"I booked this shoot as a gift to my husband and it quickly became so much more. Nova was so great at communicating and giving me all the information I would need to make my shoot successful! She made the process fun! During my shoot she made it so easy and made me feel comfortable! Her attention to detail is amazing, she knows exactly what is needed to get the best photos! This ended up being a gift to myself as well. I left the studio each time feeling beautiful! If you're considering a boudoir session, do it!!"

“I recently turned 51 and have had some pretty big changes in my life over the last several years, right up until last month. I've wanted to do [a boudoir session] for quite some time, and after I got over the last hurdle I had, I knew it was time… I’m amazed at the photos. Some of them I can't believe it's me! Makes me feel incredible! I got to be in a make believe world for a little while… I didn't really have an exact idea how it was going to go, but I think it's pretty much what I was imagining. [The best part was] how patient and helpful you are! I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, and your guidance and expertise made the session just perfect. Thank you so much for making me feel so comfortable!”

"Having a boudoir session is something I've always wanted to do. I felt like I was ready. It was kind of a "coming of AGE" thing for me to do. On the day of my session I was scared to death. I was very nervous. I didn't really know what to expect. Afterward I felt amazing. I felt empowered. I felt pretty. I saw myself a little differently. When I first saw my images, I was surprised! I felt like they were absolutely beautiful, which was again, a surprise for me. Some of them, I wasn't sure they were really me, but they are! I was very happy. Often women my age wouldn't do a shoot like this, for a number of reasons... The reality is we need to do what makes us feel good. Step out of our comfort zone, our age self-imposed rut."

"I was blown away with everything - from hair & makeup to the way the location was beautifully set up. What an experience! I felt so comfortable and confident through the whole process... Every woman should experience a boudoir session! Nova made me feel like a model. She's going to help a lot of women empower their inner goddess." 

“Thank you so much for today. It made me feel empowered, like a goddess, and really just down right beautiful. You made the whole environment so relaxing and comfortable, I totally forgot about my body insecurities! I am shocked and blown away that these photos are me and am realizing that I’m very hard on myself. This little boost is good for me. There are so many photos it’s ridiculous! I seriously can’t believe how beautiful these photos are. I honestly didn’t recognize myself at first. Thank you for making me feel like a Queen for the day!”  

"I think EVERY woman should do a boudoir photo shoot! I felt so beautiful and perfect. I literally felt like a supermodel!! After seeing how stunning and absolutely gorgeous I turned out in these photos my self confidence has definitely gone up! When I share these pictures with friends and see the reactions on their face and hear things like “omg, that’s you?, you look stunning, gorgeous, flawless…
It was all that I was expecting and MORE!!
I loved every bit of it. How Nova made me feel so beautiful and walked/guided me through every step of the way! I didn’t have to worry about a single thing from the time that I booked with her, to the time of my shoot:) Thanks again for such an amazing experience."

"WOW is all I can say! From someone who was as nervous as can be...and almost cancelled the shoot multiple times...to feeling the most EMPOWERED I've ever felt in my life (at age 50 no less!) I am now recommending this to every woman who will listen!..."

"This was one of the best experiences I've had and if you have ever thought about doing a boudoir shoot all I can say is DO IT!! I took a leap out of my comfort zone and Nova was AMAZING. She ensures you feel comfortable during the shoot and helps with ALL the prep weeks before the shoot. Thank you so much Nova!!"

“I did a boudoir shoot to free myself from things that were holding me back and to try and let my inner spirit shine. It was bottled for such a long time.
Nova made me feel wonderful as a person. There was no judgment.
The session made me feel like… it doesn’t matter if you have flaws… 
and that I can do anything. I felt so free and like I was the only one in the room… it was liberating and awesome! I would tell everybody don’t wait - book!!!”

"Originally, I wanted to do (a boudoir photoshoot) as a fun gift for my husband before I started trying to have a family. But as I started doing more research, I realized I also really wanted to do the shoot for myself. I thought I might be nervous, but I wasn't at all! I felt so glamorous having my hair and makeup done and wearing beautiful pieces. Nova made me so comfortable during the session, it was such a blast!! It completely boosted my self-confidence and self-image!!! I felt so beautiful and sexy and the photos are better than I could've imagined. Such an amazing shift in my perspective of how I view myself now. It was all that I was expecting and more! I had so much fun, it was a blast working with Nova and the images are absolutely gorgeous! I wouldn't change a thing! I would just like to say a sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart! I walk away from this experience with a better mindset about my body and beautiful images! I'm so grateful."

"Hi Nova, I just wanted to let you know that my album arrived today and it is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for everything you did to ensure it would arrive on time... We did a first look photo shoot and at the end I presented him with his gift and got the photographer to capture his reaction and it was priceless! He loves it and says it is the best gift he's ever received hands down. Thank you.🥰" "
