Art, both performance and physical, have always been a passion of mine.


During my high school years, I found passion in the world of drama, where I immersed myself in various creative roles such as dancing, acting, costume design, set painting, and stage makeup. These experiences continue to inspire my work in set design and photography to this day.

After graduating high school in 2014, I took a year to explore different opportunities, leading me to discover pin-up modelling modeling and my love for creative makeup artistry.

In the fall of 2015, at the age of 19, I established 'Tenille R Makeup Artistry' while pursuing a degree in Art and Design. It became my addiction and my obsession. Even amidst my college studies, I eagerly provided makeup services on photo sets and catered to a growing clientele, particularly during wedding seasons. Over time, my focus shifted towards photography, culminating in the completion of a Bachelor's degree in Visual Communications in 2018, specializing in graphic design, web development, and photography.

My dedication to my craft has always been unwavering. I am driven by a deep-seated desire to capture the inherent beauty of individuals and immortalize meaningful moments through my lens. Embracing the diverse expressions of the human form, I strive to create personalized experiences that resonate with each client.

My clientele is wonderfully diverse, ranging from experienced models and dancers to individuals embarking on their first photographic journey. It is both humbling and gratifying to be entrusted with their stories.

Beyond my professional endeavours, I find fulfillment in a variety of creative pursuits, including costume making, pole dancing, and nurturing my vintage apartment. Additionally, I indulge in stage performance as a dancer several nights a week.

In essence, my work is fueled by a genuine passion for creativity and connection.


Here are some of the things that inspire me:

  • Crafting and sewing costumes

  • Exploring the artistry of burlesque, strip, and pole dancing

  • Starting my day with a warm cup of coffee or tea

  • Enjoying the fabulousness of RuPaul's Drag Race

  • Appreciating the elegance of ballet and the expression of dance

  • Immersing myself in the world of painting and art history

  • Bringing ideas to life through web and graphic design

You are welcome. You are safe.

Working with the wrong person can do some damage. In my studio, you're not just welcomed, you're truly invited.


Over nearly 9 years, I've honed my expertise in the boudoir world, ensuring every client feels comfortable and empowered throughout their session. I guide without pressure, respecting boundaries and preferences at every step.

Before your session, you'll receive a comprehensive guide covering everything from what to expect to outfit ideas, catering to all genders, couples, and individuals. Everyone, regardless of background or identity, is encouraged to embrace their uniqueness.


The reason you see so many different people/bodies in my portfolio, is because that really matters to me.

Here, you'll find a safe space to explore your sexuality, gender, and identity through photography. Your session is tailored to showcase the authentic you.

I place a strong emphasis on respecting your boundaries. It's not just about taking pictures; it's about creating a safe and trusting space where you feel empowered to express yourself freely. When we honor your boundaries, it allows for a genuine and comfortable experience, devoid of any feelings of exploitation or discomfort. This mutual respect enhances the overall quality of our session, ensuring that it's a positive and empowering experience for both of us. I believe that every individual has the right to control how they are portrayed, and by prioritizing your boundaries, we can create beautiful images that celebrate your beauty, consent, and personal agency.


My approach to editing and posing emphasizes authenticity. While I enhance skin tone through retouching, I preserve your natural body shape without any alterations. My focus is on refining lighting and overall photo composition, ensuring a true representation of your essence.

From poses to settings, each session is meticulously tailored to your preferences. My 535-square-foot studio offers a versatile backdrop, ranging from minimalist to vibrant, to curate the ideal boudoir experience for you.

I believe in clear and straightforward communication. My instructions are conveyed in simple language, ensuring clarity and ease of execution. I demonstrate poses while providing clear explanations, ensuring seamless collaboration. Your input, gathered through our booking questionnaire, guides my selection of poses and sets, ensuring a personalized boudoir session.

Since my time in high school musical theatre and dance productions, I have always loved the stage, some of my best memories being photos I would get from competitions and shows. Today, as a professional dancer and performer, I understand the need for quality photos even more

I extend this love and understanding to fellow dancers/performers who want the perfect shot of their splits, kicks and tricks! Understanding performance, dance and timing allows me to better serve my clients, who deserve to have their talents showcases!
