Top 5 excuses women don't book a Boudoir Experience

I know! We can all come up with 20 different excuses for not doing a Boudoir session. When we get nervous, we make excuses.

A boudoir session is sooooo scary that our mind will find any excuses to persuade us not to do it. And this is when you have to be brave ladies. Because this experience is worth it and might change your life! Here are the top 5 excuses women don’t book a Boudoir shoot and I hope they are not yours :)

1/ I’m too old.

Oh gosh, I soooo disagree with that! A woman is never, ever too old to allow herself to feel beautiful and celebrate herself. I can definitely see beauty in any woman on earth. You may not be that same girl as you were in your 20's but now you're even better, you're a woman. A strong, independent, confident woman. You've been through life and can share so many stories and emotions through your eyes and your face, you have so much more confidence and wisdom. There's an age when beauty is outside and an age when beauty is inside, but there's always beauty!

2/ I need to lose a few kilos first.

Well, that's THE excuse that will always stop you from doing this incredible experience. You see, a Boudoir session is not to capture yourself when you're "perfect", when you've lost 20 kilos and you're size 6. The whole point is to capture yourself now, because now, you're proud of yourself and you love yourself!

I think it’s amazing to have goals and want to get healthy, but does that mean you have to hate your body to do those things? Absolutely NOT! You should love yourself every step of the way. Be proud of yourself. Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate where you are now, and then have one when you lose those kilos to celebrate how far you’ve come!

3/ I am not photogenic.

Every living women is photogenic! I'm sorry to say that but what is important is the right photographer who is able to direct you with flattering poses, create the perfect lighting conditions and most importantly make you relax in front of the camera. There's a lot going on to get a beautiful portrait and that's why you see the difference between a selfie and a professional image. You might think you're not photogenic because you haven't been to a professional photographer yet. Let me pose you the right way with the perfect outfit and a beautiful makeup, then we'll see if you're not photogenic!

4/ I don’t know how to pose.

Great! Like 99% of my clients! Unless you are a professional model, you're not supposed to know how to pose for a photoshoot, I don't think you have a class in high school for that yet. That is why I offer a fully directed session, which means I show you or explain to you how to pose the best way to get a beautiful photo. In photography, details are quite important, your hands, arms, head, hair, makeup...everything need to be in place in order to capture a great portrait. My job is to take care of all these little details. I tell you to move your right hand this way and your chin forward because it looks better on camera. In photography we play with light and angles, sometimes you might feel weird but that's normal.

Your job, on the other hand is to RELAXXXXXX. So don't stress, you just need to bring your enthusiasm and follow my direction. That easy!

5/ I can’t afford it.

Well, I don't know your financial situation but I work with any kind of budgets. My sitting fee allows you to come for a full makeover and a photoshoot where I walk you through the most flattering poses. Then it's entirely up to you how much you want to spend on your portraits as there is no minimum required. You only buy what you like! I'm very picky regarding the products I offer as I always choose the best quality. I also offer a payment plan to make it easier for you to get exactly what you want. Usually my clients saved for their photoshoot, just like you would a girl's night out, a vacation or a designer bag you really want. But remember, a Boudoir session is not only about the images, it's about the experience. What you get at the end, this confidence in yourself, the feeling to be so beautiful and powerful and the magic to reconnect to your true self is Priceless. If you want it, you can have it!

Everyone is Photogenic

Your Photogenic Beauty Is in the Eyes of Your Photographer

As a Portrait Photographer I photograph a lot of women of all shapes, sizes, ages and nationalities. My clients always look elegant, feminine, confident, capable, strong, they are all amazingly beautiful...and yet, women keep telling me "I am not photogenic". Enough is enough. Next time you hear someone say they are not photogenic, please send them this post.

  • Yes, You Are Very Photogenic! 

Don't ever think otherwise. If you don’t believe me, then it’s due to a lack of understanding about the true meaning of the term “photogenic.” Let me explain.

According to my dictionary definition, photogenic means: suitable for being photographed especially because of visual appeal . As a photographer who is constantly seeking out subjects with visual appeal, I can attest that you have it.

There are many types of beauty in the world, ranging from glorious sunsets and raindrops on a leaf to the compassionate look in a mother’s eyes. A photogenic scene may be a specific landscape taken at a particular hour with just the perfect clouds, like the image below.



Of all the people I have met in the world, I have yet to meet a woman who is not truly beautiful. It is up to the photographer to recognize her beauty, focus on it and showcase it skilfully through the camera lens. 

It’s time to erase all thoughts that you are not photogenic from your head.

  • Photographing the Beauty of People

With portraiture, I aim to capture the grace and attractiveness of each individual. This isn’t accomplished by hiding a woman’s features with makeup or props, or by setting her up in unnatural, formal poses. The allure of each woman is found in her genuine character and how she expresses herself in real life. Whether you are an ambitious businesswoman, a bride glowing with joy or a frazzled mom chasing your toddler around the park, you are displaying beauty that can be captured on camera.

It’s up to the photographer to bring your beauty forward. When your mouth turns up gently with delight or your eyes crinkle in contemplation, the photographer needs to recognize the unspoken beauty of those moments. Along with the right lighting and a complementary background, every woman can be featured in a breathtaking work of art. When photographic expertise is practiced,
every subject, action and scene is highly photogenic.






For instance I asked my client on the right to dance and have fun while I was trying to capture the perfect shot of her looking natural, smiling, dancing and looking at me.

I took around 10 images to get THIS one. 



  • What’s the Secret to Looking Great in pictures?

Your photographer is responsible for determining the general composition and lighting, and setting the right apertures, shutter speeds, depth of field and contrast ratios. So what can you do to ensure that your beauty shines?

One tip that rises above the rest is: "Do not stress out about it". Women show their most beautiful features when relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Easier said than done, right? Most people tense up in front of a lens. Yet it’s up to the photographer to make you comfortable.






What I usually tell my client during a photo session to make her relax is that for the next 5/10 minutes, she can move around, pose how she likes, have fun, be serious, laugh, move like a model, play with her hair, hands, body...

She does whatever she likes and it makes her relax and Enjoy more!

My clients always come to me with doubts and looking a bit shy. But after a while they understand that it's not about looking perfect in front of the camera, it's by being themselves so I can capture their true beauty.

  • Forget Those Bad Photos from Your Past

It’s impossible to look great on camera with a fake smile plastered on your face. We’ve all suffered from years of bad photos that have us running for cover whenever anyone yells, “Say cheese!” These unattractive photos represent only the work of a bad photographer, not the real beauty of the subject.

For the same reason that most people shy away from the stage, it’s normal to want to hide from the camera. Yet an expert photographer will make sure that you forget about the camera and that your expressions derive smoothly from genuine emotion. Be natural and be yourself, and you’ll look beautiful in pictures too.

  • False Beauty Crafted by Industry

We are confronted by stunning models on every magazine cover and advertisement. While they are real women, their beautiful image isn’t 100% real. A team of stylists using sophisticated equipment crafted that image. The woman was photographed in a studio with a flurry of assistants prompting her every move. Afterwards, the image was enhanced further via Photoshop and other graphic tools.

Make no mistake; this type of beauty is entirely artificial. Don’t fall for the false insecurities that these pictures may cause.

You are truly amazing, you are superbly photogenic and you can be the beautiful star of a magnificent photograph!
