Your Boudoir Photographer

Alexandra Kliaman

Hi Beautiful! My name is Alex, and I am living my dream as Photographer, Creator, & Self-Love Advocate, craving to inspire and heal as many women as I can.

I’m passionate about helping you see yourself as the goddess you’ve always been BUT have not always believed yourself to be. I create a space for you to release negative self-talk and truly re-connect to your body and mind. Stepping into a state of unconditional love and admiration for yourself.

One of my favourite parts of this job is showing my clients their finished photos and seeing how f*cking proud and confident they feel from looking at themselves through new eyes. The best line is (and this happens pretty much every shoot) “omg, is that actually me I am looking at?” YES, BABE. You are all that and more! Every woman deserves to have a beautiful photograph of herself and has a story to tell.

This is a journey; sometimes, It’s uncomfortable, but when you step out of your comfort zone, that’s when the magic truly happens. After a shoot with us, our mission is that you leave with a new sense of freedom and confidence that permeates every cell of your being.

I can’t wait to make magic with you!

With love & light,

Your Boudoir Photographer

Rob Riske

My love for art goes back longer than I can remember; reflecting on it now, I am reminded of a quote by Rumi, “Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about.” and I find it to be so incredibly fitting. There was always a disconnect between the world of art and artists for me: having a strong appreciation for the art that I loved, whether it be music or paintings or photos etc…but not being able to (at least I thought) contribute to that world.

We as people tend to be our own worst critics; we look in the mirror and immediately pick out all of our flaws and imperfections, and somehow those seem even more glaring when we’re naked. But isn’t being naked a more natural state? And if you were to ask someone what they thought of you, how much of that response would be the exact opposite of your own criticisms? We come into this world unattached from all the ego, insecurity or even shame of exposed flesh…but when does that change and why does it have to? I believe we can be even more comfortable when we’re connected to those untarnished beginnings. There is a certain kind of freedom that comes with detachment from our insecurities, letting go of that fear that so often drives our view of ourselves and distorts it…seeing and being seen through a different lens. It is an incredibly powerful and healing experience.

With a boudoir session, I help change how people perceive themselves. Clients open and up and get real with me in their sessions. Telling me things they love and hate about their bodies and past emotional trauma. What I get to do is help them connect with themselves again or sometimes even, for the first time. That’s fucking powerful. When our clients see their photos for the first time and are so overcome with emotion and self-love, some don’t believe it’s even them they’re looking at. I am so grateful to do what I do!

I finally feel that I have a voice in the art world instead of just an opinion, which is a small distinction to some but means a world of expression to me.

Let’s take the ‘riske’ together! 😉 See yourself through our eyes. I can’t wait to make art and get creative with you!

Your Manifestation and Confidence Coach


Hi beautiful, my name is Jess. I am a confidence + manifestation coach, and I work with ambitious women to help them heal old wounds and limiting beliefs that have been keeping their confidence hostage.
Once you remove the fears and stories around your body image and worth, you can fully step into the highest version of yourself – the one you are destined to be. I do this by helping women connect back to their hearts, heal old patterns and trust the infinite wisdom within. You are worthy, you are enough, and you are perfect in this moment – you have simply forgotten, and it’s time to remember.

Healing Confidence coaching

As a confidence coach, I help you navigate and heal the blocks and fears around your body image and worth. Your pain is a lot deeper than what you see in the mirror.

In a 1-hour confidence coaching session, you can expect the following
-Be led through a powerful visualization to uncover the wounds that have been holding your confidence hostage
-Release and purge your confidence wounds with an inner child embodiment practice
-Implement new beliefs with guided journaling prompts
-Deeply Integrate them into your body with the mirror technique

You can follow my journey on Instagram at @jessheals.

Infinite love,

You have galaxies of magic
hidden in your bones,
in every breath,
every inch of your skin.

And you need nothing
but yourself as you are
in this moment
to feel it.

Let’s go for it!
