You are Amazing


you are spirited + strong + glorious + soulful

I think every woman has days where she forgets how beautiful, strong, and amazing her body is. In today’s world it is so easy to compare yourself to others and lose what makes each of us unique and special.
This experience slowly made those insecurities fall away. I left feeling empowered and proud of myself.

See your portraits the same day

See your portraits the same day


One epic day of self-care and self-celebration

You'll have an empowering photo shoot in the morning, see your beautiful portraits in the afternoon, and can take home printed photographs that same evening.  It all takes place in one incredible, magical day. 

After the session, I felt so empowered! My posture was proud, I met people’s eyes, I felt like a powerful whole person!

Hi there! I'm Alyssa, a Minneapolis boudoir photographer and the artist behind Illuminate Boudoir.  I'm an avid coffee drinker, a proud feminist, and a lover of weekend hiking adventures. I got my start doing professional photography in college, when it was my job during the summers. Seven years later, my photography business is my full-time job and I'm more passionate about it than ever. 

I started creating boudoir portraits because I believe that our world needs a change. We need to accept and love our bodies as the beautiful and strong entities that they are - and even more so, we need to see and love ourselves for the glorious, amazing beings that we are. We are soulful and authentic and absolutely stunning.

I  work with women to create elegant, artful portraits that celebrate their body and spirit. I would love to talk with you about how we can create some amazing art together.
