Why we love these: These poses show the connection between the couple and are not camera-aware at all. You get to see the couple interacting and enjoying each other while feeling like you’re watching from the outside.

Ashley Loth of Pink Photography

Why we love this: Ashley did an amazing job capturing this intimate moment between couples by only showing them from the shoulders and up. It’s sensual without being risque, and would be a great go-to pose for couples who might be more timid.

Why we love this: This pose is a bit more abstract since it only shows a small portion of the couples’ bodies, but it’s super sexy as it highlights the bust of the lady with the picture of her significant other’s chest in the background.

Why we love this: In this frame, the couple is just standing together but what makes it sexy is the man has his fingers tucked in the back of the lady’s suit. Remember, not all things sexy have to be completely over the top – it can be as simple as a small gesture like the one below.

Bridgett Baysden of MI Photography Life

Why we love this: The woman in this image is making great eye contact with the camera, making her seem strong and confident and not afraid of her own sexuality as she enjoys the attention of her partner.

Why we love this: This image is another one that’s really suggestive with just the slightest placement. As with the image above, the woman is making strong eye contact with the camera while her partner’s hand rests on his chest. The rest of her partner is out of frame, leaving the viewer to wonder what he’s up to.

Ben Murray of For Your Eyes Boudoir Photography

 

Why we love this: This pose is super flattering for most ladies since having her arms up over her head elongates the torso and lifts the breasts just slightly.

Why we love this: This pose is another super flattering one since the woman has her back arched while lying over her partner, which stretches out the tummy area. The low lighting also makes it super sexy since the only light available really highlights the shape and contours of the woman’s body.

Why we love this: This pose is amazing for a couple reasons. First, the woman has her hip popped out which gives her an amazing curve to her butt and hips. Secondly, it appears as though the woman is really taking charge here, and we love a pose that helps a woman feel empowered by her sexuality (as long as it’s something her and her partner are ok with!).
