To Boudoir or Not to Boudoir

I have always wanted sexy boudoir photos taken of me; Not to give to a man but to have for me. I want photos that celebrate me and my curves. What a better way to do this than with photos.

Now, this is not a top priority for me. I need to save money for other things like say, milk and bread and the heating bill. But it is something I have had on my list for a long time.

While spending yet another day browsing great blogs on the Internet, I came across a website called One and Only Paris Photography. It features couples in their happy, private moments celebrating their engagements/weddings in Paris. I am in love with these photos! Not only is the photography gorgeous but it is PARIS!

I was in Paris in '97. And, like most things when you are younger, you don't appreciate it. I did not appreciate Paris the way I should have. I was involved with a man (boy) at the time who was not good for me and there I was in Paris consumed with him. What a fool I was! Quel dommage! But, Paris left a lasting impression on me and one day, I will go back.

The best part of One and Only Paris is they do Boudoir photography!

Ok. So. Lose some weight. Wax. Win Lotto. Fly to Paris.

This is doable, right?

"Quand il me prend dans les bras/Il me parle tout bas/Je vois la vie en rose
When he takes me in his arms/And speaks to me softly/I see the world through rose-colored glasses"
From La Vie en Rose - Edith Piaf

Totally doable! Scratch the win lotto tho..lol. Here in military town tons of the wives get those types of photos done. They are very tasteful. And why not? You only live once and our bodies are getting older by the day. Have something to look back on.

Ha I want to do that for my husband, but the lose the weight factor is keeping me, but one day!!!! I also love Paris and was there with a boy and did not enjoy it, maybe I should re consider!

Of course you should get some great photos done...what better reason than to do it for yourself.

That website was beautiful...I would KILL (maybe) for wedding/engagement photos like that.

I dream of Paris. I've never been and would give my left leg to go. Good for you for considering the boudoir photos! Do you have any close photographer friends? They could always do that for you for free.

Oh, and when you do all of that stuff, blog about it so I can live vicariously through you. Can you imagine winning the lotto?? A girl can dream!

I love how waxing is on your list!

You'd be surprised what's do-able if you focus on it; I'm with Adrianna though, ditch the lottery part.
I had some photos done for our first wedding anniversary. The (female) photographer was great and used awesome lighting to hide all my dodgy bits! The pics came out really well; I say go for it!

What a delightful blog! As for the photos, I say go for it! (And get back to Paris, at an age when you can fully appreciate it!)
