I'm thinking about getting some boudoir pics taken for Dh. I want to do something with his army acu's or dress uniform, too.

He's officially been out of the army for 2 years, and I thought about getting them for a Veterans Day surprise.

Whatcha think ?????

Eta ( because I'm not rewriting this 15 times ) I was just planning on throwing in a couple of the uniform pics. I've got lingerie and the dress shirt and tie he wore for our wedding rehearsal dinner picked out as well.
As for adding the couple pics as a veteran's day surprise... He's been asking me to make him a shadow box with his awards/metals/etc for months now. I was planning on doing that and adding a special "for-your-eyes-only" envelope with the photos and card. That would be the ONLY reason I would be doing those pics.
I doubt he would consider it disrespectful at all. I can take the name, rank, and such off- then it would be the exact same thing I could go buy at the surplus store down the road :)

 Well all depends who does them and how they do them and what you wear that will make it either sexy or skanky, if they are done right they should look good. I dont know anything about the uniform situation whether the army find that appropriate or not.

I sooooo want to do this! Wish I had the money. I have the photographer picked out and everything. She's awesome but pricey.

I have a photographer friend who does them sometimes and the pics she takes always look amazing.

I've done them. They were not skanky at all. They were very tasteful.

I'm not sure about that. But they would be private viewing only! Not something that the army should ever see ;)

Would you be able to ask her if she's ever done something with military before??

I did they and had a ball my stbxh hated them and told me he couldn't believe I would do something like that ect and was super mean. But they turned out great and I liked being pampered. And they were not trashy.
