Posing Tips and Ideas

Please also read the "My Take on Modeling" page

Now that we’ve got your mind straight on what modeling is about, let’s talk about you and your photo session. People come in all different shapes and sizes, big, small, skinny, tall and the list goes on. It's not a one size fits all world. That's what makes us who we are. With each body type comes a set of ideas on how best to present yourself to the camera.

One thing to know is, there is no “good side,” both sides are equally good when properly lit.
Secondly there’s no such thing as “photogenic" and "not photogenic." If you feel that you’re not photogenic then you haven’t worked with the right photographer for you. It's about how you present yourself to the camera. The pose, attitude and expression that you deliver, will make or break the image no matter the photographers skillset.

I hope the information provided in the following resources will help guide us on a path to creating amazing memories.

Tips for Maternity Models:

The perfect time to capture your baby bump is around the 30 week mark. It's around that time which the belly is most prominent but not so large that it's uncomfortable to pose. This is a special time for you and that joy, love and excitement is what we want to capture. This is a special time for you and that joy, love and excitement is what we want to capture.
