Capture My Soul - Marie Montibert Photographe - Boudoir Thérapeutique

Fist look

M contacted me during the Easter holidays, a little embarrassed to ask me if I did portrait photos in a boudoir kind of way. At my age, people don’t seem to understand that I can take pleasure in taking pictures of myself and feel beautiful. Do you still have the right to love yourself after you turn sixty?

That’s actually a good question… At what age should we stop loving each other? Is there an age limit? Are you no longer allowed to be photographed when you have a few wrinkles on your face? That’ s a big question that M. asked me.

Already at the age of 30 I couldn’t stand the sight of myself, so I’m not sure that with the years passing by I will be more kind with myself. But what if I was? Would I be a pro at Instagram selfies? Maybe a little more than what’s going on nowadays… do we stop loving our parents or our partner because they are getting older? No, I don’t think we do. We appreciate the time we have left and love them even more.

Should we do the same with ourselves? With our bodies? That’s not being full our ourselves or narcissistic. I think it’s just loving ourselves the way we love others. Wanting for yourself what you want for others. You want to have pretty pictures of what you love, which means you want pretty pictures of yourself!

So here you go, my 3 favorite pictures of the photo shoot with M. We shared a couple hours filled with happiness. M surrendered from the start, relying on my expertise. She let herself go. That’s what happiness in life is all about for her.

After the photo shoot, I asked her if there were things she would still like to do. Any dreams? She answered that she was happy and that she had enjoyed her life. She said she missed nothing. Well, hearing those words, as a 33-year-old woman, running around for my job, my life as a wife and as a mother, I got a big slap in the face!
