Right now, in this moment, YOU ARE PERFECT.
Stop being afraid of the camera
I created Dream Boudoir as an act of defiance. As a girl born and raised in Pakistan, I am all too familiar with the unique challenges that come with being a woman.
I want you to feel bolder, more powerful, and more comfortable in your own skin.
These are more than just photographs — it’s a life-changing experience.
Once I have photographed you, you will see yourself in a new light.
I can’t wait to help you see the beauty you have been hiding inside.
Bringing Out the Authentic You
Bold. Confident. Shamelessly Empowered.

"Two years ago I decided to buy my own house and move out with my kids. And ever since I've done that, my life has improved by leaps and bounds. And right now I feel free, I feel empowered, I feel like I've never felt better. So this photoshoot was definitely a culmination of all those feelings. When I first saw the proofs right after our session I was very critical of myself. I wish I had lost a few more pounds before I had the shoot. But now looking at the photos, I'm like, 'I look pretty good!' After I became single again I was like I need to look really good if I wanna have a chance finding love again. I had this really high bar that I had set for myself. Looking at those photos I think I feel like I've met my bar. I've lost 50 pounds over the last 5 years. I've been really into health and exercise and that shows in those photos. I feel triumphant. For the last few months I have been telling myself that hey that I've met all my financial goals. And now, it's time for me. My 20s were about my career, my 30s were about my kids, and my 40s are going to be about me."

“My experience was absolutely amazing, Alishba was able to take my vague ideas and turn them into a complete work of art! Her talent, kindness and compassion were so present in my session with her. My hair and makeup was so beautiful and simplistic. I was still able to ‘look like me’ while capturing my inner and outer beauty. My time with Alishba and her team will be one I cherish as a strong motivation for self confidence, inner strength and self love. I love everything about the picture, even down to my freckles! I cannot thank you enough, this entire day and the work you have captured is absolutely incredible!”

What is a Boudoir Photoshoot?
Boudoir is a genre of photography that features women in a bedroom or private room setting. It’s all about tailoring the experience to the Dreamgirl and whatever she wants from it. It’s not about anyone else but you. We capture the confident and comfortable side of you that you may not always get to see so that you can embrace your body and who you are.
I’ve never done anything like this. What if I’m shy?
Our team has had years of experience coaching women just like you through this thrilling session. We’re here to give you the luxury experience you deserve that is tailored to your needs. By the time we’re through, your photos will look as effortless as if you were lounging about at home. And embrace that excitement — you’re allowed to be bold!
Can I bring my partner?
We also offer couples photography if your special someone is up for the thrill.
Where is the studio located?
Our luxury studio is in Mississauga, Ontario and Vancouver, B.C.
When will I get to see my photos?
The same day! We schedule a cinematic screening to reveal your photos. The anticipation leading up to that moment is exhilarating and we’re quite used to seeing our Dreamgirls moved to tears as they finally see themselves in all their glory.
Will you retouch my acne/wrinkles/cellulite?
Absolutely! But to be honest most women don’t want too much retouching once they see their photos. We light and pose you to bring out beauty and you rarely need airbrushing.
Can you make me look good even if I’m curvy/full-bodied?
You’re gorgeous just as you are! Our mission is to give every type of woman the opportunity to see that within themselves. We specialize in working with women of all shapes and ages. We want to see you!
I don’t look like a model. Do you work with everyday women?
I don’t know how to pose. Will you guide me during a session?
Alishba has over 10 years of experience in posing women and understanding their needs. So you can be sure that you always will be posed in the most flattering way and under the most flattering lighting. During the session, you will be given very simple and short directions on how to pose such as “bring your chin forward”,”look up at me with your eyes”,”put your left hand on your left thigh”,etc. Alishba will also show you each pose personally and if you allow— she will help you to put a hands in the right position, fix your hair etc.
I’m a plus size woman—should I loose some weight before my shoot?
What should I wear on my boudoir photo session?
Will my photos be on your website? Can my photos be private?
Where will my Boudoir session take place?
Toronto area sessions take place in our beautiful, dedicated separate entrance professional photography studio attached to the house.

What should I bring?
We photograph 3-4 different looks – including nude or topless depending on your level of comfort. We encourage you to bring in any jewellery, accessories or props that mean something to you or your loved one. We’ve had Dreamgirls in the past bring in everything from guitars to bow & arrows! We also have some beautiful props here, varying from angel wings, dreamy luxury robes, to gorgeous dresses and pearls, which you are, of course, free to choose from.
Do I need to bring my own lingerie or props?
Yes, we don’t provide any underwear. We do however have some beautiful props like robes and fabrics – but it’s always best if props and accessories are personal to you. Props are really effective in telling your story and can help with the posing so bring something that you or your partner enjoy.
