I'm Amy Maddox, a boudoir, beauty, maternity (& wedding!) photographer with over 13 years in the industry. I specialize in creating light, airy, romantic portraits of WOMEN but more importantly, I create a safe space where you will learn to love your curves and discover how beautiful you truly are.
Feeling beautiful & confident in your own skin is the most amazing feeling. But it's no secret that many women have skewed body images. We always want what we don't have, & get fixated on "flaws" that only WE see, that we’ve warped inside our heads though years & years of pressure to look like model & celebrities. That needs to end. Like NOW. Let me show you how the world sees you. Then, months from now when you’re lacking confidence, you can flip through your album & see proof that you are stunning. Remember there isn't just one type of beautiful. You don't have to be a size 2 or have flawless, pore-less skin to be worthy of being photographed. You are worthy now. Boudoir is the chance to show the best version of YOU. It's time to start loving YOUR body, just the way you are. ALL bodies are beautiful & as women that's even more true. We have the most beautiful curves & we should celebrate Every. Single. One.The gorgeous women in this guide are just like you! They are nurses, engineers, accountants, moms, grandmothers, lawyers, & just regular women. Any woman can do this!
NEVER without your permission! If you want to share
your images on my website, I’m happy to show them off, but
I’ll get written permission for each image.
We usually shoot 10, and trust me you will find everything you need in our Client Closet. Most of my clients can find 15-20 lingerie sets that they love, and we narrow it down to the best 10.
About an hour and a half for hair and makeup, 30-60 minutes for a wardrobe consultation where you can try on any of my pieces, and about 2 hours for your shoot. Hair + Makeup begins at 9:30am.
At my studio in La Porte. It's a natural light studio with white walls, tons of windows, polished concrete floors, gilded mirrors, a macrame swing, tufted furniture, and fun colorful backdrops.
No, you purchase those at your ordering appointment 2 weeks later. I offer wall art, canvas prints, folio boxes, matte prints, metals, acrylic prints, albums, and digitals. Our albums begin at $699, collections begin at $1899.
No. I have a specific style and workflow and I need time to get you comfortable, relaxed, to discuss your outfits, and
to teach you all my posing tricks. Once that happens, the
magic begins! Then, it takes time to get all the little details
perfect in camera. A 30 or even 60-minute session is not enough time to
go through this process.
Your images will be ready within 1-2 weeks of our session, and that's when we'll schedule your ordering appointment. Prints, wall art, and albums are delivered in 2-6 weeks. If you purchase a collection that includes digitals, and pay in full at your ordering appointment, which most of our clients do, you leave with your digital files!
That’s entirely up to you! If bringing a female friend will make you feel
more comfortable, they are welcome to come sip champagne with you while you're in hair and makeup, but once we start shooting you might feel better if it was just the two of us. My studio is one big open space, and you might feel much more comfortable if no one else is watching you. Plus I need that time to just focus on you. But I promise you within 10 minutes you'll be laughing and having more fun than you can imagine. It's never not happened.
EVERY image gets retouched to magazine quality, which includes removing razor bumps, bruises, pimples, and scratches, and I also include body contouring, if you choose. Everyone gets a few lbs and a few years off :-). So if you have a breakout the day of our shoot, it’s no problem. All of that gets retouched. But I don’t give my A-cup girls fake Cs and I won’t make a size 10
a size 2, or the other way around- because you’re perfect just the way you are!
Nope, boudoir sessions are girls only.
Yes I do! Boudoir is a splurge, it's not something you do every day. It's also an investment, not just in dollars but in YOU. I offer in house payment plans, and all products will be delivered after payments have been made. But we also accept PayPal Credit, which allows you to get your prints, products, and digitals right away and they offer 6 months no interest!
