ATTENTION! (please 🙂 )
Felix and Sara are losing their Somerville studio and will no longer be able to photograph boudoir starting March 1st. We are very sad about it. If you’ve ever thought about doing a session with us… February will be our last month. And slots are limited. No pressure. Well, actually… pressure.
Boudoir photography? I could never do that!
It seems crazy, right? But you won’t believe how beautiful and empowered you’ll feel by stripping to your unmentionables for the camera. You’ll really see yourself the way THEY see you. Hollywood and Madison Avenue spend billions trying to convince you that you aren’t pretty enough, young enough, thin enough. But we will show you that you are. Your time is NOW. When you’re awesome! Boudoir photography, it’s such a cool thing to do for yourself and for someone else you love.

12 Reasons We Are Awesome to Work With
1. WE HAVE A REASON FOR BOUDOIR
We are battling the magazines who try to convince you that you aren’t adequate. We use boudoir photography to show you how spectacular you really are.
2. OUR STUDIO IS KILL-ER
We’re talking vintage-y, charming loft with twelve foot ceilings, cool walls, hardwood floors. Amazing.
3. WE CARE ABOUT DETAILS
Sara is your Seventeenth Century lady’s maid. She checks for twisted bra straps, hair ties on wrists, and helps you into that corset.
4. WE TEACH
We not only teach you how to look awesome at your session but Felix also teaches other photographers how to be awesome at private workshops and at the Center for Digital Arts in Waltham MA.
5. WE KNOW BODIES
We’ve been photographing people professionally for thirteen years. We know your best angles.
6. WE DO THE RESEARCH
We are constantly looking at magazines, paintings, photographs, and thinking, “How can we do it DIFFERENTLY?”
7. WE ARE MARRIED
We get along so well and love being with each other. We compliment each other and work together to make each session great.
8. WE AREN'T CHEAP
Strange right? But we never wanted to be the cheapest boudoir photographers. We want to be the best. We want to be worth it.
9. WE PERSONALLY SHOW YOU THE FINISHED IMAGES
No tiny pictures on the web. You come over and sit with us while we show you the awesomeness. We are there to help you choose images in an unobtrusive, relaxed atmosphere. No hard sell.
10. WE ARE OBSESSIVE ABOUT QUALITY
All our albums are pixel perfect. We think about composition, negative space, story telling. Heck, even the stickers on our packages are cool.
11. WE'VE GOT: PRIMPING, POSING, GOLD-FOIL-DIFFUSER THINGIES, COMPOSITION, STEP LADDERS, AND CRAZY-ASS SKILL.
12. OUR WICKED COOL STYLE
You know that same shot you see over and over when you google “boudoir”? That’s not us.
Who Do We Think We Are?
Felix and Sara want to meet you. We dig adventurous and brave people, which you are if you’ve read this far. We love showing people that having their picture taken can be fun and liberating instead of awkward and excruciating.
Here’s the scoop about us: We met each other at Disney World and have been married for twenty four years. We have two awesome kids: Dash, who is seventeen and is incredibly serious about video games, and Magali, who is fourteen and can tell you everything you could ever hope to know about Justin Bieber and nail polish.
We are all kind of geeky. We like sci-fi and musty museums, weird movies and long books.
And we make art. We can prove it if you click BOOK NOW 🙂
More About Felix
Once Felix was in CVS buying some honey roasted cashews. There was one line at the register and two registers open. When one of the registers became free a lady who wasn’t in line quickly stepped up to make a purchase. Maybe she didn’t realize there was only one line but it’s doubtful. He didn’t say anything, though.
Felix’ original rock band lost the “Battle of the Bands” in a tiny club in Orlando to a Ratt cover band. But the important thing is that they had fun and nobody got hurt.
Felix and Sara’s family were walking around in Harvard Square when their six year old daughter, Magali, decided she didn’t want to carry her American Girl doll around and asked Felix to return it to the car for her. As he walked to the car shifting the doll from hand to hand he realized that there is no way for a forty year old man to look cool carrying an American Girl doll through the crowded streets of Harvard Square.
When Felix was four years old he was examining a bug or something on the ground when his three year old brother peed on Felix’ head. Felix was really upset and ran into the house enraged and crying. When he told his mother and all her dinner guests what happened they all started laughing. But it’s not funny.
When Felix was eleven his father bought the wrong size bag ties and couldn’t tie a bunch of cables together because the ties were too small. Felix suggested his father try linking two ties together. His father told him he was “pretty smart.”
Felix has what borders on a disability when it comes to shopping. If Sara sends him to the store to get a box of Cheerios, he will stand in the aisle staring at the wall of choices until it all becomes a huge blur of screaming text and colors. He is unable to differentiate between brands and shapes and names and he quickly becomes paralyzed with overwhelm. Sara does most of the shopping for the family.
More About Sara
When Sara was five she was at a birthday party and was scared of the clown. Then the clown turned out to be her dad. Now she’s scared of her dad. (Just kidding)
When Sara was tiny there was a little fairy gnome sculpture in one of the windows of her family’s garage. She would take special trips to the garage just to see it. Sometimes she would go out there for a visit and it would be gone. And then she would come back and it would be back. That’s because it came to life and went on little walks by itself.
Sara sneezes really loudly. Like, really loudly. Everyone in the room jumps and the guitar on the wall rings for several seconds afterwards. It’s pretty impressive.
Sara loves Coca-cola. It’s her favorite drink. She drinks a lot of it. Is Pepsi OK? No.
In the car, Sara forces her children to listen to NPR instead of Ariana Grande, for some reason. “Earbuds going in,” says twelve year old Magali.
Sara’s older sister said that when the flowers next door got ripe they turned into bees. Sara always walked around the hedge instead of through it.
Sara tries to make all animals look at her. Especially little furry ones. She just wants to pick you up and rub you on her face! You’ll like it! But they probably wouldn’t.
You can take some time just for yourself to feel beautiful. A boudoir photo session with Felix and Sara gives you that. And the images and album we create let you remember how amazing you are right now. We want you to look back on these images in twenty years and wonder why you were so hard on yourself! It makes a great gift for you or that someone who already sees that powerful goddess in you. We provide a comfortable and fun atmosphere that allows you to feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera. Our typical client spends between $1500 and $4000 total on her entire boudoir experience with us. The boudoir session itself is $541. And here’s whatcha get:
•We schedule plenty of time on the day of the shoot to sit down together and plan how the session will go. We are always available for phone consultations before your session.
