Jodie Shanks Brisbane Boudoir Photographer

Brisbane Boudoir Photographer,

Jodie Shanks welcomes you to Studio Sensuelle.

Recently awarded Brisbane’s Best Boudoir Photography Studio!

Hey There Beautiful,

Don’t believe it when your S.O (Significant Other) says they love your Booty, & you wonder why they grab it all the time? Well, I’m here to say, it will be the most favorite part of your body when I’m finished with you lol. Hard to believe, right?

Am I right in saying the number one reason for women wanting a Boudoir Shoot is to feel more confident in their skin & to learn to accept themselves for who they are & the body they have? As women, we are continually comparing ourselves. We need to unlearn that exceptionally unhelpful habit. Everybody is different & everybody is unique & special in their way.

I want to show you “‘Your’ Beautiful, sexy & Empowered side!” & I know I am the Brisbane Boudoir Photographer to help you with this.

Seeing yourself as your loved ones see you, will finally make you realize how valuable, important, and truly beautiful you are. You will love yourself & value yourself more through having a Boudoir Experience with Studio Sensuelle. I pride myself on being your go-to Specialist Brisbane Boudoir Photographer.

This experience is not like any other photoshoot you have ever done before &  after taking this journey, I  hope you understand why I need to talk to you and meet you before your shoot and why it is important to join the Private Facebook Community. Most importantly after seeing the most beautiful photos of yourself… I truly hope you can see how amazing you are, & believe in yourself.

My name is Jodie & I am your specialist in Boudoir Photography and Makeup Artistry. My Brisbane Boudoir Studio is located in Springfield Lakes about 30 min from the Brisbane CBD. The studio has a few sets, one is designed around the natural light that flows into the room & is more akin to a Luxury Bedroom, than a Photography Studio. The other is set up like a Speak Easy Whisky Bar come “Spicy” Sex Room. Having my studio at home also means we have access to the shower, kitchen, loungeroom & other areas. I am also across the road from a park and not far from secluded bushy areas, so we have so many options for all creative ideas you might have.

Your Brisbane Boudoir Photographer- Jodie

Just a few things about me- I love a glass of Champagne or two, I’m a dog person, and I love my family. I have been a photographer from an early age, & was obsessed with BW photography in High School. I started shooting professionally in 2005  around about the time when digital cameras finally arrived. I received my first digital camera as a gift & I was away. I took some photos of  Agaves and rocks and framed them in my bathroom. I was told they were beautiful and that I should start selling them. So I did! Jodie Lea Creations was born.

Brisbane Boudoir Photographer starts as a photographer, buyer & designer of homewares for her own unique party plan business.

Jodie-lea Creations traded successfully from 2005-2008 before internet shopping took off in Australia. I developed a Homewares Party Plan business where I sold my own Wall art & homewares for homes including unique handcrafted tea light holders. I printed, produced, painted & designed everything myself. After having this business for 3 years, loading & unloading the car so many times, I felt like I needed a change.

I started working full-time at a Prolab when the girls were around middle school age. I then started shooting weddings for well-known Brisbane Wedding photographers on the weekends. I loved shooting weddings as it suited my “fly by the seat of my pants” personality. I met some of the most wonderful people while part of the Photography & pro-lab community and they are all still beautiful friends now. Starting to feel like I needed more & wanting so much to start photographing full-time, I decided to start to take some lighting & photography workshops to increase my skills.

It was at a lighting workshop that had nothing to do with Boudoir Photography, where I had my Lightbulb moment & it hit me as to what I was supposed to do with my life. THAT’S IT! I was going to be a Boudoir Photographer! I went home & said, “I know what I want to do!!” So I changed our house around & made our lounge into the studio. I was on my way. That was 2015!

I spent the first year building & writing my website myself, perfecting the experience, finding the perfect products & practicing my posing. I have had the studio for over 9 years now, & have been a photographer for 18 years. These last 9 years have been some of my most rewarding working years & some of the hardest. “If it was easy everyone would be doing it.. right?”

A Supportive Family

I want to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to my amazing daughters, I couldn’t have done what I have done or kept going without the support and encouragement of my beautiful girls. I have 2 wonderful, amazing, smart young ladies in their twenties. My girls are super supportive and have attended events where they have taken on the roles of mini-me lol. Their continued support of my crazy ideas, dreams, and passion keeps me motivated & my clients let me know what I am doing is my calling. I am so grateful for them both.

More about me-

Are you into Star Signs? I’m a Leo the Lion & anyone who knows me, knows I am fiercely loyal, passionate, positive, happy, a bit of a romantic, & they may say I’m pretty funny. lol Well, I try! I was married for 27 years but am now separated & living a very different life now. They say you grow through what you go through. I still believe that the Universe is looking out for me & that everything happens exactly when it is meant to. It can be fucking hard at times but I keep going & tomorrow is a new day.

My passion is to help all women realize how amazing, beautiful, and valued they are even if they don’t feel it at the moment. Inspiring women to feel empowered and proud of who they are by showing them how beautiful they are from the inside out with the most gorgeous photos they have ever seen of themselves is what I live for, I am empowered by empowered women.

Your Brisbane Boudoir Photographer can transform your mindset after seeing your photos.

A good portrait will show vulnerability, that you believe in yourself, look comfortable & show confidence, so this is what I strive for always.

Seeing the transformation of my beautiful ladies through this experience makes my heart sing. From seeing themselves in the mirror after having their hair and makeup done, to when they get a sneak peek from the back of my camera throughout the shoot. 🙂 That confidence boost is phenomenal & immediate!

Have you watched the behind-the-scenes video? I hope you loved it, if it has inspired you to have your very own experience with one of the best Brisbane Boudoir Photographers, please use the message bubble or the contact form below for more information.

Remember there is only one you! Accept and love yourself for what you believe in – your quirks, your curves or not so many curves, and the decisions you have made along the way because they have made you who you are today Babe. Another mantra is to flip your thoughts if shit is happening & to remember-

 Things happened FOR you not TO you.

Have a wonderful day. I can’t wait to hear your story & to find out why you would love a Boudoir Shoot.

Stay Fabulous.
