Please excuse me while I get real for a minute…
It’s been one of those days, actually, one of those months. I’ve just been feeling really down on myself, not liking what I see in the mirror, yada yada yada. Self esteem is something I’ve struggled with for my entire life. This is one of the reasons I do what I do with boudoir photography. I know how much low self esteem can affect different aspects of your life. It’s such a gift to be able to give women that little boost of confidence and let them know just how beautiful they are. These past few weeks when I’ve been down have been really getting to me, I’ve been in a bad mood, irritable towards Max, not able to focus on tasks, etc. To be frank, I’ve just felt like crap. And tired.
“This shoot and the photographers single handedly made me feel like I was a work of art! Luckily they captured these artful and beautiful moments so I can share it with someone special! It’s not just a session that the only result is beautiful photographs… It’s a experience that gives you enough self confidence to last a lifetime!” -Lacy
Katy applied for our model call. In her words, it was a “what the hell, it couldn’t hurt” kinda thing. Later she said that she didn’t expect to get picked at all (which is what everyone has said so far, lol). It was an immediate yes for us. Her reasoning sold us completely on the idea and we wanted to help her in her mission to educate people that just because she’s in a wheelchair doesn’t mean she’s not sexy. She is HELLA sexy! As shown in the photos. 😉 Continue reading
“Oh my God” she said, then a sharp intake of air. A sniffle from Max. I knew the waterworks were knocking on my eyelids. Karen had her hands to her face almost the whole time she was seeing her photos for the first time. As she wiped her eyes my tears spilled over. I glanced at Max to see him wiping away tears as well.

Meet Bobbi, she’s “a wife, mom, and a high school math teacher, so I am very, very busy. We also have a farm, so I also keep busy taking care of the animals.” She did her session as a gift to her husband, he’s an offshore worker and they spend a lot of time apart,so her session for him was a way to keep their intimacy strong. She had been wanting to do a boudoir session for two years!!! It was our before and after shots that finally made her do her own session because it showed her “how they can look with real people”.
I’m going to be completely honest here, doing Bethany’s session was just as nerve wracking for us as it was for her. The reason she was having boudoir photos done was because she was getting married. We have clients like that regularly, but the difference here is Continue reading
No matter what job it is that you work, or what you do in life, from time to time everyone experiences getting caught in a rut. Well, Max and I recently found ourselves in that rut. It happens to the best of us, yes, but we’re not allowed to not rock all the time! We have a job to do and we take it very seriously…. making women feel sexy! We were getting bored with our studio and shooting the same stuff all the time. We needed a change, some inspiration, that little UMPH that sparks the life into us and makes us do what we do.

Some of our clients manage to make their way into our heart, where they will always have a place. Stefanie has touched us in a way that will will never forget. I’ll let her tell the story:
Dear Jen and Max, Continue reading
This is Emily. She is an absolutely amazing person and probably one of my favorite people I’ve ever met. She’s a full time mom to her adorable little girl, Emma. Sometimes being a mom can take over a woman’s time leaving no time for herself. Emily came to us for her 30th birthday. She wanted to feel beautiful again, and she wanted to scratch off a boudoir photo shoot from her bucket list. She also wanted to give her husband an album as a gift, so it was a win win win situation.
Here’s what Emily had to say about her session,
