All these sexy thangs going on chit chat 2nite naw what i'm sayin

I'm getting some done this week! So excited!

Wings jersey and thong (FI is a major fan and a hockey player). I tried and tried to find my ice skates but I think I left them in storage on the other side of the state. I think I will use one of his hockey sticks as a prop.
A pretty bridal set that is sort of more innocent looking
A really awesome pink corset bra with black thong, with black stripper heels
I modified one of my old belly dancing outfits to look really, really skanky. I will pose and do some dancing and see what pictures we get with that.

Anyone else doing this?

    I did! I gave DH the album on our wedding eve (to make sure he made it to the church!) And I have a photo acrylic block for his nightstand of one that's super sexy but not awful if my mother ever saw it.

    Dude-oir... Omg... I'm thinking about it and dying.. And it keeps trying to autocorrect "omg" to long.. And thats making my thoughts worse.

  • I've done two. One when I was single and my photographer friend wanted to build up her portfolio, and one as a lil wedding gift for DH. I think it's a lot of fun.

    I figure if anyone is looking through things on my nightstand than they deserve to be traumatized. We have a sexytimes box filled with sexytimes goodies under the bed though, so it would probably be out of danger.

    I want mine to be pretty tasteful. I won't be posing with my legs spread wide or anything like that! If I were doing that I would be making money off it.

    I had some done for his birthday a while ago. I felt incredibly silly, though. I picked a very good, very expensive photographer that did very editorial-style photos, fashion mag quality except for the subject, but I am not a graceful girl and it was hard work getting photos that didn't make me look totally ridiculous, I bet. He loves them. I kinda cringe. Still worth it though, I think.

    I just took mine. I ordered a little black book thingy for him. It will be his wedding present. I took them early so that I made sure I had them... I didn't want it to be one of those things where I say I will do it, and then get bogged down and end up forgetting about them.

    @larrygaga‌ your outfits sound really cute. I stole FI'S Captain America shirt and his 360 controller as my props.

    I don't know.  I'm generally pretty comfortable with my body but I don't know how I'd feel posing like that with a photographer that I am not familiar with.  And I like my wedding photographer but he's a dude.

    My very close friend does them, so she gave me a discount. She's seen me naked before because that's how our group is (changing in front of each other) so it's not super uncomfortable.

    But I would also feel really weird if it was a stranger. I know there are places that specialize in it and probably would know how to make you feel more comfortable. Bring a friend that makes you feel safer and some wine!

    We found one photo of my grandma which will scar for life, which convinced me not to do one. Plus FI wouldn't really be into it.

    PS, if anyone around Vancouver is looking, http://www.jenniferwilliams.com is who I used and she is really great. I loved her, and I wish I was more outgoing and less awkward, because I totally did not do her skills justice.

    Not planning on doing one.  I have a weird thing about random photos of me ending up where they shouldn't, which is why I've never sent DH naked photos.  And I trust him with them.  Maybe it's cos I teach.  What if somehow something like that got out and my students saw them.  But I'm paranoid about that kind of stuff.  

    My SIL did one for my brother and showed me.   She looked amazing and it turned out really well, so I'm sure he was happy.

    I was about to book one and then I got sick. I am glad that I hesitated because I would have been UBER depressed to get those photos back and see my body the way it was just weeks prior. 

     







  • Are you going to do one when you feel better Jells, or is it completely off the books?

    FI asked if he could take some on our wedding night.  I said I'd think about it as long as the electronic files live only on my computer.  I'm 100% comfortable with him having them, but 100% not comfortable with anyone else seeing them.

    I think it'd be cool, but I don't know that I'd ever do it.  I'd be a bit scared of them getting out and people seeing them. There's a photog here that does what she calls "creative" shoots, which are essentially boudoir shoots with more clothing, so like sexy poses but in a short cocktail dress or a sexy outfit rather than lingerie.

    I've debated taking some myself using my camera, but I don't have a tripod and it'd take a while to get set up, angles right, etc. with having to go back and forth from the camera to the bed or whatever and taking test shots.

    That convinces me even more to do it!!!! I am going for the more pin-up classic look, so my titties won't be all out and about. It probably won't be much worse than bikini pics on facebook. Not that I have a ton of those.

    Secretly, I would have loved to see my grandma in anything other than her grandma form. 

    I'm surprised how worried you guys are about the photos getting out!!! I actually just asked my friend if she deletes the photos or what after she gives them to me. How do you guys think they will get out to the public? 

    I'm not worried about it at all. I suppose the only way they would leak out into public is if someone is snooping in my room (which we have a hidden spot for sex things) or if the photographer leaks them (which I would make lots of money sueing).

    @larrygaga I really would like to do a sexy set of those for FI as well even though he's seen a lot of my photos already. I did some modelling a few years back and some of them were of lingerie. But it's such a great idea! Just make a secret album for him, don't keep it on computers or on the iCloud. It will be like those old fashion Playboy magazines he can hide under the mattress ;)

    EDT: I am just one half coffee deep.

    I DIYed mine. Called a friend over to work the camera, opened a bottle of wine, and did a few outfit changes.

    ETA: Printed them in a book via Target's online system. Hope whoever put it together enjoyed the pics, lol.

    My pictures were very classy. Yes there are pictures of my butt because I was wearing a thong but it's not poses like Miley twerking. I almost showed my mom my pictures. So if one got "leaked onto the internet"(Idk how we only did hardcopy form) then it wouldn't be a huge scandal. I'd show you a picture to show you what I mean, but.. OH interest! Hold on.

    PINTEREST! So, classy, not raunchy. All of my pictures were inspired by these here and I think I have every pose. The second one is what I have the acrylic photo black for DH of, but I'm looking at the camera with a sweet smile.

    I've thought about it, H would love it but I'm not sure I'm up for it - think it would be strange posing like that in front of a stranger although I do like the idea of pin up style.  A FB friend did them recently and even though she is a bit heavier like myself - the ones that she shared looked amazing, but she is a few states away so using her photographer would not be an option.

    My photographer was a stranger, but she made me feel really comfortable and told me how to pose. It wasn't awkward at all. (And I'm not the most confident feeling in lingerie!)

  • I'm not concerned at all about them getting out. There's nothing I'd be ashamed of anyone seeing. It wasn't a porno shoot, it's me in a chemise. NBD.

    My first one, like I said, was shot by a friend. I'm not normally the type who undresses in front of anyone (heck, I didn't go to high school so I've never even had to change/shower in a locker room full of girls) but she made me really comfortable. I realized "this is more than I usually wear at the beach" and just sort of put the lingerie aspect of it out of my mind. That made it much easier the second time around, which was with a stranger.

    I feel like I need to know more about this.  I already know you're smart, but were you also a baby genius? ;)

    I love the boudoir shots.  Still haven't decided 100% on doing them yet.  I would need a different photog.  I really like the guy who's doing my wedding and did our e-pics, but I think I'd prefer a woman for this type of shoot.

    It's totally off the books. It took me forever to be fully confident and now my body will never be the same. I am hoping to have some laser scar repair work done, but they'll always be there in some form.

    My wedding photographer (husband and wife team) did not do boudoir. I also don't think I'd want my wedding photographer to do my pictures. I chose a photographer who just did boudoir only. Find a photographer who specializes in boudoir. It won't be weird at all since that's what they do all the time.

    I won a bourdoir shoot at one of the bridal shows I attended.  I still haven't made an appointment, I don't know that I will because after doing some research on the company that I would have to do the shoot with their photography style just isn't really "me".  I like photos like the ones @sugargirl1019 posted, and the company that I won the photo shoot with is just more so "stripper heels"and such and that just really isn't me.  But it's free.... and I love to save money haha...My wedding photographer does them, but I just haven't decided whether I'm going to do it or not.
