Let’s talk about speed posing for families! Now, before you jump to conclusions, I’m not talking about rushing through a session just to rush. If you’re a family photographer, you’ve noticed the littles don’t have a long attention span. Which means it’s important to capture the must-haves while you can! In situations like this, less can really be MORE. You need to get through your poses quickly and calmly before there is a meltdown to ensure everybody has a great experience! Before sharing my tips for posing quickly, be sure you register for this FREE posing class. You clearly have an interest in posing and there’s a lot to talk about beyond this video. The class is called “Keys to Effective Family Posing, Say Goodbye to Awkward and Stiff” and you’ll walk away with things you can apply today!
For starters, in order to achieve speed posing I recommend using a posing workflow! I’ll link the one I use HERE. Next, you want to move your clients as little as possible. I start with my core poses and add variation, keep the kids in the frame and swap out mom and dad. In my Family Posing Course I go in depth about the core poses I use – Line, Bunch, Front and Back. Working with families is a joy, but you have to know how to serve them with excellence. I’ve used speed posing to guarantee my clients get a full gallery. My mini sessions are 10 minutes, but because of all these tricks I’ve been able to master them in 7! So, how do you incorporate small movements to create a full gallery? Check out the video below and get all my tips and tricks!
