Michiana Boudoir is an intimate portrait studio located in a unique historic building in downtown Elkhart. I am Crystal, the photographer, artist, and owner. I have specialized in boudoir photography since 2010. My mission is to show you the beautiful that everyone else sees when they look at you, while providing a luxurious fun experience.
"You won't regret it ever!"
“I saw my photos last night and teared up a bit. Crystal kept scrolling through and it was like looking at pictures for a perfume ad. Then it hit me, wait, that's ME!?! Sometimes we allow people to determine our beauty. I have had a few toxic relationships and started to devalue myself. With every hurtful comment, I changed the picture of myself in my mind to reflect their attitudes. Crystal showed me no, this IS YOU. This is what she sees and what the world sees. Crystal thank you! From the bottom of my heart! In one hour, I released all of those thoughts and tossed them away. Today, I am walking around, and pausing at the mirror to check myself out. Also, my thought patterns are positive self talk, "Damn girl, you're hot today; those guys were idiots, look at what they missed out on; snap, my butt looks good today." Crystal might have created a monster, but, it's better then the alternative! ALL WOMEN MUST DO THIS!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT, EVER!”
"I felt comfortable the entire time I was there."
"I had a PHENOMENAL time with Crystal! She is absolutely wonderful! She is so warm and caring, and will lift you up and help you so much through the whole experience. I felt comfortable the entire time I was there. Sabra did an amazing job on my hair and makeup. I will DEFINITELY be back again, hopefully very soon."
"I got my grove back!"
"Thank you Crystal! I feel like I got my grove back! It’s been a long time since I felt comfortable and beautiful in my own skin. The women that get you ready for your shoot are amazing as well. First time ever for professional make up. Crystal you are so great at directing what you want to capture. I am forever blessed with what you have helped me find in myself!"
"Super huge confidence booster!"
"What I love most is that I actually look like me in these pictures, but more skinny, beautiful and glamorous. Crystal and crew were amazing at keeping me at ease and laughing.
I've had major weight issues my whole life, I've dealt with depression and suicide attempts, and identity issues. I've never looked in the mirror and not focused on my flaws. First, finding my identity in Jesus pulled me out of depression, has bright me a joy and immeasurable life change. I'm slowly embracing the me who HE says I am and working on seeing that daily in the mirror is a challenge.
After all I'm still a woman, with flaws and flab and gray hairs in a world of photoshop divas... But these pictures, WOW, super huge confidence booster. I highly recommend if you are at all interested, go for it! You won't be sorry! Thanks Crystal!!!"
