Boudoir photos aspire to capture your natural beauty and personality. Boudoir accessories can help. I’ve created this list of fun and creative props for boudoir shoots that can give your photos a personal touch.

Props For Boudoir


Sports Theme

Are you or your partner into sports? Sports gear can make your photos lots of fun! Baseballs, footballs and soccer balls can help with this look. Baseball bats and hockey sticks, are unique props too. Think surfboards, ice or roller skates, snowboards – every sport has some way to be represented.

Match these props with a jersey, or a bra & panty set, and you have the makings of a very personal sports boudoir photo!


Hats are another great prop for a boudoir shoot. Wear a partner’s hat, or something you own that they love on you. Try something new and different, or wear a cap from your favorite sports team.

There are a lot of ways to use a hat in boudoir photos. It can look cute on, or used to cover yourself strategically and leave them wondering!

Here Comes The Bride

For bridal boudoir, veils, shoes, jewelry and other wedding accessories will help recall this special time in your lives. Of course cap these with some sexy white lingerie and your fiancé will fall in love all over again.

Playful Props For Boudoir

Do you or your partner play music? Bring a guitar, a Ukulele, a violin, cello, flute or clarinet.

Not a musician but still love music? Bring a t-shirt or hat featuring your favorite band or singer. Headphones, vinyl records and their album covers make great boudoir props too!

Flowers For Fun

Add a floral element to your photos. A single rose, a bouquet, or we could sprinkle some rose petals around you. Flowers can create a romantic mood and add extra color and texture to your pictures. These are also great for bridal boudoir. Talk to your florist and get some flowers that will be in your wedding bouquet!

The Chef

Do you or your partner enjoy working in the kitchen? Bring an apron, a couple of kitchen utensils and a chef hat for some fun. Want something super sexy? Bring some flour and put a white handprint on your bottom. Your partner will eat it up!

The Job

Is your partner a salesman or lawyer? Bring a briefcase. A handyman or contractor? Bring tools or a tool belt. A work jacket or coat, a shirt & tie – something that says you were thinking of them during your time in front of the camera.

Check with your boudoir photographer to see what they have and then get anything you’ll need to bring.

You won’t want to use props in all your photos, so select just a few of your favorite ideas from the list. Let your photographer know ahead of the photoshoot what you are bringing prop wise. That will help him or her to think creatively and come up with some flattering poses for you.

Remember, your boudoir photos should focus on you. Props for boudoir shoots are merely accents that allow you to shine.
