February Boudie Call

Wisconsin Boudoir Photography

Booking for March!

Due to overwhelming interest in last month’s event, Pru & I are holding our second model call of 2019! We’re looking to shoot seven different themes in March, no experience required. We are on the hunt for REAL PEOPLE of any shape or size that are willing to sign a release and allow their photos to be used by us for advertising purposes (including, but not limited to, Facebook, Instagram, website, etc.)

It’s hard take that first step and we have nothing but tons of love for our clients who’ve come in, thrown their clothes off and contorted themselves into some pretty painful positions. We are grateful for those women who allow us to share their photos in any capacity and we can’t wait to do it again and again. We also love those babes who prefer NOT to share their images with anyone and we NEVER post your images without your permission and a signed release.

Intimate photography isn’t just a simple makeup session and photo shoot. It’s not just something you do for someone else. Having these photos taken can be the biggest ego boost you ever have. When you come and hang out with us we make you laugh, we give you the gift of discovering yourself. We tease out your femininity. We give you the opportunity to experience that side of you that you’ve always wanted to.

Boudoir photography is a life changing experience and every woman should experience this side of them. Our boudie call babes help other women see that they can do this too!

FINE PRINT: The $125 deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE. If you don’t show, you don’t get your money back. ONE reschedule is allowed. Photos will be used for advertising purposes of any kind. You are not tagged by us, but you may tag yourself. Five images are included in the model call but additional images/products are available for purchase during your reveal with your product credit.

REFERRAL PERKS: Refer a friend who books a model call and you get $50 towards a FULL PRICED TEASE SESSION (hair/makeup not included). Referral credits don’t expire and are stackable. Your friend must mention your name at time of booking.

Prepare for Your Boudoir Photo Shoot

Appleton Boudoir Photography

Valentine’s Day is coming up, beauties. If you’re thinking of having your photos done for that special someone I’ve got some tips and tricks for you so you’ll be ready for your big day. If you start getting ready at least two weeks before your session, you’ll be more than ready when the shutter clicks.

SKIN – My biggest tip for skin, especially during the winter, but basically all year round, is to invest in a jar of coconut oil. Bring it home, heat it up in the microwave, then funnel it into a small squeeze bottle and put it in your shower. When you get in the shower, put that bottle near the drain so that the coconut oil melts again and before you get out of the shower, after you’ve washed, conditioned and shaved, rub it all over your wet body and massage it in. Coconut oil is amazing and can be used for so many things (make-up remover and frying hamburgers to name just a few) but it’s the perfect skin moisturizer. Check your current body lotion. The first ingredient is WATER. What does water do when it sits on a surface? It evaporates. If that surface is your skin, it evaporates and takes all the moisture with it. Hello sandpaper skin!

I’m not gonna tell you not to tan, we all look good with a little golden glow. Just don’t overdo it, girl! And don’t do it right before your session. Buy a small package a week or two before your session so you have just the tiniest bit of color.

Stay the hell away from spray tans and self tanners! I don’t care what they tell you, you look ORANGE. You will photograph ORANGE. And I will try to edit your photos and lose my mind. Say no to the oompa-loompa look and we’ll all be happy.

Appleton Boudoir Photography

DIET – In the week before your session drink a LOT of water and stay away from anything you know makes you bloaty.

EXERCISE – Wait, what? Calm down, I’m not suggesting you run out and sign up for a Zumba class. I’m just saying you’re gonna need to limber up before your session. Pru and I put you in to some interesting positions, so stretching the 2-3 days before your session would be smart.

Appleton Boudoir Photography

HAIR/MAKEUP – I can’t emphasize enough the importance of having your hair and makeup done professionally. Our HMUA, Prudence is amazing. She not only has years of experience behind the chair, she gets you rolling and loosens you up before you step in front of the camera. She’s our very own Instigator of Underwear

Appleton Boudoir Photography

WARDROBE – Wear something loose the day of your session. No bra, no socks and nothing that goes on or comes off over your head.
We will discuss your session wardrobe before the day of your shoot, but I want you to wear what makes you feel comfortable and sexy. If you buy something new for the session wear it a few times before you come in. Lay down, roll around in it. Stretch (there’s that damn exercise again!) and bend. If you don’t feel comfortable in your outfits it will come across in your photos. We don’t want that.

Appleton Boudoir Photography

SHOES – I suggest you bring HOT shoes. I don’t mean those shoes you bought for your cousin’s wedding or the nice pair you wear to church. For these kind of photos you need CFM pumps … stripper heels. You’re not gonna be walking in them, in fact we don’t allow that, but you’ll be wearing them to make your legs look AMAZING. Don’t have CFMs? That’s okay, I DO. And I have them in YOUR size. If I don’t, I’ll get them.

Appleton Boudoir Photography

PRACTICE – While we’re on the subject of looking amazing, practice “looking sexy”. Whoever you’re having these photos done for, whether it’s for yourself or a loved one, you want your images to have the WOW factor. So, if you’re not already, practice being comfortable with yourself. Run your hands up and down your body. Stretch and arch and run your fingers through your hair. Look in the mirror and lick your lips, throw yourself kisses, cross your eyes and throw your head back and laugh … do it til you get comfortable with it (which will never happen, doll, but now you know what we’re gonna be doing when you show up for your session).

Appleton Boudoir Photography

SLEEP – Go to bed early the night before your shoot and think sexy thoughts

FINALLY – Don’t do anything crazy in the days before your session. Don’t decide you’ll look better as a redhead. Or shave one side of your head. Or get a tattoo

Appleton Boudoir Photography

WE’RE GONNA HAVE FUN – Unless you PLAN on looking like Cinderella or Snow White, we’re going for SIZZLE. SMOKE. HOT. I can take the photo, but YOU gotta give me the goods. We don’t want a stiff Barbie doll in front in front of the camera and I know you don’t want to be stiff either.
I do this because I believe with all my heart that EVERY WOMAN IS BEAUTIFUL and that if they can SEE it, they’ll believe it. I want my clients to take out their photos and look at them and be reminded that the beautiful, confident HOT chick in those images is always with her.

So! If you’re thinking of having your photos taken, give yourself and US enough time. Time to pick your wardrobe, time to choose your favorites, time to edit your final images and time to create and order that special album or wall print.

Ready? We’re here to start walking you through every single minute.

Selfies Are HARD, Y’all

Green Bay Boudoir | Appleton Boudoir
Boudoir selfie or professional photographer? Gah … I can shoot my clients, but taking my own photos, even with a professional camera and the knowledge I have is really fucking HARD. After yesterday I think I’m gonna do some searching and find a local photographer to do mine.

My job – my passion – is taking photos that allow women to look at themselves and love what they see, whether they’re taking the photos for someone they love or for themselves. Taking selfies is an exercise in PAIN… I am not kidding, my back is killing me from trying pose and hit the shutter at the same time. I warn my clients all the time that they’re gonna be sore and it’s true!

I’ll tell you what HAS happened since I started taking my own photos: I am accepting myself and my body. People, I am nearly 60 YEARS OLD!!!! That fact slaps me in the face on a regular basis and you know what? SO WHAT?

I’m becoming more confident in this mom-bod and my lived in face. Sometimes I see my own mom in my face. Sometimes I see my face in my daughter. This is me and if I don’t get good with what I have now, at the age of 57, when will I?

I’ve lost some weight recently, not on purpose, but I still have the wrinkles and the cellulite and that damn belly roll in the front and I’m okay with it. I really think a lot of it has to do with boudoir photography. I see my clients come in and toss off their clothes, trust me to make them look good and I KNOW I’m good too!

So yesterday I curled my hair with a flat iron because it was too freaking cold to go out to the studio more than once, watched a make-up video on YouTube, threw all my gear into a bag and went out to the studio.

In Celebration …

Green Bay Boudoir | Appleton Boudoir

… of friendship, of the future, of life.

I have been so lucky in my life to meet SO MANY wonderful people. Some have come into my life for only a short time, leaving me with wonderful memories of laughter shared and a few have stayed, becoming good friends and sometimes my partner in crime.

I met Prudence just a few years ago and I knew immediately that we’d be friends. We have so much in common and most importantly she loves to laugh. If you know me at all, you know that laughter is an important part of my life

Lucky for me, my camera loves her.

Beside being the hair and makeup artist extraordinaire that brings out the beauty in the girlies in front my camera, Prudence is also my “session director”, in charge of in-studio hospitality and entertainment, keeper of the dirty words and mover of furniture.

She also gets right down on the floor next to our clients and shows them how to pose for the camera.

And you can see she sure knows how to do THAT.

Ms A’s Boudoir Session(s)

Ashwaubenon Boudoir Photography

JLReis Photography’s goal to make YOU see your own, real beauty. I want to tell YOUR story. I want to show you who you are. I want to share your truth. MsA shares her boudoir experience below.

Ashwaubenon Boudoir Photography

“I was so nervous about these pictures. I simply didn’t know what to expect; Jackee was warm and inviting and instantly made me feel much more at ease.” I have to give MsA a big shout out, she walked in to the studio and immediately put herself into Prudence’s capable hands and was down for whatever we had in mind. She says, “I was definitely put at ease from the moment I met you.”

Ashwaubenon Boudoir Photography

Nerves ALWAYS play a part in any photo shoot. “Definitely!” says MsA. “I even contemplated several glasses of wine but I didn’t want that glassy look, haha.”

Ashwaubenon Boudoir Photography

While I’m nervous at every reveal, I’m more nervous that my client won’t see what I saw. When I asked what MsA felt, she said, “Several different emotions from not being able to see how beautiful I looked in the pictures to realizing that I AM beautiful. Jackee pointed out so many times that beauty is the focus – not the flaws.” My heart just burst. MsA IS beautiful.

Ashwaubenon Boudoir Photography

My idea of a good time is not always someone else’s idea of a good time, lol, but this time the client felt the same way I did! “My favorite part of the experience was] Driving in a van to some unknown place with two people I had never met!” Pru and I try to make our clients laugh and to feel comfortable, it makes me happy that MsA felt that. “Jackee and Pru have such a fun time together.”

Ashwaubenon Boudoir Photography

MsA says if you’re thinking about having a boudoir session, do it! “Just jump right in a get your feet wet!”

Ashwaubenon Boudoir Photography

“I’ve recommended her to many people! I tell them that she not only takes great pictures, but that she instantly puts you at ease and makes you put aside your fear.”

This is what I want to do in a nutshell. I want you to stop being afraid and to see your own beauty. I want to give you memories that you can look back on for the rest of your life. If you want to see future blog posts, know when I’m running great special OR be in on my Black Friday deals, get your name on my newsletter list!!!

What to Wear Wednesday

Appleton Boudoir Photographer

Newest additions to the Boudie Closet!

Finding outfits for your boudoir session is half the fun but sometimes it is hard to know where to start! Keep in mind these simple tips and recommendations and you will look amazing!

My girls all ask “What should I wear for my boudoir session?” Read on, babies, I have the answer!

I have a pretty healthy Boudie Closet designed to fit girlies of ALL sizes. I am always adding to the Boudie Closet, my jewelry selection and of course, those hot CFM (censored) pumps.

Wisconsin Boudoir Studio

When we set up your session, you can take a look at what I have in-studio or order something to keep from my Boudie Catalogue (coming in January 2019)!

As with all things boudie, there is no one answer to any question. Things to think about:

  • You don’t HAVE to wear lingerie to have a hot photo session – if you don’t feel sexy in something, you won’t look sexy in it!
  • Bring black, white and nude panties in addition to your lingerie/wardrobe
  • Bringing shoes? Save the “safe” shoes for church or that business meeting. If you don’t have killer stilettos, I DO
  • Bring new or lightly worn lingerie (you don’t want those little balls or rips showing up in your images)
  • Try everything on BEFORE packing it in your bag
