It's whatever you're comfortable with!!

Since my last post I've been getting a lot of inquiries and general questions about booking a Simply Fabulous shoot. So I thought I'd answer some of those questions in the next couple of blogs and.

The first question that came up was, "Are my photos going to be posted online for others to see?" The answer is "No," unless you have given me signed consent to use your images. I 100% believe in confidentiality. So although I would love to blog about every shoot and show off fabulous photos of all my clients, I completely understand if you'd rather keep your session private.  I'm OK with that! I've also had women ask if they can go by a pseudonym rather than their own, and I'm fine with that too. It's whatever you're comfortable with!

Now, check out more photos from the Boudoir Divas workshop I attended last month. One of my favorite parts of the workshop was being able to work with the models 1-on-1. I can't say it enough, I had an amazing time at the workshop and it really did push me to get my boudoir business going. Thank you Boudoir Divas!!

Simply Fabulous is Officially Here!!!! - San Francisco Bay Area Boudoir Photographer

Hello Everyone!! 

I am super excited to announce that Simply Fabulous by Delumpa Photography is officially here!! My love for boudoir photography actually began a few years ago when I was a fiancee trying to decide what gift to get my soon to be hubby.  I came across boudoir photos by The Boudoir Divas and instantly fell in love with their work.  I also realized they were based out of San Diego, so I searched here in the Bay Area to find a photographer that could do similar work.  Surprisingly, I couldn't find a photographer who's style I liked or one that I would feel comfortable with.  Let's be honest, I'm not a size 2 so I was self-conscious.  

Fast forward to now, with our own photography business -- I told my hubby that I would shoot boudoir style photography because I wanted to give every woman the opportunity to feel simply fabulous about themselves. It doesn't matter your age, your size, your shape, or your color -- I believe every woman is FABULOUS inside and out

With that said, I decided to learn from the best and last month I flew myself to San Diego to attend a Boudoir Divas workshop.  I had such an amazing time and I know some of you have been waiting to see the photos I took.  So for the next few days I will be releasing photos from the workshop of models that I was fortunate to work with.  Please enjoy and send me an email ( if you'd like to schedule a Simply Fabulous shoot!!
