Hi, I am Shari! I am a mother of two and began my life as a mother in suburbia when I moved out of the city to grow my great photography business. I was told numerous times that I was a hidden secret because I was never on social media, and got all of my work from word of mouth referrals. I can’t even tell you how many friends of friends of friends I have photographed. About six years ago, one of my regular clients asked me if I would do a boudoir shoot for her as an anniversary gift for her husband. As she begged me to do it for her and explained to me that she would only feel comfortable doing this type of shoot with me, I felt the anxiety building. I couldn’t help but think how am I going to do this…I was completely mortified! This was totally outside of my comfort zone. I often tell my clients that I felt the same way taking the photos as they do being in them. As a child and family photographer, I suddenly found myself with a whole new vocabulary…”Spread your legs wider,” "Do you want that nipple in the picture?” “Walk down the aisle naked.” If you are thinking you could never do a boudoir photo shoot, then chances are you are my perfect client because I never thought I would spend my days photographing half naked women!

OMG!!! I had my boudoir with shari from Maven Jade Bridal & Boudoir yesterday! Let me just say this is something wayyyy out of my comfort zone but after reading about girls doing it I got a little curious. By no means am I a size 4 or have a perfect body, but I am so happy I did it. It was only Shari and me in her studio. She looked at all the outfits I brought, told me what to start, with then she showed me poses to do she talked me through the entire process. While shooting we had casual conversations about everyday life which made me feel even more comfortable. If you are on the fence about doing this DO IT!!
Omg where can I begin with Shari. She is an incredible talented person! She was so easy to work with and made me feel amazing.
Booking a photo shoot with Shari is one of the best things I did for myself. She made me feel so comfortable from the minute I walked in and talked to me during the entire shoot like we’ve been friends for years. The photos came out better then I could of even imagined and I know my fiancé will love them. I highly recommend using her!!
If I could give Shari 10 stars I would! I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin before! The pictures are flawless and the whole experience made me feel like the most beautiful/sexy/powerful woman on Earth!! Everyone should do a shoot, even if it’s not for anyone other than themselves!!!
What a great experience. I am a very shy person and from the beginning I hit it off with Shari. She is such a down to earth, easy to talk to person that you don't even realize shes shooting you. She said to me "as long as you can move and pose the way i tell you these will come out great" and they sure did. Book with maven jade. You won't regret it.
If you are not photogenic like myself and are hesitant to do a sexy shoot, whether for yourself or your significant other, Shari is definitely the one to go to! She made me feel 100% comfortable with all my crazy ideas and got such beautiful photographs that I couldn't believe some were even really me. I can't wait to see my fiance's reaction on our wedding day when I surprise him with this special book.
Shari was wonderful! So nice and down to earth all your nerves will disappear!
