In Her Words
At 38 weeks pregnant I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My little guy was induced right away so I could start treatment asap. With a newborn at home and constant doctor appointments I had very little time to get anything done. I have always wanted to do a boudoir shoot and really wanted to document my body before I got cut into and lost all my hair.
I found Jason’s website on a random search and was immediately impressed by his work. Most of the boudoir photos I came across in my online search came off really corny to me, but as soon as I saw Jason’s work I knew this was what I wanted. I was particularly impressed by his before and after shots. They were beautiful and not the least bit corny.
Jason spoke with me over facetime and listened to what I was looking for and went out of his way to make this happen for me before treatment started. I was extremely nervous, here I am 2 weeks postpartum, no experience taking pictures, and no wardrobe (I’ve been in nothing but maternity panties for months). Jason shows up and immediately puts my husband and I at ease. He is extremely personable, professional, and talented.
The stylist Ducky was delightful and talented. She made me feel beautiful and my hair was perfect. Jason and Ducky helped me look through my closet and made it fun. They made me feel so comfortable. I was not expecting this level of photography.
Jason is an artist and you can tell he is passionate and enjoys his work. He does not settle for anything less than exactly what you want. I can’t say doing this shoot was easy but I couldn’t imagine doing this with anyone other than Jason. He made me feel strong even in an environment where you would think I would feel vulnerable.
When Jason showed me the final photos I had a really hard time finding words. I’m not very emotional but was very overwhelmed with the beauty he was able to capture. My body isn’t perfect but it is mine and it is beautiful. He was able to capture ME. I will be forever grateful for him and doing this for me.
I recommend to anyone looking into doing boudoir photos DO IT and do it NOW. Don’t wait for the perfect time because there isn’t one and you will never get to have this special gift. I also recommend having Jason capture your beauty. His talent is only shadowed by his wonderful personality. You will not regret it.
