Has anyone ever had this done professionally? I am thinking of having this done and wasn't sure what to look for as far as a photographer. I mean, you can look at examples of their work for like a wedding, but the only examples I see on photographers websites look like they all are professional models.

I have a few friends who kind did it themselves, or a friend take the pics, but I was looking for something that is very professional looking.

Hi joann. (May I call you that?) Nice to meet you. The people here are awesome, so stick around and jump in anytime. Hey, will you fill in your profile so we can know something about you? Thanks a million.


There is a woman here (Liv) that did this for her husband not too long ago. She'll be around and will tell you more about it.

Welcome to the board, Joann. As BL said, Liv had this done professionally and was very satisfied with how it turned out. Hopefully she'll be by sometime and tell you more about it.

I'm Nenu, co-cl here along with Meme.

Hello Joann,


Im MEME I did some pics all on my own a year or so ago. I had my camera set up on a trip-pod, and a timer, I fixed up our bed really nice with pillows and few other things around me, I just took a 'ton' of pics of my self, wedded out the ones I didn't like and used photo-shop to make them look even better.


I had fun doing it! LOL! I then made a powerpoint show for DH and had it set up on the computer so when DH came home he would see the link and clicked on it. he still has it in his stuff. Of couse its password protected! LOL!


Im MEME welcome to SMS!

Hi there hackett.joann,


A little birdie (thanks BL) told me to hop over here to offer my input. I did this for my dh this past fall and he very much enjoyed it. (to day the least!!!) It was pricy but worth it. I know that others have had friends help but I took the professional photographer path. I do have to say she made me look like a real centerfold in every single picture. I even like looking at me!!


Let me see if I can link you to the threads I posted so you can read those and I would be happy to offer any other info if you need more.

Thanks for the links. Sounds like it was quite the event.

Do you have a link to the photographers website that you went to?

thanks,
jo

Yes she did tell us about it, but it was more like three years ago this coming January-February, because it was around the time I had arrived here on the board and wasn't yet a CL. Gasp! Yes, there was a time when I wasn't CL, ROFL! So it was before we met you, which is why you don't remember it.

Joel was co-cl at the time, even Michele wasn't CL then, and Meme did it for her DH as a Valentine's gift, if I recall correctly. She even showed one of the pics she did, a very discreet one, I might add. I wonder how long it would take to find that thread she put up on it.... too long, I suspect, she'd be able to do another photo shoot sooner, lol.
