empowering

boudoir photography

for women, by women IN dallas

Hello there, beautiful you! Yes you. You're beautiful! Maybe you've always known that, or maybe somewhere along the way you looked in the mirror & forgot. But you are beautiful. Believe it or not, 99.9% of the women you see on our website have felt the same way. None of them are professional models. Many of them had never done a professional photo shoot before & walked into our studio so nervous they were trembling. Each one, however, felt so comfortable in our down-to-earth atmosphere that she walked out with her head held high, realizing she's beautiful. We want you - curvy or thin, tall or short - to see that, too. We offer some things that other studios do - professional hair & makeup artistry, luxury photo products. What we do that many don't, is offer a wide variety of locations to choose from, behind the scenes videos so you can remember every moment of the day, & pose coaching that comes from a unique perspective - our photographer used to model professionally & teach modeling classes. She's also been published in over 20 fashion magazines and was ranked one of the top photographers in America, before she decided it was more fulfilling to provide empowering portraiture to everyday women. As a boutique studio, we take on a limited number of clients per year in order to provide the best possible experience to each & every woman that walks through our door, so don't delay on booking the experience of a lifetime for yourself today. You deserve it!

about me

Hey there! My name is Candace Perry & I'm the photographer behind Beautiful You Studios! Since I was a little girl, I’ve loved pouring over fashion magazines & have always had the desire to create them. I took writing & graphic design courses in college & then pursued ad design. Eventually, I picked up a camera, fell into boudoir photography, and the rest was history! I know first-hand what a professional photo shoot can do for someone, having grown up being bullied for being a nerd & not feeling beautiful until after I had a shoot in my late 20s. I believe that EVERY woman should feel beautiful at least once in her life, so I created Beautiful You Studios. Helping women feel beautiful through boudoir photography is what I believe God put me on this earth to do, and I’d absolutely LOVE to have the honor of photographing beautiful YOU!!

lover of Jesus, mini schnauzers, art, wildflowers, sunsets, CUPCAKES, & dorky stufF...like sci-fi movies.

THE STUDIO

We rent Studio Bellas in downtown Dallas, Texas, by the hour for our boudoir sessions. The studio has beautiful natural light and several different sets to shoot on. You will be the only client in the studio during your session. For clients who prefer a more unique experience, we can substitute the studio for a hotel or AirBnb room. This allows each woman photographed by us to have a custom background in her boudoir photos

The album arrived & it is beautiful. I am 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 super model which was super sweet. Thank you, girl!! -VICKI, BOUDOIR CLIENT

he said I look like

a super model

Every time I watch the video I still cry. I will never forget as long as a I live how I felt that day and how exhilarating it was. It was a very eye opening experience for me and it showed me that I AM BEAUTIFUL! Since that photo shoot I have continued to love myself for who I am and I have not allowed anyone the privilege of making me doubt my self worth! In two years I have continued to focus on me and my health and I have lost a total of 86 pounds. To any women out there who think they can’t do this because they are not thin enough or have no idea how to pose, I am here to tell you to go for it. Candace is an awesome person and a phenomenal photographer and she will help you every step of the way! Thank you again Candace, you have made a extraordinary impact in my life and I am forever thankful!

it's been 2 years

and i still cry EVERYTIME

I had been looking for a boudoir photographer for a month when I came across Candace’s work, & knew I had to have her! I was nervous as I had never done anything like this before, but within minutes I felt so comfortable. I brought 10 outfits, a bunch of jewelry, & a zillion shoes still not knowing what I wanted to wear. Fortunately, while I was getting my hair & makeup done (in the exact dreamy, steamy bedroom look I had wanted), Candace rocked out 4 amazing outfits for me. 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 to the team for making this such a wonderful experience!  ~ JENNIFER, BOUDOIR CLIENT

I WANTED & he loved his gift

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 the pictures.

                   ~ DONNA, BOUDOIR CLIENT

a wonderful
 & liberating

experience

Had such a great boudoir photography experience with Candace! I was in search of someone to take photographs for my husband who is currently deployed and I am so pleased at the way they turned out. I was nervous as I am sure most first time boudoir clients are, however she made me feel at ease and put care into her work. Totally recommend her as a photographer!

FAQ

Q

CAN I CHOOSE THE LOCATION?

YES. Unlike most studios, we allow our clients to fully customize their experience. You can choose to shoot at a hotel or AirBNB instead of our studio at no additional cost, so long as it costs no more than $150 total. If it's more than that, you'll be responsible for the difference. We LOVE to travel & will go anywhere in the world! Locations outside of a 20 mile radius from downtown Dallas will incur a travel fee. Contact us for more details.

Q

DO YOU USE PHOTOSHOP?

YES. During your viewing, you'll see around 60-100 proofs. After you select the images you want to purchase, they will receive retouching. This includes blemish, stretch mark, under eye circle, & wrinkle removal, as well as light body re-shaping. However, we don't do extreme retouching as we believe in just making each clients' photos a polished representation of how they look in real life.

Q

will there be anyone else in the studio during my shoot?

NO. I want you to be completely comfortable, so it will be just us during your session. However, if you decide you want some video of your session, my female assistant will be on set too. You can also bring along one female friend for moral support, so long as they don't try to direct the shoot - we can't have too many cooks in the kitchen! :)

Q

DO MY PICTURES HAVE TO BE ON YOUR WEBSITE?

NO. The only time images are shared anywhere (print, website, social media, etc.) is when our clients give us written permission to share them. In fact, we take it a step further & double-check which images our clients are ok with being shared. Some let us share everything, others ask us to keep all except a couple private. But if you don't want us to share anything at all, all you have to do is let us know in writing when you book your shoot.

Q

DO I NEED TO BRING OUTFITS?

YES. When you book a session with us, you'll receive our detailed style guide containing ideas for all body shapes & sizes. We will also recommend low-cost places to shop at and you can text us photos of pieces you're considering if you need help choosing.

Q

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET EVERYTHING?

1-2 weeks after your session, you'll view your proofs. After you place your order, your images will go through retouching & will be delivered 2-3 weeks later. Keep this in mind when selecting your shoot date as rush orders are only available at additional cost.

Q

HOW MUCH IS ALL THIS?

The non-refundable retainer fee is $350 which does include photos. Digital images start at $100 each. Deep savings are gained when you purchase one of our product collections. We also offer interest-free payment plans subject to credit approval. For more specific pricing information, please contact us.

Q

HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?

Fill out our contact form & we'll send you our Studio Magazine which contains detailed pricing info. You'll also receive a link to our online booking portal which allows you to choose the date & time that best fits your schedule, read & sign our contract, & pay the $350 non-refundable session retainer fee. Once all of this is complete, we'll contact you to set up your Skype planning meeting so we can begin planning your dream shoot!
