Define Your Boudoir Style with 3 Words

Not everyone knows what style of photography they want for their intimate photographs.

I use a helpful exercise to focus your vision for a boudoir session. I ask you to think of three words to describe how you want to feel about the photographs 1, 3 and 5 years now.

For instance, if your words are “Elegant,” “Romantic,” and “Timeless,” these guide both you and me towards the kind of poses, clothing, and mood to aim for during the shoot.

This clarity helps to achieve photos that are not just pictures, but stories told through imagery.

Elegant Posing

Elegant posing for intimate photographs is all about simplicity and grace. It’s less about bold sexual statements and more about the allure of the human form. To achieve this here are 3 things I’m always thinking about

You can see my starter boudoir poses in the blog post: Boudoir Posing 

Curves and Contours: I encourage poses that emphasise natural curves and lines of the body. A slight arch of the back or a gentle tilt of the head can convey a lot without being overt.

Facial Expressions: Soft, natural expressions tend to convey elegance. A serene look or a slight smile can be incredibly engaging and beautiful.

Hands and Feet: The placement of hands and feet can dramatically alter the tone of the pose. Looking relaxed and poised, rather than tense and stiff is key.

Final Thoughts

Creating elegant and intimate photographs requires a blend of the right posing, effective use of lighting, and a clear understanding of the style you are looking for.

By focusing on subtlety, you can produce images that are not only visually stunning but also deeply personal and evocative.

Boudoir photography at its best captures emotion and essence, turning intimate moments into timeless art.
