3 Ways We Calm Senior Posing Anxiety | Senior Photos

The biggest fear we hear from our senior clients is that they don’t know how to pose for their senior photos. We get it. You aren’t supposed to know how to pose. That’s our job. Making you look your best and feel your best comes with us posing you the best.

Let’s talk about 3 ways we help you with posing anxiety!

#1. We actually SHOW you how we want you to pose! We don’t just tell you what to do. We’ll get in the pose so that you can actually see how it should look! This way, there are no doubts about what it should look like!

#2. We also like to take plenty of TIME when it comes to posing our clients! We don’t like to rush through a pose because that’s only going to make you even more nervous! We’ll go slow & easy!

#3. We’re also going to keep your poses NATURAL! We will watch for how you behave naturally and use that to pose you. A lot of our poses are inspired from things you do when the camera isn’t up to our faces.

Take a look at some of our favorite poses from our prompting below.

We can get a variety of natural looking senior pictures with this prompt. We ask our girls to sway back and forth, making sure to put one knee over the other.




Another pose that isn’t really a pose is when we ask our senior to walk away from me and when we say 3, they spin back around and look right at the camera. We really like the movement that’s created in the senior’s clothing and hair as well as the laughter that usually follows the spin.



And lastly, stairs! Posing for seniors is always easier with stairs. There are so many different ways to pose on the stairs. We will work through a few and find which one works best for you.


Relax and enjoy the moment. Let your photographer do the work. Don't overthink anything and just role with it. Your images will be beautiful!
