This is the gorgeous, Malia Bisson.   She is a professional model.   Her hair and makeup was done by the talented, Ashlyn Taylor.   It was awesome being able to shoot with the city-scape in the background.   It’s not often that I can shoot boudoir outdoors since it’s hard to find private locations.   And because in Oregon it’s raining so much of the time.   So this was a cool change of scenery.

Stripped Down Workshop (Model #3) | Boudoir Photography Portland Oregon

I’m excited to share more images with you from my Stripped Down workshop in Las Vegas with Modern Love Photography!   We had several models that we got to work with and this model, Lacy, although not a working model, is a boudoir photographer so she was great to work with.   Lacy’s hair and makeup was done by Ashlyn Taylor.   That bright Las Vegas sun made working on the terrace more challenging but it sure made for amazing window light shining indoors.

Terri’s Boudoir Session | Boudor Photography Portland Oregon

I just love Terri’s images.   She reminds me of a Marilyn Monroe with that cute blonde hair.   Her photos look so beautiful and classic.   That white baby doll piece she brought is so pretty.   And I love the hair piece, too.boudoir photography portland oregon

Here is what Terri had to say about her shoot. “I was a little nervous at first to do a photo shoot. Once I met Rayleigh I got over it! She made me feel comfortable and I had fun. My pictures turned out awesome and I would recommend her to anyone. She took charge of different poses and I was very impressed. I can tell she really enjoys what she does! Thank you Rayleigh!

Here is a slideshow of more photos from Terri’s shoot.
