Posing Tips

Alright, we have covered some basics, but when it comes down to posing – how can you prepare for this?  Well, there is always Pinterest, but it’s so easy to get lost in all those beautiful images you couldn’t possibly remember how everyone was standing, sitting, twirling and how they looked so natural.  Well, you’re in luck.  There are a few classic poses that you will love and that are oh so flattering.

I call this one “the cyclops.”  Okay, that’s not very romantic.  You could also say you’re making a heart with your heads.  But I call it the cyclops because I’ll never forget one couple when they were in this pose saying that it looked like their partner look like cyclops and they burst out laughing. That was the best shot of their shoot.  Anyways, this is a classic. The key – touch your foreheads together. Don’t be afraid – it always looks cute.
