Posing is the most difficult part of a photo shoot for many people – What do I do with my hands? How do I stand? Etc. Your images are the first introduction to people that don’t know who you are and you have to show up with full confidence. When you feel awkward and uneasy, it shows in your face therefore in your images.

This is part one of my posing series on the basic poses that work for all female body types. These poses instantly boost the confidence of every client that I’ve directed to use these poses. 

Here are the types

  • Hand on Hip – with this pose you push your body on an angle towards the camera, be sure to choose your preferred side for the hip action! Have fun with this pose – throw your head back if you like!
  • The Stance – this is the ultimate power pose which both hands on hips and forward facing to the camera
  • Arm + Cross + Lean – with this pose its a three part set up that is the confidence booster

I recently did a demo at a recent shoot with aspiring model, Sade Skyye, on these fun go to poses to show you how easy it is to do: https://vimeo.com/594473153
