Hi sister! Welcome to my very own passion project, and hands down my favorite part of our business. BARELY BOUDOIR. Since becoming a mom to two girls, my love for women has absolutely exploded. Seeing women learn to love themselves and feel empowered in their truest and most authentic state is one of the greatest joys in my life. In experiencing my own births, as well as being honored to capture the birth of a dear friend, my eyes have been opened to how awe inspiring women truly are. Our strength, resilience and beauty are unmatched in this world, and are worthy of the utmost appreciation. Boudoir is so much more than sexy pictures of your body. It is a true celebration of all you are as a woman, and a slap in the face to the world that tells us we aren’t beautiful the way we are.
EVERYBODY is safe at Barely
Your body - however you choose to show up - is perfect in every way. The beauty about womanhood is that WE get to decide what makes us feel beautiful, and there is no right or wrong way to do so. For some women that’s a spray tan, professional hair and makeup, and lash extensions. For others it’s a bare face, perfectly imperfect skin, and embracing your hair’s natural texture. For some it’s beautiful lingerie, and others an oversized t-shirt. There is no one right way to be yourself, as long as it’s true and authentic to you. At Barely, we embrace ALL choices women make to feel beautiful - from Brazilian waxes to au natural. It is all beautiful, and it is all welcome. You are so, so safe here.
"AMAZING. Taking boudoir photos with Christiana was SO fun. Not only did the photos turn out absolutely incredible, but the entire experience was so empowering. I was a little apprehensive going into the session, but Christiana hyped me up and made me feel so comfortable. I highly recommend bringing your best friend with you and making a girls day out of it. I can't say enough positive things about Christiana. I walked away from this experience feeling so beautiful and confident."
a note about our packages ..
some packages include a combination of professional makeup and wax options. I cannot reiterate enough that absolutely ZERO of these are expected for your boudoir session. The option is simply there for the convenience of women who are interested in the services offered, so that they don’t have to search for qualified, reputable, and talented professionals on their own. If you are not interested in any of the mentioned services, or would prefer to book them elsewhere, please select an alternative package that best meets your desires.
You'll be able to choose from three thoughtfully curated packages, designed to give options for every girl's desired budget and experience. From a no fuss mini session to our all inclusive Luxe package, which has it ALL - professional makeup, wax options, and a beautiful linen flat lay album valued at $300 alone. Think of it as the secret treasure your great grandkids find tucked away in the attic one day.
From there I walk with you through it all. From wardrobe recs, to talking through all of my tips and tricks to make your session one you adore (here's a freebie, bring a friend!)
You deserve a boudoir experience that celebrates femininity, womanhood, and ALL you are. The studio ends up sounding like a middle school sleepover, full of giggles and cheers as we AMP YOU UP.
Barely provides a safe, luxury boudoir experience. Your ease and comfortability are top priority, and whether choosing boudoir as a gift for your partner or yourself, it is ultimately an investment in your womanhood and a celebration of all you are. On average, Barely girls spend $975 on their boudoir experience.

"Gah Christiana is amazing. I went into shooting my session nervous and self conscious about my postpartum body but she proved that I shouldn't have been! She truly made me feel comfortable and got all the right angles. It was so much fun and I can't recommend it enough, especially to mamas who need a boost."
