Ottawa Boudoir Photographer – Will you Take the Plunge?

Love yourself Now!!!

Not when you lose the weight, not when you change your hairstyle, not when you wear the perfect jeans. You are a gift, you are special and you are someone to be valued and as beautiful as the next person.

Look at yourself in the mirror, embrace your curves, your laugh lines, take ownership of your body and believe you are worth it.

Boudoir photography is about capturing the essence of a women, who she really is. Boudoir can be empowering, uplifting and a great ego boost. It is designed to give you confidence and connect with your inner seductress while maintaining class and grace.

I’m hoping the below testimonial will convince you!!!

“Life begins at 40 … a myth? Maybe! In all honesty, I wasn’t the happiest person the day I started this new decade. I’m sure many can attest to having felt the same way. Although skeptical, I soon realized that the forties weren’t so bad – in fact, they are wonderful. I’m not only enjoying them to the fullest, I’ve learned to accept myself as I am, as I look. So I thought why not be a bit “risqué” and have boudoir pictures taken …. Yes, it took a while to get the courage to actually do it.

On a snowy winter’s day, my husband and I decided to go to this “adult” show that’s pretty popular in the Ottawa area and there was Chantal’s booth — both of us were in awe at the pictures on display and in her portfolio albums. I turned to my husband and said “One day I’ll do this for real” and I walked away with her business card.

The perfect opportunity for me to actually do this was my husband’s 50th birthday early this year – so I sent Chantal an email with the subject line “I’m taking the plunge”. Within minutes I received such a friendly reply that I knew I’d made a wise choice in contacting her. My “boudoir” photography adventure began!!

I met Chantal face-to-face for the first time during the pre-shoot session. Right away, we hit it off; her simple demeanor, professionalism quickly put me at ease. We spent an hour chit-chatting, getting to know each other, and browsing her boudoir portfolio to prepare for the actual photo shoot.

On the day of, I was so nervous. As I walked in, as promised, Chantal offered me a glass of wine which I most definitely accepted without any hesitation (lol)! Once I’d gathered my thoughts, taken a few deep breaths, I joined her in her studio and the shoot began. The next 2 hours were absolutely wonderful – here I was posing in all my glory and feeling fabulous.

Then came the day to choose; not an easy task I assure you. It took me almost an hour to decide. Chantal highlighted a few things without influencing my decision but making it a bit easier.  Thank goodness, otherwise I fear I would have taken a whole lot longer which speaks volumes to the quality of her work and how well she captured the moments. I look hot, sexy, amazing … MERCI, MERCI, et MERCI!!!!

Now on the home stretch, I picked up the “merchandise” and presented it to my husband. He looked at me with a big smile and said “You really did it”. Very proudly I replied – “Yes, I just had to find the right time to do it”. Did he like? – OH YES HE LIKED. They were a hit 🙂 … He never expected this at all.

THANK YOU Chantal for such a wonderful day.
