Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
I’m so happy to say that over the past 8 years, my posing has really evolved. Thank goodness! haha. Sometimes I look back on photos from when I JUST started out and I think to myself, “What the heck was I thinking?!” Oh gosh, but we all live, learn, and grow! Today I wanted to share a posing tip that I LOVE to use when I’m “posing” my couples!
I put posing in quotations because I feel like I mostly give some fun prompts, with the occasional traditional pose. Overall, I like to think that I take a mixed approach! My goal is to make all of my couples FEEL and LOOK their absolute best! 🙂
Which brings me to today’s tip for all you wedding and portrait photographers out there! Back in 2014, I think, I took a workshop with Trevor Dayley, and it was the best! One line that he said has stuck with me to this day:
Don’t worry, this will be relevant!
I think it’s safe to say that a lot of us want to achieve some sort of intimate and romantic vibe while photographing our couples. One of the EASIEST ways to achieve that feel is to watch the hands! There should never be “dead hands.” By that, I mean there should never be hands just dangling. They should always have a purpose. All you have to do is change the placement of a hand and it changes the WHOLE look (i.e.”the phone number!”)! Here are a few examples!
Can you see how just changing the placement of a hand changed the whole feel? It made them look more in love and more intimate! And it’s SUCH an easy fix! This is my favorite posing tip to get photos that help showcase the love my couples feel for one another!
I hope that this can be helpful to someone today!!
