No I wouldn't. I'm super comfortable in my body, but I would never do anything with photos like that of myself, and would rather spend the money on other things.
But, if you want to do it, go for it. I'm not opposed to the idea in general, just for me.
When hubby was studying overseas and I was stuck here working. I did a glamour shoot with one lingerie shot. I sent it too him as a surprise. He loved it. This was 20 odd years ago. I couldn't do one now, even though I am more comfortable/confident in my own skin.
Why the hell not? I have seen some amazing 40s pin-up era ones that look amazing!
Just make sure you pick a photographer you like.
I don't think I would. I'm not really a sexy lingerie kinda gal.
If I was in great shape and a bit younger I'd maybe pose for some tasteful black & white shots though, but not in anything lacy or racy.
However, I can't stress enough choosing an experienced, superb photographer, especially when you don't have experience in front of the camera. If you aren't good with doing your own makeup, I'd also pay to have that done.
It's not something I would skimp on, because crap photos can really hit your confidence
I had a pinup shoot done last year and I loved it!! Was awesome fun, so would definitely do a boudoir shoot. I had a couple of semi nude shots done and there hanging in our room and we both love them!!
I did that for my first husband in my early 20s and well before any babies. I'd def need to get back into shape again before I'd consider doing it again.
@atomicmama - I'm not bad with doing my own make up... but I'd pay to get my make up and hair done. I think it would help to "get into character" for want of a better phrase. I've done things dancing on stage that I'd never have the courage to do normally. It's the costumes, hair and make up that help. So of course, I'd also need to go and buy new lingerie (the one thing on which DH doesn't care how much I spend!), and a couple of pairs of beautiful stilettos.
I think I would, as long as they could photoshop me to look the way I wanted to!
