Miss DeSire

5 years during a Gallery Hop in the Short North I saw this gorgeous woman and flagged her down and asked if I could photograph her. 

We became friends and I have since photographed her 7 times! My most photographed beauty. 

She is a warrior. Chrons Disease Advocate for herself and others suffering. She participates in so many different community activities and she is super talented! She made her sweater in these photos! 

Gorgeous bombshell is a sweetheart inside and out! 

 

60 Is the New Sexy

60 Is the New Sexy

A day of pampering. 

Shut the cell phone off. Get your hair and makeup done in our Studio Salon. Full photo session posed to perfection. Feeling fabulous you head out of the studio to go have a fun day for yourself. 

When you return the studio about a week later, something happens between then. You get a whole different kind of nervous. An excited nervous and anticipation. 

So many of our clients become emotional at our reveal sessions. It is our favorite part. Not that we made you cry happy tears, but that you SEE it. That you, yes YOU. are so ficken amazing. 

It doesn’t matter the age. She is rocking her session at 60, you can rock yours at 40, at 80. I don’t make you pass an age test to book. 

Fabulous at 60.

25 Reasons to do a Boudoir Session

25 Reasons to do a Boudoir Session

REASON 1

To feel sexy again

Whether it be time taking a toll on you, kids making you tired, busy work life. You name it, sometimes we just don’t feel sexy. You don’t have to feel sexy for someone else. You can feel sexy cleaning your kitchen alone on a Tuesday. It’s looking in the mirror back at yourself and going “I still got it” .  

A session will do just that! Bring your sexy back!

REASON 2

To find confidence again

The first time I ever did a boudoir session, I had won it in a contest for a local photographer I referred clients too. I wasn’t in the best places in life, at a job I didn’t like and my health was on the rocks. I had lot 40 pound but still had a ways to go. 

The confidence I gained from seeing myself through someone else eyes was just the jump start I needed. When I lost the rest of the weight, I went back again!  I had no idea I had lost so much of my confidence I once had, and I was so glad to have it back, all because of a photo shoot. 

REASON 3

To have time to themselves and be pampered

 When is the last time you did something for yourself? Soccer practice, PTA meetings, family reunions, work parties the list is long and somewhere at the bottom, their you are putting yourself last. A photo shoot is a fun time to do something for yourself, not just the day of the session but leading up to it. Having your hair done, a spray tan maybe, your nails painted, maybe even drinking a little more water than you neglect to do.  It is a great time to plan something and to look foward to for YOURSELF. 

REASON 4

To have professional photographs of themselves during certain periods/milestones in their life

In a world of cell phone cameras at our finger tips, it’s easy to snap some photos and go about our day. But, with a professional photo shoot its more than just some digital files chilling on your cell phone. It’s the right light, the right poses, the right camera angles, and editing. Its a quality image you will have long after that cell phone no longer makes calls. 

 

 

REASON 5

Divorce party

 This ones a fun one. These happen more often than you know. Men and Women. Some truth bombs are thrown around a time or two in a divorce party boudoir shoot. Throwing out old beliefs, past hurts, negative emotions, freeing yourself from the weight you carried for far too long. It’s really magical to watch what happens as the client falls in love right in front of you with themselves all over again.  

REASON 6

Weight loss journey

 You put in the work, the weeks, the months, the years. Food prepping, calorie counting, Early wake up calls, late night runs to the gym. Turning ice cream down on a bad day and closing the box on those donuts in the office break room and walking away. Celebrate with a photo shoot. The shoot can even be in your work out gear, your boxing gloves, your tennis racket, your golf clubs. Show case this miletstone and be proud of yourself for the work and goals you accomplished. 

Clients tend to book this session months in advance to help push a deadline. It’s  a great way to stay motivated. 

 

REASON 7

Birthday gift for themselves

 We love celebrating birthdays with you! Plan a head on this one and book it for the day of your session. You have your hair and make up done to go paint the town!  Celebrate your birthday- in your birthday suit! 

 

REASON 8

Revenge shoots (after a breakup)

 Nothing like a women scorned, or man for that matter. Cheated on, heartbroken, broken up over a text message after a 10 year marriage. Left for someone younger. The list is long of the stories I have told but these sessions are FIRE. Coming into the studio ready to love themselves again and move on and a little teaser of what they let go is always fun to dangle in there face as they swipe right to a new relationship. 

 

REASON 9

Bucket List

The good old bucket list. The things you want to to do before a certian age or before you die, or before you get married, before you have kids. Some have a few, some have dozens but somewhere a lot of peoples list is be photographed nude. It’s sensual. It’s spicy. It’s adventurous. 

 

REASON 10

To say they did it once! (These clients always come back 😂)

 A dare, a wish, a push, a “oh my gosh did I really do that?”  To look back on a younger time to say “Yeah I did that!”. 

 

REASON 11

Cancer survivor or other life-threatening illness. 

We meet a lot of survivors. The badass women that have beat the odds. There bodies transformed right in front of them and they came out on the other side as a warrior. They apperiate the body they have, the skin they are in. The scars they wear. The life they won back. 

 

REASON 12

Fitness goals

Entering a pro fitness competition, running a marathon, or a triathlon, bikni competetion, or the like. A session is a great way to to remember your achievements and the work you put into the process.   

 

 

REASON 13

Birthday gift for significant others 

A sexy little black book is a great gift for your significant other to celebrate a birthday! A lot of our clients love given a album right before they celebrate the hubby’s 40th or 50th birthday! The look we still got it is a great way to given him the gift of you all over again! 

 

 

 

REASON 14

Pushes them out of a comfort zone

 This one is self explanatory. Doing a boudoir session can most certianly push you out of your comfort zone!

 

REASON 15

Soul searching

Coming out of depression, a breakup, a new marriage, life after empty nest, a death of a spouse. The list is long, really long, of why someone would be doing some soul searching.  Clients that have lost a child, or a job, or life in menapause. So many reasons to come in the studio an embrase the experince, have some fun being pampered and show a little more of your sexyier side. 

 

REASON 16

Just because they want to.

 You really don’t have to have a reason, you can just want to have a fun time! 

 

REASON 17

Because your friends have done it. 

I know the saying goes would you jump off a bridge if your friends did it?” But lets be honest, we do a lot of things because our friends do it. Concerts, going to the pool, happy hours, buying expensive shoes. But its a great way to bond with your girlfriends too. Its like a little kept secret of how much fun a shoot can be and you can talk to each other about your expeirences. 

 

 

REASON 18

Because it is just fun.

 

 

REASON 19

Wedding Anniversary 

 

 

REASON 20

For a wedding gift for S/O

 These sessions make the perfect gift for your spouse on your wedding day. Something they can look back on decades to come and say, “This was my bride, my forever bride!”  Just before walking down the isle the gifts are exchange and he is even more excited to marry you!

 

REASON 21

Want photos to look at when feeling down on yourself

 This can actually work with any of the other 24 reasons too. Have a bad day, pull out your album. Hard on yourself? Pull out your album. Feeling a little uncomfortable after the cupcakes you ate? Pull our your album.  Ageing getting to you? Pull out your album. It is a great way to look back and celebrate you all over again!

 

REASON 22

Trying to get pregnant, or are pregnant 

With infertility rate higher than it ever has been we have a lot of clients that will try anything to bring some magic into creating a child. They do a session to love there body and to give it to there spouse and make a connection again to help the fertility along. It is also a great time to do one when you are pregnant at any time to showcase the beauty of the child growing inside of you! 

 

REASON 23

Because they deserve it

 You do. Promise.

 

REASON 24

 They love playing dress up. 

We have shoes, and jewelry and outfits and furs and so many fun things to get dolled up in! Bring your own outfits and dance around to music and let the fan blow in your hair and lets laugh and have some fun. Let go of your trouble, and throw cares away and just have some good fun being gorgeous. 

 

REASON 25

 Today you are as young as you will ever be. 

This one is the kicker. You don’t have to have a reason other than this is the one life you get. You are only as young today as you will ever be. Don’t have regrets and do the things that set your soul on fire.

A client review that says it all!

A client review that says it all!

“I just finished my 2nd reveal with Joslyn today.  I still can’t believe I did it the first time, let alone a 2nd.  Body image has been something I’ve struggled with, well basically forever.  I’m never the right size or toned enough or pretty enough.  The only reason I did it the 1st time was because my husband is so hard to buy gifts for and I knew that he would NEVER see this one coming.  I was so right!  When I gave him the 1st album, he was shocked and that made my heart happy, but little did I know going into it how much it would do for me. 

Since my husband is an artist, I knew I couldn’t have pictures taken by just anyone.  I needed a professional.  Someone that had an eye for it because I am definitely not an artistic person but he teaches photography and would know if it was quality work.  I had admired Joslyn’s work from afar and all the beautiful women that she photographed but never dreamed I’d be in front of her camera.  When the time came to bite the bullet, I knew she was the professional photographer I needed. 
One that knew the right poses, lighting, and style to make an insecure woman feel good.  She did all that and more.  I had my hair and makeup done for the 1st shoot bc I figured if I was going to do this CRAZY thing, I wanted to go all out!  I was so nervous but she made me laugh.  I was self-conscious but she made me feel beautiful. Honestly,  I don’t even stand that close to naked in front of my hubby so you have to trust the person behind the camera. Haha. 

The end product was presented so professionally and I can’t imagine having done this with anyone else.  Enter session 2 a couple of years later…I showed up with my (unloaded of course) gun because my husband had gotten it for my birthday and I knew that a “sexy” picture with it would again surprise him. 

It was so much fun the 2nd time. 

My “one word” for 2019 is CONFIDENCE and I knew doing another session with Joslyn would challenge me but also give me a boost of confidence.  She helps me see someone that I don’t normally see when I look in the mirror.  Although I feel all sorts of emotions during the shoot and the reveal, the most prominent feeling is of a higher state of confidence. 

I’ll be back for more, there’s no doubt.  If you haven’t had professional photos taken of yourself before, you HAVE to book a session with Joslyn.  I would have never dreamed that I would, yet here I am going back for more.  Dive in.  I did and it has done more for me that I ever could have imagined. 

You are worth the investment.  You are just plain worth it.  Let Joslyn show you just how beautiful you are!”
