How many times have you said to yourself, I’ll get my family portraits done when I lose the last 10 pounds. We hear it all the time. Frankly, I say all the time “when I lose the baby weight”, by the way – my kids are 6 and 7. But here’s the truth, I may or may not ever get back to my pre-baby body. But I do look back at those memories and am glad I got in the picture.
You might not be able to lose the weight but here are some quick posing tips that will help you look like you did:
Collar Bone Forward: I know that sounds weird but trust us collar-bone forward and angled towards the camera has a slimming effect.
Trust is so important, you should be with a studio you really trust. If you are with a true professional, they will help you pose and look amazing. They will help you take the stress out of planning. Spend the extra $65 to have their stylist plan your wardrobe so you can wake up the morning of your session with a plan and knowing you look amazing!
Finally, let go of preconceived notions. Make sure to let your photographer know your style and goals but don’t bring in a Pinterest image and say I want this exactly. Creating an amazing image is about the technical stuff – exposure and light – but it’s also an art. It’s about the photographer seeing your family’s personality and capturing that. Build trust with a studio and your image will be what others are using as Pinterest inspiration!
