Work with a photographer that will help you.
I've been working with Shawntell for years. Before every session, she tells me that she's awkward & that I will need to help her pose. You would never know that from looking at her images. Working with an experienced photographer means having someone to guide you every step of the way. Not only will you receive assistance during your session, you receive help for picking your outfit & location. Your only job on the day of your session is to show up looking great &ready to have fun.
