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!

Everything You Need To Know About The Boudoir Marathon

  • Sessions take place at the JLReis Studio in Seymour, WI, in studio or on the patio depending on the weather
  • The offer is ONLY for VIP group members and those on the mailing list
  • I am accepting 3 slots per day
  • Prudence Walker of Rustic Cuts & Co will be providing hair and makeup touch-ups on the day of your session. Touch ups include a hair fluff and emphasizing your eyes and lips
  • Currently sessions start at 11am and will be booked approximately three hours apart.

What’s the Price & What do I get?

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.

You’ll Never Be More Ready Than You Are Right Now

Appleton Wisconsin Boudoir

I have heard every excuse in the world about why women can’t do boudoir. I’ll be honest, I’ve made a few of them myself. But it’s time to fight those excuses once and for all!

No matter how old you are, it’s intimidating to do something you’ve never done before, whether it’s going up in a hot-air balloon or taking your clothes off in front of a complete stranger (I have yet to take a hot-air balloon ride, but hey! This might be the year!) But really, there is nothing to be afraid of. First, Being out of your comfort zone is something we’ve all been though. But do you remember how you felt after that first time – no matter what it was? It was AMAZING and I’ll bet you felt on top of the world!

Being fearful and holding back only keeps you from experiencing new things, something that might turn out to be the best thng you’ve ever done just for YOU. Don’t waste your energy on what could go wrong, but instead, have trust and think about what could go right!

A good photographer will never push you. If you aren’t comfortable yet, I get that and I work with you. I know how to break down your walls and have you FEELING ready!

You won’t look ridiculous. With MY guidance, you’re going to look amazing and if you think you couldn’t possibly feel sexy, think again.

The most common and frankly – silly – fear is caring what others might think. You’re doing this for YOU. Not everyone will understand WHY you’re doing it and that’s okay. Live for yourself and don’t worry about what others say or think.

To every woman out there who is waiting for the “perfect time”: there IS no perfect time. We’re all a perfectly imperfect mess. Don’t wait until it’s too late, do it scared.

Tell me below what your biggest fear of boudoir is!

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.

The Biggest Myths About Boudoir

Christmas in July Boudoir

One of the biggest lies we tell ourselves about boudoir is that we’re too fat or that we don’t have a “boudoir” body.

Bullshit. Wanna know how to have a “boudoir” body? Make an appointment and have your photos taken. Poof! You have a “boudoir” body.

MYTH: Only certain bodies look good in front of the camera. FACT: You don’t need to lose weight. Embracing your body and learning to love yourself the way your are is what we should all be trying to do. While I smooth your skin and remove acne or make tanning lines less noticeable, I DON’T Photoshop every single thing you hate about yourself. I DO put you in flattering poses and use good lighting. You never need to change a single thing about yourself and having your photos taken is a wonderful way to show YOU how gorgeous you truly are.

MYTH: Boudoir is porn and they’re just raunchy photos. FACT: It’s so much more than that. Of course, we can get just as down and dirty as you want, but ONLY if you want. Boudoir is an experience that teaches body empowerment and celebrating the skin you’re in.

MYTH: Boudoir photography is only for special occasions. FACT: You don’t have to do boudoir as a gift to your partner. Do it for yourself! It’s all about self-worth and investing in YOU. A boudoir shoot will show you how beautiful you really are.

MYTH: Your photos will end up on the Internet. FACT: You don’t have to tell anyone or show anyone your photos if you’re not comfortable with it. We keep your session and your photos confidential. Nobody will see them if you don’t want them to. It can be private, or you can share it! The choice is yours.

MYTH: Only women have boudoir photos taken. FACT: Any person should definitely look into boudoir. ALL bodies are loved!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

How would you like a sample boudoir photo? Oh, it’s cold outside now, and busier than Santa’s Workshop in all our homes, but after the holidays, my loves, things will change.


I really can’t stay Baby, it’s cold outside. I gotta go away, Baby, it’s cold outside. This evening has been, Been hoping that you’d drop in. So very nice, I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice ~ Joseph Gordon Leavitt & Gaga

Things are changing with the new year … it is, and has always been, my goal to photograph women in all their glory, whether dressed or undressed. Being the secret keeping, shy and timid creatures we have been cursed to be (even though we may be loud and obnoxious to the public), we just can’t seem to bring ourselves to have our photos taken. We can justify $200 purses, $150 glitter pocketed jeans and a plethora of other meaningless things that will be gone in a year or so, but we can’t bring ourselves to actually do something for ourselves, that will last forever.

Shame, shame.

If we DO get past the “pasty skin”, fat thigh”, “short hair” excuses, we tell ourselves and our friends that the photos are a gift for our husbands, boyfriends or lovers. But we’re quicker than hell to show those beautiful photos off to OUR friends. All the time reinforcing the idea that the photos were taken for someone else.

Weird, eh?

Have you been thinking about a session but feel scared or even “stupid”? Do you wish you could take just one sample boudoir photo, to get an idea? Do you want to make sure that the full investment is what you’re looking for? Do you want to just give it a taste? I have just the opportunity for you.

Then this is a gift for YOU.

When I first thought of this, I intended it to be for one day; my business mentor suggested that I add it as a regular choice for a while (two weeks), to see how it goes over, so I AM.

I am offering $50 (+tx) sample sessions that will give you a taste of what a normal session would be like. At the end of the hour you will have about 5-10 completed images to choose ONE perfect 8×10 photo from! You will be able to choose your photo before you leave and it will be delivered directly to your home within 5-7 days.

A sample photo session is a perfect way to see if this is for you and what you’re final product is going to be without spending a lot of money.

The 45 minute session includes an in depth discussion as to what YOU want for a full session, $50 off “The Flirt” (reg. $299) or “The Whole Damn Works (reg. $649) and a $50 credit towards any additional print or digital products (pricing at bottom of this page).

Openings starting at 1:30 on the hour. The last session will start at 5:30pm.
