    I thought I would be OK since I know my photog and am generally pretty comfortable with my body - I guess I am excited and have told NO ONE (except you girls of course!)

      Missy, good luck! I'm going to do mine in November and I will probably be nervous also. You'll probably be more relaxed as the shoot progresses.

        I am lost - Boudoir pics...i don't even know what those are? I assume they are "sexy" pics - that you give your FI as a wedding gift or something? Do they have the "subtle cover up " with the sheets - like they do on "how do look good naked" (on Lifetime).
        I love the idea...but would need to do them closer to the wedding date - after Weight Watchers, Buff Bride, the gym etc........ha ha.

        Please tell me more about these, and if you didn't know anyone who was a photographer, how do you think you would find someone to do these?

        THANKS - this sounds interesting

          Good luck! I am sure once you are there you will feel more comfortable then you feel thinking about it :)

            Some suggestions............

            1. Confidence is key.... wine, music, whatever it takes - if you are confident in yourself, the pictures will just "happen".

            2. may sound dumb, but go watch a few reruns of americas next top model - watch the models change poses at a shoot.... practice modeling in front of a mirror....... -- repeat the same things in front of the camera! --

            If you come and only rely on instruction from the photog, the pictures are dead. --

            In general, when I shoot models, I have a basic idea of the overal concept - but it is up to the model to make the shot.

            so to recap - have fun, be confident, and WORK IT! :)

              Relax... they will be fantastic! I actually had a lot of fun taking my BD pics :) I got all made up, felt really beautiful, and just had fun with them. If you are comfortable with the photog (which I think is the most important part), then you will be fine, and the pics will be fantastic! My DH LOVES his BD album, and was shocked to get it. He never would've guessed that I would do something like that, which I think makes them even sexier.

              Tracy - BD photos are sexy pictures - no rules, just whatever you think is sexy. A lot of girls have done them, so if you do a search on here, you will find a lot of posts. Many of us have gotten recommendations from girls in our area, but you can also find photogs online who do boudoir. I would highly recommend meeting with someone before booking to make sure you will be comfortable with them.

              Go Missy!!! I'm so excited for you! I'm sure the photos will be amazing!

              I like the idea of some good, sexy music! And I'm always a supporter of wine!

                  I did mine last week and I had a BLAST. My photog gave me some wine just because she thought it would make good pictures. Just be confident that you look great and your FI loves you just the way you are. Have fun, try to look at some victoria's secret poses and add your little touch. I could do that every day! it was that much fun. :) You'll get out of there feeling sexier than ever!

                  I'm dying to tell FI and I have 5 more months to keep it a secret! Its eating me inside haha

                    my suggestion would be to go in with an open mind.

                    FH and I 'pretend' with photoshoots all the time and they are a lot of fun!
