Preparing for your Session - Mobile, Alabama Boudoir Photographer

There actually isn’t very much you need to do to prepare for your session, but let’s talk about the things that you should do!

  1. Gather your outfits!

This is something I can definitely help with, if needed. You can purchase the personal shopper add-on and save a ton of time OR you can always message me for advice and send me photos of the outfits you’ve chosen to get my opinion. You only need two outfits if you plan to go nude at the end, but three if you are unsure about going nude. My biggest recommendation is to go with different styles for each outfit. Casual (tank top and undies with long socks), a bodysuit, bra and panty sets are the most recommended styles. I prefer that you stay away from baby doll style outfits, but I understand that some women really like that style so I won’t refuse to shoot it. They just really aren’t my preference!

2. Get your fingernails and toenails done!

I do a lot of detail shots, so even if it’s just a little paint, it goes a long way when it comes to all the small details in your images. A lot of women don’t think about this, but I do highly recommend it!

3. If you do not usually spray tan, DO NOT DO IT before your session.

Spray tans are not my favorite thing to photograph to be completely honest. They tend to look very orange and can be very difficult to edit. I much prefer the look of your natural skin in images. If you are used to getting spray tans and prefer the way you look with them then go ahead and do it. However, if spray tanning is not part of your normal routine, you will not like the way your images turn out and I ask that you stay far away!

4. Plan for a long day on the day of your session!

From start to finish, your experience is about a 5.5 hour day. This includes hair and makeup, the session, same day basic edits (skin retouching done on purchased images only), and your same day Viewing and Ordering. It’s best to not make any extra plans the day of your session so that it isn’t rushed!

Things to expect on the day of your session:

Once you arrive to the studio, you will meet me (or my associate photographer, Alma) and my amazing makeup artist Georgette! If I am your photographer for the day, you will most likely also meet my sister-in-law/editor/assistant/social media manager, Ariel. Haha. After meeting all of us, you will sit down and Georgette will get started on your hair and makeup. She will generally ask you colors of your outfits and what kind of makeup look you would prefer (dramatic, natural, or somewhere in-between).

Once that is done, we will go through your outfits to see what looks best and decide which order we want to shoot them it. I also have a client lingerie closet with some options for you as well.

The general flow of a session is that we start off with the least revealing outfit and work our way down with most women going nude for the final outfit change (highly encouraged, but not required)!

After that, you can hang out with us or go get food while we edit (this takes about 1.5 hours).

Once the editing is done, we will view your images in a slideshow and then we will go through and rate them. This helps us get a better idea as to what products/Collection would be the best fit for you!

That’s about it! Nothing too crazy to worry about prior to your session! The most important thing is showing up. If you can do that, you will rock your session no matter what!

The Products We Offer - Mobile, Alabama Boudoir Photographer

We offer so many beautiful products and I just want to tell you a little bit more about them!


Our gorgeous leather albums are the most popular product we offer!

They are beautifully handcrafted with premium leather and thick pages. Our clients love being able to flip through their beautiful albums with ease to be reminded of the amazing self-love experience they had with us.

Not to mention, the quality of the images in the album itself are AMAZING and these albums are built to last a lifetime!

Metal Wall Art

Our metal wall art is the second most popular product we offer and a personal favorite of mine!

The colors of your boudoir images look absolutely stunning on metal. These are a beautiful way to display your favorite image(s).

A lot of women that come to us are worried about hanging boudoir images on their walls, but we give plenty of less revealing images to display on wall art as well.

There is nothing better than waking up and being constantly reminded of the beautiful woman that you are!

Glass or Wooden Heirloom Boxes

These boxes are great if you want loose prints versus a bound album. Our boxes include a few more images than what would be included in an album as well.

Both of the boxes that we offer are handcrafted and are so beautiful!

Our Add-On Products

We offer a few different products that our clients love to add-on to their Collections!

Our Acrylic Block and Bedside Folio are perfect display pieces if you aren’t interested in something as large as our wall art.

We also offer a Calendar and our super adorable Viewfinder (both super popular add-ons)!

Our calendars are super high-quality with thick pages and large images. These aren’t like the calendars you buy from a store!

Quick reminder that you do NOT need anyone to gift these products to. Gift them to yourself! You are worth it!

Busting Excuses - Mobile, Alabama Boudoir Photographer

Top 5 Reasons Women Tell Me They Cannot Book a Boudoir Session:

  1. “I need to lose weight first.”

- First, there is NOTHING wrong with wanting to lose weight and get healthier. However, that does not mean you HAVE to lose weight before doing your boudoir session with us! It is important to love your body every step of the way. It is okay to feel beautiful and confident at ANY size. Don’t let the number on the scale hold you back from doing amazing things! Self-love is a journey and losing weight isn’t necessarily going to cure the way you feel about your body. A boudoir session with us can be a very helpful thing on your journey to self-love.

2. “I don’t have anyone to give the images to.”

-A ton of my clients are either single or divorced. However, most of my clients that are NOT single still tell me that they are doing this more for themselves than their significant other. A boudoir session if more than just a gift to someone else. It is a gift to YOU. I encourage all of my clients to come into this for themselves first and anyone else second. Does a beautiful leather album make a wonderful gift? Absolutely! The gift is being able to flip through that album and reminding yourself that you are a BEAUTIFUL GODDESS THAT DESERVES EVERYTHING GOOD IN LIFE. It is time to celebrate YOU.

3. “I don’t look like the women on your website/portfolio.”

-Do you know how many of my clients have told me this EXACT same thing? Almost ALL of them. I guarantee you will look and feel exactly like the clients in my portfolio if you give us a chance. I shoot women of all sizes and ages! I’ve had clients in their 60s who have NEVER done anything like this in their life come out feeling amazing. My clients are every day women just like you that just so happened to trust us!

4. “I’m not confident enough for something like this.”

-That’s exactly what we are here for! Confidence isn’t needed to book your boudoir session. Confidence comes AFTER your boudoir session. Life is about taking chances and stepping out of your comfort zone. You don’t have to have ANY experience with posing or makeup or anything like that. We take care of hair and makeup and I guide you through every single pose during your session. You don’t have to worry about a single thing because we are here to make sure you look your absolute BEST!

5. “It’s too expensive.”

-This one we hear a LOT. I get it. I do. An experience like this is definitely an investment. There are PLENTY of cheaper photographers out there, but when booking a session such as boudoir, this is not something you want just any photographer doing for you. I cannot tell you how many times that I have had women come into my studio and tell me about previous horrible experiences that they have had or family members have had with cheaper boudoir photographers. I have specialized in boudoir for 3 years now. Boudoir is literally the ONLY thing I have photographed for THREE years and my associate photographer is trained by me (and I only hire the best), so we’ve GOT YOU. We know what we are doing and we will make sure that you feel truly beautiful and confident after a session with us. INVEST IN YOURSELF, LADIES. You cannot put a price tag on self-confidence. We also offer a few ways to make this experience more affordable. We offer pre-session and post-session payment plans as well as accept PayPal Credit.

"Cheyanne and her whole team are amazing.

They make you feel comfortable right off the bat. Like it's no big deal to look sexy in front of a camera. It was a big deal to me.

Over the years of gaining weight from 2 babies I had lost my self-confidence. I would workout for a little while and find some but it never lasted.

A few years back I had been doing really well and was at a good place physically. Then pain struck and within 2 weeks I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was chair bound for 6 months. I lost so much weight. All the muscles I worked so hard to get, were gone. Atrophied. After getting my meds right I went into remission. Thank God!

I was able to work out again. But I also ate too much and gained a lot. Having my shoot got my confidence back on track. I was shocked when I viewed my pictures. It didn't even look like me.

Cheyanne is so talented and will not ever pose you in any pose that's less than flattering. I cannot wait to do another shoot and add to my collection. I had a blast!"

Miss L's Boudoir Session - Mobile, Alabama Boudoir Photographer


All of my life, my family has preached that the smaller the body, the prettier the girl. I grew up knowing I was beautiful, but always if I lost a little weight. I grew up never feeling like I was enough. I'd never be skinny enough, and if I wasn't skinny enough, I'd never be pretty enough.

I had finally found a place in my life where I felt beautiful. I was a full-figured teen mom of twins. But at 20, I had my third child and it all came back. My body was gone! I'd have an 11lb baby, lose the weight, finally be getting happy with myself and I'd get pregnant again. I have never been the size I am now until I had my 5th unplanned child and I was too tired to jump in the gym and lose all the weight again. I mean, I have already done this 3 times. I was tired.

Now, I'm a bigger full-figured mom of five kids at the age of 26. I'm bigger now than I have ever been. There was like a year and a half I didn't go anywhere. I did most of my shopping online.

About 8 months ago, I joined Cheyanne's group and I wanted to do it but I put it off saying "maybe when I lose my weight" or "where would I get the money for this?" Well, a few months ago, I saw she was doing a promotion and I was like "well, I can go and do it and I don't HAVE to buy any pictures". I thought it'd be fun and get me out of my comfort zone. Ya' know, rock things up a little.

I was so scared the day I went to take them. I thought so many times about backing out, but with the encouragement of my husband and mother, I was there doing it. I went in and got my hair and make up done and was just chatting with everyone. I almost forgot I was there to do the pictures and then it came down to it and it was a breeze. I wasn't self-conscious anymore.

Cheyanne made me feel really comfortable, gave me breaks when needed, and didn't laugh as my whole body shook trying to hold a pose. When I saw them for the 1st time, I was with my husband. I think I was more scared to look at them than I was to take them, but it wasn't what I expected. I almost cried when I saw my pictures. I didn't see what everyone else saw. I didn't see a fat and disgusting naked girl like I thought I would.

I saw beauty. It was like seeing myself for the 1st time ever!

I went there that day, like I said, not thinking I'd buy any pictures, but I ended up buying the Silver Collection plus 5 extra images in my album! It was the 1st time I have had photos taken of myself that I thought were truly beautiful. So, to me, it was so worth it because I went in that day thinking I was NOTHING and left feeling like the most BEAUTIFUL person in the world and that is all thanks to Cheyanne and her team!

They are the most down to earth, easy going, real life people just like everyone else! They went above and beyond for me that day and made me see myself in a whole new light!
