Since my childhood, I have harboured a love for observing and understanding others. This inclination quickly led me towards photography and the study of psychology.
For many years now, I have created photo sessions that blend my passion for humanity with that of photography, colors, and beauty.
In my work and in my life, the stories of men and women critiquing and rejecting their own bodies, filled with shame, have always deeply touched me.
A profound love and respect emanate from me towards every body, every human being, every life, every journey. These are the feelings that I strive to convey through my work.
Whether as a psychologist or a photographer, my life’s mission remains unchanged: to help each individual reconnect with themselves, to feel and embrace their uniqueness, by cultivating unconditional love, an achievable perspective for us all.
This photoshoot offers a remarkable opportunity to celebrate who you are and your relationship with your body. It is a moment and a space entirely dedicated to self-love, to the compassionate embrace of what deserves to be brought to light and felt.
In a society that instinctively pushes us to judge and reject certain aspects of our image and personality, it is important to remember that we are nature. As we grow up in a world that imposes beauty standards, we lose the ability to expand our vision of what is beautiful, in others as well as in ourselves. The essence of this endeavour is to create integration, a radical embrace of all the elements that make us.

The Grains of Love:
An Initial Meeting
We will take the time to get to know you and listen to your aspirations. The themes of self-love and your relationship with your body will be discussed.

After the Photoshoot
I will dedicate time to edit the photos with all my devotion and passion. This beautiful process often allows me to discover elements that unfolded in the background. This process will reveal your evolution and showcase the person you are.
You will receive 50 edited photos.

A Second Meeting
We will delve deeper into the work initiated during our first session, creating a space for listening to present emotions and the release of blocks hindering self-love. Various methods such as dialogue, EMDR, family constellations, or somatic practices will be offered.
For 2 hours, we will immerse ourselves in photography and sensation to explore the themes discussed during our meetings. Emotions and states of mind will be welcomed with compassion. Tools used will include meditation, dance, breathing, movement, and dialogue.
After the Photoshoot
I will take the time to edit the photos with all my sensitivity and passion. This exceptional moment often allows me to discover elements that enriched our experience. This process will reveal your evolution and showcase the person you are. You will receive around a hundred edited photos, and we will have a review session to integrate the elements of the photoshoot. I can also provide you with self-work suggestions: practices, meditations, etc.
I am eager to offer you either of these experiences. Both options share the same values and intentions:
Self-love, Compassion, Transformation.
The main distinction lies in the duration and intensity of the experience you desire.

“A big thank you to Bénédicte for this healing photoshoot and for allowing me to be vulnerable and authentic in her presence.”
“I received a beautiful photoshoot with Bénédicte. I needed professional, natural, and feminine photos for my business. I generally feel uncomfortable and nervous in front of a camera. But Bénédicte was amazing! She started our session with meditation and gave me all the time I needed to relax and come back to myself. She provided gentle guidance and comforted me with her words throughout the photoshoot. She moved delicately around me; Bénédicte took the time to truly listen and understand my needs, and she captured them perfectly. Even better than I had imagined myself. But the real gift I received from Bénédicte is more love and appreciation for my body. She took such beautiful photos of me that I couldn’t help but see my own beauty! Thank you for this gift.”
