Cape Girardeau Missouri Boudoir Photography. Serving Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, the Midwest and beyond.

Book your luxury portrait session today.

A boudoir session is an uplifting, confidence boosting and fun experience. It's a way to celebrate yourself as you are and see the beauty that we often forget we have. I want everyone that works with me to walk away feeling confident, beautiful, and ready to take on other things in their life. When you invest in yourself, you truly do go further. You are worthy, you are wonderful, and you are brave.

The Boudoir Experience and what to expect

Before Your Session

We will walk through everything together! How you'd like to be photographed, what you want to get from the session, what poses you are comfortable with doing, choosing lingerie and where to purchase, and making sure you are properly prepped for your session! I will send you a guide for how to prepare and help put your mind at ease!

During Your Session

We will start with professional hair and makeup which is included! (Who doesn't love to feel pampered?) Next we will go through the outfits you brought, look through my client closet and decide which to do first. I will put on some fun music and we will get started! I will demonstrate every pose first so you can get a gist of what it looks like beyond just me talking. Before long you will be a total pro!

After Your Session

After your session we will schedule to meet up for the best part - your image reveal! We will go over all of your images in a slide show so you can pick out your favorites and decide what images/collection you'd like unless you've already decided with a pre payment plan!

My session fee is $300 and that includes all of the amazing things listed above! Prints and products are sold separately and prices vary depending on what you would like! My products include luxury albums, beautiful vivid wall art, leather collection boxes full of matted prints called Folio Boxes, digital images, and Collections which include multiple products.

*** Ask me about my payment plan options that make this experience even better!

Love Notes (Client Reviews)

"Is there a way I can leave a review?! I don't see it but if I could Megan definitely gets 5 STARS !!!

I was slightly nervous for my photoshoot a couple weeks ago.. even though I love doing it! I didn't know Megan before hand but she made me feel so comfortable! It was like a mini girls day vibe while doing my shoot. Laughing, talking, and just having fun! She was so great at giving me poses and showing me how to execute them! She also made ya girl feel FABULOUS! Hyping me up the whole time! I also LOVED getting the full experience with the hair and makeup. It was a treat

Fun, Empowering, Classy photoshoot!"

"If you are thinking of getting a shoot done by her, I'm here to tell you just DO IT! Stop second guessing! I promise you won't regret it."

"I can't say how much I loved this! It was a whole new experience for me and Megan made me feel comfortable from the get-go! I would recommend her to anyone who asked me! "

  • Baylee

"I have never felt confident in my own body. I rarely feel beautiful. I rarely feel comfortable around people in ALL my clothes. Megan made me feel so comfortable, and so relaxed, and made the whole experience so wonderful. I have wanted to do a boudoir session since I was a teen, I felt like maybe it would help boost my confidence, I put it on the back burner and didnt think of it until my friend did one. I found Megan online, and knew I'd enjoy being around her. I'm a super awkward person but she didn't make me feel that way. She helped me feel more confident about the parts of me I like, and helped me like parts of me I'm not a huge fan of. Because of this session I have felt so amazing."

"I have found this confidence that I didn't know was inside me. I had such a wonderful experience, and if you're looking for your sign to book it, this is it."

  • Rachel

"Megan is professional and kind, she sets a relaxing atmosphere for you to open up and let your true self shine through!!"

  • Michele

"Whether you want to book it for yourself or a session with your significant other, you will not be disappointed!! You will not regret it and the investment you make is most definitely worth it! As I sit here and think back to that day it still brings the biggest smile to my face. I could never say thank you enough."

"I found Megan completely by pure luck! I did not know her nor had I ever met her prior to my appointment, but she definitely made us feel comfortable and at ease with everything. My photo session was kind of a spur of the moment decision that she ended up being able to make happen within a few weeks notice. The communication with her from start to finish was amazing!! She was very professional, responded to texts and emails in a timely manner and was so sweet! I ended up booking a couples session for my boyfriend and I. I wish I could find the words to describe how awesome everything was, but I would fall short. We had discussed outfits, hair, makeup, music preferences, and all those things in advance. We even created a shared Pinterest board for poses we each had in mind. She also emailed a preparation guide leading up to our appointment date. We arrived and got started with makeup and hair. I'm not one to wear a lot of makeup or fake lashes, but I felt absolutely gorgeous that day! My boyfriend wasn't sure of what to expect, but soon found out and it was game on!!  He was such a great sport and ended up having so much fun! He couldn't wait to see the end results either! The images we were able to view just a few days later were the best I have ever seen! The products with the packages she offers are stunning! So many options for material and color. Within just a few weeks, she had sent the tracking number for the shipment of the products I ordered. I received my album, metal photos and folio box just a few days after that. Everything was gorgeous! Long story cannot go wrong booking a session with Megan! Whether you want to book it for yourself or a session with your significant other, you will not be disappointed!! You will not regret it and the investment you make is most definitely worth it! As I sit here and think back to that day it still brings the biggest smile to my face. I could never say thank you enough."

"All I can say is wow! The photos were amazing and I looked absolutely beautiful"

"I don’t know about you, but I’ve struggled with self-confidence since I was very young. I hadn’t learned that it’s important to love and value yourself. Now, that I’m older with much more life experiences, I’ve learned that life needs to be lived.

Last weekend, I stepped out of my comfort zone. For months, I have been planning for a boudoir photo shoot. My hope for this photo shoot was to be able to “see” myself in a different light. Thanks to Megan Dillingham, I felt very comfortable and had an amazing time.

Tonight was my photo review. All I can say is “wow”! The photos were amazing, and I looked absolutely beautiful! I am so glad that I did this, and would encourage others to do the same. Seize the day, love yourself, and be amazing!"

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm super nervous.. I don't know if I can do this!

  • I will be there for you Every step of the way! From our initial consult, to the session itself where I give you direction and act out the poses first, to our reveal appointment. We will do this all together.

Do I have to share my images?

  • Never! All of the images I share in my portfolio are from clients who have given me the permission to do so and signed a model release form. You never have to share any images from your session unless you want to.

What if I have insecurities?

  • All the more reason for you to do a session! We all have some kind of insecurity but I want to show you that you are gorgeous no matter what. In our consult I will ask about specific things you love about your body and things that you aren't as fond of and when you see yourself in your photos at the reveal, you'll realize just how gorgeous you are.

I don't own lingerie!

  • No problem. I have a growing client-closet for you to choose from and also provide different stores that I recommend. If you don't like lingerie, let's do something else! I've had women wear sweaters and undies, sports jerseys, full length bodysuits, tank tops, etc.
