This was an amazing experience. Although I went in nervous and overwhelmed, I felt beautiful and safe. Yana was very kind, and understanding, and never made me feel insecure. The photos look fantastic; I was blown away by them. I did this for a wedding gift for my husband. He loved the photos and the album was beautiful. I love that the touch ups and editing of the photos didn’t make them look fake, or over edited, it was so slight that the pictures still showed individual uniqueness; which I love because we’re all unique in beauty. I would recommend to everyone to do this type of photo shoot at least once in their life. Yana was fabulous!”
Before I got married I wanted to surprise my husband and wanted to do a boudoir shoot. At first I felt a bit apprehensive and a bit shy. I can’t explain how comfortable Yana made me feel. I felt so empowered and I really felt sexy during the shoot. I would highly recommend Yana to anyone and everyone (I already have).
The thought of getting your picture taken in your panties is scary. However, my experience with Lacie Lou was fantastic. Yana made me feel comfortable right from the start. She helped pick the right outfits matching them to the best backgrounds. She was careful with her work; she took the time to fix my hair, or let me know if a bra strap was twisted. Walking out of her studio you feel like a million bucks.
I debated for months whether or not to get these shots taken. Yana took the hesitation away quickly and the look on my fiancé's face when he opened the book was completely worth it. I've already recommended Lacie Lou to several friends. Thank you Yana!
I was so nervous for weeks leading up to my session, but I was so comfortable in her studio that it seemed completely normal to be lounging around half nude. Yana gave excellent pointers on how to smile and pose and I couldn't be happier with my photos. Neither can my boyfriend!
I have never participated in a boudoir session before – my experience with Yana was the first one. I must admit I was nervous, and weary as to how the session will be. Yana makes you feel comfortable, because first and foremost she speaks to you at an eye level – makes you feel engaged in the experience and allows you to be yourself. She went over how the photo shoot will go, what to expect and she really had the patience to guide me through the process. We changed into a few outfits, and each of them was unique in its own way. Yana knew what she was doing at every step – most of all she let me easy into the poses, and the nervousness I felt quickly lifted. The shots she created were amazingly beautiful with the right touch of elegance and sexiness! I would recommend any woman who wants to experience something different to try a photo boudoir with Yana – she’s easygoing, kind in her approach, funny and will make you feel 100% comfortable in the skin you’re in. Thanks Yana!
I had the BEST time. It really was a special treat for myself as well, getting the full package, with Hurmat Maqsood doing my hair and makeup. Hurmat, is great. I let her do what she wanted with my hair and face, and the results were stunning. She has MAJOR skill. I'm even going to see her on her own for other services she offers :)
Yana helped me pick out my outfits, and accessories, since I brought tons. She was very into making me look my best. From the get-go, it was very classy, and FUN... I was so nervous, I was very relieved!
She placed me where she wanted, and instructed me on how to create the perfect poses.
When I got the proofs from Yana, I was shocked. I couldn't believe what an amazing job she did. Not that I didn't think she was the best, but I have never seen myself like that before. She listened to absolutely everything I said when we talked about how I would like the book to look. And her suggestions worked well with my style. She knows what she's doing.
When I went to pick up the book, she was very, very accommodating. I live out of Calgary, and happened to forget our pickup time, and day even. I was able to come in later on, and I got the best little present bag ever. I LOVE her packaging, so pretty.
The final package I received was breath taking. I'm still holding onto it, which is really hard because I really REALLY want to show it off to him.
Long story short...
I will come back to you Yana... one day :)
Thank you so much to the both of you.
"I thought about doing a boudoir shoot for almost a year before I actually bit the bullet and went for it. Even then, I almost backed out before I committed to it. Yana helped get me there and I never looked back. She was a constant help from the start of the process until the last shot, and without her coaching and incredible support this shoot would not have been anywhere as amazing as it turned out to be. If you're worried about having a camera pointed at you in next to no clothing, don't be-- Yana makes it a no-big-deal experience. If you're worried about posing-- Yana is very good at talking you through it and helping to position you in the most flattering way. She's got a creative eye and it translates to gorgeous photos. With Yana's talent, an amazing studio, and a stunning end product, you cannot go wrong with Lacie Lou Photography! Thank you Yana-- my album was very well received "
I am getting married this year and wanted to do something special for my husband-to-be. I was very uneasy leading up to this whole experience as I am very self conscious to begin with, however from the make up to the help with outfit selection to the shoot itself I was made to feel confident and beautiful. My photos are absolutely stunning, Yana did an outstanding job!! I recommend her to anyone I know looking into boudoir.”
What an amazing experience! For someone who had no self confidence 3 years ago and has worked my butt off to learn to see my beauty, inside and out, a Boudoir photo shoot was about proving to myself that I can be confident and beautiful and sexy! During the shoot I felt like I was HAWT! Thanks to the encouragement of a wonderful photographer. But the best moment was plugging the disk into my computer and seeing the beauty and the sexiness that came through in the photos. I have never seen myself from so many different angles, and was purely amazed at the quality of the photography. I recommend every woman do something like this, whether it be for yourself or someone special! Thank you!!!
I’ve always wanted to get boudoir photos done, however I always talked myself out of it. My advice to anyone now, is just do it! Don’t hesitate, don’t talk yourself out of it or let people question why you would do it. Trust me, it was a fantastic experience, one that I will always remember! Yana was exceptional in getting to know me, and what I wanted out of my shoot. She made me feel tremendously comfortable. Having no professional photographs of myself prior, Yana was a jem in guiding me through ideas & positions. I could not be happier with the way these photos turned out.”
I was so nervous about doing my photo shoot and feeling very awkward, but as soon as I met Yana I felt so much better! She was so friendly and helpful, and truly made me feel beautiful. She walked me through each photo and gave me great tips and pointers. I would highly recommend Lacie Lou Photography to everyone. It was so much fun, maybe I'll do it again!
I was so nervous about the whole boudoir photography photo shoot at first.. I had never done one and had NO CLUE what to expect.
Yana did an amazing amazing job she made me feel so comfortable and confident for the shoot before the camera even came out. Like I said I had never done a photo shoot of this type before and she did a fantastic job assisting me through all of it, she showed me some poses that I could rock and she even showed me a few pictures after each frame so I could get a feel for how things were going. I LOVED LOVED LOVED the whole experience I would really recommend Yana at Lacie Lou photography even if you're just thinking about a boudoir photo shoot she truly is amazing and I promise you will love all the photos that turn out she does a phenomenal job! I just recently did this photo shoot and I am already anxiously planning another one!!
Hi Yana. I just wanted to thank you so much for your sweet care of my wife. She loved every minute of her time with you. She told me how hard you worked and how much fun you both had. I am glad you were able to help her relax and enjoy herself. I can't wait to see the wonderful work you did and have these beautiful memories of the love of my life! Thank you so very much again!
