The Divas’ Top 3 Boudoir Poses

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

OUR FAVORITE BOUDOIR POSES:

Through the years we’ve created recipes & systems that we know will work with every client. As we said before, we learned the hard way with posing at first, and learned quickly what did and didn’t work for most clients. It took a lot of trial and error (and experimenting with some very gracious friends) before we learned which poses are the absolute best for boudoir.

THREE MUST-DO POSES:

We actually have 17 all-time FAVORITE poses that we know just plain work for all women, no matter what body type. We even named them, so that we could remember and reference them during our shoots. And the awesome thing is that these are not just poses that look good – they are ones that our clients always buy! (If you wanna see all of our 17 fave poses, go check out our Posebook). For today, though, we wanted to share with you 3 examples of our top boudoir poses – these are ones that you absolutely MUST do in each and every boudoir shoot!

MELISSA

This is such a classic, one that we do for every single client. This pose is super flattering on everyone, and it’s easy to get a lot of variety within this pose too. Be sure that you set up your client at a bit of a diagonal angle, so that her upper body is closer to the lens and her lower body and legs are a bit farther away.

TRISHA

This is an easy transition pose after the Melissa… all you need to do is ask your client to flip over on her stomach! Notice on this shot we have our client in the same angle (diagonal, with upper body in foreground). We also ask our clients to roll on their hip/side just a tad, rather than being completely flat with their stomach on the ground or bed. This makes sure that there’s a nice ‘pop’ to her hip and booty, showing off some awesome curves.

LAURA

Ok, now lastly, we wanted to share our “Laura” pose with you – but I’m not going to explain this one, because we actually have this one for you available to WATCH! The video below shows how we work with a client and coach her through this pose. *NOTE: this is a ‘preview’ of our online Posing Class… so the 1st minute gives a couple of glimpses of our posing tips. Skip ahead to about 1:15 to watch us demo the “Laura!”

So if you follow us, you know that our Online Workshop was launched just last month. This means that you have instant access to all the content that we’ve taught at highly successful workshops here in San Diego (which we’ve recent;y replaced with our more intensive 5 day Retreats). We have just uploaded the boudoir business portion for all of our online attendees to watch, one of many, and we wanted to give those of you who are mulling over joining a “sneak peek” into this VERY informative section. This point we drive home more than any other point; “you could be the most sought after photographer on the planet, with gobs of money coming in, but if your money making machine isn’t tuned in, you could very well make more money sitting on your couch watching soap operas everyday.” We go through at length how to tune that in and how to write yourself a paycheck every month.

Throwback Thursday

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

So since we mentioned our past workshops, we thought it might be fun to share a little throwback to some of our very early workshops! Here are some pics from one of our VERY FIRST workshops, way back in 2008! I can’t believe we have been teaching workshops for 7 years, and that we have taught 252 photographers in those 7 years! We have been so lucky to meet each and every one of you. Our early workshops hold a special place in our hearts, because this was back in the days when the photography industry was still not totally on-board with the whole boudoir thing. Plus, we were 2 young things working and shooting out of a home & garage! We hosted the workshop in the home, and even though it was very tight quarters, we made it work. 🙂 Thanks to all of you photographers who came to one of our early workshops! 🙂

And then we can’t talk about the early days of our workshops without mentioning our first-ever PARIS workshop! This was such a cool experience for us, and obviously we loved it so much that we continued going back for 6 more years (and yes we’ll be going back again in 2016)! We loved this experience so much, in fact, that we decided to make a [crazy/silly/goofy/over-the-top/ridiculous/embarrassing] music video to share how excited we were about being in Paris. And our workshop attendees agreed to go along with our crazy plan and film it with us, hahaha!

And here are some of our fab 2009 Paris attendees, along with some little clips from the workshop itself:

Thanks again to all of you photographers who believed in us and traveled to hang out with us and learn about BOUDOIR! xoxo, K&M
