Standing Poses: Standing up can feel vulnerable to some clients; like, what are your arms meant to do?! My first point of call would be to stand with your feet together and pop one knee in front of the other. Once you’ve popped that knee, your hips will naturally fall a little helping to accentuate your waist and highlight an extreme hip to waist ratio. Alternatively, if you’re pear shaped, doing this same pose at a 45 degree angle to the camera will make your hips look narrower and balance out your shoulders. After that we’ll pick a couple of places to put arms and/or hands; back of your neck, playing with your fabulous new hair do, on your waist, on your hip, tucket into your suspenders… there are a whole host of combinations.
