Simple Boudoir Posing You Can Try at Home!
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 “ballerina-esque” with your hand placement.
2. Lying down, chin 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. The easiest way to accomplish this pose is by bringing your shoulder blades back like you’re trying to touch them together and tipping your chin up to the ceiling, taking a deep breath to slightly part the lips, and closing your eyes. Imagine you’re floating on a lazy river, basking in the sun. 😉
3. On all fours
Just like how it looks, come down on all fours, and 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 me, 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.
