Every year, month, week, and day is worthy of capturing memories but during each month this year we're going to focus on symbolic sessions as it relates to JE values, The Greater Globe purpose, and intentional efforts to reach our JE family even more. The monthly calendar will be updated as needed and readily available by way of JakierasEye.com. For immediate notifications on exclusives and promotions please subscribe to our newsletter (don't worry it's only monthly, plus exclusives)!
You can expect Pop-Ups to be announced for each of the events listed above. Each will come with a promotion and/or offering of some sort. I hope you're as excited as I am because I've got some great plans in store for us this year!

For those that aren't sure what boudoir is, what it means, or assumes it's just flat out raunchy or x-rated then let me bring you up to speed! But first, here's a gentle peek to get your visuals flowing.
Boudoir Jakiera is made to be a comfortable and liberating session. For starters, you'll be provided with patience, guidance, and professionalism at all times. Here's what you can expect in addition to the standards:
Levels to this...
There's a fancy name for "raunchy and x-rated" pictures, being Boudoir, because it's not always either or. But it can be! And there's no judgement coming from me unless you don't get raunchy or x-rated at some point in your life (I kid).
However, the choice is totally up to you and your mood at the time. The keyword is choice because you have plenty. Boudoir can go from one extreme to the other and people, props or location can be added for additional spice as well.
This year is about to be SO monumental that words can't fathom what I have in mind. It's not all about resolutions but those matter too; meal prep, stay away from donuts, pray more, feed my mind as much as I feed my body if not more, never stop learning, all that good stuff! But the plot thickens, there's so much more in store for you, me, US! What plans do you have for 2019?
Last day of the Kwanzaa celebration and the 7th principle has never meant so much to me as it does today. IMANI, Faith, the importance of believing in ourselves and others! It's not my intent to divulge it all in this single blog but for starters, this will be the year for personal development, business growth, love and prosperity. We'll take this journey together, step by step, leave comments on what you've got going on, recommendations, suggestions and let's keep the conversation going. What does personal growth mean to you? What are you career/business/ side hustle goals?
You are reading what was formerly called our BLOG but it has been retitled, Jakiera's Journal, for those that aren't aware, since I've decided to combine both forms of therapy that I use, journaling and photography. No better place than in my own personal space, here! Facebook used to get pieces of me, Instagram used to get visual pieces of me, and Twitter collected over 10k pieces of my thoughts but this year I'm going to share it with the people who care most, JE loyal viewers and supporters. Not to say our Instagram and Facebook won't return again but for now they are closed down until further notice, including my personal profiles. However, Tumblr, Pinterest, SnapChat and Twitter still remain. Feedback is welcome here as well!
New Blog Topics
This blog is about to be utilized like never before so I hope you all are ready to receive but even more, participate in the conversations. Topics will cover all things financial wealth, mental and physical health, development, and Love. Love will always be at the forefront of any and everything that we deliver and take part in. You may think that the areas listed aren't directly tied to the photography that I specialize in (Activism, Brand, Nature) but you'll soon find that it's actually not true and that they actually do! What's on your mind?
If I had one gift, one purpose, then I'd like to believe that one was to contribute to society providing unity and love through the art of photography.
