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.
