Boudoir Shoot!

The days leading up to my Boudoir shoot yesterday, I was excited!  But then yesterday came, and I'll be honest... a little fear began to creep in.

I was afraid I would hate every photo.  I was afraid that at the end of the shoot, I would hate my body.

I got there a little early and had my hair and makeup started.  The girl who did it was amazing and so nice.  We talked and she made me feel so comfortable.  I did curly hair and dramatic makeup.  It was fun to get all dolled up, I got the girl's number so that she can do my birthday hair and makeup!

The photo shoots themselves were a lot of fun.  Afterward I got to go through the photos and choose "Maybes" and "Nos" to narrow my choices.

I had 23 maybes!

Then I narrowed it to 9.  geez.... 

And finally got it down to 4.  I got 1 free edited photo, and chose to take the other 3 unedited so that I didn't have to pay crazy amounts for them.

I haven't decided yet if I will post them.  They're very tasteful and don't show much skin at all.  They'll be back in 3 weeks.  If it would offend any of you for me to post them, please let me know that!  I value your input and feedback!
