When I’m naked, I’m free…of clothes! Valentine’s Day Sessions 2014

I don’t know what possessed me to propose this crazy idea to my friend and fellow photographer, Rozalind Ewashina, but sometime last November, I asked her if she wanted to team up with me for a Boudoir Party. The idea was that we would choose a weekend and offer 16 ladies hair and makeup and a 20 minute session with each of us in different settings. Both of us usually take two to three hours to shoot an individual boudoir session, so the thought of shooting eight per day and only having 20 minutes to shoot each gal was a really good challenge. When you only have 20 minutes, you have to kickstart your creative energy and just get ‘er done. We asked Amber from Sheer Radiance to join us to do Hair & Makeup and we got ‘er done.

Yeah we did!

It was rad and we were completely exhausted by the end of the second day, but super jacked by the results.

Here are a few of the shots I took of these beautiful ladies and, even though we haven’t received a review from all of them yet, I’m posting the ones we have received so you can read what the experience was like for them.

VDAY 1

VDAY 2

“I first met Jo and Roz when I was looking for a photographer for my wedding. Out of everyone local I knew I wanted one of these very talented ladies. They both have creativity out the Wazoo and take truly breathtaking shots. They have such beautiful styles and different eyes for how to make things unforgettable.

When I saw that they were teaming up to do a boudoir session, I jumped at the chance to be a part of it. Before, I was a bit nervous, but once I arrived and we were laughing and having a great time, I didn’t even think twice anymore.
‘You tell me what looks good and we ‘ll do it!’ I was totally comfortable and so happy that l’d have these photos as a memory forever.
 They both were always there when ever I had a questions or needed help with anything.
Jo saved me on my wedding day, keeping me on schedule and doing last minute dress repairs! OMG!
While I can’t say enough good things about the finished products of my wedding and the boudior photos, I just wanted to say how blown away I am each time I see myself and how each of them captured how I truly feel inside.
They are more than worth their fees and you won’t be able to get from anyone else what these ladies make happen. Their talent is unique and special and something that no one else can duplicate.
Whenever anyone mentions needing a photographer, I tell them they won’t find talent better then either of these two ladies. It just CAN’T happen!
Love you both!
Xoxox”
VDAY 3

“Hey life form reading my review about my boudoir session with Jo Leflufy and Rozlind Ewashina, I don’t know if you are aware, but you are beautiful.

You need to get off your self doubting ass and get your photo taken.

Well that’s what I told myself, and I’m super glad I did. After my session it helped me realize and reconfirm the following things that will blow your mind:

• When you feel good about your body other people will feel good too

• There is nothing bad, dirty or wrong about being naked

• If you can do this and feel amazing what else can you do that you’ve been putting off?

• I felt safe, understood and sexy

• When’s the last time I laughed this hard?

• I do what I want! Bitchez

Before the session I felt some butterflies, during the session I felt special, after the session I felt AMAZING! And well my husband always says he is f#$king amazing – I guess its true.”

Just a few of the shots I really liked from all those sessions and so many huge thanks to all of them and to Roz and Amber for making both days a shit ton of fun and laughs. I love you ladies all the way up to the moon!
We were privileged to have an amazing group of ladies trust us with their naked selves and every one of them rocked it! I can’t wait to do something similar to this when it warms up outside. I’m thinking May is a nice month for getting naked in the great outdoors. Let me know if you are interested in giving yourself this kind of kick ass gift. Call me at 250-320-4418 or email me at joleflufyphotography@gmail.com.
Have a great Tuesday ya’ll. I wish you all enough…

  1. Have I ever mentioned how stinkin’ awesome you are? Seriously! I love how you’re able to take ANY woman who’s any size, shape or colour, form, whatever and make them look stunning, no matter how much doubt they have in themselves. You rock, Jo!
