Strike a Pose

Many first time Shy Vixens have no idea how to pose. Does my body look awkward like this? Should I look directly at the camera? What do I do with my hands?

The good news is, that’s completely expected! We work with women from all walks of life – absolutely no modeling experience needed. Posing is more complicated than it seems, and when it comes to boudoir, even photos that look candid and effortless are typically arranged down to the last detail. During your shoot, we walk you through every step of striking the perfect pose, helping you find your angles and making sure you look comfortable, confident and natural.

That doesn’t mean you can’t prepare though. Picking a few key poses you want to try and sharing them with us before your shoot will help us plan the right props and backdrops ahead of schedule. Check out or guide to popular boudoir poses and start saving ideas for your boudoir experience!
