    I had my BD photoshoot on Saturday with Laura Ivanova. It went great! I was super nervous, but she made me feel comfortable and gave great direction. I ended up booking a room at the W Hotel and it was well worth the money. The room was gorgeous and the tall windows looking over the city made for some interesting shots.

    I wish I had....
    1. brought a strapless bra for my tank top
    2. brought more props such as cherries, suckers (ended up using a huge lollipop in the minibar $3), champagne
    3. had 1 drink beforehand to relax

    So Happy I....
    1. got an awesome hotel room. Used it later to surprise fiance. He has no clue what I was doing there beforehand. lol
    2. hired Laura as a photographer http://www.lauraivanova.com/
    3. sent her a word document of various BD shots I wanted to try to recreate
    4. got Mani/Pedi/Hair/Makeup done. It made me feel very glam and confident
    5. brought various jewelry such as a super long beaded necklace
    6. went crazy and worked out every day the week beforehand

    My outfits
    1. Tank top, boy shorts, and barefoot
    2. Bra / Panty set with heels
    3. Fiance's Viking jersey, white boy shorts, Vikings wedding garter, barefoot
    4. Veil, wedding shoes, fiances wedding band, and white lacey thong
    34 Confirmed flights!!
    1 day til Florida!!
    7 days til the wedding!!

      Sounds great. I had so much fun at mine as well, even though I was really nervous before. These are great things to think about for the ladies who haven't done a BD session yet. Thanks for sharing!

          Kris- I am the same way with FI.. I am more of the sports fanatic, but he thinks its cute when I put on my jersey to go to games or yell at the tv. So I did one set of shots with my Yankees jersey and a little white thong which may have been more for me than him. When I get them back I will share them; it was a fun little outfit to wear.

            Thanks so much for sharing. I just signed myself up for a boudoir marathon that I hope will happen in June (trying to see if any Toronto-area ladies are interested too). At the moment, kinda nervous about it, but the tip on having more than 1 drink beforehand would probably help!

                Here are my sample BD photos that I had sent my photographer. It helped me to practice the poses and my facial expressions in front of the mirrow. I felt silly, but it was good to see how my hands or body looked best.

                  I'm so inspired to do a BD Shoot but they seem so costly!
