Boudoir Photography Poses For Shy Clients

You will encounter at some point in your career as a boudoir photographer a client who wants her pictures taken in a nice stylish way, but who is utterly shy of showing off her body. Boudoir photography poses for the shy client are specifically for this type of client and are geared more towards obscuring the image a bit and leaving more for the imagination, as well as making the client feel comfortable about what she is doing.

There are many reasons a client may feel uncomfortable about showing her body to a total stranger, let alone just feeling comfortable showing off her body to any person. They sometimes have reasons for doing boudoir photography, maybe as a reward for losing some weight, or they just ended and bad relationship or marriage and want to feel like a woman again, or any number of other reasons other than a present for the groom on their honeymoon. It is IMPERATIVE you are mindful of the unspoken reasons and to not push your clients too far or too much. To make sure she is as comfortable as can be and is comfortable with you as the photographer.

Boudoir Photography Poses – No Face Shots

Some boudoir photography poses that you can use for shy clients are shots where the face it not show at all, such as the following leg shots. They’re still sexy, still beautiful but they aren’t showing the clients face. This is good to start as it may help the client to get at ease and start to warm up. Some clients may worry their pictures will show up on the internet somehow, and they may, IF they give permission. If they do not give permission then by all means DO NOT use them on your website or any place else. This is trust thing and if they can’t trust you, who can?

Obscuring the face or not showing the face at all is a way to make the image one that a person can insert themselves into the picture.

Boudoir Photography Poses – Obscuring the body but showing the face

The next two shots are showing face but showing little body or obscuring it greatly. The first image is a client who has her clothes still on but has her top pulled slightly down off her shoulder to reveal a bra strap. Staring off into the distance giving the impression she was not aware of the photo or candid.  While not showing much body, it does SUGGEST getting ready to undress or unveil. Remember that showing little can also be more when the mind is brought into play.

The second shot is with the use of a mirror. A client is slightly out of focus close to the camera but is in focus in the mirror on the wall. Sometimes the mirror is like a protective shield for the shy client and these boudoir photography poses can help a shy client feel much more comfortable, thereby letting them to slowly open up on their own accord.
