Inspire & Empower

The ultimate boudoir experience

"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful." - Sophia Loren

My mission is to inspire you to appreciate who you are and to have the confidence to become who you want to be. Boudoir is more than sexy photos. My work promotes empowerment and artistic expression of sexuality. 


Boudoir by Amy Gilmore is an experience that allows you to see the beauty in yourself.

What is boudoir?

At my studio, boudoir is about inspiring confidence and leaving insecurities at the door.
It’s for every woman, at any age, who wants to give themselves the gift of feeling beautiful.

Before & after



“Doing a boudoir shoot with Amy was by far the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I have been overweight my entire adult life and have never felt confident or beautiful in my own skin. I was so nervous the day of the shoot. I remember I was literally shaking from nerves as we started.


Amy knew just what to say and how to help me get into poses that brought the sexy, beautiful me out and before I knew it I was feeling it, it was fun, exciting, freeing. By the end of the shoot I was comfortable enough to be down to only my panties showing off all the things I had hated about my body. Honestly those pictures that show everything that I used to think were my flaws are my favorite ones. That day Amy gave me the best gift ever…self love!!! It was definitely the most empowering, self confidence booster I’ve ever had and I can’t wait to book another session!!” – Melissa

Once in a while, blow your own damn mind.

"You truly capture the feelings and true love in every picture." - Samantha

“I was blown away by how beautiful and classy all of my pictures were. Amy Gilmore is seriously the BEST at what she does. She puts her whole heart into her photography career. I really hope each and every single one of you get the opportunity to do at least one photo shoot with her.


Please remember when choosing a photographer to not pick one because they’re cheap. Choose one based on their work and talent. Amy is just proof of “you get what you pay for. ” When you choose her, you’ll get exactly what you wanted and more.


Amy, I’ve been coming to you since you started your photography journey and I hope you know I’ll always choose you. Pictures last a lifetime and I’ve always been extremely pleased with your work and passion for what you do. From family sessions to boudoir, you truly capture the feelings and true love in every picture…” –Samantha


1.  I’m nervous!  Everyone starts out nervous, but once you get started, you will have a blast. And, just wait until you see the photos.

2. What do I wear? You can bring your own outfits, or I have an amazing client closet you can take a peek at during your consultation.

3. How do I know how to pose?  You don’t have to know. I can tell you how to pose and where to look. All you have to do is show up and have fun.

4. Where will the Boudoir session take Place?  Most of the sessions are right at my studio in Downtown Deflance, Ohio.

5. Do clients do their own hair and makeup?  Hair and makeup is part of the cost of the session. You can sit back and relax while you get pampered.
