After getting a breast reduction and losing a bit of weight I not only wanted to do this shoot as a gift to my husband, but also a gift to celebrate my body. From booking until the completion of the shoot Allie made me feel so comfortable and at ease! Her questionnaire made me feel like she knew exactly what style I was going for and that I wasn't going to just show up and hope the images came across how I envisioned. Allie went above and beyond to make the entire process special and memorable. She totally took my vision and ran with it. I love how creative she is with her boudoir images and doesn't just leave you with the typical boudoir shots you see everywhere. I never had to question how to pose myself or if I looked good in a position, she knew exactly how to place me and was always throwing out fun ideas that came to mind. We had the best time dancing around and I'm so grateful to not only have had her capture these special images for me, but also gain a new friend out of the experience. If you haven't already booked with Allie, do yourself a favor and book a shoot, I promise you will not regret it!!
Every time I do a shoot like this it sends me. Sends me down a road to contemplate the exclusivity of being a woman & of being a mother. I love to push this agenda any chance I get & these shoots with our sweet Allie seem to be the compatible segue.
I was a woman first, before motherhood, & I have a duty to honor her. Without her sexuality I would not have produced a life. I honor that.
I honor my flesh for surviving something so traumatic, both through child birth & obstacles with my general health.
Christianity succeeded in convincing me my body & my sexuality were my enemies for too many good years of my sweet life. I’ve evolved to understand my body is INTELLIGENT, MY PARTNER, & most definitely on my side working WITH ME & for me.
I honor the rebellion against such harmful thinking against our bodies & as women.
I honor Allie for creating a space where I can comfortably curate an extension of myself through art & photography. She is the best there is. I value her vision & trust her exclusively.
I wanted to share a bit of me (our most recent session) & a bit of my adoration for Allie, to hopefully encourage growth & wealth for her through her business & talents!
We’re fans of Allie in our home
Let me first say she is AMAZING! I did a personal boudoir shoot. Not only does she make you feel so comfortable, she goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of in every aspect.
She gave me so many helpful tips to prepare for the shoot and she was amazing at directing me during the shoot. I was so nervous and she put my mind at ease. She was 100% professional and THEN some. I've never been more impressed by a photographer.
I wanted to have my collection and photos ready by a certain date and she went ABOVE and BEYOND for me to accommodate every need I wanted. I COULD NOT recommend her more. You will NOT be disappointed at all. She makes you feel like a Goddess during the shoot and the product is beyond amazing. Any body issues you have she puts to rest. She is fast in communication and really makes sure her client is taken care of.
If anyone was hesitant to book a Boudoir shoot, she is everything you could want and then some. Highly Highly recommended I really can't say that enough. I've never felt more comfortable in my skin than in front of her camera.
I can't even begin to tell you about what a fantastic experience this was.
I had been a long time fan of Allie's work and when the option for the boudoir marathon came around I knew I had to jump on it. From the first interaction I felt like Allie and I were already friends. She answered my many questions, gave me recommendations for lingerie, and just in general hyped me up. It's not every day you end up in your underwear in front of a camera, but she made the whole process really comfortable and safe. On the actual shoot day, from the moment I got to the studio I felt like a total movie star. The hair and makeup artist was fantastic and the general vibe was electric. Since this whole process was super new to me, Allie was great about telling me how to pose, what kind of mood to go for etc and kept the whole thing fun. The best part - it still felt like me. I didn't feel like I was trying to act like someone else, it was my own brand of sexy. And let me tell you - the end result was jaw dropping. I LOVED the pictures.
If you are ever on the fence if you should do a boudoir shoot absolutely do. And when you do - PLEASE do yourself a favor and book with Allie. She is a QUEEN and will help bring out your inner queen.
Where do I even begin, this woman is amazing! Not only is her work STUNNING and completely speaks for its self, but she was able to make me look and feel sexy hell while shooting. Did I mention she was able to do this for me while l was 8 months pregnant?!
If she can make me feel that sexy and that confident doing an nontraditional maternity boudoir while rocking this new mommy body just imagine the magic she can create for you! She was even able to get my husband in some shots feeling himself just as much!
I can’t tell you how important it was for me to feel this comfortable and confident to be able to be able to do a sexy boudoir while pregnant and there is LITERALLY no one else I would trust to do this for me! I am so glad we went for it because the pictures she was able to get are beyond anything I could have dreamed! Allie will make your boudoir dreams come true... just do it, go for it, you will not regret it I promise!!
I followed Allie Marie on Instagram for several months before I booked with her. Her photos are pure art and she is consistently exceptional. She has a creative eye that is innate, and her photos are whimsical, captivating, and poetry in the flesh. I fell in love with her wok online, but honestly, working with her in person is the experience of a lifetime. She was timely when booking, and worked with my schedule. She sent emails with all the details needed for the shoot, and gave me access to a Pinterest board that she created for creative ideas to consider prior to my session. She was professionalism personified. When I arrived at the location, she immediately put me at ease with her warm personality, and helped me with posing to bring out the best in my features. The hour that we spent during the shoot just flew by because she was just SO MUCH FUN. She sent me a preview a couple days after my shoot, which was FLAWLESS. I recommend her without reservation, you will not be disappointed.
