Moody and Sensual Boudoir Photo Shoot on Film
By Jada Parrish
Oh film! I have been shooting film since I have 15. I majored in photography in college and all the work I produced was exclusively in film. Once we started taking photos professionally though, I switched to digital.  I love the consistency of digital and the ability to quickly adjust to new situations - and the fact ...

Remember our boudoir contest we held a few months ago? Well it's time to meet the winner! This is Courtney. She's a kick-ass fitness instructor and total boss babe in the communications world.

Time Lapse of a J&D Boudoir Shoot
By David Parrish
You may have heard Jada talk about this before, but we absolutely love our new studio. In years past, we spent our time in older spaces that were very "Richmond". They were full of exposed bricks and wooden beams. While that was a cool look, it wasn't a perfect fit for our style. We are now in a brand new space, t...

Relaxed Studio Boudoir Shoot
By Jada Parrish
Ok - be honest. Do you ever wear lingerie? If you're like most women, you have some tucked away in your closest that you may pull out for special occasions, but it's definitely not an everyday staple of your wardrobe. And while yes, lacey lingerie can be super sexy and looks great in photos, it is not something many women f...
Playful Studio Boudoir Shoot with Holly Marlin
By Jada Parrish
Here's a boudoir shoot that is equally as playful as it is sexy! I am a huge proponent that you DO NOT need to wear lingerie to your boudoir shoot. Every day clothes like shorts, tank tops, kimonos, and body suits can bring the heat in a big way! I love how the pastel shades and neutral tones of Holly's outfit photogr...
