Another question for the bees 🙂
I’ve decided to try out DIY boudoir photography for my Fiance. A couple reasons: 1. I’m somewhat of a photographer, so I already know what to do with lighting & angles and such. 2. My Fiance has expressed that if I did, he would not want anyone to take pictures of me in lingerie. 😛
So I did my first mini photoshoot and it was quite fun lol but I’m wondering.. for those of you who have done this or are going to, how are you giving the pictures to your SO? In an album? And also, what does your SO do with the pictures? Keep them on their nightstand or something? lol
Thanks again Bees, I really do love this site and all the help it gives!

The photographer I’m talking with offers digital negatives and what she calls a 7×7 bedside book. Which I guess is just an album. Hope that helps a little.

I did a DIY boudoir with my SIL as the photographer and it turned out very well!
I made a 6×7 photobook from blacks. I uploaded the pictures, they printed them and put them in a book in 45min.
Currently, the book is sitting on his nightstand. I don’t know if he has looked at it since I gave it to him the night before the wedding… but I did it as much for as I did for him so I don’t really mind 😉

thanks that does help. I guess I’ll just make a photoalbum. Do you think snapfish would print something like that?
I liked the idea that I read earlier that a bourdoir session is also to remember how hot you were years later lol

We have a little black book with the pictures in it. I don’t think my husband has looked at them since the wedding though.

I did an album on mixbook.com and I’m gonna give it to him when I meet him at the airport when he lands from Switzerland. He only has a few hours layover then he goes to Vegas for his bach. party, hence me giving him the book then!

I took a heavy blue scrapbook paper and cut it into 5 x 6 squares with rounded corners. I then glued the photos onto a ivory shiny scrapbook paper as a border and arranged them on the blue paper. I then used a heart hole punch in the top left corner and used a pretty blue ribbon to hold them together. I used our own printer though so nothing left the house!
