There are so many things I could say about my shoot with Laura, she made me feel so comfortable, beautiful, and confident during my shoot. I am not a confident person by any means. I’m incredibly self conscious and I’ve been very self critical about myself for as long as I can remember. Walking into the room, I was ready to turn around and run because I was so nervous. I didn’t need to be. They immediately made me feel so much better and were encouraging me every step of the way. They genuinely cared about how I was feeling throughout the shoot and made me feel good about myself. If you haven’t booked a shoot yet, do it. You won’t regret it. - Jordan H.
I went in to this session looking for this amazing overwhelming experience, an awakening into myself. I didn’t get that and was quite disappointed because I thought I was at the place of hating myself..one of the three reasons Laura describes [see blog post here]. However, after deep thinking I realized the steps I have been taking towards loving me were working. It’s not easy but little by little I am falling in love with me. I am perfectly imperfect and I LOVE that!!What better way to celebrate that and on my birthday to top it off!! This was one of the best birthday gifts I’ve ever given myself. I thought I was going to be nervous but the only thing I was nervous about was my makeup T. They are very professional and know how to ease any nervousness away. Team lastphoto.kc is the best!!! - Tosha T.
So coming into my session I told Laura that I was going to take pictures now when I’m at my biggest (weight wise) and again when I get skinny/to my goal weight.
She knocked all my fears right out and this picture right here honestly is my favorite of them all! The rolls and streatch marks that I gained from having a baby are what make me beautiful! I still have goals I still want to lose weight but Laura hit it out of the park and made me see I was beautiful just how I am!
If you have not booked a session now is the time to do it ♥️ - Quinn R.
This was a special experience for me. 6 months ago I gave birth to my sweetest little boy，being a mom is a wonderful thing！However，I noticed that I lose my confidence. My size went up and those stretch marks just makes me don't feel pretty anymore！I signed myself up anyway and the experience was incredible！They cared about what I want and like！They are so comfortble to work with and very easy going！The whole session was so fun！Those photos turned out so pretty！Such a wonderful experience！- Eva M.
Why Should I choose your studio?
Our studio is located in a private residence and there is an all female staff. lastphoto.kc is ranked in the top 2% of boudoir photographers in the world (shoot & share) and has been featured on the cover of multiple magazines as well as publications in several international publications.
i have acne, cellulite, rolls, wrinkles, scars, etc. will you photoshop me?
Retouching images follows a specific guideline; if it can be removed or corrected in 5 minutes then we will edit it (blemish, lipstick smudge, etc.). If you would like bruising to be corrected, that is also possible on a case-by-case basis. We do not do in-house body altering, and would outsource that if it is requested (starting $50/image).
How does payment work?
The only thing required to book, is the session fee. Products & images are available for purchase at your reveal session. Collections can be purchased in advance or at the reveal, by cash or card. We do offer pre and post payment plans. Once those are paid off is when your order is placed.
