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.

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.

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.

SuperHero Boudoir

MissJ is my little superhero. She did this session as a gift to herself and she deserved it,

A big thank you to her for allowing me to share these shots from her studio session. Not only did she rock her session, but she inspired me to finish the wings I’d been putting off for about a year!

Permission has been granted by the client to post these images.

The Importance of Professional Headshot

Professional Headshot Photography in Green Bay, Appleton, Seymour, Shawano, WisconsinProfessional headshots are important? Are you a professional? Do you have a website, Twitter or Facebook account? Is your profile picture a picture of your dogs, a cartoon or a street view of your business? Do you have a professional headshots?

Why not?

I can guess. Most people, professional or not, don’t want to invest money having photographs taken of themselves for 100 different reason (which boils down to the same reasons that people don’t want to have personal portraits taken -but that’s for another blog).

Your customers like to see who they are working with. It makes you more real – and that makes you more trustworthy.

But why should you take a professional headshot if when you can take your OWN photo. Because it will LOOK like you took it yourself and if a clients feels that you don’t value yourself or business enough to have professional portraits taken, to represent the face of your business, no matter what it is, the odds are that they’ll choose someone else. NE Wisconsin is behind the times on a lot of things, but as more and more people become more and more familiar with the Internet and bringing their own business to the Interent, they’ll see what I’m saying.

I know that having your photo taken is stressful; trust me, I know. I’ve hated having my photos taken since HS (and it showed). But if I knew then what I know about angles and lighting, I would have taken better photos.

Outagamie County Fair “Sweetheart” Session

Ever since I started taking photos professionally I’ve wanted to do a fair-themed photo session.

Our local county fair was last week and I knew if I didn’t get on it and plan one, I might never get the opportunity to do a real one.

Luckily, I had time and a quick shout out on Facebook (gotta love social media) found me the perfect couple.

Brittany and Keegan were awesome and I can’t thank them enough for giving me the opportunity to share a little bit of their fair time with them.

Mothers and Daughters

Mother/Daughter Portraits - $179

I can’t repeat enough how much I would give to have a good photo of my mom and myself.

Mothers and daughters have a connection that spans years, from that first eye contact, to the first day of school to choosing a prom dress, then a wedding dress and beyond.

It can’t be described as a friendship, because a mother can love no one like she loves her daughter; a daughter can trust and admire no one the way she does her mother.
I can’t stress how much YOUR mom or YOUR daughter will treasure a photo of the two of you together.

If you’re looking for a Mother’s day gift that will really mean something, that will be different than flowers, candy or a robe, get your photos taken together.

It’s always hard to decide what to give Mom for Mother’s Day, but trust me, a photo of her and you is the perfect gift.

Give a lasting memory to the special Mom in your life. She’ll love you for it

MadBee Photo chooses not to photograph families with children under the age of ten years old; there are many other photographers who are better at working with children and for me to charge for something I’m not good at would be unfair to my clients.

Why Have Professional Photos Taken

Everybody who has a phone has a camera, so everybody has photos of all the cute things their kids do or their Christmas tree or their new car or just about anything. It’s become almost natural to flip out your smartphone and snap away like there’s no tomorrow.

And that’s great. All memories are great. But what happens to those photos? A lot of them get shared on Facebook or Instagram. But the majority of them stay on the phone. Or they get deleted to make room for more pictures. Or you get a new phone and your old phone gets tossed in a drawer, with those pictures never again to be seen.

Pictures are and have always been a big deal in my family, and as it turns out, in my husband’s family as well.

Sadly, most of the photos from my youth disappeared over the years, but I have the sweetest photo of my mother as a child and we’ve inherited heirloom photos from my husband’s family. Alll three of them hang in places of honor on our living room walls. They’ll be passed down to our children, too.

Nearly every wall in my dining room and living room are covered with photos and I have a big bin full of the photos that have hung one our walls over the past 27 years.

Wisconsin Heirloom Photography

I made sure that our little family had a professional photo taken every year as our children were growing (well, if you can consider KMart and Sears professional, lol) and I’ve tried to get one every other year now that the kids are grown and moved out. Why? Because people change; kids grow up, parents die, we get son-in-laws and grandchildren. And while we have all the great memories, a photo will freeze that memory and allow us to relive it over and over.
