      i had my shoot on the 2nd, and here are a few tips i have for you:

      make sure you're feeling beautiful... lingerie, getting your hair, makeup, & nails done. if you feel sexy it'll come through in the pictures.

      bring jewelry, & remember to put it on. i went through my whole shoot with no earrings & 3 pairs in my bag. (oops!!)

      eat a light snack or meal, depending on the time of your shoot

      have a glass of wine to loosen up.

      Have FUN!

        Yes, I totally agree with Aimee. I had my nails and toenails done. I put on individual false eyelashes. One last minute thing I thought of that FI will like: I brought one of my FI's button down dress shirts and just wore that and panties and high heels. Just bring lots of lingerie and heel choices. Also, I brought tons of jewelry. I did put on an all over shimmer lotion and it made me feel great, not anything with major sparkle just suddle and my photographer loved it. I had a couple drinks and I was good to go. You will do great! I can't wait to see the teasers!

            I agree with the idea of bringing accessories - great heels, jewelery, garter, nylons - but remember to use them. I brought a lot of the accessories but did not use a lot of them. While I love my pictures, I wish I had incorporated more of the accessories.

            Also, RELAX and HAVE FUN!

                    Everything these girls said-I will echo:

                    -I also brought one of FI's shirts and had a little fun with it. (its a shirt I hate but he wears all the time.)
                    - get some excercise or movement during the day- It always makes me more confident and also I am more connected to my body. So in the pics you won't look so stiff.
                    - Don't be afraid to play and move your body in different ways. I kept trying to remind myself of this in my shoot. This was a tip from my friend who is a photog and it really does make a difference.
                    - Have Music and enjoy it. It's really fun!

                      I think I am going to bring the tie he is wearing for our wedding, hopefully the photog knows how to tie it!!
