An artistic and tasteful boudoir shoot is a combination of good photography style, a skilled photographer, and sexy boudoir photo poses. Boudoir can be many things, depending on how you approach it. It can be sexy, flirty, or beautiful – or a combination of all of these. A good boudoir photographer must be well versed in the best poses to master the desired style. Below is a list of the top boudoir photo poses incorporated into my sessions to create the most unique images!!!
1 – The Serpent
The Serpent is one of the sexiest poses when it comes to boudoir photography. As client lies on the bed like a serpent, the curves of her body are highlighted. And, the right outfit can take this pose to another level!
2 – The Hangover
This is another classic pose in a boudoir photo session. Its low difficulty level also makes it suitable for anyone. The client lies close to the edge of the bed with her hair hanging down. There are a few variations to this pose where the model’s head is hanging off the edge of the bed, or twisted to one side. The pose does not show the model’s face that much, but usually shows the contours of her face and body. This adds a sense of mystery!
3 – The Back Arch Of Pleasure
As the name implies, this particular pose shows the client arching her back as if reacting to a heightened sense of pleasure. She can arch her back while on the floor, on the bed, or standing with her back against the wall. Either way, this is an ultra-sensual pose that is a must in a boudoir photography session!
4 – The ‘I Woke Up Like This’ Pose
There’s just something so sexy about a woman with bedhead hair and an effortless look about her. That’s the premise behind this particular pose. It can depict a woman in bed with her messy hair and undone shirt, or a woman playing with the bed covers. There’s a sense of playfulness to this pose, too, which makes it just perfect for a boudoir shoot!
5 – The Flirt
There are several variations to this type of boudoir photo pose and it’s up to the client to choose what she’s most comfortable with. There are also several angles to explore with this particular pose. The photographer can shoot from the feet or over the shoulder. Depending on the specific flirty pose chosen and the angle of the camera, it can range from mildly hot to an extremely erotic shoot!
6 – Sexy Legs Pose
A woman’s legs are one of the sexiest features about her. The Sexy Legs pose showcases that! As the name suggests, her legs are propped up against a specific background, such as the headboard of a bed or against the wall while she’s lying on the floor. This pose can use the legs as the focal point. It creates lots of drama and sensuality.
7 – The Sensual Close Up
Sexy poses don’t just consist of shots of a woman’s body. Close-up details of her facial features are just as sensual when executed properly.
8 – The Butt Shot
If the client is comfortable with it, why not dare to do this particular shot? The type of lingerie worn for this pose can make the photo ultra-sexy!
9 – The ‘Getting Dressed’ Pose
This is another example of how mundane tasks can turn sensual when incorporated into a boudoir photography session. You can use the theme of getting dressed up in the morning for the session. It’s the perfect example of a sexy glam boudoir photo session.
10 – Flow Posing
This pose consists of capturing the client in a natural and fluid state of movement. The client can be positioned on a bed, sofa, or on the floor doing a series of poses that are captured in succession. You will be amazed at the results!
