As a boudoir photographer I often here about how a boudoir session is a “once in a lifetime” experience. Something to cross off the bucket list.
Something you do so you can say that you’ve done it.
But you know what’s funny about that?
While I agree that having the right kind of boudoir session can be absolutely mind blowing and life changing, I know for a fact that most clients will come back again and again.
Because of the side effects you receive from your session!
“A session at GlamMarr studios may cause feelings of increased confidence, elation, changes in perception, giddiness and outburst of profanity”
“Holy shit I’m hot”
Ill let you in on a secret… getting your photo taken and the feelings you get from the experience itself are ADDICTIVE!
You’ll want to experience them again and again.
Think about it.
Your first session is like a first date. You’re nervous, you don’t know what to expect or if you are really as prepared at you think you are.
What if we don’t get along? Will I do something stupid? What should I wear!?
Then after your session you realize how freaking easy it was and how much fun you had!
You were literally nervous for nothing!
You love the outcome! You love your photos, you love how you feel after your session..
The first date went flawlessly and you had more fun than you thought possible.
You start seeing outfits you’d love to wear to your next session. Poses pop up on Instagram and you no longer think “Ugh, I’ll never look like that”, instead you click the save button so you can practice that pose later!
Now you’re thinking about ALL the possibilities for your next session and you’re starting to get excited again!
Your next shoot is like being in a relationship for a few years. Still sexy but you know each other WAY better and there is a foundation of trust!
We’ve learned from the first session what you loved the most and now you’re not afraid to step even more out of your comfort zone.
And we make the magic happen.
First shoot Vs Second shoot
Check out Laura’s first shoot
She did amazing and we had so much fun. She was open to trying pretty much whatever! This shoot was taken during the summer and we were able to capture some awesome outdoor pool shots!
And her second shoot!
Laura was super excited about shooting with the fireplace and had zero hesitations when I informed her that we were shooting fully nude!
I had some other tricks up my sleeve that made this a truly unique shoot! I love it when I get free reign to design a clients shoot.
and lets face it… My personal style (and studio) changes weekly so you’ll never get the same photos twice, no matter how many times you come back!
Which session to you vibe with more!? Summer fun or winter bliss?!
She also came in for a boudoir video shoot, you can check out what an actual boudoir session is like in the video below!
Talk about hot! These sessions still include access to our other studio sets but these are the only months that we turn up the heat, literally!
You can bring your own lingerie OR you can go completely nude (what we recommend) and teasingly cover your bits with our super soft blankets and throws!
Ready to book!? Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you pricing info AND our get ready guide! Or check out our site at www.glammarr.com and schedule your free, no obligation phone consult!
All Images used with permission. We never share your images without your explicit consent!
Ever wonder what a clients full shoot looks like? We often only see one or two images from someones session which does not allow for us to image what our own session may be like!
Ms H allowed for us to share all of her session! We chose our favorites to post here so that other potential clients can see the variety and range that they will receive during their shoot. One of the many reasons GlamMarr is so popular as a boudoir studio near St louis is because of its ever changing studio sets ups and its unique look that you cant get anywhere else.
Ok, Glad I got your attention! Let me just say that “BEST” is a term that is very much dependent on your personal opinion and what you value, so what is best to one person may not appeal to another.
Yes, that was click bait but now that you are here let me tell you why I PERSONALLY believe that we offer the BEST and most unique boudoir experiences in the Midwest. And just an FYI we’re located in Collinsville IL, just minutes from downtown St louis, Missouri.
1.Our reason why
At Glammarr we guide you through a process that will impact your life far beyond your photo session.
A bold statement? Absolutely! But we can back it up.
Self limiting beliefs are beliefs that we instill into our own psyche. These beliefs hold us back from living our best lives. Some major beliefs that many women have are that they are not beautiful enough, worthy enough or the right size to succeed in life and love.
If only I’d lose weight, If only I didn’t have these scars, If only my body looked like hers…
What makes glammarr studio unique is that we offer the opportunity to see yourself from another perspective, one where these beliefs are challenged. Were not here to just take photos of you, were here to TEACH you how to approach and change those beliefs and to show you how beautiful and worthy you are RIGHT NOW!
2. Who we photograph
We photograph women who struggle with self image and confidence. We photograph women who are happy in their skin and want to show it. We photography women wanting to celebrate a life event or women just wanting to do something nice for themselves. We photograph woman who feel like their body has changed and are not sure how to embrace it.
Mothers, wives, sisters, divorcees, singles, career women, grandmothers, empty nesters, fur moms, girlie girls, town boys…
We are experts in photographing ALL bodies; all sizes, colors, shapes and ages. Every woman we photograph is a real life client who was probably was just as nervous and on the fence as you might be!
3. Our Experience and Education
The skill of the photographer can mean the difference between giving yourself a much needed confidence boost or hating your results and blaming yourself for the photos that you do not love.
Boudoir is a niche field. You wouldn’t go to a general doctor to have plastic surgery done, right?
You’d want a specialist. Someone who is well versed in lighting, posing and guiding you through your shoot. Someone who has worked with woman just like you. Someone who has had the same struggles and understands WHY this is so important to you.
I have specialized in only woman’s intimate photography for 14 years. You literally cannot pay me to shoot families, pets, children, landscapes or weddings! Its true!
I do not do anything else. Photographing women is my jam.
You can see my early work and how my WHY has changed over the years here!
4. Your shoot will be unique to YOU
Ever go to a party and someone is wearing the exact same dress as you?
Yea.. I’ve been there too. It sucks because we work so hard to have our own unique style.
At Glammarr we style each clients shoot individually so that your session will be unique to you!
I often tell my clients that i have a knack for figuring out the perfect style for their session and I plan and design their shoot while they are in hair and makeup. I often pull pieces from our in house wardrobe closet and i add accessories to elevate each clients look. Sometimes my clients will bring in props and sometimes i add them myself.
The only thing that we want to be consistent is our photographic styling. We do not want our clients to have the same exact poses, set ups and outfits.
This is one of the many reasons why we only photograph one client per day! We take our time and plan out every little nuance for your session so that you have photos that showcase your personality.
I’m also very blunt. I will let you know what will and will not work! You can rest assured that you’ll get exactly what you wanted even if you’re not 100% sure on what that is!
5. You’ll actually look like YOU
Sounds kind of like a given right? Well its not.
Too often I see images of women who are overly airbrushed, overly retouched and who are robbed of their natural beauty due to over editing.
Is that because those women NEED all of that editing?
Its often that the photographer is not well versed in photographing various body shapes and sizes or that they feel beauty is defined by certain looks and attributes.
EVERY WOMAN I PHOTOGRAPH SEES THEIR IMAGES UNRETOUCHED.
And yes, they all think that it will be a horrible experience because they have stretchmarks, scars, wrinkles and rolls… Until they see themselves on that 65 inch TV in all of their gorgeousness.
How do you expect to love your own raw, real body if all you see are overly airbrused and liquefied images of yourself?
But wait, YES we do edit but only things that are NOT a permanent part of you Like bruises, acne, stray hairs, indent marks on your body etc.
6. Our studio is KILLER
Ok, Still being biased here but the photos speak for themselves!
GlamMarr studio is the most uniquely styled boudoir studio in the midwest. A bold statement, again, but something I strongly believe in. No generic loft or AirB&B but rather a studio that is constantly evolving and changing.
We have a multitude of sets, lighting and atmospheres. We even have a private outdoor area with an in ground pool (currently under MORE renovation!)
Our newest addition is our vintage boho bathroom filled with gorgeous greenery.
This is another reason why our shoots are so unique for each client. We have enough space to shoot them many times and give them a new and exciting session each time!
7. We want you to be well informed
We’re not hiding anything.!
We’re not going to make you jump through hoops to find out how to book or what we charge. We believe in being VERY honest and open about what to expect and how much it will cost. We send over our full pricing guide and our step by step get ready guide well before you book so that you can make an informed, non rushed decision.
We’ll talk with you about your budget and how we can work with it. We will let you know what payment option will be in your best interest (we have several).
We NEVER share your images without your explicit consent. If you choose not to share your images NO ONE ELSE WILL SEE THEM! PERIOD.
8. Were not pushy sales people
I fucking hate sales. In a past life i actually sold cars and I was the most open and honest sales person at the dealership. Needless to say I didnt last long at that job!
What you choose to purchase at your reveal will be up to you! I will NEVER pressure you to purchase more than you feel comfortable with or more than you need. I will be there to HELP you NARROW your images down so that you can stay within your means.
The images sell themselves, all i do is show them to you!
Most clients will purchase an album of their favorite images and our albums are THE BEST!
We do not skimp on quality. These professional, luxury albums have thick pages, gorgeous covers and will last a lifetime! Don’t settle for less!
9. You will be a part of EVERY process
When you first reach out about a session we will chat with you and link you to our step by step get ready guide and our full pricing guide.
You will be linked to a video on choosing wardrobe, given recommendations and linked to a guide on how to stretch for maximum flexibility for your shoot.
You will be shown how to pose, how to breath, how to arch, how to emote! We will work within your abilities to capture the most beautiful REAL photos of you!
YOU will choose what images and products you want.
After you choose your images at your reveal, you will be sent the edits to ensure that love the changes and you will APPROVE them before the next step.
Next we will send you the professionally designed album layout for you to approve also.
This is for YOU! We will make sure everything is freaking perfect!
10. Our team of ladies ROCK
Every session includes full professional hair and makeup from our in studio MUA Mariah. We have worked together to ensure that you will look amazing in front of the camera whether you choose a more natural look or a straight out of a sexy music video look!
Mariah is extensively trained in applying makeup specifically for this type of shoot. You will wish she styled you everyday, she is that good!
Monika from Nirvana studio in O’fallon IL is our recommended waxer. She’s super body positive and works with ladies of all weights, sizes, shapes and ages! You will love her so much you’ll hardly notice your hair getting ripped out 😀
and finally Nichole works at Sam & Delilahs in Alton IL and will help you choose the perfect outfit for your session and a fun toy for the bedroom if you are feeling frisky!
and yes! All of my girls have had sessions!
Bonus… The Photographer is pretty cool
I started this business over 14 years ago because I wanted a way to help women to feel better about themselves. I wanted to help them gain more confidence. I myself had suffered with binge eating, low self esteem and severe anxiety and depression and that is why I ultimately choose this path in life. I am now someone who is learning to navigate chronic pain and mental health while running a sucessful business and connecting to other women like myself.
Hi, My name is Alaynna and I am the most down to earth person you will ever meet.
I curse like a sailor, Im clumsy, Im weird and I am ME.
You will be at ease within 15 minutes of working with me. Seriously. Because thats about how long it will take before I drop something, Stub my toe and cuss or fall over something while demonstrating a pose. You literally cannot be intimidated by me, i promise!
Wonder what its like to work with me? Click HERE and watch the video!
Its truly a blessing in life that I am able to photograph woman and show them they are beautiful—Straight out of camera. No Photoshop required. Its amazing seeing my clients shift their perception and carry their new confidence into other parts of their lives! I wouldn’t change it for the world!
I wanted to blog about something a bit different today and so with me finishing up my most recent couples session at GlamMarr Studios I decided that it might be fun to do a bucket list for couples!
I so often hear about couples getting bored at the same old routine. Dinner and a movie, Netflix and chill… You know what I’m talking about!
So today I present to you 10 bucket list items to do with your significant other!
10. Write each other a love letter.
Does this really need explaining? When I first dated my husband we would write letters to each other fairly frequently. As the years pass by and daily life takes over, little things like this tend to be forgotten or put on the back burner. I still cherish every love letter I’ve gotten from my hubby and he stores his favorite from myself in his wallet. Take some time out and really think about all the amazing things your significant other brings to your life. Its nice to be reminded!
9. Take a spontaneous trip
Seriously! Don’t plan where you’re going just drive! Take turns choosing directions. See where you end up. This is a MUST do and you never know what type of amazing place you may end up!
8. Sext to eachother
If you haven’t done this yet, this is a fun one! Yes, its super awkward at first but you both may be pleasantly surprised at the things that come out when you’re able to hide behind your phone! Explore those ideas.
7. Volunteer together
This is PERFECT for the Christmas season (actually any time of the year really but its close to the holidays right now) AND helps out other people as well as strengthens your bond as a couple. Making others feel good makes us feel good too!
6. Take a bubble bath together complete with yummy wine and fruit
Don’t worry about the logistics of the tub, just pour in your favorite bubble bath and hop in! Take turns sipping wine or champagne. Feed each other chocolate covered strawberries. Bonus points for turning on some sexy jams and lighting some scented candles.
5. Sit down together and create a playlist of your relationship
Compile all the songs that have meaning or remind you of your relationship. What song was playing when you met. What was your wedding song? Your first dance. What songs remind you of each other. Make a night of this and be prepared to take a trip down memory lane!
4. Play a sexy game
There are so many fun ways to explore each others sexuality. You can create your own games, like “Adult Truth or Dare” or if you are wanting something more interesting there are a plethora of adult games available for purchase! There are so many that you can really turn this activity into a weekly tradition!
3. Go to an adult store together and pick out a surprise for each other
Speaking of purchasing a sexy game, there are a TON of other fun items that you can purchase for each other. Getting to know each others sexual fantasies can be a lot of fun and gives you an endless amount of scenarios to experiment with! Be sure that you are choosing a reputable, hygienic store with knowledgeable staff so that you and your S/O feel comfortable. I highly recommend Sam & Deliah located in Alton, IL. The store is set up like a high end boutique and the staff is very knowledgeable!
Want to elevate the experience? Be sure to add in some of your favorite essential oils! Not sure what to use or where to get them? Head on over to Mandaladiva’s Facebook group where you’ll find a ton of essential oil info and some other goodies.

And Drum roll please for the number one bucket list item for couples….
1. A Couples boudoir photoshoot
Yes, you read that right, there is no better way to enjoy the day and document those little intimate moments that you have on a daily basis but do not always get to see. The way you smile at eachother, hold each other and laugh. It truly is a special experience that you wont soon forget.
Imagine curing up next to the fireplace in 10, 15 or 30 years and reliving those intimate moments by looking through your boudoir album together! Actually, that’s probably another bucket list item that you can tackle together in the future!
