Confessional: I Wasn't Gonna Do It...

...but then I went and did it! Boudoir pics, that is. When I saw Danielle Biel of SkyeBlu Photography was offering a free session, the bargain shopper in me couldn't resist - so after some consideration, I volunteered, even though I do not by any means have a perfect body and it was a terrifying prospect for me. The session took place yesterday, and WOW!!!! It was AMAZING!!!! It was an incredibly happy, fun, liberating, confidence-giving adrenalaine rush of an experience. If any of you ladies are on the fence about doing it, I really encourage you to go for it. And I can't recommend Danielle enough - she knows exactly what she's doing and has an incredible eye. I got to watch another girl's session before my own, so I got a good sense of how she works and could really see how the minor adjustments and suggestions she made throughout the shoot made a huge difference. Once I get the digital proofs, I'll post one of the less revealing ones. Woo hoo! I'm still all pumped the next day!

aching...I wanna see pictures!!!! I'm glad you jumped at the chance to do it for free, especially w/ Skyeblu! I think their boudoir package starts at $900 regularly, yikes.

Yeah, I know, right? And in my economic world-view, $900 not spent is the same as $900 earned! =)

You look fabulous!!! Seriously this makes me want to do B-pics, but with the wedding only 2 months away I think I will wait and do them for the 1st anniversary.

Those are amazing!!
Chicbride..I think you should go for it. Who said being curvy was a bad thing? Curvy can definitely be very sexy!

Wow! I'm blushing over here. haha. I still haven't decided if I want to do these... decisions decisions. Maybe I'll just do it after we're married, since I'll be less broke! :)

Chic -- you should totally do them! Sexy knows no size!!

Thanks so much, ladies! Like I said before, if anyone is on the fence about doing boudoir, I really encourage you to do - more than just the pictures, it was a truly empowering experience. And it definitely doesn't have to be before the wedding - it would be a great birthday, anniversary, or V-day gift!

Geoffy - Hair and makeup was by a girl named Megan - I never caught her last name, but she's someone Danielle works with all the time for boudoir. She was great!

Kristin - For some reason, almost all of the photos from that part of the shoot turned out really good - there must be something flattering about that pose. And yeah, I think FI will think it's hot. ;)
