Julia is a woman full of joy and energy and curves! She’s been working for ten years as a model, but I knew I could give her an experience and a set of images unlike any she’s had so far. She told me that shooting with me had been on her Bucket List for a long time and I was so excited when she decided to come in for a Clothing-Optional shoot. I absolutely adore photographing curvy women and it was so much fun photographing her.
And now a bit on her experience, from Julia:
“I responded to Jennifer’s model casting call for her new and personally stylized clothing optional boudoir photography project. I have admired her work for many years and was very grateful that she wanted to work with me. I absolutely love the simple and effective set-up of her studio, I have never really seen such elegant solutions for every day business needs.
As soon as I walked in I was warmly greeted by Jennifer and her multi-talented stylist and hair and makeup artist, Theresa. As usual, I brought way too many wardrobe options, and we got to work hanging up my items on her wardrobe rack with hangers provided for me and a space to lay out my jewelry and shoes etc. I already began to feel at home with her, brimming with creative energy, in her beautiful space with gorgeous vintage furniture (that I wanted to take home with me)
Even if I hadn’t come prepared, she has an extensive wardrobe, with everything from classic pieces in every size and silhouette. From ballgown to bodycon, she has it all from glitz and glam to va-va-voom and everything in-between. She also has has an impressive array of an accessory collection, including crowns to make you feel like royalty.
She and her stylist immediately got to work curating a personally stylized look especially for me to compliment my curves and show me in my best light. I felt pampered having an experience made just for me from start to finish. They chose the perfect color combinations for the mood and my eyes/skin, coordinated the jewelry stunningly.
Jennifer really has a knack for capturing people as they see themselves, and no one has really done that for me in my nine years as a model. I am truly grateful for the experience and I will have to come to her annually for updated shots as there is really nothing she can’t do.
She has a gift for bringing out the best in you and I am glad that I got to learn some new things about myself when I was truly able to love the skin I’m in.
These images are the culmination of years of hard work, of never giving up on myself, of picking myself off the floor, holding on to my authentic self and standing in my truth. These are the important things I see staring back at me through my own eyes; so more than just beauty.
When I was photographed by Jennifer, I got to see myself as I truly am, and that is a most beautiful and priceless gift.”
