What is Boudoir?
Every woman deserves to experience the empowerment of a boudoir photoshoot!
Chances are, you've spent too much time focusing on your flaws, and not enough time Appreciating your beauty. Boudoir gets you out of your comfort zone, allows you to see yourself in a new light, and see just how gorgeous you really are!
You don't need any experience at all!
None of the women on my site are models - they're everyday women just like you!
Your beautiful fine-art images will always be there to remind you of that beautiful,
you are, whenever you need a reminder!
Self Love is not selfish; you cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself.
I'm Ashley! a 35 yr old boudoir photographer, and dog mom of 3, from Greensboro, NC. I have worked for 15 years in the beauty and style industry as a hairstylist, and makeup artist, and obtained my photography degree in 2014. Throughout that journey, I began to realize, that the thing that brought me the most joy was helping women see their beauty, and feel confidant in their skin. Growing up in the ballet world, I saw at a young age the body image issues, and insecurity that so many women face. When I discovered boudoir photography, I immediately fell in love with the power it has to change the way a woman sees herself. I am a firm believer that how we feel on the inside is directly reflected in our outer world. I feel so fortunate to be able to use all the skills I’ve learned along my path thus far to create this uplifting experience for so many women, and I love knowing that those positive feelings will ripple outward and affect all areas of their lives.

Your shoot will take place in my completely private studio in High Point, NC. You will be greeted with a beverage, and get to relax while your hair and makeup is styled to perfection. During the shoot, I will guide you through every pose so you will never feel unsure of what to do!
Photo Reveal and Ordering
You'll come back to the studio to view your gorgeous images, and order only the ones you love! I offer packages that include stunning heirloom albums, a variety of wall art options, as well as digital image files.
"Being a new mom, I was nervous to be back in lingerie, nervous about my body. That quickly faded! Ashley made me feel so comfortable in my skin! I didn't have to worry about where to look or how to hold my body. She told me exactly what to do...It's been over a month since my shoot and I'm still walking with my head held high!" - A
"...Before the shoot, I was nervous because I hadn't met Ashley before and I'm not the most confident person with my body. All nerves melted away pretty quickly though! Ashley was very professional but also easy to chat with. I was completely pleased with my hair and makeup also. It was better than I imagined and made me even more excited to shoot!..."
"I picked up my album today and I am seriously in love!!!.....This is the best thing I have done for myself in quite sometime. I've never felt more empowered or confident than I do after looking at all the images Ashley captured. Our bodies are capable of amazing things, and they ALL deserve to be celebrated!" -A
"My experience with Velvet and Vine Boudoir was something that I highly recommend every woman experience. Everything from beginning to end was extremely well done and professional. Ashley ...did an amazing job talking me through each motion and style that we were shooting at the time. Each set is styled and paired with a well curated backdrop that makes the final photos super tasteful. If you’re considering a boudoir shoot but feel nervous, don’t be! There is a comfort level with Velvet and Vine that makes you feel comfortable in your own skin from the beginning. This is an experience that will change the way you see yourself and leave you with so much confidence moving forward." - C

How does the professional hair and makeup work?All you have to do the day of your shoot is show up with clean hair and face, and my professional hair and makeup artist will be there at the studio with all the makeup and beauty tools for every skin and hair type. You can let her know the type of look you would like, or just let her do her thing if you don't know, and she will expertly style you to look your absolute best!
Will my images be shared online?I only share images with client permission! After your ordering appointment you can choose to allow sharing of some, all, or none of your images. You can rest assured that I will never post an image online without consent!
I want to do a shoot but I'm so nervous....Everyone is nervous! After all, this is a new experience, that's outside your comfort zone, and it's totally normal to be nervous. New experiences help us to grow, and I promise as soon as we start, those nerves will go away. When you see your gorgeous images, it will be totally worth it!
I'm not a model, and I have no clue how to pose, can I do this?"Absolutely! I will walk you through everything and demonstrate exactly what to do!
What should I wear or bring? Does it have to be lingerie?Once you book, I will send out a lingerie and style guide with everything you need to know. I also have a constantly growing client closet that you have full access to. And no, it doesnt have to be lingerie. Oversize sweaters, men's shirts, leather jackets, and kimonos are all beautiful alternatives that can be just as sexy!
