the experience 

Hello, 
I'm Malie 
Osborn 

hello, beautiful 

   Curating beautiful art is what gives my heart the purest joy. I began my boudoir career a decade ago and I love photographing women in their most intimate and raw state. The experience of seeing yourself in a sensual way is intoxicating. You may have never thought of yourself as beautiful or sexy... but after your session, you will feel differently. You will be proud, excited and beyond happy that you gifted yourself this session and most importantly this experience of self-love.
   When I considered becoming a boudoir photographer, I invested in my own boudoir session. And I like to compare it to skydiving, (both of which I have done and quite enjoyed!) it's exhilarating, a little terrifying (full honesty here!) and deeply moving. It shifts how you view yourself and you are never the same afterwards. You are stronger, fierce and might I say, even kinder to yourself as a woman. I know this is how I felt after my session, and I’m passionate about creating this feeling for you too. 
   Our philosophy is all about self care, self love and empowering you to be your most beautiful and brave self. We all have days where we fell less than desirable and far from beautiful- but having this experience (and that lovely album and wall art) is a beautiful reminder that you are magnificent and truly breathtaking and worthy of this experience. I look forward to hearing from you and cannot wait to create something beautiful, together. 

biographie

For as long as I can remember, I've always gravitated towards love and beauty. Each of our boudoir sessions unfolds like a story, has depth and exudes romance. I create beautiful photos that intentionally posses elegance and empower you to see just how beautiful you truly are. I love to document our boudoir sessions in the most romantic and artistic manner so you may cherish this experience for years to come.

We have had hundreds of women grace our studio doors and honor us with their portraiture. Being a boudoir photographer is such a profound and deep honor, it's humbling and beautiful to be apart of a woman's experience with these intimate portraits. I love helping women be empowered and love documenting female beauty and sensuality. When I first began this boudoir career, I wanted to walk in my client's shoes, and actually had my own boudoir shoot. This experience taught me a great deal and inspired how I approach each client's session. I want your experience from the moment you contact our studio to be incredible and empowering. Therefore, we guide and help you through every aspect of creating your dream session, from hair and makeup inspiration (we also secure your styling appointments with our Glam Squad!) to wardrobe selection, to guiding and showing you to pose so that every image is beautiful and empowering and of course flattering.  We also love to play art curator and will help you create beautiful artwork that you may gift or display in your home.

Documenting your boudoir imagery in the most beautiful, romantic and artistic manner. As a formal model (in my teenage years) I learned all about posing, direction and editorial / fashion campaigns and that has served me well in my boudoir photography career. It inspired much of my imagery today. Most recently, my fine art work has been featured across the globe to include the iconic Louvre Gallery in Paris, France, featured on the largest billboard in Time Square, NYC and in private gallery exhibitions including Art Basil in Miami, Hong Kong and Germany.

I wanted to do a boudoir shoot for quite some time and after seeing one of my girlfriends boudoir images with Malie- I knew I had to call her and book my own session. I'm so glad I did. This was an experience I will never forget. This was an investment for me and of course of husband too. She is worth every penny and more. Don't skimp on your boudoir photography- this is a luxury and you absolutely deserve it! Every aspect of my session was carefully curated for me, and on the day of my session she treated me like I was a dear friend. We laughed and just had a great time together- my images were stunning and I never felt more beautiful and sexy in my life. Ps. Thanks for the amazing Mimosa's!!!

NATALIE 

My experience with Malie could not have been better! From the very first phone call when I initially began my research into photographers till the follow ups after the photo-shoot had taken place, she was kind, professional and considerate - not to mention the pictures turned out breathtaking! She made me feel beautiful, comfortable, and able to express my own thoughts and opinions on outfits, poses, and locations, but she was always willing to give her advice on these topics since she is an expert! I have recommend her to many of my bride to be friends, and will continue to do so, the photos and the photographer are equally amazing.

"THe pictures were breathtaking."

COURTNEY

Malie was a dream. Her personality and how she coaches you into each pose and why to pose this way or that- she truly is an artist in every sense of the word. I can see why her artwork has been featured in Vogue and around the world. You can just feel how much she loves what she does. She made me feel like a Victoria Secret supermodel. This was an experience that I will cherish forever. It was such an empowering and uplifting experience and I encourage every woman to try it! Thank you so much Malie for making me feel sexy and giving me my confidence back! 

"I NEVER KNEW I COULD FEEL THIS BEAUTIFUL!"

KATIE 

Words cannot express how THANKFUL I am for finding Malie and her boudoir photography. I searched online to find the perfect Virginia Beach bridal boudoir photographer and came across Malie. I loved her images and reached out to her. She immediately called back + we talked on the phone for an hour. I was nervous during my session, but she made me feel so relaxed and we laughed the entire time. She helped me with outfits, posing and the best makeup + hair inspiration. My images were phenomenal! I cried when I first saw them. My husband was awe struck. This was such an incredible experience and I've recommended Malie to ALL my girlfriends! You won't be disappointed!
