I haven’t done one so no tips but I really want to! I’m scared about being shy as well… let us know how it goes! Will you be having a female or male photographer?

I haven’t done my shoot yet, but I did used to do some modeling a few years back so I hope these tips help. 

First thing I can tell you is the most important, and that is to relax and have fun with it!  If you need a drink to help you relax, by all means have one since that will help you to look less nervous in the pictures.  Just imagine the camera is your fiance and let it go!  A good photographer will be able to tell you how to pose to get you the best shots.  Oh, and if you want, practice your “sexy” face in front of the mirror so you know what it feels like to make it when you’re in front of the camera. 

Good luck!!

I had boudoir pictures taken. I am serious when I say have a glass of wine before your photoshoot! Guess that sounds bad, but I had a glass of wine while I was getting my hair and makeup done…it really helped me relax!

Also, I would bring fun accessories like jewelry and fun shoes. I love those details in my pictures.

Some of my favorite pictures are of my in one of my husbands’s button down shirts and me wrapped in a bed sheet. Something to keep in mind.

After my boudoir pictures were taken I got the CD of images from the photographer and had a 12 month calendar made on mypublisher. Surprised my husband with the pictures when we were on our honeymoon and he loved it!

Here’s a link to a couple of my boudoir pics: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-boudoir-pics

Good luck and have fun! 🙂

I had a friend photograph me (she’s an amateur photographer, but had assisted her photographer boyfriend on nude shots–mine weren’t nude, but the same techniques apply). 

While she was setting up, she had me change into my first outfit, and sit and have a glass of wine, so I could relax and get used to being in lingerie in front of someone who’s not my Darling Husband, without the immediate pressure of the camera on me. 

She told me that she could(and would) move and position me to look most flattering, but she couldn’t control the expression on my face, and I needed to relax and own it. 

So, have a glass (or two) of wine, get dressed while your photographer is setting up, so you can get comfortable in your own skin, and own it. I had a blast, once I was comfortable, and it was very liberating to do. 

Good luck!

If you are doing your own makeup, don’t overdo it, esp around the eyes.
