Proving to Yourself You are Beautiful and Sexy!

Heather came into the studio with her gorgeous long hair, tall and what I thought was PURE confidence. She just exuded that calm cool confident walk.
However, after reading her testimonials I learned that she was just as nervous as any other clients that has been in the studio. She wrote that she did the session because she lacked confidence in herself. She wanted “to prove to myself that I can be just as beautiful and sexy even at a bigger size”.

I was an absolute nervous wreck! I had plans and ideas for my session, several outfits picked out and had been saving to be able to afford it all. Then life and kids activities took over and all the rest went downhill. I was not able to get any of the wardrobe ideas I wanted, I took what I had that I even considered sexy or possibly bad just absolutely hoped that she would have something that fit and possibly looked good on as well. Things started going downhill so of course I freaked that it would roll over into my session.

Ladies this is SOOOO common. We plan and plan and well, life likes to laugh at us and say “NOPE—I have other plans for you”. Rest assure that I have you covered just as I did with Heather. The studio wardrobe ranges over many sizes from petite to plus.

  • How did you feel during your session?I felt absolutely amazing during my session! Some of the poses made me feel a little funny at first but once I saw the pictures I understood why she did it! Jennifer made it soo extremely comfortable and relaxing. I felt at ease with her and I knew from the start I could trust her and whatever pose she asked me go into. 

  • How did you feel after your session? Oh my goodness! I felt nervous, anxious and excited! I was so incredibly impatient waiting for my images to come back in! Not gonna lie, I would cause myself to overthink and start getting bad ideas but once I’d go back to the page and see all of the other beautiful shots, my worries would melt away. 

  • How did the studio make you feel about your experience? Great! Anything and everything I could have needed was available to me! It really made me feel like I was in the comfort of my own home.

  • What would you like to tell other people who are thinking about having a boudoir session Just freaking do it! You will not regret it! You will absolutely love it and it will truly do amazing things for your confidence levels. It’s also amazing just to have it done for yourself. What’s more empowering than creating some beautiful artwork of yourself for you and not trying to impress anyone else! It’s the experience of a lifetime!

Confessions of a Boudoir Session

Throughout the year I will post a link for a chance for YOU to be featured on the blog. This is a great way to hope others feel at ease about a session and see how it changed you as well. 

Fallon came into the studio and had this very strong presence about her. It all made sense when I learned she was law enforcement. I find these women extremely powerful and in awe of what they do everyday to help the lives of so many they do not even know. 

When I read her testimonial in her blog contact I was so moved that I made her feel so comfortable, and so at ease with her session. But I was SHOCKED to find out she had any confidence issues in her appearance. She is a gorgeous woman inside and out.

What made you decide to have a boudoir session?

I decided to have a boudoir session to dig out the confidence I carried within myself in my profession, but felt I lacked the confidence in my appearance that my husband screamed about daily.. Boy did that happen!! 

Was this for a milestone in your life? If so what?

I had worked VERY hard to get into shape and land my dream job as a Police Officer.. My session was just after my 2 year mark and a couple of months after marrying my soul mate. I felt it was time to do something for ME!

How did you feel before your session?

I lacked a self confidence about my appearance that I felt would hold me back from capturing the pictures I had In my head.So to say I was nervous would be a complete understatement. 

How did you feel during your session?

My session was amazing. Words can not express how confident and empowered you feel during and afterwards. 

How did you feel after your session

We as woman wear many hats during a single day.. My session showed me how I can be a woman in a predominantly male profession, wearing an unflattering uniform. Yet I can change hats and turn into a classy, confident woman, Mom and wife!! 

How did the studio make you feel about your experience?

The studio is beautiful!! I forgot I was inside a corner shop in my own town! The studio is so welcoming and private. I never had a concern about anyone interrupting my session. 

What would you like to tell other people who are thinking about having a boudoir session 

I believe this is an experience all woman at sometime should experience for themselves. Nothing I have ever done has made me look at myself and go WOW, like a boudoir session!

Not only will it be a great surprise but also a way to start your new journey with the empowering self image that is inside of you but might need a little boost!



Lauren came into the studio excited and nervous. She said she was not sure what to expect with the experience but after wrote it was a breeze and wonderful! 



"I felt so carefree, relaxed and baying excited of the arrival if my albums and art. The studio was amazing and beautiful. It made me feel so elegant! "



"If you’re feeling any part of nervous, lose that thought. It is so much fun and will defintely be worth every minute. Jennifer is amazing at what she does and I wouldnt recommend anyone else but her!!! I cannot wait for my soon to be husband to see these!!!"

Turning Nerves into Confidence at the Downtown Boudoir Studio

I love meeting new clients! A few weeks ago Samantha came in for a wedding anniversary gift after seeing others in my VIP group share their images.

She wrote about her experience at the studio and I wanted to share it with everyone to help anyone who wonders what a session could do for them!  (she gave permission:) 

Before her session she said she felt nervous because of body confidence issues. "I have turned 30 and had a child, so I am definitely not in the best shape of my life." 

During her session she wrote that she felt relaxed and confident. "Having my make up and hair done definitely made me feel better and Jennifer assured me that each pose was "beautiful. The studio felt very appropriate. The props and layout were perfect and made me excited to see the outcome. " 

What would you like to tell other people who are thinking about having a boudoir session 

"I would tell people to go for it! You will not be disappointed."


Documenting Thirty Boudoir Style

I recently asked my clients if they would want to blog about their experience at the studio and the reasons behind why they decided to do a boudoir session. The JT Noir Studios, located in Palatka Florida, has been told to me to be a beautiful addition over the years to the downtown area. I take pride in decorating the front store space with a classy, tasteful decor, along with a rich representation of my work. 

What many do not know is what happens behind those double doors. Some may think it could be scandalous, some may think it is downright dirty once someone walks into my studio. Thankfully I have never heard anyone say this, but I assume someone must not not my work (I know I am sure cool but not everyone is going to love me:) 

BUT the best part about the mystery is that what happens the moment you step beyond those doors is not what you gain, but what you leave behind. You leave behind the pressure of society to be a certain look. You leave behind the constraints of feeling it is vain to love yourself. And most importantly you leave behind any insecurities that may linger in your mind. 

When Courtney booked her consult to celebrate her 30th birthday I was very excited! I have known her for many years just around town, or even on facebook land but never truly knew her in person. She came in saying she was nervous but later told me that I made her feel "at home".  She wrote " I did not feel pushed to do anything I was not comfortable with and it came more natural than I thought it did. Jennifer was very patient and had so many creative ideas to go along with what I wanted" 

She went on further to mention that anyone thinking of doing a session "you should absolutely do it!" It brought out a side she wrote that she did not even know she had.  Her words to describe the studio and her experience said it all. 





"It was an experience I will never forget"
