Ohh, good idea with the FI shirt. Sounds super sexy!

 

I've not done a boudoir shoot, but I think that maybe a long necklace would be a nice accessory to play around with for poses. Just an idea!

blush2.gifblush2.gifKatie - Vdaybride is totally right, music was SUCH a huge help, no awkward silence and you just enjoy the music and do your thing.

 

Alcohol really helped make it fun too, I'm so self conscious and being able to have a glass of wine really made me feel almost normal.

 

Bringing my BFF - MOH was the best idea ever, she kept her eye out for things she knew I wouldn't like and made me laugh a lot which in the pictures looks real and genuwine because it was, I was having a blast!

 

I brough a black ostrich feather which was really fun just zoning out to the music and playing with it.

 

FI's tie... it's his favorite black tie and he wore it in our engagement photos and putting it on me made me feel really sexy and confident for whatever reason. You haven't seen any of those pictures with the tie because they were the steamy topless ones blush2.gif

 

The pro makeup and hair I had done... I also had individual fake eyelashes put on and I hardly recognized myself, I loved feeling that glam'd up, really got me in the mood of thinking I was sexy which showed in the pictures.

 

I brought everything with me and more in a suitcase, I was so happy I brought WAY too much stuff, I would have never known what I was feeling that day. It helped spreading everything out and looking at it next to each other, and bring lots of shoe options. I had 5 different outfits and shoes.

 

Figure out your style or poses and talk to your photog first or send pictures, helps stay on the same page.

 

Live in the moment, just do what you feel is sexy and don't doubt yourself, take risks, no one will see the pix you don't like anyways so it doesn't matter.

 

Can't wait for your shoot!

Pearls!!

 

I think a cute martini/cocktail glass would be kinda cute in some photos. Esp...if it has alcohol in it...calms you down and looks a little dirty in pictures...

 

And RELAX!!! It's not that bad...if it were you wouldn't be doing it. Enjoy the experience!!!!!!!!!

These sessions are so much fun. The biggest advice is to loosen up. So if that means, bringing your BFF with so that you guys can giggle, or drinking a glass of wine, just do it! I've had brides do shots before the session and it started at 10am!!!

Next, accessories! The veil and long necklace are great ideas. I've also had brides bring along footballs, helmets (motorcycle), fun pillows, etc.

Some other fun ideas are a karma sutra book, a "look" (such as a catholic school teacher with Brittany Spears short skirt, tied white belly shirt, glasses, a ruler, and a book), red lipstick to write on a mirror with (or kiss), and bubble bath.

omg the football idea is great - my FI and I are both huge huge football fanatics (soccor to you guys lol)....problem is, we support different teams!! maybe I could compromise on an England football top and a football??

thanks everyone for all the fantastic ideas so far - you are all majorly putting my worries at ease and the excitement is starting to kick in!!

oh and I emailed my BD photog and asked her for some advice so thought I'd share her response with you all too......

 

Outfits are really up to you, but I'd recommend lingerie, (Basques and corsets are generally more flattering than bra/knicker sets, but it all depend on the poses), stockings and suspenders, sexy nightwear, (silk nightdresses, silk wraps, teddies) plus accessories such as fishnets and seamed stockings, jewellery, high heels, long gloves etc. Some ladies like to go for a burlesque or vintage theme with fishnets, hats, a fan etc., or bring an evening dress to wear with stockings and heels. We can also do some covered topless and implied nudes if you would like, all very subtly posed and lit, although exactly how much flesh you choose to show will of course be entirely up to you! The more you bring the better, as we can go though and choose on the day.

 

She's been so great so far and I can't wait to meet her - she's totally voided all my worries I had (and that was quite a few!) I feel comfortable with her already!!

Here are 10 tips I found, because I think we ALL think about these things.

Ten Tips on How to Feel Relaxed & Sexy when being Photographed

 

1. Focus on Having Fun

Make your goal to have fun, not to get great shots - thatâ€s my job :) Everyone looks their best when theyâ€re genuinely having a great time.

 

2. Visualize

I know this is very Tony Robbins of me, but heâ€s not the only one who recognizes the power of visualization. Make it a practice to see the experience of having a great time, feeling sexy, everything going smoothly, seeing the photos and loving them. Be specific and visualize from your point of view, as if youâ€re in it.

 

3. Get Inspired

Look at movies and art for inspiration, tear pages out of magazines and begin to recognize your style and sensibility… what is sexy to you? This will help you communicate with your photographer and help guide the shoot.

 

4. Show Up With All Youâ€ve Got

When I say show up, I donâ€t mean to just show up. Bring it. And be open. Karen deserves all the credit for the success of her shoot, because she showed up, really stretched way outside her comfort zone and gave it all she had.

 

5. Be Sensual

Use your five senses during the shoot: play music, have a bite of chocolate, a sip of wine, put on a favorite scent, wear a kick-ass outfit you feel great in, and think of memories that make you blush, smile, and sweat… Do everything and (well, almost) anything that gets you hot.

 

6. Be Silly

Any shyness tends to go right out the window after the first few minutes or so of being silly. I am the biggest ham during a shoot, and I embarrass myself frequently (not always on purpose), but this serves me well as it usually puts everyone at ease. Just goof off and have fun! See how outrageous and silly you can be - itâ€s easier for the photographer to tone you down, rather than fire you up!

 

7. Create Movement

I often hear but I donâ€t know how to pose. Well thatâ€s good, letâ€s not do that! Create a little action, however, so thereâ€s energy in every shot. Câ€mon you all know how to flirt! If youâ€re on a shoot with me, I can show you some sexy moves (hey hey).

 

8. Remember the Context

The sheer fact that youâ€re in front of the camera being photographed is damn sexy… itâ€s powerful and vulnerable at the same time, which is an unbeatable combo - enjoy it!

 

9. Fake It

Iâ€m not telling you to fake the real deal, but if you donâ€t feel 100% confident and sexy while on a photo shoot, FAKE it. Works every time.

 

10. Be Yourself

Honor who you are, in this moment. Donâ€t wait to lose a few pounds. (Besides, Iâ€m a pro at retouching, and Photoshop is the best personal trainer in the world - more on that in another post!) But itâ€s important that you FEEL sexy, so if working out for a few weeks is going to do that, then great. But letâ€s not wait for all the planets to be aligned and your bangs to be the right length. The time is now. You are sexy and beautiful just as you are.
