Crystal Thompson – Beyond Boudoir Studio

Congratulations to Crystal Thompson from Beyond Boudoir Studio based in Mims, Florida

Marietta selected this image because it “beautifully captures the sensual and inviting atmosphere of a male subject lying down suggestively in his private moment of bliss on a plush velvet blue sofa. The soft natural light gently accentuates the subject’s curves and muscles, creating a seductive and intimate ambiance. The composition skillfully balances the subject’s masculinity and vulnerability, drawing the viewer into the scene and evoking a sense of intimacy and connection. Overall, the photograph showcases the photographer’s technical and artistic expertise and it drew me in. Great Job!”

Maria Turner – Black Diamond Boudoir

1st runner up is Maria Turner of Black Diamond Boudoir based in Houston, TX.

Marietta selected this image because “it it’s crisp lines and color choices alongside a variety of textures serves as. the perfect backdrop to the simplicity of an exquisitely lit subject in simple white.”


Amanda Mundy – Lovers Of Love Boudoir

2nd runner up is Amanda Mundy of Lovers Of Love Boudoir.

Marietta’s comments on this image “While I am not usually into thematic boudoir shoots with considerable props; this theme was masterfully executed with props to match that add to the feel and sensuality of the moment. The posing and composition were also done very well and all technical aspects were fantastic.”
