One of you lovely folks from Periscope asked how to pose in photos. Kaye - my amazing photographer - happened to be in the scope and thought it would be fun to shoot 3 different natural ways to pose in photos. These are sort of like my go to poses - so you'll start to notice that I do this a lot. Here are 3 ways to pose to look amazing in photos.
CROSS YOUR ANKLES
When you just stand there, head on, it typically isn't the most flattering. Crossing your ankles makes you look thinner and creates a shape.
THE FAKE LAUGH
It sounds like a lot (and sometimes it can be) but the fake laugh always looks better than the "show all your teeth" smile. The laugh adds life to photo versus it just feeling like a pose.
Typically (especially if you were a cheerleader like me) you tend to put your hands on hips and strike a pose. It's not your fault. We've seen it everywhere from our mom, on TV and fashion runways from the 1990's. But you look effortless and easy, breezy when you move naturally in your photos and let the camera naturally catch your movement.
What's your favorite go to pose when you take pictures?
