Portrait

Me In My Place ® - beautiful women at home

Real women in their own place.  Not too crazy and just a pinch of naughty…

By creating evocative and alluring portraits of women with body types that have traditionally been left out of mainstream media, Me In My Place is redefining a genre that has been over-run with unrealistic expectations of what it means to be beautiful.  With full acceptance of the “male gaze”, the images promote not just acceptance, but also an aspirational message about everyday appeal.  The project is a celebration and is meant to be fun and open to all.

In an effort to monetize the project to keep it going, we created a simple mobile web app, more commonly called THE MIMP APP (https://mimp.findrow.com).  This gave fans of the project a simple and inexpensive way to show support.  In exchange, they receive more images, exclusive images that are not on the tumblr, and the ability to quickly view and ‘like’ their favorite content.

The MIMP APP was such a success, we decided there must be other content providers like us who would like to give their fans something extra, so we created FINDROW.  With flexibility that Instagram and Facebook won’t allow, we give our content providers the freedom to express themselves as they see fit… even if that is not always safe for work ;-)  Again, they control their own content and are leading the conversation about how they feel beautiful in the world.  For a complete list of all the Findrow apps, click here.

Oh hey night owls…Remember this cutie? Blast from the past with this set as part of a collaboration, Amanda Jas (@hokaytokay) shoots Jillian for Me In My Place

You can also see more Jillian HERE, but your best bet is to see all her sets, and exclusive never before posted photos, on the app HERE.

Well, sometimes short and sweet is the right way to go…  This is the last picture from this collaboration for the website.  Those of you with a MIMP APP subscription can see the 150+ images from Amanda’s shoot with Jillian…  And, one last sweet quote from the woman herself: 
“I think it’s easy to become apologetic in this industry because it’s so overwhelming, but I’m glad I’m finally growing out of that. I love acting, I love film, and I love theatre, and I’m tired of apologizing for it. It’s an art form, and if you take yourself seriously in it- others will, too. And the more I surround myself with people that love whatever they do, whether it be photography, comedy, fashion, etc, I see that the ones that are successful are the ones that educate themselves about their craft and really dive into it. It’s like Lady Gaga said (I know I know, bear with me,) about how your career will never wake up in the morning and leave you. Find what you love to do and really dive into it, and cool things will happen. Don’t underestimate yourself. Life’s too short.”  -Jillian

"I’m a Florida baby, so I much prefer the warmth to the cold weather. I thrive in flip flops and tank tops, and tend to stay in a lot more when the weather turns to stay under the sheets and cuddle up in sweaters. I also drink probably one hot chocolate a day in the winter to stay in a good mood. It’s the little things." -Jillian

“My favorite dessert is a perfect Cannoli. I have the sweetest of sweet-tooths, the perfect Cannoli can really hit the spot. I’ve spent the past month on the hunt for the limited Ben and Jerry Cannoli flavor.” -Jillian

"I love feeling sexy. And I love it for myself. Some nights I’ll put on an outfit I know I look good in, put on my red lipstick, and take myself out on a date, even if it’s something simple like a movie or a comedy show. And I go out and don’t really want to talk to others- I just want to take in this city and treat myself to something nice. It’s that feeling of total confidence that really radiates out of you when you find it. I don’t enjoy anyone’s company more than my own, and I think that’s important at this stage in life." -Jillian

"I’m at a point in my life right now where I’m not really looking for anything relationship-wise. This is time for me to figure out me, you know? I’m so young and have so much to see and do and learn. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have had great relationships in the past that have taught me so much about who I am and the kind of people I want to be around, and I’m grateful for all of them. Every single ex-boyfriend I’ve had has been such an important stepping stone in my life, and I thank them for all they’ve done for me. They’ve made me who I am today, and I finally love who I am today entirely. It’s an amazing, freeing feeling.” -Jillian

"I love my kickboxing classes, sports circuit classes, and sometimes a long run. I never used to be such a gym junkie, but now I find it to be so relaxing. It’s my me-time. There’s never been a time I’ve left the gym regretting making the extra effort to get there." -Jillian

"I’m such a foodie. I love everything about food, and I think knowing what we eat is so important. It’s amazing how the food industry has tried to warp what we understand about nutrition through big business politics. It’s almost impossible to read and interpret a nutrition label nowadays because of lobbyists making sure they can keep their high sugar and sodium content. I come from Florida, where I can get teased about being a health nut, but I don’t understand the argument against wanting to eat clean. I still have my chocolate cake when I want it, I just don’t have it every night and couple it with an active gym routine that I look forward to. Everything in moderation."  -Jillian

"I do love to read- I’m in a book club with my closest friends. We just finished Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (which was amazing, I highly reccomend it.) I think it’s important to stay well rounded and stimulated. I graduated about a year and 1/2 ago, so it’s easy to get lazy and sink into playing internet games or things. Although I won’t lie, I do love a good round of words with friends or scramble with friends…"  -Jillian

"I love watching great television and seeing great films, because I like to think of it as job-research. Homeland, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos are some of my favorites. I would also love to be a zombie on The Walking Dead… how much fun would that be?!" -Jillian
