We run a huge, thriving boudoir studio while creating the most comprehensive boudoir biz program for fellow photographers….all the while throwing up the middle finger to the conventional ways.
We've seen so many photographers throw in the towel because they don't have a full customized solution to help them grow. So, we've created one.
a little bit sweet and A little bit salty
Moving our bodies, eating good food, listening to good music, meditating, yoga, and good skincare
Spending time with our kids & animals, on coaching cals with our delightful clients, photographing and empowering amazing women.
Playing small, Vanity metrics, feast & famine, saying "yes" to the shiz you hate, a one size fits all approach.
Straight talk, work-life balance, your business is as unique as you are, data, and cutting out the 'meh' to make room for the very best.
Do you want to know THE THING we wish we would have told our past selfs when we were just starting out?
Don't try to do it alone. Full stop.
You see, We pride ourselves on being badasses. We hate to ask for help...We just make shit work. We have always been that way.
So when it came to starting own separate boudoir businesses, we tried to do the same thing.
- We both piece-mealed it together. (bought a million guides)
- We rarely invested. (DIY'ed everything)
- We didn't set boundaries. (worked 24/7)
- We ran a million miles an hour. (burned out fast)
- We thought we could just hack it. (wasted time only to find out I was on a hamster wheel)
- We operated out of scarcity. (omg...we were always running sales)
We realized "solo" wasn't workin in our businesses.
We both had to get really honest with ourselves and admit that we needed help to truly learn how to run successful businesses.
Now we both can't imagine running our business without the support we hired.
That's why we created a full solution to helping other photographers create their dream boudoir photography business.
It is THE answer you are looking for whether you are trying to go full-time or a seasoned pro that has it a plateau.
We know because we have been there.
Our superpower is helping photographers become the best version of themselves while pursuing the kind of life they actually want.... one with abundant freedom, joy, and peace.
We are Ashley & Christie, co-owners of The Boudoir Academy.
We have been in the boudoir game for a hot minute. Over 20 years of combined experience to be exact.
So when we say we are obsessed with providing photographers with the exact tools to crush their dreams…we mean that shiz.
You Are a Badass
Justin Beiber or Crime Junkie on Spotify
Embrace your inner rebel.
We are artists, empaths, and let's be honest...we take pictures of nakey people for a living.
That my dah'ling is a gift.
So embrace what makes you different and know that is your very best quality.
