Best Boudoir Poses for an Empowering Session

Let's take a look at some of our favorite empowering boudoir poses from the Beauty in Boudoir repertoire.

Side Lying

Boudoir as an art form is all about the female body, and lying on your side is the perfect way to showcase your curves. From the front or the back, this pose is all about capturing that classic feminine shape.

There are many variations to try with a side-lying pose, including different arm and leg placements, shots that include or hide your face, and plenty of opportunities to show off your professionally styled hair.

Side-lying is simple, sexy, and a great pose for first-time boudoir clients.

Kneeling provides a perfect opportunity to show off one of our favorite assets — your backside. You might consider including some sexy boudoir heels to turn up the heat even more.

Shot from the back, this pose highlights your booty, but it's also a chance to execute a sultry back arch.

Kneeling poses can be done on a bed, on the edge of a chair or couch, or on the floor.

Arms Overhead

If you're new to being in front of the camera, you might feel like you don't know what to do with your hands. Fortunately, posing with your arms over your head takes a lot of the guesswork out of the equation.

Posing with your arms up also gets them out of the way so the focus can be on your curves.

Posing With Boudoir Furniture

We love boudoir furniture and have tons of pieces in different styles for the boudoir sets at our studio. They provide lots of different options for confidence-building boudoir poses.

If you're feeling intimidated by your first boudoir shoot, having a large piece of furniture to pose on may help you feel less exposed. After a few warm up shots, you might find yourself becoming much more adventurous!

On the other end of the spectrum, a simple stool gives you something to pose with that doesn't dominate the photo as much.
