Wisconsin In-Studio Boudoir Session

Wisconsin Boudoir Session

This was the second boudoir session with my studio rep, MsEmily. It’s always a blast to shoot with Emily, she has a sharp sense of humor and a mutual love of tattoos (in fact she’s gotten another since this session!).

I asked Em how she felt about her experience with JLReis Boudoir Photography so far. “Once I saw my photos you did for the 1st time, I had to go home and apologize to my husband. You brought out the beauty he sees every day that I never saw,” she said. “Having you photograph me has been a truly life changing experience!” There’s no real trick to how to act at a boudoir session, all you have to do is let yourself go and have a good time – that results in your best photos.

About her overall photography experience, Emily says: “Being photographed by you is more fun than having a pocket full of hundred dollar bills on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras!!!”

Emily is a “regular” woman, just like you and me and her photos turn out great because she trusts that I know what I’m doing and throws herself into the moment. Her true personality comes through in these images – sassy, flirty and fun all the way. I’m so glad I met her and that she was interested in representing my studio as a “regular” woman.

Every one of the ladies in this post hold a place near and dear to my heart. The very first (and a couple of the others) are my very best friend and one of the most beautiful women I know. Whenever her photos grace my blog or FB feed, they blow up with comments. The photo up top is the photo that started it all. MsP needed a photo for a calendar. We had a half an hour. I took one shot and this was the photo that went in the calendar. This photo led to the opportunity to work with a local business and shoot their calendar for the next four years. One of the ladies is a very talented make-up artist, another is my tattoo girl and one of them is a community minded business owner.

And I love every one of them.

So … do you (or your SO) have a bike that you want to include in your session? It’s pretty easy to do. Just ride it over and we’ll roll!

How do you see yourself? Studio Rep Elizabeth says:
[pullquote width=”100%” float=”left”]”Hey everybody, I have to say I was extremely nervous and excited to see the finished personal portraits from my photo shoot. I so desperately wanted to see how I truly felt inside in a picture. What I did see was so much more than that. I saw my beauty and the smile that my husband always talks about.[/pullquote]

[pullquote width=”100%” float=”left”]You always think people say things because they are supposed to but I learned that it was genuine. When I saw the picture in the white dress I cried, that’s how I knew what I set out to do was a success. The surgery helped me get smaller, but it was confidence in myself that helped me realize who I am. I’m so glad I took this chance and am more than ecstatic to see what the future shoots bring ❤❤ thank you Jackee.[/pullquote]

How do you see yourself? Who is that person inside you? Is the person inside you who you see when you see a photo of yourself? Are you pleasantly surprised? Would you like to be? Personal portraits aren’t only for the people you love, they are for you, someone you should love because if you love yourself, you can better love others.

Body Image

Body image … what a powerful concept. Our generation, our daughters’ generation, has been bombarded for 40+ years about “body image”, yet I don’t think any of us know what it is, how important it is to our self esteem, how our view of our own bodies – OURSELVES – affects how our daughters see themselves.

Sometimes it’s not even what we see in the mirror, but what another says to us or about us that shapes our feelings. Even if we are truly beautiful (and really, we all are beautiful in some way) a word or sentence or even a look from our past can makes us shudder with the memory and blur the beauty that stares us in the face every day.

No one – not the cutest cheerleader, not Miss Wisconsin, not you, not me – are happy with what we see in the mirror

Change Your View

Every day, look in the mirror and comment on ONE thing you like about yourself. “Wow, I LOVE the color of my eyes.” “I have a great complexion.” “my posture is fantastic.” The more we compliment ourselves, the more self-esteem we gain and the more that nasty little voice i the back of our mind starts zipping it’s shitty little lip.
