Hi I’m Jenn! I run a boudoir photography studio in Gainesville Georgia (just north of Atlanta). I’m currently living in Flowery Branch, GA with G-Money, Sugar, Bandit and Kimber (aka Gavin =our son, Chris =my hunk and Bandit & Kimber = our fur-babies). Believe it or not, I’m a full time ER nurse which is actually convenient because I work three days a week and I’m able to run the studio full time as well! I’ve been in emergency medicine since 2006. I am so blessed to have two careers that I’m passionate about.
My purpose? My reason why? Its simple: I believe it’s time to overcome the ancient views of sexuality and the double standards we all learn growing up. Women are shunned for showing pictures in swim suits but men can post topless gym pictures no big deal, young girls are body shammed for wearing tight clothing (um, hello United Airlines for kicking two girls off for wearing leggings); they grow up with eating disorders and body dysmorphia because of what society and media tells them they should look like.
It’s time to own your sexuality and change the view of what sexy is to you and society. This is a life changing event, an investment in yourself and your happiness. I use the term “empowering” a lot, but that’s exactly what it is! This is an experience that will push you to love and appreciate yourself, it will show you that you are worthy of so much more. My studio was a dream that I never thought would happen. Photography isn’t my “career” — boudoir photography is my passion and it’s my choice, I don’t do it for the financial aspect I do it because I believe in it. I removed all other photography services this year because I choose to focus only on boudoir. Life is too short to regret anything, so while I have the studio I intend to photograph and empower as many women as I can.
Women come to the studio with a vision of what they want, it’s my job to push your boundaries and expand your views to make this an incredible experience. Most clients think they want the light and fluffy pictures, but once they see their images 90% of the products I create include images where I pushed them past their comfort zone. Yes they’re suggestive, yes they’re raw, but they’re also beautiful and empowering. They’re not pornographic. I never have a client touch themselves – I use angles to make it appear that way.
Women need to feel beautiful, we need to feel desired and appreciated. We can do all that for ourselves through a boudoir session PLUS if you have a partner they will have a new appreciation and desire for you as well. Once you see yourself through my lens, you’ll see a whole new side you never knew existed.
Mirrored Images Boudoir is the only boudoir studio in Gainesville Georgia. This is my specialty, my passion, and my mission. I’ve been photographing boudoir since 2008 and know exactly what each client needs and how to get them there. From the moment you contact me the experience begins and I am here to walk you through every step to make this the best experience and boudoir session that you could possibly have.
