Read on to learn more about boudoir photography, the boudoir photo shoot experience when working with me at Andreea B. Ballen Photography, news, tips and insights — PLUS see photos from client’s photo sessions and hear about their experiences in their own words.

“Andreea is beyond amazing. From the moment we first spoke on the phone, to the first time I met her, it was like we were friends for years: she makes you feel so comfortable with yourself, and that was what I was most nervous about. This was my first time ever doing a photoshoot like this, and it well exceeded any of my expectations. I would recommend anyone looking to do something as a gift for themselves, their husbands or just for fun to book a shoot with Andreea. Hands down she is amazing. I can’t wait to do another one with her. The photos came out better than I could have ever imagined.” — Danielle Z.
