"We are all born so beautiful; the greatest tragedy
is being convinced we are not."
- Rupi Kaur
Hello, I'm Alice Mae.
I believe that every woman has her unique story, and that her story is worth telling. Our experiences live in our hearts and minds, and manifest in our songs, journals, conversations, quirks and habits. Our experiences are also written on our bodies, on our skin, in the way we carry ourselves, in the expressions we show in our eyes. I created Maebird Boudoir (Sacramento, California) to empower women by providing an outlet for telling their stories of heart, mind, & body. This is the power of visual story-telling through intimate feminine portraiture. Through portraiture, Maebird Boudoir's mission is to encourage and inspire women break the shackles that they're bound to by conventional, unrealistic beauty standards, and to embrace self-acceptance and self-love.
Maebird Boudoir hosts a badass active, private, women-only Facebook community dedicated to celebrating women of all walks of life. This is a place to complement every woman's journey to self-love. This is also a place to rain love on boudoir portraiture of Maebird clients, and to get first dibs on exclusive promotional offers. Join us on our mission in promoting women empowerment- click here!

With her kind and gentle nature, she easily guides her subjects into the perfect poses that capture their natural beauty. Her appreciation and attention for detail is bar none! She is well organized, timely in her return on her product, super easy to communicate with, friendly, and very professional in her work! Thank you for making me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and making me feel more beautiful than I ever have before."

"My experience with Maebird Boudoir was above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I have never modeled before (especially in lingerie!) so I was not really sure what to expect and how the session would go, but I was really excited to give it a try.
The entire experience was so comfortable and easygoing. Alice is such a kind and wonderful person that really cares about how you’re feeling and making sure you are comfortable as soon as she greets you. Walking into the studio felt like an absolute dream, the colors are so warm, elegant and vibrant. It’s hard to describe how beautiful the studio is, but you can tell a lot of hard work was put in to create such an aesthetic atmosphere (she also has a full client closet filled with TONS of size inclusive pieces that would look great on anyone). Alice has such a tasteful eye for creating the most gorgeous and tasteful poses that make you feel beautiful inside and out. I know very little about posing for any pictures (“what do I do with my hands?!”) but Alice is so professional and guides your positions with examples and ideas. She truly is such a lovely person to work with and we had an absolute blast together.
I was absolutely blown away by the results of our shoot. “Wait, that’s really ME in those pictures?!!” I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life and I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life. This experience made me fall in love with my body all over again and that’s definitely something to celebrate.
I highly recommend taking the leap with booking your session at Maebird and doing this for yourself, I guarantee you won’t regret it."

"I worked with Alice for a spontaneous shoot, and boy am I happy I said yes! In a word, her work is stunning. I came in with zero modeling experience (especially anything boudoir), nonetheless Alice made me feel instantly comfortable and gave concise, easy instruction. She really helped me feel empowered! I was floored by the photos she produced (and am sure my husband will agree when I share them for our anniversary). This girl uses light and shadow masterfully, and definitely knows her way around a camera. She is such a kind, warm, amazing talent, and anyone that is even considering doing a boudoir shoot should do so with Maebird - you won’t regret it!”
