Boudoir photography is a very personal experience. Over the years, it has become more popular than engagement photos.
I feel honored, that these women let me see them in ways no one else does. They trust me! I think being a female photographer helps to portrait a vision of sensuality.
As she enters my studio, she is set up in a candlelit private room, where she is free to take her time to change attire and refresh her make-up. A glass of wine is offered to help her relax and unwind, while soft music is playing in the background.
From one female to another, I understand how to make her feel comfortable. There are no perfect bodies. I have tricks to accentuate the features and curvalicious bodies. Every women is conscious about her body not being perfect. This is a great opportunity for me to make her feel sexy and incredible about herself.
The session is done at my studio, as opposed to her home to avoid interruption such as the phone, the doorbell or noise coming from children. The phone or doorbell is not answered at the studio, since the focus is solely on her. Providing a calm atmosphere is important so the focus remains solely on her, as she is able to rest and divulge her private side.
This is not a snap and go experience like the boudoir marathons done in hotel rooms, by other types of photographers, where clients all receive the same images. An average session can take around 2 hours. My goal is to pamper her and to provide a unique experience.
A consultation is always recommended to discuss the session, style, views, sample my portfolios, products available and discuss clothing ideas or not!!!
Go ahead pick up the phone. I know you want to!!!
Here is what one of my clients had to say about her session:
“A couple of years ago I read an article on a photographer from Orleans who did Boudoir photography. The article intrigued me and I thought that might be something I would like to experience. I approached the time in my life where I was feeling great about myself and decided it was now or never.
Working with Chantal was a fantastic experience. Her professionalism was paramount and she genuinely took an interest in the type of image that I wanted to convey in my pictures. She was very open to suggestions and made the shoot fun and exciting. She was able to capture the best of who I am and the resulting pictures surpassed my expectations.
I am very pleased that I picked an amazing photographer like Chantal – Jane G.”
