What is boudoir & intimate lifestyle?
“Lifestyle” photography is a type of portrait that is aimed to be artistic, being able to capture people in the art of the everyday. Intimate lifestyle is commonly referred to as boudoir photography, and it portrays people in a more private, sensual, and romantic way. An individual may do a boudoir session for a number of reasons: For a significant other, a bride’s wedding gift to a fiancé, or a gift to yourself. Most importantly, boudoir is an experience for the individual to feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful in their own body. It is empowering, liberating and cathartic.
I am here to help you on this journey. My goal is not only to create beautiful photos that you will love and appreciate for years to come, but to help you realize that you are beautiful, strong, and appreciated. We live in a world where there are so many voices telling us who we are and what we should be, but I’m here to help you tell the world who you are.
Each individual is unique and special. You deserve the utmost attention and care. That is why I only do a couple sessions per week. I work with you every step of the way: from your initial inquiry, all the way up to when you see your boudoir photos. It’s perfectly normal to feel nervous and anxious about your boudoir and intimate lifestyle session. It is a new but rewarding experience that will leave you feeling confident, beautiful, and empowered.
We are blessed to have an amazing and talented selection of hair and makeup artists here in Guelph that will leave you breathless as you look at yourself in the mirror. A boudoir session is truly a time to spoil yourself, because it’s all about you.

What are people saying about their boudoir experience?
“I did an intimate portraiture session with Alex and he made me feel so comfortable and gave excellent direction for posing and outfit ideas too! I also love how much time he spent with me and that he didn’t rush it at all and is very patient and gives direction until you get it right! He sent sneak peeks the same day and I am blown away!” - Chelsea
“I loved having my boudoir photographed by Alex (and Ariana)!! I felt so comfortable in their studio and, being a photographer myself, I know how important it is to make your subject feel at ease. Especially with boudoirs LOL. And I loved how the photos turned out as well, I felt so feminine and myself :) Thanks Alex!!” - Cara
