Meet Katya Monroe

As a young girl growing up in Russia, I had the opportunity to attend many operas and ballets, where I formed a deep connection to the human form and movement. This early curiosity led me to pursue an education in art history where I studied in London and Rome, furthering my deep appreciation for masterful compositions and human body shape. Before long, I began expressing my conceptual ideas and emotions by becoming and amateur painter, and professional dancer. 

Most recently, I have taken an interest in photography. What began with sensual photography sessions with my girlfriends, has developed into a deep, penetrating practice of capturing the mood, emotion and sensuality of my subjects. A well planned and coordinated boudoir session is both fulfilling and rewarding for me as an artist; and an empowering and confidence-building experience for my clients.

Aside from numerous workshops, I have studied Photography at Parsons School of Design in New York.


My Boudoir Photography Philosophy and Mission

I believe boudoir photography is for everybody, and every body type! A well planned and orchestrated boudoir session involving hair, makeup, and then, some movement coaching, usually leads to a profound experience, and always results in stunning photos that inspire strength and confidence in my subject’s.  Your unique style and femininity will radiate…just don’t melt my camera!

Whether on location or in the studio, my main goal is to provide a relaxed and welcoming environment where you feel safe and protected. I promise you will leave your boudoir shoot feeling positive and self-assured, taking with you happy memories of this positive experience…and, of course, some stunning photos!  

Why Hire Me for Your Boudoir Shoot

Together, we will select a few settings that serve you best.  Think, a session in a race car, on a motorcycle, with a horse or, on a beach with soft intimate sunset lighting.  With a wide range of outdoor resources, as well as indoor studio access, your choice of venue will help to illuminate your unique personality.

As your boudoir photographer, I’ll use my training as a professional dancer to help you tap into your inner beauty by first, loosening you up a bit, and then, helping you access your most intimate inner self.  I don’t expect you to be a professional model…but, you will move!  

Please feel free to contact me any time to brainstorm and discuss ideas that you may have regarding your own unique boudoir session.  I look forward to hearing from you!!
