Eeee! I just found an amazing deal on GroupOn for Boudoir shoots (if you’re in the LA area it’s still going on for another day).
Looks like I’m 100% committed to the new diet/work out plan.
Anyone done one of these? Were you nervous, excited? When did you do your shoot and what did you do with your prints? What type of wardrobe did you go with? (Total kink or sweet and sensual?) Were you happy with the end images?
Thinking I’ll give mine to the Fi as a wedding gift… 🙂

I had thought about doing one of these for a Christmas gift for my SO too, but can’t afford the cost of them right now. Maybe I can figure out how to DIY one 🙂 Good luck with yours!! I bet it will be fun!!

Aaack. I’d love to do one, but I think I’m way too nervous/self-conscious. Good luck!!! That is an amazing deal.

Hmm..wow, a thread here too, and digging up old threads on the other board.
Review – Los Angeles Boudoir shoot
Something smells fishy.

@wanderer: What smells fishy? She found an old post about a photographer she just booked. You do realize that buffy has started a ton of different threads on a variety of topics, has been on the boards for over a year and has 3x as many posts as you? Doesn’t sound anything like a vendor to me (as you implied in the other thread) ……

When I see old threads I tend to lean toward
2. friend of vendor
3. “paid” by vendor
But to each their own I guess.

I have done these, for kind of a personal reason. I’m actually at…well, not my heaviest, but I gained quite a bit of weight and knew I couldn’t lose it all before my wedding. I was freaking out about taking wedding pictures so I figured if I could do boudoir shots, I could do wedding shots. I was really nervous, but in the end, it was a lot of fun and I actually liked some of my shots (I’ll be honest–some were like, “whoa, I need to get to a gym”) BUT others were totally like, “Is that MY butt? Seriously? I look hot!”
Anyway, the generally recommend that you bring a black lacy bra and panty set. The rest is up to you but I did a pair of white boyshorts (cause that’s what Darling Husband likes on me), one of his white button-downs, just jeans, and a white tank top that went iwth the black undies. Darling Husband doesn’t like a lot of bells and whistles lingerie-speaking so if I went all out with the stays and the crotchless panties and stuff it’d be weird for us both–so go with what YOU are most comfortable wearing and what you think your SO would like you in. However, I can say that in general a lot of women find a corset very flattering and those come in all sorts of styles from Western harlot camp to smooth and sophisticated.
I am giving prints to Darling Husband to keep, but I am keeping a few myself. And that one of my butt? I’m seriously framing it to go by my bed. ‘Tis a small thing, but it’s my own. Happy posing!
