The Women Behind the Lens: Meet Jodi Lynn and Traci

Meet Jodi Lynn and Traci, the women behind the lens and co-owners of Le Boudoir Studio. Jodi Lynn launched LBS in 2010, and Traci recently joined the team in 2016. As entrepreneurs, photographers, mothers, and part-time therapists, these #GirlBosses are changing the name of the game in the industry, with the mission to inspire self-love while empowering and inspiring confidence through boudoir and photography.

At age 24, Jodi Lynn attended her first boudoir photography workshop, and was inspired by the experience it created for women. A few months later, she launched Le Boudoir Studio, one of the first photography studios of its kind in Arizona.

“I was inspired by boudoir photography when I saw the great experience it created for women,” Jodi said. “As women, we often feel insecure about how we look. We are so hard on ourselves… Boudoir photography is all about breaking down that negativity and celebrating true beauty – making each women look and feel beautiful in her own way. It’s about empowerment and lifting each other up.”

While other boudoir studios focus on sex appeal and a “do it for your man” attitude, Le Boudoir Studio takes a different approach, focusing on a greater “why.” Jodi and Traci strive to make women of all ages and sizes feel empowered, not for a man, or someone else – but for themselves.

“As mothers ourselves, we never want our daughters to question why they don’t look this way or that way – we want them to feel beautiful as they are,” Traci said. “And while we cannot hide them from the unrealistic expectations of society, we can help boost them up with confidence and strength. That’s the same approach we take at our studio.”

Jodi and Traci focus getting to know each of their clients personally. From the time their clients book until they receive their prints, Jodi and Traci take the extra step to help promote self-love and true worth. More than a photo shoot, the Le Boudoir Studio experience is a one-of-a-kind transformation that lasts longer than just the shoot and extends beyond the photos.

Learning how to practice self-love

When you look in the mirror…what do you see? What do you focus on? Do you see the freckles you cover up with your make-up? Do you see the circles under your eyes? Do you see a double chin? Perhaps some blemishes? Instead, how about noticing your beautiful eyes that allow you to see this magnificent world we live in? What about that awesome smile that makes the people around you happy? Do you see the amazing qualities that make you; YOU? How about instead of focusing on the “flaws” you take the challenge to focus on all of the things that you do like about yourself versus tearing yourself apart? The more good things you focus on the more your self-love will grow.

Learning how to love yourself

Le Boudoir Studio believes that all women are beautiful and should embrace their exclusive beauty. Women can be their own worst critics, but as a woman it’s especially important to practice self-love. In our opinion a woman who accepts and loves herself just as she is; is a force to be reckoned with. Think about it…if you accept and love yourself (and all your self-proclaimed flaws) then what anyone else says or thinks really doesn’t matter; all that matters is what you think about yourself.  Does accepting yourself mean that you will be perfect and not make any mistakes? Fat chance! The beautiful thing about your unique journey is that you will make mistakes; lots of them! I’m here to tell you that those mistakes will be some of your greatest lessons, so go ahead make lots! 😛

In order to empower yourself as a women there are some key things you can do:

  • Stop comparing yourself to others! Each and every one of us is unique.
  • Stop wishing you could be something you’re not. Some women aren’t meant to have straight hair or be a size zero, and thank goodness for that cause what a boring world it would be if we were all the same.
  • Surround yourself with like-minded and positive people who are aligned with your life plan and goals.
  • Start a gratitude journal. Practice focusing on all of the wonderful things in your life and you will keep attracting more.
  • Learn to forgive yourself easily.
  • Love yourself more than anyone else does and no one will be able to knock you down.
