Check out the Stephanie Pana Photography page where she continues to inspire over 20,000 people daily. 

We're thrilled to have worked with photographer Stephanie Pana -- one of the country's most talented teen portrait photographers -- on our Pose Like the Pros: Senior Portraits. This 150+ page guide has covered it all.

Pana details networking, casting calls, location scouting, props, editing and pricing. She also goes into the kind of detail on posing senior girls that you could only get from someone who's been doing it -- and with much success, we might add -- for years.

Pana doesn't just haphazardly slosh through the mud, either. She gets into the nitty gritty details of posing senior girls in order to bring out their personalities, make them feel beautiful and get the most flattering shots possible. You'll learn how to pose teen females sitting, standing, leaning, walking, lying and squatting. No detail is left out, either, as Pana makes sure to cover even the littlest things such as arm placement, hand positioning, leg placement and facial expressions.

Not only will you be glad you read this guide from front to cover, your clients will be ecstatic when you show them their photographs. And you know what a happy client means? More business!

Three Reasons You Need This Guide:

1. Stephanie Pana is one of the leading expert photographers when it comes to teen portraiture. Learn from the best to become the best.

2. You get mega bang for your buck. At over 150 pages chock-full of details, this is one of those guides you'll continue to learn from and refer to over the years.

3. Not only does this guide cover posing and editing, it discusses networking to garner more business, pricing schemes, location scouting and more. 

**Please note, all BP4U guides are ebooks and will be delivered electronically!

It's not just helped me with Seniors, but posing women in general. Great guide!” - Wendy

    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.
