EEEEK!!!!! I’m so so so so so so excited right now! As you can tell I’ve been away for a while! The husband man and I spent most of February enjoying a little bit of time off before the wedding season begins again! We went snowboarding and spent time with beautiful friends and the last trip we took was to Vegas for the annual Wedding and Portrait photographers conference! The conference is always something that gets the wheels turning. It gets us fired up! It gets us excited about our businesses again and creates a whole new list of to do’s to begin making changes and implementing new ideas.  Sometimes that can be stressful or overwhelming. But this year I’ve walked away with a new sense of clarity. I’m so excited for what’s to come. I’m already working hard on some changes for Je-T’adore as you might can see from the change in the masthead.

I’m no longer a “boudoir” photographer. What does that mean? I guess nothing really- I will still happily photograph beautiful women in lingerie- but Je-T’adore is becoming so much more than that. Je-T’adore is about the woman. It’s about the beauty. And a woman does not have to be wearing lingerie to be beautiful/alluring/sexy/confident…the list goes on. When I started this whole thing, I wanted Je-T’adore to be for EVERY woman. Not just young newlyweds, not just the bold women who felt comfortable enough to shoot boudoir- but really for every woman.  Whether in lingerie, or a dress, or blue jeans for all I care- Je-T’adore is about your beauty and about capturing that with my camera and hopefully helping you see that about yourself.

My head is spinning and the ideas are literally giving me a headache – but I’m so excited for what is happening! I started today making changes for this business and I quickly realized it’s not going to be easy. I need a LOT of practice. But I’m so thankful for the friends and family that are supporting me and pushing me through and being gracious and patient with me as I practice on them! 😉  I’ll be doing a series of blog posts soon about all of this, so this is just the beginning! But I wanted to give you a little taste!

Hope you guys like it!

With springtime just around the corner I’m loving all the new bright and colorful spring fashion previews! And it’s no different for your lingerie! There is some FUN stuff out there! I couldn’t help but share! Hope you guys enjoy!

The first group is from Victoria’s Secret. I know, that’s too easy…but seriously? I just love Victoria’s Secret! They know exactly what they are doing and make some of the most fun and sexy lingerie out there!! Their new spring collection is gorgeous! I LOVE all the bright colors and floral patterns. These are just a few of my favorites!

The next set is from Betsy Johnson Lingerie! And I love how sweet and beautiful these pieces are! The purple is obviously my favorite- I love the lace detail, but you really can’t go wrong with any of these pieces! 

Lastly, Frederick’s of Hollywood has some gorgeous bright pastel colored spring lingerie that would be perfect for a Springtime boudoir session!! Check them out! They are always having sales and free shipping so there’s really no excuse to not pick up a few pieces to add to your collection!

Lately I’ve been obsessing over makeup. I’ve always loved makeup. When I was little one of my aunt’s got me a makeup book and I looked through that thing ALL the time. Now I see my sweet little cousins always wanting to try on some lip gloss or put on a little bit of blush…the more they can get their hands on the better- and although I don’t think little girls need to wear makeup- it’s something that is just bred into every little girl that they like to play and get dressed up! 😉

If you haven’t heard of the Urban Decay Naked palette then I have to ask…have you been living under a rock?!?! Haha Okay maybe that’s extreme…but seriously, this palette is so popular it was sold out for a really long time and they’ve just come out with a Naked Palette 2! For the average girl if you’re gonna invest any money into some good eyeshadow’s that aren’t crazy colors like bright blue and green and yellow…this is for you! It is FULL of  the perfect mix of beautiful shimmer and matte neutral eyeshadows that ANY girl will look great in. The only problem? The price tag on this beauty is kind of outrageous! At $50 you can be on your way to beautiful natural and fun looking makeup! BUT…if that price is a little too steep for your budget…

Check out the NYX 10 color eyeshadow palette in Champagne and Caviar! You get some similar neutral shades at a fraction of the cost!! Yep all 10 of these beautiful eyeshadows can be your’s for only $10.99!! AH! I love a good bargain! If you’re shopping in Lubbock you can pick up either of these palettes at Ulta or online here and here!

Happy neutral eyeshadows!

Did anyone else catch a glimpse of all the glamorous stars on the red carpet for the Golden Globes?!?! I’m not ususally one to know exactly when the red carpet events are happening and block off the exact time to sit in front of the TV and watch it all- But as I was searching the TV guide and happened upon E’s coverage of all the movie stars walking the red carpet I thought eh why not, I’ll record it and watch it later when I have some alone time! So I did…and I got to fast forward through all the boring parts and the commercials of course, but oh my it was so fun to see what all the stars were wearing, how they wore their hair and makeup and I thought this is such good inspiration for my boudoir!! So I thought I’d dish out my favorite looks and see what you guys thought! 🙂

Let’s start with Guiliana Rancic of E! News! Seriously?! I kind of have a girl crush on her! I love her show with her hubby Guiliana & Bill and I know I don’t know her, but I’m pretty sure we’d be great friends if I did! 😉 She just seems like such a sweetheart! I LOVED her makeup! The all-over bronze-ish brown wash eyeshadow was stunning and such a fun change-up from the usual smokey eye! I have to admit, I also loved her baby pink nail polish. So classy and sweet! 

Next up is Charlize Theron. What’s there to say? I’m pretty sure she won like best dressed or something, but I loved her overall nude/natural look! And the sparkly diamond headband?! Come on, how fun is that?! 

Yes, Jessica Biel always looks great, but I LOVEd bright pink lips! This picture doesn’t shot it that well, but her lips were definitely the focal point for her makeup and it was such a fun, beautiful pink color! I love that switch up instead of a nude lip!

Next is Emma stone- I loved her dramatic cat eye liner! It was very bold and looked great with her red hair, and made her eyes stand out so much!! Gorgeous and fun! 
Next up is Dianna Agron from Glee and she gets my award for the best Red Lip! I mean, that’s how you wear a red lip for sure! It was absolutely stunning!
And last, but not least Reese Witherspoon looked great as always! Her barely there curls and lots of volume make the perfect hairstyle for boudoir! And her makeup was so fresh and bright it looked like she was glowing!

Just think, these movie stars have a number of reasons to get dolled up, get their hair and makeup done by professionals and then go get their pictures made. Of COURSE they look gorgeous! But that doesn’t mean you can’t do the same! Spoil yourself a little with a day of pampering…and be sure to call me while you’re at it! 😉
