What Is Boudoir?

   The wardrobe tradition associated with boudoir centers around lingerie and removing it. However this is changing as boudoir becomes ever more popular. If you’re not a lingerie person, bring oversized shirts, satiny bedsheets, fuzzy or fur blankets, a sheer robe, bridal veil, latex, leathers, go nude or even a Chewbaca costume! …I’m kidding – kinda. But you get the point. …But if you are willing to come as a nude Twi’lek for a session with blacklight or UV body paint, I WILL waive your photo session fee – That will be too much fun!  I do love styled shoots, so if you have an idea, send it my way. If you need more pointers, try our free outfits guide or any of the merchants listed in our FAQ section. They have enormous selections to choose from for almost every need or body. There are also local costume stores that are open year round with an amazing assortment of ideas…
     Boudoir is about you being you, so whatever outfit makes you feel ravishing, sexy, and confident, that’s your best option. We’ll help with the rest.

Why Boudoir?

     I began photographing nude models for local jewelers & clothing designers on tropical islands. All of these models shared your insecurities (Am I beautiful? Am I pretty? Will anyone love me?). When I asked why they asked to shoot nude, they explained how liberating it was for them to undress in front of the camera for a shoot, and how excited they got when they saw their final photos, and how liberating the experience was. I’ve seen this time and again with models from all walks of life, whether shooting for their first time or their hundredth-plus. I realized these were joyful moments that every woman should experience, free of shame or judgment. Every woman, of every age, wants validation. Boudoir is also a way to reconnect with yourself free of condemnation or hurtful criticism. These sessions are also a great relationship builder: with yourself, and with your spouse.

    You were born in this skin, this body. God gave it to you for a purpose and a journey. Enjoy your body, purpose, & your journey.  Leave a boudoir session with AEllis a new woman, reborn, fresh, confident, & ready to slay!

From mild to wild, leather to lace, beach or studio, & everything in between.

Where will my boudoir session take place?

      The majority of our sessions take place at the beach or in a local studio. We have multiple sets to choose from and is decided during your no obligation booking consultation. Your hair and makeup is done right on location before we shoot. There are some clients who would like to shoot in a hotel. If that is the case, please let AEllis know which hotel you are considering. The client is responsible for booking the hotel room. We often travel for boudoir sessions and would love to chat with you. AEllis can also come to you, “on location” at your home or other site, wherever you are most comfortable.

      Our Gallery of Boudoir includes some samples of styles and past work to spark your imagination for your own sessions. I also have a few past clients’s albums that they have offered to share with you free of censorship in addition to the samples in our galleries to help you know what you can expect. Keep in mind that styles change and evolve over time like any other personal taste, so if you have something specific in mind, please bring it to AEllis’s attention during your phone consultation to plan accordingly.

Artist AEllis June 2021 at Laguna Beach Gallery


Photographer and creator of Seaside Boudoir.

We have a lot in common: romantics, detailists, and seekers—searching for something more: a challenge, a chase, a glamorous feat. My life and my work have been driven by this search for inspiration, beauty.

I’ve spent years capturing life’s unguarded moments and chasing beauty across the world. During that time, stories like yours have become my inspirations. Today, I help women like you celebrate special moments and milestones with dazzling photography and striking heirloom print products for your walls and home. Photography with meaning, that capture fleeting moments, and oft soon forgotten details for you to share with future generations. And I am as committed to your experience taking those photographs as I am to my art.

My free time is spent with the ocean, chocolate, writing, or creating fine art as well as capturing your beauty to last.
