You’re Never Too Old For Boudoir

Shawano Wisconsin Boudoir

When it comes to being old, age is just a number. If your age is preventing you from doing something extraordinary like this, think again. Don’t let it limit your wildest fantasies.

You aren’t getting any younger! You only live once… so why not? Don’t miss out on this and in 15 more years, think, “Wow. I really skipped out on living my best life. What was I thinking?” Plenty of people of ALL ages are hopping into the boudoir trend!

You get prettier with age. There, we said it! You’re like a fine wine – full of stories, laughs, love, and memories. Your beautiful eyes have seen so much. Those fine lines have traveled all over the country. Your mind has carried so much love. Boudoir photography captures where you are now and where you have been.

Prove them wrong. Prove yourself wrong.

Celebrate your body at every age and as much as possible. If you think you’ve lost any trace of sexy, we’ll help you rediscover that. It’s still there, we promise!

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!

Christmas in July – 2021

Christmas in July

Christmas in July

Christmas? In July???

Yup. You’ve been thinking about doing boudoir photos for a long time and you want to give the gift of your photos to someone special for Christmas. The best time to do it is NOW. Boudoir photos are not something you can rush, there is a lot of planning to get those gorgeous shots and we need time to plan everything from your wardrobe down to your poses. You’re busy enough during the holidays, you don’t need the added pressure of extra things to worry about.

I only shoot two sessions a week due to my recent health issues (which means there are only 9 dates available in July) because I want to be sure my girls have plenty to time to get their sessions planned, their wardrobe chosen and images ordered for holiday gift giving.

I also need to make sure I have enough time to edit your photos and get them into an album and printed. Getting comfortable with my editing process has been – let’s say interesting – and I want to be sure I have plenty of time to devote to the work I do after your session.

Shooting in July means that you can also get those smoking HOT outdoor shoots or water shoots ** that just aren’t available in November.

We are booking boudoir shoots for July RIGHT NOW. We only book 8-9 sessions per month so that every client gets the personalized experience necessary. We want time to create your tastefully sexy albums and wall art that shows off your best features!

The Sound of Sunshine

Wisconsin Boudoir Photography

Most – if not all – of our clients feel nervous when they book with us. After all, most women have never taken off their clothes on front of a camera, so of course they feel unprepared, scared or just plain not ready.

But it turns out that ALL of our clients are GLAD they went through with a session. It may have started out as a joke, or they were doing it for someone else, but in the end, having these photos turned out to be one of the biggest esteem boosters of their lives.

MsJ came to us to help her create some steaming images that featured her gorgeous self! We were so glad that she did, her photos are amazing!!

We asked her a few after-session questions, take a look at her answers:

What was your biggest fear before hiring me? Did it come true, and if not, what happened instead?
My biggest fear was that I would see the photos and be even more self conscious about myself than ever. The exact opposite is what happened. When I look at the photos it gives me the self confidence that I normally do not have.

Were you nervous about your shoot? How did Jackee help?
I was not as nervous going into the shoot as I thought I would be. I started relaxing when Pru did my hair and makeup. When I got to Jackee I was already feeling good about myself. We went into the studio and started to talk. It only got better from there. She is definitely down to earth and a person who relates well to others. She helped me choose my outfits and accessories. Once she began shooting I just let loose and let her take over. I had confidence that she was the pro and knew exactly what needed to be done. The final shots are proof of that!

How did you feel after you saw your photos for the first time?
OMG that’s me??? That basically sums up how I felt the first time I looked at the photos and every time I still do. She doesn’t try to make you look like someone else, she just brings out the best in you.

What, specifically, was your favorite part of your boudoir experience and why?
The actual photography session was my favorite. The time flew by so quickly, but I did not want this time to end. In my younger years I did a small amount of modeling. I can’t even say it brought me back to the good ole days because this was sooooo much better. We joked and laughed and had a great time. I felt like I had known Jackee my entire life. It was like having a girls day out, but she was working her magic the entire time and I was having the most amazing time.

Did you enjoy working with Jackee and Pru?
What great women!! They are not only professional, but very down to earth. They both excel in their profession and it shows. I can’t imagine doing this type of photography shoot with anyone else.

What advice would you give to other women thinking about having a boudoir session?
Just go for it!! Your inner beauty and your outer beauty will shine through. It doesn’t matter if these photos will be for you or for someone special in your life. This is something you deserve. Don’t put it off…you won’t regret it!

If you were to recommend me to your best friend, what would you say?
As your true friend, I would have to encourage (or should I say insist) that you jump at the opportunity to do this. If I can do this, so can you.

Oh, MsJ I had such a great time that day! Thank you!

Is It Spring or NOT?

Wisconsin Boudoir Photography

It’s cold and overcast and I’m beginning to wonder if spring will EVER get here.

Warm weather means taking your photos outside, whether on the studio patio or one of our sweet little spots in the yard or even on location at Lake Michigan or A beautiful falls area in Shawano County. But if the outside weather isn’t accommodating, we’ll take your boudoir photos in the studio!

It’s been over six months and I am going CRAZY for wanting to take some beautiful photos!

The books are OPEN and we’re taking appointments for June 2021. Read all about how it works and let’s roll, dolls.
