  • Great Body Posture. Your body posture is powerful. It can tell someone a lot about you, and you can even use it to give yourself an attractive appearance. There are many simple tweaks that can easily enhance your appearance. A few examples of the perfect posture are as simple as:
    • Keeping your chin up and out, creating a perfect look to your neck and jaw line.
    • Pulling your shoulders back which will accentuate your collar bone for a petite and gorgeous appeal. It will also slim your arms and give you a more polished look.
    • Crossing your ankles, especially in a skirt or dress, will keep you from exposing too much thigh and will give you a leaner look.
    • Keep your arms from pressing against your body. By not pressing your arms tightly against your body, you will present a more flattering image.

  • Embrace Dark Clothing. As they say, black clothing can make you appear more seductive. Choosing darker shades will allow you to create a leaner look within your photos. In fact, you can choose quite a few clothing options in darker shades so that you still have a variety of clothes to choose from. Your darker clothing can be contrasted with a well-lit and colorful background, in case you were worried about your photos appearing too dim. Consult with your photographer to create just the right appearance for your photos.

  • Mirror Practice. One of the best ways to determine your perfect angles and sides is to experiment with looking at yourself in the mirror. Take a little time to try different body positions, angles, and lighting to determine how you will look within your photos. Pick a day where you have plenty of free time and alone time so that you can avoid feeling pressured or feel as if you have been put on the spot. Take a look at your body angles, try many different poses, and really get a feel for how your body photographs.
