To date, Candace has been published internationally both in front of the camera as a model, & behind it as a photographer in over 20 magazines.

LISA

I still cry every time I watch the video from my shoot. I will never forget how I felt that day and how exhilarating it was. It showed me that I AM BEAUTIFUL! Since the shoot, I've continued to love myself for who I am. I've focused on my health & in 2 years I've lost a total of 86 pounds. To any women out there who think they can’t do this because they're not thin enough or have no idea how to pose, I'm here to tell you to go for it. Candace will help you every step of the way!

Stephanie

What really impresses me with Candace is her attention to detail: She captured my undertones which is important to me as a dark-skinned woman, she showed me how to pose all the way down to my facial expressions & she had me make settle changes that made a huge difference. I was just in absolute heaven once I got my boudoir album in. It’s one thing to do the shoot, quite another to see it in print - I’m actually in awe. If you’re on the fence, just do it. Candace created a beautiful space, there’s so much light & so many different props, & she has an amazing sense of humor. GO FOR IT. It’s worth every penny.

Stepping into my fierce femininity after several setbacks in life has been the best thing I could have done for myself. I love having these photos to see the essence of ME rising up & staring back at me. I never knew photography could speak so loudly, but I am in LOVE!! It's truly an art & an incredible outlet of expression. Looking forward to doing it again. I'm so glad I just took the plunge and said YES. Thank you for helping me see ME again!! 

Tiffany

It’s so empowering to see yourself in this light. This is the heaviest I’ve been, this is the most out of shape I’ve been, & of course it’s the oldest I’ve ever been, yet I was able to do a boudoir photoshoot that portrayed me in a light that I’ve never ever ever seen myself in. Cellulite, flabby arms, none of it matters...this made my day. Ya’ll, if you don’t feel like you have anyone in your life that sees you as beautiful including yourself, invest in a boudoir shoot. It’s so worth it. Thank you so much Candace, you’re amazing. 

ROSANNE

I’m 51 and this boudoir session was a birthday gift to myself. I’m not going to be 51 forever & not always going to look the way I do now, so I chose to do this experience to at least one day be able to look back & have a memory from when I was young. This was a very empowering experience & I think all women should try it at least once in their lives. I can’t even tell you how great you feel & it’s not as hard as you’d think. She walks you through it all & makes you feel extremely comfortable, & all of the pictures she takes are very classy. Thank you so much Candace, I love every picture. 

RAMONA

Candace is amazing. I had trouble narrowing my images down, I wanted everything. If you haven’t made an appointment with her, you need to do it, because this boudoir shoot is probably my most favorite thing in the whole world that I’ve ever done. I’m not a very adventurous person, I tend to stay nice & quiet at home, but she made the whole experience very comfortable throughout the entire thing. I love my boudoir album, I’m so glad I did it. 

chris

I’m a work from home mom of 2 boys so my opportunities to feel beautiful are few & far between. My uniform everyday is a t-shirt and yoga pants. Candace worked her magic and made me feel like a movie star! I loved all of the well thought out props she thought of for my boudoir session. Take some time out for yourself and feel beautiful with Candace!

TARABETH

LONDON

Candace was very hands on leading up to the shoot, addressing any concerns I had, taking the time to help me with the wardrobe. I was nervous going into it as it's completely out of my comfort zone, but those feelings went away once I met Candace. She's very welcoming & made me feel beautiful. I fell in love with all the pictures. It was wonderful seeing myself through someone else's eyes. I will definitely be going to her again in the future!

VANESA

Candace is a truly talented photographer and I can't wait to work with her again. She has an amazing eye, is unbelievably professional, and starts on time! This was a magnificent experience!

TRACY

Candace did such a great job helping me settle my nerves. This was the first time I've tried something like this and her calm and chill attitude did a world to help. She had just moved to a new studio and the natural light, the floors, and photo ops abound. This experience helped my self-confidence and will continue to in the wall art & boudoir album I chose. I won't be hanging it in my closet or bathroom, but out where everyone can see. Candace is very talented, made me feel pretty, and was able to capture some images that made me feel so as well. Thanks Beautiful You Studios. I will be back!

ALEXIS

Candace was absolutely amazing to work with. She made the environment comfortable and made sure we were both having fun! Honestly, it was the best boudoir experience I’ve ever had & I’ve done 2 other boudoir shoots before. I definitely recommend her to anyone who is on the fence!

SONIA

It has almost been a year since my boudoir shoot with Candace and I still look through my album when I feel down or not so sure about myself for that boost of confidence. I quickly remember what a fun and empowering day it was and get that recharge of fierceness that I need! This is so much more than just pictures - it’s confidence/self reassurance!

CHRISTINE

There are COUNTLESS boudoir photographers in Dallas, but I’m SO glad I found Candace. She’s very flexible, fun, & easy to work with. I’m not a model at all; she helped me with posing & what to do with my facial expressions. It was obvious she wanted to make sure I ended with the desired photos. Her hair & makeup artist made me feel like a straight up Victoria's Secret bombshell! I couldn't be happier & I’ve told all of my girlfriends!

Candace does amazing work! If you ever plan to be in Dallas and dare to get out of your comfort zone....this was very empowering! She makes you feel very comfortable and draws you out so that you can have the best experience and have fun as well. You won’t be disappointed!

EMILIA

The boudoir album arrived & it's beautiful. I'm so impressed with the quality of it. Your ability to capture me in natural light & pose me just right is AMAZING! I gave it to him & he LOVED it!! I'm quite sure he looked through it no less than 6 times. He went over every page and talked about each image. He said you made me look like a supermodel which was super sweet. Thank you, girl!!

VICKI

What a dream come true from start to finish! Candace has a true gift at making you feel comfortable & beautiful! All her emails prior to the shoot left no questions unanswered. I had a perfect idea from the communication what to expect. Her hair & makeup artist made me look amazing. She gave me the exact look I was hoping for. The whole process is like something you see in the movies!

MELISSA

I was nervous as I had never done anything like this before, but within minutes I felt so comfortable. This shoot meant a lot to me as it was a Valentine’s Day gift for my husband who is currently in Afghanistan, & it was perfect. I looked and felt like a queen, I enjoyed every minute of my shoot, and my photos came out amazing. Most importantly, my husband loved his gift. A big thank you for making this such a wonderful experience!

JENNIFER

Thank you again! It was a wonderful & liberating experience. You made things very comfortable & easy for this mama of two grown boys despite my self-criticizing nature. I couldn't be happier with my boudoir pictures.

Q

We understand your nervousness! When Candace was a model, photographers just told her, "Go stand over there" & that was it. She felt really awkward & there would rarely be any photos that she liked. This is NOT how we work. Candace directs you all the way down to your fingertips. She'll also show you the back of her camera as you go along. This is how our clients with 0 experience manage to get hundreds of photos that they like - your largest problem is going to be narrowing them down. :)

Q: I've never done something like this before & have no idea how to pose...will my pictures turn out ok?

Boudoir photography is about connecting with your own beauty. It's like a therapy session & confidence boost in one. The best part is that you can look back at the photos again & again for years to come & be reminded of just how beautiful you are! :)

q: i don't have anyone special to give the pictures to. Is it REALLY WORTH IT?

After you book, we'll email you our Lingerie Guide which includes advice on how to choose the best lingerie for your body type & info on Velvet Box, a lingerie store in the DFW area that offers our clients a 10% discount.

Q: i have no idea what to wear...HELP!

asked

questions

Our goal is to help you feel beautiful in your own skin so we mostly rely on strategic poses to play down "problem" areas. Our retoucher will polish your natural beauty in the most natural way possible so that you still look like you. However, it's against our morals to do drastic retouching such as complete wrinkle removal or slimming a size 12 down to a 2. If that's what you're looking for, we're not the studio for you. :)

Q: I HAVE ACNE, ROLLS, DARK CIRCLES UNDER MY EYES, WRINKLES, ETC. WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP ALL THAT?

Q: I DON'T SEE ANY NUDES ON YOUR WEBSITE...DO YOU SHOOT THEM?

Our goal is to photograph every woman in a way that celebrates her femininity. We believe that implied nudity can be done in a tasteful, artistic way. That being said, if you're looking for really provocative poses or you're looking to showcase all your bits & pieces, that's not something we do.

Q: DO YOU OFFER SHOOTS OUTSIDE OF DALLAS?

YES! Candace LOVES to travel & usually plans a trip outside of Dallas every year to photograph new clients. She's willing to come to you anywhere in the US at no additional cost if you + at least 2 friends book. Or, she'll go anywhere in the world for just you if you cover her travel expenses. Contact us for more details!

Q: I'M A REALLY PRIVATE PERSON. DO MY PICTURES HAVE TO GO ONLINE?

Nope! While everyone you see on this site gave us permission to share their boudoir pictures, you don't have to. We would of course LOVE to share yours to show other women how empowering boudoir photography can be, but we understand your need for privacy. 

Q: I WANT TO DO MY OWN HAIR & MAKEUP...IS THERE A DISCOUNT?

The session retainer includes complimentary hair & makeup, meaning that you aren't obligated to use our artist. If you choose to do your own, just let us know. However, there's no discounts for doing so.

a

Q: WHAT ARE THE AGE REQUIREMENTS TO DO A BOUDOIR SHOOT?

You must be at least 21 years old to do a shoot at our studio. After that, you can be up to 100, because we believe that ALL women are beautiful!!
