EXPERIENCE

the boudoir

This boudoir photoshoot experience was designed specifically for you. Anything you're worried about, we've already got it covered. Anything you've been dreaming up for your session, we can make it happen. 

Every session begins with a creative collaboration so you and I are on the same page before your session begins. I send each of my clients an extensive preparation guide to walk you through the months & weeks leading up to our time together. I also have you share your ideas, concerns & vision with me via a questionnaire and a mood board, both of which will guide the creative direction of your session.

On the day of your session, you will receive professional hair & makeup. Every artist I work with is well versed in all skintones & hair textures to create a look that enhances your natural features, rather than overshadows them. The end result is soft & glowy skin, accentuated eyes & cheekbones & typically loose waves in the hair. 

Your session is 90 minutes long, which is enough time for a minimum of three looks. Throughout the entirety of the session, I will be giving you extensive guidance on both your posing & your facial expression. You won't have to know how to position your body, or what to do with your hands or how to "smize." I have a pocket full of tricks to make it all look much more natural than it feels.

After your session, I will send you out to lunch for 90 minutes. After lunch, you get to come back & see your images the same day.

 At your image reveal we'll go through your gallery together, walk through product & upgrade options & if you've purchased an album we will design it together. 







THE MAGIC OF A BOUDOIR SESSION

Full Service & Tailor Made

Not only am I pulling creative inspiration from fine art, fashion editorials & all the nuanced variations of sunlight, I'm pulling inspiration from you. I'll be watching the way you naturally move, taking note of how your energy translates visually & keeping in mind any stories you've shared with me.

Inspired

The whole session, I'm putting myself in your shoes. Rather than just directing you into a pose, I'm on the floor or bed or wall *showing* you what I'm looking for. 

Involved

Don't like a pose? You can ask for a new one. Have an idea that feels a litttttle crazy? Let's try it & see what happens. Your comfort is my number one priority & I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you are thrilled with your final gallery. 

Client-Centered

my BOUDOIR shooting style

Appropriately nicknamed "The Dollhouse," our photo studio is actually the oldest house in a historic Norfolk, Virginia neighborhood, fully restored to her 19th century glory.

The Dollhouse is filled to the brim with charming old-world touches such as a freestanding tub, several decorative fireplaces & an abundance of natural light streaming through massive windows. 2200 square feet of space allows us to have several dedicated shooting spaces, including a bright, antique-style bedroom, and a studio room outfitted with hand painted backdrops.

 More importantly: The Dollhouse has a beautiful, deeply feminine presence to her that is perfect for the work that we do here.

Creating Sacred Space

-J.

"Seriously, do it for yourself you will look back one day in your 80s and remember that you loved yourself enough to take a day and document it"

-R.

"When I saw my pictures, they were so beautiful that I couldn’t believe it. I felt like this was such a cool experience to show me how lovely I am! I was at a loss for words when I saw what we had created."

-L.

"I knew going in I would be pretty comfortable with the flow of things but you guys made me feel like such a super star and so valued as a woman. I have never been so comfortable before and felt so beautiful."

-E.

"The session and images surpassed every expectation I had. We not only attempted every concept I hoped for, but executed them better than my inspiration pictures."

-K.

"Daytona and her team made me feel so naturally beautiful. Even the flaws I thought I had seamed celebrated and it was so fun! I wish I could pay for every woman to have this experience!"

-C.

" I was excited but also worried that I had set too high of expectations and as a result would be disappointed. Not the case, I’m still 100% hyped up and sooooo in love with them/myself!"

-K.

"I really tried to keep an open mind when doing this boudoir session. I expected a fun day of feeling confident and being guided by Daytona. She exceeded all expectations and I was so stunned at how beautiful the images came out.

-N.

" I felt like a Goddess during my session and the quality/styling of the photos are stunning"

-H.

" Shooting with Daytona is like jumping into a cold river, then being wrapped in a warm blanket. It’s equal parts refreshing and invigorating, comforting and soothing. She finds what you need from yourself and pulls it out of you one beautiful image at a time. 

-A.

From booking to receiving my photos, Daytona made this entire process an absolute breeze. Don’t worry about finding the perfect outfit or feeling uncomfortable, in fact, don’t worry about anything. You are in such good hands.

There is power in holding a tangible piece of your divine, feminine legacy in your hands. The feeling of seeing yourself, radiant & confident & glowing, in print is something that a digital file on your phone will never be able to imitate. From museum-grade prints from  Tenessee, to leather wrapped albums from Portugal, our offerings have been meticulously curated over the years to create an unrelenting emphasis on heirloom quality.
