For ideas maybe a fun dress up outfits (halloween is here!) with sexy bra and panties peeking out, maybe a super sexy bra and thong set, or maybe just a white sheet. Don't for get to bring a selection od accessories (really long and medium length necklaces, choker), and shoes with high heels. The higher the better! Good Luck and have a blast!

I agree...it's the accessories for me...I am getting some new lingerie items...but I have been buying lots of rhumba panties..Burlington lets u put jewlery in layaway so when I was getting other stuff I got lot's of pearls..and some really high heels...I am super excited...

This is where I will go if one day I want to do one. Maybe for our first anniverary, if I'm not pregnant. lol

OMG - I can't believe the before and after pics! It's unbelivebale how great editing can make such a difference! I mean the girls in the pics looked great to begin with, but the editing just made their skin glow! If I lived anywhere near Houston, this is definitely who I'd want to use for BD pics.

Ten Tips on How to Feel Relaxed & Sexy when being Photographed

 

1. Focus on Having Fun

Make your goal to have fun, not to get great shots - thatâ€s my job :) Everyone looks their best when theyâ€re genuinely having a great time.

 

2. Visualize

I know this is very Tony Robbins of me, but heâ€s not the only one who recognizes the power of visualization. Make it a practice to see the experience of having a great time, feeling sexy, everything going smoothly, seeing the photos and loving them. Be specific and visualize from your point of view, as if youâ€re in it.

 

3. Get Inspired

Look at movies and art for inspiration, tear pages out of magazines and begin to recognize your style and sensibility… what is sexy to you? This will help you communicate with your photographer and help guide the shoot.

 

4. Show Up With All Youâ€ve Got

When I say show up, I donâ€t mean to just show up. Bring it. And be open. Karen deserves all the credit for the success of her shoot, because she showed up, really stretched way outside her comfort zone and gave it all she had.

 

5. Be Sensual

Use your five senses during the shoot: play music, have a bite of chocolate, a sip of wine, put on a favorite scent, wear a kick-ass outfit you feel great in, and think of memories that make you blush, smile, and sweat… Do everything and (well, almost) anything that gets you hot.

 

6. Be Silly

Any shyness tends to go right out the window after the first few minutes or so of being silly. I am the biggest ham during a shoot, and I embarrass myself frequently (not always on purpose), but this serves me well as it usually puts everyone at ease. Just goof off and have fun! See how outrageous and silly you can be - itâ€s easier for the photographer to tone you down, rather than fire you up!

 

7. Create Movement

I often hear but I donâ€t know how to pose. Well thatâ€s good, letâ€s not do that! Create a little action, however, so thereâ€s energy in every shot. Câ€mon you all know how to flirt! If youâ€re on a shoot with me, I can show you some sexy moves (hey hey).

 

8. Remember the Context

The sheer fact that youâ€re in front of the camera being photographed is damn sexy… itâ€s powerful and vulnerable at the same time, which is an unbeatable combo - enjoy it!

 

9. Fake It

Iâ€m not telling you to fake the real deal, but if you donâ€t feel 100% confident and sexy while on a photo shoot, FAKE it. Works every time.

 

10. Be Yourself

Honor who you are, in this moment. Donâ€t wait to lose a few pounds. (Besides, Iâ€m a pro at retouching, and Photoshop is the best personal trainer in the world - more on that in another post!) But itâ€s important that you FEEL sexy, so if working out for a few weeks is going to do that, then great. But letâ€s not wait for all the planets to be aligned and your bangs to be the right length. The time is now. You are sexy and beautiful just as you are.

 

Bonus Tip: And of course, add alcohol :)

Great suggestions!!

I wish I could take credit, but the suggestions weren't mine - I was only commenting on what someone else had shared...I think it was Cougs that posted the tips :) But glad they were helpful :)

I have my shoot on Saturday and I am so excited. I am nervous, but I am hoping it doesn't come through in the photos. Judging by the examples shown here, I don't think it will! wink.gif
