How to be Photo-genic

 

What does photogenic even mean anyways? “Hi I’m Christa, I”m going to teach you how to be genic in photos” hmm.

While we all stroke our chins and puzzle that one out, here’s a few tips ladies from the not-so-expert.

1. Breathe through your mouth. Simple but very effective, relaxes the mouth and let’s the perfect pouty lips surface 🙂

2. Pop your knee. Whichever knee is closer to the camera, bend it. This movement shifts your weight to your back foot/hip, creating long lean lines.

3. Drop the chin, just lower your chin a tad so your almost looking up through your eyelashes. Very flattering to the chin. While your at it, bring your nose a little to one side, keeping your eyes at center. Bringing your face to one side is always flattering. Girls look great in any twists/turns/angles.

4. Take a deep breathe  -literally, take a deep breathe and let it out, it will relax your shoulders and send a message to your brain that you are smokin hot.

5. Think triangles. triangles with your legs when your sitting, triangles in the space between your bent arms and waist. triangles are created anytime your bend those arms and bringing your hands back to some part of your body (arms above head, hands resting on head etc) start checking out poses from models and you’ll see LOTS of triangles.

6. Bring your hands in. Play with your hair, gently bring hands to cheek or chin-line, play with your jewelry, anything to keep those hands in the frame and close to the focus point.

7. Thin your thighs. When sitting down in a chair or any sitting pose, sit on the VERY edge of the seat, bringing your shoulders/chest forward a bit towards the camera. super flattering.

7. Be present in the moment. Best advice I can give, is really just be playful, romantic with the people you are with. Lucky for you if you have a handsome man next to you- if it’s a solo, just have fun, let your personality/expressions fly loose!

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
