My husband and I have been married for 5 years and with all the birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions that we celebrate, I always have a hard time looking for the perfect gift for him. I wanted a gift that he would appreciate. I really thought about it and remembered one thing that I really wanted to do for him. For our 5th anniversary last October 17, I decided to muster the courage to give him boudoir pictures.
I learned about this concept of Boudoir pictures when I encountered Boudoir Le Blanc during the time I was pregnant with my daughter. This was my article during that time (Boudoir Le Blanc Review). In a country that is so traditional and conservative, even wives or moms shun the thought of giving sexy pictures to their husbands. Why are we so shy to give our partner something that they can treasure forever? Admittedly, the first time I got to know about this, I wasn’t prepared to have my photos taken “boudoir” style during that time. First of all, I was pregnant (although looking back, it would have been a good time to have the picture taken). But mostly, it was because I felt insecure. I wasn’t comfortable with the idea. I’m uncomfortable in front of a camera with all my clothes on, so I was super uncomfortable with the idea of me having my picture taken in sexy clothes and lingerie.
But the past year has taught me to love myself more — to love all the flabs and the cellulite that go with it. I built enough confidence (although I was still scared to death during the shoot) to do this. So, fast forward to late last year, I prepared a lot for this shoot, so that I would be able to give my hot husband ‘hot and sexy’ pictures of myself.
Working with Boudoir Le Blanc team was really great! They gave me pegs for the outfit that I was supposed to bring during the shoot. After which, I had fun shopping for those things with my sister Kinney of ManilaShopaholic.com. We then finally had our shoot early December 2014.
The make-up artist, Tina Joson, who I knew before this shoot (since I have worked with her for Manila Workshops), worked with her hair stylist to achieve that sexy look that I had to have for the shoot. Sisters, Heather (the stylist) and Tooney (the photographer) were there to work with us during the shoot. It was a fun shoot! I never felt so comfortable posing in a lingerie and in front of the camera! I was so surprised. They really made me feel like a model.
And after a month of email exchanges from the time they sent the contact prints, here are some (Sorry, guys! I can only show you some of the pictures! :P) The sexaaaah pictures are for my husband’s eyes only!
Haha! That’s about it! Oh, I have good news for the other ladies out there who would love to have their boudoir pictures taken. Boudoir Le Blanc is holding a Pre-Valentines Boudoir Marathon on January 24! And guess what, it’s only for Php 5000. This is a good deal, ladies!
