I am thinking of doing it for my FH but I am so nervous. I’d love to know what other people’s experiences were. Are you generally modest, outgoing, body confident, or shy? Do you have a picture that isn’t too risque to share or any inspiration shots?
Any pros/cons of doing it?
What did you wear (or plan to wear)?

I did them and am so glad that I did! I’m not necessarily modest but I don’t dress super out there either. I have a friend who was starting out her photography business at the time and had really wanted to do a boudoir shoot with someone. I messaged her and she was super excited about it. We did it at her house. I brought a bunch of different options of lingerie, cute button up tops, my husbands favorite jacket. I also brought his guitair and took some pictures with it. I don’t have any pictures right now but I’ll share one when I get home later.
It made me feel really great about myself and my husband LOVES them!

I’m thinking of doing a boudoir shoot also. After seeing my engagement photos, I realized how stiff and nervous I was. I think this would loosen me up a bit to get more comfortable being photographed.

@Birdee106: That’s so great and I’d love to see what kind of style you went with..I’ll pm you my email address if you prefer to share that way.
@AmyFarrahFowler: When is the wedding?

I am incredibly shy, but I had a friend who is also a semi pro photographer doing a boudoir special too good to not take advantage of.
I think having a photographer you are comfortable with is the most important part. Also, having a drink prior!
I was nervous about getting mine done, but ended loving them. I hope my future hubby does too!

I just bought a session of boudoir photography today. The package was cheap and comes with one free printed picture (which I will choose myself), but I can pay extra for more pics if I like them. It’s my first time so I thought I’d just go for the ‘quickie’ package rather than the full album. If I like the experience (and if my Fiance loves the picture) I will probably do a full album at some point 🙂
I’m planning on wearing a basque with suspenders and tights, as I want the pictures to be suggestive but not too revealing. I particularly like black and white ones as they look more “artsy”. The idea is to give a framed picture to Fiance as a gift on his birthday in a couple of months, and hang the picture in our bedroom. I don’t think any visitors will see it, and even if they do I won’t care much because it’s not like I’ll be naked.
My Fiance won’t be expecting it and I think he’ll even be shocked, but I think he’ll come to love it 🙂 He always loves him when I send him naughty pics on the mobile phone anyway.
I’ve lost weight and therefore feel more body confident now, so I’m quite certain that the pictures will be nice 😀
