My latest project was an inspiration by something I love - soaker tubs! I ran a contest on Twitter and Instagram for a duo escort photoshoot in Toronto, and two lucky ladies won - Lana Woodford and La Femme Isobel. I was really excited to shoot with them at a Toronto hotel with gorgeous city views and floor to ceiling windows.
These two lovely ladies were very comfortable with each other and a pleasure to photograph! Read on to get to know them:
In Isobel's own words:
"More than just a pretty face, I’m the girlfriend you always wanted to be with: intelligent, funny, sensual, and kind. I’m an open book and I want to connect with you, learn from you, and understand what drives you wild".
In Lana's own words:
"I have now spent a few wonderful years as a companion, and enjoy creating meaningful and intimate connections with those I meet. Having grown up all over the world, I have experienced a wide variety of cultural influences, and have a very special appreciation for what makes people unique"
A woman's body is beautiful. But unless you are a trained model or a dancer posing for your boudoir photoshoot could seem problematic. You might feel that you are stiff, or think you are awkward in front of the camera. The truth is, camera angles and body positioning could improve your poses tremendously. It can hide the body parts you don't like, accentuate those you are in love with, and make you look longer, slimmer, and sexier!
My role as your photographer is to pay very close attention to details and make sure I make you look your best by coaching you to move your body (from head to toe) in a way that would flatter you and make you look fantastic. The funniest thing is, the more awkward it feels for you, the better it looks on camera!
Let's take a look at the above example - how different a person can look within minutes of taking a photograph and simply by changing the body position, even the angle the photo was taken from is the same. Always have your weight on the hip AWAY from camera, elongate the neck and leg closest to camera, point your toes to make your legs look longer and slimmer, and keep your arm away from your body and avoid pushing it against yourself, which will immediately make it look smaller. Never push your hips forward if you want your belly to look proportional.
The images above illustrate a boudoir posing concept called The S Curve. Even poses that are done facing the camera head on (or straight) have the potential to look gorgeous if you are creating an S shape with your body by arching your back, leaning your head to same side as your booty, and placing your arms in a way that show your waist line or back arch.
Every body shape CAN BE photographed beautifully with simple coaching and attention to detail. Trust Elusive Imagery with your Toronto boudoir photography. The best way to achieve the look you are going for is to come up with a pose you'd like to recreate and work from there, making it yours with me guiding your body for a photograph, with the magic of light and proper body positioning. It will feel awkwa
I had the pleasure to photograph the beautiful ladies at Vaughan Spa, as well as their newly renovated facilities. It's a gorgeous space with amazing finishes. AN UPSCALE, FULLY LICENSED BODY RUB PARLOUR LOCATED IN THE CENTRAL GREATER TORONTO AREA.
Ashley was my muse for this Toronto boudoir photoshoot. The location chosen by her was warm and welcoming, just like Ashley herself, and was an inspiration for this photo set. Killer curves and blonde bombshell looks... From Ashley:
"Maturity has brought me an understanding of the charms of both (gentle)men and women. It’s also wonderful to know couples who share a sense of exploration within their connection, and I am respectful of boundaries for everyone’s comfort and enjoyment, regardless of experience.
If you’ve ever dreamed about spending time with two lovely women, I have some charming friends! Allow me to introduce you…"

Choosing a “backdrop” for your boudoir/escort/fetish photoshoot is just as important as your wardrobe for the day. It must go well with your individual style, convey a feeling unique to your brand, and fit harmoniously with your look. It could be at your incall, a hotel, an Airbnb, a professional photography studio, a dungeon, a swimming pool, a rented car or even a boat. Beautiful cafes, lounges, parks, the beach, even downtown Toronto business central streets could be fantastic backdrops. A prospective client wants to get to know you and for them to keep coming back to you and book longer sessions, it would be very beneficial to you to have images that portray you in different situations beyond the bedroom.
INDOOR BOUDOIR STYLE STUDIOS
The following are my top choices for indoor photography studios in Toronto that would be fantastic for a boudoir style photoshoot. Many rent by the hour, so the investment is smaller than a hotel.
AIRBNB and TORONTO AREA HOTELS
There are plenty of choices when it comes to booking an Airbnb or hotel for your photoshoot. It’s important to note that not every host and hotel are comfortable with a photoshoot at their establishment, so it’s better to go with an Airbnb that’s clearly a commercial unit, or a big chain hotel to minimize risk.
TORONTO LUXURY HOTELS
Please keep in mind: Do not book Bisha Hotel or other boutique hotels.
The Hazelton Hotel
One King West
Don’t underestimate the value of having a photoshoot at your incall if you have one. Not only would your client feel comfortable meeting you there as you are advertising your experience to them as it is, all your wardrobe and props are there as well, which will help making your bodouir/fetish photoshoot more exciting.
If your goal is to book longer escort sessions with repeat clients (isn’t this everyone’s goal, okay maybe most of you), it’s up to you to plant the seed in your prospective client’s mind that you are an escort in every sense of the way. You provide escort services to dinners, shows, overnights, weekends away and long vacations. To do that you need photos that show you wearing appropriate clothing, taken in appropriate settings. All your photographs shouldn’t be just you in lingerie.
The possibilities are endless. Outdoor photoshoots can be at all hours of the day, from morning and evening (golden hour), to mid-day and after sunset (with city lights as your backdrop – we could really get creative here).
This is easy – your incall or a dungeon are your best bet. Below is a list of rental dungeons in Toronto I have found that would be perfect for a photoshoot:
I hope this blog is helpful for you. This list is not complete, if you know if a space or another resource for potential spots for photography, please send it my way and I will update the blog.
Let’s get creative together!
From mouth soaping, to punishment, to sensory deprivation, to dominance and submission, to everything in between. A fetish studio photoshoot with Toronto headmistress Shahrazad and Sophie was very educational and enlightening. The goal for this photoshoot was to create dramatic kinky photography that would help the viewer to experience what it would be like to be dominated by headmistress Shahrazad, and to showcase the many services offered by The Ritual Chamber - a dungeon in Toronto.
I had the pleasure to work with the phenomenal Toronto companion Lelo during a fetish photoshoot in Toronto. Thank you for teaching me the ropes (pun intended) of the world of kink and bdsm.
In Lelo's own words:
"Some have described me as unsuspecting, engaging and sensual. I like to explore every facet of our sexuality, from the intimate to the intense. I am playful, erotic, and ready to indulge in the fantasy that speaks most vividly to you.
Building on-going rapport with clients through touch, laughter, and libertine experiences is my focus. I do not follow a set of guidelines for my sessions, and you will find that every experience with me is like a fingerprint. Leaving an enduring impression on you that will linger for days.
Cozy cuddle sessions, indulgent kink scenes, resplendent intimate encounters, are just some of what I offer. Leave expectations at the door, and come play".

Vivienne is a fiery redhead - an independent escort companion I had the pleasure to work with during a boudoir photoshoot in Toronto. A true GFE, she is an artistic beauty with a warm demeanor, an intellectual, an excellent conversationalist and an active listener. As a happily retired academic, she is a sensuous, enthusiastic independent escort and companion for the modern gentleman and the adventurous couple. She was an absolute delight to collaborate with for my portfolio.
From Vivienne herself:
As a curious soul, nothing excites me more than the unknown. I live my life traveling far and wide, excited to make lasting connections that inspire deep friendships. The anticipation, the excitement…I can’t help but show it in my eyes, and in my smile as we embrace.
I’m Vivienne Lawrence, your sultry, enigmatic heart-for-hire. I am based in Toronto, Canada for those who crave an authentic companion with mischievous inclinations.
Those who know me best often describe me as an artistic beauty with a warm demeanor, an intellectual, an excellent conversationalist and an active listener. University educated and cultured, yet unpretentious, and surprising mature for my age (mid-twenties). As a selective independent escort and companion based in Toronto, I am well-reviewed, discreet, and utterly enchanting.
I pair well with accomplished suitors who like myself enjoy the simple pleasures in life, such as gallery visits, relaxing spa day trips, clock-free calming nature walks and salacious adventures behind closed doors. Weather we're sharing a delicious meal at a world class restaurant or basking in the tender warmth of our tousled bed, time with me is bound to be unforgettable.
The most enthralling romances begin as a mystery. I can’t wait to see how ours enfolds…

Planning a boudoir/fetish photo shoot is highly exciting and possibly even nerve racking. A lot of thought must be put into deciding on an overall theme. Fresh images are a great way to keep your clients interested in your escort/webcam/massage persona. But simply having fresh images is not enough.

Your regulars keep coming back because of who YOU are. Sure, they like a pretty package but they really enjoy how you make them FEEL.
