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.

      Thanks so much for this thread! I was clueless about what pics I wanted out of my BD session, until now:)
      Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning but how much love you build till the end.

        Your photographer should have the skill to pose you. You shouldn't have to worry about poses.

            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 :)
