10+ simple but fun poses for your blog and Instagram
One of the most common statements I hear from my clients is, “How do I pose?!” It’s normal to not know how to pose without feeling awkward, when you aren’t a professional model or used to being in front of a camera, There are so many other elements to good photo composition, but the way you pose can make all the difference for post-worthy content.
I love gathering inspo on Instagram to share with my clients! It gets both of our wheels turning before the shoot. Here are some tips to think about when posing for your next personal style shoot:
Keep it simple. You don’t need extravagant poses to create a great photo. If the shoot is to meant to show off your personal style, the focus should be just that!
Think happy thoughts. If all you’re thinking about is how awkward or nervous you feel, it will show in the photos. Think about how fab you are and show your confidence!
Practice in the mirror. The more you practice, the more comfortable you’ll be when it’s time to shoot! Pose in your outfits, twirl in them, sit in them, to make sure they’re perfect for the shoot.
Find inspo. Save some of your favorite poses from Instagram, blogs and Pinterest to give you ideas.
