Are you and your friends looking for BFF or group posing ideas? If so, this blog post is for you.
One of my favorite things to do is take photos with my friends! I’ve been traveling with my blogger and photographer friends more often and I’ve found that we end up looking for friend posing ideas on Pinterest. I’ve figured out some go-to BFF poses and wanted to share them with you!
Whether you’re planning a group photo shoot with your best friends or posing to take group photo at graduation, I hope this blog post helps you!
Thank you to all my friends/photographers who have taken photos with me for this blog post:
How to Pose with Friends: 10 Ideas You and Your BFFs Can Try
1. Take a seat
If some of your friends 5 ft 10 in and some of your friends are 5 ft tall like me, taking a seat can help even out the height in photos. My friends and I love to mix in sitting photos to help add variety to our photo shoots.
2. Blow bubbles
My friend Giulia, Karya, and I recently took a long weekend trip to San Francisco. We made our obligatory stop at the Golden Gate Bridge and wanted to create a more fun, interesting photo. Giulia decided to bring bubbles to the bridge and the photos turned out so cute!
3. Grab coffee together
Coffee dates have become a staple for my friends and I. We love looking for adorable coffee shops at every city we stop by! I was so excited that we got to stop by Home cafe in San Francisco. The birthday café latte was yummy and adorable.
4. Put your arms around each other
If you’re looking for an easy pose with friends, putting your arms on each other’s shoulders is simple and comfortable to do. Giulia, Karya and I were literally walking around the city when we found this street in San Francisco’s Chinatown. We couldn’t resist a BFF inspired picture!
5. Walk through a flower field
Last month, my friend Maddy and I traveled up to Mount Vernon for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. We put together 6 Flower Field Photo Shoot Ideas to Try. If you and your friends are heading to a sunflower or lavender field this summer, walking or skipping through the rows of flowers is an easy way to pose with each other!
6. Whip your hair back and forth together
If you and your best friend are wanting to add movement to your photos, you can always whip your hair back and forth. It might take a few shots to get this picture right, but it always turns out so cute once you get the shot.
7. Link arms
If there are more than two of you in the photo, linking arms can be a great pose to have the entire group engaged for the photo. This is one of my go to poses for all my friend photos.
8. Walk up the stairs together
Another way to add movement in your group photos is to walk up the stairs. My advice would be to stagger which steps you and your friends are on. The stairs add symmetry and framing and your staggered positions make the photo even more interesting.
9. Throw up your peace signs
I’ve been throwing up my peace sign with my friends since as a kid. Peace signs and group shots still work really well together!
10. Hold hands
You probably learned how to hold your parents or best friends’ hands as a kid. Well this pose still works really well for best friend photo shoots and group photo shoots. Maddy and I held hands in the flower fields while Giulia and I held hands in front of this adorable pink house in San Francisco.
