i want to do one too for Fiance, i’m just planning on wearing something i know he likes and fingers crossed the photographer is genius with angles lol. i’m a uk size 18 so about a us 16 i think. but i would love to go all out and have a old style pin up shot, 1940’s i think the era is. although i would be nervous i know my fi would love the shots. 

there is a company i have heard of called for your eyes only. there an all women team who specialise in boudior photography, i’m hoping to book with them as they been reccomended by a friend.

Your photographer will most likely have experience shooting plus sized women, although this might be something you want to ask them about first. He/She should know how to pose you in flattering poses. I wouldn’t worry about wearing something “modest.” Don’t be afraid to show some skin, this is for him right? And he loves your naked body! 

 

I am a size 24 and I LOVE how mine came out! http://www.wallflowerstudios.net/galleries/ocrafton-minibook/

i wanted to do these pics too for my future hubby but im not to thrilled with my body size so i was uncomfortable thinking about someone i dont know seeing me so….i had a friend of 10yrs do mine at her house 😀 i loved them and so did he!! All u need is some sexy clothes he loves u to wear and BAM! im sure he’ll love them. oh and i used winkflash.com to print the pics and made my own album that way nobody at the one hour photo at my walmart would see them.(FH is in school for a machinist and he made me that necklace)

My friend got them done and said the photographer is really good at strategically placing bed sheets, getting flattering angles etc. I wouldn’t worry about it, I’m sure the photos will turn out great! Which guy wouldn’t LOVE them?!

Sports jerseys!! Especially if they’re longer, you’ll look sexy wearing just that, and you’ll be supporting his favorite teams!! ; )

Noone wants to see a 14 year old. If you’re not 3ft 2 and 67 pounds, you are a women, get over it!

 

Any good photographer should guide you into making photos you will be proud of. Don’t worry so much.

GO FOR IT!!  Honestly, it is the most empowering thing I’ve ever done.  I loved shopping for all of my sexy outfits and making up little white lies about what I was doing, where I was going, etc.  Most importantly, my hubby said it was the BEST gift he EVER received!

I would recommend that you purchase what you’re most comfy in.  Your photographer will certainly put you in poses that are most flattering AND he/she will feature the “parts” that your hubby likes best.  Wink

I would share a few of my fav’s, but you’ll have to settle for my profile pic (minus the cleavage).  My hubby is currently working on my laptop with all of the pics.

I have not had them done but definitely plan to!  We’re not getting married until Oct 2013, so I’ve got time! As a size 18/20, I’m slightly nervous about even thinking about it – but he loves my body so I’m gonna go for it!

One tip I did read somewhere is NOT to wear a bra TO the shoot!  They tend to dig in a little and can leave you with weird indents and/or lines on your body that whatever you choose to wear may not cover.

I was a 12/14 when I did a conceptual shoot with a photographer friend of mine, very similar to a boudior shoot. With a good photographer, and knowing how to move your body, you won’t need a ton of editing for the pics to look great.
