Strength and Beauty – Milwaukee, WI Boudoir Photographer

April 29, 2019

Everyone once in a while I get a client that just oozes confidence. I would say it’s more often than not that I have to slowly coax that confidence out of my clients. Which is perfectly fine and what I feel I am quite good at doing. That said, Ms. W brought it on her own and what a fun time we had!

It reminds me that we are all on our own journey to self love and acceptance. We are all a work in progress and we’ll all get there in our own time.

What is your age? 42

What do you do for a living? Hairstylist

What made you decide to book a boudoir shoot?
I wanted to feel confident and sexy about myself. To see a powerfully sensual version of myself. To one day look back at these photos and see my strength and beauty

Did you have any fears going into your session?
I had no fears going in.

How was the actual session different from what you expected (if at all)?
The session was AMAZING! Jolene has such a professional confidence that immediately makes you comfortable with yourself and the environment. She’s able to read a person’s comfort level and position them confidently to reflect their most beautiful sides.

What was your favorite part of the entire experience? (hair and makeup, the shoot, image reveal, giving the images etc..)
The reveal was most exciting….the shoot was fun and confident and relaxing even, but seeing Jolene’s angles, lighting and interpretation of me was amazing! She captured everything I was feeling and hoping to present.

What is your advice for women interested in a boudoir experience?
Women need to feel beautiful from the inside out, regardless of who is or is not telling them they are. Woman of all shapes and sizes would 100% love the way they feel about themselves after a day with Jolene!

Did anything change about the way you see your own beauty as a result of your experience?
MY confidence and self-talk has changed for the better. Every woman wants to hear that they are beautiful and sexy, but to truly know it of yourself is to walk a little taller and smile a little bigger. We have the secret of knowing what lies inside and how it can be shown when someone values us the way we do ourselves!

About jolene

As a photographer, the significance of intent cannot be overstated. I create photographs of women for themselves first and foremost. While some clients may choose to share their pictures with their significant others, my primary objective is to craft imagery for YOU first and foremost. I want you to look at your images and FEEL something. I want your images make you feel powerful, confident and self aware. I want your images to remind you of where you are right now. What you’ve overcome and where you are heading.

I photographed my first boudoir photoshoot in 2007, and since then I have been in absolute awe of what boudoir shoots do for women and their self confidence. As a woman myself I completely understand the struggle.  It’s getting better out there, but we are still constantly bombarded with messages of not being good enough. […]
