So You Want to Be a Model: Leg Pop

When you think of being in love and the way a first kiss makes you feel, many people think about the leg pop. When you’re swooning, the leg just wants to pop up. So, when you’re taking pictures with the one you love and it starts to feel more awkward than romantic, here are some pointers for getting a picture-perfect leg pop. Note that the leg pop is best when it creates a triangle.

Tippy Toes! I love the way this looks because it seems so sweet. It also really helps that being on your tippy toes helps to elongate your legs and makes your calves look good.



If you don’t need to go on your tippy toes because you’re wearing heels or are tall enough to reach your partner, then arch that back and create “shape”.  Put your hips into your partner. Hey hey… stop it with the sexual thoughts. It’s to create shape! 😉



When you don’t do it, will still obviously look sweet, it just won’t have the same long line.





I call this the leg pop lift. Do the leg pop while your mate picks you up. It looks sweet and endearing. right?



I love this shot. It’s got all the qualities of a great leg pop photo, and then some!



And here is one of my own from Hanssie Trainor. I’m wearing 4 inch heels, so I tried to work the lean into your partner move because tippy toes were not going to work. Did it work? Maybe I could use a little more curve next time, huh?



What other favorite couple’s move do you like to see in engagement and/or wedding photos?

    Thanks for the tips, Miss Hot Wings! I’m avidly taking mental notes. :) And the visuals of “good” vs. “bad” shots are super helpful.
