Welcome to The HLB Studio Blog! I’m Alicia. Thank you for following along on my journey to empower women and inspire self-confidence through boudoir. I’ve been a wedding photographer for 8 years (check out Happy Little Life Photography) and started down this path toward boudoir about 4 years ago. I recently changed my business name (formerly Happy Little Boudoir), updated my website and added this blog! I’m so excited to see what is next on this journey!
I will be using this space to highlight the boudoir experience as told from my client’s perspective. It’s one thing to hear it from me about how I think every woman should have this experience for themselves, but it’s another thing to hear it from my clients. If you are reading this, I hope you will come back periodically to see stories from other women and learn more about how a boudoir experience with The HLB Studio has impacted them. You may also see some studio and business posts here and there. And if you identify as female and have Facebook, I’d love for you to join my VIP Facebook group – exclusively for those that are interested in learning more about boudoir, seeing more of my work and hanging out with a group of badass women!

Kicking us off for this very first blog post is a sweet friend who traveled all the way from New Jersey for her session last year.
What made you choose The HLB Studio for your boudoir experience?
I loved how the pictures were taken, the backgrounds, etc. I did a virtual session during COVID and I loved it! I knew Alicia would take good care of me, making me feel relaxed during the whole process!
How were you feeling going into the experience?
I was a little nervous but was also equally excited. Alicia explained everything perfectly walking me through the entire process so I knew what to expect. I felt prepared. I arrived and was welcomed with a warm greeting, a place to put my things, a drink to relax, snacks, and all the fun pampering began!
How do you feel now that you’ve had this experience with The HLB Studio?
I am so so happy that I chose to do this! I look at some of these pictures and can’t believe that it is me! I did it for myself and so that I can look back at them. I already feel proud when I see them so I can only imagine how I’ll feel in 20 years when I look at them. I would love to do it again!!
What is one thing that you will take away/take with you from this experience?
There’s a few things I’ll take away! First a confident, proud and sexy side was brought out during the session that I can’t truly explain. But it’s a side that I’m happy Alicia found. Let alone the pictures in a beautifully made book to remind me of that side if I forget.
