BD book thoughts?

I tried searching for other threads but nothing would come up so here I am.
I doubt I'm the only one that has insecurities so how did you get over it and get these pictures done? I've never seen any pictures so are they tasteful or is that depending on the photographer and what you want? What do they provide you with? i.e. hair/makeup/outfits. I'm just really curious about the whole process and cost. Maybe just maybe if I hear enough good things I might consider doing this since I know how much FI would appreciate it. TIA for the input!!!

Im sure it does depend on the photographer, but for the most part I think Boudours are very tasteful.
There are some that include makeup and hair, I know that most "marathons" do.
To loosen up a bit I plan on drinking a glass of wine or 2 during!
You should google Boudour and you can see tonnes of pictures!
I think this is a great present for the mister~ I think he would appreicate it very much !
GOod Luck with whatever you decide!

I plan on using his favorite soccer jersey I bought him for christmas. A flowy satin robe, and a longer sexy satin nighty. I get up to 4 outfit changes, but those are the only outfits I felt comfortable wearing. I'm not exactly a small girl, so I'm very self conscious about my thighs, belly, and well the rest of my body!!
I'm just going to go with it and hopefully loosen up enough. I'm taking my MOH with me, so I may grab a bottle of wine for the day and just make her drive home!!

You should absolutely look at photographers portfolio's and see what the pictures look like. They are completely tasteful and can be as naughty or nice as you want them to be.
We ALL have body insecurities; whether you are a size 0 or a size 200... First of all, you have to tell yourself that this is for FI and he loves your body as it is, perceived flaws and all. Second, I plan on drinking a bit to loosen myself up. Third, these photog's get paid to make you look good; they are professionals - so find someone that you have complete confidence in...
It's something my FI would never expect.. I am super excited to shock him.

first and foremost just do some research online. there are plenty of samples. and i'm sure there will be many a brides that would be willing to show you their photos that they had done.
you need to then find a photographer you are comfortable with. maybe its a woman maybe its a male photographer. maybe its you with a remote to your camera
the shoot is really up to you and your comfort level. maybe you just feel comfortable with some implied stuff under some sheets or maybe a little lin-ger-eee. maybe its full artistic nudes. the photographer should understand and be able to pick up on your level of comfort.
so with that said it's all up to you
good luck and just have fun with it. the more fun you have the better the pics will turn out. (a little glass of wine never hurts either haha)

Find a photog that you are comfortable with and they can help you camoflage the areas you may not want to flaunt. Trust them, their job is to make you look good (that's what you are paying them for).
