We all have that one less-than-flattering photo. You know, the one that looks like you're about to birth a food baby or three?
I get why women find it intimidating to come in for a session and get undressed, or at least partially undressed in front of a stranger. Just know that I won't stare blankly at you while you figure out how to emote sexy. I will guide you into poses that make you look like the drop-dead gorgeous woman that you are.
One of the things we'll discuss when you come in for your session is any perceived problem areas. I always hear that women want to lose a few pounds first, but I have you covered in the posing department. Let's look at some examples, shall we?
Titling your head slightly down can be flattering for most face shapes but tilt too far down and you create a double chin. Tyra Banks has a trick that she calls the "turtle". Push your chin out a bit and hold your tongue against the roof of your mouth to avoid a double chin.
Letting arms hang limply at your side flattens the muscle and makes it look larger. Bending your elbows and creating a triangle creates a much more flattering silhouette.
I'm all about creating or enhancing curves. Having her bend the leg that is closest to the camera and place her hands behind her to create negative space gives her a much more dynamic shape.
You can see that the photo on the left does nothing for her shape. Her arms are hanging limply at her side. Again, I have her bend the leg that is closest to the camera and bend her elbow slightly to create negative space.
Create the illusion of a smaller waist. No Photoshop required. Simply placing your hands around your middle and bringing them in closely gives the appearance of a teeny, tiny waist.
I can also help to create a rounder derriere. Lifting the hips creates a booty-ful booty to behold and has the added benefit of smoothing out any cellulite one may have.
I promise that I will never take a photo of your bum straight on; that's always a sure fire way to make you look as wide as possible. We avoid this by having your shift your weight onto one hip and bending the leg that's furthest away from the camera.
"Pop" the booty in a standing position and you've got a butt worthy of the song "Baby Got Back"!
It's all about that hourglass shape! Tummy in, chest out! Shift your weight onto one hip, and create a diamond with your hands on your hips.
See? I promise I can make you look as gorgeous as the ladies on my website. What are you waiting for?
