Boudoir Photo Shoot

My hubby is 10 years older than I and to celebrate his 40th Birthday in January I decided to go for a Boudoir Photography Session.  I'd always admired these sorts of pictures in galleries but never thought that I would actually have the confidence to go through with it myself.  Especially after having had 2 children and having just turned 30 in November - which I'm still getting over!  Being a curvy lady I felt really self conscious so debated about it for a long time.

God, didn't half have to prepare for these photos!  I knew I was getting them done about 2 months in advance so was taking myself out running - like a the Duracell Bunny on a week night.  Not to mention my first ever waxing experience, the whole shebang - legs, underarms and bikini in one sitting - talk about pain!  

I arrived at the studio and I got my hair and make up done and was ready to meet the photographer who was called Mel.  Yeah, I thought Mel was a woman.. uh, how wrong was I.  A sudden wave of dread came over me, but you know what, he was completely professional and put me at ease.   I'm not saying the nerves disappeared - but I soon relaxed.

I wanted photographs that were subtle, some people I know like to be a little saucier but I liked things to be left to the imagination - if you know what I mean.  I think I got a total of 100 photos shown to me afterwards and I still cannot believe that some of them are actually me.  There were photos that were truly awful but I decided to keep them too,  I know when I look back at them when I turn 50 I will probably have a different perspective of them.  

I am quite proud of these photos so thought that I'd share a few of my favourites with my readers. These are completely clean I didn't include any boob shots here so don't worry - haha.

This is my favourite picture (above) - I just can't believe that it is me.

This one is lovely, it is completely clean but seductive at the same time. I love how Boudoir Photos can be so creative.

You may be wondering why I'm wearing a Star Wars T-shirt above?  Basically - my husband loves this shirt, he has had it for years.  I've tried throwing it out but he won't have it - I can't stand it.  I say to him, 'you're not a teenager now honey'.  So I thought it be funny to get some fun memory photos taken with me wearing before I do actually bin it. The Photographer asked if I wanted a pair of scissors and he'd photography me cutting it to shreds.  I'm not that cruel - I wouldn't have done that to him. .. as tempting the offer sounded.  


This photo is celebrating 2 jean sizes smaller since Christmas :-)



Thanks for reading.  I hope you enjoyed this post and if you are thinking about getting something like this done, I hope it has given you some inspiration. Have a good week.  x

    1. Aw thanks Chelsea, apparently the trick to make the legs look long in the photo is to get your bum as close to the wall as possible! Was a challenge lol

  10. WOW. You are stunning! I love how the photos are classy and show your personality. This is definitely something I'd do one day, but my fiance would not be happy if I had a male photographer!
