Behind the Scenes Appleton Boudoir

If you’ve had your photos done by JLReis Photography, you’ve met Prudence and I and you know that if nothing else, we are batshit crazy in the most loving and hysterical kind of way.

One of the biggest things we hear from our girlies is that they don’t know what to expect when they come for a session. It’s simple really, you walk in and we smother you in love and laughter. We go through your wardrobe and all of the panties you bought special from Vickie’s, we pick out shoes and jewelry from the Boudie Closet. Then we lay out your outfits in order and plop your ass in the makeup chair .

Once we have you where we want you, we start telling you jokes and stories and Pru proceeds to make you camera ready. She doesn’t make you “beautiful”. You’re already beautiful. Prudence accentuates your eyes and your lips and does your hair so it frames your gorgeous face.

While you’re in the chair we talk about anything and everything – just normal girlie stuff that ALL women talk about. I might take some photos of you in the chair to share with group (you’re in group, right? If not, get OVER there and join!!!)

We know what’s going through your mind while you’re sitting there in Pru’s chair: “I have NO IDEA how to look sexy in front of a camera”. We got you, boo! Prudence, our in-house “Instigator of Underwear”, will get right down on the floor – because I’m old as dirt and if I get down, I may not get up – and show you every pose. We touch you inappropriately to get just the right turn in your ankle and pop in your booty. And like my mama always said: “If it don’t hurt, you ain’t doing it right.”

When we book, we always tell clients to stretch in the days before their session. We aren’t kidding, posing is hard work and you’re gonna feel your session the day after!

Some of the poses and facial expressions will feel awkward and sometimes right down stupid, but trust us, we know what we’re doing and everything we tell you to do is to make your photos look amazing.

When we’re done, we peel you out of your panties bundle you back into your sweats and walk you out to your vehicle. Later that day I go through your photos and choose the best of the best and pick one for a sneakie-peek.

Pru and I enjoy your session as much, if not more than you do. We LOVE making you laugh and we love helping you see that you really are gorgeous. I have spent so much of my life building women up, being able to actually SHOW them is amazing and blows me away every time.

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.

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.
