When Ms. L booked us for her boudoir session, she had one concern.

“I am a pretty androgynous individual, so I am wondering if I would be able to blend masculinity and femininity.”

First of all, yes.

Second, that’s what a boudoir session with us is all about — embracing your true self!

We want you to feel like YOU during (and after) your session. That’s why we customize each session to our clients.

We’d never want our clients to wear outfits they don’t like or pretend to be someone they’re not.

Unless that’s your thing.

A little role play never hurt anyone. ;)

Ms. L brought lots of great clothing options, like hoodies, dress shirts and Calvin Klein underwear.

She said her favorite part of the experience was being able to wear sweatpants during her session. Who knew sweatpants could be so sexy?

It’s about this time of the year that I start fantasizing about my next vacation. Balancing everything takes its toll. 

Work. Kids. Relationships. 

It can be hard to remember to take time for yourself. But it’s so important. 

Eating right. Exercising. Alone time. Friend time. And whatever else you need to be happy (it usually involves chocolate, right???)

But what if you really want to treat yourself? What would you choose?

  1. Chocolate (duh)

  2. Champagne

  3. Clothes

  4. Makeup

  5. Hair

  6. All of the Above

If you said F, then you’re on the right web page. Which is the same page as Under the Garter.

Spoiler Alert: Boudoir Photography gives you all of these treats! 

Mrs. T recently got to experience the magic from a luxurious boudoir session!

A lot of people feel overwhelmed or intimidated by the thought of getting into sensual clothing and being photographed. That’s why we break each phase down into smaller parts to ensure you are informed and feel as comfortable as possible!

From the first email, we send out a list of tips and tricks to prep in the time leading up to your shoot.

Then when you walk into our LoHi Denver neighborhood studio, you’re welcomed warmly and put under the expert care of our renowned hair and makeup stylists. They get you ready for the camera to capture your beauty and also give you some tips to take home!

From there, clothes!

Melissa took my big pile of clothes and turned them into some amazing combinations.

The difference between selfies and working with an internationally-published photographer is huge. Establishing a rapport helps you to relax and let you purr. 

Ray was super easy and comfortable to be around, which is a good thing when you are sitting around in your skivvies and/or naked.
— Mrs. T

All that posing can be hard work, but that’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a post-session massage the next day!

Our favorite part of the whole process is the photo reveal, which happens later. It’s amazing to watch as people see themselves from a different perspective. The best we’ve heard it put is “through the eyes of your lover.”

Doing this shoot made me realize how incredibly critical I was being of myself, and that I should not have been. The images were gorgeous.

Part of the reason we do this is to help change the world one photo at a time. We asked Mrs. T,  what would she would tell a friend who wanted to do boudoir?

Don’t wait. Just book it. The clock keeps ticking, and despite all the things you don’t feel are ‘ready or perfect’ for pictures - this team will bring out both your inner and outer beauty. The only thing you’ll regret is not doing it sooner.

“I want to be more confident.”

How many times have we asked ourselves this question?

I know I have. Sometimes multiple times a day. Confidence really does seem to be the key from which all other things flow. Friendship. Relationships. Career. Successes.

Not that we can’t have those things without confidence, but you know what I mean.

Without confidence, doubt seems to always find a way to creep in and sabotage things.

Fortunately, there are a lot of ways that we can grow our confidence. We can increase our confidence in an activity through practice. We can strengthen our confidence in our relationships and friendships through communication and trust. We can achieve confidence in our career through learning, mentoring, and preparation.

A trip to Under the Garter is a journey of confidence. From the moment you email us about booking a boudoir session, we give you information to make informed decisions. We guide you through the process of looking and feeling your best!

Mrs. M recently experienced this for herself.

I emailed Under the Garter and within the same day I had a response. Very easy process.
— Mrs. M

We know how intimidating the entire process can feel. That’s why we listen and communicate with you every step of the way.

Not many people know this, but a successful boudoir session starts before you even step foot in the building. We supply you with information to look and feel like a deity.

The tips about prepping your skin was amazing. It helped tremendously!
— Mrs. M

By the time you step foot in our LoHi neighborhood studio in Denver, any doubts you might still have will be eliminated when you sit down with our world class hair and makeup artists.

This is the same treatment that supermodels receive for international photo shoots. And the best part? They love giving you little tips and tricks you can use at home!

Working with Ray inspires its own kind of confidence. Being an internationally published photographer means that he knows how to work with you, the light, and the vintage furniture in our studio to help you look stunning.

Afterwards, when you get to your photo reveal, the effect is complete.

I still can’t believe it’s me. Definitely feel more confident about myself today!
— Mrs. M

Though we’ve helped hundreds of people increase their confidence, it still feels powerful and amazing every time we see someone look at themselves with new eyes.

Recover Your Mojo

boudoir photography denver white lace mom.jpg
boudoir photography denver redhead mom.jpg

Having kids is one of the single most awesome and excruciating things that a person can do. 

We love our kids. Especially after they finally stay in bed after getting up for the umpteenth time. 

We’d do anything for them. We’d run into a burning building to rescue them. We’d wrestle a bear to save them. Hell, if we were starving on a deserted island, we’d give them our last piece of chocolate. 

Well, maybe half of our last piece of chocolate. 

The point is, that we love our kids, but damned if raising them isn’t exhausting and stressful. 

I remind myself over and over again that it’s worth it, even as I find another gray hair or discover yet another wrinkle sneaking its way onto my face. (For real, it should be illegal. I’m not THAT old!)

And that much sleep deprivation has a way of playing tricks on you. Like making you think that you lost your mojo. Even when all of your friends, lovers, and family tell you otherwise. 

I mean, they’re kind of required to say nice things about you, right? 

I understand all of this. Not only from hearing it from so many of our clients, but from living through it myself. 

That’s why I know of the transformative power of boudoir photography.  

Let’s face it. We want to look better than good. We want to look sexy.

We want to exude that same mojo that got us our lover and snagged us all of those kids in the first place. 

That’s why Under the Garter gives you a world class experience. We treat you. We spoil you. We help you craft a perfect look for your session. We pose you. And then we capture you in all of your badass glory. 

Because, at the end of the day, this is all about you. About letting your natural beauty shine through. About capturing that elusive bit of essence that everyone loves about you. 

We do it by sending you a preparation list to help your hair and skin look their best.

We do it by only working with one person each day so that you never feel rushed, only relaxed. 

We do it by working with the best hair stylists and makeup artists in Denver.

We do it by working with you to carefully select outfits that compliment and accentuate your natural beauty. 

We do it by spoiling you with champagne and chocolate and helping you feel like you’re the royalty that you are. 

That way, when you get to your photo reveal, you can see finally yourself as others see you: as a being of pure beauty.

Being one of Denver’s best boudoir studios comes with a lot of responsibility.

We love what we do! In order to keep photographing the wonderful people of Colorado, we craft the entire boudoir experience with your comfort in mind.

That includes protecting your privacy!

“Do I have to put my pictures on your blog?”

We get that question a lot.

The answer is a quick and emphatic NO!

You are in complete and total control of your photographs.

The photos you see here on our blog (and the rest of our website, social media, etc.) are here because our clients have graciously signed a waiver allowing us to use their photos and write about their experience.

Even then, we only share within your comfort level!

Clients can allow us to share all of their photos or just ones that still allow for anonymity.

And, of course, we NEVER share a client’s real name.

Mrs. H recently visited our LoHi neighborhood studio for a luxurious boudoir session.

A self-professed Type A personality, she said had an amazing experience from the very start.

I loved all the information sent before my session. I felt totally prepared!
— Mrs. H

When you’re comfortable, you take your best pictures! Which is especially important with boudoir photography. From your first email to your follow up survey, we craft every encounter with your comfort and ease in mind.

Melissa was a joy to work with, she answered any questions I had promptly and made sure I was ready for my shoot. The hair and makeup ladies were so fun! I adored chatting with them while they made me pretty. Ray is AWESOME! He made me feel so comfortable and relaxed.  Start to finish every interaction with Under the Garter was fantastic!
— Mrs. H

Boudoir is about so much more than the photos you get. It’s about creating an experience that will last a lifetime. It’s about seeing yourself through the lens that your lover sees you.

Seeing my portraits for the first time was a little emotional. I thought to myself,  “There’s the woman I’ve been missing!” I felt sexy during the shoot but seeing the proof on screen was a self confidence boost!
— Mrs. H
boudoir photography denver lace velvet couch.jpg

And that’s really the most significant part of the experience: the change you experience from seeing yourself through the lens of our internationally published photographer.

It creates a ripple effect that starts deep within yourself and extends outward to your partner and then to your entire world. The confidence boost many of clients experience is priceless!

At that point, boudoir becomes much more than a custom wedding, anniversary, or birthday present.

Boudoir is a gift from yourself to yourself!

We LOVE this men's intimate wear | Boudoir Photography | Denver

We LOVE this men’s intimate wear

boudoir photography denver viktor men underwear chair.jpg
boudoir photography denver viktor men underwear.jpg

We love promoting intimate wear on our website, but it’s not often we have a recommendation for our male and masculine presenting clients.

All of that changes today.

Say hello to Viktor.

Their website says they’re the world’s most comfortable, best looking underwear and we have to agree.

We’ve seen all of their products and believe me when I say these are THE SOFTEST underwear I’ve ever touched. Honestly, I’m tempted to buy a pair for myself. You’re definitely going to want to buy them for a special someone in your life.

We all talk a lot about self care when it comes to women, but it’s just as important for men. And wearing these super soft, luxurious underwear all day will definitely feel like self care. And, as you can see, they’re pretty damn sexy so they’re going to feel like self care for you when he takes off his pants. ;)

The very best part? Under the Garter clients and fans get 15% off their orders! Just use the discount code underthegarter15 at checkout!

(Photos provided by Viktor) (No, this isn’t a sponsored post. We just really love their product).
