 Love Notes

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.  My session was customized with poses for my figure not generic ideas found in a magazine.  Heidi and Gerry provided a relaxing environment and pampered me like a movie star. They included sneak peeks so I could see how my session was unfolding also they provided breaks to 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 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!”~ Elizabeth W.

Try ~ Agent, for love &,, and Dollhouse If you do not own lingerie simply select a sexy frock from our enchanted wardrobe. Let us know how we may help make your session a success! 


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!
