I’m Antoine and thank you for stopping by. I’ve been shooting boudoir photography for over 4 years now and I often get asked how I got started with this type of photography. The truth is that I stumbled onto boudoir photography by chance when a friend, who knew I was an event photographer, had a milestone birthday. At that time, I had no idea about the art of boudoir photography, and I avoided taking the photos for my friend until I understood better the art. So, after much study and probably more nervous than my friend, we did the shoot. I was really surprised at how much the images impacted my friend. In the images we created, she saw herself in a new way, the way everyone seemed to see her but the way she often didn’t’….it was empowering and from then I was hooked on this art form.
To me boudoir photography gives woman, men and/or couples permission to see themselves differently and in a way, they may not have seen themselves before…. strong, confident and fearless. Now I just love seeing people go from nervous to strong and empowered from the experience of realizing more that they are enough just the way they are!
I have had my own boudoir shoot and I understand what it feels like to be in front of a camera so I know that the experience can be exciting and also a bit stressful (because it is usually outside of our comfort zones) which is why, as part of the art of creating tasteful images, I pride myself on providing an experience to help everyone in front of my camera to feel confident and after the shoot….just a little more fearless.
