I hope yesterday was filled with love and family, as mine was. I am truly grateful for my life and everyone in it and their part in building me up over this past year. There is NOTHING that feels better than believing in yourself and loving yourself and I want to share that feeling.

JLReis Photography is offering some pretty special deals so that YOU (or someone you LOVE) can experience the feeling of doing something you’ve never done before and the sense of excitement and fun that comes with it! This is the HOTTEST sale of the year, my prices are going up after January 1, 2019! Each offer is limited, please read the following before making your selection. I am completely booked for the rest of 2018 and I am booking very lightly in 2019, so unless a currently booked session is canceled and becomes available, you may find it difficult to secure your preferred date.

VIP Group Member Contest

While down with a killer case of the flu this past week, I’ve been hanging out on my mentor boards and revisiting classes I’ve taken in the past.

Whenever I look through my member list I think to myself how I’d shoot each and every one of you, whether it would be boudoir, glamour or a headshot; Many of you have photos with your daughters or moms, I think how lovely a photo would be for you; you are so beautiful in your own right and I know you all have a story to tell, a story that should be seen by other women and I think I’ve come up with a way to showcase at least ONE of you.

From now until Thursday Dec. 21, the CURRENT member that adds the most NEW members will win a FREE Valentine’s session (must be shot during the first week of January).

You will win an hour session, hair and make-up, professional posing assistance and 5 (five) professionally printed 4×6 prints. The session is worth over $200. The winner must also sign a model release so that I can use your photos for adverting; you CAN pose anonymously (see images below).

Contest closes Thursday, December 21 at 5pm and winner is announced LIVE, Friday, Dec. 22 at 9am.

Wisconsin Harley Boudoir
Harley Women – The Photo That Started It ALL

 

Harley Boudoir/Glamour sessions are easy to set up. Want to set up your own session? Just email me or Facebook PM and we’ll get the ball rolling

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.
