Breaking the ice & feel comfortable in front of the camera.

No matter if you’re a newbie or returning client, those butterflies will always pop up! How do you release the tension and capture your authentic self?

First of all it’s important to get plenty of rest. The night before, be sure to get enough sleep. Turn off the electronics, turn on a fan, and keep it dark!

Breaking the Ice and Boost your Daily Confidence with this amazing Boudoir Book

Make sure everything you’re bringing is ready and prepared. Outfits, accessories, and anything else pertinent to your session. Don’t wait until the last minute to prepare whatever items you need to bring to your session.

Building a relationship with your photographer is important as you will feel less nervous during your session. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and ask for advice. I promise you and I will have lots of fun!

This might sound silly, however get in front of a mirror and practice. Move your body, breath through your mouth, try out different expressions, relax your shoulders and feel comfortable moving around!

Boudoir sessions can be a bit of a workout and your body might be sore the next day or so, practicing moving your body around will help.

Hire a professional hair and makeup artist. Especially if you know you aren’t so great at it or stress about looking your best, this could make a big difference in your appearance and the way you feel about yourself.

When you book your date with Chantal Benoit Photography, you will receive a PDF to help you get ready with a recommendation from these 2 beautiful salon that are about 1.6km from my studio. You can go there pamper yourself with hair and makeup and then come ready. Many of my clients do that and it works out for them as they enjoy the beautiful environment and their experience start there. They feel like it’s a day of pampering!
