Would You Ever Take Sexy Boudoir Pics?

I think you already know your tabby’s answer, WOW! 🙂


So…I’m totally undecided on this. If I can get back into bikini shape after Baby Girl is born, and only if the pics are taken with film and NOT a digital camera (too risky), and the pics are only for El Hub’s eyes, then I might consider it…but only if the pics are very high-end and tasteful, and I have a Heidi Klum-caliber lighting team (check out how they light her on Project Runway; it’s otherworldly).

Oh, and only if nobody ever knows about it (this is key).

Those are a lot of conditions, I know.

Then again, even if by some miracle I grow a set of six-pack abs and a perky bosom falls into my lap, I still probably wouldn’t do it, because — real talk — I have a really hard time acting all schmexy in front of the camera.

I have no idea how so many people do it on Instagram! Holy crap!

Unlike Tabs, I am not a natural when it comes to seductive posing, and I know this because when I tried to take some va-va-voom pics of myself for the MAC A Novel Romance collection last year, I could not stop laughing the whole time! — and that was with ME snapping the pics. Seriously, it took at least 30 frames, with most of them looking absolutely insane, to get a couple semi-decent pics.

This shot took FOREVER to get

I can’t even imagine how much harder it would be with a real photographer and various states of semi-undress in the mix. By the end of the session, that photographer would probably hate my guts, LOL! Yup, they’d be earning their money that day, that’s for sure.

Would you ever take sexy boudoir pics? DO TELL!

    I adore you 😀

    The great news about motherhood? It often tends to make women more comfortable in their own skin. 1) YOU’VE GROWN AN ENTIRE HUMAN BEING so, your body becomes damn respectable. 2) There’s the bonus of a little girl waiting for you in a few months who is going to need a strong model of self-esteem if she is going to make her way confidently into this world.

    Boudoir pics? Not for me. Confident in my own body? You better believe it 🙂

  2. You nailed that pic though! But yeah, I know what you mean, I can’t do it either. Whenever I see one of those super sexy IG shots I just start imagining the girl in the pic sitting there, trying out all these different angles and looks and acting all sexay for the camera in a bid to get that perfect boudoir shot, lol. I’d just feel silly doing it.

  3. I did before (back when I was 20) and they turned out way better than I thought they would, because it was so hard to keep from laughing.
    I would never have thought you´d have a hard time doing anything related to taking pictures, it always looks like it comes to you so easily!
    Now I will probably never again take that kind of pictures, but i somehow wish I would have done to have a reminder of my pre-baby body…

    I have some weight to lose right now, but I did when I was younger and had a model body. I still would, I take burlesque classes sometimes and it’s very fun and Body positive.

  5. Lindsay says:

    I would in a heartbeat! I love my body, and my hubby does too. Im not a size 0, or even a size 8, but I feel more beautiful now after a few pregnancies than I did in my teens. And I figure I’m young enough (27) to get away with it without feeling the least bit guilty.

  6. Jessica says:

    I would, if I had a reason to.

    LOVE that pic of Tabs, too funny!!

    Sure I’d take sexy pictures for the husband! I have, I’m sure I will again. It’s a fun time, especially when the husband is the photographer! I’m 40, I’ve been married for 19 years, I can totally take a sexy pic! Even after two kids and a couple extra pounds. The trick is to not take it so seriously, just relax and smile and have a good time! 😘

  8. Isis the Cat says:

    Dear Tabs,
    I have a crush on you.
    I will keep this boudoir picture forever.
    Let’s take a boudoir picture together!

    LMAO at Tabs!!!!

  10. Erin says:

    Yes, I would totally do it. If I felt more comfortable in my body I would. I’ve taken lingerie snaps for the husband before as we were separated for a year. I gained 30 pounds after a miscarriage. I had to take hormones for 6 months to stop the bleeding and wreaked havoc on my body so since then I’ve been pretty shy about my figure. I was heavy before and now it’s just too much for me to feel sexy on film I guess.

    My friend did a few years back and had me help with her makeup. I totally didn’t understand that boudoir pictures = sexy, racy “bedroom” pictures for the longest time!

    If I had Heidi Klum everything, I would not just take boudoir pix all the time, I’d walk around naked 24/7!

  12. Vanessa says:

    No, never.

    Honestly, the man and I spend all our at home time in our birthday suits.

    However, the risks are too much. For one thing, just consider I got hacked. Some people say you have nothing to be ashamed of, but unfortunately you see examples of how bad the harassment can be. For that reason, no, never.

    But yeah, you’re right. It’s so hard to “pose sexy” anyway hahaha

  13. Vanessa says:

    You should totally do it! If you ever need me, I’d be happy to glam you for it :). I’ve been on set for so many shoots like that, including shoots for non models, and it takes a few clicks of a camera before they relax. My friend Gregorio (that I post all the time on IG) is a total sweetheart and an absolute magician with lighting. You should embrace every bit of yourself after baby girl is born, you created life, and that is something to be proud of :)!

  14. MonicaP says:

    No, I’ve been married far too long for that .. lol.

    I do hope you’ll take some pregnancy pics .. a friend of mind did semi nude preg pics .. from the waist up and her arms covered her breasts .. really beautiful pictures of her first pregnancy.

    I photograph horribly, so I cringe at getting any kind of photos taken. I can’t pose worth crap. I’ve let hubby take some of me in lingerie, but I’ve never gotten any professional boudoir photos. Not photogenic + really fat…I probably wouldn’t unless I found a really stellar and eithical photographer. (I would die if I found my pics on some website making fun of fat chicks in lingerie.)

  16. Kwmechelle says:

    Oh gosh no, lol! Like you, I’d just die laughing. I’m so silly as it is & turn all shades of red just putting on a bathing suit. This is the most comfortable I’ve ever been in my skin. I go to the gym regularly & get compliments on my Michelle Obama-toned arms & nice build. But again, unless I’m at the gym, I wear t-shirts long enough to cover my bum when I’m out & about. Sometimes, attention can make me a bit shy & self conscious. Even when it’s good attention. Sexy pictures would make me pee in my pants laughing. Although I guess there wouldn’t be any pants 😉

  17. Kwmechelle says:

    P.S. This pic of Tabs has me ROTFL. Such a riot you two are!

  18. LorraLashes says:

    That pic of Tabs is priceless!!! I must get one of my kitty sexing it up..
    Anyway, I am a hair/make-up artist, I work with a boudoir photographer as the make-up artist. I love the whole idea of it, and they turn out so beautifully, but not me. I have been camera shy my whole life.

  19. Arianne says:

    I wouldn’t, because my sexy face ain’t sexy YO. LMAO. Seriously, Mr. Geekz just shakes his head when I try to pose sexy. Hahahaha.

  20. Holly says:

    I think I would for a wedding gift, if, ya know, I ever meet the right man & get married. I’m not a small person, partially genetic & partially because I loooove food & I’m lazy & I’ve struggled with self esteem issues my entire life. However, if someone loves me enough to want to spend the rest of his life with me, I think it would be quite empowering.

  21. tracey says:

    I personally in my current body state probably wouldn’t. As a photographer myself though I’ve done a couple boudoir shoots and the main things I’ve noticed is it doesn’t matter if you don’t think you’re sexy it’s the person that’s receiving the images option that does. If your husband ( or whoever) knows you’re goofy and probably laughed the whole time more likely he’ll cherish them more because you put in the effort even if you really only ended up with cute photos of you in lingerie haha. Oh and you have to feel comfortable ( nervous ok) with the photographer that is key too because if you don’t you should not be there that’s not the right one for you. Good boudior photographers know your not a model and are nervous so shold be understanding. But I also totally understand why it’s not for everyone.

  22. Gina says:

    I have but I did it in low light. I ended up looking sad and frustrated!!!!!

  23. Kim says:

    Not. A. Chance. It wouldn’t matter how good I looked, there would be absolutely no way. I don’t care for having my picture taken under regular circumstances so posing is really out of the question. And I really don’t think I could make a “sexy” face under any circumstances. I think some people are really photogenic and some are not (I am definitely not). HAHA! PS I’m not at all judgy about people who pull that off. Awesome for them, especially if it makes them feel good about themselves. 🙂
    PS It always reminds me of George Constanza and the couch pictures, probably because that’s how I’d look! HAHA!

  24. Pamela Haddad says:

    That would be a heck to the NO! But Tabs looks pretty good and extremely comfortable! He’s such a cutie!

  25. Bea says:

    No no no not me. Those style pics are up there with maternity earth mother belly portraits for me. No no no
