Luxury boudoir photography experience for the girlboss, bride or mom who deserves to feel gorgeous.
Hi, I’m Leslie!
My mission is giving women an experience that takes them away from the nitty gritty of kids, bills, bosses, and all the boring adult stuff.
Giving women a chance to feel pretty, to feel in control, to feel pampered.
I’m pretty ordinary in a lot of ways. I’m a minivan-driving mom (2 boys), a wife and military spouse (since 2008), a pet feeder (2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 fish). But where I think I’ve got a little something extra is with my work transforming women like me into extraordinarily sexy women.
I am a self- and mentor-trained photographer who has specialized in boudoir since 2009. I have photographed hundreds of women with unique personalities and body types so I know how to tailor a session to bring out the best in you. Don’t worry I made all my photography mistakes on my very patient college roommates (shout out to Jen!). You’re in good hands through this whole process.
This is what I’ve been made to do for this world. It would be an honor to show you how extraordinary you are.
Reignite the spark in your relationship after kids, commitment and years gone by. Modest couple’s boudoir is sure to rekindle the excitement.
Why the hell not? You don’t need a significant other, this is a gift to YOURSELF. Feel pampered, feel pretty, feel the sexiest you ever have.
When the man you love has everything, give him a groom’s gift that will knock his socks off. It’s the perfect way to say, “I love you.”

“If you are thinking about getting boudoir photos done, do it!! And do it with Leslie! Seriously. You won't regret it! I was so nervous to have my photos done that I almost cancelled, but am so glad that I didn't! Leslie has a true talent for making her clients feel like they just became a professional supermodel! It wasn't awkward at all, and was even a lot of fun! Also, the pictures turned out amazing. My husband loved them, but I think I loved them even more!”
ALBUQUERQUE BOUDOIR STUDIO BEHIND THE SCENES
WHEN TO BOOK A PHOTOSHOOT
Now, of course!
The hardest part of the entire experience is deciding that you are bold enough, brave enough and worthy of feeling extraordinary.
We open up our calendar in 2-3 month windows, occasionally a last-minute session becomes available, but please plan ahead.
Custom products take up to 8 weeks to create, so we recommend you schedule a session 10 weeks before you need to have photos in hand. A shorter window may incur rush
Why boudoir at all?
A boudoir photoshoot is something every woman should experience at least once in her life. We’ve all flipped through a glossy magazine and wondered what it would be like to feel that sexy, that beautiful and that confident. We’ve all picked ourselves apart in the mirror for “flaws” that may be real or may be imagined. We’ve all cringed at an unflattering photo posted on Facebook.
Most women in your position are wondering: Will I be awkward? Will I be the only one to ever fail boudoir? Will this mean I’m vain or selfish? Will I regret this?
At Lavish, we believe that taking an ordinary woman out of her day to day life with this extraordinary experience will be life-changing. We are committed to that goal. We want you to have more than a pretty photo (you can get that at any reputable studio), we want you to feel like you’re among friends, to feel brave, to feel special, to feel absolutely unstoppable.
So to answer those burning questions: I will coach you from head to toe so that nothing feels awkward. No one has ever “failed” at boudoir and we’ll make sure you don’t feel like you have. You deserve to be treated as the extraordinary woman that you are. That is neither vain nor selfish. As time and life goes on, you are far more likely to regret what you didn’t do.
