Stephanie Sundell calls upon 18 years of fashion-photography experience to capture every fetching feature and smoky glance in sharp digital images. After scheduling a boudoir session and consulting with exclusively female staff members, subjects don their sultriest teddy or skimpiest hazmat suit and step in front of the camera as the photographer offers knowledgeable guidance on poses and positions in a private and pressure-free setting. At the conclusion of the shoot, centerfolds saunter home to peruse and choose their favorite images on a password-protected website. Photo professionals retouch and enhance the chosen shots, then present clients with a CD of all 10 images to create as many professional prints, racy emails, or surprising mortgage applications as they desire. Subjects can also boost their bombshell status with professional hair and makeup services for an additional $75.

Lauren Taylor lives in an orbit around the camera. As a teenager, she modeled in front of the lens. She later attended the Institute of Studio and Makeup Design, after which she would collaborate with photographers behind the camera. Lauren eventually gravitated to the camera itself, which she now wields with aplomb in her own photography studio. Here, her life-long experience and education converge in the work of shooting sumptuous and striking images.
Thanks to her time in the sights of the camera eye, Lauren has a particular way of making subjects feel comfortable. She especially enjoys sessions with other women, documenting expectant mothers or capturing sensual boudoir portraits. Otherwise, Lauren's newborn shoots capture babies in their most innocent state, before they learn to talk or knit a ski-mask. Lauren still exercises her eye for fashion, snapping stills for advertisements and industry headshots. She also documents weddings, taking a photojournalistic approach to event photography by capturing candid moments and emotional milestones.
For photographers, the process of capturing meaningful portraits requires more than first-rate equipment and technical know-how. As the team at Jack Randall Photography knows, photographers must also establish a comfortable environment for their subjects. Armed with high-resolution digital cameras, Jack Randall's photographers capture casual poses and candid moments during shoots conducted at their indoor studio—where subjects can model with props and different backgrounds—or at a variety of scenic, Orange County–area beaches and parks. The photography troupe covers special events including weddings and engagements, as well important milestones, such as high-school graduations or a toddler's graduation from fruit purée to fruit roll-ups.
The Boudoir Divas want to make the "ultimate supermodel experience" accessible to every woman, and the website's testimonial page offers happily tearful proof of that mission's success. For example, client Susan wanted to shed her everyday style for a day of flashbulbs and glamour. She starts her anecdote by describing the consultation she had in the jazzy, girly dressing room, and finishes her story by confessing that when she saw her prints, she cried. Susan described the experience as life-changing, saying, "it was just one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Second to my wedding."
Creating these unforgettable experiences is an all-female staff of photographers, makeup artists, and image editors, who run a 6,500-square-foot studio that houses a dressing room, more than 16 sets, and an area to review subjects' proofs. Spangled with vanity lights, the crimson dressing room is lined with a wall of shoes, and opposite, a wardrobe rack is strewn with leopard print, tulle, fringe, and lace, offering a variety of mix-and-match outfit choices. Numerous packages are available, and the Divas' portfolio is divided into Romantic, Supermodel Sassy, Fine Art, and Simply Beautiful categories.
