In talking to women over the past decade of shooting Boudoir Photography, I’ve found that nothing strikes a chord of fear as the subject of posing. This is closely followed by wardrobe, but I covered that one here.
Look, I get it. But let’s face it, while some people do have a natural God given gracefulness and others do have experience in modeling, the majority of folks really don’t have a clue what to do with their bodies. Honestly, I believe that a lot of people spend so much time in their heads that they are often disconnected from their bodies. Therefore, the thought of getting in front of a camera in one’s skimpies on top of not having a clue what to do with one’s body can understandably feel terrifying.
But fear not, beauties! I have zero qualms with taking control and providing tons of direction during session. Truthfully, while I have trained myself through the ins and outs of posing, I seem to just have a natural inclination to see where and why body parts need to be placed just so. When choosing poses to create eye catching, beautiful imagery, I take many factors into consideration including wardrobe, body shape, skin tone, props, the available light, the final product and the overall feeling that my client wants to convey.
While I do encourage clients to scroll through Pinterest and look for poses that pique their interest and ultimately create excitement for their shoot, I am here to eliminate the stress of limb placement and facial expressions for the women I work with. And while some of my clients may feel like they are in a yoga class instead of a photo shoot at times, I know that everyone involved is wholeheartedly enjoying the process and that the final product will be absolutely ah-mazing. Every. Time.
