Hi! I'm Jen Fox, your boudoir photographer!
My journey started out in psychology. I wanted to help women with self esteem and self worth issues. Life had other plans for me and my path was diverted elsewhere. Years later I went back to school for fine art photography and started my career in boudoir photography before I graduated. At that time I hadn’t quite put together yet that my journey had come full circle, and I was doing exactly what I had intended to do when I started out. It wasn’t until the tears of happiness and discovery started falling when my clients started to see the photos of themselves that I realized I was changing lives.
I WAS INSTANTLY HOOKED.
Boudoir photography is my heart and soul. I couldn’t imagine another career that would be more perfect for me. Helping other women to transform their lives is the most fulfilling thing I’ve ever experienced!
Who am I and why am I a boudoir photographer?
I'm a wild woman at heart. I love dancing barefoot around a fire and howling with delight. I'm fascinated by circus arts: balance training, acro yoga, and dancing with fire and silk. I like to eat healthy (or try to), listen to good music and laugh as often as possible. Nature is my church. When I need solace after a hard day I wander off into the woods or mountains to ground myself. Travel is my sanity. I have a burning curiosity to see all the world has to offer. I have two wonderful rescue dogs that have my heart, Goose & Kaiser. I'm madly in love with my partner, Geoff. He makes me believe him when he calls me a goddess.
It took me 33 years to be able to say that. I've struggled with my self image for as long as I can remember. These days I'm having WAY more good self image days than bad, and it's been quite a journey to get where I'm at. I've learned to appreciate what my body does for me, how to show myself love like a lover would, and to embrace the things I perceive as flaws. I've learned that it's not what I'm seeing in the mirror that I'm reacting to, but how I'm feeling on the inside. I noticed that one day I would love the way I looked and feel good about myself, then the very next I would feel gross. Nothing physically changed on my body though! So I stopped giving the negativity so much weight and started working on identifying and managing my thoughts.
I would love to bottle up my self love journey and share it with others as much as possible. That's the reason I'm a boudoir photographer. I know the pain of not feeling comfortable in your own skin. I know the freedom and peace that self acceptance brings. I want every woman to feel that liberation from self doubt. Boudoir photography offers you a glimpse of how you look through other people's eyes, and that glimpse can change a lot.
I'm also not naive, I know a boudoir session isn't a cure all, it's just a step in your own transformational journey. I would be honored if you would like to take that step with me.
