For Leila, Seriously Sexy Boudoir's resident shutterbug, sexiness isn't about how much skin a woman shows, but how she shows it. During one- to two-hour boudoir and maternity boudoir sessions in a private, female-only studio, her all-women team guides guests through each pose. Whether with a suggestively arched back, pouty lips, or a flirtatious wink, the team works to ensure that every image has a sultry touch devoid of redeye, which only serves to seduce Terminators. For an additional fee, Leila provides professional hair and makeup work, top-notch lighting, impressive sets, and appropriate wardrobe suggestions to enhance the experience even more.
Afterward, Leila invites clients back for an unveiling, where they can review every image and examine samples of products that can preserve their favorite shots. Leila digitally retouches each picture in her digital darkroom before creating prints, high-resolution images, or photo albums.
A silver-place winner in the photography-studio category of The Virginian-Pilot's 2011 Best of Hampton Roads awards, Kaiser Custom Images earns local plaudits backed by more than 20 years of combined experience capturing memories. In a 3,000-square-foot studio, skilled photographers collaborate with clients to set up the shoot’s themes before snapping a slew of pictures to get the perfect pose of up to six people wearing everyday attire, Sunday best, or matching invisibility cloaks. After choosing the preferred portrait, the studio emblazons the image onto a 5"x7" print and a batch of 4"x8" Slimline cards that personalize festive greetings with themes including winter holidays, Valentine's Day, birthday invites, and more. Photos will be ready about one week after the shoot; patrons with designs for handing out holiday cards to friends, family, and abominable Christmas trees should make an appointment soon, as sessions for Christmas-card orders must take place by December 5, 2011.

RST is one of the few businesses of this nature that also included props free of charge with all their photo booth rentals.
