she showed me one peak too and i was like “oooh, yay!” but thinking.. “oh oh, do i look fat??”  but i ended up looooving all mine and it was so hard to choose what i wanted in the book.  i feel way less nervous for my wedding pics now.  although we got our engagements done on sat and im so nervous to get them back because there were hurricane-like winds and we were shooting right on the hudson and i hope that the pics dont LOOK like i was dying with dirt blowing in my eyes!!

If you want to see my pics, PM me and i will give you the code.

Oh I know what you mean about your hair!  I didn’t do anything with mine and it’s a bit stringy in some pictures.  She might do some retouching to make it look fuller though.

As a photographer, my advice would be to get on the phone and tell the photographer than you are worried about it *now*.

If someone tells me in advance then I can incorporate their concerns into my workflow – by retouching or cropping pictures to get round the problem as I go along. If I have to go back over the pictures a second time to make alterations it takes way more time, and that is likely to cost more money.

I loved MOST of mine, there were a few that I noticed the things I’m self-conscious about, but I was wow-ed by the work that the photographer did to make the pictures artsy – some of them I hardly recognized myself in! In a good way! And Fiance LOVED all of them, even the ones I didn’t like! We’re always more critical of ourselves!

Here’s a money saving tip that may solve someone’s hair money issues: I went in to get my hair cut with my normal hairstylist the morning of my boudoir photos. I asked her to tease it a but and blow it out. It was great because I didn’t spend any more money than I would for my regular hair cut.

I did go ahead and splurge on makeup. I don’t get to see my boudoir photos until July. I think I may die waiting 🙂
