posing 101

Welcome to Posing 101
If you have a fashion blog or are planing on starting one there are five moves you have to nail.
In no particular order:

1. Hand on hip, crossed legs.
Your basic, go to pose.

2. Looking down at your shoes.

3. Fake laughing at something. 
Trust me there is nothing funny about taking millions of pictures, just ask my husband.

4. The side profile.

5. Playing with your hair.
Make it look natural though, since you never play with your hair in real life.

And that's about it. Once you get these poses down you are ready to be a successful fashion blogger!

Seriously though, I know I do all five of these poses every time we take pictures. It's so hard to not do something you're already comfortable with! And then after doing those poses I post the same type of pictures because those are the ones I like! 

What a dilemma. #firstworldprobs

Oh well, I'm going to try to be more creative in my poses and with our shoots.


  1. I go through the same poses as well. I have such a hard time figuring out what to do. These are all fantastic!

  2. Haha I actually stopped following one blogger on IG because I realized she looked at her feet and/or had her hand in her hair in EVERY pic! And once I noticed it, I couldn't get over it. I can't imagine how hard it has to be, trying to pose for a zillion pics and trying to keep it fresh!

  3. haha i thought this was hilarious! :)

  4. You captured my sentiments exactly! Thanks for the giggle :)

  5. Yep, I do the same 2 poses over and over. Makes it easier when you know what works. :) I'm going to have to give some of these a try. Thanks for the tips! :)
