SELF LOVE IS A JOURNEY
Welcome to Taylar Wildman Studios
Intimate Portrait Photographer Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Intimate portraiture is the art of capturing moments that highlight your individual beauty and sensuality.
It's a way to celebrate who you are without fear or shame. It's a way to reclaim our bodies and explore our self expression in a safe and supportive space.
Behind The Lens
Hey, I'm Taylar
As the seasons in our lives change, our bodies do too and that is a beautiful privilege worth capturing.
I want to know your story and portray your journey through art. Anyone can create a posed untrue version of yourself, but I want to go much deeper than that.
My mission is to help women tap into a deep source of self acceptance and love through intimate portraiture.
Why Book a Boudoir Session?
Boudoir photography can be a powerful experience that allows you to rediscover your self-love and embrace your inner beauty. This form of photography captures intimate and sensual moments in a tasteful and empowering way.
In today's world, where beauty standards can often be unrealistic and pressure to conform is high, boudoir photography offers a refreshing perspective. It celebrates all body types, ages, and backgrounds, encouraging individuals to embrace their unique beauty and feel comfortable in their own skin.
Many people might initially feel apprehensive about baring themselves in front of a camera. However, with my skills, I know how to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere that allows clients to relax and truly be themselves. I will guide you through poses and angles that highlight your natural beauty. Let me show you how damn beautiful you are!
The power of boudoir photography lies not just in the final images, but in the experience itself. It is an opportunity for self-discovery and a chance to embrace and appreciate your body in its entirety. The process can boost your self-confidence, allowing you to see yourself in a new light and recognize your own worth and beauty.
Boudoir photography can be a transformative experience that empowers individuals to embrace their bodies and boost their self-esteem. It allows you to break free from societal expectations and appreciate your unique beauty. So, if you ever find yourself looking for a fresh perspective and a boost of self-confidence, consider exploring the power of boudoir photography.
Located in the Devenish building on 17th Ave SW. This beautiful space has original antique hardwood floors and beautiful large windows allowing plenty of natural light into the space. When you step into the studio, you'll immediately feel at ease in the cozy and inviting atmosphere.
I understand that baring your vulnerability in front of the camera can be intimidating, and that is perfectly natural and expected, which is why I strive to create a safe and comfortable space for you to be yourself.
What led me to photography was at the age of 12, I wanted to give my mom a mothers day gift she would love. I photographed beautiful flowers from our backyard garden, framed it and she was in love with it. For the first time, I learned what it felt like to share how I viewed and honored the beauty of this world. This experience led me to the art of photography and my love for it continued to grow.
I didn't initially start with boudoir photography and when I started my business in 2020 I began with weddings and family sessions, offering my work for free or heavily discounted to build my portfolio. I stumbled upon boudoir when an old friend asked me if I would be willing to give it shot, and of course, I said yes! Seeing her reaction to her photos and watching her confidence grow throughout the session was when I realized that I need to pursue this genre of photography.
Starting my business and venturing into boudoir photography was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Will you use my images for advertising and/or portfolio purposes?
To put it simply, it is up to you! In your booking contract, there will be an image release section where you let me know what you are comfortable with.
How long will it take to receive proofs and how?
I deliver your proofs through an online private gallery and my turn around time is 1-2 weeks from the session date.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! For the convenience of my clients, spread out your payments with 4 installments for up to 6 weeks. The best part is you'll receive your product right away!
is hair & makeup included
Unfortunately no, however, I know of many amazing hair and makeup artists here in Calgary that I can refer you to.
Do you give me the raw images?
To put it simply, no. When you hire me, you are hiring my style and trust me to bring my creative interpretation to the session. The editing process is equally important as the photo taking part.
I am not a model, I have never done this before.
That is totally fine! I will guide you every step of the way and help make you feel as comfortable as possible. I will go as far as directing eyes closed or open, where to place hands, moving your hair and so forth. All you need to do is enjoy yourself, be present in the moment, and trust my guidance. I will do all the work for you, I got your back!
I don't have any lingerie to wear
No need to worry, I got your back! I have a client closet that I offer to my clients so that they can access luxury lingerie. I always recommend my clients to bring 2-3 pieces that they feel good in. These pieces do not necessarily have to be lingerie.
Are any digitals included in the session fee?
Digitals, prints, and albums are at an additional cost that you can find on my website under investment. On that page, you will also be able to find out what is included with your session fee.
