hear what our clients have to say
Having a pinup session done is a vulnerable experience for most women. So do not worry about anything, I am going to be here for you each and every step of the way.
The person you see in your fluorescent mirror and the woman who sits in front of my lens are so much the same, yet so different.
You see yourself as the woman who has been through some stuff, who has carried burdens, a woman who has disappointed others and maybe herself, a woman who has been told she is flawed, and just can't seem to get it together.

If I had a dollar for every time a client walked in and blurted out, "I have NO IDEA how to be sexy, I don't think I have a sexy bone in my body!"...I would be a very, VERY rich woman.

You wanna know the beauty in all that? I just so happen to be an EXPERT in coaching sexy faces, silly pinup faces and gorgeous poses meant to flatter YOUR body.
It's ALL. I. DO. every. single. day. When you hire me and invest in the experience we are offering, you are signing up for us to HOLD YOUR HAND through this experience.

For Your Pinup Experience
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
