For His Eyes Only

   By drodriguez  Apr 14, 2009

When on the hunt for a gift to give to a significant other many women are now turning to something a little more scandalous than a necktie or sweater.  The trend of giving boudoir photographs to a loved one to celebrate a special occasion is growing.  Women across the country are stepping in front of the camera to show their sexy side to mates.

A wedding website called recently reported on the growing boudoir trend, especially among new brides.  The boudoir photo has become a popular wedding day gift for the groom.  During the photo session women will either wear a sexy negligee or nothing at all.

For the modest at heart this may sound a lot more risqué than it actually is.  TheKnot describes the style of photography as “classic pinup-inspired pics” with “implied nudes”.  In other words, you’re covered in all the right places with poses often taken from the back or lying on your stomach.

If the idea of posing for these types of pictures makes you nervous TheKnot offers a couple tips to loosen you up for the shoot.  Bringing along a close girlfriend can liven up the atmosphere, plus you can rely on her for ideas or suggestions on what to wear and how to pose. Having a glass of champagne in the studio or hotel room may help to relax you before it’s time to give your sultriest pose.

It’s not difficult these days to find a photographer who specializes in this type of photography.  Wedding photographers have begun to offer the boudoir photo session as an addition to the wedding package.  They will even arrange for the photos to be bound into a mini album for the husband-to-be.

What do you think of the growing boudoir photo trend among new brides?

Is this something you might consider giving a loved one to celebrate a
special occasion?

I think it's great! There's something so sexy, yet private about those photos. I would definitely give them to my groom-to-be as a gift.

I like the idea and think it is becoming more popular not only because this is what women are looking for but maybe because of the sudden growth of activities that explore our sensual side. I would love to so something like this for my self. I think it would be a great femine experience. Not sure I would give the revealing pictures to a significant other though. Kinda afraid of where it would end up too.

I think it is great, the photos that are done even in the nude, are very discreet and professional, overall you are still covered, it is not going to be a playboy photo, so why not, and if you split up, and the photo goes on down the road, don't let it bother you, be proud of your body, and again it is a professional photo.

This is something that I want to do, but first I want to feel comfortable in my body before I can get the courage to do it.
