Ideas for Posing

Browse family pictures online for inspiration. Remember To: Get in Close, Pucker Up, Get Silly, Hold Hands, Hug It Out, Play it Up, Jump, Lie Down, Stack Them Up, Focus on the Kids, Focus on the Parents, Focus on the Grandparents, &  Act Natural.

Looking good in front of the camera.

  • If you put weight on your back leg, you’ll feel more comfortable and look natural instead of awkward.
  • To look thinner, leave space between your arms and your body to show your waistline.
  • Remember to push your shoulders back and don’t slouch.
  • Avoid looking down to prevent a double chin.
  • To avoid the totem pole look, bend whatever you can bend.
  • Don’t leave your arms hanging straight down. Try touching the person next to you or resting your hand on a nearby object.
  • To avoid shine, consider bringing a personal towel to remove perspiration and use powder on your face and neck.
  • Give the kids a break in between shots to stretch, run, and play.
  • Let them play during the pictures!  You’ll get great candid shots and capture your little ones the way they really are.
  • Play peek-a-boo, tickle, and hold the baby up in the air for real, genuine smiles.
  • Bribery, works very well! Remind them of the reward throughout the shoot.

  • Starfish & Shells

  • Dress appropriate for the season – Long sleeves & pants in the spring, fall, and winter. Short sleeves & shorts for the summer.
  • Men – Keep in mind that an evening portrait will benefit greatly from a fresh shave!
  • Men – Collar on dress shirts should have buttons, the wind will otherwise lift the corners.
  • Ladies – Avoid ruffles on dressed, if it’s windy the outfit will lay correctly.
  • Eye Glasses: If you wear glasses, try to get your optician to supply you with empty rims for the day of your appointment.

Other Tips

Toddlers – Make sure they rest during the day. The session time may held around the time your infant or toddler usually goes to bed.  Have them take a nap several hours before you head to your portrait session. Pace their wake up time! Don’t wake them up at least minute to get ready, sleepy kids get irritable.
