I don’t consider myself to be “sexy”, I think I’m more like the “girl next door cute”. And I’m not photogenic. But I’ve been thinking about getting budior pics taken.
Any advice? Should I just skip them if I’m worried how they’ll turn out? Did anyone else feel the same way prior to having their done, or if you felt the same way did you just skip them alltogether?

You can do cute sexy ones! What are you and your Fiance into? Any sports? You could wear a team jersey with cute bra & undies! Or use props like a bat or basketball etc.

Honestly, I don’t consider myself sexy or photogenic either, but the boudoir session seemed to bring it out in me!
I would advise you to meet with your potential photographer(s) ahead of time and make sure you mesh with them/feel comfortable. Also ask about the level of instruction that they provide. My boudoir photographer provided very explicit instructions: from how to position my body to exactly what to do with my face..this was very helpful and exactly what I needed.
I would also say this is an opportunity to get outside of your “usual” and become that sexy girl that all of us have somewhere within us. And remember, this pictures are for your Fiance and he already thinks you’re sexy!

I would get them done anyway!!! No matter what I’m sure your Fiance would love them! Maybe invite a couple of gf’s to go with you I invited my wedding party b/c 4 of them are getting married within the next couple of years!

It doesn’t matter if your not sexy or photogenic, if you get a good photographer they can make you look however you want! I have found that around here in Chicago there are even some that will airbrush out stretchmarks and anything you think looks gross! That makes me personally feel a little more comfortable!

I agree, it’s not about whether or not if you are sexy or photogenic – it’s about you expressing your love and passion you have for your Fiance. Whatever theme or approach you take, I am positive he will love it. Go for it!

If you have a good photographer, I’ll bet they could use the ‘girl next door’ look and make it sexy…

Every time someone tells me “I’m not photogenic” I tell them “You just haven’t met the right photographer!” Look for a boudoir photographer whose photos appeal to you and feel like they “fit” and make sure that when you meet with them you tell them what kind of person you are and ask them for ideas on how to incorporate your personality into your shoot. Very few girls feel comfortable in their skivvies – for 90% of people, boudoir pics are totally out of the comfort zone, so don’t feel like you’re alone!

Every woman is sexy in her own way…and it seems to me that boudoir photography is all about finding that inner sexiness. If you find a photographer you’re comfortable enough with, I’m sure y’all can work together to figure out what works best for you! Good luck! I’m sure you’ll do great 🙂

Fiance is into guns and books. Guns may be a bit over-the-top to pose with, LOL. But he does love it when I wear my glasses instead of contacts (I hate myself in glasses, but whatever), I could play up the “sexy-librarian” fetish in a couple photos! 😉

I think boudoir pictures are an experience that is fun and rewarding for every woman. Every person is sexy and photogenic in their own way.
I really wanted to have them done, but had reservations because of my weight. I did have boudoir pictures taken and I am so happy with my experience and the way my pictures turned out. I did this initially as a gift for my Fiance, but it has turned out to a gift to myself as well.
