How To Incorporate Props Into Your Photoshoot
Boudoir photography is all about capturing the intimate, sensual side of a person in a beautiful way. And what better way to add an extra oomph to your boudoir photoshoot than by incorporating some props into the mix? Not only do props add some personality and flair to the photos, but they can also help highlight certain aspects of your personality and make the session more meaningful. So, let’s talk about how to kick your boudoir game up a notch with some saucy props!
First things first, think about what kind of vibe you want to convey in your photos. Are you going for a sultry, mysterious look? A playful, flirty vibe? Or maybe a more classic, vintage feel? Once you have a general idea of the mood you’re going for, you can start brainstorming some prop ideas.
One classic boudoir prop that instantly adds a touch of elegance and romance to any shot is a bouquet of flowers. Whether you go for a single rose, a bouquet of wildflowers, or a big ol’ bunch of roses, holding a bouquet can make you feel beautiful, feminine, and oh-so-sensual. Plus, flowers can be used to hide any parts of your body that you’re not entirely comfortable showing off, if that’s something you’re concerned about.
Another popular boudoir prop is a piece of lingerie that holds a special meaning to you. Maybe it’s the sexy set you wore on your wedding night, or a piece that you bought to channel your inner goddess. Whatever it is, wearing something that makes you feel confident and empowered can elevate your boudoir photos to a whole new level. And let’s be real, lingerie is always a good idea.
If you’re feeling a little more playful, props like oversized sunglasses, a feather boa, or a vintage hat can add a touch of whimsy and humor to your photos. Think about what makes you feel silly and carefree, and incorporate that into the shoot. After all, boudoir photography doesn’t have to be serious and sultry all the time!
And finally, one of the best ways to make your boudoir photoshoot more meaningful is by incorporating something personal into the session. Maybe it’s a necklace that holds sentimental value, a book that you love to read, or an object that reminds you of a special moment in your life,or a personal object of your significant other (such as a work shirt or a favorite sports jersey). Bringing something that has personal significance to you can help make the shoot feel less staged and more authentic.
At the end of the day, boudoir photography is all about celebrating your body, your sexuality, and your unique personality. So don’t be afraid to have fun, be playful, and incorporate some quirky and personal props into your next shoot. Who knows, you might end up with some stunning photos that perfectly capture your badass, beautiful self!
