Boudoir Photo Session

(note- the picture is not of me... just an example of a b-pic)
So, some friends of ours Matt & Aeriel were married back in October. She introduced the idea of B-pics to me! She was having them done as her wedding gift to Matt. I was a little hesitant to the idea at first, but quickly became a fan! I decided to give my photographer a chance to do them, since she never had.

I can honestly say it's one of the best things I have ever done!!!! If for no other reason, it makes you feel like more of a woman than ever! My wonderful hair/makeup artist, Elizabeth Tolley did an outstanding job! She fixed my hair and makeup for each different outfit. While I was going through hair/makeup my photographer, Ashley Stephenson (who did our e-pics, on the right of this page) brainstormed about ideas for poses. My lovely bridesmaid Sabrina came for "moral support" but ended up being my "artistic director" telling me to drop my elbow, turn my head, play with your necklace... ect. Elizabeth also brought her assistant, Brianna, she was awesome too!!!

Every once in a while, Ashley would show me the screen on the camera of a picture she'd taken.... I was shocked!! I never thought I could look like I belonged in a VS magazine!!!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to everyone who made yesterday possible! I cannot wait to get the pictures! :-)

I really love this new trend. I wish I had the guts to get some photos done. I think I would be laughing too much.
