So you have a photoshoot booked, your hair and makeup are looking flawless and you have a killer outfit on. You get in front of the camera and suddenly you're thinking "WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS?! Been there. Done that. And quite frankly, it still happens. 

Getting in front of a camera can be hard. I mean, it's so easy to revert to your go-to post of putting your hand on your hip or a 2000's peace sign. Today I'm sharing five fun and easy poses to try out at your next photoshoot. So, if you're looking to add some *spice* to your Instagram photos, keep reading. 



WALK IT OUT

This is probably the easiest pose to incorporate and my usual go-to. It's as simple as it sounds, you just walk towards to camera or rock back and forth from your front and back foot to make it look like you're walking. Want to switch it up even more? Instead of your traditional straight on walking shot, try having your photographer or camera angled lower and walk at an angle to make your legs look miles long.






GIVE IT A TWIRL

Show off your flowy dress and try out some twirling shots! This is my favorite pose to do in dresses and I love the movement that it gives. Simply twirl back and forth to add some movement to your clothes. If you have a longer dress or skirl you could also try holding it in your hands as your twirl for a fun shot as well. This does take a couple tries to get the right shot, but so worth it!





SWING IT

This is a fun one! Grab your purse or jacket and try swinging it towards the camera for a fun shot. My personal favorite angle is when the photographer is down lower and I swing my item towards them. Again, takes a few shots with the movement, but the final photo is worth it in my opinon. You can also get a variety of shots with either you being in focus or the item being in focus. 




LOOK BACK AT IT

Show off some shoulder and have your back turned to the camera and on three do a half twist to look back for the photo. This is perfect for showing off any back detail for your clothes or if your shoes have a fun bottom to them. 



SHOW SOME LEG

This is one of my favorites! All you have to do is kick up your leg for a fun movement shot. This is perfect for showing off your favorite pair of shoes. You can get creative and have your photographer be at a lower angle and shoot you kicking from the side or straight on.
