" I love all of the direction Allison provided!"
“I had never done a boudoir shoot before. I felt hesitant at first because I am at times insecure about my weight gain over the years. I decided to do it to help me love and embrace the body I have now. Doing this shoot and seeing myself definitely boosted my confidence and contributed to the building of my love for self.”
"I had a phenomenal experience."
"The make-up and hair artist did an exceptional job as well. I had such a good time with Allison. She made me feel very comfortable and confident. I have already recommended her to my friend and family."
“Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish!”
"Allison is so kind and supportive and made me feel comfortable the entire time :) My photos are so elegant and beautiful and I will cherish them and my time with RB forever! If you are thinking of getting any boudoir images done I strongly encourage that you work with the talented Allison!"
"Allison made this experience absolutely amazing!"
"I was really nervous going in and I ended up laughing and having a blast the entire time! It is the funnest experience ever in my life and I recommend every girl should do this. Not just for your husband or boyfriend, but for yourself!"
Hi, I’m Allison! I’m a professional photographer here in Los Angeles. Not in L.A.? No worries - I also travel and also offer special packages so that you can take that trip you’ve always wanted to take to Los Angeles and do your luxury boudoir session!
I specialize in photographing real women: mothers, sisters, wives, friends, professionals, students, homemakers… You name it. The birth of my first son, which took place at home, radically changed my perception of ALL women. We are so incredibly powerful, but sadly many of us have become blinded to that truth.
The work I do with my clients changes their lives. I care about people, and I care about how people are affected by society. As women, we’re bombarded daily with messages about looks, aesthetics, and everything we should change about ourselves to fit societal expectations.
The women I work with finally feel what it’s like to reclaim their bodies, sexuality, and sensuality so they can finally feel beautiful, sexy, and confident like never before.
Seeing this profound, emotional change is worth EVERYTHING to me!

"I'm so awkward in front of the camera! How will I know what to do?"
One of my favorite things to hear clients say is that I made them feel safe and comfortable. Whether you’re reflecting on an amazing session or fondly looking at a gorgeous photo of yourself in that lingerie set - neither is possible without feeling safe.
I also have a fabulous posing system and will walk you through every pose, including what to do with your hands and feet and even what facial expressions to make. Not having to figure out what to do will help you get your body into a space where you’re feeling your best. You don’t have to do anything else but show up, be pampered, and have fun!
"What about retouching? Are these photos retouched?"
Professional retouching is included with ALL purchases. Many clients choose light skin smoothing and make minor requests to improve their overall portraits. Some clients want more than a light touch-up; others want nothing. Retouching is personal. I think of it as the digital equivalent of makeup.
Some days I wear makeup, and sometimes I don’t, but whether or not I wear makeup has nothing to do with how I feel about myself. I think the same way when it comes to photography. These photos are for YOU - nobody else - so you deserve to have your photos done with the aesthetic YOU like. While I won’t alter you beyond recognition, I’m always happy to discuss what kind of retouching you have in mind.
"Do I have to do my own hair and makeup?"
Nope! I wouldn’t leave you hangin’. I have a fabulous hair and makeup artist who will get you glammed up before your shoot. Or, if you prefer a blowout to hot styling, I offer a complimentary blowout at a salon 5 minutes from my studio in Santa Monica.
"I'd really like to tone up before my boudoir session?"
I appreciate this and respect that you want to look your best for your photoshoot. Sure, being in a consistent workout routine feels AMAZING. Still, I can guarantee that specific lighting and my professional posing guidance will change your photos more than three months of working out.
I encourage working out because it’s good for the body overall, but don’t let your desire to establish a workout routine hold you back from doing the photoshoot YOU want to do. This is the ultimate appreciation of the body you have NOW. Take the leap - do the photoshoot now - you’ll be so thrilled that you didn’t wait.
