Anika Fatouros Photography studio is located in Peekskill, NY. Our aim is to provide a fun, safe, and empowering environment for your portrait experience.
The short answer? Boudoir is a fun and liberating way for a woman to celebrate herself. A boudoir session is both sexy and empowering. From experience I know the idea of boudoir can be intimidating one, however once we start shooting all your fears will begin to fade and you will start to gain confidence.

Anika Fatouros Photography is located downtown Peekskill. Half our yearly sessions are done here. About a quarter of our sessions are done outside (if you choose to do that), and the last quarter is either done in a hotel or on location. Yes, we at Anika Fatouros Photography do travel for sessions. Please contact us for more information.
This really depends on what you need the photos for. Is this a wedding, birthday, or anniversary present for someone special? Do you need albums, frames, or additional photos? If you want one of our handcrafted Italian made photos albums as a gift to someone then we ask that you come in at least 6 weeks before the date. Our handcrafted items take 4 weeks to create! The process is intense and long but trust me it’s more than well worth it. The weekends get booked way faster than the week so if you only have availability during on the weekends I suggest calling ASAP to secure the date preferred.
We are a full-service studio. This means that although it’s optional Hair & Makeup is included in your session fee. Many may say I will do it myself, but I would advice not too. If you are going to book, I highly suggest enjoying the full experience. Which is why work closely with Tracy Ross at Life in The Beauty Lane.
The quick and simple answer is no. That’s the truth. I do light airbrushing. For example, if you have a pimple or blemish on your face, then of course, I will correct that. I also color correct all my photos and will even out skin tone. Depending on your preference, I will remove stretch marks. However, if a lady is a size 22 and wants to be a size 2… then no I don’t do that. At Anika Fatouros we want women Look at themselves, laugh at themselves, hug themselves, and love themselves. You are doing this session for you first, let that be the reason you book.
Our consultation is great ice breaker. We can do this via zoom, or in person at the studio. My main suggestion is to make a music playlist of empowering song and song that make you feel good, beautiful and sexy. Also pampering yourself before your session is great confidence boost so go ahead and Get Your Nails Done, Try on your Wardrobe Before Your Session, Practice the Poses You Want
Don’t Forget WHY You’re Doing This, Trust Yourself & Relax.
Simple. Just trust in the process. We at Anika Fatouros Photography are here to help you achieve your best photos ever. We are your biggest cheerleaders. We aim to make you feel as beautiful as you look. We will be there with you all the way to help you pose and make sure you get the best out of your session.
No. We respect everyone’s privacy. The ladies you see in my pictures are women who have given me written permission to use their photos to showcase my work. I won’t lie, I would love to use your photos for my blog. Showcasing women and telling their stories helps other women want to come up with the courage to shoot as well.
We do have outfits, but I do encourage women to bring their own lingerie to make the session more unique to them. Always bring shoe! Depending on what you are wearing a classic pair of black pumps is always a great idea. The higher the better. I always suggest at least 4 inch heels for dramatic effect. The right pumps will make an outfit stand out and your more lean!
Let’s be honest, we all have things about ourselves that we feel as though are less than perfect and we may not want one of those things shown. When we speak on the phone I will take note of you’re the areas of the body you like to conceal and enhance.
Yes! Of course! The average woman isn’t on the covers of Vogue magazine. We will help you with posing your body to for optimal photos. Not only will we tell you what to do, we will also pose in that same position so you can see firsthand what we want you to do.
Yes! We love shooting couples who are in love and would like beautifully directed photos for years to come.
