    Thanks to all the beautiful and hot ladies on this forum getting their boudoir pics taken, I decided that I would present FI with his very own bd book on our wedding day. I had a few issues though...I'm very self conscious about my body and the thought of getting semi naked in front of a stranger freaks me out. So I decided to go the diy route. Armed with my trusty digital camera and a tripod, I took the pics myself. I must say it's been an experience and I love being in control of every aspect of it.

    Firstly, the link to the highlights: Shutterfly
    Password- view

    Here's the breakdown of tools needed and cost:

    Photoshop
    Day rate for swanky hotel room (a cheap hotel won't work hehe), Opus Hotel in Vancouver, highly recommended- $150
    Tripod- $20
    Pikto.ca photobook (8x11 leather bound, metallic red embossing on cover, 28 matte pages full-bleed, vellum leafs on first and last pages)- $110
    Lingerie and accessories (Frederick's, peacockandstrutt.com), because you can't wear ones he's seen before- $200
    Hair and makeup- Free!

    Let me know if this is something you're considering and I'll be glad to help with questions!

                Great job! There's no way that I could have done that myself.

                    Jeez, I am not sure what you could possibly be self-conscious about with your body. You did a great job!
