So awhile back i promised to talk about the boudoir shoot i did with kaysha weiner at the retro ranch for my husband, justin! Kaysha ran the idea past me and at first i was a little unsure because well… you’re practically naked in front of a camera and we all know there’s angles that no one needs to see! Yet, after some thought i decided to go for it with the help of kevin, mckenna and jill (owner of the retro ranch and now bff!). They helped me with outfit changes and of course had bubbly in hand at all times! It was by far the funnest day i have ever had. You literally feel like a model for a day! Every part of you that you’re self-conscience of goes out the window and you just. Have. Fun! All the mean while you’re thinking about what your future husband loves and trying to involve that in some way. Justin loves mint and chip ice-cream so we got a gallon of it and went crazy! Shoot you even get an ab workout because of all the laughing you do during the shoot! I would highly suggest bringing someone that makes you laugh!!
Other things i suggest!
— a great photographer! You want to use someone that has done it before and has good reviews!
— doing the shoot in your bedroom or somewhere that you and the hubs may go together. I wanted to do mine at the retro ranch because that’s where we were getting married. Not to mention the ranch is just too amazing not to!
— involve what your husband loves (sports, harley, career, food – whatever!)
— have champagne available!
— bring a close girlfriend or entourage like i did!
— spoil yourself by getting your makeup and hair done.
— if you don’t own a lot of lingerie do the shoot after you have a bridal shower so you don’t have to buy it all!
— let loose, you’re husband will love it!
