The #MBPEmpower Boudoir Photo Shoot Experience
A gorgeous West Michigan boudoir photography studio located near downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan that hosts an all-female staff and a fun, relaxing atmosphere. It is the perfect space for an amazing boudoir photo shoot experience.
During an intimate and authentic boudoir photo shoot, you have the opportunity to show your unique and individualistic beauty, whether it be sweet, edgy, sporty, elegant or anything in-between. Enjoy the day being pampered and photographed exactly how you want to look, feel and be seen. Every woman deserves this experience to feel sexy and confident. My goal is for you to see your own inner light and self-worth and leave the studio feeling excited, happy and beautiful in body and soul.
Boudoir photo shoots at Michelle Burroughs Photography are an empowering experience. I focus my attention on supporting and encouraging women to achieve a body positive view of themselves. Women of all ages, all shapes, all sizes, and all ethnicities are meant to feel confident and sexy as themselves. That is why I offer an unforgettable experience with empowering and uplifting photo shoots.
Photo shoots at my studio are like a ladies’ day out. You’ll spend the morning sipping mimosas, getting your hair and makeup done, and chatting about life. We’ll go over what you’ve brought to wear and I’ll create a plan for your shoot with different sets and lighting. I’ll coach your posing and expressions so that you don’t have to worry about anything besides admiring your stunning images that you’ll love forever.
I offer a same day reveal meaning that while you head off for an extended lunch downtown or relax at my studio, I prepare your images for viewing. Within an hour, you’ll get to see all of your beautiful images and choose which ones you love the best and how you want to display them. I offer albums, wall art, little black books, retro viewfinders and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
I’m really nervous! What should I do?
This is my most frequently asked question about doing a boudoir photo shoot! Just know that almost every client that walks through the studio door is nervous at first. For most women a boudoir photo shoot is outside of their comfort zone and that’s totally awesome! It’s completely natural to be nervous and that is why I make sure every photo shoot includes hair and makeup. In addition to making you feel amazing the time you spend getting your hair and makeup done allows us to chat about your shoot and settle your nerves. Believe me, after just a few minutes of posing, you’ll be totally comfortable and having a wonderful time!
Do you offer makeup styling?
Yes, I do! This is another of my most frequently asked questions. Every photo shoot includes professional makeup styling. This photo shoot is about empowering you to feel confident and sexy and to me a huge part of that is feeling comfortable. A photo shoot is typically outside of your comfort zone and I want you to feel confident and comfortable before we get started. You’ll spend an hour getting pampered and enjoying yourself with refreshments while we chat about what made you decide to do a shoot and how we can create an amazing experience.
What is included with the photo shoot?
The #MBPEmpower Photo Shoot Experience is $299 and includes a pre-shoot consultation to discuss why you want to do a photo shoot, what the experience is like, suggestions for an amazing photo shoot and how I can create an unforgettable experience that is authentic to you. You also get wardrobe styling advice that includes suggestions for what to wear to your photo shoot and pairing what you bring with the items I have in the studio. The photo shoot comes with hair and makeup styling by professionally licensed stylists and 1.5 hours of shooting with me including an unlimited number of wardrobe changes.
Afterwards is your same day in-person reveal and ordering session. I edit your photographs while you head downtown to eat lunch and when you return we’ll watch a slideshow of your photographs and I’ll help you choose your favorites. I offer a variety of stunning books, albums, wall art, digitals and more. You can see some of what I offer on the pricing and products page. Products, including digital images, are NOT included in the #MBPEmpower Photo Shoot Experience fee and must be purchased separately. Packages start at $999. Products are ready 2-4 weeks after your same day reveal.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I do! I know that a boudoir photo shoot is an amazing investment in you and I want every woman to be able to afford it so I offer payment plans. I can break your balance into as many payments as you need (one due at the time of your same day reveal) and as soon as your balance is paid in full you’ll receive your products.
How much do you edit the photographs?
I want you to know that you are as beautiful in real-life as you are in your photographs. With that in mind I do not manipulate them but rather use lighting and coach you through posing to show off how amazing you are but that you don’t get a chance to see day to day just living your life. I’ll show you what others see when they take the time to truly see you and hopefully you will come to see the beauty that you hold inside and out.
Do I have to have my photographs displayed on your website, social media, etc.?
Absolutely not! It is totally up to you if you would like to sign a model release and have your story showcased on our blog, etc. A lot of women are empowered by their photo shoot and want other women to see how amazing the experience is for themselves so they offer to be a Muse – a creative visionary who leads the way for others. What you choose to do with your photographs is completely up to you and just like with your body – you are in control and able to decide.
What should I wear to my boudoir photo shoot?
Whatever makes you feel amazing and empowered and authentically you! This shoot is about empowering you to fall back in love with yourself and rediscover how amazing you are. Check out this article to read some helpful tips on what to wear and links to online shops that I recommend for beautiful lingerie.
Do you have more photographs I can see?
Absolutely! Check out my Gallery and Instagram page to see my latest photographs and studio sets. If you’d like to view a sample of a full client gallery, just send me an email at email@example.com or via my Contact page.
