New year, new you! 🎉 Have you been planning a boudoir session for the 2022 season and searching for the top boudoir shoot posing ideas? You've come to the right place. Boudoir photography is a great gift for a wedding, anniversary... or just because! Every year more and more women take part-- and have a great time in the process.
The key to a successful boudoir photography session is, of course, finding a top notch boudoir photographer. This is not the time to skimp. The hard reality is that a highly skilled boudoir photographer is integral to beautiful results. What's the catch? Well, good photographers aren't going to be cheap-- and more often than not when it comes to photographers-- cheap photographers aren't good.
Look at it this way-- will you be serving your wedding guests Taco Bell? Why not? It's the cheapest? You can get an entire meal for $2.49. How can that be beat? Doesn't that make it the best (and only) choice? How can any other restaurant even stay in business? Why would anyone ever choose anything different?? They'd be wasting money! --Well, of course, we know this isn't how it works. Your wedding isn't about finding the cheapest food available. It's a special occasion! It's about the experience and enjoying a great dinner with family and friends. --So maybe the "cheapest" isn't always the best choice in all instances.
The same is true about your boudoir session. It isn't about finding the cheapest photographer out there. It's a special occasion, just like your wedding, and should be handled as such. Your photos will be something that is treasured for years. An expert boudoir photographer will be skilled in creating dramatic and beautiful boudoir poses that will make you look your best.
Once you're in the hands of a competent photographer, the rest is easy.
So, what kind of boudoir photo poses are women doing in 2022? Cute ones! Women want to look beautiful, and do poses that make them feel great about themselves. Let's take a look at some of my fun "Must-D0" boudoir poses for 2022.
