keighorn:  I did a boudoir photoshoot for my husband! My photos turned out amazing! 

My suggestion – get your hair and makeup done professionally. Bring multiple outfits and ask for your photographer`s suggestion. They know what looks best in photos! 

And like Tyra always says – SMIZE! Keep thinking about your husband and all of the fun memories you have together. Real emotion plays through the camera!

keighorn:  I did one, and brought my best friend along … the fact that my best friend went with me made things go by smoothly because at first I was really nervous but she helped loosen me up by cracking jokes and making me smile genuinely for the camera. My biggest advice is relax and have fun, it will take a couple shots to relax in front of the camera but you will. Also have a pinterest board or photos saved of similar shots you’d like to show your photographer so they can have a good idea of what you want as an end result.

keighorn:  I’ve done it twice, with 2 different photographers. The first did not allow me to keep any of the digital photos (which I did not realize when originally getting them done)…so I had it done again so we could have B/W canvas prints hanging in our bedroom.  They both said the same thing… Women think men want to see a super sexy outfit like a bustier/corset & garters. But in reality, they want something simple.  

Its so true.  I did a couple photos the first time with the whole sexy outfit thing, and my now husband preferred the simple photos where I’m wearing nothing and am strategically posing so you don’t see any of my bits.  

The photographers don’t even pay attention to your nakedness.  It seems weird at first, but sometimes you are moving so fast between poses that you don’t even have time to realize you’re the only one wearing next to nothing (or nothing at all if you’re comfortable with that!)

I did a shoot like this, and made an album for my husband.  I had my maid of honor bring it to my husband the night before our wedding.  My photographer suggested I make a pinterest board of the types of photos I like so she had an idea of what poses etc to do.

keighorn:  In both my experiences, they don’t. They’re more concerned with asking you to move your arm, leg, or arch your back to get the shot then actually looking at you.  Then, during any breaks, they were so busy looking back at their photos in their camera or moving lights they weren’t even paying attention to me.  My first time, I kept trying to cover up and put a robe back on…then just gave it up. (I went full nude for a few of the shots each time). But, definately only undress to your level of comfort! 🙂   Good Luck!!
