Where do I begin, I’m not exactly your “comfortable in my skin” type of person! Being in lingerie is absolutely a very vulnerable feeling! To say I was nervous is an understatement but from the beginning right until the end when I got my pictures Allison was amazing! Very detailed, she made it so easy to find what i needed, as far as what to wear! I felt comfortable from the moment I walked through the door and she helped customize the shoot to my needs! To say I’m obsessed with how my pictures came out is an understatement! It was out of my comfort zone and truly not for a minute while I was there did I feel that way! Michelle did a beautiful job with my glam, and the shoot was so smooth and fluent! My pictures came out beautiful, from the meet and greet to the final product, the experience was awesome!
Where do I begin! To start, I’m going to put it right out there, Allison and Michelle are a dynamic duo! They are both very sweet and talented women. Allison’s work is elegant and classy with jaw dropping pizzazz and Michelle is a talented makeup artist that really enhanced my natural beauty making me look and feel flawless. Prior to having my son 4 years ago I always had a very confident self image, however, that began to fade postpartum. Allison and Michelle gave me that extra boost of confidence during my shoot that left me walking away feeling like one bad ass mama! Even with my confidence prior to becoming a mom I would’ve never thought I would have a photoshoot let alone a boudoir photoshoot I felt I was waaaay to awkward for that, but after following Allison on Instagram I figured it’s time to break out of my shell and I am so glad I did. Not to mention, my Fiancé absolutely adores the photos, which is the perfect cherry on top! So, if you are on the fence about getting a boudoir shoot because you feel you are “too awkward” or uncomfortable with your body, do yourself a favor and get in contact with Allison. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and confident from the very first interaction and it only gets better from there. We ALL deserve to feel like our best selves!
Doing a boudoir photo shoot was something I never even considered. I am the least confident person and couldn’t imagine myself being the focus for the day. When I met Allison she had this bright, positive, sunny disposition. The actual opposite of myself. I knew instantly I wanted to work with her. I thrive off people that lift others up and that’s exactly what she did for me. Her pure joy, excitement, and love for the art she creates is beautiful to witness and be apart of. Every little detail from our first phone convo, to our zoom meetings, shoot day, my proof reveal, & finally receiving my album everything has gone above and beyond my expectations. Allison’s attention to detail made my final prints mind blowing! The way the light hit across my collar bone, the way she tilted my head just enough to get the perfect profile, the pointed toes, my hair rippling down my back , the booty pop, the lip separation! All of it! She makes it blend perfect!! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Allison you forever have changed the way I not only see myself but you’ve helped me understand how beautiful someone can be when they let their guard down and live in the moment. Xo
Working with Allison and Michelle exceeded everything I could have imagined the day would be like. It is truly one of the best experiences I have ever had (I even told a girlfriend the day was second only to my wedding day!). I wish there was a way that I could capture how Allison and Michelle made me feel, put it into a snowglobe, and shake it up each morning to relive the emotions of that day. I have never felt so empowered, confident, and beautiful in my own skin. Looking at the images I was so happy to see that I truly looked like myself and not a version of me that I did not recognize. Allison and Michelle brought out something inside of me that I knew was there, but wasn't sure how hidden it was. I walked away from the shoot feeling like I could take on the world. I cannot wait to surprise my husband with these photos for our anniversary, but I am even more glad that I did this for myself. I will look back on these photos and think "damn, look at how strong and confident I can be." Allison and Michelle instantly made me feel comfortable and confident to try new poses, outfits, and even a few tasteful unclothed photos. I never thought I would be so comfortable naked with two women I have never met before, but that is the environment Allison and Michelle have created. There was not an ounce of insecurity to be found. I would give the entire experience, from the starting consultation zoom call, to the pinterest board and constant questions I would ask, to the photo shoot and the image reveal a million stars if I could. I would strongly encourage anyone considering doing a shoot with these ladies to take the leap. It is truly one of the most gratifying and empowering experiences of your life.
I cannot recommend a more friendly and professional photographer. Allison is HANDS DOWN the best at making one feel comfortable (which is obviously important in her line of work and was my #1 priority when looking for a photographer to do a wedding shoot for my fiance). I never once felt out of place and had the BEST DAY shooting with her and Michelle. From start to finish, Allison met with me on the phone and via Zoom to get to know me and my vision. The personalized Pinterest board was FANTASTIC and I really enjoyed collaborating with her on that. The final results were stunning and something I will cherish forever. I would go back every year if I could and I have recommended her to every woman I know! There are not enough words to describe my gratitude!
I was a little hesitant to do a boudoir shoot but decided to take the plunge as a Christmas gift for my husband and I’m so glad I did. It started out as something for him but in the end became something for me. Working with Allison was great – every single step of the process was so thoughtful and personal. From the intro call, to the prep emails, the day of the shoot, the gift bag when I left, the photo reveal and then a wonderful package with a personalized note and engraved bracelet. Everything was above and beyond special. If you’re on the fence I 100% recommend you do this, Allison and Michelle (hairstylist and makeup artist) make you feel like you’re hanging out with girlfriends and in the end, you get these stunning images that you’ll have for a lifetime. Wish I could give more than 5 stars.
I had always wanted to do this for myself but luckily have someone in my life who I also knew would love the photos and bought a photo package for him for a gift! I really felt confident about the decision to have a boudoir shoot after reviewing Allison’s website. It’s informative, straightforward and professional which made me very comfortable. Allison took time with each meeting prior to the shoot to brainstorm on wardrobe and the overall look and feel I wanted for the photos which was classic boudoir but with a bit of a Parisian twist.
On the day of the shoot, I met with Michelle, the talented makeup artist, and Allison went through all my final wardrobe choices for each look. It felt great giving myself the freedom to “relax and let go” and I so appreciated their expertise and care as they meticulously transformed me into another version of myself. I honestly did not worry about anything because they both were so conscientious about their roles. Once I was “camera ready” all I had to do was listen to Allison’s instructions so she could get the best shots possible. We ended up with so many amazing photos - the hardest part is choosing the ones you want to keep! I highly recommend this experience for anyone who has been wondering what it would be like to have gorgeous photos of yourself from a day that you will always remember. Allison and Michelle make it easy for you to relax and create the best moments. Spoil yourself or someone else you love with these photos!! You won’t regret it!
I was super hesitant to do a boudoir shoot at first. I knew I wanted one because the images I saw were so gorgeous but I didn’t know if I had the confidence or “body” to do it. Well with Allison none of that matters! Right from my first consultation call with her I knew that this experience would be special. She talked to me like we were friends and she was so warm and not pushy at all about the shoot (which is important to me!). She helped with all the preparation like where to find the proper clothing and what to do wear to suit any body! I loved that she didn’t push the lingerie and heels thing but encouraged me to wear what felt sexiest to me! Once the day came I felt so pampered and safe in her studio. Michelle did an amazing job at making my features shine with amazing makeup and Alison made me feel so comfortable getting started. She made me feel like we were besties taking fun photos and it felt so casual the whole time. I remember feeling my confidence rising as the shoot went on and just beaming as I left. I look through my photos often and am so proud of myself for doing it and so grateful for Alison for showing who I am in the pictures and helping me see that I AM BEAUTIFUL!
I was so, so nervous and intimidated of this shoot because of my own views of my body. I didn’t think I could smile the right way or turn my body or use my body in any of the ways I may have needed to. But almost immediately after I got started, Allison made me feel so comfortable and safe, I felt so welcomed. Her and Michelle are a kick ass team, confident, kind, and most importantly caring. I loved my experience and I will be back next time around!
Highly recommend doing a photo shoot with Allison. She made me feel beautiful, confident, and empowered! I was amazed at her talent and professionalism. You aren’t just paying for beautiful photos- you are paying for an experience. As a new mom, I lacked confidence in my post-baby body. She helped me embrace my curves and I felt sexier than ever before. The packaging of my flash drive was beautiful and in addition she sent me an inspiring bracelet that I wear when I need a reminder of what a bad ass I can be!
I had never thought I would do a boudoir shoot until I came across Allison’s work. I found myself at a point in my life where I was faced with some health issues. I thought about boudoir photos as a gift to myself to capture this moment in time before I started down a tough road, but still wanted to capture the youth and beauty I felt. As soon as I found Allison’s work, I knew right away that I had to do it and she was the perfect match for me! The day of the shoot was beyond my expectations; I didn’t want it to end! Not only did I feel at ease the entire time but I had so much fun going from pose to pose, changing outfits, laughing and feeling pampered and gorgeous. I am in love with every photo that Allison took. She is an incredibly talented photographer with an eye for how to highlight her clients’ beauty. I would encourage everyone to book a session with Allison. Don’t wait for when you think you’re ready because she will take care of that for you. I guarantee she will make you look gorgeous, confident and sexy all while creating an unforgettable memory and having stunning photos of yourself to keep forever.
I always thought that boudoir photo shoots were for women who were prettier, skinnier, more confident than I was. I didn’t realize until I met Allison that I could be one of those women! When I had the idea to do this for my boyfriend I couldn’t have even imagined how amazing the experience could be for me- for my own confidence and enjoyment. Allison makes you feel like you’ve known her forever and that she is a friend. As nervous as I was at the beginning I ended my shoot feeling more comfortable than I ever thought I would. Allison is with you every step of the way whether it be opinions on outfits or just saying the exact right thing to make you enjoy the process. The time she spends pre shoot, during the shoot, and even after picking products is what makes her the perfect boudoir photographer. I am so happy that I decided to do a shoot with her and can’t wait to do another. If you’re looking to do a shoot or are on the fence about doing one-look no further, Allison is the absolute best! I also wish that Michelle, who seems to be her right hand woman, could do my hair and makeup everyday!!
Allison is amazing. She is warm, friendly and professional. From the initial contact she answered all my questions and concerns. She very efficient and responds quickly. She works with an amazing beauty team who are also just as talented in their profession as she is. She brings a collaborative approach which allows you to be completely involved in everything pertaining to your shoot. Her work is magic! She is also very flexible as I initially wanted to do this as a Christmas present and then switched up the timeline on her needing it 2 months earlier. Despite the last minute changes and short window of time, she came through on time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is interested in doing this.
Every woman deserves a boudoir photo shoot with Allison. On top of being an incredible photographer, she is so warm and kind. The entire boudoir process, from picking outfits to shooting to picking up my album felt so... DECADENT! I got these as a surprise for my husband for our anniversary, but they really turned out to be the best gift for myself. Amidst a pandemic and raising two kids, this shoot was a moment of luxury. Allison highlighted all the things I love about myself, and went out of her way to take gorgeous shots of areas I deemed “problem areas” like my abs. I look at them in a whole new light all thanks to her. I can’t rave about Allison enough and I’m so thrilled that I will have these photos to look back on for the rest of my life. They will forever remind me of how strong & resilient I was during a challenging time… and THAT is sexy.
Never in a million years did I think I would do a boudoir photoshoot. In my eyes, I am awkward,
nervous, shy and totally reserved. However, I knew I wanted to do something special for my
fiancé for our wedding day. Once I got to my first initial meeting with Allison, I knew I had
nothing to worry about. She made me feel so comfortable while talking about things totally out
of my comfort zone. At this meeting, we really figured out the style shoot I was trying to go for
and the next day she shared a Pinterest board with me. It was like our conversation came to
life. The whole time leading up to my shoot Allison was available and willing to answer any and all of my crazy questions and continued to boost my confidents all the way until shoot day. The day of my photoshoot I was super nervous and woke up to a text from Allison, “saying she was so excited and happy for me”. It was the perfect start to the day. The whole time I was at the shoot I was 100% myself and absolutely not awkward, nervous, shy nor reserved. It was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. I never saw myself in the light that Allison saw me in from the first time she had met me. I cried when she showed me a teaser of with some of my photos. I could not believe that was me and how good I looked. This experience was not only a great surprise for my future husband, but it also changed my view of myself. I no longer see myself as awkward, nervous, or shy, I see myself as confident, beautiful, and strong.
The photoshoot with Allison was just awesome from start to the end. I was so happy when she chose me for her first beach photoshoot! I was counting days down to the day of the photoshoot.
She was so great, kind and professional telling me what to do, which pose will look great and also she made me feel so comfortable with myself that all the time I felt like a queen. She moved my confidence on one more level up. She was so professional. Also the hair and makeup her girl did for me was amazing. Everything was just the way how it's supposed to be to make my experience awesome. It was my little present to myself also for live at USA one year and can't not be happier that I did it. Big thank you to Allison and wish everybody just the same experience!
This experience made me view myself in a different light. Being 7 months pregnant with my second child, I was struggling with feeling beautiful and confident with my body. Driving to the shoot, I was struggling with mom guilt: being away from my daughter, spending the day on myself not my family but once I arrive, Allison made me realize that it’s days spent on myself that makes me a better person, wife, and mother. It was so nice to get my hair and make-up done. It made this experience so wonderful and I felt so comfortable, beautiful, and confident. Its hard to put into words how I felt when I saw the picture during the reveal! I could not believe how great the pictures came out and now beautiful I felt! Now being 6 weeks postpartum, I can’t wait to do another shoot so I can embrace my body being a mom of 2!
As a model, being comfortable in front of the camera and in your own skin is incredibly important, but I had never really felt comfortable even with the idea of doing a boudiour shoot. That was until I met Allison! Her goal through every step of the process was to make sure that was completely comfortable, and at the end of it all I can truly say it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. It was so unbelievably fun and freeing, I walked away feeling more confident than I ever have. She gave me the gift of seeing myself in such a beautiful light. I 100% believe that every women deserves to see them selves through Allison’s lens
Being diagnosed with Breast cancer at the age of 33 takes a lot from you physically. You start to lose that sense of self and who you used to be. When Allison, a long time friend, approached me to take a boudoir shoot, I said yes. Saying yes even surprised me, as I most certainly did not feel beautiful at the time. Allison told me she wanted to celebrate my bravery and all I’ve been through this year. I just loved her outlook and her approach to honoring my body and what it helped me get through. I was so glad I said yes. Allison made me feel comfortable from the start. She knew the exact style I wanted. She helped me capture a time in my life.. quite frankly I didn’t think I wanted to remember. When I look at the amazing photos she took I see beauty, strength, and courage. She captured everything I loved about myself in spite of my cancer diagnosis. She made me feel beautiful in every way and empowered me to own my “new” body. Allison is sweet, incredibly knowledgeable, honest, and funny. She makes you feel comfortable immediately and let’s your true self shine through. If you want to reconnect with your self love, be sure to choose Allison!
Where do I even start? Allison was amazing!!! I had never done a photoshoot like this before! My best friend gifted it to me for my birthday! And I am so glad she did! A little different from the typical boudoir shoot as I was 8 months pregnant, but I still wanted it to be an intimate / sexy shoot! Allison met me before hand to go over what I wanted to get out this shoot! She listened to my wants and ideas! She then made me my own inspiration board on Pinterest! It was exactly the shoot I had envisioned! She really took the time to listen and make it perfect! On the day of the shoot she had the cutest snacks and music playing for me! She arranged for my make up to be done which was amazing! I felt so beautiful! Like I said, being 8 months pregnant and half naked I wasn’t sure how I’d feel, but she made me feel so comfortable! She gave great direction with each photo! And these photos are ones I will cherish forever! They came out better than I could have imagined! And she took what I was saying at the photoshoot and found the most perfect song to match my feelings to go with her photo preview slide to me! That was touching! Thank you Allison for a day and an experience I will never forget!
"I thought about doing a boudoir photo shoot for my boyfriend but never was confident enough in my body to do it. A friend of mine recommend that I go to Allison Pamela. I decided to contact her and we met up to talk about how it worked. I am VERY happy that I choose to go through this experience with Allison. She was so accommodating and met me half way to meet up and discuss the process. When I first met her we filled out a questionnaire together so she got to know me a bit better. Then she put my ideas and her own on a Pinterest board to get ideas for the shoot. I wasn’t sure what lingerie was best to wear and Allison helped me knowing which colors are best for the camera. I would send her pictures/ideas and she was very responsive and honest. Once I got to the shoot she had champagne, snacks and great music! I got my hair and makeup done by Melanie @bebeautifulatyle (which was included in my package). She made me look so beautiful! Once we got started, Allison talked me through the whole photo shoot and made me feel so confident! This can be an awkward experience but I NEVER once felt uncomfortable. Two days after the shoot, I met up with Allison to preview my photos and pick my favorite ones! (Talk about a quick turnaround!) I am still in shock as to how AMAZING these photos came out. This photo shoot wasn’t only for my boyfriend but for myself. I feel so much more confident in my body and I could not be more satisfied with Allison’s work. I 110% recommend you shooting with her! Thank you for making me feel so confident, Allison!"
