{Excuse 1} – Winnipeg boudoir photographers

Who remembers my first post of 2016? It went a little something like this…

During my time off over Christmas, I had the opportunity to attend many a holiday party and chat with many a woman and I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of excuses people gave when talking about doing a boudoir shoot. So, I’ve decided that 2016 will be all about NO more excuses. Over the next month, I plan on putting all the excuses given under the microscope, dissecting them one by one and offering you a solid reason why you SHOULD, why EVERY women should do a boudoir session!

So let’s get right to it. Excuse #1, by far THEE biggest and most common excuse I hear ALL-THE-TIME. “I just need to lose (insert number here) pounds.” Clearly you have not read thru my info or seen my mantra, which goes a little something like this “Let us show you how beautiful you are right now, not 10lbs lighter or more toned, but you, right now.”

Number 1, you’re fantastic just the way you are, it’s true and we can prove it. Number 2, we’re only human, we have the best intentions but it can be hard to act on them. I’m not trying to discourage your weight loss or fitness goals, I fully support healthy improvements, but realistically, we’ve all been trying to lose that xx amount of pounds for years now. We have had many a mature client come through our studio doors who have told us just that, they kept putting off a shoot like this because they weren’t at their ideal weight and suddenly 20 years went by. We’re not saying that being a mature age and doing a boudoir shoot is a bad thing, (because those ladies can sure rock a shoot) we just think you could’ve had a few sessions in between and so do they 😉

Something similar I hear often that coincides with today’s excuse is: “I’m a curvier/curve less/older (insert your excuse adjective here) woman and I don’t see anyone like that on your website.” Then you’re not looking hard enough lol. We have had women of all shapes, sizes, ages & ethnicities come to see us for their boudoir experience. Check out our “Signature sessions” under “categories” and you will see voluminous types of women. Our diversity goes further that what you see on our blog as well, we just simply don’t have permission to show every client’s session, but maybe you could help add to that?

Here’s the thing, at Coco it’s our job to make you look your best and feel amazing in the process. We are professionals and are damn good at what we do. We know how to pose women to optimize their assets and minimize their insecurities. We do minor post process editing, something that varies with each client. Prior to booking a session with Coco, we discuss what you love about yourself, what you’re concerned about (and make you love it) and what edits (if any) you would like to have done. Things like minimizing cellulite, stretch marks, removing blemishes…in the end, the photos all still look just like you, just a more glammed up, with a new found confidence emanating from your pores you.

So, if this sounds like you, stop it! Excuse busted, now let us show you how beautiful you are, right now.

{Mokada collaborative} – Winnipeg Boudoir Photographers

We have the wonderful fortune of collaborating with a talented custom jewelry company named Mokada Jewelry. We are also very fortunate that they are now our new Waterfront neighbours! One of the many perks of having a session with us is you get to be draped in some of the finest bling that Winnipeg has to offer. When a luxury company teams with another luxury company, you simply get spoiled. Ready for your boudoir experience? Contact us at info@cocoboudoir.ca.

{New Studio…finally} – Winnipeg boudoir photographers

We’re a little slow on our official announcement, but better late than never, right? We finally moved into our new luxurious Waterfront studio space in October of 2015 and we couldn’t be happier! It’s a little space but it allows us to cloak it in absolute opulence. I wanted to be able to show a small look at what can be done in our decadent space so I put out a model call and revived the Signature Girl photo shoots we had once done in our earlier years. Miss Akrotiri answered our call and we shot the very next day. She was such a natural, but I’ll let you see that for yourself, so without further ado, your first glimpse of a session in our new gorgeous little studio.

{Glamorous | Miss T} – Winnipeg Boudoir Photographer

Coco went thru a bit of a shake up a few years back and in the hustle and bustle of it all we weren’t able to feature all our clients who gave us their permission. One of my goals for 2016 is to ensure all those beautiful women and their stories are shared with you all. So from our 2013 archives, here is the lovely Miss T…

Confidence is key and Miss T was no stranger to it. She knocked this photo session out of the park. Often after I photograph someone, they tend to leave a distinctive word in mind. The word that rang strongest for her was G L A M O U R O U S, it seemed to drip from every part of her. I have been wanting to share her session for so very long now and am thrilled to finally have it up as an inspiration to those wanting to do a shoot of their very own.

{Jovial | Miss B} – Winnipeg Boudoir Photographers

As promised, the lovely Miss B. She was absolutely jovial from the moment I met her over coffee. She has an infectious smile and knows how to work the camera. All of her outfits made me want to go out and buy them that second. What else can I say besides she makes my job so very easy.

{Happy 2016!} – Winnipeg Boudoir Photographers

Happy New Year! I hope you rang in the new year as loud and as fun as I did. It’s 2016 and I’m finally back to a normal schedule after a bit of holidays. During my time off I had the opportunity to attend many a Christmas party and chat with many a woman and I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of excuses people gave when talking about doing a boudoir shoot. So, I’ve decided that 2016 will be all about NO more excuses. Over the next month, I plan on putting all the excuses given under the microscope, dissecting them one by one and offering you a solid reason why you SHOULD, why EVERY women should!

Clearly Miss B had no excuses. She simply strolled in with confidence and some of the best outfits I have seen to date. I will be featuring her more later this week, but for now, a small teaser.

{Mission Accomplished | Miss J} – Winnipeg Boudoir Photographers

Whether they want to admit or not, every woman who comes to see us does a session for themselves even if it’s a gift for a loved one BUT we absolutely adore when a woman comes into our studio JUST for themselves, just like J did. Hear what she had to say about her experience with Coco Boudoir.

“My time with you, Karrie and Somboun was wonderful. It was just what I needed at the time. I had so much fun, but it also made me feel beautiful again. I was days from my 40th birthday and I was in a bad place and needed a boost of confidence and you definitely accomplished that. It was such an amazing and uplifting experience and I hope to do it again sometime.”

If you want to feel this amazing then give us a shout to book a session of your own! info@cocoboudoir.ca

{Enthusiastic | Miss C} – Winnipeg Boudoir Photographer

Miss C came to us to create a surprise album for her and her husband’s wedding anniversary – a very lucky man! She was so enthusiastic from the moment I met her for coffee and throughout the entire experience. She seemed to be beaming. The majority of women who come to see us do a photography shoot as a gift for their loved one, but EVERY woman also does it for themselves.

Here’s what C had to say:

“I loved, loved, loved the entire Coco experience!! I didn’t know what to expect, and it blew me away. Everyone listened to my ideas and made me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world. I would highly recommend that every woman do this once in their lives, it was such a wonderful experience.”
