Boudoir Poses

Recommended Posts

i dont have a pic but the 2 best poses that i love are where you are on a bed laying on your back, with your body bent at the hips so your legs go up the headboard, ankles crossed, wearing grat high heels. the photog is at the foot of the bed (capturing from behind your head).


also one with you laying on tummy with legs kicked up at knees and ankles crossed, with the angle of your side/bum, not from the front.

Boudoir seems like a lot of fun but I am too goofy for it (on top of not having the body). I will bust out laughing so hard at myself. BTW, Victoria Secret catalogs and some of the advertisements in fashion magazines can give you ideas too.

Chelsea, You look incredible. Well I had my BD session and it was super fun! I printed photos from all the websites you girls provided which helped me out alot. The photographer of course helped with with poses. She sent me one teaser photo and I loved it. I can't wait to see the rest. I will post soon.

i recently found a girl i went to high school with on facebook, and it turns out she's a photographer these days (in the los angeles area), and does boudoir!Christa Meola Pictures, Inc. Women


the following is from her blog ... thought it made sense to share it in this thread:


Ten Tips on How to Feel Relaxed & Sexy when being Photographed


1. Focus on Having Fun

Make your goal to have fun, not to get great shots - that’s my job :) Everyone looks their best when they’re genuinely having a great time.


2. Visualize

I know this is very Tony Robbins of me, but he’s not the only one who recognizes the power of visualization. Make it a practice to see the experience of having a great time, feeling sexy, everything going smoothly, seeing the photos and loving them. Be specific and visualize from your point of view, as if you’re in it.


3. Get Inspired

Look at movies and art for inspiration, tear pages out of magazines and begin to recognize your style and sensibility… what is sexy to you? This will help you communicate with your photographer and help guide the shoot.


4. Show Up With All You’ve Got

When I say show up, I don’t mean to just show up. Bring it. And be open. Karen deserves all the credit for the success of her shoot, because she showed up, really stretched way outside her comfort zone and gave it all she had.


5. Be Sensual

Use your five senses during the shoot: play music, have a bite of chocolate, a sip of wine, put on a favorite scent, wear a kick-ass outfit you feel great in, and think of memories that make you blush, smile, and sweat… Do everything and (well, almost) anything that gets you hot.


6. Be Silly

Any shyness tends to go right out the window after the first few minutes or so of being silly. I am the biggest ham during a shoot, and I embarrass myself frequently (not always on purpose), but this serves me well as it usually puts everyone at ease. Just goof off and have fun! See how outrageous and silly you can be - it’s easier for the photographer to tone you down, rather than fire you up!


7. Create Movement

I often hear but I don’t know how to pose. Well that’s good, let’s not do that! Create a little action, however, so there’s energy in every shot. C’mon you all know how to flirt! If you’re on a shoot with me, I can show you some sexy moves (hey hey).


8. Remember the Context

The sheer fact that you’re in front of the camera being photographed is damn sexy… it’s powerful and vulnerable at the same time, which is an unbeatable combo - enjoy it!


9. Fake It

I’m not telling you to fake the real deal, but if you don’t feel 100% confident and sexy while on a photo shoot, FAKE it. Works every time.


10. Be Yourself

Honor who you are, in this moment. Don’t wait to lose a few pounds. (Besides, I’m a pro at retouching, and Photoshop is the best personal trainer in the world - more on that in another post!) But it’s important that you FEEL sexy, so if working out for a few weeks is going to do that, then great. But let’s not wait for all the planets to be aligned and your bangs to be the right length. The time is now. You are sexy and beautiful just as you are.


Bonus Tip: And of course, add alcohol :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
