Maybe you’ve come here referred by one of our previous clients. Maybe you’re just curious about booking an exciting, exotic Boudoir photography session for yourself. Or maybe you’re planning a surprise gift for someone special. Either way, you will find lots of examples of our work here on this site, as well as answers to a lot of frequently asked questions about Boudoir photography. Stuart’s expertise in photographing women, stemming from many years photographing primarily women’s fashion, as well as his pleasant and laid back nature makes him the perfect photographer to approach.

Boudoir photography is fun, exciting, and easy going – and Stuart’s goal is to make every shoot a special occasion.



At La Noctambule, our goal is to photograph the real you. No smoke and mirrors, no extravagant Photoshopping, no embarrassing poses, just natural looking photographs showing the real you: relaxed, confident, and sexy as hell.


Picture yourself in a glossy magazine advertisement wearing some of the most exquisite lingerie imaginable. Doesn’t that feel exciting? Now, what if I were to tell you that you can have that experience, tailored to your own unique personality and sensuality. If the idea of celebrating your unique beauty intrigues you, drop us a line, and let us change the way you see yourself forever:


You are also unique in your beauty. No one else on this entire planet looks as beautiful as you. And it is my goal to photograph you in a way that shows you just how beautiful you are. My team and I will help bring out your inner beauty and make you sparkle during your boudoir photography session, and believe me, you sparkle like a diamond. No matter if your photos are intended as a surprise for a loved one, or for no other reason than you really want to do it, we will have you asking who on Earth the hottie in your photos is!
