Boudoir vs Glamour
Boudoir is typically a lingerie photo-shoot. Glamour or contemporary portraits can still look sexy (if you want them to) but are often in any outfit you'd like.

“I’m totally freaking out.” said nearly every woman I’ve ever photographed

“I’m totally freaking out!” said nearly every woman I’ve ever photographed. It’s ok; you’re normal. Unless you’re a professional model, you probably have a little apprehension about having a boudoir shoot and for most women that’s an understatement. You might be surprised to hear there is no such thing as a photogenic person. Being “photogenic”…

Eight Things You Should Look For When Selecting A Boudoir Photographer You don’t want to be photographed by some creepy guy in his basement. 1.

Glamorous | Boudoir photography by Rachel Owen

For over eighteen years now I have been a professional photographer, and the past eight of those years empowering women to feel beautiful in our studio in Lemont, IL. has been my passion and my favorite genre to shoot. I've recently been awarded a wppi master certificate which took years of hard work to achieve. I photograph women ages 8-80 of all body types. I see an amazing transformation in front of my lens with them all. From watching a woman walk in shy and nervous to her relaxing while having professional hair & makeup services and finally becoming confident as she looks-feels amazing and finally seeing her inner beauty in her final photos. Photography has been the greatest gift I could have been given- it has given me so much joy and allowed me to connect and bring out beauty in others they couldn't see. I truly believe that it's just inner beauty that's always there but when you connect with someone - when they feel confident the beauty radiates off them and it shows up in photos. Whether you choose a boudoir lingerie style photo-shoot or a contemporary portrait or a very glamorous photo-shoot and I can promise you will not only look and feel amazing but be comfortable in a non-intimidating environment at our storefront studio in all while getting the most beautiful photos you've ever had.

It was very good atmosphere in the studio. Rachel made me feel very comfortable,  she was so helpful with everything. This was definitely life time experience. Worth the time and money.

The best part for me was the atmosphere.  Walk in nervous and are greeted by energetic, fun person and you feel at ease.  When she showed me tbe pictures while shooting I was in awe of how amazing I felt. Then coming to view pictures I felt on top of tbe world. I felt true beauty on the outside too. When I received my photos I was in tears. These pictures were for my husband for me it was way more than just pictures.  The confidence I had, the way i felt about myself, all of it. I looked at those pictures thinking its me. I'm not covered up in makeup its just me. I have never felt so beautiful in my life. Rachel has changed my life in knowing I am beautiful and I am more than just a mom and wife, I'm still me!

From when I called to book and first talked to Rachel, to the actual shoot which she made me feel totally comfortable in, to viewing the pictures and the final product everything was wonderful.  I felt excited about the experience after I spoke with Rachel and she emailed tips to get ready, how the pick outfits etc.  The hair and make up was a fun change too.  The best part was feeling confident and positive about doing something for me. It was also so awesome to see my boyfriends face when he opened the pictures too!  I would totally do it again!!

I really enjoyed working with Rachel for my boudoir photo shoot. The whole experience was great! I enjoyed getting my hair and makeup done and Rachel did a great job making me feel comfortable while taking the photos! The photos turned out great! They were a gift for my husband on our wedding day and he loved them! I would definitely recommend Rachel for your upcoming photo shoot!

Rachel was amazing! The atmosphere is relaxing, calming and comfortable. She has a way to help you become comfortable and let your beautiful light shine. I loved so many of my photos, it was hard to choose what one to print. There is a special glow you have leaving the studio, a unique experience that you have to try. Even if it is just one time.  I cannot wait to do a second session with her again!
