Look forward to meeting Erica in the pink salon chair soon!
Hayley – Hayley walked into Jodi Lynn’s studio in August 2010 before the doors were officially open, before the AC was even turned on, and requested a photo editing internship. She started in October 2010 and Jodi Lynn has been lucky to have her ever since. She has seen the studio (and owner) grow and evolve into to the amazing business it is today. Now she primarily does white-balancing and exposure enhancement on all of Jodi Lynn’s shoots remotely, but still comes to visit every now and then. Hayley’s favorite part of working at the studio is the amazing employees she has gotten to know over the years. Hayley loves creating concept boudoir shoots; she is a regular client and is 100% addicted to doing photo sessions with Le Boudoir Studio. Look forward to seeing Hayley “on screen” in an upcoming social media or blog post and in the meantime thank her for making all the Le Boudoir Studio images look flawless!

You’ll find Sylvia editing photos, helping around the studio, assisting Jodi Lynn and even putting her tech support hat to use. She loves the wonderful mixture of lingerie, boudoir photography and photo editing. The thing she likes most about working at Le Boudoir Studio is that she sees how amazing the clients feel before, during and after their sessions. Sylvia has come to learn that every woman has insecurities no matter what size but they learn how beautiful they are during the shoot. She loves how confident and empowered women are when they leave the studio after their session. In Sylvia’s words: they’re radiant! Professionally, Sylvia would love the opportunity to photograph the beautiful bellies and babies that come in to the studio. She would love to follow in Jodi Lynn’s footsteps and open her own studio one day but she has a hard time thinking of doing that since she loves the girls she works with at the studio so much. Personally, she is very passionate about her sense of family. Having a large family tree with all sorts of branches it’s important for Sylvia to keep in touch with all them. Lucky for Sylvia she has family all over the place so trips to visit are always in order! On a typical weekend night, you’ll find Sylvia curled up on the couch with some wine after cooking a delicious dinner with her boyfriend. She would find it impossible to give up laughter. She is a huge comedy fan and has watched Saturday Night Live religiously since she was 8. Her boyfriend always keeps her laughing with tickle attacks! Look forward to seeing Sylvia at the studio!
