Sacramento & Bay Area Boudoir Photographer
Boudoir isn't just taking photos, looking ravishing, or purchasing a gift for your lovebird. Boudoir is an experience. It is an expression of your self-love and confidence, regardless of where you are in your empowerment journey. Maebird Boudoir's mission is to help you along in that journey. Here's how it goes~
The first step is to schedule a phone or Zoom consult session with Alice Mae. This consult, usually 20-40 minutes long, goes over the what you can expect from the boudoir experience, from beginning to end. This is where your connection with Maebird Boudoir first begins! To secure a session date with Maebird Boudoir, you'll pay your retainer and sign a contract which outlines exactly what you can expect from your boudoir experience.
Now the fun begins! You'll receive the Maebird Photoshoot Prep Guide to help you prepare for your upcoming photoshoot. This includes getting ideas for your wardrobe and other suggestions on how to be a shining star on your big day! Alice Mae will be available via email or phone correspondence to you to help you brainstorm for your session!
It's here! It's here! The long awaited photoshoot!
You'll arrive to the studio at 9am to have your professional hair and makeup done for ~90 min. This is a chance to lounge, relax, chat, and sip on some bubbly. You'll finalize your wardrobe with Alice Mae, and then it's go-time! Your session will run for 90 minutes, during which you'll receive full guidance for posing and lookin' radiant!
IV. Viewing Session
Once your photoshoot is complete, you'll take a 2 hour lunch break while Alice Mae does her magic and edits your best images! When break is over, you'll return to the Maebird Studio to start your Viewing Session. You'll finalize how you'd like your art to be displayed (eg, albums, metal prints, folio boxes, etc), after which your art will be promptly ordered. Your art will be shipped to Maebird Boudoir for a quality check.
Once your products arrive to Maebird Studio and pass the quality check, you will be invited to another appointment to view your *products, do another happy dance, and finally take home your masterpieces to indulge in and cherish, forever. <3
*A la carte prices start at $600, and Collections start at $2400.

"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!”
