Meet your boudoir photographer

Hello, I'm Colleen and it's lovely to meet you! I absolutely love what I do!! It's my passion to help women feel confident, sexy, strong and feel empowered in their own skin. I have been specializing in boudoir for four years and I am so thankful to have worked with so many incredible women.

 

I found boudoir photography when I decided to shoot my own session. The process of shooting my own session at the time was comical but I absolutely fell in love with boudoir. I felt so sexy, and that is not a word I would have used to describe myself! At the time, over five years ago I was an overworked mom of 3, slaving away in my 9-5 job, feeling like I had lost who I was somewhere in the grind of trying to raise a family. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my husband and kids. But I was so busy working, hustling, being a mom, a wife, keeping the house, oh and the dog, that I had forgot who I was. She got lost in the daily grind. The woman who is feminine, beautiful, creative, sexy, and sensual needed to be found again.

 

But let me tell you, once I found her -that missing part of me- I never lost her again.

 

Maybe you are searching for something. Maybe you've lost who you are. Maybe you're ready to embrace the sexy, sensual, feminine side of yourself. Maybe it's time to put down all those titles that you carry and remember who you are.

 

I am thrilled that you are interested in a boudoir session! I hope that this information will help you understand the boudoir experience we offer at Colleen Michelle Boudoir Studios.

XOXO

Colleen

"It’s totally normal to feel butterflies of excitement and the nerves of showing off your stuff in a photoshoot, especially if you've never done this before (like me!). Colleen made it easy with showing off the pose before getting into it. Don’t hesitate to experience this! I came out of this experience falling in love with my curves."

What if I don't look like the women on your site?

The women you see on my site and my socials are every day women. For a lot of them, this was their first time doing a boudoir session, unless they came back for their second or third session. These women were nervous, self conscious, had butterflies before their session but they were willing to do it scared. And guess what? They felt absolutely incredible!!

 

I have no idea how to pose. Will you help me?

Babe, that is why you are working with me!! I will demonstrate every pose myself first so you just get to watch me and copy me. I try to make it super easy!!

What do I wear?

First of all, this is one of the most commonly asked questions so don't worry babe, I've got you! First of all, we'll be sending you tons of info on how to prep for your session, what to do and what not to do (yep there are some things you shouldn't do before your session!!). You will be getting our full Boudoir Prep Guide. It includes the lingerie we recommend for your session, our top places to shop and even includes my Amazon list of great lingerie pieces. This info is so helpful if you want to do all your own shopping and splurge on lingerie.

Your second option is to use the Client Closet. Our Client Closet is stuffed full of lingerie looks in all different colors, sizes and shapes. We have lingerie from size XS to 4X available for you to use at your session. We have all the lingerie in the Client Closet saved on a couple of Instagram highlight reels, so go check that out @colleenmichellestudios to see all the lingerie. We also have the white tanks for the wet set in all different sizes.

We always get some questions about the Client Closet. Every piece is washed in hot with laundry sanitizer. I also have every client wear a sanitizing liner (like when you try on swim suits) in the lingerie. Every piece of lingerie that is either worn or tried on gets laundered.

The Client Closet is there for you to use!! Some clients will use the Client Closet for all of their looks, some will use it for a couple and some clients won't use it at all. Whatever you want to do to feel sexy and confident in your lingerie looks is great with us!!

Is hair & makeup included?

Absolutely yes hair and makeup is included with your boudoir session! Let me start by saying that makeup is not needed for anyone to look beautiful, and truly there are more days I spend bare faced than with makeup on. However, for your boudoir session we want you feeling confident, sexy and your absolute best. Our makeup artists arrive at the studio with a complete makeup kit to match any skin tone and complete the look you are wanting for your session.

How much editing do you do?

My goal is always to keep you looking like you. For the majority of our clients that means a bit of skin smoothing, blemish removal, butt acne removal (yep it's a thing we see all the time and it's not a big deal), smooth tan lines, soften fine lines and wrinkles. We polish up the images just a little. We can upon request do further editing and remove things such as stretch marks, cellulite, scars, etc. If you prefer more edition, then just let us know.

Where is the studio located?

We are located in Franklin, Tennessee just outside of Nashville.

Are you a VIP babe?

Join our tribe of amazing women who are dedicated to encouraging each other, having a good time, and talking about all things boudoir.

"Before my session, I wasn't as confident because I had gained 5 pounds in the past couple of months. Once I started doing the poses and saw what Colleen captured, I had so much more confidence doing each pose. At the end of the shoot, I fell in love with myself and everything about my body."

I was really nervous and insecure. Colleen was very good at making me comfortable throughout the process. When we started the shoot and she’s showing me the pictures, I was in awe. I didn’t know I could smile like that. I didn’t know I can pose like that. I didn’t think I would be able to see myself like that in my lifetime. So grateful!
