Set the mood for your at-home boudoir photoshoot

Setting the mood is vital for two main reasons.

  1. The photos will look AMAZING in a romantic or sexy atmosphere.
  2. You’ll find it easier to get yourself in the mood, making for better pictures.

Some simple ways to set the mood for a dark and romantic shot can include the following:

  • Dim the Lights
  • Light Some Candles
  • Play Some Sensual Music

But according to our photographer extraordinaire, Yahoska, if you really want to get some AMAZING shots, she suggests that you find a location near a window for the best photo results.

The larger, the better.

So, now that you’re ready to do this. Here is how to make it work.

First, make sure to clear the space in front of the window. If it’s outside the bedroom, lay some of your best blankets down or bring your mattress over to lay on top of.

Lastly, it’s also crucial to make sure you are relaxed.

Maybe you take a bath beforehand, maybe you light some incense, or maybe you have a glass or two of wine. (Need more ideas on how to relax your busy mind? Check out this blog post)

Whatever you need to help you feel relaxed and confident make sure to add that to your to-do list.

Find inspiration for your personal boudoir session

Even as a professional in taking photos, Yahozka can still find it hard to take sexy selfies. (Meet our team by clicking here).

“For Some reason, even though I have done this for years – when I get in front of the camera – I blank.”

So, what does she do to help get herself past this challenge?

She checks out her own boudoir Insta page and other photog faves to find the inspiration she needs.

Pinterest is also another great site for finding some SEXY and inspiring poses. And you can even create a board and save all of your preferred poses for a later date.

Photog, Christina suggests,

“Get a little spicy. Since these are specifically intended to get their blood going, it’s a good time to dabble into more provocative poses!”

This goes beyond finding poses, too. You can get inspired by locations, lighting, and outfits.

Use A tripod to take your boudoir photos

There is a reason why people hire a professional photographer.

Trying to take pictures by yourself and get a great shot can be really challenging.

That’s why a tripod can be a game-changer.

It will allow you to set up your camera at the perfect angle and distance.

Plus, it gives you the freedom to pose without worrying about holding the camera.

Some even let you use a remote control to take pictures without having to get up and touch your camera.

A tip about using a tripod or propping your phone.

If you’re in front of a window and the phone is directly in line with your body, you might see a silhouette.

Clean your camera lens and turn the camera to selfie mode so you can get a better view of what you’re doing.

You can also try propping a large mirror behind the phone.

Why you should use a tripod to take your boudoir photos

Wear your significant other’s favourite outfit for your photos

You may prefer to start with outfits that you feel most confident in.

But wearing your significant other’s favourite outfit can be a huge turn-on.

Not only will it make you feel sexy and confident, but it will also show your partner that you’re willing to go the extra mile to please them.

Whether it’s a sexy lingerie set or a simple t-shirt, wearing something that your partner loves will make them feel special and appreciated.

Not sure what to wear? You can always do a sheet or nothing at all!

Oh, and don’t forget to wear some makeup. It will make sure your face doesn’t get lost in the photos.

Highlight Their Favorite Part of Your Body

Chances are that your partner has a favourite body part they often pay extra attention to.

You probably feel a boost of confidence in that feature knowing it’s their fav.

Whether it’s your legs, your chest, or your backside, accentuating your best features can make your pictures even sexier.

So, make sure to include a SPICY photo that focuses on that body part.

If you aren’t sure what that is, ask them!

To make this part of your body stand out, you can try using different lighting or filters.

Also, an important reminder from Yakozka,

“The part closest to the camera will show up the biggest.”

So, keep that in mind when you’re angling your body toward the camera.
