    “Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.”





    For some it’s feeling sexy and taking portraits to capture that feeling, for others it’s celebrating personal acceptance for who you are in this moment, and for others is connecting and celebrating your relationship as a couple.

    My goal is to discover what this experience needs to be for you and your partner and be there to guide you through it. This is an opportunity to shed all the layers that society, friends, family, or your own voice says you have to be. During your boudoir experience, you can be whomever you want to be and know that you are in a safe space that holds no judgement.


    Absolutely! Lingerie is not the only way to look and feel sexy. You can do a boudoir shoot wearing a dress, robe, button-up, etc. It really comes down to what makes you feel sexy, empowered, bold, (insert whatever emotion you want to evoke) during your portrait experience. My goal is to find out what that is for you and guide you through the experience.

    Q: Is hair and makeup included?

    Yes, hair, makeup and lash application is included for 1 person. Hair and makeup services are available for an additional cost for another person. 

    Q: Is your studio open to LGBTQ relationships?

    Absolutely!  We believe Love is Love and all couples are welcome in our studio to celebrate their connection and story.

    Q: What if I don’t like my pictures?

    I’m confident that you will be thrilled with your boudoir portrait experience and artwork. However, if for any reason you are unsatisfied, you are under no obligation to purchase any artwork and I’d be happy to do a re-shoot at no cost to you. That’s how  much I believe you will love the photographs, the experience and connection you see in those photographs. I believe wholeheartedly that your artwork will be a celebration of your relationship and will serve as a resounding reminder to you daily!

    Client Testimonials


    “One of the funnest experiences!!

    It’s not everyday that I get to dress up in lingerie, prance around and get hair and makeup like a queen, and have someone photograph me. Carmen is just a ball of energy that makes you feel so comfortable and she just captures the purest, sexiest pictures of you. It’s phenomenal! From the moment you walk into the studio in the morning, you are greeted with a mimosa and then whisked away to hair and makeup. The whole day was just so fun. Word of advice – make the day all about you! You will be on such a high. Plan an evening with your significant other or just take yourself out on the town. You’re going to look amazing and feel amazing, and have so much fun!”

    Miss M

    “Doing a photo session was definitely outside of my comfort zone, but something I so needed.

    I was so excited that I did and I hope more ladies have the opportunity to do it. Don’t get into your head too much. There’s that little voice that tells you that you don’t look good – tell them to be quiet! These ladies made me feel so beautiful. They took their time with me and made the day about me. They played my favorite music (Bon Jovi!) and I had mimosas! It was so much fun and 100% worth it! I have definitely learned a lot about myself through this experience and am incredibly grateful that I did it.”

    Miss L

    “I ended up doing a boudoir session with Carmen because I was going through a huge transition in life.

    I was getting ready to retire, start a new job – a lot was changing. I happened to be in California and I wanted to work with her. When I got to the studio it was this bright warm welcome. We had a blast just laughing and taking these shots in the most natural ways. I enjoyed her personality and humor that we found in some of the most hilarious parts of my shoot. If you are contemplating doing any kind of boudoir I highly recommend Carmen. We had such a good time and she will make you feel like the goddess that you are! It is worth the experience overall to feel your very best self.”

    Client Transformations


    You’re probably someone who cares for so many others in your life. You make sure everyone you love has their needs provided for, while trying to squeeze in a little ‘me’ time…if that’s even in the realm of possible. You are the first to show up for others but very rarely take the time to prioritize your own needs.

    Girl…don’t you think it’s time to put you FIRST?!

    Let us help you create a transformational couples boudoir experience that will reinforce the beauty of your connection and relationship with each other!

    “At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet”


    Your Sacramento Couples Boudoir Studio + Team

    Our couples boudoir studio is an all female, non-judgmental and body positive environment where couples can feel comfortable and excited about exploring and celebrating who they are through photography. We care deeply that every couple feels empowered and safe together as we capture your love story, intimacy and connection. We’ll reach out to you before your session to get to know you and understand what aspects of each other and your relationship you both are excited about capturing in your session together.

    We’ve captured many couples – all of whom have a unique story – but together share in the sense of empowerment, vulnerability and rejuvenated connection after their portrait experience. It is such an honor and gift to be in the presence of such feminine greatness and to celebrate it. We can’t wait for you to be next!


    Owner + Artist

    Lover of design, dogs, donuts and dancing. You and I will laugh together, maybe cry together, for sure roll around on the floor doing sexy poses together. Basically, we’ll be best friends by the end of the day.
