Eye Candy!

One of our favorite photographers, Lynn Michelle, is offering an amazing new concept called Eye Candy! Eye Candy portraits grew out of the simple idea of having sexy, couture images to show to your significant other to knock his socks off! The photos are taken at Lynn's super sexy private studio uniquely designed for boudoir and intimate portraiture located in Dallas, Texas.
Lynn Michelle also offers Glamour Portraits! Get your bridesmaids together or just have a girls night out at her super sexy studio and enjoy a glamour session with hair, makeup, food, fun and of course great photos!!

Curious about boudoir photography? Have some questions you want to ask? Want to see the new studio in all of its fabulousness? Would love to talk to other wonderful woman who have done it? Email Lynn Michelle for your private invitation to the event.
