Featured Photographer Entry

The 3 images are from my Body Confidence Campaign where this year's recipient was a breast cancer survivor. We structured her session in 3 stages represented in these images. Phase 1 had her in lingerie completely hiding her scars, phase 2 allowed us to see the scars but still covered by the see through lingerie and then phase 3 completely...

"What Happened to May's Shooting Assignment?" (oops!)

Hey, guys. Yes, I totally dropped the ball with posting a shooting assignment for this month. The reason is because I've been consumed [obsessed] with writing new songs to launch the music shop on The Adore Girls' website (see my previous post).

I promise to try to do better and come up with a new shooting assignment for June. In the...

Exciting Announcement! (Boudoir videographers, click here!)

Recently, I have begun composing original music for boudoir videos. I started doing this because I was tired of spending HOURS searching through royalty-free music websites to find songs suitable for our boudoir videos. (For those of you who shoot boudoir videos, you know how frustrating that can be!) Most of the royalty-free music available...

My First

Hello everyone, thank you all for the advice/support. This is my first time with boudoir so please let me know what you think.

Totally missed the deadline

but thought I'd share a photo or two anyways.
I am just about to move all my boudoir from my main site (primarily weddings) to it's own website home. Which also means rebranding a bit, shooting new work for the portfolios and making sure it's all on brand.
What's your boudoir brand say?

First shoot lens selection

Hello all
I have my first shoot coming up and I can't wait. I only have one problem. I have a Nikon D3200, I only have the kit lens that came with it. 1. 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 and a 55 to 200mm. What lens should I use for the best image for boudoir? I will be outside and inside for this shoot. I really need help with dop. Thank you very much.

New Set in the Studio

Just want to share a few images from a new set we created.
The week before last we moved some rooms around in the studio and we created a new set on the side of our loft that we never really used. It is now my favorite place to shoot in the studio.


Tweaked my branding AGAIN

I find myself more and more wanting to simplify.... So this is the latest, greatest, and hopefully last for a while version of my logo and business name.

The hardest part is remembering ALL of the places I need to change it....

Le Sigh.

Hey from Nashville!

I'm Jamie, owner and photographer at The Adore Girls in Nashville! The one and only Courtney Bell is a photographer with me at the studio as well.


A Different Type of Weekly Boudoir Challenge

Hey, everyone!

First of all, I'm so excited to see that this group has grown to over 500 members, and what a talented bunch of photographers! The work you guys have shared so far is truly inspiring, and I can't wait to see more. :)

So, I had an idea for a weekly boudoir challenge that is a little different from those that I've...

Lighting or Flash ?


I am new to photography and have my first shoot coming up with a model. I am looking into lighting options. For a beginner like me would you suggest a 3 piece lighting kit or a remote flash? The shoot will be inside a house. I look forward to posting my shoot in this group. Thank you for your advice.

Something different to start out with

Greetings. I've been lurking around the site for a few months and decided to just go ahead and get my feet wet. These images were from a shoot I did quite a few years ago as an experiment. They are screen captures from a VHS video tape and then played with a little in PS. Hey, not all images have to be shot with a 5D Mark III right? But dont...
