Boudoir photography is gaining popularity with printed albums as pre-wedding and anniversary gifts. By definition, it is a photography session where you wear sexy outfits, lingerie, dresses, or even go scantily clad and get your pictures taken. In actuality, it is so much more than that. What makes Emily Sacco’s Boudoir experience so special? Just that… the experience. Women come to Emily to bare it all, and leave the studio with a new outlook on self confidence. So what’s holding you back?
A common misconception about boudoir photography is that you have to be a model or fit a specific mold. This is not the case. According to Emily, many of her clients come to her when they are feeling their lowest. They have lost themselves in their roles as mothers, career women, survivors, divorcees or just the day to day. Self care and self worth go hand in hand. When we are neglecting ourselves it has an impact on so many aspects of our life. Refocusing that spotlight, literally, sheds a light on just how amazing we truly are.
“Transformation happens on the inside and the outside. Don't be fooled. Makeup and lingerie don't transform you- YOU transform you. You get to love and appreciate the body you are in RIGHT NOW in a brand new way. Boudoir is an incredible process. The woman who enters is nervous and unsure. It's only natural. Why would anyone go into a boudoir shoot for the first time thinking it's going to be a song and dance? I get it... this is a BIG DEAL. That's why I'm here with you every step of the way!” - Emily Sacco
Emily has mastered the art of Boudoir photography. From helping her clients choose flattering lingerie, to posing them in sensual but elegant ways guaranteed to make them feel beautiful inside and out. Speaking of guarantee, Emily has a 100% money back guarantee if her clients are not happy with their photos. Emily says this has yet to happen. Most of her ordering appointments end in tears…happy tears!
Boudoir is about celebrating yourself, at any stage in life. Wherever you are on your “self love” journey, boudoir can be a wonderful step in a positive direction towards more self-love, self-acceptance and self-care. When you see the photos for the first time, they should make you feel beautiful in every way and love every inch of your body. In the words of Emily, “You are never going to be younger than you are right now.” So go for it!

The Process, by Emily:
It all starts with a consultation where we will go over all the details and we will start planning your dream session. After you book I will send you a ton of emails leading up to the shoot that will go over EVERYTHING so you feel fully prepared and ready for your session. You’ll know when to wax, when to get a signature facial, where to shop and what to wear for your body type and skin tone. The whole process is designed to get you excited about lingerie and to enter a new sexy side of yourself that you maybe haven’t seen for a while or are completely new to! You are never alone during the entire planning process. I am just a call/text/DM away from answering any questions you may have or to give a second opinion.
On the day of your session you will arrive at the private Oldfields Studio in Palmyra where you’ll get your hair and makeup done by my on-site makeup artist and I’ll go through all your outfits. I’ll pick out different blankets and furniture to compliment your attire and build a beautiful unique session just for you. Feeling excited about the possibility, but overwhelmed by nerves because you couldn’t possibly pose for Boudoir? Don’t worry- honestly- I tell people if you speak English and are human you will completely rock your session! I pose you from the top of your head all the way down to your toes. There will never be a time where I tell you to “act sexy” or give vague instructions. ANYONE can have an amazing Boudoir Experience and EVERYONE should! Don’t believe me? All of the women featured in my portfolio are REAL women with the same insecurities as you.
After the session you’ll be invited back to the studio 1-2 weeks later for your ordering appointment and image reveal! We will look through all of your images and I’ll help guide you in the album making process. Once you’ve chosen your images, I’ll create an album spread for you to approve. This is my favorite step of the experience because everyone always cries happy tears and my heart is so full because of it! It truly is magic when you see an image of yourself that you love!
We are so proud to be partnering with Emily Sacco Boudoir Photography, and promoting self confidence!
Location: Oldfields Photography studio based in Palmyra, Va, just right outside of Charlottesville, Virginia.
