I’m doing this with a group of friends for someone’s birthday party. It’s not a bridal party, but still a group of gal pals. I don’t think it’s disgusting, or stupid. It’s a fun way to spend time together, get a little pampered, and have pictures to remind me of youth a few decades down the line when I may be reminiscing. It’s a gift not only to the birthday girl, who loves being sexy and having fun, but to myself.

ETA: It’s not going to be girl-on-girl, bang-me-now photos. Just fun, casual, slightly flirty photos of us in nightwear. In whatever we want to wear, actually. Sexy means different things to different people, that’s important to remember when discussing boudoir photos in any situation.

@winstonchurchill:  That’s awesome, I think it could look really cool, super empowering. There’s definately a range in boudoir photos, it’s not all take-me-now kind of photos, mine I would be comfortable anyone seeing..In fact my avatar is from my shoot.

My photographer has ordered my book for me from this website I think http://www.artisanstate.com/little-black-book.html

 

It’s going to say MsChandler’s Little Black Book on the front

@GlamMeup:  

I think you should take the pictures with him and give them to him.  My shoot actually came with a leatherbound photo album, so I’m going to have my photographers take it to him to give to him before the wedding as his grooms gift…then I have a CD with all the rest of the pictures that aren’t in the photo album that I will give him after the wedding 🙂

group photos seem weird to me, not sure who the pictures are for.  I get that these types of photos seem to be on the pages of high fashion magazines, but I think of boudoir as intimate rather than “wanting to play model” for a day.

@sugarpea:  boudoir photos? Sure!

GROUP boudoir photos???? Noooo. No no no. So weird. This seems super gross and boundary crossing to me. I give my husband pictures of my friend in her underwear??? Wth. Not for me, I suppose.

@sugarpea:  My mind literally can’t even wrap around this..

First & foremost, why in the eff would I ever want my husband to see my bridesmaids in a sexual light? Super fricken awkward.

Secondly, why would I ever want to be taking sexual photos with other people, even if they are my best friends?

I feel like this just can’t be real life..

I know someone who did boudoir pics as part of her bachelorette…but not together! They got their makeup and hair done together, and then changed and had pictures individually. They also were mostly getting married or were recently married, so all used their INDIVIDUAL photos as gifts to their FI/DHs.

@sugarpea:  I never take a pic semi naked (unless we are on sand at a tropical place or beach) with my friends that’s really awkward. I like boudoir pics if done well but I think I would feel really weird during the session. I’ve thought about doing one for a gift to Fiance but I dint think I would know what to do with it….I don’t want to spend money on a photo session when it has to be tucked away bc it’s for my husband’s eyes only. I do like the idea of having the proof of how hot you once were when you’re like 85 though! Haha

As a group? To give to my future husband? No way! That’s strange.. A private one, sure, but not with my friends! But hey, to each his own lol
