Lots of these I know but I love the hand one, never thought about that. Some really good tips for anyone starting.


Posing & Expressions

If you are holding your phone or camera with one hand you may be more limited in this area. I tend to like selfies in bed when holding the camera. This can be super sexy first thing in the morning, for a super natural look. But, wherever you decide to pose and especially for sitting up or standing shots, make sure you are holding the camera from above. This will help ensure you don’t get the dreaded double chin and it’s a flattering angle for almost everyone.

For the actual pose, I favor shots that don't look too forced. Do this by adding energy to your pose - by fully committing to the pose, using your hands (or hand haha) and using your breath. I teach you how to do this in detail in a shoot with me but for now, let’s break them down into bite-sized pieces for you to practice

Arch like you mean it. Add curves by not only arching, but using your arms and legs. Try tipping one knee towards the other. Pop a shoulder towards your chin or push your hip out to the side and then angle your face in that direction too.

A relaxed mouth is much prettier than when forcing it into an expression. Definitely do not attempt duck face. Instead try these breathing exercises in your photos for a more pleasing look.

Exhale - lips parted, sighing loudly, breathing deeply out of your mouth, head tilted upwards and to the side.

Inhale - eyebrows raised slightly, neck elongated, sharp inhale through parted lips, facing the camera.

Genuine laughter is sexy too though. You can achieve this by turning your head to the side and laughing while facing upwards. Come on, give it a hearty try!

Spy Eyes - pretend you are a sexy spy with sexy secrets. I’m dead serious. I have coached this technique for years with my clients, to great effect. It not only puts you into character by adopting a confident alter-ego, but it gives you a sexy expression by speaking through your eyes. With spy eyes you are not merely looking at the camera but seeing into it’s very soul.

Hands- Use your hands to play with your hair, draw attention to your assets (tracing along your collarbone or décolletage with your middle finger, for example), or framing your face. Just remember you want delicate hands here. And, the side of the hand is always more attractive than the palm or backs of hands.
If you don't try, you don't know if you would have failed or succeed.

I always do the arched back when laying, it helps the boobs stick up. Always a open mouth looks sexy. Head tipped up, I always try to remember.I have learned that if the photo grapher can take pictures above you they are much better. Spy eyes is that sexy come get me look.

I like the last but have never tired it. Although I do put my hands on my hips or when I had long hair lift it up with my hands. Usually I have one hand at the side and the other doing something, now let your imagine run with that one. LOL....

All of those together make an regular person look way more professional. Also have never tired the shoulder up and head on the shoulder looking at the camera.

A couple of great idea.

My imagination is running wild about what your hand is doing. Playing with your hair or are you bare? ;)

All good advise Di, thanks.

With an irrational and suspicious goddess,
Some short tempered jealousy on the side...
And a bottle of wine that tastes like you...
... and a glass that's never empty...."

Thanks guys.
Thinker: Not sure I ever answered, the sexy come get me eye look is the one I like the best.
I have lots of tips and tricks. Backgrounds and no clutter to start with. Good day light can be worth a million dollars. I think the idea of teasing as you go and showing the goods is the best. I once chatted with a gal on a porn site and she posted a lots of her tips, like bending over if your arm in front of your tummy. Lift your chin and you won't have that double chin, and the photographer can take pictures some what under you will be the best, rather than standing straight on. The list goes on.
