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 am an artist that specializes in bringing joy to people in both verbal and visual mediums. As a performance artist, my programs kept audiences laughing, releasing stress and tension.
It wasn’t until the first time I photographed boudoir that I realized the profound impact it has on my clients.
While laughter is positive, it is fleeting. Boudoir photography was empowering and life changing.
I could tell you, “You are beautiful.” but would you believe me? Now I take photographs that prove you are beautiful – and that is more powerful than you can imagine. The images become a constant reminder of how amazing you are, creating a feeling of confidence that can’t be beaten!
That is why, as someone who wants to make a positive difference in people’s lives, boudoir photography became my focus and specialty.

I am so NERVOUS ... is that normal?
Yes it is. Don’t panic. Almost everyone is nervous their first time at the studio. After all, it isn’t everyday you get into fancy lingerie and have a camera pointed your way. This is your session and the studio is a no-judgement 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 super model! 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 cozy 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?
ONE. I limit the number of bookings I take each month, so every client gets my full attention from start to finish. From pre-planning to shoot, to editing and product delivery – I handle the entire process. My goal is to make sure you are thrilled with the process and results.
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 will get to see some images during the photoshoot. About two weeks after your session, you will have a Reveal & Ordering appointment. That is when you will get to see your edited images and decide if you want to order any products.
Will my photos be private?
YES! All client images are ALWAYS private unless they provide a written release allowing me to share. Some clients love their photos and want me to share them with future clients. You can make that decision after your reveal and ordering session. There is no obligation or pressure to sign a release. If you don’t want them shared, they remain private.
Can I bring a friend?
- The friend must be a positive person, no negativity is allowed.
- They may not be intoxicated or under the influence of any drugs.
- They may be asked to wait in the hallway between the studios so they are not in the way of the photoshoot.
- No “backseat coaching” is allowed.
- No other cameras are allowed and they can not take pictures.
If any of those rules are violated, they will be required to leave.
How much does this cost?
If you are looking for a bargain, my service is not for you. My studio provides a personal, customized, transforming boudoir experience. We have a couple of different options available for your session. When you contact the studio, I will share all the details and pricing, plus send you my product price list. When we talk, you are under no obligation to book a shoot. I never pressure anyone, I treat you as I would want to be treated.
