STUDIO MANAGER

Beautiful You Studios, LLC, is a for women, by women boudoir studio founded in 2011 by Candace Perry. Growing up, she was bullied for her freckles, buck teeth, glasses, frizzy hair, & skinny legs and didn't feel beautiful until after she had a makeover in her late 20s. Wanting to help other women have this same life-changing experience, she created Beautiful You Studios. Candace has been published internationally both in front of the camera as a model, & behind it as a photographer. To date, she's been published in over 20 magazines & has won awards in many photography contests including Shoot & Share where she was voted into the Top 10% of photographers worldwide by 6 million voters.

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 is an awesome person, a phenomenal photographer, & she'll help you every step of the way! Thank you again Candace, you have made an extraordinary impact in my life & I'm forever thankful!

SONIA

It has almost been a year since my 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...and in her women's-only Facebook group, I've found friendship!

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. The studio is very clean & beautiful. She adds news things all of the time! Her hair & makeup artist made me feel like a straight up Victoria's Secret bombshell! I also loved the jewelry collections she had included for no extra cost! I couldn't be happier & I’ve told all of my girlfriends!

3/12

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!!

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!

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!

6/12

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 session. Take some time out for yourself and feel beautiful with Candace!

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!

8/12

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!!

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

10/12

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!

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

I understand your nervousness! When I was a model, photographers just told me, "Go stand over there," & that was it. I felt really awkward & there would usually only be 2-3 out of 100+ photos taken that I liked. This is NOT how I work. I direct you all the way down to your fingertips. I'll also show you the back of my camera as we go along. This is how my 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?

While it's common to do a shoot for a significant other, that doesn't have to be YOUR reason. 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 I'll email you my 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 my clients discounts. If you need advice, you'll have my personal cell phone at your disposal to text photos of items you're considering.

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

asked

questions

My goal is to help you feel beautiful in your own skin so I mostly rely on strategic poses to play down "problem" areas. That being said, everyone wants to feel like they stepped out of a magazine & delivering a polished image is part of that feeling. So yes, I do minor retouching in Photoshop. I will polish your natural beauty in the most natural way possible so that you still look like you. However, it's against my 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, I'm not the photographer 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?

My goal is to photograph every woman in a way that celebrates her God-given femininity. I believe that implied nudity can be done in a tasteful, artistic way, I just don't post anything beyond what you'd see at the beach anywhere online. That being said, if you're looking for really provocative poses or you're looking to showcase all your bits & pieces, that's out of my comfort zone.

Q: DO YOU OFFER SHOOTS OUTSIDE OF DALLAS?

YES! I LOVE to travel & usually plan a trip outside of Dallas every year to photograph new clients. Current goals include Greece, Italy, & Ireland. I'm also willing to come to you anywhere in the US at no additional cost if you + at least 2 friends book. Or, I'll go anywhere in the world for just you if you cover my travel expenses. Contact me 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. I would of course LOVE to share yours to show other women how empowering boudoir photography can be, but I understand your need for privacy. 

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

I'm hoping you'll book my team & I for the full experience. However, I understand that you might have reasons for doing your own hair & makeup. Just let me know you won't be using my artist & I'll be sure not to schedule her.

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