Your Photographer

Your photographer

A boudoir photo session with Mike McCarthy is more than just a photo shoot. It is an experience. From personal consultation, pampering by our hair and make-up artists all the way through to personal delivery of your final prints, digital images or albums, you will be treated with the utmost respect, discreetly and privately.

We believe that everyone is beautiful and it is our promise to you that we will provide the style of images you want and that you will look your very best using styling, lighting and proven posing techniques.

We’ve been at this for a while and we are here to help you make the best of one of the most self-empowering adventures to which you will ever treat yourself.

Mike, your photographer, has been an avid photographer for over 35 years. He fell in love with photographing people, specifically glamour and beauty genres, in 2008 and has been working at perfecting the art of beauty and boudoir ever since.

Mike has won numerous international awards for both his sports and glamour photography and has been published in numerous magazines around the world, including Maxim Online, Volo and Andivero.

In late 2014, Mike started Elegant Boudoir to help create a place for positive experiences for all our clients and to help facilitate the kind of high quality self empowering experiences that he felt were simply not available in HRM or, in fact, in Atlantic Canada previously.

If you’d like to arrange a personal, private consultation, please use our contact page or call us at (902) 488-1441.

As a last word, we respect your privacy and will not add you to a mailing list or send you unsolicited marketing mail or emails. We will not share your private information and your images are safe with us. We will only share your images if you agree to let us. Period.

Thanks for dropping by for a visit, we hope you enjoy your stay. :)y
