How to Pose in Photos! 12 Pose Ideas Every Short Girl Must Know!

Posing for photos can feel super awkward!
You can be standing there for a long time feeling pretty confused and
uncomfortable! *Look at this bike it’s so cute! Okay let’s try pose next to it! So
today I’m going to share with you my top 12 poses that you can add to your
arsenal. If you have a graduation wedding or just through a really fun Instagram
photo shoot that you want to do I hope these poses help you out. Be sure
to follow me on Instagram to enter in this month’s giveaway and also I wanted
to finally announce my giveaway winner for my previous giveaway.
Congratulations to drumroll please! Don’t forget to click on that notification
so you never miss out on any of my videos, so without further ado let’s get
started! Pose number one: so you’re sitting down
and you want to make your legs look longer and leaner it’s like my head is
gonna attach to anything like it says to match my legs I love the architecture of
stairs I think it really draws your eye into a photo stick one leg up and then
one leg back so not too high if you’re wearing shorts be sure to pull line down
ladies don’t want to show any of that lean back fix your hair
gotta compose because when you extend one leg out it elongates your legs make
sure your legs look miles long and it draws your eye from one end to the other
end of the photo and makes it look a lot longer pose number two lower angles can
elongate your body for all of you petite and short girls out there if you’re
going to love my next tip have your photographer kind of lower the camera a
bit and Ankle it upwards don’t really look so much taller when she angles the
camera down low it’s all about the low angles that way it makes you look so
much longer and taller that is how I make my legs look like they are five
feet long even though they are not pose number three bringing your arms up
is a great way to show off your sleeves if you’re doing a fashion shot or
jewelry also looks very carefree make sure for this pose to always point your
fingers along at your fingers make sure to kind of point one direction because
it makes your hand look so much longer sometimes when you’re taking portrait
photos it can get kind of boring and you’re just smiling towards the camera
it can feel a little awkward so a fun prop you can add to your photos if I had
some flower petals so you could simply just take a few off of the flower bush
and just throw them into the air and add a nice dynamic yield to your photos moving on to the next pose so you want
to take an outfit photo but you want to look taller this is one of my favorite
go-to poses I like to stand with both of my feet next to each other and then I
will bring one foot in front of the other
this pose makes me look like I’m taking a step forward and sometimes I’ll even
look left or right and not directly at the camera so it looks like this is
something that’s a candid shot but it’s not really if you ever feel
uncomfortable during a photo shoot let your photographer know you want to
review the images so you can get a mental note of how you’re doing my next posing hack is to play with your
clothes or accessories if you’re feeling a little awkward just play around with
your skirt or put your hands in your pocket but not all the way in you can
also hold on to your collar you can also like tug on your shirt a bit I think
it’s just fun if you play around with your clothes it makes it look a lot more
natural and casual next I’m going to talk all about how to
perfect that fake candid you know that image where you feel like wow
did he look really happy or how did they capture that moment so well alright I’m
ready for my walking shot did you get it did you get it did you get it okay I
like to swing my arms back and forth tapping and rocking back and forth can
help capture that candid walk and then kind of laugh and look behind me and
smile that’s just one of my favorite go twos however photographer take 10 to 20
practice images that way you don’t feel that pressure that you’re going to get
that perfect image not every picture has to be perfect you know I usually go
through a shoot and take 300 photos and only underusing one it’s time for coffee
because I am sleepy I don’t think I got enough sleep last night I’m going to
show you how you can pose with your drinks so I really like just like
interacting with your drink so taking a sip or just kind of looking away and
playing with your hair it just makes it feel a lot more natural and less Posey
feeling a little bit bloated that day I know everybody does usually looking
straight ahead at the camera is not as slimming as looking from the side you
feel that when you look straight on it kind of looks really awkward a lot
quieter you can look naked even if you’re
wearing an off-the-shoulder pop let the wind do its work put your hand here and thank you hi every photographer shoot
this photo a little bit from above and then angle your body to the side a bit
to watch your arm sometimes your arms can squish really
tight against your body you just kind of want to realize that and that way your
arm looks nice long and lean and then you can also look a habit or like look
off to the side and kind of smile and your profile will tend to look a lot
more slimmer if you ever feel that you’re over sexualizing any of your
poses ask the photographer if you could take a look at them and if you’re
feeling uncomfortable just let them know that hey these are some of my favorite
poses you don’t have to stick your butt out you don’t have to like stick your
boobs out those are not poses that you have to do just be aware that pose in
the way that you feel the most natural and comfortable so those were my top 12
poses that you can recreate for any of your upcoming photo shoots comment down
below and let me know which tip was the most helpful for you oh whoa whoa boom
