Photographing women in a close and intimate environment has become a special gift that I love to share with each of my clients. I have photographed over 200 women in the past two years alone and my favorite part about my job is getting to know each one of the ladies I have photographed. The photo boudoir experience is loads of fun. Contact me to find out how I can make smoking hot photos of you.
Some tidbits about Barbara Alessandra:
I believe the fountain of youth is the ocean and I indulge in this element to rejuvenate my mind, body, and soul any chance I get. I also enjoy dancing to loud music with my children and making them laugh until their little bellies ache. I love to pillow chat with my husband in the dark before bed and feel his warm strong cozy body next to mine.
It takes a team to make works of art into reality. Not only do we need the model and photographer, but the styling before the shoot is just as important. Some ladies say, “I still want to still feel like myself” and others say, “I want to look like a totally different person.” I have carefully selected a few hair and make-up artists who know how to enhance your best features. The stylists work with your personality, skin tone, wardrobe options and more to help create the best look for your photo shoot.
There is one more essential part of the final creation of boudoir photography–your images will be handled by a skilled retoucher to polish them up for optimal viewing.
BAP Boudoir Studio
The studios recent renovation has made the interior design appear like a five star posh hotel. Antique furnishing such as an original 1960’s tufted headboard and a mid-century wing-back chair has been reupholstered with white luxurious velvet. Furry bead spreads and gold and cream pillows decor some of the furnishings. A peacock colored velvet chaise lounge chair sits on a contrasted shaggy white carpet. The palette of the studio is neutral with white drapes and sheer curtains except for its very sophisticated vanity area that props against a dark sensual peacock color. Gold accessories are mixed in through out the nooks and crannies of the boudoir while still leaving it feel like an open and airy space. From bed, to vanity, windows, chairs, the boudoir allows for a lot of creative backgrounds. The studio is also equipped with many colored background options too. Barbara Alessandra photo studio clearly makes it a dreamy safe haven for boudoir photography.

I loved my boudoir photo shoot with Barbara. She has a great energy and made me feel comfortable right away. She also told me exactly how to pose and used a couple of different backgrounds for the shoot, including a very cool art studio. The photographs are perfect and look like they could be in a fashion magazine. Barbara is clearly very talented and has a good eye for light and composition. The book I received was very high quality. I also loved the hair and makeup artist Barbara used — I’ve had my hair and makeup done many times and I don’t think it’s ever looked better! The experience itself was a lot of fun and I definitely think it’s worth the investment. I think it’s as much a gift for yourself as it is for your partner, so if you’re hesitating, just do it! – Meaghan S.
Barbara is an amazing and versatile photographer! Every experience I’ve had with her has been great. She’s relaxed, but focused and professional. I first went to her for a boudoir photo session, then hired her for engagement photos. She is now photographing our wedding. I will always recommend her! – Kristine D.
This is my third time working with Barbara and she always manages to surprise me with her amazing work. This time I wanted to get some sexy shots for my 3rd wedding anniversary. I was more than a little skeptical about showing my body, since I had just had a baby 6 months prior. I know she is truly an artist with the camara, but I still didn’t know how my post-baby body would show up in Boudoir portraits. During the shoot, she made the environment super comfortable and I even felt pampered. It was at a beautiful upscale hotel in Hollywood, my make-up was done for me, she made sure to play music that would make me feel sexy and relaxed, and the delcious mimosas didn’t hurt :). So, I took a sip, relaxed and trusted Barbara to do her thing. I’m SOOO glad I did!!. The portraits are BEAUTIFUL!! I had no idea I could look so good in such little clothing!:). My husband loved the pictures and I have photographic proof that I really was a hot mom!:) She was somehow able to capture & highlight the best parts of me, while hiding all those other parts:). Not to menton, Barbara is just an amazing spirit, who is able to make you feel at ease and uplifted. This is definitely an experience I would recommend to all new moms or any woman who needs a little reminder of just how beautiful she really is! – Google Review
