    First of all, I NEVER thought I'd be considering B-pics. I'm kind of on the shy side, and it just never crossed my mind until I joined this forum. Now that I've been around awhile, and have seen so many amazing pics, and read so many positives reviews...I'm starting to have a change of heart, but don't really know where to begin.
    I live very near Milwaukee, and only about an hour north of Chicago, so either of those locations would work for me. I figure I probably have more options in Chicago. Anyway, I know there are other BDW ladies that have done b-pics in the Chicago area. Any recommendations? I do love Leigh's work, but don't know how often she is in Chicago.
    If I'm kind of on the fence about the whole thing, should I go for it?

      I say GO FOR IT! I would have never considered them either until all these girls come back with awesome, beautiful, tasteful photos.

      you should go for it, I am super shy about being barely clothed and it was so liberating it has actually helped my relationship even though he has no idea about it...its also a lot of fun and your hubby to be will be so in awe you will have brownie points forever!

          Susan, I totally agree. I could NEVER have imagined myself doing this - not in a million years. Then I saw what the other girls did and was impressed. For me, I absolutely had to have Leigh be the photographer. I feel like I know her well and I can trust her completely. I'm arranging my site visit so that I'm in Cabo at the same time as her! haha.

          The fact that its something that I would never ever do is what makes it so exciting - and is what makes it the best gift for Aaron on our wedding day. I don't think anyone would ever think I'd ever do something like this (one girl at work use to call me "square" when she worked here because she thought I was boring!! ), so I like the idea of doing something shocking like this! It'll be fun! Go for it, Susan!

          Susan, I think you should do it. In fact, if you would do it sometime later this summer, I'd probably do it with you... if you wanted.

            I kindof wish I had done B-Pics the last time Leigh was in Chicago. But now I think I'll wait and if I ever get prego and I'll get bump pics with Cain and I.

              I'd totally be up for getting a small group together sometime this summer. For some reason, I think I'd actually be more comfortable with a few "accomplices". Maybe we'd be able to negotiate a better rate too.

                That sounds good!! I'm in. Plus it will give me some motivation to work out.

                I don't know much about Chicago, but I know there are a lot of new condos on the lake in Milwaukee. I wonder if we could negotiate a rental rate for the day. They have a very industrial modern feel.
