Why boudoir?

Boudoir photography is about more than just sexy images. It's a lesson in self love!

As women, we face so many expectations of perfection that it can be difficult to keep up. And we spend a LOT of time scrutinizing ourselves.

A boudoir photo shoot is the perfect opportunity to take a day off from the mundane, to play dress-up, to celebrate your body, and to invest in yourself - who you are right here, right now. Your body is a vessel that you must learn to love; after all, you only get one in this lifetime!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Boudoir Photography for?

Boudoir is for EVERY woman.

Whether you're completely confident and want to celebrate your sensual self, or have complicated feelings about your body and want to begin the journey of self love and acceptance, boudoir is for you!

But I don't know how to pose!

That's what I'm here for! I've been a photographer for over 7 years and know just how to use light and posing to capture your most radiant and beautiful self! I will coach you from your fingertips to your toes by saying things like: "Bring that shoulder towards me, slide your chin forward a bit, now look up at me with your eyes, put your hand here," etc. I'm also not afraid to get down and demonstrate!

Will you photoshop my ___? I have cellulite, acne, etc...

Every image you purchase will be aesthetically retouched. Temporary blemishes will be removed, some lines or bumps will be straightened, but I will not contort your body because I want you to see yourself exactly as you are: perfectly imperfect.

I'd like to lose x-amount of weight first.

Okay listen, I'm a plus size girl myself, I get it. HOWEVER. You don't need to lose weight for this experience! Boudoir is about embracing and celebrating the body you have right now. Your body is a vessel that gets you through life - every dimple, every freckle, every stretch mark tells your story! You are safe with me, I understand the hesitations- but I believe that all of us deserve to see how bad ass we really are!

Do my photos have to be on the internet?

Not at all. Every woman you see in my portfolios have given me written permission to share the images. We can discuss this thoroughly during your ordering session.

"To me, clothing is a form of self-expression. There are hints about who you are in what you wear." -Marc Jacobs

HOW DO YOU DREAM OF BEING PHOTOGRAPHED?

Remember, this is your chance to be a model for a day. A Princess. A Siren. A Goddess! A Bad Ass Babe. You can wear up to 4 outfits for your shoot, but feel free to bring more. With the chance to wear several different outfits, you can aim for a variety of styles. Try to bring outfits that are unique in color and/or mood.

Bonus: Once you book your session, you'll have access to my super helpful Lingerie Guide to help you plan your wardrobe.

What makes you feel sexy?

Not every girl enjoys sporting lingerie. If that's the case for you, brainstorm about what DOES make you feel good, and go from there.

Things To Consider, Part 1.

SOMETHING LIGHT AND ETHEREAL. Bring something in a light shade of blush, nude, cream, or white.

SOMETHING DARK AND SMOLDERING. Black, Navy, or Charcoal will all work well.

THINK SEXY. You can be an "understated sexy" or a more "overt sexy" - it's all about what you're comfortable with.

SOMETHING EPIC. This photo shoot is the perfect opportunity to wear something completely wild - I don't mean freaky, I just mean to think big. You might even rent, borrow, or custom make your dream outfit.

Things to Consider, Part 2.

FIT YOUR FORM. Fitted clothing that shows your shape works best for photographs. This applied to any body type. Outfits should hug your curves, especially along your top half. (Loose, flowing skirts are fabulous as long as your bodice or top is snug.)

THINK TEXTURE. Sumptuous textures like lace, chiffon, bead-work, or embroidery lend a rich, tactile element to your photos. Avoid high-contrast patterns or prints, which are distracting. Logos or graphics are definite "don'ts."

CONSIDER NECKLINES. Certain necklines can evoke different moods. Mixing up necklines will add variety to your shots, so try not to bring all of one style. Certain necklines can evoke different moods.

Getting Ready for Your Photo Shoot

Before

Familiarize yourself with studio policies (see bottom of this presentation). Email Jen with any and all questions you may have! Choose at least 4 outfits for your photo shoot. Don't forget sexy shoes (if that's your jam, if not, totally okay)! Stretch for 20 minutes a day leading up to your session - you won't regret it! Practice facial expressions in the mirror to feel more confident. I'll be coaching you every step of the way, but hey, this is fun right?! AVOID TANNING- ESPECIALLY SPRAY TANNING!

Pro Tip: Polish jewels that will be worn during your session!

On the Day Of

Get a good night's rest! Consider a light yoga routine to help relax your muscles and boost your energy! Eat a light, but filling meal beforehand. Do not plan any chores or errands on your session day. This day is about YOU taking a day off and getting pampered, so take advantage! Wear clear deodorant and loose-fitted clothing. Arrive on time. Have fun!!

Pro Tip: Make sure to book a night out afterwards to continue the celebration, as you will totally look & feel like a million bucks!
