BIG changes are happening here at JSP. The biggest? BOUDOIRS!
While I will still take the occasional family/child/wedding for my close friends and long-time clients, my primary focus is now going to be intimate portraiture. Boudoirs. Sexy stuff. Couples, ladies, guys, all of it. Not only is this what I love doing the most, it also just so happens to be what I am best at.
To kick off my new wave of vixens is *gulp* self-portrait boudoirs.
Disclaimer: I’m not blogging these images to show off my hot bod. Actually, quite the opposite. I needed to know what it felt like to be in front of the camera. To be exposed and vulnerable and nervous about it. I’m so far from perfect it’s laughable – I have three kids, stretch marks, a new body that I’m not quite sure what to do with, fat, the whole thing. But I also have something I didn’t have before – new confidence. Before these photos I didn’t realize I had great legs! And the booty that I hated so much…not so bad.
So yes, boudoirs are scary. But they are also amazing. Fun. Inspiring. Empowering.
I forced myself to blog these the same way I would blog anyone else’s. They have minimal editing – some skin smoothing here and there, spot removal from where I banged up my knees rock climbing, and basic color boosting. I am posting images that make me uncomfortable – but I am doing it to show that I get it. I’m willing to step into my clients’ shoes to provide the absolute best experience possible for them, because we are the same people. Imperfections are the new perfect.
