the blog

These are just a few words that come to mind when describing our vibe. Using natural light to bathe our subjects in, merging your natural beauty and our unique point of view to create timeless art 

*While Bare primarily offers boudoir and beauty portraiture, we also offer bridal portraits, intimate couples sessions, maternity, intimate motherhood sessions, and editorial work

The Mansion:
For a little vintage flair, opt for Carr Mansion located in Galveston, TX. Built in 1866, this mid-nineteenth century home survived the Great Galveston 1900 storm and still lives today to tell old stories + new. Combined with Elizabeth's modern artistic eye, you'll have a unique and timeless vibe to your portraits.

Elizabeth's home office + studio:
If your heart beats for minimalism, modern, and timeless aesthetics, opt for your session to take place at Elizabeth's. Clean lines, bright whites, and an endless amount of natural light pouring in through vast windows, all adorned with natural fabrics and textures. Opt for use of various Restoration Hardware Furniture pieces or clean backdrops that lend to a more editorial, high-fashion vibe.

After your session, we'll meet once again to view the images taken at your session and design and order final products! We are here every step of the way throughout your Bare Experience and will make sure that your final product is exactly what you want!

On the day of your session you'll be pampered by Victoria for HMU, mimosa in hand. This should take about 60-90 minutes. You'll spend 1-2 hours being photographed by Elizabeth, so overall you'll spend the majority of your morning with us! If you're surprising someone with this session, you'll want to have a good alibi ;)

After your initial inquiry, we'll hop on the phone where Elizabeth can answer all of your questions, exchange ideas, and make sure we're a good fit! 

 She empowers women to feel strong, beautiful, and makes you feel invincible. I booked a session with Elizabeth and she was so professional, she made me feel comfortable and not awkward, and she executes her shoots flawlessly with insane attention to detail. She is incredibly talented and I highly recommend to book with her! 

From the moment I walked in to my session I felt like I was meeting old friends. I had already spoken with Elizabeth on the phone a couple of times, chatted via email about the details of my session, and she even helped me choose the perfect wardrobe! Victoria listened to exactly what I wanted for my hair and makeup and made me look and feel 1000x better than I even imagined. I was literally blown away when she handed me that mirror to check myself out! And during my portrait session [with Elizabeth] I felt completely at ease and comfortable. I left there that day feeling so empowered and beautiful. It was an experience of a lifetime, and one that I'll recommend to all of my friends for sure!

“I booked my boudoir session with Elizabeth because I wanted a special memento to give my wife before our wedding anniversary. Even though I booked with a present for my spouse in mind, my boudoir photo session with Elizabeth is easily one of my favorite gifts I’ve ever given to myself. As a woman, having a safe space to freely celebrate my femininity was an incredible experience. The combination of hair, makeup, and Elizabeth’s consultation on my choice for wardrobe made me feel at my best and totally prepared to be in front of the lens. Elizabeth guided me through the session seamlessly with knowledge and ease, which made the entire experience comfortable and fun. The photos from my boudoir session turned out beautifully - Elizabeth’s eye for intimate portrait photography is truly magical. I’ll treasure these photos forever.”

Just a couple of girls with a dream for something more, to give back and help create a space where women can express themselves freely and natural beauty and uniqueness is welcomed and celebrated. Fueled by minimalism and beautiful light.

Victoria owns her own hair and makeup company, Rae Artistry, and is passionate about helping women feel beautiful through her God given talents. Victoria is a new mommy to baby Woods, and enjoys spending her time off with her Husband, Cody, step-son, Tristan, and baby boy.

Elizabeth is from a tiny town in Upstate NY, but made her way to Houston in 2010 where she discovered her passion for empowering women through photography and blogging. When she isn't doing what she loves, she's spending time with those that she loves most -her children Noah and Olivia and their daddy, Matthew.
