Don’t know how to pose? Here are a few great tips | Boudoir Poses

Posing is the number one thing that people are scared of when it comes to a boudoir or pinup photo shoot. Please let me assure you that I have you covered and will walk you through every step and pose you from your fingers down to the tips of your toes.  But here are a few tips about posing like a pro for my camera or any other camera.  These tips will make you look amazing in those obligatory girls night out photos !

  1. Think of the space your your in like a clock- do not keep your hips square at 12:00, turn them just slightly so that your front hip is at 1 or 2 and your back hip is at 7 or 8.   Also do not
  2.  No matter what body type you have, always put your weight on your back leg and pop out your front leg a bit !
  3. Remember what ever is closest to the camera always appears largest.
  4. Arm placement is vital. When putting your hand on your hip, place your hand on your hip, then move it up about 2 inches. Also do not ever leave your arm down flat against your body, it will increase  your body size by the width of your arm.
  5. Here is a tip to avoid having a double chin.  Position you face towards the camera and then push your neck forward like a turtle and then position it slightly down. This helps slim the face !
  6. Relax, Relax, Relax!  Don’t scrunch up those shoulders !!!!
  7.  If you are in my studio doing a pose, if it does not hurt, you are probably doing wrong. Arching is very important for these types of photos.
