    "Simply put - WOW! These guides are amazing. Kimberly really gives great detail in describing her posing...hand placement, body angles, spacing, relationship to surroundings. It is the most detail I've seen in any guide whatsoever. Kimberly also shares her editing style and how she achieves it! The posing cards for printing are such an added bonus. I can't believe everything that is included." - Brooke T

    'After recently being given the opportunity to read, review and critique the, Boys senior guide, By Kimberly Reid and if I had five stars to give, I'd give them!This is an amazingly comprehensive guide, put together with every question answered you would have come up in your mind. It opens up and gives the reader a whole picture perspective, much like standing and watching Kimberly from over her shoulder. As a frequent buyer of BP4U guides, I keep going back for more because everything is explained in a clear, thoughtfully laid out format. Would I suggest this to any level of photographer? Yes, to anyone willing to take the plunge and add more to their style and workflow to make their clients go wow! The clean and easy to enjoy format made this a relaxing yet informative read. I look forward to more from this collaborative team!" - Tara

    "I have this guide; its very helpful and the guys seem to like the poses"- Aaron

    I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the very generous sale that you had on your posing guides. I bought the Senior boy and Senior girl guides and they are very well worth the price even if not on sale. The are the easiest to understand and use since they can be printed off to show the pose to the client. I'm taking pictures of High School Marching Band students tomorrow for a fundraiser and I'm going to use these trendy/fun poses for something refreshing instead of the stiff posed stuff that you usually see in Band pictures. Thanks so much!!! - Lori C

    "Really really liked this guide. I'm about to do my very first newborn shoot in one week exactly. I am so nervous about it, but reading this, I felt a sense of calm come over me. I feel like it is really preparing me for what I need to expect and not expect. What type of equipment/props I need to take, and loving the step by step posing. I also enjoy the easy to read format. I'm a super visual person, so this made it very easy to follow. And can I say I LOVE and adore and can't say how awesome the printable poses are." - Susan

    Are these posing cards printable?

    Yes. We include digital files in both high and low resolution - high res for printing and low res for mobile devices. These will print these off as a 3x5. Many of our clients will print these off, punch a hole in them, put a ring on them and put them in their camera bag. Makes a great way to get out of a bind if you're having a brain freeze during a session. Need help loading your posing cards to your iPhone/iPad/iPod? Click here for a tutorial.

    Can I print this guide?

    Yes, you most certainly can! If you'd prefer to read your guide in print instead of digitally, feel free to print this guide for your own personal use.
