We know that choosing a Boudoir Photographer can feel intimidating. We are here to help you feel comfortable and confident in this process!
Beauty is not easily defined; it is something that each of us has to find and more importantly, feel on our own. This, undoubtedly, requires a unique and intimate exploration into oneself. Beauty and Boudoir Photography provide us with one exciting and incredibly satisfying avenue of experiencing ourselves and our own unique beauty. Not only will you love the images we create together, but you will amaze yourself. And this, my friend, has been known to cause increased self esteem and feelings of empowerment.
Do you fear that your body is not “good enough” as it is because it has changed with bearing age, stress or children? Or maybe you’re afraid that if you take the plunge, your images won’t look like those you see on my social media or Boudoir site?
Well, girlfriend! Most of our clients feel this way because they don’t know the process and they are not sure how things work, so let me break it down for you!
LET ME ASSURE YOU OF A COUPLE THINGS FIRST:
1. You are in good hands with us. Hundreds of women have walked through our door feeling just as nervous, anxious and doubtful. But you know what? They walk out feeling like the beautiful, strong, empowered Goddesses that they truly are!
2. Our clients are everyday women who prefer to keep their images private. So rest assured, you will have complete control over this choice. These are your images, girlfriend!
The whole idea still make you feel a little (or a lot) nervous? Be sure to watch the Behind the Scenes video below, take a short walk through the process, be sure to check out All the Important Things: A List of Top Posts and scroll through past sessions on the blog; these might help you feel a bit more at ease.
Looking for even more out of your Boudoir experience? The Ambassador program is an amazing way to grow and to meet new influential and beautiful women, like yourself. The Ambassador program is about growing a brand that carries on our beliefs and messages. It was designed as a way to give back by selecting a few women in the Asheville, North Carolina community for fun and creative photo sessions to wow their friends and get them thinking about doing their own sessions. The Ambassador program is designed to be about teamwork, creating a community of women that enjoy celebrating their bodies, enjoy having their pictures taken and talking about their experiences with other women. Check out the details and apply for The Ambassador Program here or reach out about a standard session here! And don’t forget to watch the Behind the Scenes video below!
“I Cannot tell you all how wonderful it was to work with Jesseca. I had a Boudoir session and, having never been photographed by a professional, was terribly ill at ease – down right scared actually. Not only did they make me feel comfortable but they made me feel more beautiful than I ever imagined I could feel. The photos are, to me, spectacular and I am going to do this again.
I’m telling all my female friends (and showing them the pictures) because I think they should all have this experience!”

DO I USE NATURAL OR STUDIO LIGHTING?
I am a natural light Photographer. I just love the soft, relaxed, natural feel and look of sunlight and therefore do not use artificial studio lighting.
