Rochester NY Boudoir

About Us

Located in Fairport, NY, The Boudoir Studio 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:


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 800 women from the greater Rochester, Syracuse, Buffalo areas and beyond since 2010. 

Some of my favorite things to do are playing with my 4 beautiful children, staying up late with my lovely wife of almost 17 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 :)


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 4 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!


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 3 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 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 2 young kids.  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 little ones, 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!


Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions

Where will the session take place?

The session will take place within the privacy of our studio located in Fairport, NY. If you are interested in having your session take place at another location, please contact us directly to make arrangements.

May I bring a friend along?

Absolutely! You can bring a friend along who will be supportive and encouraging, to accompany you. During camera time I ask that your friend stay in the waiting area to avoid distraction. However, we do not allow your significant other to be at the studio during your shoot.

Can my friend take pictures during the shoot?

No. Due to the nature of the shoot and the contract we are under with our clients, we ask that no other type of camera be allowed during the shoot, including cell phone cameras.

Who will be present during my session?

Depending on which session you purchase and which add ons you choose to get, there could be up to 3 people present at the studio for your session: the photographer, Asif, (present at every shoot, of course), a personal assistant (present from beginning to end of camera time), and/or a hair and makeup stylist (present before camera time to get you prepped).

Each session is fully customizable to allow for the most comfortable experience for you: if you prefer to have as few people there as possible to eliminate distractions and not be concerned about so many “eyes” on you, you can choose to just have Asif be present. If you would feel more comfortable having a female personal assistant present who will help you throughout the shoot with posing, outfits, etc., then you can add on a personal assistant for a nominal fee. Just let us know!

Are you sure boudoir is for me?

Of course it's for YOU! We firmly believe that boudoir photography is for all women regardless of shape, size or age.

Will you use my images on your website?

Your privacy is our priority. We do not post images online without written permission from our clients. If you'd like us to post your images on our website or blog, we would be thrilled to do it but you will have to sign a release form giving us your written permission to do so.

I'm shy of the camera and don't really know how to pose... Will you help me?

No need to worry. Almost every client feels nervous. We will guide you throughout the entire session. You don't need to know how to pose and you won't be asked to perform. We will show you how to pose and display the right expression. We know how to capture you in a way that would be the most flattering to your body type.

Do you photoshop?

Yes we do. After the session we select the best images for you to view and perform artistic enhancements and subtle retouches to those images. Our goal is to present the best YOU without making you look like someone else. Additional photoshop requests can be discussed at your photo-shop appointment (additional charges may apply).

Can I do my own hair & make up?

Though we do not recommend it, you certainly can do your own hair and makeup. We offer competitive rates for our own team of professionals who know exactly how to enhance your beauty and make your features sparkle in just the right way!

Do people ever book a session as a gift to themselves?

Absolutely! Many of our clients do a session as gift to themselves.

Can I reschedule my session?

You can certainly reschedule. We completely understand that at times things come up and you need to change your session date. However, since we do reserve that time just for you we ask that you give us at least 2 days notice. If you forget about your appointment or you need to reschedule more than 3 times, you'll need to pay the deposit again to reschedule.

What is your refund policy?

Due the custom nature of boudoir photography, all fees and payments for any sessions, services and products are non refundable.


Right now! Call or email us anytime to book your session! (585.421.9650 - hello@boudoirstudio6201.com) We require a non-refundable deposit to book, which is 1/3rd of the total cost. You can also choose to pay in full at the time of the booking.

Please keep in mind that we do book very fast and are usually fully booked at least 2 weeks out. Also, please allow 6-10 weeks for the whole process to take place - from your session to having the finished product in hand. We hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Asif and Nicki,

I can’t express in words how happy I am with my book. It was a wonderful experience and you really made me feel beautiful and special :) Everyone I have shown the book to absolutely loves it! You guys are a great team- best of luck to you in your future adventures- and if you’d like to use any of my images on your website or for promotions please feel free to.

Thank you again,
— Cassie
I can’t thank Asif, and his assistant enough for making me feel so comfortable during my session, and his wife Nicki for putting me at ease prior. I left feeling gorgeous and more confident than ever before! This is definitely something I would never do, but wanted something special to give my future husband on our wedding day. I saw the images today and could not be happier, in fact, I upgraded to a bigger book because I had difficulty narrowing it down. I would also recommend the hair and makeup by Shoronda! She knew exactly how to apply the makeup to look best in the lights. THANK YOU to all of you!!
— Miss L

I just wanted to send a quick message to tell you how amazing my boudoir shoot was yesterday.
I came in incredibly nervous, but thanks to Asif and his incredible energy and friendliness, all those
nerves soon disappeared. He made me feel  beautiful and incredibly empowered as a woman, and
brought out a side of me I had no idea existed!  Even a full day later, I am still feeling amazing. I truly
think that every woman should do a boudoir shoot atleast once in her life, and without a doubt they
NEED to do it with Asif. His energy is infectious and his talent is undeniable. He has a true gift. I cannot
wait to see my finished photos!! Thank you again for such an unforgettable experience. :)


One word describes the images of my wife......AMAZING!!!!!

She surprised me on my 40th Birthday with images from your studio and I was completely blown away!!!!!

My wife is absolutely beautiful and I didn't think it was possible, but the images from her shoot  brought out even more beauty!  They were sexy, provocative, sophisticated, and most of all brought out an  inner beauty that I find so appealing.   We are so impressed with your work and have recommended your studio to many of our friends.  Thank you again for an amazing job!!!



It's nearly 11pm and I cannot stop thinking about the incredible session I had with you today. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable and allowing me to come out of my shell to be sexy, classy, and feel really special. Perhaps I've felt that way in my life before, but never like this. I had so much fun and cannot WAIT to see the photos. I keep going over the poses in my head and re-living how it felt to look like that! I really believe that you have to get out of your comfort zone to learn and grow - I totally was today and it was amazing. I truly hope every woman can have an opportunity as special as I did today. For me this opportunity was a gift.

My sincerest thanks,

Lindsey :)

Thanks for a great photo session that was huge fun, thanks to Nicki for helping pick the pics, and this nice layout, Asif.  You folks are easy to work with!

Hey there!

I didn't get a chance following my session to properly thank you guys for the most AMAZING experience! I had a boudoir shoot from a Living Social deal Saturday the 14th, and I just can't tell you enough how amazing it was. I was worried and definitely a bit nervous, but everyone was so welcoming and friendly. Plus the energy level and atmosphere was so homey yet exciting, fun & vibrant - I felt completely at ease and comfortable, which I didn't think would be possible. I'm so grateful for the experience and I can't wait to see the photos!! You guys are truly THE BEST!!!!!! 

Thank you again so much for everything! :)

- Diana

Asif, Your work is amazing! I absolutely LOVE IT!! ... Your work is awesome and I will spread the word about your business!

Thanks so much, Diana

Nicki and Asif,

I just wanted to let you guys know that I absolutely love my pictures. You guys are amazing :). Thanks again!

- Breonna

Dear Nicki, Asif and Lisa,

Thank you SO much for making my Boudoir Photography experience SUCH fun - it was unique! 

You are a great team, very professional and very likable - the perfect mix!



I just wanted to take a minute to tell you what an amazing time I had yesterday! Your photos made me look so sexy, which I dont usually see myself as. Lisa made me up perfectly! You both did such a great job and I couldn't be happier with the way things went. This is and was one of the most adventurous and fun things I have experienced in my life thus far. Thanks a million and I can't wait to see the pictures! 


I had a great time on Friday!  Thanks so much for all of your hard work and taking so much time while getting some great pictures!  I am SO excited to see them all and put together an album for Ryan.  He is seriously going to die.  I'm keeping him guessing as to why it was necessary for me to take his hockey jersey.  He is so confused and I love it.  The surprise will totally be worth it!

- Becca

Asif made me feel comfortable doing something I never thought I would have had the courage to do!! The result exceeded my expectations!

Asif was very interested in what I wanted from the shoot and the final touch-ups.  I felt as though he sincerely cared about what was important to me not only in the style of photos but also the experience.  The photos turned out great and my husband loves them!!  It was the perfect anniversary gift that we will both enjoy for years to come!

Thanks Again Asif.


I saw the ad/posting for the contest for the Valentine's contest and thought I should enter. I would have never even thought to do something like this! My overall experience was AWESOME!I felt very comfortable with you and Nicki - even though I am very reserved typically.The images turned out fantastic! My hubby LOVED them.I'm a very private person so only a few people know that I did the images - but I would recommend you to any of those select few people who know that I had the pictures taken, lol. I was extremely nervous about the whole thing, but after communicating with you, I started to feel much better about the process and walked in feeling pretty confident.What did I have to lose, right?
