Boudoir Photography San Diego

Hey there, I’m Melisa, the award-winning boudoir photographer behind this website. I am located in North County San Diego and service all of Southern California.

What inspires me most is the beauty in EVERY woman. I started out shooting fine art nude maternity portraits, and it’s where I first fell in love with showing each one of my clients just how BEAUTIFUL she is.

No matter what you are going through in life, feeling beautiful is so important! So whether you are about to embark on the next journey of your life by getting married, you are a new mom, you are a new grandma, you just overcame great difficulty, or you just want to feel beautiful again…a boudoir session is much more than beautiful images, it’s a life-changing experience.

I am a mommy to twin boys and a singleton boy, and I treasure every moment of it. But, I also appreciate that my body will never look the same again, and that’s ok. Instead of shaming our bodies, we should be celebrating!

Your experience starts with a consultation (either online, over the phone, or in person) and I lead you through the entire process. You can choose from a session at your place, my home studio, outdoors, or a hotel. Each session is unique and customized to you. The session fee of $300 includes professional hair & makeup.


I did a boudoir session a few months after having a baby and I was SUPER nervous at first. The atmosphere from the beginning was comfortable, we talked, joked and laughed, when stripped down to the bare minimum what else can you do!? Melisa was super professional and made everything extremely relaxed. I ended up having a blast. It will forever be one of my most favorite photoshoots ever. I absolutely 100% recommend Melisa.”  —Holly
