Glamour Rep Search for JLReis Photography – Day Two

JLReis Photography Studio Glamour Rep

I’ve worked with so many lovely women since opening my doors, creating some of the most incredible images that I am so PROUD of. With every session I do, I feel more and more strongly that this is what I am meant to do for the rest of my life. Now I am looking for a glamour rep, a boudoir rep, a headshot rep and a dreamshoot rep. All reps can shoot any of the categories, but I will need at least ONE for each.

How I’ll be choosing will be a little different than I have in the past. Most of the women that I currently shoot have children, are over 35 years old, and have great life stories. I want women who will represent my regular client, someone who understands how important it is for women to be confident, brave and comfortable in their own skin. I’m not looking for experienced models, I’m looking for women like ME and YOU.

My reps will be expected to tell all their friends about their amazing experience with JLReis Photography and share their photos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. These women will be the face of my studio, from July 1st until December 31st. They will have at least three photo sessions with me throughout the year and will be my muses.

The women I choose will be expected to be comfortable enough with their body to pose in lingerie or simulated nudes (you will NEVER AT ANY TIME be expected to pose naked or have nude photos used in any of my advertising). While I will choose the type/theme of the sessions, I will shoot around YOUR schedule. You will be required to sign a model release, allowing me full use of your images on my blog, on Facebook, on Instagram and on Twitter, no restrictions (THIS IS NOT NEGOTIABLE). You will be expected to show off your images and talk about JLReis Photography on your own social media. This is kind of like a job and you will be paid with some of the most spectacular portraits you’ve ever had taken of yourself.

I’ll be working the month of June to choose my reps, I know you’re out there!

Keep your eyes open in the next week or so for more information on my search and how to qualify to be one of my studio representatives.

For now, email me at beautiful@jlreisphotography.com or PM on Facebook with YOUR email address, so that I can add you to my VIP Facebook group.

Photo Rep Search for JLReis Photography

JLReis Boudoir Glamour Photo Rep

Now that the studio is pretty much finished (but there’s always something new going on), I’m looking for a photo rep. A few someones to represent JLReis Photography; a muse and model for portrait, glamour and boudoir sessions. My clients over the past four years (yes, it’s been that long!) have been wonderful, but the majority of them don’t want to share their photos publicly. Of course, I respect that choice 100%, but sadly this leaves me unable to share some of my favorite images and to show my work to women everywhere in Northeast Wisconsin!

I’m looking photo reps, women whose images I can share on my website, and social media and who will share their photos with their friends on social media! While it is really helpful to have someone spread the word about me, a photo rep will give me the opportunity to style creative shoots. Some of my favorite sessions have been on-location: at the Fair, at local waterfalls and hidden riverbeds and those with my clients wearing retro/vintage costumes (or not ;-))

My regular clients will ALWAYS have the option to keep their photos private, so working with a boudoir rep gives me photos for use in advertisements, additions to my portfolio, and fun stuff to share on Facebook. I need women who know and believe how important it is for women to embrace their sensuality and feel more comfortable in their own skin. I want to work with someone who loves what I do, and understands why I do it.

2017’s Photo Rep will receive at least three (3) FREE shoots from July 1st until December 31st. Every session will include hair and make-up, referral points toward photography sessions and print products for every client that books from your referral and a gorgeous leather bound photo box with 15 of your favorite images from the year.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

What the hell is boo-dar? Or bwoo-door. Or any number of goofy ways that people usually pronounce the word boudoir (boo-dwah, btw).

First, I’ll tell you what it’s NOT. It is not naked women rolling around in dark rooms having their photos taken. While it can definitely BE sexy, it’s not really ABOUT sex. It’s about how a woman feels about herself, her life, her relationship, her lover. It’s a celebration of your life, of your accomplishments, of your own personal beauty.

We are so goddam hard on ourselves – about everything from what kind of mother we are to our looks; but it’s our looks that we are the hardest on. Otherwise explain the ungodly amount of money that’s spent in one month alone on make-up, gizmos to remove hair and gym memberships. All in the name of trying to make ourselves beautiful.

A couple of weeks ago a client laughed and said to me “Make me sexy.” If you were the most beautiful woman in the world I could not “make” you sexy. I can make you beautiful, but sexy is a whole different animal. Sexy isn’t something you can brush on or wear, sexy is something you feel. Sexy is confidence.

It’s feeling good about yourself and when you feel good about yourself you stand a little taller and your eyes sparkle and your smile is just that much brighter. It’s like being in love with yourself.

Let me make you fall in love with you.

Merry Christmas!

He’s Checking His List …

Happy Holidays The older I get, the fewer answers I have when someone ask me what I want for Christmas. I’m not and have never been a huge jewelry fan, though my spouse has gotten me some pretty pieces. Get me no plant … I will kill them. Seriously.

You’d think my family knew m well enough to at least find out what I want, but I’m beginning to see that the things I’ve thought I was pounding into their heads over the past 30 years has fallen on deaf ears.

For the most part, I have everything I’ve ever wanted and what I don’t have, I don’ see myself getting in the near future.

But from you, dear and loyal client, what is most important is word of mouth.

I’ve taken quite the little slew of what I like to call “panty pictures” over the summer and if what I’ve been told, my clients are pleased with the results. And this is where it should get easy: my clients are HAPPY and they know DOZENS of women who work with dozens of women who play darts with dozens of women … see where I’m going here?

A photographer’s most valued gift is word of mouth and I’d love for you to use your mouth to help me grow my business.

Even though I’ve had to change HOW I run my business, I intend to KEEP running my business and I am grateful to God for each and every one of my clients and supporters (those people who don’t have their photos taken, but refer me to others) I am thankful for your faith, belief, and appreciation of my work.

That’s why I’m starting a Client Referral Program!!

For every client you refer who books and completes a Boudoir/Glamour Portrait Session, you will receive a $25 Referral Credit towards your OWN session!

I will keep track of each referral and notify you via email of each one. If you are one of my loyal friends, but haven’t had a chance to book your own session, that’s even better! Just make sure the person you refer gives me your name and email address and I’ll add you to the program to start getting your credits so you can get your own dang photos taken!

Anyone can play – friends, people who love my work, people who want to have their photos taken – everybody’s welcome!

Your credits start to add up immediately as soon as someone SHOOTS their appointment.

The best part?
There is no limit to the number of credits you can accumulate and they won’t expire (they also arent worth any money, so they can’t be traded in for anything else 😉 )! Just think, only THIRTY TWO referrals to get The Whole Damn Works for FREE!!!!
