    Hi All,

    New to these forums, been a shopper on love honey on and off for a few years.

    My wife would like to have some professional glamour shots taken of her and I am wondering if anyone has any experience of this and any tips.

    Thanks All

    Hello!

    Well come to the party! (I want explain what happens at our parties just yet, it may only scare you off!)

    I guess it depends. Shots for your personal use or for one of the daily rags?

    If for personal use there are usually many photographers around that are happy to take them... For the papers, well that is super competitive!

    Hello

    Well, I have done tatseful nude pics for my OH at a photographers and I must say it has been one of the best choices I made ....

    I did them last Christmas, as I was struggling as for what to get him. He is really taken by my body (Not meaning to sound big headed) so I thought this would be great. However, I did have some reservations , as I am a curvey-bird and I already have a few hang ups aboout my body . I did my reasearch carefully and asked to look at a few samples of work different ohotgraphers had done in the past. When I found someone whos work impressed me and most importantly I felt comfortable with, I booked it. It was a bit daunting at first , I wasn't sure if I was supposed to walk in and strip or what was going to happen ! Lol. But we soon got going and the photographer was so complimentary and easy to work with, I soon found I was posing in a wide variety of positions (Some a little more tasteful than others ....) I looked through them with the photographer and picked out the ones I wanted.

    The pictures are displayed in our bedroom for 2 reasons .....

    1 > My OH loves them and is constantly looking at them, well, at least until I get home and he can "Have the real thing" as he says, lol.

    2> Because they have showen me (With some amazing techonolgical help ! ) I can look rather nice and it has helped me feel better about myself.

    That's just my experiance. Hope it helps somehow .....

    aww glad you had such a great time! id love to do a poper raunchy shoot id just find it so fun getting to show my man the pics afterwards! but got put off as i did a "suggested topless" shoot a while ago, i loved it and felt really confident until i showed them my partne at the time (my now ex) and he said he never wanted to see them again he hated them and basically made me sound like a slut who had taken all her clothes of for a random stranger in his basement which wasnt the case at all and it really put me off, but my new man is much more understanding and even travelled all the way to london for my latest shoot and even joined in! it gave me much more confidence and id love to do more with modelling! x

    I can perhaps understand why your ex wasn't happy with you being topless to somebody else but that's surely a strange reaction on his part. I mean who wouldn't want to see pictures of their other half like that? Oh well, just goes to show you that we all react differently I guess.

    Does seem a bit odd to me too... but unless it was a pressie for him maybe he was upset if he didn't know before hand.

    I think I'd be annoyed if one day Ad popped back with semi-nude pics and hadn't told me, if only for her safety and not discussing it.

    Everyone is different though and that fella seemed a little uptight...

    He reacted like that to those pictures? Ach well, silly guy and he's missing out by not having you as a partner I bet. Congratulations on winning the competition at the time with the pictures. :)

    Well, there goes your christmas present ;)

    Truth be told, I've always fancied getting some tastful nude photos done for our bedroom wall (or even faceless ones for the living room or something equally kinky :P)...when we have our own house to put them in though :)

    Not that old school, not like a *real* medieval dungeon in a castle... A kinky sex slave dungeon I mean with whips and chains...

    I don't *think* I could do a professional glamour shoot, I did a professional model-type one but I didn't like it, they put waaaaaaaaaaaaay to much make up on me. I don't normally wear any so to have litterally every inch of my face caked in make up was too much AND I looked orange. I felt uncomfortable from the make up and from being looked at and posed by a stranger.

    I love the pictures my OH takes of me though, because he makes me feel relaxed and happy I find it easy to be sexy because that's how he makes me feel!

    They are great, you can tell you are relaxed in your pictures.

    Thanking you! Someone said they thought I didn't know how to do sexy naturally and was just copying magazines or something. I just thought, sod off, I'll decide what is sexy for me and my partner!

    Sounds like a case of a bad photographer tbh! You should have someone who makes you feel comfortable and relaxed!

    The pictures DD takes of you (assuming they're his on your profile) are stunning!
