Beautiful You Studios is a boudoir photography studio located in Dallas, Texas, founded in 2011 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.
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 20 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.
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 women how to pose.
4) Our fully-pampered experiences include spa certificates & even vacations. Contact us to learn more.
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, but just incase it's not, your size, shape, & color doesn't matter at our studio, 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 come to our studio. If you're outside this range, you'll bring your own lingerie. As far as age goes, you must be at least 21 years old but there is no limit, we've had 65+ year old grandmas & we LOVE IT!!
Q: WHAT sizes & ages do you work with?
This is a half-day experience. Plan for around 3-5 hours for your complete boudoir experience. Each session begins with 1-1.5 hours for hair & makeup, then we finalize wardrobe. The session itself then takes 1.5 hours for 3 outfits & if you purchase a qualifying package with a Bonus Set option, an additional 30-60 minutes is added to the session depending on the complexity of the set. It's recommended that you allow at least 2 hours of wiggle room if possible just incase the session runs over.
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 any rolls or cellulite that appear in the photos 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 non-refundable administrative fee to hold your shoot date, you'll pre-pay for the boudoir collection of your dreams within 2 weeks, OR you'll open an auto-drafing pre-payment plan which will be paid off 30 days prior to your session. We promise that you will NOT be the first to not love your photos from us. Most of our clients who say they never liked photos others took of them actually have trouble narrowing down their images from us due to our extensive pose coaching. Need more proof that you'll LOVE your photos? Check out our video reviews!
Q: CAN I PURCHASE JUST 1 OR 2 IMAGES?
We offer a full-service luxury experience. It's not possible to only love a couple images after a half-day luxury portrait experience, therefore we don't sell images individually. Most of our clients walk away with a full collection containing digital images, an album, & wall art. If budget is a concern, we offer payment plans, or you may choose to purchase digital images a la carte in packs of 20 or more. Contact us for more details.
Q: WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU TAKE?
We accept all major credit cards & PayPal Credit. OR, if you need a little more time, we offer a monthly auto-drafting pre-payment plan option that's interest-free, does NOT require a credit check, & will be paid off 30 days prior to your session.
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 within an additional 2 weeks. Print products will be drop-shipped directly to your home within an additional 2-6 weeks depending on the products ordered. Total turnaround time for all orders ranges from 4-8 weeks depending on the products ordered. If you need your photos back sooner, we offer rush orders for an additional fee.
Q: WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?
Our 2300 sq ft 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 POLICIES?
All surfaces in the studio are regularly disinfected & all staff has 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. 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.
I still cry every time I watch the video from my boudoir shoot. I will never forget how I felt that day and how exhilarating it was. It showed me that I AM BEAUTIFUL! Since the boudoir 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!
This was my second boudoir shoot with Candace. It was so so so empowering, I love this whole process, it’s worth the money for sure. It has been incredibly empowering for me to come from an abusive marriage & a lifetime of feeling less than & criticized for my physical appearance, to a place where I’m feeling confident.
This boudoir shoot was by far the coolest thing I’ve ever done for myself. Candace is the kindest & coolest person to work with. I felt comfortable & confident in my skin. I listened to her & trusted everything she said to make sure my boudoir pictures turned out great. From the beginning to the end, it was a phenomenal journey & I just want to thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. Anybody, no matter what size you are, I encourage you to do it. I will never forget this as long as I live!
"mY second shoot with CandacE WAS so empowering."
"by far the coolest thing I ever did for myself."
"2 years later, I still cry every time I watch this video."
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 subtle changes that made a huge difference. I was just in absolute heaven once I got my boudoir album in. If you’re on the fence, just do it. Candace created a beautiful space, & she has an amazing sense of humor. It’s worth every penny.
When I had my boudoir shoot, I was blown away. Candace made me feel so at ease and more like catching up with an old friend. We laughed and talked through the entire boudoir session and you can see in my boudoir photos that she melted away all my doubts and nerves. I am so happy she helped me achieve such gorgeous boudoir photos that I can be proud of for the rest of my life. If you're on the fence, just book. You deserve to see you how others see you, and Candace can show you through her lens.
My boudoir shoot experience with Beautiful You Studios is difficult to put into words! I have always struggled with my self-confidence & was afraid that my anxiety would ruin it, but Candace and her group were absolutely amazing. They made me feel absolutely amazing and beautiful, I felt like a million dollars & was on Cloud 9 by the time I left. I would absolutely do it again!! Candace, you will never know how this experience changed my life and I will always be grateful to you! ❤

"what impresses me is her attention to detail."
I’m 51 and this boudoir session was a birthday gift to myself. One day I'll 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 boudoir pictures she takes are very classy. Thank you so much Candace, I love every boudoir photo.
It’s so empowering to see yourself in this light. This is the heaviest I’ve been, the most out of shape I’ve been, & of course, the oldest I’ve ever been, yet I was able to do a boudoir shoot that portrayed me in a light I’ve never seen myself in. Cellulite, flabby arms, none of it matters...this made my day. Ya’ll, if you don’t feel like anyone in your life sees you as beautiful including yourself, invest in a boudoir shoot. It’s so worth it. Thank you so much Candace, you’re amazing!
Candace was very hands on leading up to the boudoir 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 boudoir pictures. It was wonderful seeing myself through someone else's eyes. I will definitely be going to her again in the future!
"it's so empowering to see yourself in this light."
"it was wonderful seeing myself this way."
"she makes you feel extremely comfortable."
Candace is amazing. I had trouble narrowing my boudoir photos 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.
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 boudoir photos to see the essence of ME rising up & staring back at me. I never knew boudoir 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!!
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!
"stepping into my fierce femininity after setbacks has been the best thing."
"Candace made me feel like a movie star."
"I had trouble narrowing my images down, I wanted everything."
Candace is a truly talented boudoir 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!
"Candace is truly talented...a magnificent experience."
