I need to say right off the bat that I really struggled with hitting the publish button on this one.

When the ever-so-talented team of Ana B MakeUp and Alumbra Photography reached out to me to see if I would be interested in a fun little project (more on that later) I jumped at the chance. But as I began to do some research on their work I realized that gorgeous, classy boudoir shoots were their expertise and passion. My initial reaction was that I had to ask them if they would be open to doing one with me (I have always wanted to do it for the husband before the wedding as a gift but never built up the courage) …and they instantly said yes. In typical Lacey fashion I began to question my decision and eagerness to be so vulnerable in front of the camera. No big sunglasses to shield my sleepy eyes and no sequin skirt to distract you from my body insecurities.

Insecurities. We all have them. Yes even the girls who put themselves out there every day (AKA bloggers) to let you judge the way they look and what they wear. Mine you ask? My chest and my thighs. Both abnormally large for a girl my size and constantly the first things I look to camouflage in my outfit posts.

After gorgeous make up thanks to Ana, wrapping myself in one of my husbands work shirts, and a comfortable atmosphere with Susannah I took a deep breath and went for it. Well, here is a peek into my boudoir shoot. I, of course, saved most of them for husband and I to enjoy but I wanted to make sure that some of Ana and Susannah‘s gorgeous work was shared…
