  1. I love this post! You have such great tips, especially the one about creating a waist. That’s something I am always trying to do since I carry most of my weight there.

  2. This guide is SO helpful! I’m always looking to try new poses and definitely want to get those best angles. Thanks for sharing this!

  3. These are such excellent tips from the absolute PRO at gorgeous, flattering photos and angles. I feel like I’ve grown a lot over the past four years, but I still have tons to learn!

    • Oh, I’m hardly the pro, but like you are saying, there’s always much to learn!

  4. to be honest the language is a little triggering for me, someone who has suffered from malicious eating disorders. I know this is advice people are looking for and as a former ballerina I always tell people posture is key!

    • My apologies for any words that didn’t sit the right way. Thank you for being brave and sharing your experience. But yes, posture is a big part of it!

  5. Hello Carolyn. I never knew any of this and rarely have a photo of myself that I like, thank you for teaching this!

  6. omgggg this is sooo helpful, thank you so much, now i won’t be so frustrated looking at pictures

  7. Thank you for this! I’ve been looking for some tips for when I do my head shot photos and I wish I had seen this last week. I always tend to squish my arms up against my side and that makes them look bigger. If that is you in the picture, you are gorgeous. If its a model…well, then she is gorgeous too. However I don’t think it’s a possibility that the girl in your pictures could possibly ever look heavy or clunky no matter how she stood. If only you had used a bit bigger girl with maybe 10 or 20 extra pounds I could have seen the real difference posing could make, however, I get the idea! Great tips!

    • I’m glad this helped, Katie! I’m the person in the photographs so I just used myself as examples, but I appreciate the feedback of using different body shapes. Thanks so much for sharing!
