J just looked at me when I said something about them.  I don’t think he cares for them much either.

I’ve been thinking about doing them, but I think if I asked my Fiance he would probably react similarly saying it would be awkward. But I bet if I just did them and surprised him, he would love it.

On a side note, my Mom got a boudoir shoot as a wedding gift in 1983 AND she got one of the pictures framed. It’s not small like an 8×10, it’s big and she has it hanging up in her bedroom. She’s wearing a robe, not naked or showing anything, and she looks GREAT. I love that she has it and she looked so good. And I love that she has the confidence to have it hanging in her room for anyone to see.

I wanted to add, so if people are afraid of their kids seeing them, it’s not weird unless you think it’s weird. I’m sure if my Mom had them hidden in an album that I stumbled upon, to her major embarrassment, then ya that would be weird. But she is very open and I’ve seen the picture my whole life so it was never weird

@NYCcaliBRIDE:Thank you for your story! Bodies aren’t shameful! Sex isn’t shameful! What could be less shameful than sex with your husband?

I am in FAVOR of doing a Boudoir photo shoot…either for your fi/hubby or just for YOU!!!  I just had my photo shoot today, which will be a 1st Anniversary gift for my husband in July (1st yr. = paper; which will be an album).  It was a lot of fun to have my makeup and hair done professionally and to select the outfits and jewelry I wore.  I am VERY eager to get the photos back because my photographer showed me many of them as she was shooting.  At one point I said to the photographer, “Wow!  Is that really me?  I never knew I could look so good!”.  As nervous as I was in the beginning, over time I loosened up and ended up having a BLAST!  I felt lovely, beautiful, classy, and sexy all at the same time!!  I recommend it to everyone…a great confidence builder!  Kiss

P.S. My hubby has NO idea that I did this.  However, he often says “I’d like naked pictures of you, baby” when I ask him what he’d like for gifts.  I think he’ll be SUPER surprised and delighted when he gets his little black book!

@med700:  I never really thought about that…but, I’m not too worried about it.  The photographer asked what type of “feel” I wanted for the boudoir shoot and I said “classy, yet sexy or cute and playful”.  I think that my family members will be impressed with how good the photographer made me look…I know I was pleased with what I saw today!

I have always thought that boudoir photos were more for the bride and her confidence, rather than to give to the groom. How about this, why not still do the photoshoot, but instead of lingerie, pose in a swimsuit or a really sexy dress? I have a friend whose boyfriend hated the thought of lingerie photos laying around for his friends to find, so instead, she found a nice swimsuit in her boyfriend’s favorite team colors and went the route of a Sport Illustrated model on a cover of a magazine. Her second set was a gogeous, yet sexy formal dress and she posed sensually. Her boyfriend, loved it!! And these photos can be displayed at any time around the house. 

(unfortunately, they broke up a year later)
