Sexy Boudoir Session

Has anyone done a sexy boudoir session as a gift for their husbands?  I'm thinking about doing one, but I don't know if I'm comfortable being practically nude for someone other than my fiance!  Any advice?  I know he would love it!

    Ok girl, clue me in... what do you mean by boudoir session? Whos' going to be there other than your fiance?

    It's a surprise for my fiance, so he won't even be there.  It will be at a photographers studio.  And they do say to bring a friend and a bottle of champainge to help you be more comfortable.   The photos range anywhere from sexy undies/wedding night undies to nothing but boots.  It's really whatever you would want.

    I could not do it, but a lot of girls do and say they have a great experience.  I would ask on your local board too, this seems like something that would vary between photographers and some of your local girls could give you recs for photographers that made them feel really comfortable not awkward

    I totally did it!!!  and it was wonderful :)  I cannot wait until he sees it.  Trust me, I am not the type of girl that would normally do this, but I think that's what makes it so special!  It was totally professional, in a studio, and yes, I brought my sister with me.  I am having a hard time not telling me about it and I cannot wait to see his face the morning of our wedding.  That's when I am giving it to him, before we separate for the day :)

    I am doing it and I CAN'T WAIT!!!!! My photographer is amazing and he is a close friend of mine...pretty sure he is gay(not that its a problem) but that makes it more comfortable with me because I know that he isnt going to jip me...

    I think you should do it. If you would like to do it with my photographer I can give you his name and number, he's wonderful. Also i suggest taking a friend or doing it with another friend that may be getting married also!

    You could even come do it with me!

    I have thought about it, but IDK if I will.  I still have over a year so I can try to get in super awesome shape for it.

    I think many of the girls who do it- and the pics I have seen on here- have kick ass bodies, so they aren't afraid of gettin close to naked and having it photographed.

    A couple years ago, the girls on the boards were very liberal with sharing their boudoir photos, even full-figured girls.  If you have a good photographer and if you can let loose and act natural, you can get awesome b-pics with a less than perfect figure.  It was really encouraging to see some of those photos.

     i had my photo's done in columbus by Maria @ IQFoto. I did one of her marathons and it was great. My pictures turned out fantastic and it didnt cost me a ton. I paid $150 for the photo shoot then got to choose what prints, etc. i wanted. I ended up getting the cd of all my prints and making a book myself becasue i could choose between them.

    I'm actually doing that for a wedding gift to my fiancee :) I'm wearing attire that I feel comfortable in and that he would like..such as sexy lingerie, something sports related(since he graduated from Kansas and loves the Jayhawks), and a school girl outfit. I have a female photographer doing my shoot and dont think I will feel uncomfortable..just remember you are doing this for him and think of outfits and such that he will like :) Even maybe just a white sheet...let me know how it goes..good luck!

    I'm doing it through the roxygirls.com and its in Terre Haute, Indiana. She is doing a bedside book and 100 photos for $475. They also have a deal with a stylist to do hair and make-up for $50. They provide all different kinds of props and accessories such as some outfits, shoes, etc. Hope this helps, let me know if you need anymore info:)

    I did it myself, with a tripod and a self timing camera. I love how they turned out, I made a photobook on shutterfly.

    In south jersey there is Laney Lane Photography, a few girls I went to high school with had shots done, and they turned out amazing!  I almost didn't recognize some of them.
       I would love to do this, maybe even with him, just for us to keep. I don't think I would post them on the net though, what goes into cyberspace stays there forever,

    I did them a few weeks ago, and it was so fun!  I haven't seen them yet, but I'm super excited!  I did my session with Critsey Rowe of Coutureboudoir.com.  We did them in a cool hotel, and I think we did 5 or 6 outfit changes including lingerie and one of his football jerseys.  I had my hair and makeup done too. I personally didn't do any nude shots, but those can be done tastefully if you're comfortable with that.  I'm definitely planning on doing it again later this year.
