Photographer Maria Ponce's first tip: "Find a photographer you're comfortable with. If it's not someone you know, schedule a meeting in advance, so he or she knows what you want from the shoot. Bring photos you like so the photographer can get a sense of the aesthetic you're going for (edgy, romantic, sweet, etc.) and talk about how much you want to expose. In my opinion, it's really not worth doing unless you're at least willing to show off your naked belly. Understand that it's artistic and not exploitative." However, there is a line, Maria says. "I draw the line at nipples. No way."
