My Go To Poses As A Plus Size Lifestyle Blogger

 



 As you can I see I have so much fun infront of the camera. When I'm taking photos I do have a few signature poses that help my shoot go smoothly. I'm not model but I do know what works for me when I comes to taking photos for my blog.  If you're a blogger or content creator or anyone who's looking for some fun poses to try for your next shoot, give these a try.

1. " Laughing At My Salad" : Throw your head back and laugh. If you google "Woman eating salad", You will see why this pose is called Laughing at My Salad.


2. Leg Crossover: I think this a flattering pose that will show your look off.




3. Drink and My Pose: Don't know what to do, pose with a beverage.





4. Hands in my Hair or Hat:  If you don't know what to do with your hands here are two poses you can try. Run your fingers through your hair or tip your hat off.





5. Throw Your Skirt or Dress:    I'm an awe of my when I see the perfect twirl from some bloggers. I figured out the major key to this pose. Have your photographer snap while you twirl or throw your skirt or dress. Movement is also a major key! 




6. Serving: So I've hit all the poses above know it's time to serve honey! 



7. Hands On Your Hips : This pose it perfect for flattering those curves. Make sure you do it effortlessly.



8. Look Back At It: This is the only time  you look back darling! lol When doing this pose make sure you take wide steps for more action and movement.

You can read up on My Bach Trip to Savannah HERE.  There are more than one way to style this sequin dress and today I'm sharing two ways that you style this sequin dress. Major key is to layer the dress and add some color.  No matter how you celebrate this year please remember to be safe and wear mask.

My Wedding Day Slay Details

 




As I promised I wanted to share details on my look for the wedding. I can be really indecisive when it comes to making big decisions especially for the big day. I couldn't decide if I wanted to wear my natural hair or wig.  I couldn't decide if I wanted a bold lip or natural lip. This was definitely a hard descion but once I made the decision I feel like I made a good one.

The first picture is the inspiration behind my hairstyle. I knew I wanted this look but the hard part was finding the perfect hairstylist the complete this look. After put out a message on Facebook I found the hairstylist I felt I could trust.  I thought I was going to purchase $200 worth of clip ins but I  forgot that I purchased clip-ins during quarantine  just in case. I'm glad I did because it saved me $200!  Thanks to Davids Bridal for gifting me my accessories for the big day. You can read all about that fund Collab HERE! 

 

As for my makeup I was stuck between wanting a subtle and natural look , or a bold and daring look.  I saw my makeup artist post a few looks from previous clients and I made a decision to go bold.  A bold lip and dramatic eyes for the big day. I wanted to feel romantic, sexy and have Timothy fall involve all over again.


As for my accessories, I found my earrings on SheIn for no more than $5. I also found the girls earrings on there as well.  I was having a hard time finding the perfect statement earrings for my look but SheIn came through just in time. It wasn't hard picking my veil because I already knew I wanted a cathedral veil, long, flow and dramatic. Before COVID I was going to add some jewels to it but things didn't work out like they were supposed to.
