Marathon Questions & Answers

Marathon Sessions

It’s been a minute since I’ve run a marathon, so here’s all the information! Because I’ve had to cut my hours I’ve been booking on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I know it can be difficult to get away for 3-5 hours on a weekday. These marathon sessions give you the opportunity to experience the fun and get some great photos in a shorter amount of time! You’re getting a lot of bang for your buck with a marathon!

Why Should You Do A Session?

I’ve heard over and over that the main reason most of you have never have booked is the issue of confidence. I hear you. Trust me, I know how it is to feel like I’m not worthy of taking the time and spending the money to do something for myself. I do this so you can see that you ARE worth it and having these photos will go a long way towards reminding you what you can look like and how you can feel if you give yourself permission.

How to Book :

  • Email me to secure a slot
  • Pay your invoice to to secure your spot
  • Boom, done! Once payment is made you’ll receive emails on more specific details and other info to help prepare

IF you don’t get a slot for this boudoir marathon, I may be hosting Halloween sessions in October!

OR you can always book a normal boudoir session (either at your home or the studio).

Some day …

Wisconsin Boudoir - Just Do It

I’ve been thinking about the phrase “some day” a lot lately. As in: “I’m gonna do that some day, when I …”

Have more money
Lose some weight
Grow my hair out
Have the time
Get my shit together
Get braver

Why is it that we manage to have money for other people, but not for ourselves? Why do we think we have to lose weight to do ANYTHING? What if I look better with short hair? Time is like money: we make time for others, why not for ourselves? Getting your shit together is a never ending process, girlie and getting brave is a matter of perception.

Now I find myself at the age of 60 having NOT done so many things(and not being ABLE to do others). “Some day” has turned into “NEVER” and I’ll never get those days or opportunities back.

I have missed out on so many amazing things in my life but the best things I’ve done, I’ve done scared.
Make better choices than I did. Just do it.

You Don’t Have To Be Naked To Be Sexy

Green Bay Wisconsin Boudoir

The media – social media in particular – has taught women that in order to be sexy they have to be naked (or nearly).

Sexy is making him wonder, giving him something to hope for, even if he’s seen it before. You want him to wonder what else there is to see and to touch, not throw it in his face.

To Tan Or Not To Tan

Appleton Wisconsin Boudoir

I have spent years editing boudoir photos and I feel like I know better than spray tan salons how your tan will look in your photos. There are more “don’ts” than “dos” when it comes to spray tanning before your session.

While I do edit to even out skin tones it is nearly impossible to eliminate tan lines, flaky skin or overly orange skin and you WILL be charged extra for the time it takes. Sure, I can edit your images to even out the skin tone, but why on earth would you pay to FIX something that you can avoid?

If you’ve made up your mind that absolutely MUST tan, please leave at least three days between your spray tan and your boudoir session.

SuperHero Boudoir

MissJ is my little superhero. She did this session as a gift to herself and she deserved it,

A big thank you to her for allowing me to share these shots from her studio session. Not only did she rock her session, but she inspired me to finish the wings I’d been putting off for about a year!

Permission has been granted by the client to post these images.

Perceptions – Who Are You?

Perceptions are amazing. In this day and age of “politically correct” thinking and the public’s outcry of “I am NOT judgemental!” I’ve found that people in general are more judgemental and women are MOST judgemental of themselves.

This first full session with Studio Rep Emily got us talking about first impressions, other peoples’ opinions and how we judge ourselves.

On any given day other people see us as we are THAT day, whether we are dressed for work, dressed for gardening or dressed for a quick run to the gas station for a gallon of milk at six o’clock in the morning. Anyone who sees us bases an opinion on us, whether they know us or not. I tell myself that it doesn’t matter, people who know me know that I don’t always look that way, but REALLY? Somewhere inside me I think everyone is stink eyeing me. Do you do the same thing?

The saying that you never get a chance to make a first impression isn’t as true as what we’ve been lead to believe, at least in a personal way, and never judge a book by its over has never been more true. We can recreate ourselves EVERY day. We can put ourselves out to the world and tell our story a day at a time.

Perception of Glamour
When someone judges you, it isn’t about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations and needs

Head-shot – Shades of Sheryl Crow

I had the recent opportunity to work with a previous client in creating her business head-shot. A head-shot is important for a lot of reason if you’re a business person.

MsE is Chiropractor in Green Bay and needed a head-shot. I got her in had her images back to her in nearly record time. If you’re in need of a chiropractor, contact me and I’ll pass her info along to you.

MsE chose a three-look session and wanted her head-shots to portray her as both professional and approachable. My favorites are the yellow top – yellow really is her color. Since we’d worked together previously, our head-shot session was comfortable and a lot of fun. We found a lot of things to chat about while I was losing my camera and stumbling over props and backdrops. And seriously, MsE totally killed her session. Kind of hard not to with her looks.

Do you need a new head-shot to liven up your Facebook business page, your Linked-In profile picture or business card? Head-shots can also be used for marketing materials, for your website and social media. Call 920-659-0614!
