An erotic lingerie photoshoot is a perfect way to spice up your love life, show your honey how much you care, or give yourself that much-needed confidence boost!

Whatever the reason, the best part is you don’t have to pay a professional to take photos of you. You can set up a DIY Lingerie Photoshoot from the comfort of your home, providing you with the much-needed privacy to go all out with what you wear, how you pose, and everything in between.

We put together a guide with everything you need to know to put together the perfect DIY erotic lingerie photoshoot to fit the aesthetic or vibe you are looking for.

How to Pose

To take the spiciest, sensual photos from the comfort of your own home, you'll need to find a few poses that are perfect for accentuating your natural beauty, adding emphasis to the curves of your body, all whilst creating an alluring sensation.

Here are a few of our favourites to consider:

Arched Back Pose

Lay on your back on a bed or the floor and if you're flexible enough, dramatically arch your back to add emphasis to your curves. This sexy pose allows you to emphasize your natural curves and flatter the best parts of yourself. You may want to set your camera on a timer and take several images and angles to see which look flatters your body the most. You can also test different placements! Consider arching your back against a wall, in the kitchen or bathroom, or the couch.

In Front of the Mirror Pose

For this pose, you can choose to be half nude, fully nude, or dressed in a sexy lingerie set. Posing in front of the mirror and positioning the camera behind you allows you the freedom to move and situate your body in a way that makes you feel sexy. There is a ton of opportunity to add a bit of personality back into this post.

Lying on Your Back

This pose looks great from different angles and various locations. You may choose to pose on a couch or a bed. For added dimension, you can make your legs or your arms the centrepiece by angling them. For this pose, we recommend lying on a rug, elongating your neck, and bending your legs, and you won't believe how sexy you look!

Play With Your Hair

Give your hands something to do and play with your hair as you pose. Consider running your fingers through your hair, swirling it around on your finger as you bite down on your lower lip, and get ready for your sexy selfie to get real sassy.

Focus on Your Favourite Part of Your Body

Close-ups allow you to focus on your favourite parts of your body and add extra emphasis to the parts that make you feel sexy. Whether it’s a chest portrait, a focus on your lips, or a shot from behind, we recommend wearing a sexy set that gets you in the mood to strike a pose.

Pose With Crisp White Sheets

Crisp white sheets are a great prop that can make your complexion glow, add a sexy flair, and make the sexy photoshoot more intimate. You can play with wrapping yourself in the sheet or taking photos underneath for a fun prop idea.

Boudoir Photography Ideas

Now that you've narrowed down the list of poses you want to try out, it's time to add a unique flair to your boudoir photoshoot. Here are a few ways to add a bit of sexy fun.

Experiment With Natural Lighting

Never forget, natural lighting is your friend! Scoping out natural lighting in your home can help make your boudoir photography look more professional, help your skin glow, and add extra dimension. One of our favourite boudoir photo ideas is to try to take your sexy photos during sunrise or sunset. This can help create a soft, natural look, enhance your lingerie outfit, and give a more romantic feel to your photos.

Play With Moody Lighting

If the natural lighting doesn't feel like the vibe you’re looking for, you can try to play with moody lighting. For this look, we recommend replacing some of your lights with a coloured light bulb of your choice and using the lighting to take some sexy close-ups. The added colour adds a bit of spice to just about any pose you choose to do.

Keep it Casual

There is something that is undeniably desirable about keeping it casual. Drinking tea in your favourite lingerie set or lounging in bed in a satin robe. If this is more of the aesthetic you're going for, we recommend dressing in something comfortable yet sexy and playing with poses in the early morning on your bed or couch. The best part is, your lover is sure to be obsessed with the alluring side of you that they only get to see.

Black & White Shoot

We love an artsy queen. Doing a black and white lingerie shoot is one of the most popular boudoir photography ideas. Black and white can keep your lingerie photoshoot seductive and add extra focus on the parts of you that you want to emphasize and allow you to be the main focal point. In a way, it mutes the background and keeps your nude shoot the centre of attention.

Bathroom, Kitchen, and Everything In-between

Whether you’re making a scrapbook for your hubby on your wedding day or doing a lingerie photoshoot for yourself, you should have some fun with it by taking your photoshoot around the house! Try posing by the kitchen sink or in the bathtub. You can also play with poses in the doorways or take photos in the shower whilst the water is on. You wouldn't believe how spicy things can get! Plus, it gives your significant other something to think about whilst they lounge around the house.

At Home or in a Hotel?

This is up to you. If you feel like the vibes are off in your current home or flat, you may want to splurge on a hotel room to ensure you nail the look you’re looking for. There is also a bit of added mystery to the sexy selfie. At the end of the day, make sure you choose a space that you feel comfortable and confident in.

The Right Makeup

When choosing the right makeup look for your sexy photoshoot remember to pick one that is true to you, will help you feel confident in your photos, and give you the look you’re trying to achieve.

Here are a few of our choices:


A cat-eye makeup look is fun, flirty, and all types of sexy. The best part is, it’s easy to do at home! You can choose to add eye shadow or leave the cat-eye to do the talking. For this look, you just need to do a thicker style winged eyeliner, and you’re good to go.

A Red Lip

There is nothing more seductive than a red lip. The right red lipstick can make your look more distinctive and sensual than ever before. Try taking photos with your lips being the focal point or matching your lingerie to your lipstick shade for some added fun.

Use Light, Nude Colours

Keeping your makeup fresh and not over the top can help keep the focus on the lingerie, your body, and your natural charm. Depending on your skin tone, we recommend playing with nudes, pale pinks, or lighter shades. This will give you a natural look and keep your images looking balanced.

Play With Eyeliner

Maybe, you don’t want to look too done up for your sexy photoshoot. That's okay! If you don’t feel confident going all-natural and want a little extra something, you can always play with some eyeliner under the eye, this will help make your eyes pop in the photos.

Couples Boudoir Photography

A couple’s boudoir photography session is a great date night idea to add a bit of spice back into your love life. For this type of sexy photoshoot, there are a ton of different directions you can take to achieve the look you’re going for.

Maybe, you want to turn up the heat in the bedroom and take a sexy and steamy photoshoot with your lover in bed. Take it to the kitchen and get naughty with some whipped cream or cake batter. If either of those doesn’t sound like you, try fun and a flirty session on the couch where you can capture your pure happiness on camera.

Whether it’s an anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or just for fun, a sexy photoshoot is sure to ramp up the intimacy and provide you two with a connection like no other.

We hope this DIY guide helped inspire you to take the lingerie photoshoot of your dreams! Remember, the most important part of this experience is that you feel great and that this experience provides you with the confidence you deserve!
