Why Lush & Lace
The heart, talent and personality that go into Lush & Lace Boudoir Sessions are on a different level from all other types of shoots. This may be because after shooting these sessions for 7+ years, Julie knows that the experience of posing for alluring, sexy, romantic, teasing photos is absolutely unlike posing for any other type of shoot!
Lush & Lace Sessions aren’t only about the combination of planning, wardrobe, styling, and photography with killer images. They’re also a means to empower women to feel sexy, gorgeous, and confident, no matter what shape, size or age they are. But not without a little fun along the way.
As a professional boudoir photographer, Julie will create amazing images all the while making you laugh and feel completely comfortable. “Don’t worry… I will coach you through every move so that you won’t have to worry about the dreaded ‘duck lips’ or feeling awkward in front of the camera!”
Lush & Lace Sessions have the option of including Julie’s hand-chosen team of makeup artists and stylists. “Our team of makeup artists really gets the meaning of “all dolled up”… They have the boudoir look down to a T and they will work with you to create the perfect look.”
Even the most nervous and uncomfortable client will find themselves loving their Lush & Lace sessions. Julie makes it her mission to make you feel comfortable within the first five minutes. “That’s a promise!” she says.
