About Me

How does a Photographer, in a small city of Fallbrook, turn hundreds of women from lacking confidence to feeling empowered and full of confidence?

Hello friends, I am Anastasia. 

I’m about to share with you the secret to self-confidence I’ve discovered after being a photographer for over a decade.

After photographing hundreds of women for boudoir/glamour/lifestyle portraits, I’ve found one thing most women have in common before their photo shoot.

Most women show up to the shoot thinking they won’t look as good as the women on my website, that they need to lose 10 pounds first, that they’re “not photogenic,” or that they won’t love the photos of themselves. This is common, sadly, most women don’t believe in their beauty….yet.

I’ve also found one thing every woman I’ve photographed has in common at the end of their photoshoot….

… complete self-confidence.

So what is it about a boudoir shoot that can change so many women’s perspectives of themselves?

I believe the answer is: investing in yourself, stepping out of your comfort zone, and seeing yourself through somebody else’s eyes (and lens).

In the beginning of each of my photo shoots, I show my client one of the first photos I take from the back of my digital camera. This photo is unretouched, unedited, just straight out of camera.

I’ve had reactions ranging from disbelief, to thrilled shrieks, to happy tears.

This is the first moment of them believing in their beauty.

This truly is life changing stuff.

After this initial step my clients only gain more and more confidence throughout the shoot, it’s a complete blast.

This is what I Do and I love it: I help women of any age and body type see themselves confidently beautiful right now at this very moment.

You won’t find perfection by losing a few more pounds or trying to hide each imperceptible blemish. You are perfectly beautiful now! And I am here to help you see it.

I feel really blessed to do what I love and help women believe in their beauty and empower them with confidence, because Being More Confident Is Directly Related To Your Happiness. Would you agree?

What Our Customers Are Saying

“The experience and the final photos took my breath away and everybody’s who I showed them to!!! At 62 I am happy that I now have this on film to demark this period of my life”

Joan Tryba

Boudoir Client

“I worked with Anastasia for a pregnancy/boudoir shoot. It exceeded my expectations. I am not a photogenic person, but she somehow captured the natural beauty in me and it wasn’t contrived. We had a video created (another non-comfort zone for me) and everyone that I show it to winds up in tears! Anastasia puts her heart and sole into every moment during her work! Thanks again!”


Boudoir Client

“My experience with Anastasia was AMAZING!  I put it off for so long as I wasn’t proud of my body. When I finally decided to do the shoot I was still nervous. From the beginning Anastasia helped me see the things I liked about myself again and help BOOST MY CONFIDENCE. During the shoot I felt relaxed and comfortable. She took the time to take BEAUTIFUL pictures and never made me feel uncomfortable because I’m a plus size figure. I had my doubts but I loved it and would do it again! Thank you so much!!!!”


Boudoir Client

“I had a FANTASTIC experience with Anastasia. It was so fun to be GLAMOROUS and have a day about just me. I felt PAMPERED the whole time and left the photo shoot walking on air. When it was time to review the photos I wanted them all! The end result is completely wonderful and great quality. I take a look whenever I am having a low confidence day to help BOOST me back up. I highly recommend”.


Boudoir Client

“I had a great time during the shoot. I definitely felt COMFORTABLE and LOVED the final pictures. I have recommended you to several friends”.


Boudoir Client

“Had the time of my life letting Anastasia MacGillivray make magic with my photoshoot! Thank you so much for pampering me and making this process so much fun!! You are amazing, Anastasia MacGillivray!! I cant believe that I had the problem of TOO MANY great photos to choose from! a true master of your craft. Anastasia MacGillivray was the magician behind the camera who captured how I feel inside. What a talent she is!! XOXO”


Lifestyle Photography client, Sherri Starr Wellness

“I did a photo session with Anastasia Mac Boudoir Photography after giving birth, and Anastasia was great at making me feel comfortable not only in front of the camera, but comfortable in my own pre-baby skin! She has a real eye for capturing gorgeous images, and she helped coach me in how to move and showed me what poses and angles were the most flattering for me. In the end, I loved the original images, and then the final retouched images were of the same quality that you would see in a high-end glossy magazine. I was fortunate enough to be able to work with Anastasia a couple more times after that, and she was consistently wonderful, professional, and just plain fun to be around.”


Boudoir Client

“It helped me to both restore and maintain a positive self image and see myself as still being sexy even after child birth. Anastasia was great to work with and instilled tremendous CONFIDENCE in me & was a GREAT COACH, but I was blown away by just how BEAUTIFUL the images were! They looked like images you would see in a glossy, high-end magazine”


Boudoir Client

“My session with you was one of the BEST things I have ever done for myself”.


Boudoir Client

“What an AMAZING experience I had. This is nothing like getting your pictures done at the mall. I was honored to work with Anastasia, a one of a kind photographer”.


Glamour Client

“I was absolutely THRILLED with the pictures. I felt nervous at the start but soon warmed up and started to feel sexy even. I still cannot believe that they are of me. I look sexy and CONFIDENT and I loved it all. Keep up the great work as you gave me confidence to feel sexy”


Boudoir Client

“I enjoyed everything. The photos blew me away. It was such a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. I would do it again in the heartbeat!”


Boudoir Client

“Being photographed by Anastasia was an experience I will never forget. She made it SPECIAL from start to finish. She created a Pinterest board just for me, so I could experiment with outfits and hairstyles prior to the session. And her hairstylist/makeup artist worked with me to produce just the right “look.” No detail was left to chance. She took the time to capture the TRUE ESSENCE OF MY BEAUTY. Of course the photographs are FANTASTIC but more important are the intangibles. I left Anastasia FEELING BEAUTIFUL, and with a RENEWED sense of SELF-CONFIDENCE and APPRECIATION OF MY WOMANHOOD. I recommend the Anastasia experience to any woman who wants to recapture her inner and outer beauty, BOOST her SELF-CONFIDENCE, or create a truly UNIQUE GIFT for her significant other”.


Boudoir Client

“QUALITY!!! The shoot was comfortable and fun, and the resulting images, and album are of the highest quality. This has been one of the most REWARDING things I have done for myself and my husband in years. Thank you for a WONDERFUL experience”.
