BE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF.
You’ve heard the term “Boudoir Session”, but what exactly IS a boudoir photography session? Should you get one done? A boudoir session is a photography shoot where you wear sexy outfits, lingerie, dresses, or even go scantily clad. You'll love getting your tasteful, yet sexy and playful photographs taken.
Professional photography, hair & makeup are included - and the professional posing and select retouching of your chosen images - equal some of THE very best portraits of yourself! I often tell my clients to schedule a night out after getting their portraits done, because you will look and feel amazing!
"It was a pleasure working with Jill. She made me feel comfortable and gave me super helpful tips/feedback. She put my mind at ease whenever I started to feel uncomfortable or stressed. She would let me view a few images that not only helped me see her vision (which is amazing!) but gave me the confidence boost I needed. She understands flattering angles and she really works her hardest in capturing images that she know you’ll love."
"I had so much fun at my photoshoot with Jill and makeup artist Jennifer Rao. Her studio is absolutely adorable. Jill & Jennifer are both amazing at what they do and super professional. They made me feel extremely comfortable for meeting them both for the first time whilst stripping down for my first photoshoot ever. Jill is very attentive and informative throughout the whole process, and is great with direction for those girls like me who freeze in front of camera. Everyone should do this at some point even if for no reason but the experience, and to have for yourself."
"I was hesitant at first to do a boudoir shoot since I had just had a baby less than 2 years before the shoot and was not feeling the most confident in my body. However, Jill made me feel (and look) fantastic. It is truly amazing what Jill can do with a camera. Her style is what drew me to her from the start, and that definitely transfers to her boudoir work as well. Her images are always tasteful, yet incredibly sexy. She is a true artist with a passion for her work. I would recommend Jill Markley Studios to anyone in the market for a photographer of any kind, and especially those who are interested in trying a boudoir shoot. You will not be disappointed!"

How do I prepare for my session and what do I need to bring/know?
I assure you this is totally normal. EVERYONE. I mean, EVERYONE. Is nervous for their boudoir session. Rest assured - I will talk you through every pose and all photographs are designed to be alluring and tasteful. You will walk out of the studio thinking - "what was I so worried about? I totally nailed that - can we do another session next week?" Seriously, I have done a boudoir session myself and I was SO nervous, but I am thrilled that I have those photos of myself to look back on. I guarantee you will be so happy that you had the courage to do this session for yourself. Boudoir sessions are extremely empowering and an incredible experience.
I am super nervous/need to lose weight/am unsure if I measure up.
