Do you want your boudoir shoot to have an editorial vibe? If you want your photos to look like they could be in a magazine then think outside the box and bring props that can add a story to your session. Typically small items that give your hands something to do work best. Editorial photos portray a concept and that can be anything you wish! Here are some unique boudoir prop ideas…
A coffee mug
Something as simple as a coffee mug can make for some beautiful photos and it is a unique prop idea. It can be your favorite coffee mug or teacup or your partner’s favorite cup. It can be plain or have your favorite quote!
A champagne glass (and bottle)
“There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.” – Bette Davis
Champagne with a pretty glass is not only a great prop but also great for you to enjoy during your session.
Rose petals (or flowers)
Rose petals can be used so many different ways during a boudoir shoot. My best advice is to bring silk petals so they do not stain the sheets or your lingerie. Yes, the ones pictured below are silk and look so fabulous!
A book, newspaper, or magazine
Imagine all the sexy poses you can do with a newspaper or magazine! But don’t worry, I will come up with all the creative poses for you. I have so many fabulous ideas! All you need to do is bring your props!
Compact case and lipstick
There is always something so sexy about a woman preparing to go out for a date night or to spend time with her partner. Bring your favorite makeup to play with during your shoot for a few unique candid looks. Makeup is a fun idea for a boudoir prop!
Strawberries (fruit or food)
Any kind of food that you think would make for a great photo opt is always a good idea. I’ve had women bring different types of fruits, cupcakes, cakes, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, honey and so many other interesting food items. You can be as creative as you want with food.
Summing up: Be creative and bring small props that can add a unique element to your photos. Let your photographer be as creative as she/he would like to be to create images that will have an editorial vibe. What woman wouldn’t want to feel like she just walked out of the pages of Vogue!
