We are happy to announce the April AIBP Monthly Choice Image Competition sponsored by UAF Photo Lab.  Our guest judge for April is Tanya Smith.

As Canada’s Premier women’s portrait photographer since 2011, Tanya fell in love with the power of  boudoir to change the way a woman feels about herself.

With her keen eye for details combined with her signature Flow Posing, Tanya creates a distinctive, instantly recognizable style signature.

As a newly single mom struggling to make profit in her boudoir photography, Tanya merged her expertise from corporate banking and sales to revolutionize her business. This combination of artistry and business flair gave birth to The Growth Method, a simple strategic system which enabled her to grow her studio to over $400k in sales in 1 year.

Since 2017, Tanya has been sharing her unique approach, to mentor and coach boudoir and portrait photographers to create impact and income. 

Her online programs have enabled hundreds of photographers worldwide, (in every genre), to grow, and scale a successful business on their own terms. Learn more about Profitable Portraits.

And the Monthly Choice Winner is…..

Traci Shadden – Beauty In Boudoir

Congratulations to Traci Shadden from Beauty In Boudoir based in St. Louis.

Tanya select this image “Cuz I’m a sucker for a classic boudoir pose. This is executed perfectly here. Nice job on the black and white as well, it enhances the light falling on the subject’s curves”

Kristina Daugherty – KJBoudoir

1st runner up goes to Kristina Daugherty of  KJBoudoir based in Chesterfield, VA.

Tanya selected this image as 2nd place because it’s “such a good tushie shot. Love the setting as well as the use of greens in the foreground- makes it feel like a caught moment. Love the light here as well.”

Maria Turner – Black Diamond Boudoir

3rd place goes to Maria Turner from Black Diamond Boudoir based in Houston.

Tanya’s thoughts on this image “A great couple shot and the back wall set is stunning and striking. Love how it looks like they’ve come back from a formal event and are in a state of undress- his suit is undone, she is down to her lingerie. Great capture here”

This month Tanya selected 3 honorable mentions listed in no particular order below.

Heather Glenn – Elysian Bloom Boudoir

Comments: “Great detail shot here, almost bordering on erotic. light and shadows are working well, and the delicate lingerie here works beautifully.

Heather Glenn – Elysian Bloom Boudoir

Comments: “A fun take on the shower set and tushie shot. The additional lights/candles add to what would otherwise be a simple set.”

Jessica Ragan – Allure and Lace Boudoir

Comments: “The stars in this shot are the set and outfit. Wow. The pose is simple and elegant, and the light is perfect.”
