Nailing That Pose – Portraits

Easter weekend marks the start of a very fun year for portraits (e.g. Fine Art portraits, engagements, and family portraits). As I start to plan each family session, creating concepts, scouting locations, and visualizing the images that we will make together, you are probably thinking and doing something else…

How am I going to pose?

If your wondering how everyone will pose in front of the camera. And you start to get ‘stage freight’. Don’t worry. I have everything under control. I will pose everyone so that they look great.

However, to help you feel more comfortable and at ease, here is a posing guide I created. Hopefully this will calm your nerves.

I am a small time gal who loves to photograph pets and people. I love rolling around with dog, wading ankle deep in Georgian bay, photographing intimate weddings and the stories that are too, and just being me!
