How do you pose for boudoir photos?
I know this is something that my clients are concerned about, “but do we have to know what to do when we get there I have never done this before!” And for me, the answer is, “no way!” Posing for boudoir photos doesn’t have to be hard.
I am here to tell you how to do all the posing, where to put your hands, where to look, how high to tip your chin up, when to breathe, how to bend your wrist, arch your back, when to pull the elbow back, etc.
Practice in the mirror!
There are so many poses you can try and play around with at home that might get you feeling a little silly but, trust – your boudoir photographer will make sure you look absolutely gorgeous in your poses.
No matter what size, shape, or otherwise. Boudoir is for ALL bodies.
1. Hands up in the air
This pose is really easy, sit back on your heels, arch your back slightly, raise your arm above your head and be very feminine with your hand placement.
2. Lying down looking up
This one can be a little tricky for people, so just know that if you can’t get the arch in your back – totally fine. You’ll still rock it, and with some variations, this shot is still amazing!
3. On all fours
Just like how it looks, come down on all fours, pop that booty by tilting your hips forward. Stretch all the way out to come down onto your forearms, put a hand in your hair, close your eyes softly- take a deep breath, and bam, gorgeous.
4. Simple Kneeling Pose
Sit down on your heels, and grab onto your bra straps – there are multiple variations to this pose, so you can really have fun capturing different angles and bodyscapes from this one simple pose.
5. Sit and bend against the wall
Just put your butt against the wall, bend at the waist, pull your shoulders back and look over your shoulder. Simple, and beautiful.
There are so many more poses that we can do, trust, I will guide you the entire time. You won’t have to worry if you look any type of way, because I will make sure you are looking and feeling your best. The most important part is being comfortable and having an amazing time.
So come with your positive attitude, and let’s get to work!
