Beautiful You Studios is a boudoir photography studio located in Dallas, Texas, founded in 2010 by Candace Perry after realizing how empowering a makeover shoot could be.
Growing up bullied, she didn't feel beautiful until after having a makeover shoot in her late 20s. Since that time, she's been in front of the camera countless times as a professional model & actress. This unique background enables her to coach clients not only on how to pose, but also on how to get a variety of facial expressions.
As a photographer, her work has been published internationally & she was voted into the Top 10% of boudoir photographers worldwide by 78 million voters during Shoot & Share's photography contest in 2019 & in 2022, she won the Association of International Boudoir Photographer's contest.
Today, Candace is passionate about helping people feel beautiful & her down-to-earth personality helps even the most camera-shy folks light up in front of the camera. She takes pride in the moments she gets to watch her clients realize how beautiful they are & would absolutely LOVE to photograph beautiful YOU!!

1) Our studio is insanely luxurious & has over 14 sets to choose from - not just a bed.
2) We have a lingerie closet for women offering brand-new lingerie in sizes S-2X that you get to take home after your session for FREE.
3) Candace is ranked in the Top 10% of boudoir photographers & her work has appeared in magazines worldwide. She's also a former model. This enables her to show everyday folks how to pose.
q: WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOUR STUDIO?
Q: DO MY PICTURES HAVE TO GO ONLINE?
No! Your images will never be online unless you give us permission to share them. You can simply ask to opt out of the model release portion of our contract to keep them private.
We understand your nervousness! However, Candace used to model professionally & will demonstrate exactly what to do, all the way down to your fingertips & facial expressions. 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 will be narrowing them down! :)
Q: WHAT IF I DON'T know HOW TO POSE; WILL MY PICTURES TURN OUT OK?
We hope it's pretty clear from our portfolio that we believe in diversity; EVERYONE deserves to feel beautiful! That being said, our Lingerie Closet features items for women in sizes S-2X as these are the most common sizes that book a session at our studio. If you're outside this range, you'll need to bring your own items. As far as age goes, you must be at least 21 years old but there is no limit!!
Q: WHAT sizes & ages do you work with?
It depends on the package you purchase. Each session begins with 1 hour for hair & makeup for the women & then we finalize wardrobe. The session itself then takes an additional 1-2 hours depending on the package purchased. It's recommended that you add on at least 1 hour of wiggle room incase the session runs over. In total, you'll spend at minimum 2 hours up to 4 hours at our studio.
Q: HOW LONG DOES A SESSION LAST?
Yes! While we rely on strategic poses to play down areas you may not be in love with, after you select the images you wish to purchase at your Photo Reveal, our retoucher then softens flaws in the most light & natural-looking way possible. Our goal is to help you feel beautiful in your own skin so we don't believe in complete removal of flaws, just a softening of them.
Q: DO YOU BELIEVE IN PHOTOSHOP?
Q: HOW SOON WILL i see my images?
We used to offer same-day order appointments, but found that most were too tired to stay at the studio an entire day. Instead, 1-2 weeks after your session we'll meet on Zoom to show you all of your beautiful images.
Q: WHEN IS PAYMENT DUE?
After you pay the session retainer, you'll pay for the digital image and/or print collection of your dreams within 48 hours with any major credit card or PayPal Credit to receive a 10% discount, OR you'll open an auto-drafting payment plan that will be paid off 30 days prior to your session.
Q: WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU TAKE?
We accept all major credit cards & PayPal Credit.
Q: HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY PHOTOS BACK?
After the Photo Reveal, images will receive retouching. Digital images will then be available to download from an online gallery & print products will be shipped directly to your home within an additional 3-4 weeks. Total turnaround time for all orders ranges from 4-6 weeks. If you need your photos back sooner, we offer rush orders for an additional fee.
Q: WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?
Our studio is located just south of Downtown Dallas, Texas, inside Southside on Lamar which is just across the street from the Dallas Police Headquarters. Ample free parking is available in a retail parking lot located behind the building. Also in the area is Gilley's Dallas and the Alamo Drafthouse if you want to meet a friend to see a show or movie after your session.
Q: I'M NOT LOCAL, WHERE SHOULD I STAY?
Our studio is conveniently located in Downtown Dallas directly next door to the Canvas Hotel which offers luxury accommodations along with a beautiful lounge, amazing restaurant, & rooftop bar. You can Uber around, or we're within walking distance of the DART. The nearest airport is Dallas Love Field & the main airport, DFW International, is just a quick 30 minute drive away depending on traffic. Dallas is notorious for bad traffic so always allow extra time for travel.
Q: DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH COUPLES?
Yes! We offer boudoir for couples on a limited basis if it falls within certain parameters. Couples must do a Zoom call with Candace before booking & we only do lifestyle couples' boudoir, we don't do erotica. You can see samples of lifestyle couples' boudoir we're willing to do here.
Q: WHAT ARE YOUR COVID-19 POLICIES?
All staff have been fully vaccinated. Some choose to wear masks during the sessions, others do not. If you prefer that all staff wear a mask during your session, just let us know ahead of time so that we can remember to bring our mask. You of course will not be masked, so we ask that you reschedule your session if you've been exposed to COVID within 2 weeks of your session or are experiencing any flu-like symptoms.
