My name is Molly Ashlie and I am the owner, operator, photographer, and self-love advocate behind Moss Photography. I am a strong believer that we are all beautiful no matter our size, shape, or age. I am on a mission to empower everyone to love their bodies just the way they are. To fully embrace themselves and celebrate their uniqueness! We are all different - and that is what makes each and every one of us beautiful in our own individual way.
We can't find happiness or perfection in the unrealistic beauty standard we are all told to hold ourselves to. Losing those extra ten pounds won't make you magically love yourself: loving ourselves is a commitment we need to make in this moment! Because you are perfect just the way you are - and I want to help show you!
Light & Love, Molly
Relax - you're in good hands, babe!
It's totally normal to feel pre-shoot jitters and nerves. It can be intimidating doing this type of session for your first time. But don't worry - I've worked with hundreds of babes and we will ensure that you feel entirely comfortable, safe, and sexy during your session!
Just kick back and relax - when it comes to your hair, makeup, posing... I got you! All you need to do is show up for your session, and I will take care of the rest!
What your session fee includes
Professional Hair & Makeup: Your boudoir session includes professional hair and makeup to make sure you are completely photo ready! When you arrive at the studio my makeup artist will sit you down and pamper you - creating the perfect look for your session.
Posing - Down to Your Fingertips: Worried that you won't know what to do? Don't fear - I will help you pose right down to your fingertips. I will even help you relax your expression if needed. I'm with ya every step of the way!
Outfit Selection / General Tips & Tricks!: Once you book, I will help you choose your outfits if you are unsure. Bring everything you're thinking of into your session and we will go through it all together! I am always available to answer any questions you may have before your session. Not sure of something? Pick my brain! I am here to help :)
Each session includes a complimentary meet & greet before you book!
Still got questions, and/or nerves? I am happy (and prefer!) to meet with each prospective client before they book so that we can go over any questions you may have, and plan your dream boudoir session! As you can see there's nothing to worry about! I will be with you every step of the way to help guide you and address any of your concerns. You're in good hands - I can't wait to work with you!
Choosing your session location
There are 4 main options for choosing where you want your boudoir experience to be!
- My in-home studio. I have lovingly converted the spare bedroom in my house to be an intimate boudoir sanctuary! Velvet tufted headboard, satin sheets, luxuriously painted walls, and more gold mirrors than you can count (almost). This is the most common place for my sessions to occur and is available for every client.
- Outdoors. Want to bare it all outside in the wilderness? I ADORE outdoor sessions and have a couple private locations for us to venture to. If you are more daring and not too worried about your privacy, we can also take your boudoir session to the oceanside. I have yet to secure a 100% private beach front location - but private forested options are available.
- AirBNB or a Hotel. Want something a little different from my studio? Rent us an AirBNB and turn your boudoir session into a staycation!
- Your house! Got a nice pad that you are proud of? I do house calls!
Your Boudoir session - from start to finish
1. Preparing for your session
PLANNING YOUR OUTFITS
We recommend bringing wardrobe options that showcase all different aspects of your personality. Soft, edgy, girl-next-door. Make sure what you bring makes you feel sexy, confident, and most importantly: fits you right! If it's too small it can create unflattering lines and bulges that distract from your beautiful shape!
If you're at a loss for what to wear, we suggest taking a look through Pinterest for inspiration.
Feel free to snap some photos of your favourite outfits and send them our way! We are happy to help in the decision process!
"HOW MANY OUTFITS SHOULD I WEAR?"
How many outfits you wear is totally up to you!
We recommend choosing your total amount of outfits based on what package you intend to purchase (see below for more on purchasing your photos after your session).
1-2 Outfits for Collection 3.
2-3 For Collection 2.
3-5 For Collection 1.
Keep in mind that implied nude or just wearing a sheet counts as an outfit. :)
DO'S & DONT'S BEFORE YOUR SESSION
Do: Relax, allow yourself time to fully indulge in the experience.
Don't: Book an important appointment soon after your session.
Do: Pamper yourself and relax through bubble baths, manicures, pedicures, etc.
Don't: Schedule a body altering treatment too soon before your session. Including: spray tans, cupping, lazer hair removal, waxing, etc.
You're probably going to have nerves and anxiety before your session - and that's totally normal. Now is a great time to schedule in some extra self-care and love. The week leading up to your session make time to listen to your body and indulge in acts of self-love - whatever that looks like to you. The more in tune and in touch you are with your body before your shoot, the less nervous you will be the day of.
Remember to be gentle with yourself - this is an intimidating and vulnerable experience and it's okay to be nervous.
Remember that you're in good hands - you got this!
2. Your Session
YOUR SESSION TIMELINE:
60-90 Minutes for Hair & Makeup
60-90 Minutes for your session
After your hair and makeup, and before we get to creating your empowering images, we will sit down and go through your outfits, and any poses that you had in mind that you just need to do! This will be a great time for us to check in, see how you're doing, have some tea or bubbly, and get ready to rock your session out of this world!
3. What to expect after your session
PHOTO REVEAL APPOINTMENT
After we wrap up your session we will schedule a second appointment for about 1-2 weeks away for you to come back to the studio and see your fabulous photos!

YOUR HAPPINESS IS MY SUCCESS
