“I can't even put into words how this experience made me feel. I felt empowered and beautiful. I have a pep in my step that has been missing for awhile and I am finally start to see what my husband is seeing, I just needed a little help from three amazing women! You three rock. Thank you!”
“They are the best! Emily makes you look and feel absolutely amazing and Jes makes you so comfortable and is so awesome at explaining and showing you how to pose for the pictures. The experience as a whole was incredible. I would recommend Mad Chicken to anyone and everyone! "
"Be prepared to cry happy tears....it feels that good! And Jes and Emily give the best most genuine hugs on the planet!"
"These girls were the greatest! I was so nervous going into my session but they make it so easy to become comfortable. They are so encouraging throughout the whole session and Emily does such a wonderful job with hair and makeup. I cannot wait to book my next session!"
"Best boudoir photographer in the entire world, and I've used different ones in the past. Not only is Jes super talented at what she does, she makes you feel super comfortable, and like a movie star! And her studio has the best closet, so you don't have to worry about what you'll wear! Highly recommend!"
"The ladies in this studio are moving mountains in how women see themselves. I drove up from Forest Lake for my photo session and was overwhelmed by how genuine and professional they are. I will be going back again for another session. Keep doing what you are doing."
"Look no further for the best boudoir experience in the area. Jes and Emily are FANTASTIC to work with. The studio is gorgeous, but the photos Jes captures are ever better. My session with Jes has changed the way I view myself. It was a profound experience and I highly recommend Mad Chicken Studio for any and all of your boudoir dreams to come true. They make you feel right at home and comfortable being sexy and sultry!"
"Amazing ladies to work with & the experience was AWESOME!!! So much more than I ever imagined. I will definitely be doing it again!!"
"Jes and Emily were fun and easy to work with. On top of that, I left their studio feeling beautiful, confident and empowered. The images are beyond what I had expected and I will forever cherish the attention to detail they put into their work. These amazing ladies went above and beyond the call of duty more than once! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality work in a friendly and upbeat atmosphere."
"Right away I felt completely comfortable with Jes... I think it probably helps that I am so obsessed with the Facebook group, so I watch the lives almost everyday. I was super excited about all of the pieces they picked for me, and knew they would have great ideas any time I asked for advice. It was so fun to catch up with Emily as she did my hair and makeup, and I was shocked when I saw the final result in the mirror. The shoot was an absolute blast. Beyond feeling amazingly beautiful throughout the entire thing, we just had a ton of fun together.
I felt like I had been wasting so much time picking out and focusing on my flaws for all of these years, when I could have been spending time focusing on all of my... assets. ;)
I just want to say thanks to Jes and Emily, and the entire community of women in this group. I love that we are all uplifting each other and the community together. If the whole world could be more like you guys, it would be a pretty amazing place to live. Put your fate in Jes and Emily's hands and you will look and feel amazing. This is an investment in themselves that every woman should make! These ladies are both so very talented at what they do!"
"This place, these women! What a great experience. I would HIGHLY recommend Mad Chicken Studio. Jes and Emily ROCK. If I could give them more stars I would."
"I was half naked and these ladies made me feel completely comfortable, made me forget what I had on my body (or I should say, what I didn’t have on my body lol) and about all my little insecurities. They made it such fun, a positive, uplifting experience!"
"After my session I truly felt like I was glowing. I felt this weird feeling of pride and kind of a giddy adrenaline rush from doing something so out of the box from my norm. I think I grinned at every car I passed on the way home! The date of my session was probably tied with my wedding for the date I felt most beautiful."
"I was so nervous and excited, I got there 15 minutes early. Emily greeted me and showed me the outfits they pulled for me to try on. I tried on nearly everything! Got some input from Emily and eventually picked outfits from their closet, I didn't even use anything I had brought. They had upbeat music playing and the studio was nice and warm. It felt so cozy and intimate, like I was hanging out at home with my friends.
Once I had my outfits Emily started on my hair an makeup, which I was super excited about! I don't wear much makeup and have never tried fake lashes so I really wanted to see how it all looked together. All I can say is WOW. She has a talent and I already felt so amazing I was almost giddy.
After all that Jes came out with her camera and we started the shoot. She walked me through all the poses and demonstrated them first so I knew what to do. She is so good at giving direction and explaining what she needs you to do. Sometimes I felt silly, but I knew she had a reason for all of it. Jes and Emily gave so many compliments through the whole thing and I just soaked them up. It went by so fast and when it was time to leave I couldn't stop smiling.
I hadn't felt that good about myself in a long time. I felt beautiful, empowered, and unstoppable. I called my husband once I left and told him, "Did you know your wife is effing hot?!" (Which he replied to by saying "Duh.") It was a day to celebrate myself, and I felt amazing.
When I came in for my viewing session they had a slideshow prepared for me on the TV, with music and everything! After the first few photos my nerves melted away and I couldn't stop smiling. I may have uttered a few "damn"s in there too. I felt beautiful and sexy.
Do it! You are worth it. Everyone deserves to feel like a rock star, including you. I wish I hadn't waited so long. It's exhausting to be so negative towards yourself. I'm ready to love myself and celebrate who I am right now, not who I was or want to be."
"My session was amazing!! It was so nice having a narrowed down rack of outfits picked out for me to try on! After selecting way too many, Jes and Emily helped me narrow them down and then Jes styled them while I hopped in to the chair for Emily to work her magic!
When I was in my first outfit, there was a “great pocket of light” so Jes apologized for tossing me right in without “warming me up,” but some of the pictures she got from that moment are incredible, so worth it! I did my best to contort my body in to all of the poses Jes was showing me! I felt like a sexy badass and I’m so glad I picked out the 4 outfits I did! When Jes kept showing me pictures on her camera, I was so excited to see them all at my viewing!
It was a great day, and I got many compliments on my hair and makeup for the rest of the day! I’m also glad I did the live stream...I knew I wouldn’t be any more or less awkward with doing it, but hopefully women choosing to do so will empower other women!"
"I felt amazing! I had such a wonderful time at my session and I defiantly would love to do another in the future. I felt like a model and a million bucks! These ladies make you feel so beautiful and perfect in every way no matter what.
After my (secret) session, since I was all dolled up and my endorphins were high I called my fiancé and said I wanted to go out on a date that night. So we went out to dinner and he couldn't stop staring at me :) "
"OMG (oh my gato) - oh my cat in Spanish! I was amazed on how everything came together. From hair and make up to the outfits I was blown away on the whole experience.
I have never felt better about myself. I didn't know it at the time but I 100% needed that. All I can say is thank you for everything. It's not about the make up or amazing outfits but about your experience and way mine nothing short of perfection.
I felt like I got my confidence back. Each person has different life experience and sometimes a girl just needs to love her body! I can't get over this experience and hope to do it again,”
"Emily and Jes are AMAZING and really have the entire experience perfected to make you feel like you are so special and beautiful. Emily had the best outfits picked out for me to try on, it was so fun working with her and Jes to decide which ones I was actually going to wear. Emily is a genius with hair and makeup. And Jes makes you so comfortable being half (well, probably more than half) naked in front of the camera."
"I felt amazing. They see positive things about you that you don't recognize anymore and I left there feeling like I might have a chance on America's Next Top Model. I felt prettier the rest of the day even though I only went out to dinner with a friend and came home to scrub toilets, do laundry, clean up cat vomit, and listened to toddlers scream about bedtime. I looked fabulous doing it!
I'd like to add that it's such a special job these women are doing for us and I know women must come in every day totally scared of what they are in for and they make everyone feel like a super model. To do that and be uplifting on the Facebook groups, and help out in the community, they are really changing the world one woman at a time. It's a pretty amazing thing when you look at the enormity of it and I'm happy to be a small sliver of that."
"I THANK Jes and Emily... not for putting makeup on me or letting me know what I was falling out of top but for capturing a part of me that I don't see that often. For me building up and letting ME overflow out of a picture that I will always have. They were positive, welcoming, supportive but also real and they weren't just feeding me lines. Jes and Emily really wanted to give me a great experience and produce an end product that I would be proud of."
"Just go for it. These babes make you feel so comfortable and so good. But you also have to be mentally ready to let yourself go for it, to be free and uninhibited. You're a babe, show us what you got!"
