It’s no secret that society prefers women to be placed under pretty little labels. We’re allowed to be: bosses, mothers, leaders, advocates, and visionaries. However, like America Ferrera so beautifully expressed in Barbie, never without asking… and NEVER at the same time. However, that’s not how we run things in our studio. 

At Venoma you are free to be whoever you want to be. Whether you’re shooting a maternity session or igniting the spark with your partner in front of the camera, it’s our job to create a safe and non judgemental environment that is an extension of your authentic expression. One that empowers you to unravel from the roles you play and rise in your multidimensionality. 

Just as the artful muse you are.

You Can Be Both Sultry & Safe In Who You Are

This is the closest you two will ever be. Let’s preserve you in this empowering chapter of motherhood.

I could go on and on about how amazing this experience is but if there’s one take away, it’s that Shelly is phenomenal. The quality you get when you book with her is priceless. She goes above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable and that you are more than happy with the photos you receive. I was so nervous and by the end, I didn’t want our session to be over. I am so glad I trusted her because I would have missed out on such a transformative experience otherwise."

"Shelly's professionalism is unmatched and most importantly she has such a gift for boudoir. Artistically they are beyond anything I could’ve imagined and her talent for this type of photography is astonishing.  

I appreciated how fun AND funny she was—and how creative too, of course! I was so anxious leading up to the shoot but the day of she made the entire experience so comfortable and memorable. She takes such care to make every detail of the shoot perfect—from the playlist to the poses to the… well… everything! I knew her work was great but her vibe is amazing as well, and the makeup artist she worked with made me feel like a completely different person! I absolutely recommend doing a boudoir shoot here. It was definitely a high class, high quality experience."

"Oh my gosh; where do I start?!? Shelly is such an AMAZING human being. I’m so glad I got to have my first boudoir experience with her.

Got my pictures back and ohmygawd I am obsessed!!!  I love the way these photos make me feel and Shelly is literally the best hype woman ever during your shoot! She made me feel incredible and so comfortable! I didn’t think I would look good in many pictures but I ended up having trouble narrowing it down!!"

"I have recommended every woman I run into to do this since getting these pictures back. If you are on the fence about doing this, do it right now. 

If you're looking for a way to spoil yourself, this is it! I had an absolute blast during my photoshoot. Shelly is so much fun to work with. Not to mention, you get your hair and makeup done by professional stylists, so everything is absolutely perfect! I can't say enough how awesome the entire experience is."
