Sense & Sensuality- Boudoir


(/ˈbo͞oˌdwär/) – a woman’s private sitting room or salon in a furnished accommodation, usually between the dining room and the bedroom, but can also refer to a woman’s private bedroom.

Sense & Sensuality to me means intelligence, creativity, beauty, and strength. Sensuality has historically been used interchangeably with sexuality. But the more evolved intellectual woman understands it as a mindset. Sensuality is about paying attention to your senses – taste, touch, sight, sound, and smell – being present – and engaging in creative thinking.

A “boudoir” in essence is a retreat – a space for a woman – this is what I create in my studio.  A safe space for women to be photographed as the works of art and life that they are – a place they can feel free to show their softness, humor, beauty, and strength.

I created Sense & Sensuality Boudoir to celebrate women and all that comes with us.  We are really quite amazing creatures.  Taking nothing away from men because we love men – but let’s really give ourselves due honor – we do some really badass stuff and the men in our lives love us for it!  

My style of boudoir photography is simple, elegant, and artistic.  My approach to your session is to create images that you will want to adorn the walls of your boudoir with wall art exhibiting your beauty and strength.  I strive to create artwork – not a centerfold.  

Your boudoir session fee is $400, and includes:

  • 90-minute professional hair and makeup session while you relax and indulge with a beverage and other delectables of your choice;
  • 90-minute photo session styled specifically for and with you;
  • Exclusive Reveal Session;
  • One 8×10 printed image matted and mounted; and
  • Other little surprises. 

I suggest you plan on having a night out with your special someone or the girls after your session because you will look and feel amazing!

If you are 40 years or finer, you will also be interviewed and included in a magazine that I’m creating and featured on my website – for more information – go to Bold Brave and Badass Project!

For my 30th birthday, I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone, do something different to celebrate who I have become – do something for me. I approached Cathleen with the idea of a boudoir session. What I experienced far exceeded my expectations. Cathleen made me feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. I had so much fun! I was giddy during my reveal session, and when I received my album, I was brought to tears. The attention to detail was so moving. I could not believe it was me. I felt empowered, beautiful, radiant, and strong. My album will forever be a timeless treasure and a constant reminder of what is possible when I choose to step into my femininity and strength.
