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!"
