Originally a still-life art form, boudoir photography switched to human subjects when clothiers stopped making apple-size garter belts. Bite the fruits of seduction with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a boudoir photo package at Ashira Photography (a $545 total value) that includes:
- 60-minute in-studio photo shoot (a $420 value)

Pairing vintage-photography enthusiasm with years of experience behind the lens, Kalysa Wilson of Ashira Photography unleashes her time-tested studio approach to coax the sophisticated vixen deep inside every woman up to the more photographable surface. Each 60-minute shoot enrobes ladies in up to three different outfits, allowing subjects to role-play the glamorous lives of seductive starlets, chic rock stars, or sexy CPAs. After slipping into clothes culled from home closets or the studio’s wardrobe of wares, subjects sip on champagne or non-alcoholic bubbly as they work with Wilson in pursuit of evocative and intimate shots set against the studio’s various backgrounds, textures, and scenes. Expectant mothers skip the champagne break before creating lasting art out of pregnancy’s fleeting moments, preserving images of their baby bumps and sets of feathery maternity wings.
After each shoot, muses access their finished proofs through Ashira’s password-protected website, where they peruse their 30–50 edited snapshots and select the 24 that best show off their sultry left elbow. Each subject gets to take home an 8”x8” magazine containing their prints, suitable for gifting to a special someone or injecting new life into the library’s next book drive. Though not included in this Groupon, customers can also purchase digital copies of their images after the shoot for an extra fee.
Kalysa Wilson owns Ashira Photography, a boudoir and pinup studio that accentuates the glamorous qualities of its clientele. Professional makeup applications and new hairstyles can exaggerate models’ beauty before they pose for boudoir, pregnancy-boudoir, or pinup-style shoots. During photo-snapping sessions, ladies can bring their own outfits or pose in costumes provided by the studio, which include a short fur coat, satin gloves, and lacy lederhosen. Afterward, professional retouching allows women to look their best in online galleries or in print form.
