Welcome to Wild Light Boudoir

Hello, you beautiful human!

We are a glamour portrait & boudoir studio located in Kansas City, Mo (but we also LOVE traveling to our clients)! If you've made it here, that means our work has caught your eye, and that makes us so so happy. 🖤

Wild Light Boudoir is owned by two life-long best friends: Shannon & Ashleigh. Our company aims to empower, provide a safe space to appreciate your body and embrace your sexuality, and to prove to you that YOU ARE THE ART.

"People often say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing you are the beholder."

- Selma Hayek

Step 1: Contact

Fill out the contact form on our website and you'll immediately be sent a link to schedule a quick phone consultation with us so we can get to know each other, figure out what you're wanting out of your experience, and get you scheduled for one of the most memorable experiences of your life!

Step 2: Show Up, For Yourself

Leading up to, and even on session day, you may find yourself feeling a little nervous. This is COMPLETELY normal, but also, those feelings will not last long! We do everything we can to make you feel prepared for your session: from sending you a pre-session prep check-list to collaborating on a Pinterest inspiration board & hand picking your session outfits.

When you arrive for your session, you will be prepared & SO excited!! You'll hop into Ashleigh's hair & makeup area and she'll glam you up while Shannon preps the sets & outfits.

After Ashleigh's done helping you look your absolute best, you'll spend about 60-90 minutes exploring the studio with us, listening to some great tunes, learning the poses with our guidance, & connecting with yourself - all while we capture the moments & create some stunning works of art, together.

Step 3: Order Your Artwork

Once we wrap up shooting, you have two options - Hang out with us for about 30-40 minutes, maybe have a snack & a drink, and then sit down to view your photos & place your orders. All ON THE SAME DAY.


If you're tired and would like to leave (because you just WORKED your ass off), you can head home and you'll receive a link to schedule your viewing & ordering appointment for later that week.

Meet the Artists

Ashleigh & Shannon met each other in 2003, standing in line for tetherball during 5th grade recess. Through an intense tetherball battle (LOL), the two became close friends. Throughout the next 20 years, life happened. Family struggles, teenage struggles, breakups, jobs, marriage, pregnancy, college, loss, triumphs - a lot happens in 20 years! While Ashleigh & Shannon weren't attached at the hip for every minute of those years - they experienced so many major life moments together, and always found their way back to their friendship when it drifted.

Both women found a love of photography on their own, and eventually the stars aligned and the two decided to pursue their artistic passions - together.

“Ashleigh and Shannon were absolutely fantastic to work with. They made me feel beautiful and confident throughout the whole process. They talked me through all the poses and we had so much fun during the entire shoot. They really tailor the session to meet your needs and vibe in terms of atmosphere, music, and direction. It was such a pleasure working with these wonderful ladies and I am so happy with the results! The pictures turned out beautifully!”
