    Someone mentioned hair and makeup. For some girls, that makes the shoot. For others, it makes them not like their pictures as much. I think it really varies by the girl & you might know which type you'd be. I personally did not want my hair & makeup fancy. I'm so natural and i don't like seeing myself with a lot of makeup. My friend had hers done when we did our shoots together. She doesn't love her pics like I do & a lot has to do with being uncomfortable with seeing herself with all that makeup.

    If you are going for a fantasy look, hair and makeup are an important part. if you want to look very casual, then you might prefer to DIY. Or if you want your makeup done & cant afford it, you might want to visit a mac counter or a similar place the day of your shoot.

      I love the idea of his clothes. Like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman when she's wearing ONLY his tie and heels...HOT!!!

      All of these ideas are great, here's a few more.
      ***How about a back shot of you in his favorite team's hat looking to the side, enough to show the side of you w/o a bra.
      ***The naughty liberian look (simply done with a button down and messy bun)

      How about cheap stores like a Strawberries or something like that...they'll have cute little panty sets. Even novelty shops have clearance sales and it's not like you'll only wear it for the shoot ;-)

      Good Luck!!!

        Lots of stuff on sale at VS -- check it out:

        Victoria's Secret - Search The Sale

        Just do a search on your size -- you might be able to get something for less than you think.
        The world is on sale b/c of the economy!

          You guys are AMAZING! Thanks for all the great ideas! I am making a list of all the things to bring from home, and some things to try to buy.

          I really like the idea of hair and makeup, but again, can't afford it right now. The MAC counter idea was great, but I won't have time since my shoot is at 11 AM and I live in the middle of nowhere. I think I will be just as happy going casual...that's more me anyway!

          I'm hitting up the mall and some other stores tomorrow night but even if I don't find anything you guys have made me really excited about using things I or FI already have. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sheet idea...and the bathtub! I'm getting more and more excited as it gets closer! I also can't forget to grab a bottle of wine on the way..I'm definitely going to need it and maybe I'll even use it in one of the shots! Haha...

          Thanks for all the help ladies! As always, you're the best!
