I’ll probably always talk about how I got into boudoir photography, why I decided to start shooting it. Why I have a passion for making a woman feel beautiful. Why it’s so worthwhile to me to be in a business that celebrates women. The moms, the brides, the wives, the friends & sisters. It’s because the world is desperate for more women who love themselves and who confidently follow their dreams, realize their beauty and worth and who take some time to take care of themselves amidst caring for everyone else in their life!
This will probably forever be one of my favorite images I’ve ever shot. Ever. This brave girl’s job is not you’re normal ordinary, run of the mill day job. This girl is fierce. She’s brave. She’s strong. She’s smart. She’s Beautiful. And so many more things! Most days she doesn’t get to get all dolled up (because I mean, who really has the time for that anyway) – but after she saw this photo, she said “That could be anyone, that could be a french super model.” It immediately stuck, because she used the word “french”, (duh) (Paris obsessed person here) but later I realized it meant more to me than that. It meant she felt as beautiful as the high paid parisian lingerie super models who are on billboards and in magazines. She saw beauty in herself that I hope she sees every single day when she looks in the mirror. To me, this photograph is a beautiful representation of a gorgeous strong woman. And if I can capture a photo that would mean so much to every woman… I hope to do it!
Whether is boudoir or a beautiful Glamour shoot, my goal is to help you see the beauty in yourself that everyone else around you, that loves you – sees in you every day! You are beautiful!
When I first started Je-T’adore I wanted to be different. I wanted my work to speak for itself, but I wanted it to have a voice that was unwavering and that quietly but boldly said something. Something that was positive. Something that is encouraging. Something that makes you think! From the beginning I’ve had a passion for photographing women. For making you feel beautiful. And most importantly I’ve had a passion for keeping things “classy”. The biggest compliment I can ever get is when girls tell me my work is “tasteful” or “classy” or “beautiful”. I realize boudoir is meant to be gorgeous photographs of you that are sexy. But in my opinion a classy woman IS sexy. And I take so much pride in delivering beautiful, sexy and classy photographs to my clients. I want these photos to be something you are proud of and excited about. Something that boosts your confidence and something that opens your eyes to see the beauty in yourself that everyone else sees in you every day. I want you to be able to see your strength and your worth as a woman. Not based upon the way you look, but your heart! Whether a bride-to-be, a stay at home mom, a working woman, a friend, a sister, a daughter – you are so important and loved and worth so much to the people around you. Your heart is needed in this world! Don’t be afraid to share it!
Happy New Year, lovelies!!
The holiday season was so busy around here, but we got some time to relax and to dream about what the new year will hold! As another holiday season is in full swing (Valentine’s Day is a big holiday for Boudoir, ya know!) we are having a blast meeting so many beautiful women and helping them create some fun gifts for their sweethearts! I’ve got big dreams for Je-T’adore in 2014 and I hope you all can be a part of it!
That’s me (Casey) (Pink jacket) & Jalie (the best hair and makeup artist ever)(bunny ears) at the bridal show yesterday! Again it was so much fun to meet so many gorgeous brides and talk to you all about boudoir for your grooms-to-be! I’ve got lots of posts coming this year! So be on the lookout!
But for now, Happy New Year from the Je-T’adore Beauty & Boudoir team!
It’s been SO cold and crazy weather here the past few weeks! But inside the studio it’s been heating up!! So many boudoir shoots and lots of beautifully wrapped surprises will be waiting under the Christmas tree for some very lucky husbands! 😉
I love it!
Hope you all are having a warm and cozy December!

There is a beauty in waiting. Sometimes it seems like every good thing comes with some sort of standard wait time. I think the waiting makes those things that much more special. More meaningful. More beautiful. As I captured this image I couldn’t help but think…she looks like a lady in waiting. For what? I’m not sure. But I know it will be something good. If you’re in the process of waiting…on something, on someone… take heart that it will be well worth the wait. And it will be beautiful.
