Our Clients Say:
The gift for my husband turned out to be a even bigger gift to myself!
… needless to say I was nervous and skeptical about the whole thing. Thomas made me feel welcome, comfortable and at ease from the moment I stepped into the studio! Caitlin did an amazing job with my hair and makeup! The atmosphere was so relaxed and fun! The shoot was amazing! All the doubts and the tension that I felt about doing the shoot … GONE! Reveal day… WOW ! Amazing ! Stunning ! Beautiful ! Sexy but Classy ! I couldn’t believe that I was looking at pictures of myself and actually thought…. WOW ! If you are thinking about a Boudoir photo shoot, you won’t find a better photographer than Thomas Crowl! The gift for my husband turned out to be a even bigger gift to myself! The gift of self confidence! I can’t thank Thomas enough for that gift! This photo shoot turned out to be one of the best things I have ever done!
I felt my inner child transform into a strong & desirable woman again!
The past year was really tough on me as a professional woman; the sudden loss of my job, feelings of betrayal, feeling defeated….I lost sight of myself. I had a brief encounter with an amateur photographer, and being in front of his viewfinder; he captured me in a way that began to bring me back to life. Then I met Thomas. I had never done a boudoir shoot but scheduled to have mine just 2 days shy of birthday number 57. In the few hours that I was in his studio, from makeup to completion I felt my inner child transform into a strong and desirable woman again! To say that I was blown away by my photos is an understatement. Both Caitlin and Thomas were outstanding! I would highly recommend having a shoot with Thomas, even if you are merely considering but think you don’t have what it takes….oh girl YOU DO!
The confidence boost and excitement that comes out after a shoot here is really like no other.
Absolutely fantastic experience with Thomas Crowl Boudoir Photography!! His studio provides a vast array of options for background, props, design, everything. The variety is amazing, and the photography comes out stunning. The confidence boost and excitement that comes out after a shoot here is really like no other. If I could give more stars I would!!
I’m an artist who loves bringing joy to people through words and pictures. As a performance artist, my programs made audiences laugh and let go of stress.
But it wasn’t until I started photographing boudoir sessions that I realized how empowering it can be for my clients. I take photos that prove how beautiful they are, and it’s more powerful than just telling them.
While laughter is positive, it is fleeting. Boudoir photography was empowering and life changing.
As someone who wants to make a positive difference in people’s lives, boudoir photography has become my focus and specialty.

I am so NERVOUS ... is that normal?
Yes, it is. Don’t panic! Almost everyone feels nervous their first time at the studio. After all, it isn’t everyday that you get into fancy lingerie and have a camera pointed at you. This is your session, and the studio is a no-judgment zone that works within your comfort zone. As soon as you start seeing your images, your confidence will grow. By the end of the shoot, you’ll be posing like a supermodel! I promise!
I have no idea how to pose, can you help?
Definitely! Pose coaching is included in your session. Since not all bodies are the same, I will suggest the best poses for your body type. After all, I want you to look and feel amazing in your photographs.
Do I have to do my own hair & makeup?
Our Deluxe Boudoir Experience includes a professional hair & makeup artist. Caitlin or Emily will work with you to create the perfect look. It offers you a chance to relax and get pampered before your shoot. After all, this is your day!
Where will my boudoir session be?
My home studio is located in downtown Westminster, Maryland. The entire upper floor is a dedicated studio space with two studios to offer you a variety of options for your photoshoot.
How many sessions do you book a day?
I focus on providing my clients with personalized attention and care, which is why I only book one session per day. This allows me to devote my full attention to every client and handle every aspect of the process from start to finish. My ultimate goal is to ensure that you have an exceptional boudoir experience and are thrilled with the results. From pre-planning to the shoot, editing, and product delivery, I am committed to providing you with the highest level of service.
How far out do you typically book?
The studio is usually booked about six months in advance. Sometimes we will add dates, or clients will need to reschedule. If you get on my waiting list, you can get first chance at any dates that may become available.
I'm plus size, is this for me?
Definitely! Boudoir is for EVERY BODY!
What should I wear?
When you reach out, I will send you our free boudoir outfit guide. It has lots of options to help you decide what is best for you. Plus, I am here to help if you have any questions or want feedback on an outfit.
How many outfits do you shoot?
We generally shoot 3-4 outfits during a session. I always recommend you bring extra. Some outfits may photograph better than others. It is better to have too many options than not enough.
How long is a photoshoot?
The photoshoot itself takes about two hours. Hair and makeup usually add an extra hour onto that time. Plan 3 to 3 and a half hours to be on the safe side!
Do I have to get naked?
No! Each session is tailored to the client’s comfort level. While some clients do full nudity, others do not. It is always up to you.
When do I get to see my photos?
You’ll get a sneak peek at some images during your session, and about two weeks later we’ll schedule a Reveal & Ordering appointment. That’s when you’ll see all of your edited images and have the opportunity to select any products you’d like to order.
Will my photos be private?
Absolutely! Your privacy is important to me. Your photos will always be kept private unless you give written permission for me to share them. During your reveal and ordering session, you can decide if you want to sign a release. There is no pressure or obligation to do so.
Can I bring a friend?
You can bring a friend to your session, but I don’t recommend it since it can add to your nerves. If you do bring a friend, they must be positive and follow certain rules, like no negativity, intoxication, or taking pictures. They may need to wait in the hallway and may be asked to leave if they break the rules.
How much does this cost?
I offer a boudoir experience personalized to your needs. I understand that some may be looking for a less expensive option, and my studio may not be the right fit. I provide several session options that we can discuss when we talk. I will also send you my product price list. During our conversation, I provide all the details and pricing without any obligation to book. This is a no-pressure environment and you will be treated with the respect you deserve.
