Any suggestions on budiour style photos with a larger (think 2x) women? My sister is begging me to take some nice photos for her husbands gift. Shes a larger lady and I would like some tips on how to make these photos perfect.

First step I do is hit up google images, print samples to have on hand. When posing stretch the model out. If she has areas she does not like, hide it with wardrobe or props.

Side note .... not sure I could shoot my sister in a boudoir setting (I actually dont have a sister) I get it work is work ... but still.

maybe babyb is female. :D

quick google of "posing youtube creative live" also look for Sue Bryce

it is a good resource for posing and there are other videos if you add "full figure". Pay attention to what this woman says about how shadows can slim the body. Might also google "short lighting portrait" for more info. Use the longest lens you can.

^Agree with lighting, but pose looks uncomfortable.

babyb, have you checked out the curvy/plus-size thread in Glamour & Nude? Many examples of poses there.
