Because every woman deserves gorgeous photos of herself.
Because it’s absolutely wonderfully insanely confidence inspiring and liberating to participate in.
Because you should love yourself the way you are and accept the way you are today.
Because it’s about celebrating your beauty, whether it’s laughter filled or curvy. Whether you are wearing boy shorts or lingerie or nothing.
Because you should be gentle on yourself for all the time you wish you had to take better care of yourself, but you should be honest with yourself that we are human and busy and perfect as you are.
Because it makes a really amazing Valentine’s gift that’s a treat for you and your partner.
Because every once in awhile, you should celebrate yourself.

Q) What is a boudoir mini-session?
A) A boudoir mini session is a half hour photo-shoot booked on a select weekend. The cost is significantly lower since we book multiple portrait shoots all in one weekend. You book a time slot for your hair, makeup, & photo shoot. The lovely ladies from Tahoe Salon Be will be on-site for professional hair and make-up, to create a look that you love that matches what you’ve brought to wear. We’ll have champagne, mimosas and snacks!
Boudoir photography is a great gift to yourself and your partner, which is why we’re holding this before Valentine’s Day! Often, we get so busy and in such a routine that we forget to take care of ourselves, treat ourselves or feel beautiful.
Q) How do I contact you to book?
A) Email me at Lauren@laurenlindley.com or hit the contact button at the top of the website.
Q) How much is it to book my slot for the photo-shoot?
A) A $100 deposit is due upon booking. That amount will then be applied to your package. The remaining balance is due on or before the date of the photo-shoot. After your shoot you will be able to view/select your top 15 photos from your online (password-protected) gallery to be included in your book or select your favorite image to be placed on a gorgeous 8×12 metal print. You can choose between a black leather cover OR a red silk cover for your album. Additional prints or products may be ordered directly from your album.
Q) How should I arrive for my shoot? What should I all bring?
A) Once you book your time slot, I will email you an info email full of tips on how to prep for your shoot, what to bring and how to arrive, but in short, bring 1-3 outfits or your favorite lingerie. For some folks, this might mean boy shorts, and for others, it might mean lace. We can brainstorm ahead of time for something that fits you. When I modeled, I actually had nothing with me and I ended up borrowing a lacy bra I wouldn’t wear in a million years but it ended up looking amazing and I felt totally comfortable in the moment in it.
Q) What if I’m nervous?
It’s totally normal to be nervous beforehand, but I promise the experience is fun, liberating and you will mostly be so distracted by the extremely specific directions I’m giving you that you won’t have time to think about anything else except which hand is your left and where you are supposed to move it.
Q) What is the location like?
A) The location is a large spacious recently renovated suite at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. Hair & makeup will be done in a large additional bathroom and a separate, 2nd bath area provides a private changing area for you.
Q) Will my photos be shown on your website or kept private?
A) I won’t post images from a boudoir photo-shoot unless given specific consent to do so, which is why I used my own images above. I understand that because of the nature of the photography, it’s something most women like to keep to themselves. However, if you don’t mind sharing your photos, I would love to post them. Final decision is completely up to you and what you are comfortable with sharing.
