A boudoir mini session is less than half the cost of a full session, but with all of the fun and expertise Madelinne brings to the shoot. In her own words:
“Everyone has a sensual side. If you're male, female, trans, genderqueer, non-binary – boudoir is for you. My approach to boudoir photography is to get to know you – what makes you feel sexy, sensual, and confident may be different from someone else. Especially for us kinky folks!”
