With much discussion, we have decided to close Lace in Light. We are so grateful for all of the photographers that have contributed to LiL over the years. You have provided us with constant inspiration and helped us personally grow with our own craft of photography.
If you are wondering why, this paragraph is for you! First and foremost our personal evolution has taken us in a different direction. While boudoir and female portrait work will always be a passion, our main focus has shifted into growing our photo company. While it could be possible to continue to run this on the side, our hearts are just not there anymore. We are simply not fans of half ass-ing anything we put our hands on. We hope you understand!
What will happen to Lace in Light now? We will leave the website up to help archive this time period of photography. We hope Lace in Light will continue to motivate photographers, inspire client's, and provide educational tips for this industry. If you have submitted to us and we said yes, please feel free to submit elsewhere. As of today, we will no longer be updating this site.

I can understand why a lot of women are a little intimidated by the boudoir experience process. The notion of taking it all off in front of a stranger's camera is daunting. However, I can assure you that it is business as usual for the photographer. You won't shock them with "all this" (generally what women say while gesturing to a particular section of their bodies). Photographers know how to pose you to perfection and will use strategic lighting to ensure that you look your best. I would like to offer a round of applause to the badass ladies who are bold enough to conquer a boudoir shoot.
Jessica Hill of Peekaboo Portland Boudoir is one of those experts. The cool colors photograph magnificently creating an alluring composition. Her talent for this type of photography is exceptional!
From the Photographer | I love the human form, it's angles, edges and curves and have found an artistic and empowering art by photographing boudoir. My studio, Peekaboo Portland, is now in it's 8th year and have photographed over 300 boudoir sessions in the Portland metro area. We celebrate women and love to honor their bodies, beauty and brains with boudoir photography. Miss W contacted us to photograph her for her man's b-day gift and surprised him with a print collection on his birthday. She wanted an edgy but classy look and chose the Sentinel hotel for a timeless yet seductive on location shoot.
