Hey there, the name's Ashley. I'm a wild woman at heart, and there is nothing that I love more than a new adventure. My journey began long ago when I became a wife and mother, Working tirelessly around the clock, I lost myself and my self-confidence. let me tell you how long it took me to say, "I am beautiful." It took years to be at peace with my self-image. I have always struggled with my appearance. I have since realized how much I love what my body is capable of; the real beauty lies beneath any self-perceived flaw. Becoming a boudoir photographer, I bottled up my self-love journey, and I want to share it with everyone. I understand the pain of not feeling comfortable in your own skin. But let me tell you how awesome it feels once you find self-acceptance and freedom. A newly found freedom and peace brings such refreshment to our everyday life. I want every woman to feel that liberation from self-doubt. Let me be your guide to your new beginning.
WHY BURGH BABES BOUDOIR?
Through my past struggles with confidence, I know what it is like to walk in your shoes. Trash your negative thoughts. With me, I want you to celebrate who you are. I provide a no-judgment zone where you can let go and have fun. Think you are not good enough? I think you are perfect just the way you are. Have some fun at the studio, and leave your worries at the door!
MY DIFFERENCES FROM THE OTHERS:
Boudoir is a very intimate genre of photography. The whole process might seem nerve-racking, but here at Burgh Babes Boudoir, you are more than just a pretty picture. Your nervousness will disappear, and you will transform into a stunner. Feeling beautiful from the inside is what it is all about.
HOW DOES THIS ALL WORK?
> Your Experience takes place at my studio, located in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, PA at 11am (varying times accepted upon request)
> Professional hair and makeup, is done by one of our amazing artists. This takes 45min -1 ½ hours.
> As you are getting dolled up, you will be pampered with your favorite wine, or beverage of your choice, along with a yummy snack, and your favorite music playing in the background.
>The experience is 1.5 - 2 hours, with 3-4 outfit changes.
It is OKAY if you did not bring that many outfits, you will also have full access to our client closet!
>Options include our bed Sheet set, peacock chair set, Blue velvet settee set, clawfoot tub set, green velvet bench set and our replicated shower set.
>We will end your session with an empowering wet T-shirt set (tank-top provided by us)
>After booking your shoot, be sure to check your email, as we will send you multiple guides to help you fully prepare for the day of your session.
>Our personal favorite is the Client Questionnaire. We love when you fill this out and give us an idea of what you are expecting, and a little bit about who you are!
You will arrive at our studio at 11am and will immediately start hair and makeup. I will stay and chat for a little bit, get to know you a little more, joke around with you and find out what your expectations are for the day. Then we will take a look at what you brought, and coordinate your outfits for the Experience.
Then the fun begins!!! And do not worry about a thing, while we understand nerves are a huge part of this Experience, they will melt away in no time! You do not need to come in and stress about posing, or even how to breathe. I will go over all of that at the beginning of your session and will guide you throughout the session, from your head, all the way to your toes! I will even show you how to pose!
Once the fun is over, I send you off for a lunch and begin editing your images for an hour. When you come back, we go through your images and pick out the best ones from your session. This is the hard part!! We love them all!
After final enhancements have been done, we will begin your reveal. This is the best part of the whole experience!! You finally get to see yourself in a way you forgot. We love watching you sit there, while going through the slideshow, and go “Oh my gosh! Is that really ME?”
After your initial slideshow, I will help you select your final images and help you build your album, or select images for wall art.
