Booked my BD shoot for FREE! Help me find cheap outfits!
Posted 09 June 2009 - 01:10 AM
Well, a friends of mine works with a woman who is trying to expand her portfolio. Her photos of scenery/objects are fabulous, but she's just starting to photograph people. Anyway, she is offering me a free shoot in exchange for the use of my photos (I get to choose which ones...and will hopefully crop my face out of them). I'm sooo excited! She is going to make me a book too (that I have to pay for of course) but it will still be a great deal in the end. My shoot is this coming Sunday morning, and I'm meeting her at my friend's apartment. I'm sooo nervous and I have nothing to wear. I'm going shopping this week, but have a really small budget.
Any ideas of where to find nice lingerie for cheap? VS is going to be out of my price range, although I will check their clearance rack!
Coincidentally, FI and I were talking about wedding gifts the other day and he was saying we should save our money (we just bought a house) and "make" each other gifts instead. Well, I jumped all over it was like OK!
Then of course he says, I know what you're going to make me...something to do with pictures (he knows I'm picture obsessed)...haha
He thinks he's so smart. I hope he's still surprised!

my favorite BD outfit was a white sheet.

Here are some free ideas, when I did mine my fav. shots were the ones that actually cost the least, simply because they weren't so 'costumey'
*satin sheet shots - maybe pull a satin sheet from your linen closet (wish I did this)
*I used (which cannot be shared sorry) one of my DH's shirts from his store with his logo on it, rolled short with little cute panties that matched they cost only a few dollars
*wear your own jeans -- the ones that make you feel fantastic, no shirt - and strategically place your arms, I did this with a really BOLD necklace that I'd borrowed from a girlfriend.
*if possible, based on location, bathtub shots are wayyy sexy -- lots of bubbles, wear your bathing suit (for personal modesty), no one would be the wiser
*borrow something from your FI's closet, necktie, dress shirt, team jersey, I snuk his old highschool leather letter jacket from his hockey team, and took a puck from his hockey bag as a prop he was stunned at the thought process.
That could be your whole shoot... on a zero budget!
Have a great time, and if you are gonna spend any money on this .....
HAIR AND MAKEUP!!!!!
that is my $0.02!

I agree that TJ MAXand Target is great. Lately most of the stores have been having great sales, but you just gotta really look around.
I saw a necklace that I absolutly LOVE, but it was way too pricey. It was very bold, a long chain, it drapped down/ dangled in the back also. It looked super sexy on the model's back in the pic.I'm in search of a similair one. Maybe at "Claires" or something.
