This is Jenna! Recently, she came to my Salt Lake boudoir studio for her shoot. Jenna is one of the sweetest woman you will ever meet. I’ve been lucky enough to know Jenna since we went to school together and even back then everyone loved her! Not only was she silly and fun (with a smile and laugh that are completely contagious) but it didn’t seem to matter who you were, popular or not, she was your friend and she made you feel important. And of course the grown-up (hard working professional, wife, and mother) Jenna is just as amazing!! Her shoot was full of laughs and silly moments and we had so much fun. Keep reading to hear what Jenna thoughts about her shoot.
I really wanted to surprise the Hubs with an awesome gift and I thought, who could resist a sexy little album full of your beautiful wife?! (thanks to Maggie!)
Being exposed in natural light, little clothing, and letting it all hang out. I have a lot of insecurities and ‘trouble zones’ so of course, as most women would be, I was terrified of the raw image the camera would capture. I actually had my shoot scheduled and a few weeks before and I wrote Maggie about all my insecurities and wanting to reschedule! I wasn’t comfortable with my body and I wanted a couple more months to lose weight or simply feel better about myself. Maggie was so supportive and let me push the date back. She wrote me an email about the fears of our bodies and that it’s her job to pose you in ways that minimize your trouble areas and maximize your most loved areas.I did as Maggie said and simply had fun! I had complete trust that Maggie would pose me in ways that would hide any imperfection (that I feel I have) and make those photographs look amazing! Instead of thinking about how much weight I want to loose, or what I’d like to tone up – I thought about how grateful I am for the body that I do have and how beautiful my husband always says I am. It’s all in the head, right? As much as I wanted to wear more scandalous outfits, I chose items that would cover up the areas that concern me and I knew I would feel comfortable in.
I was honestly speechless! There was one of my bum and I asked Maggie, “Is that mine?!” Obviously I don’t get back there too often, but (no pun intended) I was seriously impressed with that tush! I couldn’t get over how beautiful all the pictures were and that it was me! Maggie definitely knows how to make you feel good about yourself!I would say its pretty comparable. I wish my skin looked flawless every day and I know I’d have more confidence!Laughing with Maggie! For being a ‘sexy’ boudoir shoot, you wouldn’t expect to be making jokes and laughing the whole time. I loved everything about it and I have already said that I want to try and make this an annual event! From the hair and makeup, to feeling sexy outfits, and having my boobs looking fabulous (which doesn’t happen in the normal world) it was such a fun experience and left me wanting more!
I absolutely LOVED working with Maggie! She is so sweet and genuine that it’s hard to feel uncomfortable around her. You can tell that she is respecting what you want and honestly taking into consideration the needs of your body. She is very respectful and makes you feel beautiful when you are truly in a vulnerable state.
