“I now see how owning our story
and loving ourselves through that process
is the bravest thing that we will ever do.”

Hello! I’m Jessica Rae, a Maple Ridge based intimate portrait boudoir photographer. I strive to be a visionary; a story keeper, and a believer in the power of vulnerability. My alchemic mix of photography and soul resonates deep through a personal journey of uncovering my own beauty. I photograph people of all ages, sizes and body types.
A boudoir session experience builds self-confidence and allows my client to feel as beautiful as they truly are. I promise a stress-free, safe environment where each and every client is pampered from start to finish. I hold my client’s hand throughout the entire process and work hard to make our time together an unforgettable experience.
You and your journey are a work of ART!
You have a story to tell. It is so important to share our experiences so we can commiserate with others and know that we are not alone.
An intimate portrait session can help you to navigate, explore and communicate your story through visual imagery. It can help you to see yourself inside and out with a new perspective.
With almost 6 years as a professional full time intimate portrait photographer, Jessica Rae has photographed countless subjects. Honing her skills and expanding her creativity, she is also a respected educator within her industry.
"I am soooo awkward and I was worried it would come through in the photos. I am also anxiety riddled so I was worried my overthinking would show on film. But with Jessica's coaching and reassurance for the first time I saw me for me and not for the misconceived image I had in my head. The whole experience was amazing!"
"I’m a pretty confident woman but rarely find I look my best in photos. Yeah, well Jessica changed all that! She put me at complete ease and I think brought out my glow and sparkle and took so many insightful pictures. I’ve not ever seen a naked image of me before so it was a massive eye opener. I loved the photos and Jessica put me at ease- she is a great coach and empowering. "
"The proof is in the pudding. My images are STUNNING and Jessica is the absolute best at capturing feminine sexuality that speaks beauty and class. Though I grew up very Conservatively, in my adult life, I am not shy when it comes to my body... but that doesn’t mean I’m always confident or satisfied with how I look. My photos turned out so amazing and I definitely see a more confident me in them!"
” I had a fantastic experience with Jessica. This was my first Boudoir photoshoot and I was nervous at first. I didn’t know what to do with my arms. Jessica put me at ease and offered great direction. I ended up having a lot of fun, from make up, to wardrobe changes, to the very last shot. I walked away from the shoot feeling more confident, refreshed and as though I had just done a really good work out."
"The experience made me feel like a real model. From picking out my outfit, to getting all glammed up by a hair and makeup artist, to becoming the sole focus of the lens, it is an experience that I think any woman should consider. Jessica made me feel comfortable the entire time. The final photos were amazing and so difficult to narrow down that we ended up purchasing more! Having just had a baby last year, looking at these photos definitely give me a confidence boost.”
"I was terrified to do this! Sweetest gift in the world from my amazing hubby!! I thought it was really for him until I saw this photo... it really was for me! I cried when I saw this! Now I know why women do this regularly as a confidence booster! Never wearing clothes on top of my bathing suit again. I HIGHLY recommend every woman do this in their life and Jessica Rae is AMAZING!!"
