ABOUT THE BOUDOIR DIVAS:
The Boudoir Divas are Marissa Bouchér & Kimberlee West. Together they own and operate The Boudoir Divas Studio, an experience-based, high-volume studio located in San Diego, California. In the past 5 years, the Divas have moved from a tiny 1-car garage into a gorgeous 4,500 square foot studio decked out with 20 distinct sets for boudoir. The Boudoir Divas’ studio has a staff of eight women, and they have had over 600 boudoir clients come through their doors in the last year.
Marissa and Kimberlee fell in love with boudoir over ten years ago, and when they launched their “Bringing Boudoir Back” campaign full-force in early 2007, they realized that boudoir was in even more demand than they could have dreamed. It was then that Marissa and Kimberlee recognized the lack of educational resources available to professional photographers on boudoir. In early 2008, the Divas released the first-ever A to Z educational book on starting a boudoir studio, creating major buzz among photographers and the industry as a whole. The “Workshop in a Book” received such rave reviews that as a result, Marissa and Kimberlee have been asked to lead seminars, speak at conventions and hold workshops around the world. Marissa & Kimberlee have also written two other books about boudoir posing, and have developed other resources for professional photographers who would like to refine their own boudoir business. The Divas also lead boudoir workshops in San Diego, California, and Paris, France! They feel incredibly blessed with all of the amazing opportunities they have been given.
The Boudoir Divas can be characterized in many ways. More than just photographers themselves, these ladies are creative visual artists, entrepreneurs, and inseparable friends. They love boudoir photography and continue to envision and implement original ideas and far-reaching dreams. Marissa and Kimberlee are, at their core, incredibly passionate and hard-working business women, and they pursue what others may think is impossible, with a zeal that is nearly palpable.
What makes their studio so successful is their desire to give every woman the opportunity to feel like a supermodel. “Every woman has her own unique beauty, and it is our hope that we help her embrace just that.”
