5 Boudoir Props to Include in Your Shoot – St. Louis Boudoir Photography

Every boudoir shoot is unique, and one of the best ways to make your shoot your own is to include props. There are lots of different ways to feature props in your boudoir session to showcase your personality and add something special to your photos.

In this post, we'll share some of our favorite boudoir props to use in our photo sessions.

5 Boudoir Props to Include in Your Shoot

If you need some ideas of boudoir props you can include in your shoot, you're in luck. We have tons of suggestions based on years of experience!

1. Jackets, Sweaters, and Other Unique Clothing Pieces

Sprucing up your boudoir outfit — or replacing it entirely — with a denim jacket, cardigan, or other unique outerwear is the perfect way to add interest to your boudoir shoot.

Jackets also provide a lot of posing options that aren't feasible with other outfit choices. And if it's personalized with your name or other special details, all the better!

2. Sports Memorabilia

If you're a big sports fan, or want to give your boudoir album as a gift to someone else who has a favorite team, you can include props in a sports themed boudoir session.

Jerseys are a popular choice, of course, but you can also include a football, baseball bat, or any other sports paraphernalia you like.

3. Stunning Florals

Want your boudoir session to show off your womanly side? Flowers add a pop of color and texture to your photos while creating a distinctly feminine feel.

If you're into symbolism, you could also choose flowers with special meaning to include in your shoot.

4. Bridal Accessories

For bridal boudoir sessions, the available boudoir props are almost endless. Wear your veil, your wedding shoes, or any other accessories from your big day for a personal touch.

Or, recreate your getting ready photos with a bridal robe paired with gorgeous lingerie.

Another fun option is to incorporate your something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue for a sexy take on this old tradition.

5. Books, Instruments, or Other Items Related to Your Hobbies

Boudoir can definitely be about turning up the sex appeal and indulging your seductive side, but that's not all. Your photos are also a celebration of who you are on the inside.

Bringing your hobbies into your shoot is the perfect way to make sure your personality shines through. You could bring a favorite book or other accessories to accentuate your intellectual side.
