Simple is better
from your session with Bare
She empowers women to feel strong, beautiful, and makes you feel invincible. I booked a session with Elizabeth and she was so professional, she made me feel comfortable and not awkward, and she executes her shoots flawlessly with insane attention to detail. She is incredibly talented and I highly recommend to book with her!
Bare by Elizabeth
From the moment I walked in to my session I felt like I was meeting old friends. I had already spoken with Elizabeth on the phone a couple of times, chatted via email about the details of my session, and she even helped me choose the perfect wardrobe! Victoria listened to exactly what I wanted for my hair and makeup and made me look and feel 1000x better than I even imagined. I was literally blown away when she handed me that mirror to check myself out! And during my portrait session [with Elizabeth] I felt completely at ease and comfortable. I left there that day feeling so empowered and beautiful. It was an experience of a lifetime, and one that I'll recommend to all of my friends for sure!
Bare by Elizabeth
“I booked my boudoir session with Elizabeth because I wanted a special memento to give my wife before our wedding anniversary. Even though I booked with a present for my spouse in mind, my boudoir photo session with Elizabeth is easily one of my favorite gifts I’ve ever given to myself. As a woman, having a safe space to freely celebrate my femininity was an incredible experience. The combination of hair, makeup, and Elizabeth’s consultation on my choice for wardrobe made me feel at my best and totally prepared to be in front of the lens. Elizabeth guided me through the session seamlessly with knowledge and ease, which made the entire experience comfortable and fun. The photos from my boudoir session turned out beautifully - Elizabeth’s eye for intimate portrait photography is truly magical. I’ll treasure these photos forever.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Our answer for this question is and will always be YES. For one, nobody wants to be stressing about getting their hair just right or the wing on their eyeliner perfectly even on each side while getting ready for a photo session. Let someone else handle it for you. And for two, 10x out of 10 professional makeup shows up better on camera than if you did it at home. EVEN if you're going for a natural, no-makeup makeup look. Not to mention, we will only put you with an artist we trust and KNOW will do a fabulous job. Just trust us.
While we are not going to tell you NO, based on personal experience Elizabeth definitely prefers to work one on one with clients, simply because sometimes an ‘audience’ can make you feel more self conscious. If you must bring someone for moral support, we limit it to one person.
We love to and often do our shoots at Carr Mansion, located in Galveston, TX. Carr has a beautiful, mid-century modern aesthetic that lends perfectly to Elizabeth's style of photography and we urge you to check it out for yourself, here. Bonus? Costs associated with renting this location are taken care of by us. However, if you'd like to opt for a different location that is certainly OK and welcomed! Clients are responsible for any fees associated with alternate locations, including parking.
The answer to this question is while yes we CAN, no we will NOT. You are beautiful and worthy just the way you are, and we refuse to alter any part of your body that is part of who you are. This means we will not alter your body size, or make you look "thinner", we will not alter the size of your hips or your breasts or your jawline or arms. We will not edit out things that are a permanent part of you. However with that being said, we all have insecurities and things we don't love as much as other parts of ourselves - so we will put our focus on the things you DO love, and highlight and accentuate those areas, while using lighting and posing to take focus away from the areas you don't love as much :)
Due to the custom nature of photography, the session fees and any products ordered are non-refundable under all circumstances. You have final say on the retouching and any custom album design and nothing goes to print without your approval.
