Empower yourself and feel more confident than you ever have before.

The Kent Smith Noir Experience celebrates you. Your triumphs, your strength, your power, and your unique beauty. You have so many roles–wife, mom, friend, daughter–you deserve to take some time to be pampered and find yourself again.

Our artwork of you celebrates your femininity, fierceness, and sexuality. It’s not necessarily about revealing skin or lingerie–it’s about confidence, celebrating who you are, and self-love. It’s sexy, empowering, and elegant.

We are the best at what we do. You will feel gorgeous and pampered as we take care of every last detail.

It’s time to celebrate who you are, at this moment.

As a Woman, You Deserve to Be Celebrated

Boudoir is about celebrating your body as you are right now, not as you will be. It is an act of self-love rebellion in a world where we are inundated with images of impossible beauty standards.

But what’s really incredible is how our Noir Experience makes you feel. This empowering boudoir photography session captures the real you through gorgeous portraits and beauty artistry. We combine stunning photography with professional hair and makeup services to help you feel confident, beautiful, and amazing.

It’s transformative. From the moment you walk through our front door, the rest of the world is shut out. For the next few hours, you’ll be on a self-care journey that will change the way you feel about you.

Our Columbus boudoir photographers will cheer you on the entire way and you will truly have nothing and no one to worry about.

The Kent Smith Noir Experience

When you arrive at our studio, you are placed in experienced hands to unhurriedly style your hair, create your makeup look, and choose outfits, poses, and backdrops for your session. Both our on-location staff and post-production team are exclusively female to ensure your comfort and privacy.

As you’re handed your mimosa, you’ll find yourself relaxing into your session and emotionally preparing for the transformation you’re about to undergo.

Once you’re feeling gorgeous and glam, we’ll move to the set where your photographer will expertly guide you in posing your body to accentuate all your best features. This is the ultimate in decadence: treating yourself to a new way of exploring your unique beauty. You’ll come out of the experience feeling more powerful and liberated than ever before.

Your session includes 60 minutes of photography plus up to 90 minutes with a hair and makeup artist. Within a couple of weeks, you’ll have a collection of stunning photos to choose from.

What to Know About Our Columbus Boudoir Photography

If you have never done a boudoir session before, you may find this experience a rediscovery. It can be emotional and powerful to find yourself again. It may start as a gift for someone special, but in the end, you’ll find it’s the best gift you’ll ever give yourself.

You don’t have to reveal a lot of skin to have an incredible boudoir session. Beauty is more than what’s seen on the outside–it radiates from the soul. In your Columbus boudoir photography session, we cater to your unique tastes and capture your inner and outer beauty so you feel truly seen and valued.

Bring your own complete outfits for the session, but feel free to accessorize using our studio closet to enhance your look. We are here to celebrate you in all your gorgeousness!

Boudoir Session Pricing


Boudoir sessions start at $500 and include hair, makeup, and a photography session. Most clients spend between $800 and $1,300 on albums, wall portraits, and digital files. Ordering an album keeps your images for private viewing only, but wall portraits are a bold way to spice up private spaces.
