So, you want to do a boudoir session but something is holding you back…

You are definitely not alone! Many of my clients say, “I was waiting to lose weight, but then I just decided to do it!” or “I realized that I was never going to be perfect anyway, so I just decided to go for it.”

How To Prepare For Your Boudoir Session.

We all have our insecurities and worries. The great news is that boudoir isn’t for perfect people, it’s for women like you and I who see adventure instead of obstacles.

Here are 5 things not to worry about when considering a boudoir session:

1) Don’t worry about your cellulite:

Cellulite is normal. Not all of us have it (if you don’t, you are very lucky!!), however many of us do. Don’t worry about it! There are many poses available, lighting, and editing techniques that will take care of it. Cellulite should not stand in the way of your boudoir session. I have a soft filter in photoshop that will eliminate most of it.

2) Don’t worry about your skin issues

Breakouts, wrinkles, discoloration, etc. are all things that we can stress about especially when we are getting our photos taken. These will be taken care of in the editing process. Stress can cause breakouts so it’s just good to worry about it!

3) Don’t worry about your tummy, bum or any part of your body that bothers you

By using certain poses and angles, your curves will be shown to their best advantage, while minimizing the areas of your body with which you’re not as comfortable. Also, there are many lingerie pieces that look amazing. Above all, confidence is sexy. If you are unapologetic about your body, you are more attractive.

4) Don’t worry if you don’t have a huge lingerie wardrobe

Lingerie is not essential in creating a beautiful boudoir session because your curves are the main attraction. Some of your everyday pieces can work really well in boudoir. Some examples include skirts with long slits up the side, tank tops, and off-the-shoulder shirts. If you have some lingerie too, even better. Variety is the spice of life! Did you know Chantal Benoit Photography has a complete lingerie closet you can choose from as well, from sizes small to 3x.

5) Don’t worry about not being photogenic
Most women don’t have experience about being in front of a camera it’s my job to tell you exactly where to put your hands, hips, chin.
