Hi, I’m Noel Nichols. I recently moved to Atlanta from the Gulf Coast of Florida. I’ve been a professional photographer for seven years, and for the last five of those, I’ve been specializing in boudoir photography. Boudoir is my favorite genre of photography because I love getting to help show you how amazing you are. The reaction when people first see their photos is my absolute favorite part of the process!
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
You can find me on instagram on my boudoir account @atlantaboudoir or my general account @noel_nichols
Boudoir photography (pronounced boo-dwah or boo-dwar) is intimate photography celebrating your unique beauty and personality.
Your session can be as revealing or as modest as you want, from portraits to tasteful nudes.
Do you really need a reason to have gorgeous photos of yourself?
Well if you do need a reason, here are some awesome ones:
Celebration of reaching a fitness goal
Wedding gift for your future spouse
Birthday present (for yourself, or for someone else!)
Just because! You are beautiful and deserve to have photos that show it!
You should wear something that makes you feel sexy and confident. Most women bring several lingerie outfits, a "girls night out" outfit, a few pairs of high heels, stockings and jewelry, but if that's not your style, I will help you pick out the perfect outfit. You can check out my Pinterest board for more ideas! I am always available to my clients that would like extra guidance on outfits. I also have many items in various styles and sizes that you are welcome to wear for your session.
Boudoir sessions include professional hair styling and makeup application in the style of your choice, wardrobe styling and access to my client closet, and 2-hour photo session with complete pose coaching by me. Boudoir sessions start at $350, but you can contact me to find out more about the pricing.
Professional hair styling and makeup are included with your boudoir session. A local professional makeup and hair artist will be on-site at the session to give you a glamorous makeover. Other services that you might consider are hair cuts or color touch-ups, and a mani/pedi.
Outfits, high heels, jewelry, accessories, any personal or special props (i.e. if you or your significant other loves to play guitar, bring it to pose with).
Yes! You are welcome to bring a guest. I recommend leaving your S.O. at home, though!
Yes! I am a 29-year-old female photographer, and only use female assistants and stylists for boudoir sessions.
You won't know for sure until you meet me; I provide free consultations, where we can meet and talk about what you want out of your session. If you decide not to hire me for your session, I can always help you find another local photographer.
You don't have to look like a runway model to do a boudoir shoot. Boudoir photography is for any woman, no matter your shape, size or age. The photos are about you and celebrating your individual beauty.
Skin-smoothing and blemish-removal are standard with every shoot (unless otherwise requested!), but more retouching can be done by request, and at an additional cost. You should still look like yourself when I am finished!
Your digital photos are posted in a private, password-protected gallery for your convenience, but they are NEVER shared with others unless you give your permission. All photos on my website and social media are from shoots where the client gave me permission for posting them.
I hope that you love your photos, but if you don't, I have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. I can re-shoot your session, within one month of your original session, with no additional session fee.
I will show you some amazingly flattering poses that you can do! I will guide you through the posing throughout your session, and make sure you look your absolute best.
Depending on which package you order and the amount of requested retouching, it can take between 3-4 weeks for your prints to arrive. Rush orders are available for an additional fee.
Alcohol is a liability that I cannot and will not be responsible for. It is in my contract that clients must not have had alcohol in the 12 hours previous to their photo session. This will protect you from making any decisions during your shoot that you are unhappy with later. I will not photograph you if you are intoxicated or under the influence of drugs.
Let's talk about the free consultation; I won't pressure you into buying something you don't want, or make you feel uncomfortable with any decision. The consultation should help you make the decisions that will make your session unique to you, and settle any concerns you might have going into it. We will go over every step of the process during the consultation, so there are no surprises when you come back for your session.
The consultation is to help you figure out a couple of things:
What kind of session do you want?
The type of session that we do is completely up to you. You can show as little or as much skin as you want--it's all about getting real, beautiful photos of you. Do you want something fashion-inspired? Or maybe vintage? Glamorous? Sexy? Casual? Creative? Whatever it is that you want, we will make a plan for it during your consultation.
What do you want out of your session?
We can talk about what you're hoping to come away with after your session. The free consultation is a great time to ask questions and customize your boudoir session. If you have any concerns or anxieties about something, this is when we talk about it and find a solution.
Whether you want to do your session in a few weeks or months, you can schedule your consultation via the contact form, or by calling me at 850.356.4833. If I don't answer right away, I'll be sure get back to you within 8 hours.
