“I’ve worked with her twice now (will most likely be back for more) and each time she went above and beyond of my expectations.”

“She made me feel very comfortable and confident, and everyone on her team was super professional and easy to talk to/work with.”

Once you have booked your session date, we will send you helpful tips & advice to prepare for your big day. We will guide you through every step of the process, ensuring that your session becomes the best experience of your life.

“I WAS IN DISBELIEF THAT THE PHOTOS I WAS SEEING WAS ACTUALLY ME.”
“There are not enough words or adjectives to describe the experience I had with Caroline and her assistants. She is a world-class photographer and created a world-class experience. When you meet Caroline in person, she has a vision and hand-selects pieces for you to wear that will enhance and highlight your body type and shape, regardless of your size. Her collections are top-notch, high-end, and uniquely gorgeous. Then you begin your beauty session with hair and makeup. The makeup artist and hairstylist had their eye on detail and brings out the best you. Once you’ve been beautified, Caroline’s team is right there beside you with wardrobe changes and any help you need along the way”.
“Coming into the shoot, I was uncertain how to stand or change my facial expressions. That didn’t last long, Caroline led by example, clearly articulating how to position myself and what facial expressions to create. I never once felt intimated or out of sorts. Her talent, creativity, and attention to detail were clear throughout the day. The many options of scenery and backdrops only enhanced her creativity.”
“I felt incredibly empowered and uplifted and it showed when we reviewed the photos at the end of the afternoon. I was in disbelief that the photos I was seeing on the screen was actually me, untouched, raw photos. As you can imagine there were quite a few to review and choose from. Caroline provided her advice and expertise to help get through all of them and I did not leave feeling as if I left anything on the table.”
“Photos are now off to get some minor retouching and I can’t wait to see the final result. A big thank you to Caroline for a once-in-a-lifetime experience!“
“I WANTED THE BEST! CAROLINE MET AND EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS!”
“I had an amazing experience with Caroline throughout the whole process. I wanted to do a boudoir shoot for my fiancé, but I wasn’t sure who to go to. I knew if I was going to do it – I wanted the best! Caroline met and exceeded my expectations!”
“I was nervous beforehand because all the photos on her page were of gorgeous models, I thought there was no way I could compare and felt insecure. But immediately Caroline made me feel comfortable and sexy and the pictures made me feel like one of those models! She knew exactly how to tell me to pose and turn my head, ect., with expert knowledge of all the tiny details. And she was giving me feedback that made me feel like “okay, I can do this!”. I had so much fun during the shoot- and I am typically a pretty shy person when I first meet someone. Her makeup artist and assistant were so pleasant and friendly as well, making the whole experience enjoyable.”
“I am obsessed with the photos! They are so stunning and have also boosted my confidence since the photo shoot. I haven’t showed my fiancé yet, but I know he is going to die when he sees them! I love gift giving and I think this will be the best gift I’ve ever given him (and myself)!”
“Overall Caroline was friendly, sweet, and totally professional- I know I made the right choice with her! I would recommend (and have already recommended) her to anyone who is interested in this once-in-a-lifetime experience !“
“CAROLINE MADE ME FEEL SO SEXY AND COMFORTABLE”
“I’m a boudoir photographer myself, so when I say I’m highly selective about who I’d have take my boudoir photos, I mean it! I knew instantly that I wanted it to be Caroline when I saw her work. She is insanely talented. I’ve been a professional photographer for twenty four years, and her talent for photographing a woman’s body is unrivaled. Every single woman she photographs looks like they belong in a high end fashion magazine. She is a true artist; the absolute best of the best.”
“I traveled from out of state for my session. My hair and makeup was so gorgeous, and she made me feel like an absolute bombshell. I had a miscarriage earlier this year, and was in the middle of IVF when I did my shoot… neither process is easy, and I’ve struggled to see myself in a way that isn’t critical as I’ve been through it. I’m curvy, and even though I know the power of a talented photographer, I still questioned if I’d like how I looked.”
“I was shocked when I saw the images. I could hardly believe it was me. She took the best photos I’ve ever seen of myself. She’s worth every penny. I only wish I’d found her sooner! I know my husband and I will love these for years to come. It is such an incredible feeling to look at images of yourself and feel beautiful. Thank you, Caroline! I am so grateful for the gift of your talent, and for such an amazing experience.“
YOUR QUESTIONS, ANSWERED
WHAT DO I BRING TO THE SHOOT?
During your phone consultation, we will discuss if any pieces are needed from home but you’ll find our extensive designer lingerie impressive.
DO YOU OFFER WARDROBE?
We offer the latest designer lingerie and stunning high-end accessories and accent pieces in sizes XS-XL to complete your look. Our latest collections even include dresses and heels for glamour looks that you can share with friends and family. You will wear your own thong and liners with the lingerie, and everything is washed between shoots.
You only need to bring a few basic pieces. We will go over all of this with you before your shoot. Check out our wardrobe collection highlights on our Instagram page under “TRUNK.” Visit IG: “Caroline Malouf Photography”.
DO I NEED TO GET MY NAILS DONE FOR THE SHOOT?
A professional mani/pedi always gives the best look, but clean neutral nails for both hands and feet are also perfectly fine.
I’M NOT YOUNG OR SKINNY LIKE MOST THE WOMEN ON YOUR WEBSITE, IS THIS EVEN RIGHT FOR ME?
ABSOLUTELY!!!! We photograph ALL shapes, sizes, ages and ethnicity. In fact 90% of our clients are non-models that want beautiful images either for themselves or for someone special. We post many professional models on our website and social media to preserve our clients’ privacy. Most of our actual clients are not models but receive the same caliber of image quality as the models we showcase.
We welcome you with open arms and we’ll do everything to make you comfortable and give you beautiful images that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
WILL YOU HELP WITH POSING?
Absolutely! We love this part. We have so many poses for different body shapes and sizes. Some subtle and some totally sexy.
You’ll become so comfortable that you’ll be adding your own body language that will make each photo unique to your personality. We promise you don’t have to worry about this at all.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITH MY EXPRESSION?
We’ll work with you on that, too. Great poses are not complete unless your face is relaxed and depicts sensuality. You will be directed throughout the whole shoot to get the perfect expression to complete each pose.
WILL YOU USE MY PHOTOS ON YOUR WEBSITE OR SOCIAL MEDIA?
Never! We consider all images private so they will not be used on our website or social media unless you offer to give us written consent to use them.
DO YOU OWN ALL THE BACKDROPS/FURNITURE/SETS THAT YOU SHOW ON YOUR WEBSITE?
Yes, 99% of what you see is in our studio and available during your photoshoot.
WILL THERE BE ANY MEN AROUND DURING THE SHOOT?
Nope, ladies only:)
HOW PRIVATE IS THE SHOOT? WHO IS GOING TO WATCH ME?
Your shoot is very private. After your hair and makeup is done, the stylist leaves the studio. Only Caroline and her trusted female assistant will be with you during the shoot.
HOW DO I KNOW I’LL LOVE THE HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Good question, our hair and makeup process is very much
interactive…. that way there are no surprises and you’ll love the outcome. It’s a discussion between you, the hair/ makeup artist and Caroline.
CAN I BRING ANYONE WITH ME TO THE SHOOT?
No, you may not bring anyone to the shoot. Trust us, you won’t be comfortable with them around. Boudoir is a very intimate experience and your expression will never be what it needs to be because you’ll feel self-conscious about being “watched”, so we ask that you don’t bring anyone.
WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME FOR MY PHOTOS?
About 1 week for purchased retouched digitals and 3 weeks for albums and prints. Rush orders are available for an additional fee.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU BOOK?
About 4 months, but we end up with little openings here and there to schedule you in so don’t hesitate to call and ask.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH MEN?
No, unfortunately we do not accept male clients at this time.
