I grew up as a small town Wisconsin girl with big dreams of owning my own photography studio. I was the youngest of four. My dad was a business owner and mom a nurse. I worked tirelessly with my aunt's photography business starting at the ripe age of 8 pushing buttons in the darkroom. (I called it slave labor at the time because I was always with her working) I loved learning everything having to do with photography and made a great assistant, but when it was time to choose a career path, I chose xray. (I had no idea boudoir photography existed or I would've jumped right in) Let's be honest.. Our families usually push us in a safe direction regarding careers and schooling. Although my chosen x-ray career felt safe, I left the comforts of my 9-5 to open Demi’s Doors. Since I wanted to do something that I loved; Shopping, decorating, photography, and helping women love themselves seemed like the perfect career that I always dreamed of! Learning about boudoir Photography, after booking a photo shoot for myself, is what changed my entire direction. I literally put the brakes on my x-ray career and started building my portfolio as soon as I learned that so many women would benefit from opening Demi Girl. Boudoir photography has become my passion and I love what I do!
Meet Lauren! Once a pageant girl in Mississippi, Lauren made her way to Chicago with a BA in Theatre fifteen years ago to pursue an acting career. Although makeup was something she enjoyed and an avenue she could make extra money "on the side" she always thought of it as a secondary talent. Soon, when she got more requests for her makeup talents than her theatrical skills, Lauren realized where her career path was taking her. Now, a certified Makeup Artist, she continues to hone her skills as an artist by continued education and painting any face she can get her hands on. From weddings, events, TV, film, theatrical, editorial and corrective makeup, Lauren's passion in her field leads her strength in all facets of makeup application. Lauren's hair and makeup company is currently booking up for 2017 quickly! You can book their services for your event by contacting her through their website www.weonlydopretty.com. We're so happy to have Lauren on our team!

Let a glamour photshoot in a boudoir setting empower you with a new sense of self-confidence...“Boudoir” is a French word used to describe a woman’s dressing room or private dressing quarters. At its simplest, boudoir photography is a style that captures a woman in a state of dress or undressing.
Booking a boudoir photo shoot can be extremely intimidating for many women. We all face self-doubt and think, “Will I look good posing in lingerie?" Or "will I be comfortable and have fun with this?" The truth is, if your booking with a trusted boudoir studio like Demi Girl, all reasonable doubts and apprehensions can thankfully be put aside. We have an all female staff and focus on making every woman’s experience classy, comfortable and fun!
Demi Girl Photography specializes in creating the ultimate boudoir photoshoot experience by making our clients feel safe and secure. We inspire confidence that shines through; reminding you that beauty is individual and unique. It’s not just for the times in your life when you are young or when your skin is glowing. It’s not just for the weeks after you complete your first marathon or when your summer tan is the perfect shade of gold.

We typically like our clients to call the studio for a pre-consultation so we can talk and see that we are a good fit and we will deliver what your looking for! A phone call can subside any nerves before the actual shoot day by speaking with us and knowing you are in good hands. Ask us anything! Believe us when we say no question is silly in our eyes. We want each of our clients to put their guard down and know we are not here to judge but to help you set up a memorable and empowering day that is all about you! At our clients' request, we will invite you to the studio before the shoot to view more pricing and album options.
Once you arrive to the studio, we have parking for our clients in the back! As soon as you walk through our doors with your bags of lingerie and last minute purchases, we pull everything out and decide what will look best in each available shooting area. We have 8 different shooting sets to customize your photos! Once we figure out your chosen areas and outfits, we will help you relax with hair and make-up while we transform you from an everyday woman to a sexy bombshell!
Once we have you made up and feeling like a million bucks, we have you change into the first look. Everyone is at least a teensy bit nervous to start, but the nerves go away after we show a few beautiful images from the camera’s LCD. It's important for us to show our clients how beautiful they are looking in the photos we’re capturing as we move from room to room. By the end of the session, most of our clients want to keep shooting because they are having so much fun with the experience!
Don’t worry about striking the perfect pose! That’s what we’re here for… We’ve refined this process to help every body type look flattering on camera. There are some poses that will fell awkward or maybe difficult to hold, but it doesn’t show in the photos You may feel like you finished a mini pilates workout by the end, but it makes the final images so sexy! We also encourage our boudoir clients to bring inspiration photos that they love of poses, make up or anything that inspires. We’re happy to accommodate posing and make up requests so don’t be shy!
We have a rental closet full of fun jewelry, shoes, stockings, and intimate apparel. Don’t worry if you’re missing something from your wardrobe because we can probably help with that!
After your shoot, we will schedule a day for you to come back for your image reveal and purchasing session. This usually lasts about an hour or less. We will help you choose your best images and make the process easy. You will choose the album you'd like your photos printed on that day as well.
Once you've made your album decision, we begin working our magic on your images. Once we're done waving our magic wand, we will upload the album spreads to a private gallery, in the order they will print, for you to view and finalize before we send it to print. Once the look of the album is refined and approved, it will be waiting for you at the studio within approximately two weeks wrapped in boutique paper and a ribbon.
Even if you aren’t quite ready to show it all or prefer to remain clothed for glamour photos, a professional boudoir photoshoot will make you look and feel amazing.

Our lingerie photos, plus size boudoir photography and glamour photoshoots showcase the most beautiful parts of each individual woman we have the honor of guiding.
