Boudoir Poses

The 25 Best Boudoir Poses

Welcome to our celebration of the 25 Best Boudoir Poses from all around the globe!

 

Having a variety of poses to show your photography clients can drastically increase your sales… but if you find yourself going to the same poses over and over again, you aren’t alone. It can be easy to fall into a rut of being comfortable, rather than finding new poses that work well with certain body types and entice clients to buy bigger packages.

So it’s time for a little inspiration today! Let’s take a look at some awesome boudoir pictures ideas and inspiration you should consider for your next shoot!

…starting with a pose that works for just about everybody out there! This first one is an all-time favorite. It hides the tummy if that’s a problem area, enhances the breasts for some extra va-va-voom, and showcases pretty eyelashes and long flowing hair. I do a pose similar to this with almost every client!

Roger Mitchell of Motiontography

And let me end with two more of my own photos, since I love these poses too!

These two are from my studio, Molly Marie Photography!

This pose is nice for any size but also with it being shot from a higher vantage point, gives the woman a more slender look with the focus being more on her face, rather than her body:

And finally, this pose gives the woman dimension without making her look awkward.  It also shows her having fun and being confident. In our experiences, husbands and boyfriends consistently like smiling/laughing photos better than the more sexy/sultry facial expressions, so we love poses that include a little playfulness!
