PERSONAL PORTRAITS JUST FOR YOU

Happy autumn darlings! Sooo not only is The Boudoir Cafe the #1 best boudoir photographer in LA, we also happen to be one of the top general photographers as well! Yes, our boudoir is renowned --- but so is the work of our other photo studio, CherieFoto. My style -- and indeed the style of Hedley and everyone on our wonderful team -- tends to the innovative, the imaginative, the whimsical, and (often) reaches into the deep recesses of the sublime.

Usually, for most boudoir photo sessions, our team at The Boudoir Cafe sees girls come in asking for fake lashes; or have gotten eyelash extensions beforehand (especially if it's for a special occasion like a wedding.) Our makeup artiste personally prefers the fake eyelashes. They add volume and sexiness in a pinch! You can bat those beauties at the camera for hours! But, while both fake eyelashes and eyelash extensions have both been on the market for quite a while (and have some proven great results -- as you can see from many of our photos) they do have their downsides. The thing about these two products is: 1. Fake lashes are just that: fake. They are glued on, and they fall off. Yes, they will stay on for the duration of your shoot (and probably for the rest of the day); and The Boudoir…
