Hey everyone 🙂
So right now in my area there’s a super awesome V-day discount on a 90-minute session (on a CD with rights plus the option of 5×7 prints or… something else, lol, I’d go with the prints) with a really amazing photographer for just $99 instead of the usual $450 rate she charges. Two of my best friends bought one and I’m considering it, too, but I’m a little… worried. I’m not at my ideal weight right now, and while I very much like my body and myself, I have a LONG way to go with my fitness and healthy lifestyle change to feel ready for something like that. On the other hand, my SO sounded SUPER excited about the idea and even offered to pay for it so I could join in.
Has anyone here that is/was at the time a size 16+ done a boudoir shoot? If so, or if you know of any photographers with plus-size gals in their galleries, can you post a few photos/link me? I think it’d just set my mind at ease if I could SEE the results other women with my body type have gotten.
I photograph pretty well, but I’m usually fully clothed haha.

Marking this; I’d like to see, too, because I’ve been thinking of a boudoir shoot.

I am a photographer, and I actually specialize in boudoir shoots and weddings… I haven’t had any friends or clients that are plus size (even though I have a few booked in the next couple months). I think ALL women are beautiful. Find a photographer you’re comfortable with, load up on lingerie you’re semi comfy in (corsets, teddies, ruffly undies?) and play up your favorite features. A good photographer will help you pose so you look your hottest. (:
Google “Plus size boudoir photography” to see some examples! Also, pick a photographer whose editing style you like. Some like to look airbrushed, some prefer natural…
Good luck! (:

I was looking for a full length shot, but I don’t have one on this computer… I’m a size 16, this is one of the boudoirs I had done. I’ll post a full length one for you when I find one 🙂

I SOOO want to do this… ugh so self concious of my body. My one breast is a whole size larger than the other. Ones a G and the others a DDD (currently waiting to see if insurance will cover a reduction) I would not feel comfortable flaunting my uneven breasts, large stomach, rolls, stretch marks. i cant even find lingerie that will fit my chest, if i do i have to stuff one side, even then noticeable…… thoughts?

@Mrs.Moser: Put on a white man’s botton down and sexy bra and panties under.The botton down will help hide a bit but the red panties and bra can peak out.

thats a good idea. I’m a size 14/16 once a size 6 sigh. my breast are no way at attention as they should be for a 24 year old from years of losing and gaining weight etc.
