I'm going to take a wild guess that you spend a lot of time taking care of other people. At the end of the day, you might look back and realize that in the process of making sure everyone else is thriving you forgot about yourself. But to give the best of yourself to the ones you love, you need to love yourself. That's where beauty and boudoir photography comes in.
From the moment we get started, the session is focused on you. It's your time to relax, be taken care of, and be fully present in your own femininity. This is a luxury experience from start to finish, with the goal of giving you not just photos but an entire experience that awakens you to your strength and beauty.
Portrait sessions last 90 minutes and include three wardrobe changes, as well as:
An in-person consultation to dream up your luxury photo shoot
Professional hair styling and makeup application
On-set direction and posing
Retouching and editing of images
A private portrait viewing and ordering session
Session fee is $275 and includes everything listed above. This fee must be paid at the time of booking and is non-refundable.
Portraits are available for purchase separately, and are not included in the session fee.
*Sessions may take place in my Stow, Massachusetts studio. If you would prefer your own home or if you have another location in mind, let's chat! I'm happy to travel within the New England area. Locations outside of Greater Boston will include a travel fee based on mileage.
Just one to two weeks after your photo shoot, you're invited back to the studio to view all of your gorgeous images. You'll choose your favorite images and decide how you would like to keep them, whether as albums, folio boxes, wall portraits, or viewfinders.
Archival Quality Photo Albums come in a variety of colors, are engraved with your name or a custom message, and are custom designed for you. These albums are professionally printed and delivered within 3-4 weeks of your ordering session.
Wall Portraits are professionally printed images with frames and mats.
View Masters are a bit of nostalgic fun. Imagine giving your love one of these childhood toys and the surprise they'll get when they look inside and see your portraits!
Digital images are complimentary with all orders of physical products. Any images included in an archival album, view master, or wall portrait will be provided to the client as a digital image.
Joy made me feel relaxed as soon as we started! We chatted and laughed the entire session like we were old friends. It was a really special and intimate experience and the photos came out so beautifully.
I've worked really hard to get my body the way it is. It's far from perfect, but I AM proud of it anyway. This experience is for anyone who has ever doubted her beauty; who has ever needed to really see herself through a different lens.

These photos show me what exists within. Even though this was an external experience, I was able to go inside and learn some new things about myself. Joy, thank you for that gift. It was life changing for me.
