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.

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!

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!
