Posing for Engagement Photos in CT
Here’s the thing- you’re not a professional model, so no one is expecting you to show up to your session and know exactly what the heck you’re supposed to be doing. It’s not your job to have a clue about how to get those angles or know what works and what doesn't. Phew! I heard that sigh of relief all the way over here. That's right, take the pressure off!
Everything you think you know about Engagement photos in CT is probably wrong
Here’s the other thing- there’s very little posing that actually goes on during your session. Whaaaat?! I know, right?! When you think of a traditional photoshoot, you probably think of the photographer placing you, you staring right at the camera and flashing those pearly whites. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, it's just not my style and won't be a huge part of the flow of your session.
Living for the honest, real and vulnerable emotions
I live, breathe, and die for real emotion in photos. I want the big belly laughs with your head tossed back. I want your eyes tearing up when you first realized you were all in with each other. Give me all your HONESTY and vulnerable and forget about the posing.
My favorite photos include movement! If you’re not used to being in front of the camera, moving around will relax you so you can enjoy yourself and have fun. Capturing genuine emotions is what's really going on, so don't worry about making sure your foot is placed at at 45 degree angle.
The secret to posing is not posing
That's literally it! The key is to have fun. All you need to do is show up ready for anything and let me handle the rest. Trust me. I do this all the time and I solemnly swear that I’ll never let you have a moment in your shoot that you feel weird or be thinking about whether your arm is in the right place or your leg is popped enough or your chin angled just right. I gotchuuu!
What do you think?
It sounds too good to be true, right? It's really that simple. If you check out the rest of the photos all over my site, you'll see what I mean. It's the pure joy for me. Are you ready for your engagement photos in CT with me?
