De La Teja Studio

Wisconsin’s Fine Art Boudoir Experience

“My Boudoir experience with Heidi & Gerry was incredibly fun and completely liberating. They gave me my confidence back and rescued me from my conformed daily routine! The images they created left my husband and I speechless. Their international style blew away our expectations with fresh ideas not canned Pinterest repeats. My session was customized with poses for my figure not generic ideas found in a magazine that make you look contorted. The results were passionate, dreamy and mesmerizing fine art boudoir images.

Heidi and Gerry provided an ultra relaxing environment and pampered me like a movie star and included sneak peeks so I could see how my session was unfolding. They included little breaks so I could touch up, savor my wine and enjoy my much need time away from my kiddos. I needed to be reminded of who I was, not only a mom and a wife but an individual beautiful woman! They catered to my needs and listened carefully to my concerns regarding my C-section among other things. Heidi & Gerry were personal, uplifting and motivating.  I highly recommend a boudoir session with Heidi and Gerry of De La Teja Studio. It was a life changing experience!” A MILLION THANKS ~ Elizabeth W.

What to wear

We are your fashion guides and want to help you select outfits that will compliment your skin and hair tone to set your Boudoir pictures aside from the rest. Don’t forget accessories, like hats, jewelry, scarves and shoes. Why not personalize your session with a classic car or motorcycle!…we’re up from anything!

Looking for the perfect frock… may we suggest ~ Agent Provocateur.com, for love & lemons.com, Adoreme.com, and Dollhouse Bettie.com

For a slender appearance we recommend purchasing panties and stocking 1 sizes bigger so the material flows off your body instead of cutting into it. If you wish to emphasize your bust purchase your bra one cup size smaller ~ this gives the illusion of a larger breast. Perhaps a corset if you are long waisted or a baby doll to shadow your hips and waist. Vintage is the rave these days, perhaps a Merry widow body suit…oh and don’t forget garter belts, ladies. Lets focus on the positive ~ what do you love about yourself, because every woman has their favorite assets!

Bridal Boudoir
