Well now everyone knows thanks to our wonderful map creator, Posh Paperie. This adorable business always charms us with the invites we see all the time at weddings, so we thought, hey, let’s use their wonderful talent to create an adorable map for our soon to be launched website. I love the way it looks and cannot wait for you all to see it on our “Studio” page.
For those of you who either cannot seem to find a day during the week to get glammed up and have sexy photos taken, or do not live in San Diego, we have decided to open up almost every Saturday in October for shoots!

I received another sweet email today! Vanessa hosted a boudoir party a little over a month ago and was such a great hostess. Thank you for the sincere testimonial, Vanessa. And, thanks for letting me share it!
My husband’s birthday FINALLY arrived and I presented him with the book last night – he absolutely LOVED it! Thank you so much for everything you did to make this gift possible. I was telling my husband about the whole experience last night and it brought back all of the memories of that fun day. I told him how nervous I was before the shoot and how everyone at the studio was so professional and made me feel so comfortable. It was a great experience!
My husband said this is the best gift EVER! Thank you again.
You’ve heard us say one million times that Pin-Up parties rock, so we will spare you the babbling. But I will mention one more time that the Pin-Up Party is really the only way we can do “mini sessions.” Maybe some of you want to do a boudoir photo shoot but just can’t afford it right now OR maybe you aren’t ready to go for the full supermodel experience and just want to try it out first? Then a Pin-up Party is perfect!
The Pin up Party is a mini boudoir session for eash of the attendees. Perfect for bachelorette parties and b-day parties, or simply a San Diego girls day out. Every gal deserves a solid day of pampering every now and then right? We know that all of you brides out there make serious friends on the bridal forums like Bridal Insider or The Knot and we want to give you a chance to unite and organize and take advantage of the fabulousness of a pin-up party here at The Boudoir Divas.
So….. what are we asking of you to be “the chosen one” and hostess the event? First we need you to post this in Bridal Insider and ask your bride peeps to comment if they are interested or think you would be killer for the job. Once you have 10 comments shoot us an email so we can verify. You aren’t asking gals to confirm to attend the event, just to vote for you as hostess. If you have the comments then you are a shoe-in for hostess! Popularity can really work on your side for these parties. Why you ask? Because if you bring 9 girls to your pin-up party then you get the ultimate Boudoir Divas’ hookup, a free Package #1 Boudoir Session ($99) AND a 5×7 book worth $295 AND you earn a free slideshow for you and all your girls, which would be $199 each!
So let’s get this party started! Andale, andale!
I went to see this pretty lady on the opening night of her show at Planet Hollywood in Vegas. Afterward she was eating at the restaurant that we were, so when she was leaving I sheepishly asked for a pic with her.
How cool would it be if Holly Madison came in for a boudoir shoot!? Hmmmm….. :) Marissa
Ollie called our studio a few weeks ago to book a photo shoot (We do portrait sessions too!). She sounded so excited when explaining to me that she would be entering a contest conducted by Harper’s Bazaar magazine. The prestigious fashion magazine is doing a nationwide search for fabulous women in their 20s to 60-plus for its Fabulous at Every Age contest.
If you’d like to read more details about the contest, check out blog.newsok.com
I love this excerpt from the article because it is right in line with how all of us at THE BOUDOIR DIVAS feel about celebrating each woman’s unique beauty: “Coco Chanel said, ‘Nature gives you the face you have at 20; it is up to you to merit the face you have at 50.’ We celebrate women at every age because great style is eternal,” said Glenda Bailey, the magazine’s editor-in-chief.
Without being any more specific, Ollie told me she will be entering in the 60-plus category ;). She brought in three outfits, along with her hair and make-up stylist, Denise, from Salon Rouge in Pacific Beach. Here are a few of our favorite shots…
While Ollie was at our studio, she told me and Marissa a little about her background in fashion. We were like two little children during story time just amazed at all her interesting experiences! She spent several years as a buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City before establishing her own clothing business, Capriccio, in Arizona. I was blown away at hearing that her store was 10,000 square feet! Ollie also shared with us that she just recently published a memoir called “Fashion Diva: My Life, Loves, and Lessons.”
About a week after her photo shoot, a package arrived at the studio addressed to Marissa and Crystal.. Ollie is so sweet; she mailed us a copy of her book! I just started reading it this past weekend and am looking forward to learing more about this special woman.
I also wanted to share a photograph of Ollie that she allowed me to scan while here for her session.
The photo was taken by famous photographer, Horst P. Horst. You can see that Horst was a master at unique lighting..
Ollie has quite a story to share!
Visitors to www.harpersbazaar.com can vote on their favorites, so keep an eye out for Ollie and cast your vote for this Fabulous woman!
P.S. Shout out to Jenn, Founder of The Diva Center, for telling Ollie where to find us!
So 3 years ago I started San Diego’s premier boudoir photography studio, THE BOUDOIR DIVAS. I had serious fantasies about what it would become someday but I never imagined it would happen so quickly. At that time Kimberlee (yes we met on Craigslist) was mine and Weston’s fabulous assistant, taking on more and more responsibility everyday. Before we new it she was shooting boudoir, helping with the business model and marketing, and helping me train new photographers that came through the door. Those “new” photographers are now pros and also play a serious role here, Crystal and Deena, you two rock! Anyway, the studio, then Woman Captured, was receiving countless emails from photographers wondering how we photographed and handled our boudoir clients. It was then that Kimberlee and I gave up our social life for a few months and wrote “The Boudoir Divas Bad-Ass Training Guide.” The book had rave reviews and Kimberlee and I launched the educational portion of our business where we held workshops and traveled around speaking to other photogs.
In this time-frame Kimberlee was hugely considering opening her own boudoir studio in the South to be closer to her family. So about a year ago she left the nest and started to prepare for her boudoir studio. A few things happened during that time, her parents moved back to So Cal, and she and I realized that we were waaaaay more effective when we were sitting side by side and working together. So we revisited the idea of her becoming a partner (actual co-owner) here in the San Diego boudoir studio and we soon realized that this was the plan both of us were most excited to pursue.
So, here she is, sitting across the desk from me in “OUR” office. Yay! We are ready to take on the world together! I have a feeling with the studio filled with 5 unstoppable women now, things will only get more exciting from here. Welcome home bitner (our nickname for business partner)!
Here is a video with us talking about our plans… note that the webisodes we talk about are more for the education of photographers and will be on www.thedivasblog.com You are welcome to check that blog our if you are curious.
So that’s what new here! Check back to learn see more fun changes at the studio! :) Marissa

I received this email a few days ago…
I wanted to thank you so much for giving me such a fabulous experience at your studio. My husband and I absolutely LOVE the photos! Thank you for letting me feel like a supermodel for a day, and I look forward to another shoot with the Boudoir Divas in the future!
Thank you, Jennifer, for allowing us to share a few of your gorgeous images! xoxo, Crystal
I received a fun email today that I want to share with all of you! I love it when my clients keep in touch and fill me in on the “happenings” of their pics from time to time ;). Here’s what Alicia wrote:
Aaren and I are doing great. He put all the pictures onto his new iphone so he can look at them all the time, wherever he is. I caught him in Ralphs last week while we were in line. Tehe. Thanks again for the beautiful pictures I will treasure forever.
I had to read it out loud to the girls here in the office because I thought that was so cute!! Thanks for sharing that little fun fact, Alicia!
