Private and Intimate Studios
The Boudoir Café features its own very private intimate studio in Malibu, CA as well as shooting in exclusive studios in luxury hotels in Las Vegas, NV.
The Boudior Café is all about provocative ambiance, sensuality, eroticism and downright sexiness. A boudoir photo shoot is a profoundly personal, luxurious experience and something each gal needs to gift herself at least once in her lifetime. Creating artwork of “intimate you” allows us to capture the many forms of expression you want to explore — we cannot think of anything more fulfilling to do than that!
Cherie and her team at The Boudoir Café have been delivering exceptional, highly artistic photography for 20 years. Together, they transform their clients into a vision, be it a sexy siren, an elegant, sensual beauty, or a wild one darker than 50 shades! Now based in Beverly Hills, CA, Cherie’s been shooting everyone from celebrities to the peoples of of India. Having been all over the world with a camera in her hand for the last 10 years, Cherie has found her personal niche photographing women, uncovering their many desired expressions of sexuality — for themselves and/or for the one (or more!) that they love. Cherie and her team are passionate about the divine feminine, something often lost in today’s highly competitive, multi-tasking society that buries women under career, homemaking, child rearing and exhaustion. Women are sexy, sensual, beautiful creatures and that needs to be captured on film and celebrated for a lifetime!
Sessions designed for you
Expressing the Sexy, Sensual YOU is our job. We start with a design consultation that connects us with your desires and vision. The Boudoir Café sessions are highly customized. Some possibilities to tease you could include a leather-and-lace session to a sexy-fetish or a turn-of-the-century Victorian or Renaissance themed session, or how about a sexy-sporty or sensual, divine feminine, provocative and ethereal.
It’s all about the mood, the styling, and an utter exploration of you (or what’s still hidden in you!). It is a pampering day that you will never forget. The session itself (the best experience ever!) and a post-session consultation to review the images are the next steps, either in person or online, via phone.
