"and I said to my body, softly, "I want to be your friend." It took a long breath and replied, "I have been waiting my whole life for this". Nayyirah Waheed
As women, mothers, partners or generally busy ladies we often tend to put other peoples needs before our own. We tend feel that we need to "earn" some time for ourselves, or that we’re not worthy of luxury experiences such as this, but I want you to know something; when you can stand in your power and love yourself, when you allow yourself to feel joy, and appreciation for the wholehearted woman you really are, you will glow from the inside out and THAT is worth everything.
To commemorate your self love journey, I’ve sought out the best of the best Canadian suppliers to provide you with the highest quality, luxury products such as albums, folio boxes and aluminium wall art that are sure to last a lifetime.
The whole team at Boudoir Moments takes your commitment to yourself seriously, and works hard to look after all your needs throughout this special experience.
Shannon Smith recently developed and designed a new studio! I truly feel this is a true reflection of myself as a photographer and woman as well as the luxurious feel provide my clients. Rich, earthy, luxurious and down to earth is what comes to my mind. I hope you love the new studio as much as I do!
I have a full tab all about the studio policies, please feel free to check that out as well!

Same Day Reveal
We do same day reveals, so you do not have to wait for weeks to see your images! After your session I will send you for lunch, during this time I will take about 200-400 images and weed through them meticulously to a final showing gallery of 35-70 Images. I will fully edit 2-3 images and colour correct the rest for you to view. This takes about an 1-1.5 hrs to do, we will agree that you come back after lunch so that we can view your images together!
We will speak about how you are feeling from your session and how to view your images in a body positive way. We will favourite all the images you love, choose the products for your order.
From this point I will take a couple weeks to fully edit all your images that you selected, order the products. It does take a few additional weeks from this point to receive your dream products. Once they arrive I will be in touch so that you can pick them up!

Hi, I’m Leanne Smith. I learned of my passion for makeup and fashion when I started modelling at a young age of 11. I was taught etiquette and how to walk like a lady and grew confidence. Throughout my teen years I advanced in modelling and became more aware of my health and fitness as my body matured. I went back to school and became a personal trainer which was such a rewarding career on so many levels. My passion for self care and looking my best and living my best grew leaps and bounds. My current position is working for an Australian Clean Skincare brand as a Regional Territory Manager. I started Dollhouse Beauty because I wanted to give back to women in as many ways as possible. With my background in beauty, health & wellness and coaching I knew I had the gift of what I have learned over the years to share and I enjoy meeting so many beautiful women along the way. I am a professional makeup artist with 30+ years of experience and an ability to bring out the inner beauty in every women my brushes are so fortunate to grace. I look forward to making you Shine!
