How It Works


Our Services

more about us

Portrait Couture is a  photography studio is dedicated to creating a private, pampering, uniquely transforming experience for every woman who steps through the door of this tranquil, ultra-feminine environment. Boudoir photos and glamour portraits are like a spa day, but you get to keep the results forever. We serve the Sacramento area, including Folsom, Roseville, Rocklin, El Dorado Hills and also travel to the Bay Area for sessions.

Photo session is created specifically for you–from your makeover to your final selection of prints, meticulously handcrafted albums and boutique products.  If your session is intended as a gift for a beloved, we can incorporate things he loves into some of your images, too…

Take this opportunity to explore all sides of your personality–daring, sensual, or alluring.  As you can see from my galleries, the Portrait Couture Experience is for women of all ages, shapes and sizes.

From the moment you step over the threshold of the photography studio, you will be relieved of any external worries.  You may be nervous, excited or self conscious. Know that every woman who has come in felt the same way; they all left exhilarated.  You will, too.

So leave your cares behind and luxuriate in being the center of attention.  From scented candles to your favorite sips and sweets, every detail is already taken care of for you.  The aim of this dream portrait session is to show the beauty you already have but cannot see yourself.  I can see it; let go and let me show you…xo


Boudoir photos today are not like they were in the 90′s–cheesy, quasi sexual and mostly taken by male photographers. Contemporary female photographers have brought boudoir photos back with a feminine, sensual twist, and I am proud to be one of them.  A boudoir photos are an opportunity to explore all sides of yourself–alluring, sexy, daring, cheeky and mysterious.  Think heels, big hair, 50 Shades of Grey, Victoria’s Secret, Maxim and Playboy.


Many women who come in for “just a glamour photographer session” end up asking me midway, “Can you do nude photos? Is that okay?” Yes, I can and I do and I love to!  Here’s why: nude photos can grace the walls of your bedroom or even your bathroom. Nude photos are not just in-your-face nakedness, they are body scapes, abstracts and anonymous shots that you can admire as true artwork, featuring YOU.


If overtly sexy boudoir photos aren’t quite your thing, choose a  glamour photo session instead, which is less focused on body and more on beauty. When you think glamour portraits, Glamour Shots most likely comes to mind–an outdated concept for sure. My signature style is more contemporary, more natural and much more pleasing than the overdone glamour shots of the 80′s and 90′s. Glamour photos are also fabulous to use as an online dating profile picture and many clients opt for a quick professional head shot while they are in the studio.


A newer, in-demand portrait trend I have fallen in love with is boudoir-style maternity photos.  Soft hues, feminine touches and belly baring imagery creates a less documentary and a much more sensual, indulgent experience instead.  You and your Beloved will treasure these photographs when your child is off to college, getting married and having children of their own.


This quiet, beautiful, ultra-feminine portrait studio is located just outside Sacramento, CA.  Sessions include a makeover, photo shoot, and the experience of being totally pampered and the center of attention.

My commitment to continuing education and training is a large part of staying on top of new techniques mastering my craft.  I am a member of  Wedding and Portrait Photographers International and Professional Photographers of California, as well as being an active member of numerous photography forums.   My boudoir photography business has also been featured on many training websites and women-centered blogs.

Jillian is one amazing photographer! I felt like I met up with a friend I haven't seen in a long time and started off where we left off. Her many skills makes pictures look great and makes you comfortable throughout your session. I definitely want to take her studio set as my bedroom. I booked for my birthday gift to myself and its the best thing I've done. I woke up this morning feeling amazing!

I had boudoir photos taken for my husbands birthday, which reviewed last night. We both love them. Working with Jillian was a breeze. She is so friendly, creative, & flexible. The photo shoot itself was very relaxing & fun. We are looking forward to the next time we need her services. Women you want to give your husband a special gift see Jillian right away.

Although I hate getting my picture taken, {the boudoir photos} shoot with Jillian was a breeze! It certainly helps that she is extremely knowledgeable and well-trained with this specific work. By the time we were through, I was no longer afraid of the camera as I had learned how to pose correctly and easily. What a wonderful experience!

{Friends were} completely awe-struck. Some had "poo-pooed" the idea thinking it was just a "trashy thing" to do. Once they saw the the results, though, they took everything back...and were JEALOUS! Everyone commented that the images were done tastefully, and that I looked stunning. 🙂
