I need your help!

I have begged and pleaded sufficiently for Peter to agree to do a photoshoot with Jeanette … like an engagement thingy… We’ve been together so long, but we dont really have ANY photos of us together… disgusting really :(

I figured now is as good a time as ever – we will never be younger, probably never be thinner etc etc…

The help I need is what to wear/take/do… Jeanette did a great engagement shoot for Angel recently… but we don’t dance, or bake cupcakes…! I am worried we end up looking like “ritards”!! (not that I have EVER seen anyone Jeanette photographs looking silly!

Without disclosing too much top secret info ;) the shoot will be outside – with a fair amount of bundu-bashing I think! So… I will probably wear jeans and a sleeveless black top… And then, I have a long white cotton summer dress which I am hoping to wear… but we’ll see :)

I am clueless about ideas of extra things to take/do… *sigh*

I’m sure Jeanette will be great at getting us to look good :) … I do hope she can get a good shot or two of the #sparkly! :)

If you have any brilliant ideas or tips for me, PLEASE SHARE!!

    You don’t have to take props with you. It wouldn’t make sense for me and my husband… if it doesn’t for you… then just the 2 of you is just fine! Both your clothing options sound great… get Peter to wear jeans then.

    Take a look through these websites, they’re my fave wedding and engagement photo sites. Check out the engagement categories and you’ll see that props are NOT necessary! http://www.weddingchicks.com and http://www.rocknrollbride.com

    It’ll be a blast!! And you will NOT look like retards :)

    You don’t need any extras!
    I got the idea for the laptops from the way I met my sweetheart, and because I am known for my cupcakes they had to be in the pictures.

    I do love the “themed” engagement shoots featured by Rock ‘n Roll Bride, if you’d like to go and look there: http://www.rocknrollbride.com/category/engagement/

    You’re going to have so much fun!!

    Well, the beagles have to be involved, that’s a no-brainer! If you are bundu bashing, i think it will look really cool if you wear the dress, it will be an awesome contrast. I dont think you need any other props. :)

    thanks ladies :)

    so… no extras seems to be the way to go… thats cool :)

    @Heidi – as much as we love the beagles, they will be too much hassle to cart around with us :( I thought about it… but when we look at these pics in 20 years time, when the beagles are sniffing and hunting in beagle heaven, i think i will get sad :( and the pics are meant to be happy :)

    but i would like to do a “family shoot” with the 4 of us!! will have to see what Jeanette says about doing Doggy Family Portraits! hehe

    I had a look at Jannette’s work it is great and I don’t think you have anything
    to worry about. Perhaps you can search the web for a few poses with dogs / cars / bundu… to take along. Hope you guys will share some pics when they’re done.

    I think as long as you enjoy it, it will show!

    That’s a brilliant idea re the beagles!! Just bring them some water :)
    We can do some shots with them, and some without.
