I have been trying to lose weight but was super aprehensive about this type of photo shoot because of self-esteem issues (Gained 35 lbs. on a medication this past year). However, I am now off the medication and have lost 6.4 lbs so far and feeling optimistic that I will kick off the extra pounds and am considering a boudior photo album for my FI as his wedding gift. Anyone else considering? What types of outfits are good for these things? Thanks ladies!

Yep I will be doing cheesecake (retro pinup shoot). I am really looking forward to making the trip with some of my girls for a weekend (we are all going to have shoots)

Congrats on loosing some weight!!
I did one for my FI, it was a lot of fun! I wore something black and then a little fancy bra and panies with garters.

I really want to do one. I want at least 12 different outfits so i can put together a calander for FI as a wedding gift. But, i just seem to book a date with a photographer and than i come down with the flu. It’s happened to me twice now. Makes me wonder if i will ever get it done before the wedding. It’s just 7 1/2 weeks away!

Mine is tomorrow – the nerves have just started to kick in.
I have some bra/panty sets, a garter outfit, and a see-through nightie. I’m also doing an off-shoulder sweater and a really tight tee with his college football team. I haven’t decided whether I’ll go topless (but covered with hands, blanket, etc.)
I’ve heard that these shoots can actually be great for your self-esteem. I’ll post again after my shoot tomorrow!

I plan to do one for a gift to DH for our first anniversary (pictures are paper, right?). I haven’t planned out outfits or anything yet though.

I did one at the end of Feb that I am planning to give him as a 1st anniversary gift. I brought a bunch of outfits and ended up wearing a bra and panty set, a football jersey, a see through nightie, a white tank top and boy shorts, a bustier/corset, and then I did some that were just in a black thong and some that were just in a pair of lacey boy shorts (all upper parts covered, of course 🙂 ). Bring more options that you think you’ll need, because it’s better to have too much than too little.

I would love to do one, but I need to lose weight first.

@DesireeAnne: Diito! Though I may not wait till I lose the weight.
FI has taken pictures of me in very risque poses and without much clothing, but I would like a professional set.

@milesbella: Can’t wait to hear how it goes! I have one scheduled in May for our upcoming 1 year anniversary. Let it loose, girl!

I want to do one with Angelica Glass so bad, it’s actually motivating me to lose weight. She does editorial level shoots, and it’s less kitshy and fun, but so sexy.
My FI would DIE.

@kaylee26: I just started working out again today. I’d be happy if I lost 10lbs. I just want to look somewhat decent for those sort of pictures.

Ty to all the wonderful ladies who posted. I realllyy want to work with the Boudoir Divas out of San Diego b/c I just love their work! The ultimate ‘supermodel’ package is $2600 which is my goal to myself once I hit my goal weight and lose 34 lbs. I’m presently stashing my lunch money as we speak! Haha!

I did! i didnt to the typical lingerie ones, though. i did mine on the beach, wrapped in a white sheet, which then got sandy and wet. so much fun!
all the girls in my little group has had them done as well. i went through sara france, but they all used capturing boudoir with erica and MAN they were HOT! they all had a stylist as well that did hair and makeup, props, lingerie, and then went to the shoot with them and did posing help and all that. I wish i had had stylist for my shoot, it would have been so much easier to pose!

I’m so, so so excited to do this. I know a lot of people think it’s stupid, but my boyfriend absolutely loves artistic sexy pictures. He’s always lusting after the Playboy Lingerie calendars, because he thinks they’re classy and sexy. So I’d love to look like the women in that! We’ve taken some pictures ourselves but I’d love some professional ones.
