BEAUTY COMES IN ALL SHAPES, SIZES, AND AGES
Trust me, you are perfect right now.
I can’t begin to tell you how many emails I receive from women who want to see just how sexy they are but they get concerned if they’ll be judged. LADIES, hear me when I say this at my all-female, Toronto boudoir photography studio, curvy and plus-size women are MORE THAN WELCOME!
In fact, you are so welcome that because of high demand, most of the client wardrobe selection that I have is actually beyond sample sizes of size 2s and 4s. Most often the women that come to me fit sizes 8 – 14. This curvy boudoir photography inspiration page is dedicated to all those women who have walked in my studio to take a huge leap towards self-love and self care, leaving these arbitrary sizing at the doorstep.

Hear How Others Felt After Their Session
"She made me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed"
I had my photos done by Alishba a few months ago and am so happy I did! The whole process was fun and exciting, from getting my hair and make up done to feeling like a model...she made me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed.
I was so pleased with the outcome and absolutely love my album! I would highly recommend Dream Boudoir Photography to anyone thinking about doing a boudoir photo shoot..you won't regret it!
"The entire experience was top notch from beginning to end."
I booked this session to celebrate a personal milestone. It was everything I could have dreamed of. The entire experience was top notch from beginning to end. I was wonderfully pampered while getting ready.
Alishba is incredibly professional and a true artist. The direction she gave made all my nerves go away. The end results were true works of art! I would highly recommend the Dream Boudoir experience.
"I don’t think it would be possible to get a better experience."
I don’t think it would be possible to get a better experience. Terri on the phone is a delight throughout the booking process and even after.
Once you get to the studio, Alishba will become your best friend for the day. She is a kind gentle person who would make the most self conscious person comfortable. Maya, the makeup artist, will make you look your best and she is the sweetest to unwind with before your shoot. 10/10 would recommend. 🙂
"My shoot was perfect, she coached me all the way through"
Dream Boudoir is AMAZING. My hair and makeup was fantastic and Alishba is an incredible photographer. I chose her because I really liked her style, but what really sold me was how vocal she was about her feminism.
It made me want to give her business. My shoot was perfect, she coached me all the way through it and the finished product was so beautiful! Highly recommend. Book with her; you won't be disappointed!!
"I still looked like myself (just the best version of me)"
Alishba was absolutely incredible to work with. Very professional, very welcoming, very fun! The space was clean and warm, and I felt zero inhibitions being in my lingerie in front of her or in the space. There is zero body shaming, only positivity - which was very important to me and in making my experience a good one.
She made me feel comfortable and welcome immediately, and our shoot was almost like a couple of old friends taking photos together. And the finished images - WOW! So perfect and incredible, but I still looked like myself (just the best version of me). 5 out of 5 stars, I would highly recommend Dream Boudoir to anyone!
"I was so nervous but Alishba helped me to relax and enjoy every minute of it. "
My photo shoot experience was amazing! I was so nervous but Alishba helped me to relax and enjoy every minute of it. I loved having my hair and make up done for me. It looked awesome!
I felt like a super model. I worked so hard to lose 20 pounds over the last 10 months and the shoot was my reward to myself. I am so glad I chose Dream Boudoir to do my boudoir shoot.
Right now, in this moment, YOU ARE PERFECT.
Stop being afraid of the camera
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A MODEL
TORONTO BOUDOIR FOR CURVY WOMEN
This curvy boudoir photography inspiration page is dedicated to all those women who have walked in my studio to take a huge leap towards self-love and self care, leaving these arbitrary sizing at the doorstep. What I am trying to say is that, to me, it DOES NOT matter what your size is when it comes to posing, lighting, and photographing you in the most flattering way possible, in a way that stays true to the authentic sexy that you are. I have never met a woman who was photographed by me who STILL had insecurities about her body after looking at her pictures! Boudoir is for EVERY WOMAN. It’s for the ones who practically live in gyms AND it’s for those who have other goals in life.
Trust me when I say that right now, in this moment, you are as perfect as ever, and as ready as ever, to take a beautiful look at yourself!

RETOUCHING & EDITING PHILOSOPHY
Retouching and Editing Philosophy: I started loving Photoshop more than 15 years ago. So am I pro enough to completely change the way you look? Yep. But would I ever do that? NO. NEVER. If you want to keep your stretch marks in the final image, I will keep them there (just like I kept mine in my shoot). If you want to keep your gorgeous, round tush the way it is, NO PROBLEM! I will keep it that way.
My promise to you is that I will never photoshop you in a way that doesn’t reflect the real you. You should come to my studio and look at the gorgeous canvas samples I have to take a look at how DELICATELY I retouch skin (I NEVER blur your skin. I retouch your skin the way authentic high-end magazine producers do — I learned my craft very well), flatter your curves, and make sure that the images make you feel like yourself, not someone else. I want you to smile, laugh, walk with confidence, and cry with joy knowing that you rocked your curves!
