but I am in the process of booking a boudoir session with a great local photographer!
I say I must be nuts because this is not really my personality to want to have racy pictures taken of myself. I am also at a weight that I am not happy with right now.
That said, I am excited because I think the pictures will be something that my Fiance will love and enjoy being surprised by. Most importantly, I think the experience will help me become more at peace with my body and gain some confidence.
I am slightly terrified, but also excited to do these. The session will be booked for May, so this will be good motivation to get to the gym more, eat healthier and worked towards a healthier weight.
Ah, and I also want to call Fiance at work right now and tell him all about this, but I can’t! I am determined to keep all of this a secret 🙂
Anyone else thinking about/doing/has already done a boudoir session??

I love the boudoir session. I want to do one but I”m finding, at least in the Philadelphia area, they are quite $$$. It’s such a great way to feel sexy and knowing that you’re having them taken for your Fiance is a dirty little secret between me, myself and I! I think you should do it but try try try to NOT tell him. The surprise will be so worth it.

I actually am determined to do this too! I will book mine in April probably…maybe march. boudoir shoots dont have to be racy at all! they dont have to be naughty. you can have really adorable flirty shots and thats just as good!
But I really think you will enjoy it! Get your hair and makeup done, find an amazing lingerie outfit that YOU love! and just have fun!
I plan on doing what another bee did and I will be wearing my bolero that i will wear on my wedding day at the boudoir shoot with my lingerie.
Fun stuff like that make it so special!
Flaunt it girl! 😉

I love this post by Mrs. Sprinkle!
I think I am going to find a lingerie outfit that I love, steal one of fi’s button down shirts or jerseys and maybe even buy a vintage robe! My pics won’t be too naughty, it’s not my personality, but they will be playful:)
Also, I can afford to have boudoir photos done because I am participating in a boudoir marathon. I arranges with 4 other girls from my local knot board to organize a marathon. The photographer gave us all a $50 discount, will pay for the hotel room, threw in a $50 product credit because we set up a marathon. My session will be 1 hour.
StephinPA- A local photographer here (not the one I am using) often sets up boudoir marathons in NYC. You could contact her to see if you can participate in oen for a discounted rate. She is actually having one at the end of January in NYC! Leah Stafford: http://intimates.leahstaffordphotography.com/

I would love to do one! It’s not in the budget now but maybe for a 1st anniversary present… Photos are printed on paper after all! 😉
Have fun with it and I think you’re right that having the shoot booked will be VERY motivating! Even if it’s not though, your fiance will still think that you look AMAZING and will absolutely love them.

@jaylii: I’M using Leah!! She’s the best 🙂 I think it’s great you’re doing it, though. They will turn out beautifully, no matter your size. And definitely keep it a surprise. I’m dying to tell Fiance, but I know he’ll be sooo happy that I kept it from him.

I think it’s a great idea! I’m going to be doing it for my FI’s wedding gift. It’s going to be hard to keep it a secret though!
