Well, you're actually half right/half wrong. These women ARE completely gorgeous. That's a fact!
Appreciating your body as it is. Right now.
Recognising that you've NEVER lost your sexy. EVER...
Documenting your beauty, growth & amazing self even if you haven't hit your milestones!
Choosing to celebrate yourself for a change when you do hit that milestone, get the promotion, or turn 40, 50, 60+ years old.
Remembering that you don't have to be so hard on yourself, and show yourself some self-love.
It's okay to spend money on yourself, live a little, and feel drop dead gorgeous every once in a while!
I know what you're thinking- "These women look like models. They aren't just your average everyday-women that you see at the supermarket or school pick-up."
BUT THESE ARE 100% EVERYDAY-WOMEN. THESE ARE DOCTORS, STAY AT HOME MUMS, LAWYERS, JUDGES, POLICE OFFICERS, KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS, GIRLFRIENDS, FIANCEES, WIVES, MOTHERS, GRANDMOTHERS AND SO MUCH MORE!
From the moment I spoke to Jac about my photography session, I felt comfortable and excited.
When I met Jac in person, I felt like we have been friends forever.
She made me feel relaxed and at ease with my body, especially in the more provocative outfits and poses.
This session was meant to be a gift for my husband, which he absolutely loved by the way, but in the end it was the greatest gift for me.
I gained a self confidence and inner self love for my body that I haven’t felt as a mum for a long time.
I couldn’t believe it was me in the photos and now I feel sexier and empowered.
Thank you Jac. Xxx
"Jac is amazing behind the camera. She makes you feel comfortable and empowered with every shot! With my shoot she made me love my body and myself so much more then before I walked through her doors.
Thank you so so much Jac!
What a truly amazing experience"
"I wasn't actively looking for a Boudoir Photographer, but I'm so glad I did this! A professional, intimate setting. Feel comfortable as soon as you walk in the door! Jac really knows how to set the mood and help make you feel gorgeous - whether in your own clothes or lack of! ;)
The photo quality is just divine! Will treasure my prints for years to come!!"
"This opportunity was the perfect experience to appreciate my post-menopausal body.
My relationship with my partner has changed in that it has deepened the joy and also strengthened my friendships.
I was expertly guided through what I should bring along and I felt well prepared not having to worry about worry about a thing.
On the day, I was treated to gorgeous hair and makeup and Jacinta managed the images around the outfits she helped prepare me with.
The whole experience was professional and discreet. I was allowed the freedom to be provocative but if I didn’t want to that was ok too.
The final images were timeless and classy and I adore them"
"After experiencing domestic violence, my self worth had reached rock bottom. I knew going in that the experience was going to be amazing but it exceeded all of my expectations!
As soon as my shoot was booked, I felt taken care of. I was provided with all the information I needed to get ready for my big day. When that day arrived, I was nervous about messing it all up but Jac's team made me feel at ease right away. The shoot flew by and I had a blast. At my photo reveal, I was honestly speechless. You captured how I feel like I want to look.
Definitely was a confidence booster. I'm in a weird season of life and feel like it was just what I needed to heal…..”
"In a society where increasingly, I had to do more, be more, commit more time, achieve more... arghh... What about what I want?? It gets to a point, where as a mother, and a partner, all the to-do’s and musts and the "shoulds" trump anything I do for me.
Well for this one day, I stepped out of the real world, and into a magical space where it was about ME. I got into my body, I showed my body, and it was all about me.
Feeling powerful, feeling feminine, feeling lush, feeling sovereign, feeling like ME again. This is what these photos represent me, and they make me feel like the empress I want to be"
"The entire experience was fantastic. Jac made me feel so free and confident so getting into all the outfits & the perfect positions was great fun.
This shoot just reinforced how grateful I am to the body that has carried me through my 40 years. This has included 6 abdominal/bowel operations, two children and one from an IVF journey. This boosted my self confidence and love of my body.
This was brilliant and far better than I could have expected. There was no need to be shy or nervous. I felt so at ease with Jac and the session.
I wouldn't change a thing it was amazing.
I highly recommend having a boudoir photography experience at least once in your lifetime."
"It really just felt like the right time do something for me and embrace turning 40 and being fabulous.
I loved the whole thing, bust mostly how comfortable I felt throughout the entire process.
For the first time in a long time, when I look at myself and think, Wow! I am hot and OMG that butt!
I was hoping for no cheese factor and I have to say that this experience exceeded all my expectations in every way.
The whole thing! And no, I wouldn’t change it!
Jac, you are amazing!"
"I’ve never done a boudoir shoot before and originally wanted to do it as a present for my fiancé, but I think it ended being more something for me!
My favourite part of the session was getting all dolled up! Because of covid I haven't done it in a long time and it just felt amazing to get to do it!
And seeing the photos! Omg it's amazing! I definitely feel so much more confident in my self after seeing these photos! I can't stop looking at them!!
Jac was amazing she definitely make the whole experience amazing and made me feel confident, no awkwardness at all!
Sitting down and picking the photos was the most challenging! And designing the album
I'm obsessed!! Thank you Jac!"
