Make a “SEXY mix CD”. All those songs that if you were at a club would turn on your inner sex goddess.

I can tell this is something I will have difficulty with. 

Personally for me I’m  just going to face the facts that I’m not sultry. I’m short and cute and that is totally fine because my guy finds overly sexual women scary.

So, be honest about what works for you. If you do well looking playful, then don’t try and pull off an awkward Megan Fo/Kim Kardashian sexy face.

Your photographer should be able to help with your facial expressions. They tells models when their faces look strange. That and I would also suggest perhaps looking at other photos with expressions you like and seeing if you can mimick that.

Some alcohol and sexy music might help. Or… think sexy thoughts! Think about your FH and think “This is all for you baby!” lol

Just relax, have a glass of wine before the photog gets there maybe? I actually like the sexy CD idea, too! The trick is to feel confident and that will exude in your photos. Your photog should be able to help you loosen up a bit and warn you if you’re looking awkward. The pressure is on them, not you, don’t be nervous! 🙂

This is embarassing to say, but in my head I was pretending I was dirty talking to my now Darling Husband. It made it easier for me.

bring a bottle of wine or your favorite drink and have a glass or two while getting your hair/makeup done

Have a glass of wine and relax. Turn up some empowering tunes. Remind yourself about what your fiance/husband loves about you. Sometimes you’ll feel like you look really dumb…but you’ll be totally surprised with how the pictures turn out. I remember lying on a bed thinking “how in the world is this sort of sexy??” but it was my very favorite of all the shots. 

Take a deep breath and be confident! It shows! And, it’s sexy!

Have confidence in your photographer… Relax. And yeah, maybe a glass of wine. ; )

Seriously though, it sounds like you have everything ready…No need to be nervous. You will warm up to the situation after a couple of frames with your photographer there to guide you and the session… Just try to relax. That makes for the best shots. 🙂 And have fun!!

Depending on the time of the day, remove your bra ahead of time to avoid lines or dents or anything like….and have fun. You are sexy, your man loves you and you will have a great time.
