Why Beauty & Boudoir?

The intent of intimate portraiture can mean different things to different people. For Shira W Rose Studios, it's a movement to reconstruct the beauty & boudoir genre to celebrate and inspire a message of body-positive, self-love & acceptance of all body types. It's a gift for yourself first rather than for another. It is a celebration of you on your terms embracing and even falling in love with those little details you think are flaws, the curves, those tiny imperfections that make you...more beautiful and unique because every ounce of it is you.

Our client is primarily people who are recognizing a transition in their lives. They may be newly partnered, newly single, planning a family, done having children, or are feeling healthy again after illness. They are acknowledging who they are and where they are in their lives right here and right now.

Intimate portraiture is about you embracing you and seeing yourself for the extraordinarily beautiful being that you are today, not 15 pounds from now, not perfect abs from now...just today and now.

What is a session like?

It is Exhilarating! It starts with the preplanning session, discovering your vision, making wardrobe choices & styling ideas to get things rolling. Now I ain't gonna lie, on the day of the shoot, for some it may take a little warming up to get out of our heads and into our bodies. That is short lived, as you begin to feel more comfortable, the beautiful, brave & authentic you is soon revealed. Then we make some magic as we capture the beautiful authentic version of you one image at a time. You will feel amazing, I promise.

what do I wear?

Whatever you want. All sessions include a wardrobe consultation where we will discuss what makes you feel the most amazing. For some, it's silk, others you're favorite oversized off the shoulder sweater, and some want to wear nothing at all. It's whatever makes you feel like the divinely feminine being you are. I will be with you on choosing your wardrobe every step of the way.

Can I just get the digitals?

Digitals and prints are the same price. Each image you purchase comes with its corresponding web-size digital.

Do you only photograph women?

Yes!!! During shoot time, this is a girl only studio. No boys allowed!

Can I bring a friend?

Absolutely!! Girls only, and she must know this shoot is all about you so she must be there to support you!
