@Miss Pez:  I did it and I LOVED it! It was so empowering. My photographer wasn’t a friend because I felt like that would be too awkward but it was someone I knew from high school and was friendly with back then so it wasn’t a complete stranger either. After the first photo I asked her if it was horrible and she showed to me to bring my confidence up a bit. 

I would suggest bringing alot a robe or at least a button up shirt to cover yourself up and that may make you more comfortable if you decide to do boudoir pics

Personally I am a boudoir photographer and trust me when I say I don’t go “looking” for bad body parts. It basically becomes a fun type session laughing around. All my girls have told me they’ve never felt any sexier in their lives up til that shoot and seeing the pictures. I LOVE getting the pictures ready for them knowing they look freaking gorgeous! I also dont just do skinny girls, I’ve had all sorts of body types and I’ve honestly thought they were all gorgeous. Personally I plan on having them done – am I scared? Hell yes! But if you pick a good photographer they should be able to relax you. As well they can play up your good parts and hide any insecurities you have. I say go for it.. I’m sure seeing the pictures after you will feel amazing!

*doing* the pictures is the furthest thing from sexy ever… getting the pictures is way sexy. At least in my experiences.

I’m totally doing it! I’m only going to be young and hot once-I WANT PROOF! lol

I get how you feel, though, OP, I am nervous about it….but I’m actually doing a “practice” session with one of my BM’s to help me feel more comfortable for the real thing. That might help?

Also, remember, you only have to wear as little as you feel comfortable with! I saw one that a bee posted and it was her in a men’s shirt…and dude it was totally sexy.

I don’t think it’s for everyone but I guess I am pretty open with my body. It’s not weird for me to do housework or walk the dog in shorts and a sports bra.

This could be a great way to up your comfort level though because I bet you’ll LOVE the final product!

If you want to do a boudoir session, do it!! Photographers are professionals and this is their job; I don’t think they go around judging their clients. I’d definitely suggest meeting any photographer you are interested in before the shoot so you have a chance to get to know them and see if you are comfortable.

If you are totally uncomfortable doing full lingerie, there are other options! You could wear sexy jammies that cover you up a bit or your guy’s t-shirt! Once you’re there taking photos, I’m sure you’ll be a lot less nervous!

Don’t worry, I’m also shy and I’m glad I did the photoshoot. It’s a good experience to do something out of your comfort zone.. My photographer was a guy and I haven’t met him until the day of the shoot, so I’m 99% scared.. lol. 

My advice is to trust your photographer. They do know what they’re doing. They will coach and teach you how to pose. If you’re not comfortable with the pose you can always tell him/her. There’s this one pose I couldn’t get, like laying on the chair while my head is down, so he changed it to something else.

As my photographer said to me:”It’s something that you don’t usually do everyday.” So enjoy the flow and have fun!  🙂

I wanted to get this done and asked my husband about it.

He thinks it is stupid and would rather me wear lingerie for him right there so he can grab me.

So now, I don’t want to get it done, because he will probably say I wasted my money. :-/
