Boudoir & Erotic photography in New Orleans

Rendezvous in the city of Sin - Meet me in New Orleans

Do you ever

long to leave everything behind? To get away from the drudgery of work and errands and responsibilities in order to indulge in desires you hardly ever dare whisper aloud?

The Crescent City’s wanton soul is electric.

You cannot walk its streets without feeling the titillating touch of its warm air and savory smells. Its heady jazz is intoxicating, and I dare you to walk the city without hiking your dress a little higher, swaying and sweating to a late night beat that seems to emanate from within the cobblestones themselves.

There is magic here.

A current that pulses with a fierce sensuality that cannot be contained within its glorious architecture. In this place of change and rebirth, there is nothing the city does not see or accept. Here, you are whiskey. You are absinthe. You are both fire and smoke, and no amount of clothes will be able to mask your scorching skin.

And why try to hide at all?

Let it go. Expose yourself. Offer New Orleans what you are scarcely ever able to offer the outside world - your truth laid bare. Let the camera tell your story as you unlock the shackles of your inhibition. This is not a place for secrets, but of revelation. You are a goddess, and every piece of art in the city worships you.

Have a lover you want to share your fantasies with? Bring him. Bring her. Explore the light and shadows your bodies can create together. This is your moment, and you alone decide who gets to witness it.

Will you do it?

Will you step away from everything comfortable in order to dare to be who you want to be? In order to let yourself feel as beautiful as this indomitable city ravished by floods? The answer lies within you already. Let the music of the streets fuel you. This is New Orleans. And you are oh so gloriously you.

Fear is something I try to acknowledge and allow myself to feel

That's what she said...

What was your biggest fear prior to your session?

Fear is something I try to acknowledge and allow myself to feel. My fears prior to this photo shoot consisted of not being able to let go and be sexy on camera. I've only had one photography look my whole life-look straight at the camera and smile! I also feared that the photos would not be perfection. I'm a life long perfectionist and want everything I do to be just that way. Once the clothes came off and the photo shoot started, my fear of not feeling sexy vanished and I focused completely on Jen's directions. I had to release the perfectionism and embrace the real me in that moment. Was I perfect? No but I was still stunning.

What was your favorite part?

It is cliche to say but it is empowering. To know that I am capable of oozing sexuality and showcasing excellent physical condition at my age is uplifting and motivating-hopefully not just to me, but to others as well. I also loved the creative aspect of the photo shoot and experimenting with the human form.

How would you describe your experience to your best friend?

I would say you just have to do this for yourself. Every woman and man should...the experience can not really be described. I would say though that the resulting photographs tell a story and the process allows you to love and accept your body and spirit completely.

Would you do it again?

In a heartbeat. I want to explore outdoor scenic boudoir photography!

That's what she said.... | Charlottesville Boudoir Photography

That's what she said...

My favorite part of the session was...

"How comfortable Jen made me feel from the first email exchange we had. She was genuinely excited to work with me and I felt like she quickly understood what I wanted from the photo shoot. Jen is so good at directing, which is key to getting a good photo. She told me exactly what to do and how to pose and I didn't have to think about it or feel awkward. I felt really good and I had fun while she photographed me. And I don't like to be photographed normally!"

Her biggest fear...

"That I would feel completely nervous and self-conscious and look really stiff and not sexy in the photos."

So THIS happened in my front yard...

Yep.  That's right.  I got to do an outdoor boudoir photo shoot in my yard today. It was actually my front yard, not my backyard.  I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to live on 10 beautiful, serene (and private) acres.  My home is my idea of paradise.  Golden rolling hills dipping down into a refreshing pond that I've spent many summer days in.  I love being able to combine my paradise with my passion and create beautiful photos, right here at home.  I didn't even have to put shoes on for this shoot because I didn't leave my house!

Charlottesville | Couple's Boudoir Photography

I looooove couple's boudoir photography! It's a totally different ball game than a solo boudoir session. The focus is turned on to your lover instead of the camera or yourself.  There's no need for acting to create passion, it's already there.  And it's real.  And you just can't beat that.  It allows you to be seductive and playful with your partner in new ways, ways that you may have never experienced together.  It's a good reminder of the connection between the two of you.

New Orleans Boudoir Photography & Testimonial

"Every woman should do Boudoir AT LEAST once. EVERY WOMAN. Sexuality is, and always has been such an important part of who I am, but I always felt like it wasn’t okay to express it unless I looked a certain way. In a way, I was in hiding. And my heart breaks for all other beautiful women who feel inhibited by shame or guilt because they feel like they don’t look the “part.” Once I realized I will never look like American culture tells me I should, I started to allow myself to experience what sensuality feels like in my own, unique body. And it is that allowing of experiencing and expressing that is more liberating than I have words to describe. Working with Jen is so profound for this reason. She puts you at ease and is extremely established in her craft, so you get the sense that everything is taken care of and you can just have some fun! At this point you are able to come out of hiding and say, “Hello world, Here I am in all my glorious me-ness!!!” So not only do you get that visceral experience of what it feels like to express yourself sensually, but after the fact when you see the pictures, you see yourself in a way you never imagined. You realize, “Hey, I’ve been sexy all along! Look at my curves how beautiful they look bathed in light!!” I truly hope more women experience working with Jen!!! And learn how to fall in love with their bodies. It is a powerful thing reflecting on this session, and realizing how important of an event it is for my journey towards self love and acceptance."

The Best Compliment EVER!

Julie and I did this boudoir shoot in the beginning of the year in Richmond, Virginia as a wedding gift for her soon to be husband.  We waited to post it until after her wedding so we could keep it a surprise. I got all giddy when she contacted me, the way I always do when fellow photographers contact me to do a shoot.  It's the best compliment I could possibly get.  Another professional photographer, someone who is in the industry and has the critical and creative eye wants me to do her shoot?  HELL YEAH!  I felt absolutely honored that she loved my work and trusted me to do her shoot.

I'm going to get a little real here. I know it's silly, but I always get nervous when photographing other photographers still, even though I've done it a dozen or so times.  I just feel like photographers know what they like, and know what they're looking at when it comes to lighting, posing, composition, etc.  Deep in my bones I know that I know what I'm doing.  I've been doing this for almost 8 years now. And I know that they wouldn't be hiring me if they didn't like my style... but damn it, that self judgement snaps in and I'm questioning my work.  I am human, after all.  In the end I feel like we knocked her shoot out of the park.  She was thrilled with the photos, as was I.

And I know I've said this before... but I'm so in love with that tub!!!!  This place is definitely my favorite hotel to shoot in in Virginia.  Consider me smitten.  =^.^=

ANNNND!!!!

I'm SOOOO thrilled that Julie did a shoot with me because she used her own makeup artist, Nicole Laughlin, who I ended up falling in loooove with!  So I stole her for my own shoots.  =)  She's laid back with a positive attitude, which makes her fun to work with!  She has 15+ years of experience in the hair and makeup industry.  Nicole is amazingly talented at what she does, she can rock the all out glam look one day then do a natural and timeless look flawlessly the next.  She's skilled with working with all skin types, ages, and colors.  You can check out Nicole's website HERE and follow her work on Instagram HERE
