We are pleased to have Tanya Smith judging this week.

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.

Tanya’s thoughts on this image “I always love when I see a genuine smile in a boudoir photo. This is a great classic pose, made fresh with the shooting angle. Love the lighting and having her face turned towards the light.  That smile lights up the whole image for a fun feel.”

1st runner up goes to Hillary West of Hillary West Studios based in Norfolk VA.

Tanya’s comments on this image “The scene is gorgeous, and a mirror shot works well when done right, which this one is!  Great lingerie, flattering pose and love how the ornate from of the mirror is also framing the shot.”

Tanya’s comments on this image. “First of all the lingerie is killer!!  The pose is simple but well executed and universally flattering.  I imagine this is a pose that sells every time!”
