Hey there, Lovely!

 

Just so you can get to know a little about me, I'm a Florida native, former victim advocate, animal lover, and a total nerd!

I firmly believe that every woman deserves to know, see, and celebrate how beautiful and powerful she is, and that is exactly why I'm so passionate about women’s portrait photography. Hearing your story and celebrating your strength, beauty, and heart is what makes my career so special. 

My specialty is natural light and emotive posing, but quality is my top priority. I work one on one with you to provide a completely personalized and unforgettable experience.

 

You can rest easy knowing that I'm with you every step of the way from inquiry, to order delivery and I've worked with women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. I truly see it as an honor and privilege to provide luxury portraits for women just like you.

"Doing a boudoir shoot with Emilee was by far the most empowering experience I’ve had as a woman in a very long time.

I am by nature a very conservative person & I feel as if Emilee & Vivid Elegance respected my body & views. Emilee managed my anxiety with care & compassion. She made me not only look beautiful in my photos by she made me feel beautiful as well. 


I initially did this shoot during a negative time of my life and the boost of confidence & power it gave me, helped me through a difficult time. I order several pictures! And the best part is they aren’t for any person, no husband, boyfriend or significant other. They are for me! All powerful, beautiful & inspiring..Emilee & vivid Elegance reminded me of the person I am. With only a photograph.

 

Now when I feel my spirit slipping, I’ll look at me & remember how power I am! Thank You Emilee & Vivid Elegance!

My #WCW is me myself and I, who else would it be?!

As someone who has struggled so hard over this last year or so trying to rediscover my self love, I did something that terrified me from the second I booked this shoot.

 

I thought I would hate every single picture and walk out of there in tears. But, I was pleasantly surprised and after seeing the rough drafts couldn't even decide which ones to order because I loved most of them!

 

I look back on these pictures and see a kick ass woman who yes, at times still struggles trying to rebuild that self confidence, but also, isn't going to settle for anything less than she deserves..."

FAQs
  • Where are you located?
    My home studio is located in Edgewater, Florida which is about 20 minutes south of Daytona Beach. All sessions outside of boudoir sessions will be conducted on location at a location of your choosing, and travel within 20 miles of zip code 32141 is included with your session fee.
  • What services do you offer?
    I primarily specialize in boudoir photography, but really, I have a love for women's portraiture in general. Please the The Experience page for more information on other services available at Vivid Elegance.
  • Is hair and makeup included?
    Yes! Professional hair styling and makeup application with faux eyelashes is included with every session. I do like to give a little disclaimer that makeup for photography is usually much more dramatic than what you may be used to for everyday wear. Cameras are basically a makeup wipe and flatten makeup looks, so don't be alarmed if your makeup looks heavier in person.
  • But what should I wear?!
    I know this is usually the most daunting question, but I'm here to help! Depending on the type of session, you may want a more professional look, or maybe something more casual or perhaps super glamorous! No matter what you wardrobe needs are, I'll help you find the perfect look for your images. Wardrobe assistance via video chat is included with every session so if you're having trouble, or just have ideas and need an extra pair of eyes to help you mix and match, I'm a zoom call away!
  • Are you going to post my images publicly?
    Not unless you want me to! I never post images of anyone without their written permission. Your privacy is paramount to me, and you always have the final say in whether or not your images are displayed online or elsewhere.
  • Do you photograph couples?
    Yes! Couples are absolutely welcome! From boudoir, to engagements, and even elopements, I am happy to help you celebrate your love story! Please be aware that I do not photograph erotic photography or pornographic images. Vivid Elegance is an LGBTQIA+ ally studio!
  • When should I schedule my session for?
    Great question! I'm typically booked 2-3 months out, so you should definitely contact me ASAP to ensure you will get your desired date. If you have a special occasion that you will need your order by, you should schedule your session for a minimum of 6 weeks in advance of that date. If you're going to need a pre-session payment plan, then you'll want to book even further in advance.
  • I could never look like one of these models!
    ​YES. YOU. CAN. Because not one of the women I've photographed are professional models! As a matter of fact, they're everyday women with scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and cellulite, just like you! And that's a beautiful thing! They're mothers, wives, career women, even grandmas! Don't let societal standards of beauty stand in the way of you loving yourself!
  • Where will my session take place?
    Boudoir sessions take place in my home studio, in Edgewater, Florida. Don't worry, it's a girl's only day and I have some gorgeous sets that we will go through during your session, including a traditional boudoir bedroom set, luxury purple velvet, tufted couches, and a stunning brick fireplace with candles!
  • Is hair and makeup included?
    Yes! Professional hair styling and makeup application with faux eyelashes is included with every session. I do like to give a little disclaimer that makeup for photography is usually much more dramatic than what you may be used to for everyday wear. Cameras are basically a makeup wipe and flatten makeup looks, so don't be alarmed if your makeup looks heavier in person.
  • Do you photograph couples?
    Yes! Couples are absolutely welcome! From boudoir, to engagements, and even elopements, I am happy to help you celebrate your love story! Please be aware that I do not photograph erotic photography or pornographic images. Vivid Elegance is an LGBTQIA+ ally studio!
  • But what should I wear?!
    A typical boudoir wardrobe mostly consists of lingerie, however, lingerie is not a requirement! When you book your session or join the Vivid Elegance email list, you will receive a complimentary lingerie guide that also includes non-lingerie ideas and a list of places to shop. I also provide my clients with a client closet with different lingerie options. I have sizes from Small to 4X. All you really need to bring is a handful of black or nude thongs and arrive with your nails done, a clean face, and clean, DRY hair! Wardrobe assistance via video chat is included with every session so if you're having trouble, or just have ideas and need an extra pair of eyes to help you mix and match, I'm a zoom call away!
  • Can I bring props to my session?
    The only "props" I encourage clients to bring are sentimental items, such as your significant other's button down shirt or sports jersey, your bridal veil, shoes, & garter, and heirloom jewelry (engagement ring, grandma's pearls, etc.) I do not photograph adult toys, novelty costumes, or weapons of any kind.
  • I'm super nervous! Can I bring a friend with me?
    Yes! You may bring with you 1 female friend who is over the age of eighteen with you to cheer you on during your session! Please make sure this person is your biggest cheerleader! Unless you are doing a couple's session, I don't allow partners to be present until the image reveal since their presence can actually make you more nervous and hinder your experience. They're welcome to drop you off and help you get settled in beforehand though! Please be aware that no animals (aside from a registered service animal) and no persons under the age of eighteen are allowed in the studio at any time. No exceptions.
  • Is there an age limit on boudoir sessions?
    No! I've photographed women of all ages. Please don't let your age deter you from a wonderful experience that you 100% deserve to enjoy to the fullest! However, there is an age minimum. I will not photograph boudoir for any client under the age of 18 and I do ask that you bring your official state ID or driver's license with you to verify your age.
  • What kind of products do you offer?
    Vivid Elegance proudly offers custom, heirloom quality albums, folio boxes, digital files, and wall art. All of our albums are customizable and imported from Europe. Customization options include luxury cover materials, page gilding, & more! With proper care, your fine art products will last for generations to come. For more information on our products and collections, please visit the investment page.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Yes! Pre-session payment plans are available and are interest free! Please visit the payment options page to learn more.
  • When will I receive my order?
    Because most products are imported, the typical turn around time is 4-6 weeks from your session date. PLEASE NOTE: It is highly recommended that you schedule your session for a minimum of 6 weeks in advance of any special dates (wedding, anniversary, birthday, etc.) and an 8 week minimum is recommended for holidays (Christmas & Valentine's Day)
