    Katie, I did the veil also for the white outfit and it was too cute.

    My best tip for a boudoir photoshoot is to get your makeup professionally done by either hiring a professional makeup artist or going to a department store and having it done at a Mac counter or something. I don't think that my pictures would have come out nearly as good if I did not have a professional artist.

    Finley, your photos are gorgeous. Did you see Jennifer? I recognize the beads and the bed.

    Here are some of my shots from jenerations photography:
    I swear a week ago I wasn't going to do this....but the more I see other people's pics I really want to do it. and then the FI said something today about having a pic of me in some sexy lingerie...so I do believe this will be a great idea. I just need to go to my kickboxing classes 4 times instead of 3 times a week. lol

    I just need to find some in NY that are not to expensive.
    DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. DO IT!!!!!! lol I feel empowered already and I haven't even done mine yet!!

    kamilla those are some hot shots, thanks for sharing.

    And I totally agree about the professional make up tip :) It really helps!

        Hi girls, I'm having my next BD shoot in a couple weeks, but I've been holding out on you all. :P Got my cd of pics from the one I had in Jan & figured I should share - it's only fair right? The shoot I had wasn't quite what I had in mind - they specialize more in pin-ups & I really want BD shots, but here's a few of them anyway.

          Karen!!!! Hooooooooooooooootttttttttttttt!!!! LOVE THEM! I really wanted to do pin-up photo shoot and I may even do another one just because I had so much fun on my first one.

          Thanks so much for sharing, you look amazing!!

            thanks!

            I had a great time doing it so I'd definitely recommend going for the pin-ups too! And you can go as glam or retro as you want. Mine weren't as pin-up-y as my friends - they had the real pin-up makeup (red lips & liquid liner), hair and outfits. One used fun props like a globe, glasses, & stack of books for a naughty teacher look and another had a phone cord wrapped around her leg w/ a 50's housewife look. It was so cute!
            I think it'll be nice to have the variety of shots in the book I give FI too.

              I'll post teasers when I get them.
              Hi Finleys7

              Glad too hear everything went well for you. I live in NJ, just wondering who you used and if it was affordable. Can you PM me the info and pricing? It would be a huge help. Thanks so much!

                  KittenHeart...what are you talking about...you are beautiful. And just an FYI - I'm not skinny...the photographer is just THAT good! =)

                  Jenise, it was Jen from Beautiful and Affordable Photography

                  I would email Jen about the pricing as I think 2010 have changed, but I booked in 2009. Also I had a few girlfriends as well, there was a total of 4 of us. Some photographers give a discount for a few girls rather than a single shoot. Whatever the price, she is TOTALLY worth it. Somewhere around $425 and $100 for makeup.

                    All you girls live in NY! I am soo amazed with your photos, And then i look at the location and its NY! ...wish it was Chicago.

                    Did you girls get Disks with your pics? I have found a new photographer but most don't want to include the disks. As a graphic design this is a deal breaker for me.
