I’m a plus sized girl too and was afraid of doing the pics…but I did and I’m so glad I did because the husband LOVED them.  I had to get creative w/ my outfits because it was 2 months before the wedding and I was so broke.  So, I basically went with what I had.  I did do a “wet” white tshirt which was nice, because I didn’t feel like my flabby tummy was hanging out there.  My husband is in the military, so I stole one of his uniform top thingies and wore that with it haning open…it covered the “important” parts, but definitely left room for the imagination.  Another outfit I did was a dress I always wear to church.  Normally, to make it modest, I have to wear a cammi underneath it, but without the cammi, it shows some major cleavage.  The last outfit wasn’t really an outfit.  We couldn’t go on a honeymoon right away, so to make the apartment special, I redecorated it and made a new bedset.  I took the purple satin that I used to make the duvet and just draped it over me.  All in all, I was pleased with hos the pics turned out.  They were super sexy, according to my husband, but I still felt like the parts of my body I don’t like were strategically covered up. lol  As for poses, if the photographer is standing higher than you and looking down at you when they take a pic, that tends to be a flattering shot and makes you look slimmer.  But I did a variety of poses and surprisingly the ones I didn’t think I would like ended up being my favorite.

I’m also planning on having boudoir pics taken, but I’m going with my also-engaged bff. Alone, we would be terrified, but we figure being together would make us more comfortable and could create a fun atmosphere. AND we are really counting on each other to give much-needed compliments here and there. 🙂

One thing we refuse to compromise on is having a female photographer. I can’t imagine how uncomfortable I would be posing like that in front of a man, no matter how great his photos are!

I hadn’t thought about it, especially being plus size. I really like the sweater pose in crebre08 posts is super hot thought. 

In other news..I love Crystal Renn she is doing it for the “big girls”111

I’m gonna do a BD shoot.

I have a male photographer, but I’m bringing some friends with me so I won’t feel self-conscious!

I want to have these photos done but how do you “give” these things?…I am quite clueless and a bit nervous about someone seeing them- other than Mr. 06Wink

YUP! i have an appt in january, i can’t WAIT to give him the album on our wedding night!!!

@06anchored08 – My plan is to get the dvd of images they’re offering as part of my package and making 4×6 prints. I’m putting them in a simple album tied with a ribbon and giving the album on our wedding night. Keeping it simple, understated and sophisticated is the way to go!
