Do: Research Your Photographer
Last time we checked, any respectable photographer will ask before posting your boudoir photos on their website. But the fear of having your private photos scattered over Google isn't the only reason you should ask for a portfolio. You also want to check out their style. Boudoir photography can range from very sexy to abstract and artistic. After seeing a portfolio, ask your photographer to walk you through a typical session. Your comfort and privacy should be a top priority.
Don't: Crash Diet
After you've made your appointment, there's no need to suddenly swear off carbs and sweets because you're having photos taken in your Skivvies. Remember -- these photos are just for two people; and we're betting your fiance will already be impressed just because you did them, which means the only person left is yourself. Rather than focusing on the parts of your body you don't like, concentrate on picking outfits that will play up the parts of your body you do like. And yes, that means if you love your eyes, tell the photographer you'd like lots of sultry retro-style close-ups on your face.
