Are you planning a boudoir shoot but feel like something is missing? While you never need anything more than YOU for a successful boudoir shoot, incorporating a few things can always spice things up! Props can add an extra touch of personality and FUN to your boudoir session. As a Sioux Fall boudoir photographer with years of experience, I’ve seen it all when it comes to boudoir props. So, I’ve gathered a list of five props for a boudoir session to spice things up!
There’s something undeniably sexy about a water and a boudoir session. Whether you’re posing in the bathtub (with or without water!!) or getting soaked from a water hose/sprayer, water is a great prop for creating a sultry, relaxed atmosphere. Plus, it’s a great way to show off your curves and add a little extra mystery to your photos!
It’s no secret I’m a fan of the infamous white sheet. A white sheet can cover as much or as little as you’d like! It’s the perfect way to give a sexy feel to your boudoir images while still leaving some to the imagination!
If you’re planning a boudoir shoot as a gift for your future spouse, incorporating a ring or veil can be a sweet and romantic touch. Whether you’re posing with your engagement ring or rocking a veil and garter belt, these props can add a touch of bridal elegance to your photos.
I know this one might sound a little intimidating, but trust me – a whip can be a great way to add some edge and power to your boudoir session. Mary had this to say about adding a whip to her boudoir session, “My favorite part of this experience was bringing out the props. It was fun making them part of the pictures but tastefully.”
Adding a little bling to your boudoir shoot can be a great way to accentuate your curves and show off your unique style. Whether you’re rocking a belly chain, a body harness, or a pair of sparkling nipple pasties, body jewelry can be a fun and unexpected addition to your photos.
As a reminder, you never NEED any props for your boudoir session! You are beautiful just as you are! The most important thing is to have fun and feel confident in your own skin. Whether you’re rocking that sexy new lingerie, or nothing at all, you are beautiful and worthy of celebration!
Boudoir photography celebrates all the ways your crazy beautiful body has held you up, moved you forward, and turned you into a woman who can get. it. done. Sis, that is something that should make you proud.
