    Hello there ladies,

    I've got my much anticipated photo shoot on Saturday and was hoping for some fabulous tips/tricks for how to look and feel my best....!

    The feeling good part will hopefully be accellerated with the champagne and wine I'm bringing for myself!

    I am getting airbrushed spray tanned today after work and have been working out like a mad woman; I also am having hair and makeup done at a salon before the shoot...so that should help with the looking good part as well.

    Are there any tips those of you who have had the pics done before can suggest? I want to make sure I'm totally prepared and ready to roll! Thanks gals! Wish me luck....Iv'e been so excited for these pictures!

        I didn't do them but my generic advice is to pretend you're doing a show for Andy...lol I think most of us have another level of sultry that our lover brings out so keep that in mind as you take those hot shots!! Or buy a few xxx magazines for inspiration. Have fun with it :o)

            Well, let me tell you some things NOT to do...from experience...that should help you out!

            1. Don't participate in any dangerous sports/activities. I wrapped my snowmobile around a tree a couple days before my BD shoot and had a huge black bruise on my knee.

            2. Don't eat pizza the night before, even if your FI really wants you to. No surprise, you WILL feel nasty and bloated! lol

            3. Don't worry about feel self-conscious. As long as you have a good photographer, you'll be running around naked in no time!

            4. Don't drink wine or champagne if you flush easily. This was one thing I did manage to behave myself and NOT do!

            But seriously, you will have fun. Just relax, breathe, and when you are looking at the camera, look at it like it's Andy...Leigh told me to do that and it really helped.

            Oh yeah and the #1 DON'T

            DON'T make your BDW girls wait forever for a teaser...we want all details ASAP! lol

              lol, those are some pretty good "don'ts" Sarah! I don't really have any do's or don'ts. Just try to make yourself comfortable. It sounds kinda weird since you'll be the only nudy one in the room, but (I think) if you feel uncomfortable (too anxious, nervous etc), it'll show in your pictures. So just relax, and trust your photographer. And omg, girl, HAVE FUN! How many times in your life are you going to do this? Enjoy it!

                Gosh those are great "Dont's"....I didn't think about the flushing.....good point! I do get a little pink cheeked! I have been trying to avoid my normal running into walls and being overall clumzy so I don't have bruises all over...however I bruise like a dang peach...so who knows what will show up by Sat!

                Thanks ladies...these are great tips.
