    I don’t think that I’d do them.

     

    HOWEVER,  I do a little bit of photography here and there and I’d like to do a shoot like this.  Seems like it would be fun, kinda do a pinup colorful type style.

    I’ll be honest, I think my images are pretty tasteful and everything of interest (haha) is covered in every photo. I know some boudoir pictures have the women without a top (but covered with her arms/hands) but I didn’t do anything like that. So with this in mind, while I wouldn’t intentionally show them to people, I wouldn’t be embarrassed if they leaked. I think the ones in a VS catalog are more suggestive than the majority of the ones I took.

    I’m going to do one!  I’m going to give him an album.  But I want to do it for myself as much as I want to do it for him, ha!  Photographer is a woman, I don’t think he would like it if I had a man as a photographer.

    i did it and loved it. I was really nervous at first but my photographer was a woman, and she made me comfortable rather quickly. My advice would be to start slowly. Does Fiance have a favorite team? Maybe do a shot or two in just panties and a jersey to get started and get comfy, thats what I did and it really helped me relax, it made it fun and I knew they were pics he would love. None of my pictures were distasteful and they aren’t anything I would be embarrassed about showing anyone, heck, i showed them to my mother

    @Cappugcino:  +1. I’m doing it for the same reason. I love your idea of an inspiration board motivating you to lose weight!! 🙂

    I did it, but my Fiance was the photographer both times. He isn’t a professional, but he thoroughly enjoyed it.

    @ProfessorGirl:  That’s crazy, isn’t that blackmail!?

    I will probably never do one unless Fiance is the photographer (in which case it would be very very very amateur LoL).  I just couldn’t feel comfortable or confident in front of other people like that, regardless of how well I know/trust/etc the photographer 🙁

    I did them for an anniversary with an exbf. His cousin was a hobby photography and wanted to take them for her portfolio. She had used me as a model for aproject before so I was super comfortable with her. I LOVED them. She did an amazing job. She didn’t charge me but I ended up paying her because I know she rented equipment and spent hours editing them! She earned it. We broke up and the book I ordered for him I gave to his cousin so I imagine it is now part of her portfolio. I don’t mind at all because they’re beautiful photos… And I have the disc now to look back at and dream my body still looked like that! Haha. I will DEFINITELY do it as a wedding day gift for my current bf when we get married!

    That was long winded… Short story long – YES!

    I wouldn’t because I’d be afraid someone else would see them. I’m also shy, so it’s not really my thing.

    @Brideonabudgetlauren:  Wow! I hope this doesn’t sound strange, but you have a really great body. So wish I looked like that, but my fiance always comments me so I guess he likes what he sees. lol. Stunning though. I think this would be fun, i will have to give it some thought.

    @turkey22:  Aw, thanks!  I think it helped to be laying down lol.  The wonders of doing Insanity!  I’m sure you are gorgeous!  I think boudoir is great for any body type!  I was really really hesitant about it but it ended up being a lot of fun! (of course I had to have a couple glasses of wine first!)

    I thought about it, but FH doesn’t like them so I’d have no one to give them to. Doesn’t seem worth it just so the CD can sit on my desk.
