A PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE WITH MELISSA JOY PORTRAITS IS ALL ABOUT...
-Doing something that might make you nervous, but taking that extra leap of faith.
- Appreciating yourself and your body for where you are at now. Even if you haven't quite hit your goal yet.
- Giving yourself permission to celebrate yourself for any reason at all.
- Realizing that you still "got it".
- Doing something a bit extravagant because you really do deserve it!
Our aim is to
Create beautiful portraits that reflect you and your personality
Be Unapologetically Authentic
An Orange County boudoir photography session with us is all about celebrating your unique beauty and femininity. We believe that femininity can not only be soft and graceful, but also fierce and fiery. Intimate women's portraits aren't just about the photos, it’s about celebrating who we are in our own skin with our own unique brand of beauty. Our photography sessions are meant to show you how beautiful you are, ignite that spark of sexiness, and capture timeless images that will be cherished for generations.
Boudoir photography is all about building women up.
We believe that femininity can be not only soft and graceful, but also fierce and fiery.
"I would 100% recommend a boudoir session to everyone. It was something that helped me in so many ways mentally and emotionally."
"It made me proud of my body. It has shown me that even though my body has gone through a drastic change, I am still beautiful even on the outside. I am a mom, but I am also a woman that has more confidence, understanding, purpose and can still be sexy while doing it all."
- Miss D

San Clemente Boudoir and Beyond
This is the FUN part! Your session will take place in either our studio in San Clemente or an alternate location such as your home or an offsite studio if outside the Orange County area. You'll be pampered by our professional hair and makeup stylist and guided through a 60-90 minute photography session. After your shoot, you'll either go home and come back a week later for your image reveal or you'll come back after a 90 minute lunch!
Once you're booked in for a session, you'll receive our preparation magazine and information on our pre-payment plan and bonuses. You'll receive a super helpful lingerie guide, shopping assistance, and you'll pick out a collection that best matches what you like!
After you submit the contact form, we'll reply back within 24 hours to schedule a quick 15-minute call where we'll go over any questions you may have, pick out your session date, and book you in for your shoot!

The Photoshoot Experience
After you're done with hair and makeup, we'll pick out your top outfits and I'll show you every pose as we go! From facial expressions, to hand placement, and even your toes, you'll be guided through posing for the whole session. The session takes approximately 60-90 minutes.
Shortly after you arrive, you'll get the full VIP beauty treatment with one of our best Hair and Makeup artists! You'll chat about your vision for how you want to look for your session, and she'll get to work! I'll be around to chat as I prepare the studio for your shoot. This typically takes around 60-90 minutes.
Image reveal and Ordering appointment
Take a Break
You'll have the option of either a same day reveal or to come back one week later. For the same day reveal, you'll head out somewhere nearby or bring a lunch and hang in the courtyard. There's lots of cute shops nearby as well! While you're out, I'll do a light initial edit on your images. This Usually takes about 1.5 hours. Enjoy the break and come back ready to see your images! *Any additional retouching will be complete before I place your order with my lab.
This is where you'll see your images for the first time! You'll see all of your prepared images in a slideshow, and then your pre-designed album (unless you chose a folio box). You'll get to fully customize it with me! We'll place your order after we finalize the design. 4-6 weeks later we'll meet for you to pickup your order!
