1. The lean and laugh
This is one of my all time favorites! Lean towards the camera and laugh. Yes, you will feel totally awkward. And yes, it will look amazing!!
2. The knuckle cracker
This pose works great for guys! Just pretend to be cracking your knuckles. Another version is to hold something in your hand, like a leaf.
3. The nose hair pose
This angle can really be awesome! Just make sure that you aren't too close so that you don't end up with a double chin. Lol!
4. Dance it up
Play some music and dance around! Another prompt that works is to pretend you are at a music festival and you are dancing like no one is watching!
5. Walk this way
The slow stroll...and sometimes not so slow! Walking adds so much fun movement to your photos! Bonus, look to the side, at the camera and then the other side as you walk.
6. Blue Steel
Channel your inner Zoolander and pull out your Blue Steel. Always a fun one because more times than not it leads to immense laughter afterwards. Which is a total bonus!
7. Love yourself
Give yourself a little hug! This can be done with two arms, one arm or while hugging your knees. The most important part of this pose-commit!!
8. Hands in your hair-don't care!
The number one recommendation when you are playing with your hair? Never stop moving! Keep those fingers engaged, and go all the way through from the scalp to the ends of your hair.
9. Looking into the future
These are often some of my favorites and usually allow for more of the landscape. Just turn that head sideways and look into your future.
10. The neck massage
One of my go to's for guys! This pose is a win-win...I get great shots and you get a mini-massage. Just like with hands in the hair-don't stop moving. And honestly, the more you lean into it-the better it turns out!
11. Hands in pockets
This is a great pose for everyone! Front pockets, back pockets, jacket pockets...they all look good! My favorite? Back pockets, with an ankle cross and a slight rotation of your body! Always a winner!
So whether you are a fellow photographer or a senior getting ready for your epic session, I hope these tips help you prepare! There are so many other poses that I love to do-but these easy eleven will get you lots of different looks. Let me know if you try them and what your favorite one is!
