So I’ve been toying with the idea of doing some boudoir photography for my dear FH. A couple problems-
1. There’s no way I’m getting all dolled up and rolling around pillows in front of ANYONE. That’s just not my thing. So, this is a diy project.
2. How the heck do I present these little gems? Go to Walgreens in disguise? Send them off to get them done online only to see them somewhere else in three years? On a password-protected flash drive? Is that less romantic?
I’m a bit of a perfectionist and have done a demo shoot already to play with lighting/poses, etc. as well as some editing and the pictures turned out really well if I may say so myself, albeit a bit racey.
Have any of you successfully presented a diy boudoir album to your SO? How did you do it? I’d love some pics, how-to’s, whatever I can get! Especially about how you gave the final product.

Hmm, I’m thinking of doing the same thing…
So, I think it depends on how racy they are. If they are not completely x-rated (lol), maybe use an online developer, like SnapFish or something. I would like to think that the pics would be secure. I don’t think I’d have the nerve to develop them locally, even if it was in a different part of town. I’d be blushing the whole time.
Okay, how about printing them at home on photo paper? Totally anonymous!

@MissPine: I mean…it’s not totally pornographic but I’d be mortified if these got into the wrong hands. lol Yeah, I don’t think I could go somewhere in real life with these pictures. I’d be banned or arrested! haha I’m in the process of buying a printer now, but for my budget, I don’t think the prints would be as high quality as if I were to get them developed professionally…Good luck with yours! Honestly it is very empowering to do. The hard part is keeping the secret since I’m currently living with my honey. haha
