The Boudoir experience
A COLLECTION OF SENSUAL, INTIMATE PORTRAITS
The best present that you can give to yourself
The Boudoir Experience
Your life, your love, your experiences, your body: all being celebrated at the same time. I want to capture who you truly are. Your eyes, your curves, your perfection. Maybe you feel insecure, or you feel worried about showing yourself in this light. But I can promise you, you will feel empowered and free. You’re beautiful, just the way you are. Don’t wait for the ‘’one day I will’’, you’re perfect right now.
‘’But I have never been in front of the camera!’’ Don’t worry, we will take our time. You don’t have to show anything that you don’t want to show. Prefer to stay in a jumper and jeans: great! Want to show off some beautiful lingerie? Let’s do it! Want to be naked? Amazing! And the best part: you don’t have to know how to pose! I will show you how from your toes to the tips of your fingers.
Everything will happen according to your own comfort. Are you feeling a bit nervous? No worries! This is completely normal. I’m here to guide you every step of the way and to be your self-love coach!
I want to capture who you truly are, in this specific moment. The edits will be done according to your own style and personality.
*Each session includes a complimentary meet & greet before you book!

Frequently Asked Questions
Before the day of the photoshoot, we will already have communicated by email, text or over the phone. We will meet at the preferred location and have a bit of a chat to get to know eachother a bit better!
Once you feel ready we start taking photos in your regular clothing, just so that you can get used to me and my camera! After a while I will ask you if you feel comfortable going down to lingerie. We will have lots of chats and laughs in between to make you feel comfortable! In between I will show you how to pose. There will always be a pile of blankets near by to cover you up at anytime if you would like so.
At the end I will ask you if you feel comfortable having some nude photographs taken. This is also something we will discuss beforehand! You are the one in CONTROL! If you’ve changed your mind, or you don’t feel like it: that’s absolutely fine. Everything is highly optional!
When we are both happy with the amount of photos, we round the experience up. After which we will both leave the location on our own terms
Usually around two hours! Unless communicated differently.
I always take extra time for boudoir photo sessions so that we can really work slowly and in your own comfort.
Only if you give me permission to do so!
I would never, ever use images without your permission. This is something that we will discuss before the shoot, but also afterwards. If you agree with using some of your images on social media, I would only like to use the ones you truly feel comfortable with!
The joys of living in Scotland!
I will keep a close eye on the weather forecast.
If things look like they will turn for the worst, I will give you a call straight away with various options to reschedule.
Outfit and Styling Tips
I always recommend wearing something in which you feel comfortable and confident! This will show on the photos.
However, whether you want to have a specific style or you’re just unsure about what to wear: I’m happy to give you recommendations beforehand!
Besides this you’re also welcome to wear any items that are in the client wardrobe that I offer when you book a session with me.
Some small tips:
– Bring outfits that make you feel beautiful and relaxed and that you’ll love to see yourself in every time you look at your photographs.
– The days leading up to the shoot, take extra time to take care of your skin, it’s going to be in all the photographs! Drink plenty of water, exfoliate & moisturise
– If you wax and/or shave, make sure to do this a few days before the shoot, to avoid redness or bumpiness on your skin. Please don’t feel like you have to! It’s your body, and you decide what your preference is for your own body hair. Are you worried about this or do you have any concerns? Please tell me!
– Wear loose-fitting, comfortable, easy to remove clothes upon arrival. Tight jeans and jewelry can leave marks on your skin.
– It’s important to eat before your shoot and bring some snacks, trust me: posing can feel like a mini workout!
– This is really a time for YOU! After the photoshoot you might feel tired from all the posing, be extra kind to yourself and take a couple of hours off after the session. Heck, take the entire day off! Make extra cups of tea, have a nice warm bath: relax.
She is such a talented photographer,
but is also thoughtful and considerate regarding aspects around the images themselves - suggestions before the shoot such as what to bring,
commodities during the shoot in order to make you comfortable,
and caring communications after the shoot in regards to yourself and the images.
The photographs speak for themselves,
there is love in every image as she emphasises and celebrates your beauty.
I couldn't recommend her enough and hope I have many more experiences with her.''
and am delighted with the images she provided.
Pre- and post shoot communications have been incredible,
and paperwork was managed professionally and easily.
The shoot itself was on a fairly cold day and Marieke went above and beyond to make me feel physically comfortable (thanks for the blankets and tea!),
as well as being supportive and positive during the shoot
and providing great direction in terms of pose.
Post shoot, the gallery and viewing system was easy to use, beautiful and professional,
and Marieke took a lot of time to go through the images provided with me personally.
Thank you Marieke!''
I always wanted to evaluate it for what it is, in its perfection and beauty.
There are some days where we (and I), see ourselves as too fat or too skinny,
days where we hate our dry skin or scars
and we hardly wish to be in somebody else's figure.
But then, jumping into reality, how big are those negative thoughts,
comparing them with the reality?
Our body is marvellous, it's real, tangible and it represents our life.
It deserves to be supported by kindness...''>
- Part 1
She is a fantastic human being and through her talent,
I can now see those negative thoughts are just crumbs.
She has been able to understand what I was looking for and , with fun,
silliness and lots of caring she took the pictures I have been waiting for a long, long time. Thank you Marieke, for this emotional project.
For the first time, I really appreciate my image in every shot!''
