Posing Ideas | Dubuque Photographer | Senior Portraits

April 22, 2015  •  1 Comment

When you book a session with me, you don't have to worry about the posing because I got you covered! However, before your session it's nice to look at pictures and see what you like and would feel comfortable with. 

Here are some posing ideas:

Laying down

 

Looking over your shoulder Looking down
Hands in hair

Hands on face

Hands on hip hands on shoulder

You can see that a lot of posing involves your hands- it shows interaction and movement in the picture and draws you in. 

 

One thing to remember that kind of contradicts itself: if you feel awkward it will usually show up in camera...but at the same time some poses might feel really weird but they look great in camera! Just listen to your photographer in this case- they will guide you. 

 

Fun tip- want to get that pouty look like the Olsen twins do? Whenever they smile for the camera they say "prune". I bet you just tried it ;) Confession: I did! 

Magazine tip- to pose like a magazine cover imagine someone you like or care about is in the lens. Then, lower your chin and look directly into the lens-stay at eye level- you automatically look more confident!
