    OMG my shoot is tomorrow. . . and I haven't been nervous until now! My FI is out of town this week and so I have a great supply of jersies, shirts and hats of his so that should be fun. Thank you so much for all the tips!
    I think the most fun part about this is thinking of his face when he sees the book, his jaw will drop!! This is so unlike me, can't wait til its done!
    yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

      hey Katie,

      I always tell my clients to pack a big bag of everything! Bring everything that you think you look Awesome in. Then pack another bag with shoes, boots etc. Little things like pearls, bracelets, hair accessories etc always help too.

      Have fun!

        Soak it up...the nerves will last till you start but then they will just melt away! Enjoy it and channel your inner Top Model. Here's a link to a video my photographer recommended. I did a you tube search for posing tips...basic lesson:

        But Out
        Stomach In
        Boobs Out
        Shoulders Back
        Sexy Look - think about something hot!

        Swank Renaissance also has a lot of other tips and videos here to help you get ready!

        You'll rock it and enjoy every minute!

            Hey ladies!

            Mine is on April 25 and I think the veil is a cute idea, but does anyone have pics to post on how they used it in the photos?

                  Maria, just take a deep breath. I know it's really anxiety-producing leading up to it, but you really are going to have the best time!! And you'll look gorgeous! It's good you'll be so busy until then - less time to think about it & stress out. And don't worry about the break-out, that's what make-up & photoshop are for!!

                  Have a great time you sexy thang!

                      You ladies are all right!! I was nervous at first and then it was no problem at all! It goes so fast. I worked with Eliza Portrait Designs in Omaha, Nebraska and she was awesome, very professional and knew exactly what poses looked best. Oh, and she had champagne ready for me when I got there. She helped me pick out my outfits, I brought two bags worth of fun stuff. My advice. . .
                      1. Put on your outfits at home and practice posing. I know it sounds weird but it helped me know what to do and what poses looked good.
                      2. Bring lots of different outfits, shoes, jewelry. A lot of mixing and matching goes on and some outfits look better in different poses. Start with a less revealing outfit or your least favorite cuz those first photos will feel awkward
                      3. Think sexy and go for it. . . the photogs are very professional and its easy to feel comfortable around them after a few minutes. Just think about your end product and image what you want it to look like. I imagined my honey looking at the photos and though "what would he like to see?" Personally, I didn't want to hold back and regret it later
                      4. Have so much fun. You will probably do nothing like this ever again so live it up!!
                      bring music that pumps you up, have a glass of wine! I am so glad I did this
                      5. Last one. . . don't work out before, posing is HARD WORK. . . like Yoga!! I was so tired after three hours, some poses I was shaking due to muscle fatigue-haha

                      HAVE FUN!!
                      yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!
