Do You Have What It Takes to be Boudoir Certified?

If you are a photographer or are passionate about photography and want a successful business in the industry, you’re in the right place!

I’ve been a photographer for over 13 years, and I’ve been able to build a successful (I’m talking 6-figures successful!) business through a lot of hard work, trial and error, and education. There are two main components to my business success: my systems and my niche.

Let’s talk about the niche:

Boudoir is the most profitable and more rewarding photography niche in the entire industry.

I love boudoir because not because it’s the secret to my financial success, but because of what it gives to my clients. Boudoir is so empowering to women around the world because it helps them get back in touch with their own beauty and to start seeing themselves as the goddesses they truly are. Clients might say they’re getting the shoot done as a gift for their significant others, but by the time they leave my studio it’s transformed into a gift to themselves! And, truth be told, a lot of my clients are single and are 100% doing it for themselves!

I had a hard time getting enough boudoir bookings when I was first starting out because there was so little buzz about it. I was lucky if people knew what it was, and then even luckier if they were willing to give it a try! All of that also made it difficult to earn more than $200 off of a shoot. But after enough time, the right marketing strategies, and a changing market, I was able to build and grow to where I can earn $2,000 or more per shoot!

Now is the perfect time to get started in the boudoir photography industry! The hype is growing and more and more women want to book shoots!

I am insanely passionate about two things: empowering women and helping photographers be successful in their businesses. That’s why I created my Boudoir Certified program!

It’s essentially a business in a box that walks you through how to do boudoir photography and how to build a successful photography business from marketing strategies to pricing guides and more! Many of my students make $5,000 in their first month! Some that have been in the program for a few months have worked their worked their way up to making $25k to $30k in a month! The tactics I teach work consistently, no matter the photographer or the location.

But there is a little catch…I don’t accept just anyone into the program.

I am dedicated to getting results, and if you check out my case study you’ll see that I have more testimonials than I do students (there are only about 140 students and this is out first year of the program). I’m not out to get as many people as I can to sign up so that I can make millions: I am dedicated to helping photographers build successful businesses, but that means I only work with the ones that want successful businesses.

Maybe you think I’m crazy, because of course everyone wants a successful business! But there are some that want it more, that are passionate and dedicated and willing to do the work.

Because Boudoir Certified is not a magic pill. It might be a business in a box, but it requires implementation and work on your part for it to get results.

That’s why I only work with certain people and have an application process for my program.

Interested in joining Boudoir Certified? Here’s an overview of what I look for in a successful applicant. Check it out, see if you meet the criteria, and then, if you do, apply for your complimentary strategy session that doubles as an application! 

DO be passionate!! Not just passionate about photography, but also about about empowering women! The strategies I teach can be applied to any type of photography, but they will be most successful when used for boudoir, not to mention boudoir photography is so much more rewarding on a whole!

DON’T be a snob! I will not work with photographers that only care about their art and not their clients. It blows my mind that there are catty photographers out there that care about being the best and completely overlook the whole purpose of boudoir, which is empowerment. The Boudoir Certified family is about support, so if you have a bad attitude, you won’t be accepted.

DO be motivated and driven! You will have to do work. You will have to be willing to put in some hours every week learning and implementing the strategies. If you’re looking for someone to do the work for you, or if you’re the kind of person that likes to watch Netflix for 5 hours a day and can’t finish a project, this program is not for you. You will only get results if you make them happen. If you’re not willing to do the work, you won’t be accepted.

No experience required! You do not have to have any boudoir photography experience to be accepted into the program. It could help you get bigger results faster, but it’s not a requirement. In fact, you don’t even need professional photography experience! A few of the Boudoir Certified students didn’t have a photography business or any sort before joining, and I was still able to help them build a successful business. 

You don’t need a studio! I can show you how to shoot boudoir without a studio, so don’t let that hold you back from applying. If you want a studio to be a goal for you, I can help you achieve that! 

We’re world wide! There are currently students in the program from the U.S., Australia, Europe, Mexico, Canada…we are not location based (everything is online), so you can apply from anywhere in the world! The program is in English, but otherwise there are no restrictions on who can apply and who can’t based on location. 

Ultimately, you need to be motivated, you need to be passionate, you need to be positive, and you need to be an implementor. Does that sound like you? Apply now at
