Boudoir pics

Okay, kind of an awkward question...But I am considering doing b-pics for my groom's wedding present. I'm pretty conservative in general so it's a little out of my comfort zone, but a friend really encouraged me and said it would be fun and a great confident boost... so I am going to try it.I talked with my photographer and she said a lot of times girls bring props or something that belongs to their guy... etc for the pictures. I'm kinda at a loss...Anyone have any suggestions for props that would be good for the pics? What kind of 'props' did you use for yours? Anything that belonged to your guy?

    Does he play any instruments? Have any hobbies? Think of what he loves most (besides you) and think of how you can work that in.

    I just did my on Saturday and I'm so glad I did them! My FI is a CPA so in one I was in one of his button down shirts, tie and had his 10-key out, weird but he will love it! In another one since we are getting married in Las Vegas, I had cards and poker chips scattered all around me. I would have used his golf clubs but, he was using them while I was having these done!Good luck!

    If you are worried about doing full on boudoir shots, why not do pin up style, still cheeky and sexy but with a few more clothes, I just had some done and I love them, think 1940s war time pin up or 1950s styling cute & kitsch.General props for boudoir,Hat Football shirtsScarfknee high socksTeddy bearMedals/jewelleryFlagfeathersPin UpPolka dot bikiniStripey topshigh waisted shorts/trousersArmy/navy/airforce costume accessoriesglovesfascinatorleopard print dress/pencil skirt

    My DH is also a CPA.  :)  I wore glasses and one of his dress shirts with nothing under it in some of my shots.  The 10-key idea is hilarious!  But seriously, you can't go wrong with a men's dress shirt with nothing or little under it--what guy won't be turned on by that?One knottie brought in her FI's guitar, it looked really cool.  Does he play or watch any sports?  A jersey with his favorite team, you swinging one of his golf clubs or leaning on a baseball bat, you in a negligee and just a baseball hat, etc.

    Haha, I'm sorry, Underoos? Like the little boys underpants? Because I just got this mental picture of me trying to cram my healthy sized bootie into little-boy sized underwear and it was not at all sexy. hahahaThanks for all the ideas, ladies! He is a drummer and also plays a little guitar... so I am going to see if i can incorporate his instruments. I also like the idea of the men's dress shirt... I am also thinking long strands of pearls... (becuase I am SO a pearls kind of girl.)  think that will be really sexy and fun in a very ME kind of way. :)I think this will be fun. THANKS for your help and suggestions!

    I just got mine back and LOVED them! The 10-key was probably one of my favorites!I also had one where I was looking in the mirrior putting lip gloss on that was really cool too!
