Empowering Boudoir Photography | Mateus Studios | Coquitlam BC


You are an f'ing radiant work of art!
It's time to celebrate all of you with an act of radical self love!

Are you ready?

I believe when you tap into your vulnerability, your confidence, and your strength, you glow.

It’s in your facial expressions, your body language, your movements, and it’s captured in your photos. It’s pure magic, and I’m honoured to be the one to show this to you. Hi Friend! We are so excited to invite you to Boldly Embrace You though our 100% personalized, fun and laidback Vancouver boudoir and intimate portrait photoshoot experience. It’s time to get you on the top of your to do list! It’s the perfect time to book a Boudoir Photography & Intimate Portrait Experience when:

  • You want to remember who you are at this moment in time.
  • You forget what it’s like to feel amazing AF!
  • You want to celebrate a milestone birthday.
  • You’ve achieved a big goal and want to celebrate it.
  • You’ve overcome a hard thing, and want to honour that.

We strive to be a safe space for those that self-identify as women, which includes both cis and transgender women. We also want you to know that our studio WILL NOT tolerate: racism, sexism, homophobia, fatphobia, ableism, and/or transphobia. PERIOD.

"To see yourself in a different way and reconnect to a part of yourself that is often overlooked. Michele makes the experience so special; it's a ceremony, a safe and magical space to celebrate and luxuriate in your physical self."

a luxe boudoir photography experience
for the modern women

We’re not going to pretend like makeup and great lighting is all it takes to reverse a lifetime of fighting against the not-good-enoughs. Friend, this self-love shit is hard! But a soul-bearing, confidence-building, just-for-you photo session is an incredibly powerful start! And this little spark of feeling something new inside of yourself? Who knows – it just might light a fire. Our Boudoir Photoshoot Experiences are intimate, women-centered portrait sessions that give you space to explore all the different sides of yourself. They’re all about celebrating you for you, because you deserve it!  Mateus Studios Boudoir Photo Experiences are about more than just your body. They’re about embracing yourself fully, in body, mind & soul. By stripping away the should’s and the supposed to’s, you’re revealing the most vulnerable, strong, and beautiful version of you. By capturing that version of you with photos, you get to keep you close and call on yourself whenever you need to. We welcome all people who self-identify as women – all races, all ages (okay all that are 19+), all body types, all backgrounds. We are here to celebrate YOU, not judge you. This is a safe space that we can’t wait to share with you!



Using the art of photography, I empower women to feel alive and energized through a radical celebration of self.


To provide a safe space where you can express yourself without judgement. To be your cheerleader, celebrating who you are now and honouring the journey that got you here. To fill you with high vibes and remind you that you are an f’ing fabulous & fierce queen!

I like to call myself an Empowerment Artist who uses my camera as a tool to support women to feel confident on and off camera. I am Boudoir & Intimate Portrait Photographer located in Coquitlam, BC, 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver. In my boudoir photography sessions, I get to hold up a mirror and remind my clients of their radiance, their sensuality, and their power.

My studio is a space for accepting yourself, respecting yourself, and feelin’ yourself! You’ll be blown away by the amount of confidence that comes out of this cozy, unsuspecting little corner of Coquitlam.

I invite you to embrace yourself fully. To celebrate your body and your story. To honour the women you are today and the experiences that made you become her, no matter what life is throwing at you right now, and no matter where you are on our journey to self-love.

When you’re ready to hit "pause" on the negative self-talk, come over! Put on something that makes you feel like Beyoncé, get your hair done, and just take yourself in for a second. You’ll be blown away by what you see!
