Karah Sambuco

Karah is the founder of Illustrate Sexy, the Ohio Valley’s Premiere Boudoir Studio. It was her dream to create an experience that would make women feel gorgeous. With the development of Illustrate Sexy she has done just that. Through her photos she has empowered women and helped them recognize their unique beauty. When asked why she wanted to create Illustrate Sexy, Karah responded, “Because they’re all beautiful, they just don’t know it.”

Now, one woman at a time, she’s driving that point home!
