Posing Tips – Looking good in front of the camera, who doesn’t want that!
- 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, use lots of powder on your face and neck.
- Give the kids a break in between shots to stretch, run, and play.
- Let the kids 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 if they do well, they will get a reward.
Make everyone back-home jealous with envey when they see your beautiful beach pictures!
