I had my boudoir session on Saturday…Here is a link to the first one, my photographer wanted to use it on her FB page to promote a Boudoir special she’s having next weekend. I can’t get the picture to upload to WB, so I’m posting a link…I was so nervous about how they would come out, we all have our body issues, but I think this one is okay…What do you think???

I think it looks amazing and you look amazing…. and you are VERY brave to allow her to put that on facebook! lol. Not to be all mom-ish but are you ok with your employer or future potential employers seeing that? (that is always my baseline for if I should allow something of mine to be online).

@CorgiTales: She didn’t tag me, so no one viewing my FB page will have any way to get to it. Which is important also because it’s a surprise for Fiance…He is not friends with my photographer, so he won’t see it either.
Thanks everyone for your sweet comments! I REALLY appreciate it!!!

@bells: Thank you! FI doesn’t know, because he’s not “friends” with the photographer, and she didn’t “tag” me, so it’s not linked to me in any way that would reveal my identity. And I thought about it and decided that even though the photo is a little provocative because you can’t tell I’m wearing anything (I am!), it actually shows less of my body than a bikini, which I wear all the time when we’re hanging out with people at our pool, or when we go to the beach. I’ve become somewhat close to my photographer, and we are becoming good friends, so I wanted to help her out and she is trying to fill the last 2 slots for a boudoir thing next weekend, so I agreed to let her use it as long as I was kind of “anonymous.”
I definitely wouldn’t put it out there if anyone knew who I was!

You look gorgeous! I love the feel of it, there’s so much personality that comes through. I can see why your photographer wanted to use that photo. You’re brave for putting it out there! Just make sure that if it’s your wedding photographer, none of your friends decide to add her photography page on Facebook. I did that with my friends who were married this winter just to kind of mentally bookmark and check out their photographer.

What I learned regarding facebook is that people tend to find things somehow. Don’t use the mentality that no one will probably see it. It’s on a page where anyone and everyone has the potential to see it, so be prepared for that to happen.
Also, phototheft if a big problem on facebook, especially because the images are now downloadable by anyone. That image that someone takes a liking to can end up anywhere……..
Also, as people do here, someone can see that picture as an inspiration picture and share it on their page or on a forum post for people to see. You would be suprised where your images end up.

Just be forewarned that your picture is NOT on her profile where people have to be her friend to see the pictures. It is on her photography PAGE which anyone can go to and “Like” without having her approve it.
If you have “liked” her page, then others can see what pages you’ve “liked” and get to it, which means any of your friends, and even your Fiance could find your picture and identify you… And if you happen to mention at work the name of your photographer, your co-workers or even your employer might check out her public page and see you in your cowboy boots…
I understand wanting to help your friend, and I have to say you look gorgeous in the picture, but if it was me, I wouldn’t want it on her public page. The risk would be too high for me.

I love it! It is a beautiful picture of you! I just took my boudoir pictures a few weeks ago! I was so excited when I got them back!

Just to give you an idea of how VERY easy it is for anyone to take your picture and post it anywhere on the net….. Not only can they copy it and post it anywhere, they can modify it… For your protection, I hid your face and your body… And I’m not doing this to be mean or malicious–others might be though… I just want you to be VERY aware of what you’re doing by allowing her to put your picture on FB.
