Senior Photos – Pose Ideas

I took my sister-in-law’s senior photos recently and I love how they turned out! I don’t do photography very often because I enjoy video more, so when I do I always try to brush up on posing tips and ideas first. These are a few go-to’s I used in her photoshoot that I thought I’d share for anyone looking to brush up or learn about posing!



Full body hand on hip. I had her cross one leg behind to accentuate and slim her figure. You can also try having your model lift her arm and drape it across her head. (sounds weird, looks great!)




Toe(s) in. Pointing your toes in gives a different playful look to the standard full body shot.




Head down. This shows off eyelashes and hair details.






Hand under chin. This helps with posture to create a flattering look.






Hand on head. This also helps with posture and shows off figure. Adds a little playfulness and artistic feel.

Sitting with the arm propped. This helps with posture and looks relaxed. 




Looking over shoulder. Shows off hair and avoids a double chin. 


I hope these help! I lucked out and had a G O R G E O U S model!!
