    Hi girls,

    I have got a boudoir photoshoot coming up and am petrified!!

    I also have no idea what I should take with me...apart from lingerie outfits!

    Has anyone got any tips on things they couldn't have done their photoshoot without, or things they wished they had taken with them?

    For example, obviously the outfits are a must, but until someone mentioned it to me, I hadn't even thought about shoes!!

    thanks loads :)

      Sexy shoes, I second that!!

      What REALLY helped me was a CD that made me think sexy thoughts! I was really nervous during the beginning of my session, but when I started humming those tunes, I relaxed and turned into this sex kitten LMAO.

      Good luck with everything. I am sure you will do fine!

            My BD shoot is in March but the lady who is doing it sent me a huge packet of information including what to bring....she said the most important thing are high high heels!! Also, I am bringing my BFF with me and some mimosa's to drink to calm my nerves! :)

              I usually tell my girls to eat a light snack before the shoot so they have energy but their tummies aren't bulging. Also avoid sugary drinks before hand just stick with water. Umm what else? Oh have fun!!! Maybe do some prep on your own and show your photographer a couple of samples of where you want to go with your style. It always helps since we can't read minds although that would be nice

              Oh and a glass of wine never hurts either

                    ah fab - any chance you could list a few of those things on here??!!

                    I can think of a few things but I'm a total worrier and I just want a list from other people so I can feel more reassured I've thought of everything!!

                    Thanks :)
