So, FSIL's first anniversary is coming up...I suggested she take BD pics to give to DH..since 1st anniversary is paper anyway. She'd never heard of BD pics, so i described them to her adn then showed her a bunch of sameple (thanks ladies!). Well, she dosn't want to spend the $ on a professional, so she asked ME to take some!!!!

 

We spent the afternoon thinking of ideas. She's going to come over Monday, we're gonna have a few (many!) drinks and then take some pics :) I'm hoping to get enough liquor in her to get her to go to the park where there are a lot of trails (she mentioned wanting some outside, but not having the guts).

 

Her DH is SOOOO going to know i gave her the idea :)

 

We went to JoAnn fabrics and got a bunch of the iron on rhinstone letter...she's going to make 3 pairs of cute undies...one that siad "Mrs. XXXXX" Another that said "I *heart* Joe" and another with their wedding date on it :)

 

I'm going to spend this weekend reading the manual to my camera to figure out how to use it the right way :)

 

We've got a bunch of ideas already, but does anyone have suggestions...especially photographers, I am by NO means a professional (I just like to take pictures).

My sister and I are going to do the same thing. We're gonna have some drinks and take some pics. I looked into a professional, but OMG they are very expensive, and with all the wedding expenses, I decided I could DIY this project as well. Does her fiance like sports or racing or anything? A girl I know did her BD pics and one outfit she wore jean shorts and had heild 2 racing flags over her boobs. (her hubby is into racing) The picture was totally sexy. Or if he likes sports, she could do a cute shot from the side with jeanshorts or panty shorts and his favorite teams ball-cap on. I say, just have a blast with it. Pick a couple of out fits, and go for it. My friend recommended NOT wearing your favorite outfit first because you may be nervous in the beginning, and it will show on your facial expressions. Wait till you've taken a few pictures and are loosened up a bit to wear your FAVORITE :) Let us know how they turn out! My sis and I are doing them sometime in August.

I love the work shirt idea! If she still has her veil, I've seen pics with the veil and boy shorts (she will always be his bride). I think his hobbies/interests will be cute!

 

My hint - be very aware of what is in the background. A shelf or tv stand makes it look like it was done in your living room. Otherwise...have fun!

I can't believe I haven't seen any shots with the veil! I love that idea!

 

Good tip on being aware of your surroundings! I sell real estate and I can't tell you how many photos I see of dishes in the sink, clothes spread around the room, I've even seen tampons on the bathroom counter.

They are into the Mets, so I think she's going to do one in just a jersy. She's got a TON of longerie she hasn't really used, so she's excited to get to use it. She just has to get theigh highs and maybe a boa :)

 

Her DH works in a suit and tie every day, so she's going to grab a shirt and tie and we're going to do one with the shirt spread open (just covering her boobs) with the tie around her neck.

 

We're going to move my couch out of the way and we have a sold greyish wall we're gonna use behind her. Maybe hang different colored sheets for different looks. We also have a kigsize bed and a wall of windows, so we're thinking of some fun in front of window picutes and laying accross the bed. We have to be careful, because like was mentioned, I don't want her DH look realized it's my house the second he looks at the pics :)

 

I'm so excited!! :)
