Day 10 : Meet Emily | 10 Days of Giveaways


Hi, Im Emily! Photographer at Emily Megan and Love, Emily Boudoir.  After a long journey of self love and discovery through my 20s I have realized that the relationship you have with yourself is the most important relationship you will ever have.

My thoughts when it comes to boudoir?

You don’t have to wait until you lose 30 more pounds, you don’t have to wait until the kids are older, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion.

Self love, self care, and investing in yourself are important pieces of living a beautiful life.

Boudoir is for every single body and you deserve this at any stage of life. Let’s celebrate you and who you are right now.


Common Questions About Boudoir + Love, Emily

Do you photograph plus size women?
Yes! I have photographed women of all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life. 21 year olds to 60 year olds. Petite to plus size. Moms. Stretch marks. Models. Amputees. You will notice that lighting and posing plays an important role in the outcome of your images, let’s show you off!

Why do women do a boudoir session?
It’s really all across the board! Wedding gift, celebrating a milestone, just for fun, a recent heartbreak, weight loss/gain, a confidence boost. Everyone’s reason to do a boudoir session is unique to them and a very personal choice.

Will you share my images?
Only if you say so! There are multiple privacy options to choose from and you don’t have to share them at all! Although, a lot of women do change their mind after the session and want to show them off! I totally respect and understand your wishes.

Are you going to pose me?
Yes! Direction and posing is key! Its a workout and I come to sessions in athletic wear for this reason – I am constantly demonstrating, posing, and moving around to guide you.

I’m nervous!
Everyone is! Within 5 minutes you will feel comfortable and realize its not like anything you had in your mind. While the images are HOT, doing a boudoir session is not sexual in any way. Think yoga in your underwear.

Will you photoshop me?
Part of doing a boudoir session is to see yourself in a new light and to gain confidence. Will I remove imperfections – if you want me to! Will I reshape your body? No. Posing, lighting, and direction will show you who you are in a whole new way! I do not want to give you images that are just another unrealistic thing to compare yourself to. Anyone can do this and that includes YOU.

Where is your studio located?
I have a private and unique studio in a historic area of Appleton, Wisconsin. Think industrial windows, lots of plants, a modern vibe and a view of the river! If you would like to see before/afters of the studio project, click here.

Aren’t you a wedding photographer?
YES! I am a full time wedding photographer and owner of Emily Megan Photography. I still photograph a full season of weddings each year and my studio work is focused on boudoir.

    Doing the boudoir shoot was just the self love, confidence booster I needed at age 45! I was very nervous and it took me a year to actually go through with it.

    I’d love a session like this to gift to myself and my husband! What a confidence booster! I’m happy to read that you photograph women of all sizes, because that’s what I’m always most nervous about. What if we don’t have a boudoir wardrobe for a shoot?

  38. April says:

    I absolutely loved working with you and started talking about my next session soon after! It was fun and it gave me such confidence! Thank you for doing what you do and the organization of these giveaways…. dang girl!!!!

  39. Leighia Francis says:

    First off I had so many thoughts when I scheduled mine and I would say schedule it sooner than later, we will give ourselves thousands of reasons to back out and we never will feel fully ready. Emily is amazing and you will feel amazing regardless of if your single, married, engaged, have kids, etc.

  40. Marisa says:

    Really considering doing one of these. Shoots. Just need to do it!

  43. Stephanie Peters says:

    I’d love to give a session a try! I have recently lost weight and I’m still learning to love my body. Do you have pieces we could borrow for the shoot if we don’t have much? I love seeing the photos you post too. What a great giveaway to let someone who may be nervous about it give it a try!

  44. Mary says:

    This is such a great giveaway! I love your tips

  45. Mary nieland says:

    This is such a great giveaway. I love how mich info you give about the session to make sure people are informed and feel comfortable

  46. Katerina says:

    I think what you do is awesome! You are giving women confidence and that is something I always strive to give even when I only have so much myself. 🙂

  47. Natalie says:

  48. Amber says:

    One day I WILL be doing this!!! Your work is amazing lady! 😍

  49. Shae M says:

    This would be an amazing opportunity! Such a GREAT way to gain some self confidence!

  50. Shannon Green says:

    I went into this extremely nervous…but by the time I left I felt like a model rockstar. The VIP hair and makeup treatment was more than I hoped for, and Emily made me feel so comfortable. Her expert posing advice really helped get the pictures I was hoping to achieve. I did a boudoir shoot for my now husband, but would do that or any other type of photo shoot again with her in a heartbeat. I would honestly love to do one more for me than for anyone else next time around. Her use of lighting and color is 👌🏻! You can’t go wrong working with this talented boss babe! 🖤

  51. Brittni Prellwitz says:

    You are Simply Amazing! <3 From your motivation, positive attitude and of course your photos!

  58. Michelle says:

    I’ve loved watching your work! You are so talented and I hope some day I can do this type of photo shoot!

  59. Kristin Peters says:

    Em – you are such an amazing and talented photographer and person.

    I’m always in awe whenever you post your latest photos.

    I’m so proud that you, “Little Emily from Marion/Caroline, WI,” dared to quit your day job and followed your dreams, cuz just look at you now!! You are unstoppable and seriously one of the best photographers I’ve ever seen!!


  60. Brittneie says:

  64. Mickayla says:

    I’m going to be so jealous of whoever wins! Emily is the most amazing photographer I’ve ever worked with!

  65. Kayla W says:

    Your words are SO empowering.
    I’ve always struggled with loving myself inside and out. I get so frustrated with myself because I see all other people of all sizes and think how beautiful they are and their bodies but then can’t always see myself in the same light.
    Whoever wins your giveaway will be so incredibly lucky because I’m sure it will build confidence and bring so many smiles.
    I would be blessed to be chosen but even if I’m not – to any person that is, I feel so thrilled for them.

  66. Brooke-Lyn says:

    I’m beyond obsessed with this page. 😍

  67. Alexus says:

    You are so inspiring, I love that you are so honest in everything you do!

  68. Mandy McLaughlin says:

    You’re such an empowering and talented boss babe! And what an amazing giveaway! Whoever wins will be a very lucky girl!!

  69. Haley says:

    I really have been wanting to do this but I’ve been nervous about how to pose and that It would look awkward and wouldn’t look nice! After following you on social media, my mind has done a 180, I’m confident that I’m ready to do this!

  70. Dana Mohn says:

    Girl, even if I don’t win I’m going to have to save up some money to do this. Life goals!

  71. Lyric says:

    Someone once told me that having a boudoir shoot is a “transformative” experience…and they could not be more right.

  72. I was so self conscious growing up. Worried about what people would think or how they would react. But now as a business owner I am coming out of my shell and saying to the world here I am love me or hate me. I think boudoir is breaking out of the shell and learning to love myself.

  73. Tifani Bratton Wesner says:

    After five kids and losing the baby weight, I so want to do this!

  74. Calie Gihl says:

    I’ve been following your work for several years. I have to say, talent aside, it is clear that you really are all about empowering women! That is truly amazing and I can’t wait to meet you and have you be part of our engagement photos and your team be a part of our special day <3

  75. Kailene Young says:

  96. Morgan says:

    I had a boudoir session done a few years ago for my then to-be husband. I honestly don’t know if the experience was more of a gift to him or myself! I am now a mom and would love to do a boudoir session to highlight the amazing changes to my body!
