Boudoir Photography Pose Ideas // St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Florida, Georgia Boudoir & Pinup Photographer

Its a good idea to flip through some men's magazines and clothing catalogs to get some ideas for posing. Not only is practicing your facial expressions in the mirror very important, but so is practicing those expressions with different poses and body languages.

Now, I know the images below are of super skinny supermodels who have very long torsos... and to be honest with you, these ladies have been enhanced in Photoshop. Magazine images never go to print without retouching and enhancing, so don't be intimidated by them. We are using these images solely for the poses and body language. So try arching your back and resting your arm over your head as seen below, and then tweak the pose until it looks right with your body type. Practice your facial expressions while holding the poses.

Remember, everything in boudoir photography is exaggerated, so the poses aren't meant to be super comfortable lol. And if you are still struggling, don't worry, we will work with you about poses for your body type at your session. Its just good to have a little practice ahead of time. :)

Florida Female Boudoir Photographer // Boudoir Photoshoot for Fiance, Wedding Gift

Makeup by Amanda Hopcraft

// Interview with the beautiful Miss K //

What inspired you to do a boudoir photoshoot and why did you choose Bad Girl Boudoir?
I was inspired to do a boudoir shoot because I was trying to figure out a good wedding present for my fiancé. I figured this would be a great gift to give on our wedding day. I chose Bad Girl Boudoir because I loved the photos I found on the website. I loved that it was a female staff and I was impressed by the quality of the product I saw online.

What were your feelings leading up to your session? 
I was very excited, but also a little nervous. I was hoping I would take great photos just like I had seen on the website.

Tell us about your experience with Bad Girl Boudoir.
It was a great experience! I was nervous at first but felt comfortable almost immediately. Amanda, the makeup artist, did a great job! She was very sweet and made me feel like one of her friends. I was so impressed with her that I asked her to do my wedding makeup. Lindsay was amazing. She made me feel extremely comfortable and showed me pictures as we went along so I could see how I was doing. She encouraged me and gave me tips. She helped me relax and have a great time! I would definitely recommend her if you are considering doing boudoir. I am so impressed with the way my pictures came out! I can't wait to give the book to my fiancé!

What was your favorite part of the whole experience?
The actual photo shoot was a lot of fun. But I really loved seeing the photos as we went along and really loved seeing the finished product! It was amazing to me how sexy the pictures came out! Lindsay does a great job! She is an amazing artist.

What's your advice for future clients looking to have a boudoir photoshoot?
I would, of course, recommend BGB to anyone looking for a boudoir shoot! I would tell any future client to relax and not to be nervous because the pictures are guaranteed to come out amazing! My sister is actually going next month!

Why are professional boudoir photographers so expensive?

If you ask yourself why Photographers "charge so much" for shooting... Well, they don't just snap pictures, they create professional, high quality photographs--art. You're not just paying for the actual photographs, you're also paying for time (and don't forget about the editing time after your shoot)expertise and quality.

Also, Pro photographers don't get paid vacation, they don't get paid sick days, they don't get bonuses for outstanding performances nor for Christmas. They don't have insurance plans nor do they qualify for unemployment. They sometimes sacrifice their family on special days so that they can bring happiness to others. Illness or personal affairs are not excuses for a bad shooting or staying home. So next time you think about the prices, remember that Photographers are Photographers because of the love of photography, but that love alone doesn't pay bills.

Bad Girl Boudoir's Shoe Closet Collection! // Sexy Heels for your Boudoir Photoshoot

Sexy high heels and pinup shoes available at your fingertips! Bad Girl Boudoir has a growing collection of hot shoes ideal for the boudoir or pinup photoshoot!

Don't have any sexy high heels? Feel free to use the list below to help plan out your outfits! We will have all of these shoes available for you to borrow at your photoshoot! We use these shoes exclusively for photoshoots only that way the shoes stay nice, clean and new looking! And the bottoms are clean too! No club floor goo... hehe

Also, keep in mind, since you won't be walking around in these (they are just for photo purposes), they don't necessarily need to be the correct size for you to use them. For example, if you normally wear a size 7, the size 8 shoes will still work and look right for the photoshoot.

Sexy Boudoir Photobook // The Perfect Sexy Gift!

BGB's premium, hard cover photobooks are hand crafted and printed on real photographic silver-halide paper with a lustre finish, bright saturated colors and excellent flash-tones. And the best part is that BGB’s layouts are completely customizable! I personally design each layout myself. In the photo below, you can see our top three most popular cover designs.

Left: The Pattern-style Cover (less conspicuous).
Middle: The Gift-style Cover (photo plus personalized message).
Right: The Photo-style Cover (more artistic and sensual, especially with a black and white photo).

The inside spreads are designed incorporating a variety of layout designs, some pages allowing for several photos framed with decorative patterns, while other pages can include one, large photo across the whole spread. The lay-flat design of the book allows for a virtually non-existent center gutter, which doesn't interfere with one photo printed across both pages.

Also, (in case there is any confusion with the different package's photobooks)... the upgraded, larger Peep Show Photobooks that are included in The Supermodel Package are designed with the same layout design approach. You can see some sample photos of the inside layout design on BGB's Gallery Page, click the Peep Show Photobooks & Products Button!
