About Us

Located in Fairport, NY, Boudoir Studio 6201 is a branch of A Touch of Elegance Photography.

Our mission is to create an unforgettable boudoir experience for EVERY woman who walks in our door and present her with a selection of fine quality art pieces to preserve her gorgeous images. 

This experience is made possible through the collaboration of our awesome team:


MEET ASIF

Asif-Ali-1a.jpg

My name is Asif Ali and I want you to think of me as YOUR personal photographer. I have had the honor and privilege of creating intimate portraits for over 700 women from the greater Rochester, Syracuse, Buffalo areas and beyond since 2010. 

Some of my favorite things to do are playing with my 3 beautiful children, staying up late with my lovely wife of almost 15 years, and drinking americanos from The Daily Grind Coffeeshop (to help cope with staying up too late!).

I also thoroughly enjoy what I do- it never gets old seeing the transformation that takes place in each client I get to work with. It is my conviction that you being "photogenic" has nothing to do with you, it has everything to do with me. Over the years, most of my clients have never done a photo session like this and are very nervous about their ability to pose and look sexy. 

If you feel this way, be assured that I will coach you every step of the way, directing everything from the expression on your face to how you point your toes. And fair warning, your session will feel more like a yoga/pilates workout than a portrait session! So rather than feeling nervous or awkward, you'll be thinking to yourself, "Take the picture, already, Asif before I kick you in the face!" :)  But you'll be able to relax too as there will be plenty of corny jokes and goofy moments to laugh about throughout the session. It will be a blast :)


MEET NICKI

My name is Nicki Ali, I am Asif's wife and a stay-at-home mom. Over the years I have filled many different roles at the studio and enjoyed every one of them. 

These days I spend most of my time chasing our 3 beautiful children around the house all day, which I thoroughly enjoy doing;  I also love the moment when Asif comes home to stay up late with me, and I, too, cannot get enough of a coffee fix from The Daily Grind Coffeeshop :)

I have the privilege of walking you through your boudoir experience - I'll get your session scheduled, answer all your questions, and (my favorite part), I'll get to show you your breath-taking images and help you select your favorites. It is such a thrill to see the reaction each woman has when viewing her images for the first time (and the experience is doubly-thrilling when her loving significant other joins her for this part!). 

I am so proud of our products and I will work with you to help you decide what will be the best fit for your images and your budget. It is such a fun process!


MEET ANDREA

My name is Andrea Nicklaw and I am so excited to say that I am the studio's female photographer!

I have been working with Asif as his assistant for the last 2 years. We always joked about "When was I going to pick up the camera?!" Well, I finally did! Asif has been working with me and teaching me all there is to know about boudoir photography! I am excited and eager to be on this journey and I look forward to having you be a part of it.

Also, I personally know exactly how you're feeling because before I began working for Asif I did 3 boudoir sessions with him! I felt a mixture of nerves and excitement walking into my first session. However, nerves began to dissipate as I got pampered during the hair and make up process. Once the session got going, I began to feel quite confident because the step by step directions from Asif were easy to follow.  As I walked out the door I was already planning my next session in my head! When I saw my pictures it only confirmed the fact that I was coming back for more!

Fast forward a few years from that first session and here I am assisting/photographing your first or maybe your third session!! ;)

Just like my experience, each of our clients goes through a transformation, starting out as unsure and maybe nervous, to feeling empowered and confident at the end. I absolutely love being a part of that process!

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter. Our daughter is almost one year old, so these days we spend our time in amazement, watching her grow and learn new things every day! I come from a household that enjoys cooking, so big family dinners are a weekly occurrence. When I am not spending time with my husband and duaghter, I am usually hanging out with my 2 younger sisters (who, by the way, have also done boudoir sessions with Asif!).

Hair and Make Up Stylists

In addition to the 3 of us, we work with a select few amazing hair and makeup artists who are true connoisseurs of beauty. They will use their expertise to glamorize you for your session. We strongly recommend that you have hair and makeup done with us. You will be so glad that you did and you'll have a wonderful time as you get pampered! 


Lets do this!

Our clients who trust us enough to be photographed by us expose more than just their bodies; by allowing us into their lives, they expose their heart and soul. It is a joy to hear their life stories, to see the transforming power of a boudoir photography session impact their lives. What a privilege that we get  to play a small part in that journey!!

We look forward to meeting you and becoming a part of your journey! Let's do this!
