This complete stunner came to shoot with us in July as a gift to herself and her hubby! Now that she’s in her 40’s she’s feeling more confident and loving herself more and a boudoir session was the perfect way to commemorate time in her life. She knocked her session out of the park and we absolutely adored having her in the studio!
Here’s what Miss J had to say about her session with us: “I had been planning on doing a short for some time but never managed to make the time until now. I just MADE the time. I feel like I have the most natural confidence in my body at this stage in my life than I ever have before. While I have always recognized how important it is to have good self image, I feel like I walk the walk more as I get older. The thought of finding outfits and doing the shoot made me feel so excited! Spending time just for me, to feel sexy and confident in the woman that I am right now-today-it was exhilarating! While I felt the overall experience was amazing (they guide you through every step of the way with emails giving advice on what to bring, how to prepare and great insight into posing so I felt prepared when I arrived at the studio), the absolute BEST part from start to finish, was spending time in the studio with Jen and Kelly! They are both amazing and everything feels very natural and relaxed. They focus completely on making you feel at ease while bringing out the most beautiful version of yourself for the camera. Walking into the studio in my civvies and walking out feeling like a supermodel was so invigorating! This is more than a photo shoot, this is an experience never to be forgotten!
When I was done, I not only felt like my most confident self, I felt like I had shared an amazing moment with these beautiful women-a million thanks to both of you for ensuring I take that time to focus on me!!”
“As women, we spend too much time picking ourselves apart, more than anyone else possibly could. I have always loved the way you celebrate women and their beauty while creating personalized images for each woman through your lens. You are extremely approachable and have great communication during the shoot, which made it so easy to just leave it in your hands and let you work your magic. Doing a boudoir shoot is something we do for ourselves to remind us that we are beautiful just the way we are, and that its ok to make ourselves vulnerable to see our softer or sexier side regardless of age, size, or anything else we let stand in the way. I love that your shoots reflect that. Investing the the time to embrace our own femininity is worth every penny AND every feeling of insecurity because you can bet your bottom dollar you’ll have a jump in your step after your shoot and it will carry over to your ‘everyday’ life. While it may seem easier to make excuses about why we aren’t ready, just do it! When you see Jen’s shots of you, you’ll wish you had done it way sooner and will be planning your next one! It’s not a luxury, it’s something EVERY woman should do for themselves sooner rather than later.
I felt so relaxed, confident and sexy, and the time just flew by!”
“Kelly did an amazing job on my hair and makeup. She made sure everything looked absolutely perfect while making me feel completely relaxed before the shoot!”
“I just wanted to message you again and tell you how much I love my images! I’m sure you know I feel more comfortable behind the brushes than in front of the camera….but you made me feel super relaxed and I look Freaking. Awesome.I can’t stop looking at the pictures…they look like me, but really sexy me. You know I’ve always been a fan and love the way you shoot and work with your clients, but this was truly an amazing experience. Seeing the pictures brought me right back to feeling beautiful for me, and on my own terms. As I said to you before, I’m more comfortable with my body now in my 40’s than I’ve ever been and while I think this is a great experience for women of any age, doing something like this at this time in my life is a great reminder for me-not only to document how I looked at that point in my life, but to remind me the importance of slowing down, taking time to do something for myself, and setting aside the mountain of things we let distract us from ensuring we carve out a few precious moments to be beautiful.
You totally rocked it, like I knew you would!!!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!”
