I am not lying when I say there is no better job in the world that owning a boudoir business. This year Ramona and I found the perfect space and our team is expanding! We are so gracious for our clients that come in everyday and trust us with their boudoir portraits.
Owner of Cleveland Boudoir- Leah (redhead….and don’t judge me guys, you can totally see my sexy maternity pants through my shirt..oops)
Owner of Ramona Dauksa Studio- Ramona, all black
Associate Shooter- Jenni
One of the things that makes us stand out is we have a full service salon IN the boudoir studio. From the very beginning this was something that we knew we had to do. I wanted to make the experience for our clients as easy as possible. No running around to different appointments before your session- we offer it all!
And of course us shooting! We have a lot of space with gorgeous natural light and we are continually adding new sets to shoot on. Variety, variety, variety!
Thanks so much to our wonderful client & friend, Letoya who was gracious enough to come in and shoot with us and allow us to use her images. She is a endless amount of inspiration for us!
Also, a huge thanks to Lane Baldwin of Lane Baldwin Photography. If you are looking for a wedding or portrait photographer I cannot recommend her enough!
Recently I had joined AIBP (associate of international boudoir photographers), a wonderful community of like-minded business owners. It’s always great to be apart of communities, especially those who run their own businesses. It’s not an easy job but being surrounded by others who do it and successfully is a wonderful thing.
Here is a little blurb from the write up they did about me and you can see the full article here“
‘I have a confession: Leah Nowak gives me a strong case of studio envy. The Cleveland Boudoir proprietress spent much of 2012 renovating an 2,400-square-foot apartment into one of the most luxurious and beautiful shooting spaces I’ve seen (link to studio gallery). And, she did it smartly by building out a full-service salon, run by her hair and makeup partner, right inside.”
Always have to have a picture with a post!
Miss K, thank you so much for a wonderful session and allowing me to share your images. You are completely wonderful!

“I just had to say something. I have NOT stopped glowing since my shoot on Friday. I haven’t had that much fun in a long long LONG time, and I haven’t felt or looked so good in forever. Leah and Ramona, I can’t thank the two of you enough. My confidence has been restored. I now KNOW that I can be beautiful and I want to thank you lovely ladies from the bottoms of my feet to the tippy top of my head. I also want to say that you both deserve long breaks and I hope you have happy and healthy babies. Give them big smooches for me!”
