Remember a time in your life? Gain confidence and self-esteem?
Boudoir photography used to be spoken in secrecy. It used to be a style of photography that was not considered appropriate due to a risqué nature. But today, women are more open and boudoir photography has been rising in popularity. It is considered to be fun, hot and no longer something to hide!
A bit nervous or shy. No worries. Let me tell you about Leslie.
This sweet little women came to my studio for a consultation. I could tell she was shy and nervous. Making her feel comfortable and relaxed was very important so I could give her the most out of her session.
We talked about everything and anything. The day of the session we spent 2 hours together and we had a blast. It was my pleasure to pamper her. Leslie showed she can be sexy!
Between the session and the showing of her proofs, Leslie would send me e-mails telling me she really enjoyed her experience so I asked her if she could put down in writing what it was like for her to have had a boudoir session done.
Here is what she had to say.
“I went to Chantal Benoit Photographer in order to do Boudoir pictures for my husband for Xmas.
I had met with a few different photographers but knew the minute I met with Chantal that she would be the photographer I would use as she made me feel very comfortable – while at the same time explaining everything around cost, her expectations, what I can expect on the day of the shoot etc. This was very much appreciated because it was one less thing to worry about.
As many women probably are, I was nervous and felt very vulnerable but Chantal immediately made me feel very relaxed and at ease. Chantal went through my outfits and was able to tell me what she would photograph first, what shoes would work with what outfit, etc. I had a beautiful room to change in along with candlelight for a relaxed mood and a lovely satin robe to cover myself between outfits.
From the first picture Chantal took to the very last I was completely calm and having more fun then I thought I would! We talked and laughed during the whole process and had a lot of fun with the pictures.
Chantal was so encouraging that I had this new found confidence and felt very sexy!
The pictures surpassed my wildest expectations! I kept looking at them thinking “Is this really me??!!!” Chantal did such a beautiful job! My one and only disappointment with the whole process was how my husband and I could possibly choose between all these incredible pictures!!!
Thank you Chantal for the most freeing, liberating and FUN experience!! I have told everybody I know about your work and will continue to! You are the best and now my friend and I thank you for this wonderful experience! – Leslie Joy”
