Are you tired of chasing perfection and the perfect body that the media tells us is “Normal”? Do you just want to stop letting those toxic and negative feelings about your body and how you look hold you back from experiencing your best life?
If you have these feelings, I am glad you found your way to our little sexy corner of the internet. Because, here in our Chicago & NWI boudoir studio I can help you love and accept the woman that you are and accept your body for the amazing things it can do for you and not how it looks. Because when this internal transformation happens, that is when you will start living the life you have been dreaming of. And maybe even keep the lights on in the bedroom more often! (wink,wink)
My desire to help women get the self love they desire, was not an accident. It was fueled by many years of being brutally bullied by peers because they thought I looked different than they did. 12 years ago I discovered the art of boudoir photography and it changed my life and how I viewed myself so profoundly that I made it my mission in life to help as many women as I could find the beauty within themselves.
Your mind will believe anything you tell it, feed it love, feed it encouragement, feed it TRUTH. So if you are ready to stop chasing the affirmation of others and find the beauty in your non symmetrical boobs, your battle scars and stretchmarks, I want to tell your story. The beautiful, raw, messy, imperfect story.
So that one day soon you WILL stand up proudly and say "That's me--that's the day I got brave, did something for me, lived in the moment, made peace with myself. That is the day something within me changed."
Hello Beautiful , I'm Janet!
Here's a snapshot into my world.
A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life
1 / 7
My husband Alan and I were high school sweethearts and have been married 23 years. I could not imagine navigating through this amazing life we have together with out him in it .
Have to 2 beautiful boys named Tyler (18) and Matthew(16). They are 2 best most well behaved children a mom can ask for ! Tyler is graduating from high school this year and ran cross country during his time in high school. Matthew hopes to have a career in broadcasting in the future, he is also a boy-scout .
These 2 boys are the reason I get out of bed everyday and do what I do. I want to show them that anything they put their minds to, they can achieve
Oscar and Penny, my fur babies ! A home is not a home without a dog! If I ever win the lottery, my dream is to open an animal sanctuary, that would house all the homeless and abused pets of the world !

About 3 years ago we adopted these adorable sisters. I actually just went for 1 of the kittens, but if I just took the one, then the other one would have been left alone ! So I left with both! They are not afraid of my dogs and enjoy socializing with the entire family.

I have a serious addiction to Diet Coke ! When I am stressed, the feeling of those glorious bubbles entering my body just relaxes me. Weird I know! But I love it ! I wish I loved water as much as I did my Diet Coke.

I love, love, love Mexican food! I could eat it for every meal of everyday and never tire of it. Tacos and and an ice cold Tecate to wash it down is my idea of the perfect dinner.

We love to travel ! Either by plane or packing up the family truckster and traveling accross the country. My oldest son has an obsession with the US National Parks system. He wants to see all of the national parks in his lifetime. We mainly travel within the United State, cause there is so many beautiful things to see in our beautiful country. We try and take one big family vacation every year. We also love spending time at our Cabin in the North woods. The photo you see to the left is from one of my favorite vacation spots, Grand Teton National Park.
Spending 2 weeks out west was the trip of a lifetime, it is such beautiful country.

Fun! Comfortable Atmosphere! Professional!!! Those are only a few words that can describe my experience!!! I would and will do it all over again ...and again!!! Janet is AMAZING!! My session was a wedding gift for my husband and my husband loved the photos!!! I never thought i could look like that!! but Janet made it all happen!!! Thank you Janet!!
I've had the opportunity to work with Janet on three different photo shoots over the years, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat! She is professional, respectful, witty, and a genius behind the camera. The first time I worked with her I was incredibly shy and reserved, and by the end of that session I couldn't remember what I was so nervous about. And, the photos...I couldn't believe it was me! She helped bring out a level of sex appeal I never imagined I had. The other two sessions were fun, and easy...and one thing I love is she listens to make your own vision a reality. And, if you go in without a plan, she is able to create a masterpiece under her direction. I highly recommend her talents to everyone. You will NOT be disappointed!

I booked a session partly for my husband, but mostly for me. I can't recommend Janet enough - she's immensely talented and did a great job making me feel at ease for my session. The results are absolutely gorgeous.
I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Janet. She was professional from start to finish. I felt informed and listened to throughout the entire process and she goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. Lindsey did an incredible job making me look my very best. She gave me gorgeous curls and perfect makeup that accentuated my features. While shooting with Janet I felt comfortable and beautiful. She captured me in poses that were flattering and it was so much fun shooting with her. I laughed and danced and felt totally at ease the entire time. The hardest part was narrowing down the photos during my reveal. There were so many great ones that I had trouble deciding. Janet has great packages and payment plans so truly anyone can make this work for their budget. I can’t recommend the experience enough and I’m already saving so that I can do a pinup session.

Janet took excellent photos for me. I was very hesitant about this at first. Her glam lady Lindsay made me look gorgeous. I loved my make up and eye lashes. I had total say over what I had done as fast as hair and makeup. I had a morning boudoir shoot so I had great hair and make up all day. I was able to give as much or as little input as I wanted into my shoot. I had only a small list of some specific things I wanted and Janet filled in the rest. I felt very comfortable in her studio after taking with her and figuring out the process. It was easy and fun. It was a great confidence boost that wad desperately needed. I didn't see myself the same way afterward and I mean that in a positive way. I got so much more from this experience. She does pinup as well, which would be super cute to do in the future. I plan on trying pin up out too. I purchased a book for an anniversary gift for my husband, money well spent. It was time I invested a little in myself. I would definitely go with her again. Fantastic photography right here.

At first I was so nervous to be in front of her like that but when it actually happened I was so comfortable. She always made sure I was ok and felt comfortable. She also works with you, does payment plans and she’s very understanding. My hair, my make up and all was so perfect that day! I had no confidence when I went there until I was in the photo shoot and I definitely left with a lot of confidence. I’m absolutely in love with all my pictures and the work she did for me! I definitely would go back and refer her to everyone! She truly loves what she does and is so compassionate about it, she’s definitely the best!

I love my session with Janet!! She calmed my nerves from the start, and was very professional. I love my pictures and can't wait to do it again!!

Janet is the absolute best! I started out with a Pin Up shoot and she made me feel so comfortable, relaxed, confident, beautiful, ect, ect, that the moment I saw her post a model call for a boudoir shoot, I jumped on it! And I definitely do not regret it one bit. She makes it easy to pay for your pictures and any products you may want to add it's hard to say no! I'll definitely be returning in the future, and recommend her any time someone brings up getting pictures done!

She was great! She made me feel so comfortable and pretty and the photos turned out amazing. I have never done this before and am a very shy person. From the beginning she made me feel comfortable and walked me through the whole shoot. It was a great experience that i think every women should do at least once and should do with Janet Lynn Boudoir!!!
Janet has an amazing talent, is incredible patient, and fantastic at making you feel comfortable. I have done 3 sets of photos with Janet and have loved each and every experience
