Are you growing your Boudoir Photography studio? Choosing furniture that you can effortlessly pose on is hard!

Furniture is expensive!  But having a few key pieces in your Boudoir studio will really help maximize you space without breaking your budget.  I recommend checking out secondhand shops or online classifieds before you go into any furniture stores. (You never know what you might find)!

A bed with a headboard and footboard: This is a must-have item for your Boudoir studio, and I definitely suggest investing in a headboard and footboard with your bed.  The are so much more versatile than just the bed alone.

A few tips:

  • Having the bed elevated on the footboard allows you to use the footboard in posing.
  • Show off long hair by posing them with their hair over the side of the bed.
  • Having your bed off the ground will save your back!  Bending over people constantly to get the shot is hard on your body.
  • You can use the headboard to help your clients sit up straight, thus ensuring good posture in seated poses.
  • You can also headboard to rest the model’s hands/arms on in posing for bum shots.
  • Feet up on the headboard makes for a classic pose!

A chair with arms:  So useful for posing clients in reclining positions!

A chair without arms:  Can do some dramatic angular posing and fun bum shots!

A couch with arms is also a great option! Here are a few examples of different poses:

A few tips:

  • Couches are perfect for elegant sitting, reclining, and (my personal favourite) “mermaid” poses!
  • They can also be used for a bum shot that always sells at my studio (see examples above).
  • Keeping your furniture on felt pads or wheels will ensure you get the most out of what you buy because you can move it around to suit the space, and pull some pieces in for some shots and move other pieces out for other shots.

This was Bella L’s second boudoir session in our studio, and it was so great to work with her on her shoot. 

She is a perfect reminder that age is just a number, and beauty is timeless.  She came from out of town so we did a preview session the same day as the shoot, which was really neat for us both.

Here’s a little bit about her experience in her own words:

In your own words why did you want to do a session with Bella Boudoir?

“This is the second shoot I’ve done, I did one two years ago and I remember when I first looked at the photos, I was blown away. Like a lot of women I have had body issues my entire life. Seeing my images truly changed my perception of my body. I now wear bikinis on vacation with confidence, I don’t stress as much as I used to when picking out an outfit to wear, etc.

This shoot was a celebration of my 50th birthday and I still feel the same way about myself as I did when I had my first one. Thank you Bella Boudoir for giving me my confidence back! xo”

Now that you’ve had your own boudoir session, how was it?

“It was amazing! The atmosphere was comfortable and I was immediately put at ease. Having my hair and makeup done was so much fun, I loved the whole experience !”

What was your favourite part of the experience?

“Doing the photo shoot is actually hard work! Keeping focused and listening to directions is not as easy as I thought it would be. My favourite part is when we sat down and picked the images that I loved the most. It was amazing to me that I looked so much better than I ever thought I would!”

Tell us how you felt about your pictures or how your gift was received by the person you gave it too?

“This time around I opted to do some nudes. It was the best decision I ever made! My husband is over the top excited with the album I’ve ordered for him!

I encourage every woman to do this at least once in their lifetime, it truly is life changing!”

Well done, Bella L!  It was a pleasure to work with you again!

Bella E did a session with us earlier this year as a celebration of her 30th birthday and she absolutely rocked it!  But the photos speak for themselves.  

Below is what she had to say about the experience in her own words:

In your own words why did you want to do a session with Bella Boudoir?

“I have always wanted photos of myself done in this way. I believe there is something so special and important to be able to be photographed in this way and to be able to look and be proud of yourself, your body, how you felt when that photo was taken”

“Empowering. Comfortable. Professional.”

What was your favourite part of the experience?

“Being in the studio and getting to be the main focus. Not because I want to be the centre of attention but because I spend so much time not putting myself first, so getting to spend a few hours that is all about me feels wonderful and it shows in the photos”
