As Seen On

“Loving yourself is a journey, not a destination.”

– Tess Holliday

Hi, I’m Jennifer

I’m the owner and principal photographer behind Supernova Boudoir, one of the top boudoir studios in the United States with clients from all over the country–and world! The new St. Augustine studio is located right off I-95 near World Golf Village. Previously, we were in the DC suburbs of Northern Virginia’s wine country!

I believe in helping other women realize they are not only beautiful, but fearless and brave. As a domestic violence survivor myself, I want to help women raise their voices, especially those who have suffered the ravages of domestic abuse, divorce, or simply need to find themselves again.

My clients are women just like you and me and have ranged from brides to mothers of special-needs littles to women who have exited bad relationships and want to regain the lost pieces of themselves. My heart belongs to a world where women don’t feel less-than because they’ve compared themselves to someone in a beauty magazine or that model in the yearly Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It belongs to the women who want to celebrate where they are in this moment of their life journey.

Supernova Boudoir’s mission is to empower all women and help them feel fearless and know they are beautiful right now. 

My commitment to my clients ensures that you not only leave with beautiful photographs, but more importantly, that you had an epic time with me capturing the essence of who you are at your core.

I'm pretty self-conscious about my every other woman.
[But] I was like, Oh my god, that's me?!
It was very empowering.

Why Choose Supernova Boudoir in Jacksonville, Florida?

You have a lot of choices for boudoir photography on the First Coast and we totally recognize that!  When you hire Supernova Boudoir, you are not only supporting a small business, but you know who is photographing you in your most intimate and vulnerable moments.  We don’t sub out photographers.  My studio is not a chain and you won’t find us on Groupon. Instead of meeting your unknown photographer in a hotel room or Airbnb rented by the day, you will come to our luxurious, custom-built photography studio in Saint Augustine, complete with a private changing room, kitchenette, beautifully decorated sets, and an enormous closet full of garments ranging from XS – 5XL. 

You will also be hiring an expert in posing, styling, and telling bad Dad-jokes!  I call that a win!

The Process

Step 1: Initial Consultation

We’ll chat on the phone about what you are looking for, talk about your “why”, and then if you like what you hear, we will book your date!

Step 2: Planning Session

Schedule your optional phone planning session. This is a 30-minute meeting we can have to talk about wardrobe, ideas, and collaborate on your vision. I make this optional because most clients fully trust us to give them a kick-ass session no matter what!  

Step 3: Get Glam

When you come in for your session, our hair and makeup artist is going to bring you up to our studio, put you in a robe with a tasty bev in your hand, and get started on your makeover!

Step 4: The Shoot

Session time!  We will shoot 3-4 outfits, or “looks”.  Most clients opt for 2-3 different lingerie looks and then add on an extra set using our Pre-Purchase Program Perks, but that is up to you!  I will guide you through all the poses from eyelash to pointed toe!

Actual shoot time lasts about two hours.

Step 5: The Reveal

The best part of the day! We take a quick, 20-minute break after your session so we can upload your photos to the computer. This is when you get to see your final images for the first time and get to purchase your favorites to take home in luxury, heirloom-quality products hand-curated by the best artisans in the world.

Step 6: Revel In Your Confidence

Enjoy your photos and custom artwork! Take them out whenever you need a pick-me-up or want to remind yourself what a badass you are! 

Our group has grown to over 1,700 supportive and uplifting women who want to cheer each other on. We are proud to brag that great friendships have been forged from our group!

It’s also the perfect place to learn about Jennifer, her team, and the studio. We often post behind the scenes photos and videos, before and after hair and makeup, and images from client shoots (with permission, of course!).

Client Love Notes

If you can’t tell, we really love what we do! The best part is hearing how we’ve changed lives from our beautiful clients!  Best. Thing. Ever.

From girl-next-door to the Runway

Everyone who enters our Jacksonville boudoir studio receives complimentary hair and makeup from the best artists in the area. They will ask you what you like and dislike about makeup, what your vision is, and talk to you about color choices. At the end of the hair and makeup portion of your day, we’ll ask you how you like your makeup and if there are any changes you want made. 

So all you have to do is show up! 

“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if you only dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”

It’s Time To Invest In Yourself

You are worthy of this experience.

I am a firm believer that we cannot pour from empty cups and that what we put out into the world, we receive back tenfold. And that’s why I believe in self care, whether it’s in the form of getting your hair done or taking a real vacation just for you. In this case, I’m a boudoir photographer, so I provide self care in the form of boudoir and beauty art for my clients.  When I am happy and fulfilled, this radiates to the people around me, my friends, family, and loved ones.  As it will for you.

Booking a boudoir session is a commitment to yourself, a push to remember that you are worthy of feeling beautiful in this moment, despite nothing. It’s a commitment to your future self that you promise to create tangible memories of this moment in time upon which you will reflect in 20 or 30 years. 

You, my friend, are worthy of feeling absolutely gorgeous.  

I’m ready to take part in your journey. All you have to do is show up, I’ll take care of the rest.

We do not require model releases. We believe you have ownership over your body and your privacy, and therefore we only share images for which we have received explicit permission.

Yes, always! We work with with the best hair and makeup artists in the area and vet them extremely carefully.  You will come in knowing you are in good hands!

No way! The only person in the room that needs to know how to pose is ME! But I will be guiding you every step of the way through all the crazy poses you see on my website, and by the end, you are going to know all about the Booty Pop, Boobs to the Sky, and more.
