Flash Boudoir’s female owners and photographers, Tina Celle and Melissa Mulera, help women of all sizes find their sexy side during boudoir photo shoots. After arriving at the studio with their own lingerie, high heels, or sexy girdles, women may sip on champagne while harkening to the individualized advice of savvy stylists. Sirens then pose for sultry snapshots with the studio’s collection of jewelry and props, such as brand-new angel wings, which Arizona Foothills magazine calls “a big girl’s dress-up box.” After the session, photo editors remove any glare or sexy paranormal plasma, and models receive 8”x10” prints of their most sensual selves. Aesthetic admiration continues online with a web-based viewing gallery, which clients can browse before using the $50 credit to order more prints or other photographic products, such as albums, CDs, calendars, or canvas wraps. Customers may add additional outfit changes for $75 each or have their hair and makeup done for an extra fee.
A sultry boudoir shoot rarely emphasizes its subject’s wingspan, but the two female photographers who helm Flash Boudoir—Tina Celle and Melissa Mulera—never shy away from an unusual image. Featured by ABC15, their shots can capture women sporting lingerie and feathered wings, artistically draped in bed sheets, and posing for pinup shots in vintage-style swimsuits. As she shoots, Tina draws on her years in fashion journalism, whereas Melissa pulls from her background in fine art and graphic design. Their private studio brims with unique sets for clients to choose from, such as beds piled in pink sateen and pole-dancing sets featuring rehabilitated tetherball poles.
