You know how you meet someone and you feel like you’ve known them forever? It was like that when Miss S arrived at the studio for her session. She just fit right in the craziness that can be Mercedes and I during sessions. As she sat down to start the glamming process, she lets me know that she didn’t have time to stop for one of her props. So, naturally, I ran out and got it for her because it needed to happen!
She brought some amazing outfits for her session, including a “cold shoulder” body suit, a long sleeve lace body suit that brought some serious drama, a fabulous silk bathrobe, and dipped into the client wardrobe for the halter body suit and, a client favorite, my red robe!
We started in the bedroom set, using the natural light that comes through the windows. Then, breaking from the normal order, we moved to the couch so Mercedes could give us a hand with lighting. Back to the bedroom then onto the floor for some fun shots! Without further ado, the images from the gorgeous Miss S!

I am SO excited to have my own shooting space again so we are launching the Ambassador Program!
What is an boudie ambassador? Someone who receives sessions in exchange for helping spread the word about me & my business! The main point behind becoming a boudoir photographer was, and still is, to remind women that they are beautiful and sexy in their own ways. Spreading that message is at the core of this program as it gives us a real chance to show several different ways by having a session on location, another in studio, and theming one based on a holiday or something else (so far we’ve done Star Wars, Harry Potter, and a few more).
What YOU get:
- 3 boudoir sessions, one on location, one in studio, one themed
- 1 portrait session, on location
- Earn credits toward additional sessions & goodies through referrals
What is required:
- At least 18
- Fun loving & at least a little adventurous
- Sign a full model release & contract
- Local to the Jacksonville, NC area
- Photographer exclusivity while in the program
What is a bonus:
- Come to vendor events and speak to potential clients about your own experience in front of my camera
- Posting your photos on social media
- Liking food enough to be a foodie boudie 😉
Don’t have modeling experience? That’s TOTALLY fine! I will be helping you pick out outfits and posing you head to toe.
Have some areas that you see as “flawed”? EVERYONE does! My boudies & models alike have come to me with areas they’d like to minimize and that’s totally something we can do with wardrobe & posing.
Can’t sign a model release due to your job or significant other? This may not be the program for you but I’d still love a chance to work with you, keeping your images private 😉

This is a session that I have had on my photography bucket list for a long time and I’m ecstatic it finally all came together the way I wanted! We started hair & make up at noon, which seems early until you consider the ever amazing Mercedes was doing an 18th century hair style on our model in addition to make up. At 3:30, we headed out to Tryon Palace in New Bern. The home of the last Royal Governor, the Palace has gorgeous gardens you may recognize from Mercedes’ maternity session back in August. We were given a large room to get ready for the session, which we used to get Miss A in her first outfit including a skin tone body suit for easy outfit changes later. Then, we walked across the street and started with photos in the Stable Office. After, we headed into the gardens and spent most of the rest of the session *at* the Palace there, with a final stop in front of the Palace itself.
After our time at the Palace ended, we decided to continue shooting as the light was optimal and took to the streets of New Bern with Miss A in a sheer robe with the body suit underneath (although you couldn’t see it from a distance!). We didn’t venture far, but we’re all so happy we took the time to do this as they are some pretty gorgeous shots!

As you look through the photos, can you spot what caused me to not only work and volunteer at the Palace but also meet Mercedes in the first place?!
Boudoir by Ashley Rescott Photography
You may remember the steamy couples beach boudoir session I posted back in August. The beginning of March, I was so excited to work with them again, this time in my temporary studio set up in my home! This may come as a huge surprise considering just how steamy their last session was, but they are now expecting a precious bundle of joy and wanted to celebrate with another boudoir session! This time, Mrs M got the full hair & make up experience, courtesy of Mercedes. Sam was on hand to help with lighting, removing rose thorns, and throwing petals as needed!
The studio was definitely filled with laughter as we played with not only tacos, strawberries, and roses, but also my angel wings and general ridiculousness.
Full credit to Mr M, he is always up for some fun, as you’ll see in some of the photos below! Warning: some images may be NSFW
