HEY THERE, BEAUTIFUL!
Welcome to Jesseca Bellemare Photography, where women come to see their unique beauty! We are here to help you build your self worth so that you can finally feel comfortable in your own skin and live a more joyful, empowered life!
We are so excited that you are here to find out more about us and how we can help you feel like the gorgeous, strong and empowered woman that you truly are!
We know that choosing a Boudoir Photographer can feel intimidating. We are here to help you feel comfortable and confident in this process!
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!
OUR MISSION AND PURPOSE
Boudoir clients come to us because they desire to feel beautiful and confident in their own skin.
Our mission and Purpose is to help women see themselves as others do: gorgeous, strong, empowered and confident! We want every woman who walks into the studio feel seen and accepted just as they are.
We also want to create stunning and intimate gifts that accentuate the parts they love about themselves, as well as the parts they are learning to love.
We provide an experience unlike any other: a full day dedicated to supporting YOU; wherever you are in your life, we support YOU!
This is a day that will be tucked deeply into your heart, accessible to you whenever you are feeling insecure; whenever you need some encouragement and reassurance, your images will remind you of, not only your day with us, but that you ARE beautiful, powerful and strong enough to face anything that comes your way.
This isn’t just a photo shoot, this is a day with two girlfriends you never knew you had, two women who have been through the trenches and came out stronger, wiser and more beautiful then they ever imagined they could be.
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!
So now that we got those two major concerns out of the way, sit back, relax and let’s chat about who we are, what our beliefs are and if we are the right fit for you!
“I felt nervous, selfish, and covered in flaws I had no idea how to hide. Bit the bullet and walked timidly into a gorgeous studio with two beautiful, bubbly, and friendly women. I was treated like a friend, not a client. When I got my pictures, I was floored. I stared at them in disbelief! Was this me?!? A stay at home mother of five?!? When I handed my husband his Boudoir book, his face said it all. If you’re on the fence – jump over it!!! Do it for yourself!!! I promise, you won’t regret it.“-Amanda
WHO ARE WE?
JESSECA BELLEMARE | Owner + Photographer
I had a deeply rooted story about what kind of love I was worthy of, especially self love.
I struggled with self confidence and insecurities for most of my life and consequently, I have been on a journey of self discovery, understanding and acceptance for as long as I can remember.
Early in my career I committed to creating a series of self portraits. And this, girlfriend, is when everything changed.
As I studied my self portraiture, the initial picking apart of my “flaws” transformed into something else: I began to become curious about my unique features. Through this curiosity, I began to see the beauty in my uniqueness and I finally saw how all of my individual pieces fit into one perfectly imperfect and absolutely beautiful whole.
This very personal project will forever be held within my heart because it truly changed the way I see myself.
Therefore, my wish is to photograph any woman who has ever looked in the mirror and saw her flaws instead of her beauty. I have a burning desire to help women change their inner stories into ones with beautiful endings.

“Working with Jesseca was a blast. I felt from the minute I walked in, they were more like friends than someone I just met. I felt totally pampered while I was transformed during the professional hair and make up application. My photo shoot was very relaxed and fun, they made me feel beautiful and sexy the entire shoot. And my photos….WOW…they turned out amazing!”– Jessica
HOW TO BOOK A SHOOT
To book your shoot, all that is required is the $400 non-refundable session fee ($100 of this will be applied towards your collection purchase).
A lot of our clients book 3-6 months in advance to allow time to shop and save for their favorite products.
In addition, we do provide pre-payment plans and post-payment plans so that by the time of your Same Day Image Reveal you seriously have nothing to worry about but picking out your favorite images!
Most women have been following us for years, so by the time they finally book their shoot they are thrilled to invest in themselves and want to go BIG!
This is why the pre-payment plans are so amazing because it allows them to not second guess themselves, but instead truly get what they really want once they see their images!
NOTE: If you choose a pre-payment plan you will receive a complimentary bonus gift valued at $250!
Don’t want to wait? Feeling inspired NOW?! Go ahead and book online now!

THE STUDIO EXPERIENCE
Upon arriving to the studio you will be greeted by Jesseca and escorted to the Wardrobe Room. This is YOUR room for the day and you are welcome to use anything in it! Clothing! Shoes! Fabrics! Accessories! Yes please! We will narrow down to three outfits together.
You will then change into a comfy studio robe and slide into hair and makeup. My professional Hair + Makeup Artist will ask you a few simple questions to get a feel for the look you are going for. If you have no idea that’s ok too! She’s amazing!
While she gets to work we will listen to music and chat about life as you sip on a complimentary beverage of your choice (Mimosa please!).
IT’S SHOOT TIME!
After hair and makeup you will slip into your first outfit and Jesseca will walk you through the entire process of being photographed. Every part of you from your head to your pinky toe will be coached, so don’t worry about a thing! We will change backdrops with every outfit and you will be photographed from various angles in order to create variety in your images.
ONCE AGAIN: YOU DON’T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT POSING; WE WILL DIRECT YOU THE ENTIRE WAY.
AFTER THE SESSION:
We will take a short break once we are done shooting. During this time you will be provided with a tasty charcuterie board and beverages while you flip through product samples and Jesseca transfers images from her camera. Before you know it, it will be time to look at your ah-mazing images! You will absolutely be floored at what you see on the big screen! I promise!
Once we narrow down to your favorite images you will decide (if you haven’t already) how you would like to display your jaw dropping images. A book? A Boudoir Babe Magazine? Wall Art? It’s completely up to you, girl! You can’t get it wrong!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
LET ME EASE YOUR FEARS, GIRL
SHOULD I LOSE A FEW POUNDS FIRST?
Look, I get it. After watching my body morph multiple times as a Mother of three children, my body and perception of it will never be the same. I will never rock my pre-baby frame again, but you know what? I’m okay with that! I have grown to not only embrace my curves, but to love them. ALL BODIES are beautiful! However, if this is a concern of yours, then this is where we step in and lead the way, making you look your very best through the use of lighting, posing and wardrobe. After all, the ultimate goal here is to show you how amazingly beautiful you are right now, just as you are.
WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MY BODY?
So just go ahead and cut yourself some slack on this one because unless you are a professional model or dancer, you are not going to know what to do with your body. This is my job. I know how to coach you through body movements, poses and facial expressions. You will be amazed by how easy it actually is when someone with experience is guiding you through the process.
WHAT IF MY IMAGES DON’T LOOK LIKE THE WOMEN ON YOUR WEBSITE?
Imagery is powerful. It can transform the way we see the world, but more importantly, the way we see ourselves. Here’s the truth, ladies: celebrating that you are THE ONE AND ONLY YOU is liberating. There is freedom in surrendering and accepting yourself as you are right now. With that said, yes, you absolutely will! How do I know this? Because each and every woman we photograph has felt that exact same way!!
WHAT IF I’M CRAZY NERVOUS ABOUT DOING A BOUDOIR SHOOT?
Well, let me tell you that 99% of the women I photograph are definitely crazy nervous before their photo shoot. In fact, I might be a little concerned if they weren’t! It’s a pretty big deal to get in front of a camera, period…but even more so in lingerie or less! But look, those butterflies are not only an indication of how important this experience is to you, but those flutters also bring to light that individual fears and vulnerabilities are being faced and embraced…and that, my friends, is a beautiful thing.
DO YOU ALWAYS PUBLICLY SHARE IMAGES?
Absolutely not! You have complete control over this. Some women are honored to have their images on my website while others wish to keep their images private. Either way is perfect!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK A SESSION?
My calendar fills up quick, so the sooner the better! Final product will be delivered within ten business days of purchase, so if you have a certain something special you are doing this for, get yourself on our calendar!
“Thank you very much for not only saying “plus size” woman are beautiful and we should embrace our curves, but your photos showed me that statement could be true! I’ve done the other glamour shots, and walked away feeling uncomfortable and not liking a single picture. Happily you were different! Your personality and talent really makes all the difference in the world! Would I recommend you? Hell yes! Somewhere down the line when my curves are smaller I will want that portion of my life documented too. Thanks, you’re a real confidence builder and gave me permission to recognize that my curves can be beautiful if I really look and don’t judge.”-Cindy
