How does a seasoned painter and photographer decide she wants to start a boudoir business? 

My story began after I dedicated years to teaching art in independent high schools and traveling the world during summer breaks, yearning for a bigger creative outlet. In 2017, I was approached by a woman who had seen my portraits. She was fifty-nine, working with a personal trainer, and in the best shape of her life. She wanted to celebrate her hard work and honor who she was at that moment — a sexy, proud, and powerful woman. 

Having always enjoyed helping people feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera, guiding women in a more intimate setting felt like a natural progression. Before I knew it, I was capturing women of all ages and body types, celebrating the season they were in, and leaving them with timeless works of art that would forever honor their story.

Life has an uncanny way of leading you to where you're supposed to be.

If you’re worried about what to wear for a boudoir photography session, we always suggest starting with your own closet first. Contrary to popular belief, boudoir doesn’t have to be confined to lingerie; it can encompass a variety of options like lace, texture fabrics, cozy sweaters, a luxurious fur coat, a sexy dress, or even a sheer scarf. 

While you can bring your own outfits and lingerie, we also offer exclusive access to our Studio Closet, where you can select from a beautiful collection of lingerie (size XS - 5XL), body suits, robes, veils, jewelry, heels, and more

The studio also has a bathroom, private space, and spacious kitchen with espresso drinks and snacks readily available, and free street parking for your convenience.

They all came out beautifully and perfect. Niki captured my story. The innocence in pink. The sweetness in the wings. The bad ass in the black. The sexiness and beauty in all. I cried because all the insecurities I had made no sense. I truly realized I am beautiful, I am sexy, I am amazing. Thank you Niki for making me fall in love with myself."

I cried when I saw my photos. Tears of joy!

From the moment I showed up at Niki's beautiful home I felt cared for, special, doted on and part of the creative process to make my photo shoot everything I had imagined and more. And that was just the shoot itself... the photos - OH MY GOD. Incredible. True works of art, in every way - Niki is an absolute master of her craft. I now have these works of art as a reminder forever of who I am, my inner goddess shining through me on my darkest days. Niki gave me a gift I will never ever let go of.

Working with Niki is like working with a super talented friend and confidant! She explains every step and offers advice, which is so helpful and considerate, especially if you've never done this before. If you're looking for an opportunity to embrace and lift yourself up, to feel liberated, to do something bold and new, and you're looking to do it well...Her Story Images comes HIGHLY recommended! I'm so happy I decided to do this with Niki! The experience was well worth it!
